Surrounded on three sides by a small forest of pine and cypress trees and standing in its own grounds of nearly four acres, the villa offers complete privacy and yet is only a five-minute drive to Gaios and a selection of pretty beaches.

- Corfu airport to Corfu port is either by taxi, minibus or bus 10min
- Waiting time at Corfu port is usually between 1hr to 2hrs at the port café where there is an area to store luggage – due to Covid-19 there is a reduced timetable and fewer passengers are allowed to travel at one time. The first scheduled boat to leave Corfu for Paxos is at 15:15 and depending on your flight arrival time, this could mean a longer wait than usual at the port.

Lovely Leona was our Paxos rep. and I can't praise her enough, she was local all week and at the end of the mobile 24/7 – she is a gem of an employee for Simpson!
Simpson Traveller – September 2019
We had a lovely return visit to Paxos and Avlaki Bay House. Just as peacefully restful as last year – possibly with even more wild flowers in bloom. We recommend trying all the tavernas and restaurants as the variety is great. If you love walking, get The Bleasdale Walking Map of Paxos. We explored all of Paxos and most of Anti Paxos on foot thanks to his highly detailed map and guide.
Carol Waterman & Gavin Finney – May 2019
Another superb holiday through Simpson Travel for us again this year. We were looked after from start to finish.
D Bence – May 2018
Many thanks to the wonderful Simpson Travel reps Steph, Frances and David who gave us loads of tips on places to go and things to do and even lent us binoculars. Marvellous!
The Saer Family – August 2017
Second time in Paxos with Simpson Travel and another great week. The villa was wonderful. We loved the gorgeous views of the sea and the pool was great. So quiet and peaceful. Will definitely be coming back to Paxos, it's a truly special place! Thank you to Simpson Travel for an amazing week at this villa.
Mrs Chant – May 2017
The car hire at Paxos was the best in the world, just a name on the windscreen! Bliss! Made a real difference after a long journey. Food on Paxos so much better than Corfu. Loved the island and the location of Avlaki Bay house was amazing.
Mrs Lane – August 2016
Excellent service from all as ever, the boat strike was handled such that our journey to Paxos was a pleasure. It is so relaxing travelling with Simpson Travel because you know that everything will be taken care of in the most professional manner. Being welcomed back as old friends by the Paxos team on our arrival was really delightful. The little gift left for us prior to departure was a lovely touch. We much prefer the Heathrow Sunday flights. After years of travelling with you, it is refreshing to be able to say that your high standards have remained consistent. Simpson Travel has always got the big things right but it is their attention to the small details that sets them apart from other companies. We look forward to travelling back to Paxos with you in September.
Mrs Morgan – May 2016

It makes the whole travel aspect of any holiday much more enjoyable. On arrival at your destination you know that you will be met by friendly, organised and locally knowledgeable representatives who will cater for everything, and a location for your holiday that is truly outstanding. Our travel operator of choice – personal and professional – unbeatable.
Mr Cudworth – September 2015
A splendid week in the most delightful spot in Paxos. Thank you. We particularly loved watching the eagles and dolphins from the balcony. Snorkelling is fantastic here and we loved every taverna we visited. A wonderful holiday. Avlaki Bay on Paxos, lovely house, beautiful island. The attention to detail by Simpson Travel meant that this was one of the most relaxing holidays we have ever had. Thank you.
Mrs Bell – July 2013
Villa was lovely.

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.
* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
There are few better ways of relaxing than on a luxury holiday in Paxos, where days fill up beautifully with sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling and dining in style, the sea just metres from your table. Amble through ancient olive groves and you’ll catch glimpses of startlingly turquoise bays, the dramatic west-coast cliffs or the Epiros Mountains. In spring, there’s also a haze of purple honesty, wild irises and lilies and a sky that’s alive with birdlife, from hawks to skylarks.
