Good to know... On 29 September 2024 Giorgos Georgakis, the owner of Katouna Suites, is getting married and naturally he is hosting his big day at the hotel. Simpson guests will be invited to join the nuptials with the party finishing promptly at 12.30am and until that time, those who do not wish to participate should be aware that there may be some noise disruption in the rooms. But for the romantic at heart, this is a wonderful opportunity to experience the joy of a Greek wedding and wish Giorgos and his bride the happily ever after they deserve.

 

Three things really set Lefkada apart. The unbelievable blue of its waters, the majestic beauty of its forested mountains and the authenticity and charm of its towns and villages. And we couldn’t be more delighted to have found a spot that celebrates all three. Our first Simpson Hotel on Lefkada is an ultra-stylish, adult-only retreat, standing proudly in the hills above the east coast, with spectacular views across the sea to the Greek mainland and situated just a 10-minute stroll from one of the prettiest little villages on the island.

The ten contemporary Katouna Suites have been designed with real flair and imagination. Cut cleverly into this dramatic landscape, all our generous and sophisticated suites have a terrace or balcony overlooking the dazzling waters, and are beautifully appointed, with sumptuous beds and luxury fittings. And if you're looking for something above and beyond, the two magnificent penthouse suites offer unbeatable panoramic views and are extremely spacious, both inside and out.

The airy reception leads to a cool seating area and library where you can borrow that perfect holiday read, and our Simpson Concierge is on hand to help you book boat trips, make dinner reservations or point you towards one of the island's many idyllic beaches. And if you're in need of a little pampering, the hotel also has a treatment room with massage available on request.

Outside, clever landscaping creates different levels in the gardens and there are steps down to the simply glorious 23-metre infinity pool and surrounding terrace. Lying here and admiring the view from one of the elegant cabanas is simply heavenly. The poolside bar has an easy, laid-back vibe, serving drinks and snacks throughout the day and into the evening.

Katouna itself is a very special village. Just a 10-minute stroll from the hotel, it has a delightful church, small central square and two family-run tavernas serving local specialities. It is easy to fall in love with this tranquil spot, immersing yourself in the slow pace of life that the locals enjoy year-round but if you are looking for something more, Katouna Suites are superbly situated. Lefkada town is just a 15-minute drive away and is a vibrant and enticing place for shopping and dining, with an excellent choice of restaurants; some by the water, others tucked away amongst the lovely cobbled streets in the centre of town.

The nearby beach in Lygia, just a 10-minute drive away, is quiet and low-key whilst a little further south in Nikiana, the coastline is more developed and offers a more luxurious choice of beachside bars and restaurants. Pretty Agios Nikitas and the famous beaches of the west coast are also very accessible and a drive up through the mountains to enjoy a Lefkada sunset is an unmissable experience.

Mrs Angela Bennett, June 2024

We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday in this lovely venue. Hazel and Laiti enhanced our enjoyment by their commitment to excellence. Hazel gave the most interesting welcome chat that we had ever heard, I would take a pen to make notes! Laiti is simply brilliant, nothing is too much trouble for him and he epitomises service with a smile. The rooms were sparkling clean and the breakfast was delicious and plentiful. A lovely place to stay with the most fabulous view.

Mrs Sharon Harcourt, June 2024

From booking to return the quality of the communication from your staff was excellent. In particular we cannot speak too highly of Hazel our local concierge who went above and beyond to make the holiday enjoyable for us. Nothing seemed too much trouble. Also Laity in the bar was a gem, and Natalie kept our room spotless. A great team.

Mr Adrian Cornwell, May 2024

This is our second Simpson holiday, we can thoroughly recommend this company. All aspects of our holiday were 1st class.

Mr Timothy Latham, May 2024

We enjoyed the wonderful views and the local availability of tavernas.

Mrs Sally Thomas, May 2024

The amazing panoramic view at Katouna Suites is so beautiful. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable and the staff are delightful.

Mrs Moira McNally, May 2024

Location and views fantastic! Enjoyable facilities and great staff. The logistics are helped by having a car and this is organised extremely smoothly. Everything reached the expected Simpson high quality.

Mrs Celia Hillier, May 2024

Hazel the concierge, was both friendly and informative, and most welcoming, had excellent knowledge of the island, and was enthusiastic for all to share her love of the island. Leto the staff member who ran the bar and breakfasts was a true asset to the hotel, and helped make our holiday experience .

