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.

  • Flexible travel options, including flights and transfers or accommodation only.


  • "The photographs of the accommodation, Simpson Secret – Akyaka, are true, and there are no surprises when you arrive – in fact they do not do the villa justice. We also appreciated the little extras."

  • "Simpson Secret – Lefkada is a terrific villa, in a very beautiful setting. You share the tiny bay with day visitors on boats and on foot from other villas 'up the hill', but they go home at the end of the day, and you do not - tranquillity and beauty are yours."

  • "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."

  • "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 – Epiros Coast, Sivota 2017

  • "This Simpson Secret was all we hoped it would be. It has a lovely location with superb views. It is magnificently maintained, both in the villa, the gardens and the pool. Yet again, Simpson Travel has come up trumps."
