Callista, one of our top-of-the-range Simpson Exclusive villas, is simply one of the finest villas in Lefkada, with far reaching views over the Ionian Sea.

From the moment you arrive, the dazzling impact of these sweeping panoramas is undeniable – and from the generous outdoor spaces and many seating options with uninterrupted views, to the large swimming pool perfect for peaceful pre-breakfast lengths or a game of water volleyball, this villa embraces outdoor living to the full. And early risers will love gathering their thoughts over morning espressos on the spacious outdoor terrace as the sunrise dances across the water.

The interior of Callista is uniquely designed to maximise space whilst offering effortless style to enhance any holiday. It comfortably sleeps ten people within its five bedrooms, all of which come with large windows to surround you with those views even when you’re inside. The open-plan ground floor is where you will find the contemporary dining room, living room and kitchen – the perfect space for celebrating a family get together or just quality time with good friends.

Staying in this Exclusive villa, you can also enjoy the dedicated services of our complimentary Concierge. They’ll be in touch before you leave the UK to make sure you’ll have everything you need when you arrive and can arrange all sorts of extras, so if you’d like a chef to cook for you whilst you sit back and admire Nidri’s twinkling lights below or would simply like someone else to book that boat trip, just let your Concierge know.

And when you decide to venture beyond the private pool of this magnificent villa and sample the local cuisine, there are waterfront tavernas at Geni, a short drive away. Or simply, get lost in the narrow streets of Lefkada’s Old Town, full of vibrant cocktail bars and trendy restaurants to rival any cosmopolitan city. Discover the west coast of the island too, driving through mountainous roads that make way to charming villages like Agios Nikitis.

Lady Elizabeth Cruttenden, September 2023

A beautiful house facing an incomparable view.

The Morse family, September 2023

We were delighted to, yet gain, book a holiday with Simpson Travel. From the time of booking to the day we left, our stay was seamless. The villa was as described and the villa concierge was fabulous with recommendations for restaurants, activities and organising extras for us. We would highly recommend booking with Simpson.

Heather Bronks, July 2023

We had the most amazing time at Villa Callista. The views are not easily photographed and they are stunning. The whole villa is lovely, clean and beautifully furnished. Maria was on hand for any questions and helped us with restaurant recommendations/ reservations and booking taxis. She was so helpful resolving any minor issues. We spent 4 days on boats and enjoyed discovering coves and swimming in turquoise waters with lunches in various tavernas. We walked into Nidri on a few occasions which was about a 40 minute walk & some walked back up which took a bit longer but it was a nice walk after dinner when it was cooler. Callista is a villa we won't forget and was perfect for our group of 5 couples with 5 lovely bedrooms and 5 beautiful ensuites.

Alison Williams, June 2023

Wonderful destination with a local concierge who ensured my whole family had a dream holiday.

Mahboob Khan, May 2023

What an experience! It has been such a pleasure to enjoy this amazing villa and make incredible memories! All our needs were catered for, nothing has been too much trouble. When can we come back?! Planning it already!

Lucy, Edward, William, Miriam, Isobel & David, September 2022

Thank you so so so much. It was amazing here, we loved it so much and we all had such a great time. The view is one of the best I have ever seen!

Ella, Lexie, Kathie, Colin, Anna & friends, August 2022

Villa Callista is all that the brochure promises, cool, comfortable, well equipped. The pool is amazing, the views unforgettable. Our 2nd holiday with Simpson Travel, whose team give excellent service. Thank you for the generous hamper. We were slightly baffled by all the electric switches, perhaps an idiot's guide to the lighting would be useful. Many thanks again to the Simpson team.

M & M, June 2022

Sheer luxury, both villas , Mimosa (Meganisi) and Callista (Lefkada) had beautiful views and were furnished to the highest quality. The Simpson Travel team look after you all the way from pre-departure to getting you home. It's a special experience. Great holiday in Greece!

Charles Ault, May 2022

A wonderful Villa with excellent views, only minor comment found wall kitchen units not that easy to open, but a minor niggle, no complaints we all had a fantastic week, outside BBQ area very good and pool was excellent local Simpson rep very helpful, would most definitely recommend.

Graham Lloyd, May 2022

We booked Callista to celebrate my husbands 70th birthday with our family. The villa and pool were lovely and the location superb. The local rep was easy to contact and quickly resolved a couple of minor issues. A great holiday was had by all. The Villa and Simpsons surpassed our expectations.