Mr Charles Holden, May 2024

We have recently returned from a week's stay at the Katouna Suites and could not fault the experience. The whole Simpson journey from start to finish was absolutely wonderful. Maria, the Katouna Suites rep, was amazing and answered all our questions and booked restaurants for us. Layte and George in the bar/restaurant were very attentive. We will definitely return.

Mr Matthew Smith, October 2023

Great holiday at Katouna Suites. So relaxing. Maria is a great addition to the Simpson team. Layti, who worked at the bar, was fabulous.

Mr Andrew Beattie, October 2023

Our holiday at Katouna Suites was stunningly beautiful. All the staff were so friendly and helpful with everything we could possibly need. A very relaxing and perfect place to stay for peace and unspoilt Greece. Thank you Maria and team and Simpson Travel too for finding these beautiful places for us all to enjoy.

Mrs Christine Potter, October 2023

Our first holiday with Simpson Travel and we weren’t disappointed. It felt as if we were wrapped in a comfy blanket of luxury from start to finish. The Katouna Suites in Lefkada were amazing and the staff attentive and efficient. From the comfortable bed to the gorgeous breakfast we both enjoyed a fantastic holiday.

Mr Peter Flanagan , September 2023

We enjoyed a very relaxing week at Katouna Suites. The accommodation, location and stunning views were exactly as described and matched all of the photographs. The staff were extremely professional, knowledgeable about the area, friendly and very helpful. Car parking on site was easy and safe and the road leading to Katouna was one of the better ones! We had one of the rooms with the larger balcony (Lazarata) which had some shade as well as sun all day which suited our needs. The two tavernas and coffee shop in the village offer completely different menus and the atmosphere in the square was perfect for a relaxed evening without having to drive anywhere. We would highly recommend Katouna Suites for a quiet holiday with everything you need on the doorstep. Maria even organised a sea taxi to take us to Meganissi for the day so we could revisit one of our favourite tavernas from our last 3 holidays. Katouna is another perfect Simpson experience.

Mrs Anne Tucker, September 2023

Once again and with the assistance of David Conitzer from Simpsons Travel, we arrived at Katouna Suites located on an elevated site having stunning views over the surrounding headland and coastline. The hotel is lovely with a large sun terrace pool and loads of sun beds. The staff were outstanding, and in particular Maria, who's knowledge and help was beyond belief. She always had a smile and was available 24 hours a day. Looking for a relaxing holiday with stunning views and accommodation, we would definitely recommend Katouna Suites, Lefkada, Greece.

Mr George Chris Shields, September 2023

We very much enjoyed our stay at Katouna Suites, it is in a fantastic location with beautiful views. Thank you to Maria and colleagues, who were particularly friendly and helpful.

Mr William Lancashire, September 2023

Fantastic boutique hotel with stunning views.

Dr Gordon McAnsh, September 2023

This was our first time with Simpson Travel, it will not be our last, our only disappointment is not finding this company sooner! Nothing was too much and the service was fantastic. We had a brilliant time at Katouna Suites, the hotel, the location and staff were just perfect. Thank you.

Mrs Sam Dougherty, September 2023

Lefkada Katouna Suites, up a steep windy road and very quiet and private. Maria was always on hand to book any restaurants for you and arrange for boat hire. Maria was very charming and very good at her job, nothing too much trouble. Laki at breakfast was always willing to make an alternative if you didn’t want something, with food being served rather than a buffet. The staff were all excellent. We had a very pleasant week exploring the island.

Mrs Jane Brignall, September 2023

Simpson Travel have been present and available from booking to departure home which has been reassuring throughout our holiday. Inclusion of the hire car and step by step directions were extremely helpful and made travelling easier. Facilities at the Katouna Suites were excellent and staff so friendly that there was little need to chill anywhere else. The concierge arranged a superb day catamaran trip (lunch and drinks included) for a group of guests at short notice and the bar staff went over and above expectations to meet guest needs. We would happily go back again and recommend Simpsons to anyone considering their services.

Joseph Stuart, July 2023

We had a wonderful stay at the Katouna Suites. Everything about it was excellent- the rooms, pool area, local concierge, hotel staff and the therapist! Without exception, everyone provided a service which exceeded our expectations and this stay was again a fabulous Simpson experience! Location also good, with easy access to excellent restaurants.

Janice Howell, July 2023

Second booking with Simpson Travel and they did not disappoint. We were looked after from booking of the holiday until we returned home, by the team at Simpson who really do go above and beyond to ensure you have a wonderful holiday.

