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. Since the majority of our clients prefer ‘a room with a view’, location is always a key factor when choosing our properties and Thanelli ticks all the boxes.

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 slightly faster pace, bringing a more upbeat feel and vibrant atmosphere.

Thanelli sits behind Monodendri Blue and 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, Thanelli can be rented along with Monodendri Blue and Villa Heleni to provide a spacious venue for an extended family gathering or a group of friends.

Another triumph. Quality and reliability you can guarantee. Chris and concierges Lionel and Aline were excellent and went beyond expectations. Looking forward to coming back next year.

Gordon McAnsh, June 2023

Excellent views, comfortable accommodation, well balanced for two couples.

Roger Nowell, May 2023

We have enjoyed a wonderful week at Thanelli. We have visited lots of wonderful places, and of course, Loggos, Lakka and Gaios, and also eaten lots of fantastic food.

Simon, Georgie, Charlotte & Sophie, October 2022

Paxos you never disappoint. Thanelli is quiet calming and perfect for a relaxing vacation. Monodendri beach is great for launching paddleboards from. Eating on the beach at Levrechio was amazing.

Richard, Michele and Christine, September 2022

We love Simpson Travel. Thanelli is a villa that has one of the most spectacular views on the island! If you are looking for peace & quiet, then Thanelli is the villa for you. A short walk to the beach below, provides you access to the beach, sun beds, with shade, a bit to eat. We took our own paddle boards & did some exploring, that was amazing.

Michele Girault, September 2022

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Paxos, staying at both markosanw3x3z" Thanelli (for one week) and Myrtle House (for the second). Great to have experienced the island from two different locations. Paxos is a wonderful island for a holiday.

Pamela Goodman, September 2022

We've absolutely loved staying in Thanelli for the third time. Perfect location, having the beautiful view of the ocean and the mainland in the distance. It's great being only a short walk away from the beach. Can't wait to be back soon!

Ward family, August 2022

I love Thanelli and being able to walk to Monodendri beach. Ben’s bar is good to eat in and fussy eaters will find something they can eat and there’s an ice cream cabinit (sic). If you feel more adventurous you can try Erimitis beach but be warned it’s a very steep road and it’s very bumpy – it’s also very hard to walk down in flip flops. But at the top of the hill there is a bar which is amazing to watch the sunset from. I would recommend getting a boat – there are great beaches and caves you can swim through. All in all our trip to Paxos was amazing. P.S. PLEASE feed the cats especially the tabby with part of her ear missing as she is pregnant. We have named her Socks as she has four white paws.

A beautiful week at Thanelli in Paxos. Fabulously situated and a stunning view to come out to each morning. We loved our week here, thank you.

Mrs Grancaric, July 2017

We booked three properties for a large family birthday celebration and we all had a tremendous time. Something for everyone from ages 2 to 69 – thank you Simpson Travel!

Miss Clark, August 2016

We absolutely love travelling with Simpson Travel. The whole experience is always wholly positive and the quality of everything (website, flights, service, properties) is always excellent and, as a client, you feel valued. We arrived home on Sunday and booked for next year on Monday which, I think, speaks for itself.

Mrs Cannell, July 2016

Simpson Travel cannot be faulted on villa quality, location, island reps and just a 100% commitment to service. Got back yesterday and booked for next year.

Mrs Draper, June 2016

You get what you pay for with Simpson Travel. The service is outstanding, and travel arrangements, including transfers, are made as easy as possible.

Dr Clark, June 2016

Paxos is a delight! Thanelli was beautiful with a super view.

Mr Neal, May 2016

Thanelli is an excellent villa in a wonderful location on a beautiful island. It ticks all the boxes and more. If you ever go there I hope you enjoy your time there as much as we did. Thanks to Simpson Travel and their local people on the island for adding so much.

Mr Elliott, August 2015

Great villa, clean comfortable and perfect location. Swimming pool fantastic and very well used everyday. Hope to be back!

Mrs Dickson, June 2015

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.

  • 5/5

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.