Clare Lowery, May 2022

Wow! What a villa. Best one yet. Villa was luxurious and super clean with views to die for.

Jake Thomas, October 2019

A very BIG thank you to the Simpson team in Lefkada. Our family group included three generations and the spacious Callista was perfect for all of our needs. On entering the villa the youngest member of our group (8 years) exclaimed "I am so glad that I'm alive and that I have eyes to see this beautiful place". We enjoyed our days out exploring the island but in truth we couldn't wait to get back to the villa to enjoy the pool and the beautiful views. The gallery of photos on the website are amazing but the real beauty is actually being there!

deeday_11, August 2019

Wow! Amazing! Fabulous! Glorious! Awesome! We have had a ball! Nine of us spanning three generations and each and every one of us would love to return. The thought of leaving each day to explore the island was not an easy one but we forced ourselves to venture out. All in all we had an absolutely fabulous time. Can’t wait to return.

The Carbon family, August 2019

What a wonderful villa – fabulous in every way possible. The views are absolutely amazing. Plenty of space for families – great bedrooms, sunbeds and a gorgeous pool. We didn’t wander too far as we had everything we needed here but worth taking a boat trip. Thanks so much to Jo for looking after us and the great team of cleaners!

Callista & Mark, July 2019

Three generations of our family enjoyed a fabulous week at Callista. We all appreciated this wonderfully spacious, stylish villa, great pool and amazing views, a week was not long enough! Our rep, Jo, was on hand whenever we required her, dropping off crates of water and even cakes requested for our grandson’s birthday. The whole trip was faultless start to finish, brilliant!

Jan & Colin Willats, July 2019

Thank you to Jo, our local contact, at Villa Callista, she was excellent as was the cleaning services at the villa.

Callista Houghton, June 2019

The villa far exceeded our expectations. The villa, pool and views had the ‘wow’ factor. We would definitely go back.

Rosemary, June 2019

We have stayed in many Simpson Villas, but this one is the most wonderful in every respect. We have never spent so much time around the villa! Lefkada is a beautiful island and we will definitely be back.

Mrs Hume, June 2019

Our whole experience of the holiday was brilliant, my family and I couldn't fault anything. I will definitely type in Simpson Travel next time I am looking to have a break/holiday. Unforgettable memories had by all. Many thanks for making that happen.

Mrs Conolly, October 2018

Villa Callista is a magnificent property with tremendous views across Nidri bay. It really does have the ‘wow’ factor. We took advantage of the personal chef service and had a very enjoyable meal cooked by Hayley. Once again, all the staff at Simpson Travel have made us feel extremely well looked after.

Rob & Louise, September 2018

We had a wonderful stay at Callista. Incredible views – even better than the website. Perfect for us as a big family group. Easy to spend lazy days around the pool.

The Murty Family, September 2018

This was our second experience in a Simpson Travel Exclusive villa and it did not disappoint. Villa Callista is simply sensational. It is very well appointed with a great pool and lots of varied outside space for sunbathing, dining and relaxing. It has the most fabulous views and offers total privacy. This, coupled with superb service locally, meant that we had a truly wonderful experience. Highly recommended!

Steve Parker, September 2018

First impression as you walk through the gate – wow! – and it gets better from there! Lefkada is a beautiful island with lots to explore! We made good use of the villa although enjoyed a day visiting Vassiliki and Sivota. Many thanks to Hayley for a wonderful celebratory meal and to Suzanne and Paul for their help!

The Crosweller Family, August 2017

Our family rented a newly built villa from Simpson Travel and its location was stunning. We had numerous questions as there didn't seem enough photos/reviews to back up our choice. We need not have worried as the staff at Simpson Travel (both at home and in Lefkada) were superb and answered any query we put to them. We were 100% satisfied with the villa and would have happily prolonged our stay!

Mrs Kirkwood, August 2017

Villa Callista – described by some of our party as 'The Kardashian Villa' – a fabulous place overlooking Nidri. Live the high life and stay here – peaceful, modern bliss!

Mrs Lewis, June 2017

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.

  • 5/5

Charmingly traditional, Lefkada is an authentically Greek holiday delight fringed by award-winning beaches.