Samantha Elliott, July 2023

Our trip to Katouna Suites was fantastic. The location, quality of the property and pool and the staff could not be faulted. The view was absolutely breathtaking and our room was one of the best I have ever stayed in. Maria and her team were first rate, and always on hand to help with restaurant/ taxi bookings and recommendations on places to visit.

Patricia Roberts, July 2023

We have enjoyed a fantastic fortnight – the location and views are exceptional and the staff are outstanding. We could not have expected such first-class service. The whole experience has been memorable thanks to everyone who made it possible.

Lorraine Harrison, June 2023

We had an excellent and very special holiday at Katouna suites. The staff are exceptional. My wife was delighted with the effort the cook made to accommodate her gluten intolerance. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of Katouna suites and it will be difficult for us to match such a great experience.

George Harrison, June 2023

Simpson organised an excellent holiday for us - it was all very straightforward and the level of contact and follow up was extremely good. Staying in a Simpson Hotel was a great choice as they had worked on making sure all the details were of the highest standard.

Judith Stewart Usill, June 2023

Fantastic venue, in a beautiful setting. Staff attention to detail is second to none. Rooms are extremely well designed and equipped. A real quality location. Local restaurant recommendations are amazing - we had a necessary relaxing break.

Alan Taylor, June 2023

The holiday exceeded my expectations in most areas, and I have booked another holiday with Simpson Travel for Sept/Oct this year.

Nigel Craker, June 2023

Katouna Suites Hotel on Lefkada has the most stunning position, with wonderful views - a gorgeous and luxurious place to unwind and every detail taken care of by thoughtful staff. We would highly recommend this boutique hotel.

Katherine Lee, June 2023

Another great holiday with Simpson Travel. Katouna has been a stunning place to spend a week and the fabulous staff have made it extra special – everyone has been very friendly and super-efficient. Thank you to all for your hard work.

Kay & Antony, June 2023

The Katouna Suites tick all the boxes for a relaxing break with a fantastic view. All the staff , especially Maria and Latie, went above and beyond to make sure everyone was well looked after.

Peter Turner, June 2023

The views and the amazing sunrise every morning – this is better than the website and that is rare. The staff could not have been any better.

Neil & Jackie, June 2023

Thoroughly enjoyed our break at the Katouna Suites - superb views, peaceful location, lovely rooms, fab pool and great staff - Maria and Laty in particular. Some excellent restaurants to be enjoyed on Lefkada and a lovely day out on a chartered yacht to enjoy the sea :-).

Mark Sims, June 2023

Breathtaking views from a beautiful, intimate hotel, with outstanding service.

Grainne Nelson, June 2023

From booking to arriving home, Simpsons provide excellent service. We were greeted at Katouna Suites with the most stunning view and a beautiful, peaceful hotel. The rooms are spacious and tastefully furnished with everything we could have needed. The whole hotel is positioned around it's stunning location and we never tired of soaking up the view. Fabulous pool and delicious breakfasts which varied daily. Within easy walking distance there is a traditional taverna ,contemporary restaurant and bar/cafe but the lovely Maria will help with recommendations farther afield or booking taxis. All the staff at Katouna suites were amazingly helpful and friendly. We would highly recommend Lefkada and the Katouna suites.

Patricia O'Dwyer, June 2023

What a view! Absolutely stunning. Just the most beautiful hotel and we’ve been so well looked after.

Kate & Grahame, June 2023

A brilliant service that performs well above the holiday price - we are very grateful to Katouna Suites for such a great stay and such a relaxed and considered approach to supporting our holiday. Maria at Katouna was outstanding as a concierge/host/manager that went above and beyond to ensure that that we had everything we needed. We would highly recommend Simpson travel, and very much value that it enables us to afford such a quality service at a reasonable price.

Alexander Cook, May 2023

This was our first time booking with Simpsons and we were very impressed and will definitely be booking again. Everything about our holiday was perfect .The Katounia Suites is an excellent choice of hotel. It was luxurious and tranquil and our room was spotless. The food was homemade and delicious, with a different breakfast every day. The wonderful Simpson’s Rep ,Maria was brilliant . Knowledgeable, friendly and always available for advice. This was also the case with all staff at the hotel. The pool area is superb. Spotless and with a view that we’ll never forget . Every aspect of this holiday was seamless and can not recommend Simpson highly enough. Thank you so much.

