Simpson Secrets

From time to time, our search for exceptional accommodation leads us to some real hidden gems: villas tucked away in tiny villages, embraced by rolling hills or just a few steps away from a secluded beach. Many have stunning views, others offer perfect privacy, but wherever you choose to stay, you'll find a truly unique holiday experience.

We call them our Simpson Secrets. Some are relatively easy to get to, others take you on ferries and into corners of the Mediterranean that are worth the time it takes just to get there. That's why we describe them as perfect for the adventurous at heart – although your dedicated Simpson Travel representative is only ever a phone call away, even if your blissful seclusion means they can't visit in person.

  • “A really brilliant experience from booking to returning home. "The road less travelled" proved to be a lovely villa on a beautiful headland over an almost empty beach with crystalline waters.....perfect. Exceptional service on arrival and overall highly recommended.”

    Miss Bunting, Simpson Secret – Epiros Coast, 2016

  • "Perfect location to relax and recharge your batteries... Stunning views from the patio mean you may not want to leave, but when you do the nearest village of Sivota (15 mins drive) is delightful with tavernas, mini market and bakers. The offer of a delivered wine selection was a superb idea and meant we had hand-picked delicious wines the day after we arrived, now that's service!"

    Jason Taylor, Simpson Secret – Lefkada, 2017

  • "Our experience with Simpson was second to none. From start to finish we could not have wished for more and our rep was outstanding. Everything, and I mean everything, was just excellent."

    Stuart Rimmer, Simpson Secret – Akyaka, 2017

  • “Everything from looking at the website to choosing the holiday went like clockwork. No stress no worries. Just a smooth easy ride. We both miss it already!”

    Mr Knox, Simpson Secret – Crete, 2015

  • "We felt honoured to be the pioneers to stay at Simpson Secret Antipaxos – what a privilege! We had an awesome week full of adventure, sun and relaxation. The house is amazing – we enjoyed most evenings in the plunge pool cooling down from the day"

    Mrs Westby, Simpson Secret - Antipaxos, 2015
