This mountainous island boasts some of the Ionian's most dramatic views and it is the view which takes the breath away when you arrive at Neritos. This striking two-bedroomed house looks across sea to the entrance of Vathy Bay and Mount Neritos in the distance. Neritos House is bright and welcoming, its rooms are very light and create a summery mood. The peaceful position belies the fact that the attractive town of Vathy with its neo-classical houses and numerous waterfront cafés and restaurants, is just five minutes' drive away, as is a small beach.

Customer feedback

Thank you for a lovely 2 weeks. We have had a wonderful time and I'm sure we will be back. The view alone will live long in the memory. It was a perfect holiday.
Paul & Jasmine – August 2017

When we arrived here, we were truly exhausted and two weeks later we are learning refreshed and rejuvenated. Our stay here at Neritos house has been truly magical. We love the views, the pool, the privacy, the butterflies. The little touches, ( thank you for the marmalade and all the other goodies when we arrived). Thanks to Greta and Simpson for making it all possible.
The Dominic Family – August 2017

Although we booked very last minute (the day before flying), Simpson Travel managed to arrange everything required from flights, Taxi and Sea transfers to run exactly to time and efficiently. The standard of Villa was excellent and the vast majority of the Simpson staff were a joy to deal with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Simpson Travel to everyone!
Mr Luraschi – August 2017

Simpson... you have done it again and again and provided us with a holiday to remember, the house is equipped with everything you need and with the spectacular views and with everything you need and with the spectacular views by the poolside, simply perfect. You are surrounded by pure beauty and the sound of the crickets, birds and bees. As different as it may be to leave the stunning views you simply must explore this beautiful island. The pool and house were well looked after with our privacy respected, and its the little touches that made the holiday even more worthwhile.
Andrew & Stacey – July 2017

Recently home from our fifth Simpsons holiday, as always the attention to detail was amazing, the transfers (taxi & sea taxi) were seamless. The villa was spotless with nothing left wanting. And the local rep knowledgeable & just a delight. Now.... Where shall we pick for next year?
Mrs Gratton – July 2017

We loved this haven of peace and tranquillity. It has been the most restful holiday we have ever had. Everything we need is here with the most wonderful views. Thank you Greta for your efficiency and advice, and thank you Angeliki and the pool man for keeping everything so clean! Finally. thank you Simpson Travel for turning this into a wonderful week for us in Ithaca!
Mr Goulden – September 2015

Our first experience of Ithaca was sitting in one of the waterside tavernas watching a Greek wedding taking place. A magical starts to a magical week. Our second day was spent as a very lazy Sunday relaxing by the pool and enjoying the wonderful views and atmosphere. We have loved everything about Ithaca - the views, spectacular scenery, the food. the friendliness of the locals. The best day was exploring Ithaca from the sea on a boat - the whole eastern coast from top to bottom. Huge thanks to Greta for the efficiency and knowledge. Our experience from start to finish has been well organised and professional. We will definitely use Simpson Travel again.
Mrs Coode-Bate – September 2015

What a wonderful place to stay. The villa, the views, the perfect peace. The care and attention by Angeliki and the pool man. Many thanks also to Greta for all the help and advice. The walks on Ithaca have been some of the best walks we have ever done. Most of them have been way-marked although we missed some from time to time and blundered about on rocky hillsides and in dense forests, but the views have been truly spectacular. The view from the Archaeological site is the most impressive with the whole of Vathy Bay, the North of Ithaca and beyond. We hope to be back to discover more of this beautiful island.
Mr Boot – September 2015



We've had a fantastic two weeks in Ithaca. The villa is in a great location. Close to Vathy, but quiet and private. The views are awesome. The beaches: Gidaki has the clearest water and is very pretty. We recommend a boat trip. Filliatro is busy with great jazz. Poli is probably our favourite: lovely beach, great figs and the best calamari! Restaurants: Libretto is the best on the island with outstanding views; Miles (Kioni) and Rementzo are both very good with great food! Thank you Simpson Travel, Greta and Angeline for a lovely holiday!
Mr Honeyman – August 2015

It has been a great two weeks which have gone too fast. A perfect day for us to have a relaxed morning in the pool, have lunch at one of the fantastic tavernas and hit the beach. Do explore the whole island - it is so beautiful. We loved the restaurants, especially Ithaki Mare, Porto (Vathy),Rementzo (Frikes) and best of all Polyphemus in Stavros. The weather, the scenery, the wildlife, the beaches - all gave us the perfect relaxing break. We hired a boat for the day which was a great fun. Finally, Greta is a mine of information and incredibly helpful.
Mrs Harrison – August 2015

Wonderfully looked after as always. It's hard to imagine a better appointed villa, with such a wonderful view. We will be back! Thank you!
Mr Gateley – July 2015

We had another very enjoyable holiday via Simpson Travel. The organisation around making the holiday a relaxing and enjoyable event is always appreciated . Well done to all.
Mr Thornton – June 2015

Everything we had hoped for. A very friendly welcome from Greta the Simpson Travel representative and a very generous hamper of food waiting in the villa. Very private accommodation with a fabulous pool that was cleaned daily in the early hours of the morning, stunning views of a magical island.
Mr Clark – May 2015

Neritos was a lovely house to stay in - we found it peaceful, private and yet near enough to Vathy to enable us to walk to a restaurant every night. Greta was superb and gave great advice on what to see.
Mr and Mrs McLachlan – August 2014

As always we have enjoyed our visit to this beautiful island. Thank you Angeliki and family for your welcome.
Meg and Michael – August 2014

Our second stay and Neritos House. We've enjoyed the wonderful views, star gazing - four shooting stars in one night! Floating in the pool watching the birds swoop down for a drink.
Binns – August 2014

Neritos House is fantastic, especially the view and the pool. We have spent many happy hours relaxing on the terrace with our books and the children have loved the pool.
Jarvis Family – August 2014

Neritos House has great views and is quiet and peaceful whilst being close enough to Vathy to walk into town. The perfect place to kick back and relax. Greta, the Simpson Travel rep, is incredibly helpful.
Ms Gilmore – June 2014

Neritos House is ideally located, just a short ride from Vathy. Views from the Villa are exceptional. All the holiday arrangements were carried out very smoothly and our stay was, as always, most enjoyable
Mrs Murnane – September 2013

Our precious family holiday was perfect because of your attention to detail. Thank you to everyone at Simpson Travel.
Mr Flack – August 2013

Neritos House on Ithaca is a beautiful property situated in a stunning location. Once again Simpson Travel have come up trumps and ensured a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing holiday from which we have have returned with our batteries fully recharged.
Mrs Bolton – June 2013

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themelves, 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.

The fabled land of Homer’s Odyssey and a safe harbour through the ages for Romans, Venetians and Ottomans, Ithaca is historic to the core: a beach holiday destination that comes with an epic story to match its beautiful landscape. The sweeping panorama of Vathy’s bay and a shoreline of eucalyptus-shaded coves give way to undulating hills of pine, olive and cypress groves, whilst timeless rural life plays out in the island’s unspoilt interior, ensuring that Ithaca remains a place to truly relax.

To help you unwind in style, we offer a selection of handpicked luxury villas, giving your Ithaca holiday a welcome touch of comfort.