Pauline Martin, May 2023

Staff and accommodation excellent – helpful and cheerful throughout – splendid people. Breakfasts lovely and so much better than having to choose at a buffet. Simpson Travel are very efficient as always.

Rob & Lyn, May 2023

An absolutely fabulous week. The hotel is perfect, with beautiful rooms and stunning views. The breakfasts were filling and delicious, served in a lovely setting around the pool. A special mention to both Maria for her friendliness and advice and Laki for his warmth and service. We loved everything about Lefkada and most of all Sivota. The boat trip to Meganissi is a perfect day out. Katouna is definitely luxurious and a wonderful place to come and relax and get away from the pressures of everyday life.

Richard & Pauline, May 2023

Would definitely use Simpson Travel again. Very helpful staff before and during holiday. Seamless organisation even guiding us around possible road closures from airport to hotel.

Claire Patterson, May 2023

We had a very enjoyable 11-night stay at the Katouna Suites in late May 2023. The food and accommodation were very good; the rooms were spacious with lovely views and the breakfasts were consistently good. The staff were very friendly and eager to please: a special mention here for Laitie who served our breakfasts and worked at the poolside bar, and an extra special mention for our concierge Maria who was excellent in every respect. The Katouna suites are within easy walking distance of the charming village of Katouna which has two good restaurants, and not far from Lygia, a village on the coast which has more restaurant choices. Overall a very relaxing and happy time.

David Millen, May 2023

We had a really memorable holiday in Lefkada. A beautiful island and wonderful hotel. The Simpson Travel rep, Maria, was brilliant. Thank you so much.

Nicholas Robbins, April 2023

An excellent travel company. Smoothly efficient. We were delighted at the complete service we received. You will not be disappointed if you book with Simpson Travel.

Lisa Hustwitt, October 2022

An amazing hillside location with stunning views and well kept surrounding gardens.

Clair Leedham, September 2022

A wonderful location; very peaceful and relaxing. We had a wonderful time. An excellent coffee house and Taverna are a short walk to the local village. More choice of Treatment times at the spa would be welcome. Vasiliki, who served the breakfasts during our stay, was outstanding.

Robert Baker, September 2022

A wonderful place to visit with a great team who made us so welcome.

Jonathan Burchfield, September 2022

Katouna Suites is an amazing property, perfection with a breathtaking view. This is expected from a Simpson holiday and you never disappoint. The icing on the cake were the people. Ioannis the Simpson rep and Maria the hotel manager are excellent. We were warmly welcomed and they provided a first class service, professional and friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them and the other hotel team. Absolutely fantastic, thank you.

Leslie Perry, September 2022

A little slice of paradise where one is spoiled and indulged in every way, this holiday was above and beyond what we expected. You would never tire of the beautiful panoramic view and the glorious sunsets every morning and the pin drop silence and calm makes it so easy to chill down and relax. Breathtaking vistas await on every corner of the island on the coast and in the mountains … the sea really is that blue! We both left a little piece of our hearts in Lefkada.

B Haines, September 2022

Katouna Suites has got everything right. The suites were amazing, the staff were excellent in everyway. The breakfast was very very good, excellent quality of food and presentation. Even the music played during the day was just right.

Pamela Ravenscroft, July 2022

Stunning hotel with friendly knowledgeable staff perfect location for a relaxing week, two great authentic restaurants within a 10 minutes stroll.

Kerry Kavanagh, July 2022

We had an amazing stay at Katouna suites. Everything was perfect. Ioannis was fantastic and helped us book some great restaurants. All of the bar staff were so helpful and friendly and the breakfast was delicious.

Amy Duxbury, July 2022

Katouna Suites are extremely comfortable with good beds and a large balcony area and room space. The views are spectacular. The staff were particularly friendly; the manager Iannis and the two girls at the pool bar Maria and Ailin especially. It makes a real difference when the staff are always smiling and nothing was too much trouble. The pool was warm and clean and spacious. We only ever had breakfast but the food was delicious, well prepared and with good variety every day. We will definitely consider booking again (or at another Simpson Travel venue).

Georgina Holloway, June 2022

Amazing - took a chance on Simpson Travel as a last minute decision for a holiday and not having heard of, or used them before - couldn’t have been more impressed by the whole process from start to finish - if anything the holiday exceeded our expectations and will definitely use again.

