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 is 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 Monodendri’s two waterside tavernas. In the height of summer, late July and August, Monodendri’s personality changes and 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.

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.

Customer feedback

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!
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

You get what you pay for with Simpson. The service is outstanding, and travel arrangements, including transfers, are made as easy as possible.
Dr Clark – June 2016

Simpson Holidays cannot be faulted on villa quality, location, on island reps and just a 100% commitment to service. Got back yesterday booked for next year (2017) and travelling with you in September 2016.
Mrs Draper – June 2016

 

Paxos is a delight! Villa 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 this last week. 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

First time with Simpson and will not be the last! First class service from start to finish. Thanelli a delightful villa with high quality mod cons. Three times a week maid and pool service, linen change twice a week, perfect. Paxos is a truly magical island and, for us, offered wonderful walking. October suited us well as it is quiet after the summer season but still with hot sunny days. The tiny harbours of Lakka and Loggos gave us wonderful food in dreamy settings. We shall be booking with Simpson again, that's for sure! Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
Mrs Ratchford – October 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.

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 unique Adult Only Simpson Hotel and make the most of this peaceful island.
