Ouranos is the Greek word for sky, and a fitting name for this magnificent new villa, nestled in perfect seclusion between the endless blue of the heavens above and the sea below.

It takes vision and enormous skill to build in such a spot, and the designer-owner of Ouranos (who is also the brains behind Simpson Secret Corfu) has drawn on years of experience to deliver an exceptional yet understated holiday home within easy reach of Nissaki and all the attractions of Corfu’s north east coast. The interiors are beautifully finished using natural materials and a neutral palette, creating a calming atmosphere that invites you to relax as soon as you walk in the door. Clean lines and uncluttered spaces draw your eye to the view, a breathtaking sweep of olive green and sapphire blue that stretches as far as Corfu town and the Greek mainland beyond. This glorious panorama is yours to savour from virtually every corner of the house, with glass-panelled balconies to ensure that nothing breaks your line of sight. With ample sunny and shady spots, you can spend the entire day outside, from the cool of early morning to the pale lilac glow that signals evening drinks on the terrace or perhaps a last swim before dinner.

Stylish, comfortable and totally private, Ouranos is honeymoon heaven, but also easily large enough for two couples or a family with older children. And despite the hideaway feel, it’s just five minutes’ drive to Nissaki and Kaminaki, putting you at the heart of all the classic boats-and-beaches charm and excellent taverna dining that give this coast such enduring appeal.

Customer feedback

We had a wonderful stay at Ouranos villa. It was a comfortable, clean, well equipped and secluded, perfect for the two of us. The views are absolutely spectacular and the photos don’t do it justice! We’d definitely recommend a stay at this villa.
Victoria Chastney, May 2022

A really enjoyable stay in this lovely villa with its fabulous views across the bay. We would really recommend Glyfa – the best way to arrive is definitely by boat, we hired from Alex at Agni Boats, a great service. We also enjoyed Vitamins – really friendly service and straightforward Greek food at very good prices. The White House was wonderful for a special meal out – everything we had was delicious but we would especially recommend the deconstructed lemon pie. The Museum of East Asian Art in Corfu Town is definitely worth a visit especially as it is housed in the Palace of St Michael and St George so you get to look around there too. We enjoyed circular walks from Paelokastritsa and Old Perithia – great views from both and walking with a herd of mountain goats (and bells) was an unforgettable experience. Thank you Simpon Travel and Shay.
Tim & Diana Saunders – October 2021

Wonderful time and such a special place to stay. The drive up made for an adventure in itself but it was worth it. Happy days spent on boats and beaches, soaking up the sunshine and the kind hospitality of Corfu. We particularly enjoyed Agios Stephanos and had a number of good meals at Eucalyptus. Avlaki was also a nice beach to visit, both by road or boat, and we had amazing lunches at Avlaki Restaurant. Highly recommend Fontas Boats in Nissaki – both in terms of boats but also for local recommendations and advice. Finally, thank you to Shay for looking after us so well! A really lovely week in a stunning villa on a very special island. Thank you.
Paul, Anna, Phoebe & Ned – October 2021

Not so fortunate with the weather this past week, but we feel very fortunate to have stayed at Ouranos – a wonderful place. Fantastic views, lovely pool, amazing stylish interiors. Shay at Simpson and the owner could not have been more helpful. Everywhere we ate was brilliant but can particularly recommend Eucalyptus at Agios Stephanos.
Paul & Deborah – October 2021

The Bond Lair….! Fabulous villa. Stunning views. Couldn’t ask for more. Can recommend Glyfada, Arillas and Barbati beaches. For food head to Kassiopi – lots of lovely restaurant choices, and a bit of life about it. Thanks Simpson for a great holiday – will use you again for another destination.
Matthew, Michelle & Tobi – October 2021

Amazing, amazing, amazing….the views, the location and the villa so much so that we never felt the need to leave. When we did finally venture out, we contacted Jackie who was super helpful and booked us into the local restaurant, Glyfa, as well as organising transport. Glyfa is a must – fresh seafood and a great wine list with excellent service. As ever, thanks to the Simpson team for a fantastic holiday and amazing, personalised service.
Nat & Michelle – September 2021

Thank you very much for this magical villa and holiday. We all wish we could stay but we have to leave so, we treasured every moment in Greece..
The Harris family – September 2021

As a couple newly in love and venturing on our first holiday together, we could not have hoped for a more perfect stay. The beauty of the views, the attention to detail – all make being here effortless. Our favourite places were Agios Stefanos where we ate at Eucalyptus then moved along to the beach where the bay makes for gorgeous swimming. Glyfa was another wonderful restaurant and so close to the villa. The drive up the mountain made for a lot of fun and arriving home was a joy! Had a wonderful holiday.
Charlie & Simon – September 2021

Wow! What a fantastic villa! This new villa has everything you need. The view is mesmerising and so peaceful. The owner’s attention to detail is exceptional. We loved Glyfa and Vitamins and Nissaki beach was lovely. We will return. Thank you Jackie, Shay and Bev.
Colin & Deb – September 2021

Our stay at Ouranos has been FANTASTIC! We have enjoyed waking up every morning to the incredible views. We visited the Old Town in Perithia and ate at Foros restaurant, which is a must. For croissants/early morning breakfast, go to Pignata in Sinies. Best local restaurant is Glyfa. Visit the west side to see La Grotta and go to the Seventh Heaven for cocktails and a beautiful sunset, but also have breakfast in Akrotiri in Arillas!
The Dana family – August 2021

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, 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.