Jacqueline Flori Atkins, June 2022

Katouna suites is one of the loveliest places we've ever stayed. The views are incredible. The room was fabulous, nothing was too much trouble for the lovely friendly and welcoming staff. Our only negative is that there were 3 days with no bar service so more staff needed. Maria was bar staff, waitress, pool cleaner, receptionist and who knows what else. She was AMAZING!

Katrina Chapman, May 2022

A lovely hotel with first class staff. Maria was wonderful throughout our extended time at Katouna. Rania and Ioannis provided us with terrific support.

Jonathan Burchfield, May 2022

Fantastic experience at Katouna Suites, Lefkada last week in May 2022. Great venue choice by Simpsons, I shall be using them again to try out other destinations. Simpsons service from booking to availability of local reps was excellent. Lefkada was unknown to me but was a fabulous and quiet place while we were there. Recommended.

Kirit Patel, May 2022

Our experience of the Katouna Luxury Suites in Lefkada was excellent. The location is stunning, accommodation wonderful with very high standards of service from the hotel team including quality of the food for breakfast which was amazing, attentiveness & friendliness of all the team members who work so hard to make a very memorable holiday. We booked looking for rest and relaxation and cannot speak more highly of this venue.

Ruth Dickinson, May 2022

Lovely holiday would go back in the future excellent service from Simpson Travel.

Nigel Blackburn, May 2022

We have just returned from a holiday at Katouna Suites in Lefkada, a hotel enjoying the most stunning views. This is another excellent and beautifully appointed Simpson adult only hotel, ideal for exploring both the coast and the interior of this very pleasant island, and only a 40-minute drive from Preveza airport. The island boasts a variety of bays and beaches, as well as inland villages, and has lots of very fairly priced tavernas offering delicious Greek cuisine. The team at the hotel is headed up by the bubbly Maria, and nothing is too much trouble for them, or the very helpful concierges, Karen and John. The overall experience is excellent, with very easy access to both the local village of Katouna, with its traditional family taverna, and a 5-minute car ride down the hill to Lygia, with atmospheric waterside tavernas. Well worth a visit.

John & Jane Reynolds – via TrustPilot, September 2021

We had a wonderful few days in the Katouna Suites! So luxurious with amazing views! Karen and John were great and helped with suggestions of where to eat and where to visit combined with a wicked sense of humour! Maria and Panyotta were brilliant at serving breakfast but Maria excelled at canapés with our drinks! Absolutely delicious! Loved our stay in Lefkada and thought the town full of history and amazing restaurants! We will definitely be back to Katouna Suites!

Susie Hall – via TrustPilot, September 2021

Had a great two weeks at Katouna Suites. The location of the hotel was superb – never tired of that view! Really enjoyed getting to know the island. Took some excellent walks, snorkelled at some lovely beaches and ate some delicious food – what's not to like! Also made a day excursion to the wetland area on the mainland which was really interesting (albeit pretty rustic!) and saw lots of wildlife. Maria and Panyotta and the rest of the staff were great and always available for a chat and provide some advice. Panyotta is definitely the Greek Emma Raducanu and kept the wasps from our table at breakfast with her accomplished backhand with the electric tennis racquet! Many thanks to Karen and John who were very helpful and provided excellent advice and suggestions. All in all, an excellent time.

Simon Glenister – via TrustPilot, September 2021

We stayed at Katouna Suites in early September. The view from these quality suites is truly outstanding. You will never tire of watching the house martin’s taking an early morning dip in the pool while you enjoy breakfast. Our suite on the second floor was spacious with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The lovely Maria, along with the breakfast staff, made sure all our needs were catered for, including our gluten-free dietary restrictions. We were very grateful to Maria who acts as an on-site manager solving problems and booking restaurants and taxis with a cheerful can-do attitude. She is a real asset to Katouna Suites. The Simpson concierge team of Karen and John also added so much to our trip giving us plenty of top tips throughout our stay. We tried many of their recommendations. We also mentioned that we were nervous of driving the mountain roads so arranged for an island tour with the truly inspirational Hazel. Dedicated to sustainable tourism and giving back to the locals, Hazel took us to the forgotten mountain villages navigating the hairraising driving with ease and confidence. We provided a much-needed source of tourist income and learnt so much about Lefkada life from her. We are so grateful to John and Karen for arranging the day for us. It was a highlight of our stay. Katouna Suites is well situated for the very good local taverna within walking distance and other restaurants on the island. We really like Thymari in Lefkada town and Seven Islands for its waterside setting. There is huge potential to do more at Katouna itself. The bar area is a bonus and if a barbecue had been arranged we would have definitely been up for that. As it was we enjoyed the sunbeds during the afternoon and Maria’s impressive canapés with every drink order. I can’t imagine anyone being disappointed with a stay at Katouna and we really connected with this relatively little known island.

