Location is always a key factor when choosing our properties. The majority of our clients prefer ‘a room with a view’. Monodendri is one of the most beautiful beaches on Paxos. A 400-metre sweep of white pebbles backed by pine and cypress trees with a turquoise sea lapping at its shores.
In spring and autumn, it's a haven for those who prefer a relaxing sojourn with a scattering of like-minded visitors either scattered along the beach or sampling the fresh fish at one of the two waterside tavernas. In the height of summer, late July and August, a different clientele arrive: families with teenage children, young couples and those who enjoy a more hedonistic lifestyle replace the Grecophiles who travel earlier in the season.
Monodendri Blue is a spacious and contemporary villa with stunning views over this glorious spot. Perfect for families with teenagers during school holidays while offering a more relaxed feel during the shoulder months. The beach is a mere five-minute stroll down a meandering lane that finishes at Monodendri (longer on the uphill journey back). In the afternoon on hot August days, music can be heard wafting up from the beach, but by late afternoon most sunworshippers have departed and you'll have time to enjoy a quiet cocktail in one of the two tavernas before they close before dinner.
Whilst maintaining its own independence and privacy, Mondendri Blue can be rented along with Thanelli and Villa Heleni to provide a spacious venue for an extended family gathering or a group of friends.

This was our first time booking with Simpson Travel and our first visit to a Greek island. Paxos turned out to be everything I thought it would be and more. Excellent service from all the Simpson team made the travelling far less stressful. The villa was lovely and we were very happy to relax by the pool most days looking out at the stunning views to the mainland.

Back again at Monodendri Blue – so beautiful here and the view is even better than before. Spent most of our time lazing by the pool.
Pippa & Alan – June 2019
First time visiting Paxos and we fell in love with both Monodendri Blue and Paxos itself. Our top highlight was an idyllic day spent at Vrika Bay in Anti Paxos, where we had the luxury of having the beach almost to ourselves and could enjoy its incredible beauty in peace away from the crowds of high season. The tavernas were closed so we had to take our own picnic, but it was all part of the fun – an unforgettable day. Another highlight was watching the sunset at Erimitis – one of the most spectacular sights on the island. Our Simpson Rep, Julie, was incredibly kind and helpful from day one, giving us good advice on how to get the best out of Paxos. Her help was invaluable. We love Monodendri Blue and much enjoyed the time spent ‘at home’ enjoying the spectacular views and pool. We can highly recommend Vasilis in Loggos, where we spent three wonderful evenings and when cold, I was offered the owner’s shawl to keep warm until the end of the evening. We also loved Aki’s restaurant in Lakka – an unparalleled position with the waves lapping just below us – with great food and wine as well. If it is your first visit we highly recommend you ask for a copy of ‘Poppy’s map’, a beautiful hand drawn map annotated with tips and advice put together by an islander now at university in the UK (her father is Captain Nikos of the sea taxi!). Navigating with more than one map seemed essential and Poppy’s map brought it all to life. Thank you, Simpson Travel for everything!
Andy & Penny Roberts – October 2018
First of all I would recommend speaking with your Simpson Travel rep – we had David and he was amazing. We have been to the island off and on for 20 years and he was able to update us on the seasonal changes. More than that he went out of his way to finding out how to wish our party member a happy birthday and anniversary wishes in Welsh. It was all an excellent touch. He also pointed out walks to enjoy. The villa continued to maintain Simpson Travel's high standard. A particularly nice feature is the pocket doors – which included security shutters and screen doors. They are great for keeping bugs out. The filtered water and ice cube feature was very helpful and saved us multiple purchases of bottled water – hugely convenient for afternoon beverage making.
The Evans Family – October 2017
As returning Simpson travellers for the third time, we are never disappointed. The level of service, accommodation and general organisation is second to none. From start to finish the Simpson Travel experience is a delight. The only thing to overcome is the depression we feel on returning home. However this is easily solved by immediately booking next year's trip with them once again. Couldn't recommend them highly enough.
Ms Haultain – September 2017
A very lovely week at Monodendri Blue. The weather has been fabulous which has meant we have not been very adventurous, being happy to wander down to the beach or sit by the pool. All of the Simpson Travel reps have been incredibly friendly and helpful – a huge thank you to Julie, Frances and Steph.
The Blair Family – July 2017
As always with Simpson Travel, they think of everything in order to make the journey there and back as smooth and painless as possible, the villa looks exactly like it did in the picture and the knowledge and reassurance of the local rep takes away any possible 'stresses' throughout the holiday.
Mrs Hudson – July 2017
Monodendri Blue is a brilliant choice for couples. The location is central for all three villages and the major beaches. The vast terrace and excellent infinity pool make one think twice about leaving the villa at all even though beach bars and charming beaches are available in profusion.
Mr Ervine – June 2017
We were extremely impressed with all aspects of Simpson Travel holidays. Everything ran like clockwork from start to finish and we had a wonderful stress-free week in Paxos. Thank you to all!
Mrs Dawes – June 2016
This is our third holiday with Simpson Travel and yet again everything was wonderful from start to finish. The villa and location superb and I'm sure we will use you again in the future.
Mrs Sharpe – August 2015
Our third visit to Paxos with Simpson Travel and each time staying in different accommodation. They offer many different types of accommodation and locations. I would defy anyone not to find one that met requirements. Staff on the island are unobtrusive, but there immediately should you need them.
Mrs Clark – June 2015
Simpson Travel cannot be bettered – we have recommended them to a number of people, and everyone we have met on the island that have used them seem to agree. Keep up the good work and we will be travelling with you again in 2015 and 2016.
Mrs Draper – May 2015
Thank you for making our holiday enjoyable from start to finish. We felt so warmly welcomed and cared for we wouldn't hesitate to travel with you again.
Mrs West – September 2014
Having visited Paxos 13 years ago, it was wonderful to discover that little has changed. Possibly a few more boats in the ports and a few more people around but it is still the wonderful haven of olive trees, crumbling walls, blue seas and warm hearted locals that it always was. Simpson Travel is the bench mark of holiday excellence. Although you can't take any credit for the creation of Paxos itself, you can take all the credit for making our holiday there so perfect. From arrival to departure, everything was faultless. We cannot recommend you highly enough and will be travelling with you next year. Thank you!
Mrs Haultain – August 2014
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.
