Callista House Greece, Paxos

One of the joys of Paxos is following the many winding lanes leading through dappled terraces and peaceful olive groves to wonderful vantage points looking out to sea. It is at the end of such a lane, set in two acres of grounds, that three houses enjoy one of the highest and most central points of the island surrounded by cypress, fruit and olive trees.

Callista House, built in dry-stone and traditional materials yet with a contemporary feel, is stylish, cool, well-equipped and designed to maximise space and privacy inside and out. With its own private infinity swimming pool and a delightful shaded terrace, Callista faces west and enjoys sea views and the spectacular Ionian sunsets.

  • Our 7th visit to Paxos over the years, the first time in June - lovely and quiet but still hot. A week goes by so quickly but we will be back - can't keep away! Mrs Harris - June 2015
  • We have had an outstanding time here in Paxos and we really enjoyed looking up at the stars on deckchairs at night. I would recommend it to everyone. Rose Platt - Aged 10 - August 2014
  • We must admit it's a truly amazing experience to wake up to birds and the sun. We've had a wonderful time in Paxos and will definitely be coming back! Turnbull - August 2014
  • Lovely and peaceful island. Lovely house and pool and gorgeous sunsets made for a very restful holiday. FAB! EDWARDS Family - July 2014
  • Callista is a beautiful villa with panoramic views. The accommodation is exactly as described and was very spacious for accommodating our family of five and in hosting other families for meals. Mrs Waller - August 2013
  • It is nice to know what happened to Simply Travel as my husband had a number of holidays with Simply (before the company was sold) and was very impressed. When he found out the connection he said it made sense why Simpsons was such good quality! It is very useful to have a range of smaller villas as it can be quite difficult to find ones suitable for two people. Simpsons is likely to be the first website we look at for our next villa holiday. Ms Pettifer - June 2012

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themelves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide.

We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

Grading Criteria:


Position, view, serenity, privacy


Space, style, furnishings and interiors


Property enhancements


Proximity to beach, restaurant and shops


For further clarification on Facilities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
