  • Delightfully positioned villa
  • Magnificent sea views
  • Fresh and contemporary
  • Vathy 10-minute drive

Nestled on the hillside within a few minutes’ drive of Vathy harbour, Villa Atokos is a two-bedroom property with its own pool and magnificent sea views. The décor is fresh and contemporary, with a nod to traditional Greek pension style via olive-green shutters framing French doors and picture windows, and antique-style, wrought-iron bedsteads.

You can lie in one of these beds and enjoy the views from the upper floor bedroom, or step out onto the wide, sun-warmed terrace for your morning coffee. Down on the ground floor there’s a shady pergola over the sofa and dining area, where you can enjoy the spectacular Ithacan sunrises and the magical starlit nights.

You might decide that with views like these from your very own terrace you are not inclined to dine out, but the bars and restaurants of the island capital Vathy are just 10 minutes away by car if you change your mind. In the high summer months, there is a local taverna available just a 5-minute drive away. And if you feel like the sea instead of your private pool, several of Ithaca’s iconic, white-pebble-turquoise-water beaches are within a 15-minute drive.

Villa Atokos, along with Villa Ino, is one of a pair of identical, detached properties, the only difference between the two being that the first floor bedroom terraces are arranged either left or right of the house to ensure privacy. The villas are situated quite closely together with a small trellis/hedge separating them. They would be ideal for two smaller families travelling together and still wanting to maintain a level of independence.

Customer Feedback

We enjoyed the peace, quiet and tranquillity of Ithaca. Our holiday was enhanced by the excellent help and advice of our rep, Judith.
Jane S – August 2019

What a wonderful holiday! From contacting Simpson Travel at the beginning to our beautiful villa in Ithaca...a truly memorable experience. Judith (our rep) was fabulous: helpful, informative and available when needed (which I didn’t think we would need but travel always throws up the unexpected)! Have already passed on your details to two friends.
Simpson Traveller – August 2019

Lovely holiday – looked after from start to finish. My husband lost his phone on the journey there, Judith (the rep) went out of her way to find it. Found in the taxi at Sami Port and was delivered on the ferry the next morning and brought it over to us – this was excellent service. Would definitely travel with Simpson again.
Jennifer & Adam Rigby – June 2019

Villa Atokos is an absolutely stunning location for a tranquil and relaxing holiday. The organisation is superb, and the welcome is always warm. We would never use another company now as we know everything will be taken care of for us.
Mrs Barry – September 2018

Once again Simpson Travel, you have found us a beautiful villa with great views over the mountains and Vathy, very accessible from the port. Many an evening was spent on the terrace, gin and tonic in hand. What a lovely escape we had at Villa Atokos, we feel fully relaxed and refreshed. The villa owner Stavros was super helpful, nothing was too much trouble and the villa was presented to a very high standard. Greta, the local Simpson Travel representative, was knowledgeable, communicative and friendly. Greta spent time outlining the beaches on the island and gave advice as to various activities that were available to us. What a fabulous island Ithaca is. Full of hidden beaches, fabulous restaurants and friendly people. Definitely somewhere to return to. Please find more villas on the island! Thank you.
Mrs Lincoln – August 2017


Simpson Travel made our holiday experience effortless. I was a little concerned travelling to Ithaca as it didn't have an airport, the Simpson Travel team made the whole transfer part of the holiday stress-free and everything was taken care of from the airport to the hire car on the island. We will definitely use Simpson Travel again, they created a Platinum Standard in holiday travel.
Mrs Alcock – August 2017

We have spent a relaxing and most enjoyable time on Ithaca. The drive to Kioni is well worth doing, the harbour is picturesque and we had a lovely lunch nearby. Thank you to Greta for all of the information and welcome.
Mr Robson – August 2016

We enjoyed a very relaxing holiday in Villa Atokos, thank you to Greta for your lovely welcome. The views we had at the villa take your breath away, we will return.
Mr Dance – August 2016

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.
