Simpson Hotels

  • Small intimate Simpson Hotel
  • Stunning waterside location
  • 4 Adult Only suites
  • Set on private 4-acre peninsula
  • Breakfast and lunch included
  • 3 complimentary dinners

With its magnificent waterfront location on a private four-acre peninsula close to Vathy, Keromoussi combines all the charm, serenity and natural beauty of Meganissi with a contemporary design and a host of thoughtful, guest-focused luxuries. This unique, intimate hotel with just four suites represents the personal vision of its owners Jean Paul Barthe and his wife, Nathalie, for whom luxury means private space in a stunning location and the time to enjoy it in your own way, be that exploring hidden bays in a hired boat or discovering the island on foot or by car or just drowsing away the day in a hammock in the shade.

One of the aspects we love most about Keromoussi is its intimate scale: accommodating only eight guests, with up to five staff on hand to look after you, the hotel strikes just the right balance between privacy and pampering. The deluxe detached suite has its own swimming pool, whilst the remaining three suites share a larger, equally beautiful version which faces out to sea, just a couple miles from the private island of Skorpios, erstwhile retreat of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Each suite has its own terrace and mesmerising views, just 30 metres from the intense blue of the Ionian Sea.

Having spent several years on the Ile de la Réunion in the Indian Ocean, Jean Paul has mastered the art of relaxed hospitality. Keromoussi offers an innovative ‘complimentary menu’ daily till 6pm, with staff on hand to serve you treats such as salads, simple pastas, snacks, mezes, afternoon tea with cake, soft drinks and beer. Around 7pm, canapés are offered, giving you a chance to mingle with other guests, enjoy a game of boules or just take in the loveliness of a Mediterranean sky at dusk. A week's stay at Keromoussi includes three evening meals – a welcome dinner on arrival, a barbecue and a gastronomic feast in addition to daily fresh breakfasts served on one of several shaded terraces. On other nights, dinner can be enjoyed in one of Vathy's waterfront tavernas just 2km from Keromoussi.

Jean Paul’s vision and great attention to detail extends to the outdoor space as well, to the extent that he has handpicked the massive boulders for the landscaped grounds, managed to find space for two small beaches and created a network of meandering paths along Keromoussi’s 400-metre coastline revealing quiet spots where you can pause to contemplate the serene views.

Meganissi is the perfect island for hiring a boat to explore its hidden coves and beaches, and Jean Paul has built two small jetties for mooring, one each side of the peninsula depending on the wind direction, and if you take a boat out for the day, the hotel staff will arrange a picnic lunch to take with you. Kayaks and paddle boards are provided for guests down at the shoreline, and if you’re in need of a little help to unwind completely in this blissful location, you can even indulge in a massage in the specially-built waterfront cabin.

Keromoussi has been designed to provide everything you need immediately to hand, but it’s very easy to get out and explore Meganissi’s three pretty villages, gentle green hills and secluded pebble beaches. Just a short boat transfer away from Lefkada, a stay here combines all the laid-back appeal of a sleepy Greek island with the simple luxuries that transform a holiday into an unforgettable experience.

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.

Local life potters along as it’s done for centuries and there are no bustling resorts on Meganissi, just three flower-filled villages – and yet you’ll still see luxury yachts moored in the harbours. Warmly welcoming, this island is also beautifully unspoilt; its coastline dotted with gleaming white beaches, some accessible only by boat or kayak. Inland, the rolling hills make for wonderful walking country, with shady pine forests and spectacular blue seas beyond.

To complete the picture, we offer a selection of handpicked luxury villas in Meganissi to help you make the most of this exclusive island.
