"Villa Sevdam and its location is the loveliest place we have visited. A little part of paradise! Our purpose was to relax and enjoy ourselves and that is what we achieved here in Söğüt. We experienced great hospitality and lovely meals at each of the restaurants we ate at. Mehmet’s, Eruti, Deniz Rizi, Captain’s Table, Nautilus and Saranda. An idyllic place to be at.  Jessica’s assistance and response throughout our stay was immediate and always helpful. Housekeeping and fresh bread daily. Wonderful Villa Sevdam – sad to be leaving. We will come again. Loved the vase with fresh flowers."

" We have been so lucky to stay in the wonderful Villa Mimi! Our grateful thanks to our hosts in opening the villa especially for our visit – we are truly thankful and we will never forget the most spectacular views we have ever encountered on our travels and holidays to Greece. The villa is stunning and luxurious in every way and we have enjoyed the pool. Our boat trip around the island was a particular highlight, the caves and the lovely lunch at Spilia beach.  We have enjoyed delicious food and our favourite has been Tilevoes where we ate amazing seafood many times. Meganissi was very quiet when we arrived but we are so pleased that visitors are returning to experience the beauty of the island and the welcome of the people here.  Thank you for a memorable holiday."

"Having rented in France and Italy every summer for over 20 years, this was our first booking with Simpson Travel and I was very impressed – particularly given all the Covid-19 complications. The family said Hameau des Anges was the best and they would love to go back, which is high praise from quite a ‘picky’ group! Vaucluse has always been one of my favourite areas and the house was a perfect base as everyone could do as much – or as little – as they wanted!  So the energetic went to vineyards, markets and cycled for miles, while others made the most of the pool and garden."

"This is just the loveliest villa we have ever stayed in. We loved trulli living and the circular pool. We also loved exploring and would recommend Alberobello, Locorotondo, Ostuni, Martina Franca and dinner out in Monopoli and Polignano A Mare. Apparently Puglia means ‘land with little rain’ but we managed to get two days of rain. We escaped it one day and travelled to Matera, which is very lovely and interesting. We shall be back – thank you."

"We are the luckiest people in Panzano! To be the first to stay in this amazing home in this magical village will be our eternal delight! This will be the first of many visits to see Panzano again but more to see Christine, John, Leandra, Lorenzo, Dario…and all of the amazing people of the village that made us all so welcome. We have had the time of our lives. We will miss you…until next time!"

"Absolutely amazing – we had a wonderful time. The villa was excellent and made perfect by its own platform to the sea with turtles at the bottom to swim with! Looked after incredibly well by Zeze who answered our every need! Thank you to Simpson Travel for making this work in this particularly crazy time…well done to all involved!"

Sally Roper – Turkey, July 2020

"I cannot recommend Simpson Travel enough. If you are concerned for your holiday, then don’t be, you will have a wonderful time. Everyone we met was just as happy to see us as we were to see them! This was also the case for all the shopkeepers and restaurant staff, who were so happy to be in business again, so we ate out as much as possible to help them out. In these uncertain times, Simpson provided stability and kept us informed of any changes and, as a result, we thoroughly enjoyed our time away, giving us a much-needed break from the British media storm. As there were no Covid-19 cases on Paxos and very little on Corfu at all, we felt secluded and safer than we do at home!  Thank you Simpson Travel – see you next year!!"

"Beautiful villa in great location. The photos do not do it justice."

Sarah Bishop – Turkey, July 2020

"Wow! What a fantastic holiday. Really felt for the family who run this hotel given the drop in numbers due to Covid-19, but they made sure there was little or no impact on our holiday. There was hand sanitiser everywhere and all staff wore masks at all times – we felt totally safe and very looked after. We couldn't recommend them or Vicki, our Simpson rep, more highly. Nothing was too much trouble and great recommendations for eating out. The hotel is exactly as it is represented on the website and is gorgeous!"
