This delightful villa sits in the same gated grounds as Villa Ekavi, and shares the same outstanding sea views in this much sought after stretch of coastline. The house is decked out in contemporary country style, with high beamed ceilings, traditional wrought iron beds and crisp linen. Outside, the pool area lets you enjoy the brilliant southern sunshine all day long, with plenty of shady terracing for your morning coffee or a long lazy lunch.
Villa Nafsika's location is excellent – just a short stroll into the village of Agios Stephanos, where you can shop for basic provisions, dine on fresh Greek delicacies with the sea lapping by your feet or hire a little boat to explore this fabled coastline. Kerasia beach and taverna are just a few hundred metres further, or for those who enjoy exploring on foot, there are links up to a coastal path to Kouloura, Kalami and Agni.
Whilst Villa Nafsika shares the same driveway and estate as Villa Ekavi, both houses are totally private and separate from each other. They can, however, be rented together and would work well for larger groups or two families holidaying together but seeking a bit of independence.

We’ve had a brilliant first time to Corfu. Nafsika has proven a perfect, relaxing base and we’re very taken by Agios Stephanos. We can thoroughly recommend a day on a boat from San Stephanos – great fun and also day trips to Old Perithia and Corfu Old Town are well worth it. Thank you to everyone at Simpson Travel – we’ll be back.
Robbie & Sophie – October 2021
What can we say about our two weeks in fabulous Nafsika? Rain…thunder…wind…lightning…rain…rain…rain! Jackie says the worst storms she remembers in 20 years. But, we have had a wonderful two weeks nevertheless. The few sunny days we got we enjoyed Kerasia and Kalami beaches. Agios Stephanos is a perfect setting and the tavernas are great. Gallini was our favourite, wonderful food and professional service. We took a trip to Old Perithia, which was very interesting. On the way back down there is a great little shop called Bee Happy – local honey, olive oil, soaps, etc. We will definitely be back to explore some more. Thank you Jackie and Julie.
Claire & Mike – October 2021
A really lovely week at Nafsika! We arrived in the rain but the week turned out to be wonderful for this time of year – gorgeous sunshine. The boys loved the pool and we spent much of our week at Avlaki beach. Absolutely crystal clear waters and wonderful for swimming. We had a lovely drive up to the monastery – at the highest point of the island – just before sunset and the views were breathtaking! Lovely meals locally at the harbour. Wonderful views and sunrises made Nafsika a very special place.
Kathryn & Stephen & boys – October 2021
We once again cannot fault the service of Simpson or the villa, both absolutely fabulous. Our small downside was that it rained for 10 of the 14 days we were there, torrential for large parts of it so even sightseeing was knocked on the head. A very different holiday indeed. But we had a lovely villa so we couldn't complain. We are keeping our fingers crossed for better weather next time with our Simpson holiday to Majorca next May!
Claire Dennys – September/October 2021
An excellent relaxing week. Nice villa and pool. Thank you to Simpson for organising holidays.
Maureen & Colin – September 2021
We enjoyed a very relaxing week in Villa Nafsika – chilling by the pool or visiting local beaches. Fantastic bakery in Sinies, which is really good for early morning croissants and coffee.
Alex, Hayley, Sanari & Gina – August 2021
We went to Nafsika for a week, first time in Corfu for years but have travelled with Simpson before. We have always rated Simpson’s service but this time it was the best yet from booking through to the airport home. The villa just above Agios Stephanos is lovely with a superb pool and the view is magnificent. Jackie, the concierge, was so helpful, particularly booking tavernas and she arranged for a ‘prosecco surprise’ for a birthday dinner. She also printed and dropped off the Covid certificates for our trip home. I couldn’t find fault with anything and would highly recommend Simpson Travel. Thank you.
Jennifer – via TrustPilot – August 2021
We had a very comfortable week in Nafsika. So nice to get away after such an awful year. We dined out a great deal and The White House was the best – a long lunch and then relaxing on our bean bags for the afternoon.
