Contemporary properties are few and far between on Paxos and villas for two in equally short supply – part of what makes this intimate retreat so enchantingly unique. Together with its sister villas, The Scented Garden and The Secret Garden, The Herb Garden is the creative vision of Kostas, the owner of Purple Apricot hotel, and the location is ideal for Loggos, Gaios, and the beach that are no more than a ten-minute drive away. And yet it remains a hidden gem, tucked away along a typical island track, with access through a grove of silvery olive trees.
However, once you pass beyond the high stone walls of cream-coloured Paxiot stone, you can forget about the world outside and relax in privacy – and a newly planted garden that’s bursting into life, with fragrant herbs and flowers. There’s also a delightful swimming pool and stylish interiors that let in an abundance of natural light. They ensure that this romantic, one-bedroom hideaway never feels anything but comfortable, very spacious and genuinely inviting.
The villa is named after its newly-planted garden, filled with fragrant herbs that form the signature scent of Paxos. Fresh thyme and oregano will add an authentic Greek touch to your evening meal if you’re eating in, or you can just add a sprig of lemon mint to your G&T and call it cooking!

Paxos is a beautiful, small, compact island with so much to do and see. No need to waste a lot of time driving in very hot temperatures as everywhere is only about 20 minutes away! Ideal. Excellent restaurants and tavernas. We had two lovely relaxing weeks in a gorgeous villa and were very well looked after by David and Steph. We could easily have stayed for three!
Val & Gordon – June 2019
A very lovely, quiet setting to get away. Beautifully built property and gardens and the kitchen supplied every utensil needed. The welcome pack had everything needed for your first night and breakfast. We were very surprised how comprehensive it was. The villa was of a very high standard and very comfortable. The villa was cleaned twice in a week which was also something we didn’t expect and was that extra bit of luxury.
Jo Speak – May 2019
Just returned from a wonderful two weeks on Paxos, staying at the magnificent Herb Garden.It was better than we ever expected and would thoroughly recommend it. Simpson Travel came up trumps with this one.
Paul Brown – September 2018
This was our first time with Simpson Travel and received excellent service.
Mr M Dove – July 2018
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.