Krishna Anand – via TrustPilot, September 2021

I just wanted to say a big thank you to all the Simpson Travel team for enabling us to have such a lovely holiday. Everything was seamless, the support excellent and the hotel fabulous. The little touches – checking in with us bringing round snacks – went a long way. Thank you.

Naomi, September 2020

This new Simpson hotel has stunning views both from the suites and the pool area. The design is modern and the décor in our suite (Rahi) was open plan which we liked with a small kitchenette area in the middle. The bed was very comfortable and the walk-in shower and bathroom area were of a high quality of fixtures and fittings. Two tavernas within walking distance but car needed to access the beaches. The breakfasts were excellent quality as was the food available at the restaurant. All the staff were excellent. A lovely area and would thoroughly recommend Katouna Suites.

Karen, September 2019

Simpson gave us a wonderful holiday yet again. Katouna Suites were wonderfully designed and excellently situated. But most of all we would like to thank Lindsay Ross who couldn't have been more helpful, and all the very friendly staff. Simpson has to be the best!

Roger & Jacky, September 2019

Our return flight was affected by the Thomas Cook insolvency. Despite the CAA problems and substantial delay, the Simpson team were terrific and managed to get us home later the same day. Apart from that glitch, Katouna and the team were wonderful and we had a relaxing and enjoyable break. Lindsay, Maria and Stephanie stood out for providing fabulous and welcoming service.

Ralph N, September 2019

Katouna Suites and Lefkada are the perfect chill-out location. Lindsay and the team really looked after us. Waking up to the wonderful views every morning was the perfect start to every day.

Edward & Sarah Westall, September 2019

Our two week stay at Katouna Suites was our fourth holiday with Simpson Travel and was the best so far. We loved the relaxed vibe of Lefkada. There was plenty to do on the island if you wanted to or you could do nothing except relax by, and swim in, the beautiful pool. The views from the hotel across the water to mainland Greece were stunning as was the hotel itself. The hotel team were brilliant – all were friendly, efficient, professional and knowledgeable. Two lovely tavernas were a 10-minute walk away, both served great food and we spent several memorable meals there with some of our fellow Katouna guests.

Elspeth & Alistair, August 2019

A stunning location and wonderful staff who made us feel so welcome. Lindsay and her team are a credit to Simpson and should be commended for their warm and generous hospitality. The Spa treatments were also amazing!

Mr & Mrs Eckstein, August 2019

We have had a lovely relaxing week at Katouna. The room, the view and the breakfasts (and the shower!) have all been fab! Maria and Lindsay have been really friendly and helpful, and we have been lucky to share our week with two other lovely couples. It has been great to recharge batteries, chill by the pool, read books and enjoy time together. This has been our second Simpson holiday and we would recommend them to everyone!

Alistair & Lesley, August 2019

Lindsay and all the team at Katouna Suites were fantastic and the service was seamless. The location is very well chosen – whilst private and with amazing views, it's still an easy walk to the village for excellent traditional food and a great atmosphere. A very relaxing holiday!

Mr McGrath & Miss Hopley, August 2019

This was our first holiday with Simpson Travel, we have since come to realise that they have an excellent reputation and customers constantly book through Simpson year after year. Following our recent experience over a 2-week period, we can easily see why they have built up such a loyal following. Katouna Suites is a brand new hotel which ticked the very high standards and criteria we were looking for. The Simpson representative, Lindsay, looked after us very well, booking many things for us at short notice, nothing seemed too much trouble even if it was her day off. Also the owner and the staff at the hotel were extremely pleasant. I would say the Katouna Suites and the Simpson service together are flawless.

We had a glorious two week holiday at Katouna Suites .Our room was wonderful with a spectacular view and extremely comfortable bed. Lindsay and her team were very friendly, efficient and could not have done more for us. We were able to walk to the two local tavernas where we enjoyed typical Greek food and wine. All in all a very relaxing time.

