With its tiny hidden beaches and secluded swimming spots, north eastern Corfu is just the place you might expect to find a Simpson Secret; ideal for the more independent traveller, yet still within easy reach of the small and rather exclusive villages that cling to its unspoilt coastline.

This Secret sits tucked in amongst olive trees in its own private grounds, with the calm blue waters of Nissaki bay lapping gently below. The setting may be timeless, quintessential Corfu, but this stylish new villa is totally 21st century, with tasteful contemporary décor and wi-fi-controlled air-conditioning, TV and lighting. Smart technology aside, the real beauty of this spot is the view; park yourself on the terrace with a book and something chilled from the handy pool fridge, and savour the ever-changing outlook as the sun makes its languorous way across the infinite blue of a Greek island sky.

Once evening falls you can dine in romantic seclusion beneath the stars, or if you feel like a little company and some authentic Greek cuisine, you’ll find one of the best-rated tavernas in the area just a couple of kilometres away. Nissaki village, with its bakery, boat-hire and beaches, is a 5-minute drive.

Mr Tomasz Fabisiak, May 2024

Beautiful hideaway - last part of the drive to villa is not for the faint hearted! Best concierge experience received from Anna - friendly, knowledgeable, professional!

Mr Ian Lacey, October 2023

First time in Corfu and Simpson Secrets delivered right what we were looking for. Small retreat up in the hills, just far enough for peace and tranquility. fantastic view from our terrace and only a short distance to Nisaki beach, beach bar and tavern, what a delight. Loved it,

Mr Jason Taylor, October 2023

Simpson Secret is a delightful property, named appropriately, as it's a hidden gem with remarkable views over the sea. A perfect retreat for a couple seeking a peaceful and relaxed holiday, yet within reasonable distance of several quality restaurants and beaches for those that want to sample the sea.

Mr Trevor Lambert, September 2023

Simpson Secret is a delightful, well appointed villa with an outstanding view over the sea. Our concierge, Anna Dermata, was outstanding: a very positive, welcoming and cheerful lady whose support, particularly over the need to exchange our hire car, was exceptional.

Mr Patrick Walker, September 2023

First time with Simpson Travel, and we were very impressed with the whole process, which was seamless and well organised. Our accommodation was brilliant and the welcome pack was outstanding. Our representative, Anna was exceptional and kept in contact with us throughout the holiday, making sure we had everything we needed and also visited us to give us an extensive insight with regard to places to visit, trips to make and restaurants etc, we can't sing her praises more highly. We will definitely use Simpson Travel again without hesitation.

Mrs Gillian Wood, September 2023

Customer Feedback A fabulous modern Villa in a fairly rural setting. Initially seems very off the beaten track, but actually very accessible to walks, supermarkets, beaches, restaurants and of course an amazing view! The Villa was very comfortable and felt like a home from home. It is set in wildlife and whilst there, seems remote & very secluded.

Sarah-Jane Davey, July 2023

A fabulous relaxing holiday yet again delivered by Simpson Travel. Anna was an absolute delight – welcoming, generous and even brought the sun when the weather looked temperamental! Thank you for a wonderful time.

Debbie & Mark, June 2023

We had a fantastic holiday at the villa, a treat to stay in. Anna was so helpful sorting out a few issues and suggesting tavernas for our Ruby wedding and birthday.

Cath & John, June 2023

We’ve had a lovely relaxing week. Anna has been so helpful and available when needed. Villa is lovely – has all you need – pool fabulous and great views of course.

Jan & Clive, June 2023

We had a wonderful two weeks here. We have been blessed with sunshine and rising temperatures. Travelled round the island and the west coast is very different from the east coast but some nice beaches. Anna was superb and quickly sorted out some minor issues we had. We have been away with Simpson Travel a number of times and have never been disappointed.

Geoff & Diane, May 2023

We had a wonderful 2 weeks. With initial trepidation about the poor weather before we arrived, we have been blessed with sunshine and rising temperatures. Hired a boat for the day and went up to Kassiopi for coffee and lunch at Agni and anchored in base for swimming in between. Good value. Anna was superb and quickly sorted some minor issues we had, We have been away with Simpsons a number of times and have never been disappointed!

Geoff and Diane, May 2023

We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful villa in it's secluded location with fantastic views. A very well equipped villa with a lovely comfortable bed! A great variety of restaurants nearby. We had a fantastic week here.

