The Saints

Corfu, Greece

  • A cluster of six 1 and 2 bedroom cottages
  • Each with private terrace
  • Stunning sea views
  • Shared swimming pool
  • Nissaki beach and tavernas 3min drive or 10min walk

The Saints is our affectionate term for this cluster of six, pastel-coloured cottages overlooking Nissaki beach in north east Corfu. Taking their name from the local Church of the Saints, each little house has been individually designed to create fresh, elegant spaces that open onto a private terrace and the most sublime sea views. This kind of outlook sometimes means a trade-off in terms of the convenience of the location, but not here, for the Saints are within walking distance of tavernas, a small shop, a bakery, the beach and beautiful Nissaki village itself. Back at base, service at the Saints includes the assistance of our knowledgeable local concierge.

With its three white pebble bays and crystalline water, Nissaki is one of the most sought-after holiday spots on this exceptionally lovely coastline. Sometimes referred to as old-school Corfu, here you’ll find a relaxed pace and an appreciation of life’s simple pleasures, whether that’s a romantic, waterfront meal at sunset or a gentle potter along the coast in your own little motor boat.

Each cottage at the Saints sleeps either two or four, and all have access to the free-form swimming pool and terrace.

Customer feedback

We have always found Simpson Travel's website excellent, but nothing can do justice to the views from our wonderful apartment, St Markos, The Saints, Corfu - the panoramic view over the Ionian Sea has to be seen to be believed. Such a fantastic holiday we have already booked to return - Joy and her team were exceptional - thank you again Simpson Travel!
Ms Robbins – October 2017

This was our fifth holiday with Simpsons Travel and the third time we have stayed at the Saints in Nisakki, Corfu. The whole fortnight was just so chilled out and wonderful, we cannot wait to go back next year. Thank you Simpsons for another lovely holiday.
Ms Onions – September 2017

The Saints, Nissaki - Great location, really comfortable accommodation and brilliant service from the local Simpson Travel team. Just a short journey in the car from Corfu airport, The Saints is located on a hillside overlooking the bay towards Corfu Town, a beautiful view you never get tired of. A great bakery, local shop and tavernas are all within a few minutes' walk, and the small, secluded beaches are easily accessible via a network of footpaths. Our cottage was perfect family accommodation. Both bedrooms were larger than average and it was a joy having a king size bed, and choice of pillows. The welcome pack was the best I've seen - delicious local yogurt and cheese, wine, coffee - in fact everything we needed to get us through the first evening and breakfast until the shop opened. The shared pool is stunning and having the Simpson Travel team on site meant we could pop in and ask the reps for their recommendations on tavernas/boat hire etc.
Mrs Bell – September 2017

Simpson are a professional, friendly and experienced company whom we have traveled with many times. They have not let us down and we have some truly lovely memories of family holidays organised by themselves. Their attention to detail certainly makes the difference for us.
Mr Weeks – August 2017

Another year being well looked after by Simpsons. The location of The Saints is fantastic, Unique and hard for other companies, or countries to compete. Thank you.
Mr Handley – July 2017

Excellent knowledgeable staff in Corfu made our holiday Thank you Joy and team.
Mr Robinson – July 2017

We were made to feel very welcome on our arrival, we loved our accommodation, which was very well equipped. There are fabulous views from the pool area, a wonderful taverna (Vitamins) a few minutes walk away, run by a lovely family. We had a lovely relaxing time, and would highly recommend. Simpson staff both in England and Corfu were very helpful-thank you.
Mrs Pegnall – September 2016

It was our first time booking with Simpson Travel and we were very impressed. The booking was swift and the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful from the onset. Our rep Joy at The Saints where we stayed was so helpful and friendly it really made a difference to our stay to know she was on hand if needed. We would definitely not hesitate to book with Simpson again. In fact it was nice talking to other guests who were repeat boomers of the company. We are looking forward to planning our next trip!
Mrs Kedgley September 2016

Great local beach/swimming area. It was very quiet with clear water, safe swimming and easily accessible on foot. This was a delightful bonus to a very good quality holiday. Thank you
Ms Almond August 2016

Fantastic service from start to finish. I can't now imagine using any other holiday company.
Mrs Bendall July 2016

 

The Saints, St Markos, has stunning views and Joy, the Manager, was extremely friendly and helpful. She recommended a local boat hire company and we had a wonderful day out exploring all the coves inaccessible by car.
Mr Jones July 2016

My wife and I stayed at The Terrace House (St Spyridon) at The Saints accommodation in Nisaki on Corfu. The property was extremely comfortable and kept as clean as a new pin by the excellent maid service. And the views from our terrace, our bedroom and also from the shared swimming pool are just to die for!
Mr Hooper July 2016

This is the fourth year we have used Simpson Travel and as usual Simpson Travel and their staff were brilliant, always helpful and nothing is too much bother. We had another super holiday, thank you.
Mrs Annan July 2016

An excellent holiday with Simpson Travel. The location at the Saints in Nissaki was perfect - beautiful scenery, lovely cottage which was very well equipped and lots of peace and quiet. Local shop, bakery and taverna's only a short walk away. The Rep was on hand if we needed her [which we did not]. We loved it so much we have already booked to return in September! Thoroughly recommended.
Ms Onions May 2016

We had a wonderful holiday at Nissaki and loved the charming St Nicholas, tucked into an enclave of Saints in the shadow of the local church and with breathtaking views of The Ionian. Saints Bev and Joy could not have been more helpful, even sacrificing their own umbrella during a heavy storm. Simpson Travel offer great style and great comfort in their carefully chosen holiday locations, I would definitely travel with them again.
Ms Heaney May 2016

Thank you. We had a wonderful holiday and didn't want to leave at the end of our two weeks. Simpson staff, from booking to the Saints staff (Bev and Joy) made everything so easy and stress free.
Mrs Wyatt May 2016

Our recent holiday with Simpson Travel ran like clockwork, from the initial enquiry phonecall to arriving back in the UK. We had a car upgrade awaiting us without asking, the welcome hamper was well thought out, the furniture and soft furnishings in the villa were tasteful and comfortable, and the representatives were on hand to assist us with every request we made. Thank you for a wonderful holiday. We will return :)
Mrs Perry August 2015

Super locations and lovely service, highly recommended
Mrs Holloway August 2015

We stayed at The Saints in Corfu and found the accommodation to be first class. Everything is so close at hand - even a bakery! Simpson travel were excellent from booking right through to in-resort reps.
Mr Gamble August 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.