Ian & Gill, August 2019

Having travelled with Simpson for many years, we always know that the standard of accommodation will be superb and yet again, our holiday at Katouna Suites exceeded our expectations. The location of the hotel is perfect with mesmerising views from the rooms and pool. Our suite was incredibly spacious and designed beautifully. Delicious breakfasts, served by the wonderful Maria, started our days off beautifully. It was superb to have the choice of being able to eat at the hotel in the evenings or wander up to the traditional village of Katouna where there are two excellent tavernas. The pool area is so relaxing that it was hard to tear ourselves away from it. Lindsay was exceptionally helpful and offered us brilliant advice about trips and she could not have done more to assist us during our two weeks. All the staff at the Katouna suites make this new hotel such a special place to stay.

The new Katouna Suites on Lefkada island set the bar even higher for Simpson holidays! Where can we find anything like this next year as we rarely go back? The views are remarkable and the design and luxury of this new property are simply awesome! We had the Lazerata Suite which has a huge balcony with sofas and sun loungers. The breakfasts were delicious and lunchtime and evening meals were very good. The midweek barbecue was excellent fun. Our fellow guests became good friends and we enjoyed the excellent support of Lindsay, Maria and the team. Katouna is a major new addition to the Simpson portfolio and considering how recently opened it is, it flows beautifully and will be a flagship hotel in the years ahead. We challenge the team to find us something as good for September 2020!

Jeremy & Rachel Taylor, August 2019

We have just returned from a fantastic week’s holiday at Katouna Suites. The hotel is in a beautiful location with outstanding views of the coast. The room exceeded our expectations. It was very spacious, with a large balcony and had everything we needed. Lindsay, the rep, was very helpful and knowledgeable without being intrusive. At breakfast Maria was always friendly, ready to advise and nothing was too much trouble. Stefania was always attentive and made sure we had everything we needed by the pool and bar. This is an excellent hotel in a perfect location with friendly, helpful staff who helped to make our holiday a very happy, memorable experience. We will certainly be returning to this wonderful hotel.

Ian & Joy, August 2019

Katouna Suites was stunning in all respects, spacious rooms and balconies, unforgettable views, welcoming and exemplary service from Lindsay and her team, lovely spa, great pool, and a good sociable mix of people in the week we were there, culminating in a marvellous barbecue on our last evening.

Gerry & Annette, August 2019

I would highly recommend Katouna hotel. The staff are very willing and helpful, always with a smile and friendly word. Nothing is too much trouble for them. A beautiful location with lovely views, a holiday of lifetime with the Simpson’s gentle touch as ever.

Lynn Hopwood, August 2019

Superb location with spectacular views. Caring, helpful and nothing too much trouble for hotel staff and rep, Lindsay. Travel to and from the resort well organised. Fellow guests interesting and fun. Overall a superb experience including our visits to Mousses to see family.

Chris, August 2019

We have had an amazing week at Katouna Suites. The location and rooms are simply stunning but it was the quality of the staff that made our stay exceptional. Every member of the team worked so hard to make our stay memorable, with everyone going the extra mile to ensure that we felt well cared for. We loved the fact that staff had strong infectious personalities, learning our names quickly and greeting us positively every time they saw us. There was a really positive upbeat atmosphere created by the entire team. Nothing was too much trouble, ALL staff anticipated our needs and without fuss put it in place. Food was very special and served with love and the knowledge of the local area and things to do superb. A truly remarkable team and place to stay. Thank you very much, we return feeling pampered, cared for and very relaxed. A truly 5-star experience.

Kate & Gareth, August 2019

Absolute pure bliss! We have enjoyed an amazing week and have been completely pampered. Such a beautiful island.

Lynn & Gary, July 2019

Val and I were captivated by the atmosphere, peace and sheer quality and above all we appreciated Lindsay being available and her professionalism. The breakfasts were so memorable and missed so much now. We look forward to coming back to Katouna.

David & Val, July 2019

Katouna Suites is in a beautiful location with exceptional views. All of the suites are of a very high standard with beautiful and comfortable beds and other furnishings all co-ordinated and modern. The staff are wonderful with a friendly ‘can do’ approach and simply made our holiday extra special. The boutique hotel is tranquil and a place to relax and enjoy all the beauty around you, sitting on the balcony, or in the fabulous pool – the views engulf you. Meeting up with other guests at breakfast and by the bar gave us a chance to share our experiences and enjoy a range of local breakfast options – all great quality and very tasty. Thank you to the lovely Simpson staff and the family owners who made our holiday a real gem of a break – simply stunning!