Tom & Charlotte Gaisford – July 2021
With a heavy heart we leave after a lovely week – first time in Corfu. Jackie very attentive and helpful – thanks too for the bottle for my husband’s 60th. No complaints, amazing thunderstorm! Look forward to coming back and doing very little again.
Hilary, Tim & Sophie – October 2019
Wonderful stay at Nafsika. Simply gorgeous! Fantastic, comfortable villa with everything a young family might need. Superb views. Agios Stefanos is the perfect setting. Particularly enjoyed renting a boat from San Stefanos and sailing round to the excellent White House at Kalami – great food and cocktails. The beach at Kalamaki is perfect for young children – sandy and shallow waters. Jackie’s help and advice was brilliant. We’ll be back.
Alex, Jonathan & Laurence – October 2019
What a fabulous two weeks we have had in Nafsika. We have relaxed by the pool in glorious sunshine and spent lovely afternoon on Kerasia beach after lunch at our favourite taverna there. Our special restaurants to mention are Gallini and Eucalyptus down in Stefanos and Agni Taverna – just a short water taxi away. We hired a boat for the day which was lovely and spent hours admiring the fabulous coast and views. Toped of with a marvellous lunch at The White house (great tomato risotto). Corfu town is well worth a visit, strolling through the little cobbled streets and taken coffee in the famous Liston overlooking the cricket pitch. A special thank you to Jackie for always being on hand and securing the best tables for us. Also to Julie and Thanos for keeping everywhere clean and tidy. Altogether a fabulous holiday and we will be back.
Wendy & Keith – September 2019
Our second week in Corfu was made lovely and relaxing at Nafsika. The sea view couldn’t be better from watching party boats to super yachts! We visited many restaurants, the best being Eucalyptus, Tavernaki (Kassiopi) and Gallini – get seated on the jetty! The trip to Corfu Town via Dinos’ boat is highly recommended. Only 30min journey to enjoy 4 hours to explore the Venetian-inspired town. Mostly we have just relaxed by the pool and Agios Stefanos is an ideal location for it has Damianos Bar (great cocktails) and two supermarkets.
The Haywood family – September 2019
Nafsika is a lovely roomy villa and is exactly as described on the website, the view over to Albania was wonderful. Thanks for a memorable holiday.
Vilma & Arfon Edwards – September 2019
This was our fourth Simpson Travel villa. Wonderful service and the villa was just what we expected. A great location, spotlessly clean and well equipped. We will be booking another fabulous Simpson villa for 2020.
Kay Lyons – September 2019
We have fallen in love with Corfu and Nafsika. We have become very lazy and spent whole days swimming and checking out the huge boats. We’ve played a lot of UNO too! Jackie has been amazing, books everything you need and pops in for a chat. We will be back next year for more of San Stefanos and Nafsika.
The Halford family – August 2019
We love Nafsika – utterly comfortable, well-equipped, with an unbeatable view. It is professionally and brilliantly looked after by all of the excellent Simpson team. Thank you Jackie and the others for all you have done to give us such a fantastic holiday.
Sarah & Brent – August 2019
We have had a wonderful week. Lovely villa for a relaxing pool, nice dining area and barbecue. Clean and tidy – perfect. Thank you.
The Brown family – July 2019
Another lovely two weeks at Nafsika – total relaxation and watching the boats go by. We really appreciate the changes that Simpson is making to cut down on waste – the recycling bins are a great addition. Jackie (as ever) keeps the villa looking perfect, and is so friendly. Nothing is too much trouble for her, the perfect rep and the best we have ever had. Looking forward to coming back next year (already booked) and doing it all again.
Karinna & Ian – June/July 2019
A well-appointed property, comfortable, clean and with some wonderful views. Enjoyed walking into ‘town’ for a coffee or a meal. Can quite understand why people return. Thanks to Jackie for her help and Julie who did sterling work with the cleaning.
