  • Bright and comfortable
  • Beach and taverna 5min walk, Gaios 5min drive

One-bedroom properties with a private swimming pool are a rarity. Set just above the small coastal road between Gaios and Mongonissi, this stone-built house, with the doors of the living room and bedroom opening out onto the terrace and infinity pool, has everything one could wish for. The view is superb: the monastery of Panagia island, the cliffs of southern Corfu and the mountains of the mainland and between them a vista of sea, which changes with the day. Inside is full of light, and the comfortable, pale furnishings highlight a few of the artist owner's bright paintings. The shops and restaurants of Gaios and the taverna and sandy beach at Mongonissi are both within walking distance whilst the amenities of the Paxos Beach Hotel, which include a tennis court, are just a few minutes' walk away, and may be used by guests staying here.

Whilst maintaining its own independence and privacy, The Artist's House can be rented along with The Stone House and Villa Flora to provide a spacious venue for an extended family gathering or a group of friends.

Customer feedback

The Villa was just perfect. We didn't want to leave! We had the most amazing time in Paxos! We took a boat from Paxos and went across to Anti-Paxos and up to the caves. There are two main beaches in Anti-Paxos - choose the second one if coming from Paxos. Both Lakka and Loggos are worth visiting if you have time. We tried to balance our time our gorgeous villa and pool while continuing to explore the island. Simpson Travel were fantastic - thank you David!
Jamal & Harriet – July 2017

Wow Wow Wow!! What an amazing villa and pool in such a stunning location. We have absolutely loved out time in Paxos and take home some wonderful memories. Thank you Simpson & especially David.
The Harrisons – July 2017

Our first time in Paxos and we think it's wonderful. The Villa, the view and the pool are all wonderful and we have had a great time relaxing, sunbathing, swimming, reading and eating. People were friendly everywhere and the Simpsons staff were very helpful - thanks David for all your advice. As always one week has gone way too quickly - I'm sure we'll be back!

Prof Scholes – August 2016

We love Simpson Travel, Paxos and The Artist's House. Its a real home from home and we will definitely return as we love it so much.
Miss Quinn – July 2016

This was our first visit to Paxos, although we have travelled with Simpson before. The Artist's House is a wonderful location and probably one of the best villas we have stayed in. It was centrally situated for walking to the village and local small bays, so it was not always necessary to use the car.
Mr Ross – June 2016

We found the level of service and the quality of the accommodation supreme.
Mr Kirby – September 2015

The Simpson experience 'The road less traveled' has made our road more traveled - three holidays with Simpson and looking forward to our fourth!
Mr Luckett – August 2015

We have visited the Artist's House in Paxos four times and have already booked for next year - that's how much we like it. We trust Simpson to provide the quality and attention to detail that we expect.
Mrs Wallis – July 2015

Wow!Wow! - What an amazing villa and pool in a stunning location, We have loved our time in Paxos and take home some wonderful memories. Thank you Simpsons!
The Harrison's – July 2015 

Our second time in Paxos but our first time to The Artists House, and what a great house it is, probably the best we have stayed in. Thanks to Kate for all her help and to Simpson in general, they have been great.
Mr Smith – June 2015

We have loved every minute of our stay at The Artists House. Such a lovely place to spend our honeymoon. We have had lazy days by the pool and have also been out exploring.
Mr Nibloe – June 2015

This place is so perfect that we had make ourselves leave to go out and explore.
Mrs King – May 2015

Our honeymoon at the Artists House in Paxos was absolutely perfect. A stunning villa in the most wonderful location. Never have we ever come home from a holiday so completely relaxed and chilled. The Simpson travel representatives from the moment we arrived to the moment we left were just superb. Professional, not over the top, friendly & very knowledgeable. We will most definitely be back with Simpson Travel for our next relaxing break. Thank you for making our honeymoon just perfect!
Miss Berwick – September 2014

The Artist's House was a lovely peaceful place with fantastic views.
Mrs Swan – July 2014

This was our first visit to Paxos and what a lovely island. So laid back and really friendly people. The Artist's House is in such a lovely spot looking over the blue pool onto the ever changing view of boats arriving and leaving the bay.
Iveson – July 2014

This was our second holiday with Simpson, and we enjoyed it even more than last year. The only regret we have is that we should have booked for two weeks rather than one week! Needless to say, we will not make the same mistake next year! Thank you for an unforgettable holiday.
Mr Luckett – June 2014

Everything went very smoothly, the staff was friendly and helpful. The property we had was lovely (Artist's House on Paxos), as we were expecting from the attractive photos on the website. It was a pleasant easy walk to Gaios, which had all we needed and was lively without being noisy. Perfect! Not easy to find a villa for 2 with a large terrace and infinity pool and a beautiful view without the drawback of an uphill climb to enjoy it (only a few steps).
Mrs Todisco – June 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.
