  • Impeccable handsome house
  • Built to a high specification
  • Beautifully presented
  • Nissaki/tavernas/beach 5-minute drive

Cast from the same impeccable mould as neighbouring Paleo Petres, this handsome new property is constructed entirely from locally sourced and reclaimed materials, lending a pleasing air of permanence and minimising its impact on the beautiful natural surroundings on the hillside above Nissaki. The views from this lofty vantage point are sublime, an uninterrupted sweep of infinite blue with the distant hills of Albania and the Greek mainland silhouetted against the skyline.

Petrapoula has been finished to an exceptionally high standard, tastefully understated with an emphasis on practical luxuries such as the handmade kitchen, quality linens and eco-friendly cooling system. With numerous terraces and balconies to choose from, laze in the sun or snooze in the shade as the mood takes, and after a day on the water or by the pool, the main dining terrace is the perfect place to gather for an apéritif with family or friends before dinner in Nissaki just five minutes’ drive away.

Although Petrapoula and Paleo Petres share a driveway, they are completely detached and separated by high stone walls ensuring privacy for all guests; they may also be rented jointly to provide a spacious venue for groups or an extended family gathering.

Customer feedback

Beautiful villa – fantastic views! Beds are very comfortable – lots of nice areas to sit outside. We had a lovely stay, a huge thank you to the Simpson Travel team who were very helpful when needed!
The Barber Family – August 2017

We have had the most wonderful week imaginable in Corfu. The villa is absolutely amazing, stunning views, gorgeous design, comfortable beds and everything we could possibly want provided. We have adored our time in the house and our holiday has been relaxed and peaceful. We couldn't have asked for a more fabulous week – thank you so much. We will all miss this beautiful place. A huge thank you to Debbie and Joy and the Simpson Travel team who have been so helpful, considerate and pro-active throughout our stay.
Tor Seas and Family – August 2017



The complete package (air tickets, car hire, villa) all coming from the one operator made the planning much, much, much, easier. The timings for the flights (out and back) were very good...appropriate for making the most of the holiday, with the least impact/stress. The villa was brilliant and the local support from Simpson Travel was just as good as the villa. A great holiday.
Mr Cornick – September 2016

Just wonderful – really missing the view from the villa and can't wait to go back.
Mr Rowe-Parr – August 2016

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.