Peter & Gill Rodgers – May 2019
Nafsika is very comfortable. The location is excellent for boat watching and for walking to and from the tavernas in Agios Stefanos. All the village tavernas are to a good standard with Kochilla, Galanis and Karissia (drive) our favourites. Visit to old Perithia wall worthwhile. Best wishes to all Simpson staff – excellent as usual.
Tom & Linda – September 2018
First time on Nafsika, Lovely villa. Extremely relaxing. The sun rises are amazing. Huge thanks to Jackie. She cannot do enough for her guests. Ask her to book tables for dinner as you are well taken care of. Highlights: Lunch at Agni bay and Kerasia (Great Moussaka). Dinner at Galinis – Table on the jetty. Thanks to Jackie, Thassos and the pool lads. Took great care of everything. So much more to see. Will be back. A truly wonderful relaxing week. Thank you!
Jaqui & Mandy – September 2018
Yet another wonderfully peaceful holiday in Nafsika – our favourite villa on our favourite Ionian island. Days were spent in total relaxation watching the boats go by. Julia and Tassos keep the villa immaculate and Jackie, the Simpson Travel representative, is a total star!
Karenna & Ian – September 2018
We had a lovely holiday at Nafsika. The best things about Corfu are…. Aqualand (giant blue slides), renting a boat, going to lots of beaches, finding an octopus, doing lots of snorkelling. The restaurants are amazing. The pool is lovely, so go in it every day.
Annie (aged 8) & Grace (aged 11) – August 2018
We had a fantastic time at Nafsika. We had lovely meals on the terrace at Galini and Kochili in Agios Stephanos (and Jackie, the Simpson Travel representative, will book a table for you). Great beaches with easy parking at Kerasia and Kalamaki. There is lovely snorkelling everywhere. Hire a boat and take it to Agni for lunch, but book in advance.
Ben, Rosie, Grace & Annie – August 2018
We had a lovely relaxing week. Nafsika is a great villa in a lovely location – there is plenty to do and see. This was our third time in Corfu, but we managed to find the very picturesque Nissaki Bay with the highlight being the watersports run by a lovely family. The parasailing was well worth the drive and the children loved it. Escape the heat and head for the sandy beach of Kalamaki north of Kassiopi – it has a beautiful breeze and warm waters that are perfect for a late afternoon. We had a great holiday and it was a shame to leave.
Euan, Gerry, Maddy & Paddy – August 2018
This was our first time staying in Nafsika. It’s a fantastic villa, well appointed, quiet, with stunning views. We enjoyed Corfu Town by night, hiring a boat and the waterpark. We also enjoyed several restaurants – Taverna Agni for a special dinner and the oldest taverna in Old Perithia.
Tanya, David, Alex & Annabelle – July 2018
This was our third year at Nafsika. We enjoyed our stay as much as our first year. The people are so friendly. It’s a marvellous place to just relax and let the world go by.
Sue, Mike & Ann – June 2018
A wonderful service from start to finish. Nafsika is exactly as described. The sea views are stunning and the villa is very well appointed. The Local Simpson Travel representative was both knowledgeable and efficient. All in all, it was a special holiday to remember. We will use Simpson again for our holiday next near.
Dr & Mrs Briess – July 2018
This was our fourth visit to Nafsika and again it was an excellent and restful holiday. The villa is immaculate and the local Simpson Travel representative, housekeeping and gardening staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. Every year it feels like going home and we have already booked for next year!
Marion & Martin – June 2018
I would thoroughly recommend Simpson Travel. Every contact was professional, personable and efficient. We had a fantastic holiday that went smoothly and they have a fantastic operation that is thorough and extremely well run. We will be a repeat customer and are looking forward to our next holiday with you. A big thank you to all Simpson Travel staff.
