  • Stunning contemporary house
  • Beautiful sea views
  • Glorious top floor master suite
  • Walking distance to Kaminaki

Winding up a small footpath by the coast just a stone’s throw from the delightful bay of Kaminaki brings you to an extraordinary house perched on the hillside with stunning views across the bay. This house is a result of one Greek couple’s dedication over a period of six years to build their ‘dream’ home.

Bright, light and contemporary with comfortable open living spaces, clean lines and a state-of-the-art kitchen, The Light House manages to combine a degree of sophistication with a truly relaxing ambience. Built on three floors, the master suite on the top floor has its own private spacious terrace, whilst the infinity swimming pool with its magnificent views and cleverly designed porthole features will surely captivate.

This exceptional property is a haven for both families and couples who require privacy and yet are still just a short walk down the coastal path to picturesque Kaminaki, a quiet and understated fishing village with its two tavernas and white pebbled beach. Small motor boats and water sports are also available nearby whilst for the more energetic a tennis court awaits fifteen minutes stroll along the coastal path.

Customer feedback

Everything about our holiday exceeded expectations. Despite the arduous climb to the property, we felt the effort was worthwhile, for the style and position was unsurpassed and quite breathtaking. Debbie, our Simpson rep was extremely welcoming and efficient, suggesting many ways in which we could take advantage of this beautiful island, for instance, where to park when visiting Corfu Town and recommending the best restaurants and tavernas where we could sample the delicious and varied local cuisine. Our first Simpsons holiday but certainly not our last!
Mr Turner – October 2017

The Lighthouse is a stunning property with fantastic views, well worth the climb up the many steps! Excellently furnished, very clean and the kitchen was very well equipped. Thank you Simpson Travel we have had another super holiday!
Mrs Baines – October 2016

We haven't used a tour operator as such for years but Simpson Travel have reminded us of how useful it is to have someone there to help if the need arises. Excellent advice, both at home and at the location. Will definitely use again.
Mrs Eccles – July 2016

Simpson Travel is an excellent tour company. They are a very professional organization. From discussing our holiday needs with their knowledgeable representative to returning home after our time in Greece everything went very smoothly. If you haven't traveled with them before give them a try. We did and we were very satisfied indeed.
Mrs Wilson – June 2015

The views are amazing! The villa is stunning we have had the most relaxing week, beautiful sunshine by day and the odd early season storm by night.
Mrs Williams – May 2015

We've had an amazing time in Corfu and have been blown away with the villa. The views are just breathtaking and something you can never tire of. The weather has been great and my son loved the pool and having the beach on our doorstep. Everything has been first class!! As a family we have had a great time and made some amazing memories that we will always remember and cherish from this holiday. This is our best holiday to date. Thanks for everything!
Mr Hunt – May 2015

Mrs Duggleby – October 2013

A wonderful holiday and fantastic concierge service provided. Holidays don't get much easier than this.
Mrs Hill – July 2013

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.