Ann & Neil Pratten, July 2019

We have thoroughly enjoyed our time at Katouna. Lindsay, Maria and the team are all wonderful hosts and we are leaving feeling refreshed, recharged and a stone heavier thanks to the amazing breakfasts! Let Stephanie make you a ‘surprise’ cocktail by the pool….lethal but lovely.

Stephen & Izzie, July 2019

Fantastic holiday experience from arrival at Katouna Suites until departure. The staff were amazing, especially Lindsay – extremely efficient, helpful and has an excellent knowledge of the area. Maria was an excellent start to our day serving breakfast with a huge smile. She was also very understanding of our dietary requirements which was hugely appreciated. All of the staff and owners at Katouna were welcoming and couldn't do enough for us.

Mr & Mrs Gibb, July 2019

Katouna Suites was simply breathtaking. The view was so amazing that we did have to pinch ourselves a few times. We rarely went out anywhere because the only place we wanted to be was back at Katouna. I felt so at home here, and this was partly due to the wonderful people who looked after us. I will miss them very much, especially Maria whose smile in the morning made me so happy. It is the perfect place to sit, relax and enjoy. Thank you Simpson for another great holiday....I am ready to book the next one.

Elizabeth Cowell, July 2019

The whole experience from start to finish was excellent, The hotel, the staff and the location was faultless. My partner and I got married whilst we were there, and the staff couldn't do enough for us. We found the hotel to have a special energy about it. Can't recommend it enough.

Marcia Blyton, July 2019

The views from Katouna Suites are amazing. The location enables a 10-minute walk into a small village with two excellent, authentic, tavernas and is convenient for Lefkada town and trips to the mainland. The hotel is brand new and therefore, immaculate. The family and staff are superb, providing attentive and friendly service. Overall, a terrific place.

Mr Davison, June 2019

A thoroughly enjoyable week that would be difficult to beat. If you are looking for beaches, Amoussa is great for snorkelling and seems to be where locals go. Kathisma Beach is great for turquoise waters and cafés. The Katouna staff have been most attentive and very friendly. All in all, the room, the view, the pool, the staff and everything Katouna Suites and Lefkada has to offer was fantastic.

Tim & Nicky Walden, June 2019

Amazing venue, fantastic hotel, awesome staff, just a perfect holiday. I can’t recommend this holiday enough. We thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely be returning soon. Thank you everyone from Simpson and Katouna.

Andreas & Christie, June 2019

Really enjoyed the Katouna Suites – we were made to feel very welcome, loved the view and the village and the breakfasts were delicious. Thank you.

Liz, June 2019

A wonderful location with probably the best views that we have experienced in any hotel that we have stayed at. The staff were always friendly and happy to offer any assistance if required on places to visit, etc. They would always try to accommodate any food preferences at breakfast, while even being happy to extend the availability of food into the evening when suggested. Rooms were very spacious and any problems/issues that you might have were sorted immediately. Overall a wonderful holiday on a fabulous island.

John & Anne Conner, June 2019

Thank you so much to Lindsay and all the staff at this beautiful hotel. We have been on many Simpson holidays and are never disappointed. We have loved driving around this stunning island and sampling Greek hospitality at its best. Many thanks for a wonderful week.

Dorothy & Steve Jones, June 2019

We are sure that you will have as wonderful a holiday as we have had in this beautiful spot. For a lovely day trip drive down the coast to Sivota in the south of the island. The Sivota Bakery is a lovely place to have a light lunch and for dinner in the evening, our favourite was Kanoiria restaurant in Lygia – ask Lindsay to reserve you a table on the water’s edge!

Rachel & Alan, June 2019

We had the most wonderful week. Everything surpassed our expectations. The suites are fabulous, the hospitality of the team is A+++, the food and the wine perfect, Greece is very, very warm.. we would go on and on. Simply, we will be back – it would be madness not to.

C & J Mansell, June 2019

A great week and we made some lovely new friends.

Rob & Sally Clarke, June 2019

Thoroughly enjoyed our 2-week stay. Loved the suite with its stunning views. Lindsay and her team looked after us incredibly well – all committed to giving guests the best possible experience. ‘Super Stephanie’ served delicious breakfasts and iced drinks round the pool. We loved the island and saw most of it. There have been many highlights.

Gail & Maynard, June 2019

Superb location and very comfortable accommodation, the owner, his staff and the Simpson rep were excellent, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

Mrs Perks, June 2019

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.