Mrs Wass – October 2017
Fabulous villa; really enjoyed the views, especially the setting sun on the hills of Albania followed by the full moon. Warm welcome at all the tavernas – hard to have a particular favourite! Great swimming and snorkelling at Kerasia and beautiful walks around the coast. Enjoyed the lovely warm sunny weather immensely, including a great boat trip around the coast! We loved Nafsika and we hope we can return someday. Simpson Travel and Jackie have been great. Thank you. We've all had an amazing week.
The Hunters– October 2017
Nafsika has a lovely location with beautiful views and a lovely pool. We spent a lot of time just relaxing in the shade. The living space is a little cosy, so not for a family who plan to stay in a lot. But it is all very clean and well-maintained. Agios Stephanos is a pleasant village with five or six tavernas and there's plenty to explore nearby.
Mr Wallace – September 2017
Fabulous holiday – our sixth on Corfu and first in Nafsika. We loved the villa – great views, great bathrooms! We've had great weather – hope it's not too hot for those who come after us!
The Hilliers – August 2017
Fantastic two weeks here at Nafsika. Absolutely loved the villa; so peaceful, beautiful views and a wonderful team. Many thanks to Jackie for all your help and to Julie and Tassos for keeping the place lovely and clean. We don't want to go home and will definitely be back soon. Have done many villa holidays with different companies and Simpson Travel is definitely the best! The little grey, stripey cat is lovely and friendly. We hope he is looked after, he is a real cutie – we will miss him.
The Dockerys – August 2017
Third time at this villa, rep and staff were excellent and could not recommend the experience highly enough. Thanks Simpson Travel once again.
Mr Girling – June 2017
We have tried the rest now and we have found the best, Simpson Travel. From booking to arriving and departing, along with the excellent quality of the villa, we have had a wonderful holiday. Thank you.
Mrs Stevens – September 2016
We had high expectations of Simpson Travel – they did not disappoint.
Mr Malcomson – May 2016
This was the second time we have been on a Simpson Travel holiday and once again we could not have asked for a better service, location, villa, representatives. We cannot recommend Simpson Travel highly enough after spending a week at Agios Stephanos in Corfu, one of our best holidays!
Mr Girling – May 2016
We are now packing up after spending a wonderfully relaxing week here at Nafsika. Lovely villa with fantastic views.
Mr Boyce – July 2015
My children described our holiday as the best ever and that was probably due to very relaxed parents thanks to Simpson Travel taking care of everything!
Mrs Meehan – July 2015
Once again Simpson Travel came up trumps with arranging our holiday. The villa was beautifully located with stunning views. The services of the representative (Peter) were excellent – very knowledgeable and helpful as were the other staff at the airport. Everything ran smoothly. The welcome pack was excellent and far above the standard of normal welcome packs. Will definitely travel with Simpson Travel again.
Mrs Morgan – June 2015
A perfect holiday at Villa Nafsika. It's a quiet location with amazing sea views, very comfortable accommodation, beautiful swimming pool and just 10 minutes' walk to Agios Stephanos with its excellent tavernas and shopping facilities. To the south of our villa another beautiful 10-minute walk to the breathtaking Kerasia beach with its crystal clear water and an excellent taverna for a good value lunch on the edge of the water. Corfu we will return!
Mr Minder – June 2015
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.
* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
A hundred stories unfold on lovely Corfu… Tales of gods and goddesses, Phoenicians and Venetians, vibrant towns and sleepy villages.

Follow in the footsteps of Lawrence and Gerald Durrell with a luxurious retreat near Agios Stephanos, or venture North West, to enjoy more sandy beaches and scenic coastal drives.
To help you make the most of your holiday in Corfu, our collection includes a magical range of luxury villas and a charming beachfront hotel overlooking Avlaki Bay. Choose a romantic cottage by the water's edge for an idyllic couples' retreat or a contemporary family villa complemented by our private nanny service, for a relaxing holiday in the elegant North East of the island.