Karen Rowland, September 2022

We had an amazing holiday. We stayed at Secret Simpson, Corfu, Purple Apricot and Loggos View on Paxos. All the Simpson staff went out of their way to make our stay as stress free as possible. They were pro active in arranging early arrivals at our accommodation. They were friendly, knowledgeable and thoughtful. Simpsons service is second to none. We will continue to use them and have already booked 2023 and even planning 2024. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

Sally Armitage, September 2022

We had the most wonderful time at Simpson Secret for our honeymoon. The property is beautiful, in excellent condition and so spacious. We loved visiting the beautiful restaurants and beaches in the local area. Simpson is the most fantastic company and we would recommend travelling with them to anyone! Special mention to Debbie who went the extra mile with us with our welcome pack because it was our honeymoon, and for being so helpful when there was a powercut in the area!

Lucy Acton, August 2022

The villa was stunning, even better than the website pictures, particularly the view. Debbie was fabulous. We had an extremely relaxing week and overall Simpson Travel were excellent.

Andrew Godber, August 2022

Thoughtfully designed, well equipped villa in a stunning location with a super pool and views and perfect peace. Everything including our lovely rep, Shay, didn’t disappoint…we really, really recommend this glorious villa. Thank you Simpson for another great holiday experience.

Gail Woodhouse – via TrustPilot, October 2021

The villa is absolutely gorgeous. It has stunning views, a secluded location and a private pool that is not overlooked. The house is comfortable and well-appointed. Our Simpson Concierge, Shay Logue, was extremely welcoming and kind, and went out of his way to be helpful in every way. We had a delightful holiday and recommend the villa highly.

Michael Carrier, August 2021

What can we say about Simpson Travel, nothing except praise for sure. The customer care we experienced has been second to none and we are already looking at where to go next! Covid has obviously had a massive impact on us all but not in comparison to the travel industry, despite this Simpson continued to put their customers first. We have just returned from a 2-week pre-wedding stay at Simpson Secret Corfu. The villa was beautiful and you couldn’t have wanted for more. All the mod cons but in the most secluded and private location. Once you get used to the Greek ‘road’ up you’re away! Thank you Jackie for being so wonderful and checking in with us throughout, the welcome wine and bits were also wonderful and a lovely touch. We wouldn’t hesitate to use and recommend Simpson again. Our two weeks really was worth the quarantine on the return home! Thank you, Simpson Travel.

Lucy Twyman – via TrustPilot, July 2021

What a wonderful place, perfect to relax and unwind. We have had a wonderful restful break. Our own hillside hideaway with just the birds for company.

Barry & Helen Ingham, October 2019

From our first telephone enquiry to our last day in Corfu everything was dealt with in professional and efficient manners. Simpson Travel went over and above any experience we have had with previous travel companies and we would not hesitate to use their services again. Thank you Simpson Travel for a wonderful holiday.

Mr & Mrs Hedley, June 2019

We came for a chill out! Boy did we get it! Well done Simpson team. Big thanks to housekeeping – excellent job. For foodies – try Glyfa. We will be back.

Julie & Don, June 2019

We have both had a wonderful week at this Secret. Amazing views over the sea to Corfu town and loads of thanks to Diane for all her help and tips for things to see and do in the area. Special highlight was renting a boat from Danny. Lovely to see the coastline which gives one a different perspective of the island. Has gone too quickly!

Margaret & John, June 2019

The villa was amazing, the road to it was certainly a road less travelled.

Mr Connach, May 2019

We have had a lovely stay here at this Simpson Secret hideout in Corfu. We have ‘enjoyed’ the ‘road up’ to this ultra-modern house! As with many other situations, it’s not just the place that’s important. It’s the people. Thank you Diane for looking after us so well. We have enjoyed Vitamins and the family there. The Corfiots have been so charming and kind that it’s inevitable we will return. Everyone at Simpson has been great – as helpful as always.

Tom & Barbara, May 2019

Despite fairly horrid weather we’ve enjoyed our stay at this Simpson Secret. We enjoyed Vitamins and the place next door for meals but were sorry we didn’t find Anthi (almost next to the church) until our last day. Thanks to Diane who looked after us very well and to Debbie who sorted us out with Netflix.

John & Phil, May 2019

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style.
