One of the joys of Paxos is following the many winding lanes leading through dappled terraces and peaceful olive groves to wonderful vantage points looking out to sea. At the end of one such lane you’ll find Kallista House, an elegant dry-stone villa with a sparkling pool and views of the deep blue Ionian Sea beyond.

Kallista's glorious sea views are mainly thanks to its slightly elevated position, surrounded by cypress, fruit and olive trees. The villa changed hands recently and the new owners have set out to make the outdoor space as comfortably appealing as the stylish interiors, adding a new summer kitchen for al fresco cooking and wooden decking to extend your relaxing space around the pool, making this one of the finest places on Paxos to enjoy a spectacular Ionian sunset.

Customer feedback

Thank you, Kallista House! A welcome, comfortable and relaxing week in charming Kallista House. We very much enjoyed the spacious pool area and lots of shade under the parasols – cool outdoor kitchen area to read and superb views from the balcony terrace, especially at sunset! Cool bedrooms with crisp linen – perfect. We loved our Captain Nikos hire boat trip from Loggos around the island, particularly swimming around the caves and were blessed with a late holiday water taxi trip to Anti Paxos where we spent a surprisingly uncrowded day on a sandy beach and a pleasant beach bar lunch. We love you, Paxos – we hope to revisit.
The Watson family – September 2018

Our fourth visit to Paxos – our first to Kallista House. After the long journey from London, the Simpson Travel ladies at both Corfu and Paxos smoothed the last lap. This is a lovely villa, perfectly placed for all parts of the island.
Ian & Melanie – September 2018

 

Our second visit to Paxos and this villa was an extremely pleasant surprise, apart from the spectacular view, the pool, the terrace and the garden it is very well equipped! We had forgotten about Simpson Travel’s welcome gift in the fridge and this was so welcome after a long journey from London. Julie was efficient and very helpful with reliable and useful suggestions. Our highlights were probably the visit to Panagia on 15 August for the celebration in the monastery of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, eating at Erimitis Sunset Bar while watching the sun set spectacularly – maybe the best Greek food we’ve eaten on our many trips and pottering around on the beaches. Our favourite beaches were Levrechio and Mamaris. The food at the restaurant on Levrechio beach was also good. Oh! And the beds and the clean linen! What luxury!
Jamie, Rosella & Ivar – August 2018

We had the most blissful two weeks here! Such a gorgeous villa in a perfect location – we loved every minute of our holiday. Especially wonderful having such comfortable beds and beautiful linens, great bathrooms and the villa and the pool cleaned regularly – like staying in a stunning boutique hotel all to ourselves! Great to be able to explore Paxos – the fantastic beaches, pretty fishing villages and loved the pool and amazing views from the villa, especially sitting on the terrace and watching the sunset. One of our best holidays ever and we hope to return again soon. Our first holiday with Simpson Travel and we were very impressed! The reps in Paxos and on our arrival in Corfu couldn’t have been more charming and helpful. Thank you so much.

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.

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.

Complete the picture with a stay in one of our handpicked luxury villas, apartments or our unique Adult Only Simpson Hotels and make the most of this peaceful island.
