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.

Customer feedback

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

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


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

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

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.
