Early bird offer... Many of our 2022 holidays are now on sale and we're promising this year's prices when you book before 30 June 2021. The offer only applies to properties where 2022 prices are listed but all other properties can still be reserved online using our Advance Registration scheme.

This 3-bedroom property is a charming mix of traditional and contemporary styles, with an adaptable layout to suit both families and groups of friends travelling together. There are two bedrooms in the main villa, where a large, airy open-plan sitting/dining room and kitchen has French doors leading out to a pool terrace with a 20m infinity pool. The annexe is accessed from the terrace and is home to a double bedroom with en-suite shower room. Inside and out the property feels wonderfully spacious and made for relaxation.

Set just above the small coastal road between Gaios and Mongonissi, this house has a delightful view across the sea towards Corfu and the mainland as well as to Panagia Island and its monastery. 

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

Good to know… The Stone House has been refurbished and extended over the winter to include an annexe and larger pool for 2021. We look forward to publishing new photographs as soon as they become available.

Customer feedback

Stuart was a wealth of information regarding The Stone House and Paxos. We only contacted him once during our stay as we were having trouble organising a taxi but he dealt with it immediately for us. Given that it was his first time as a rep and on Paxos, he was superb!
Mr Fairs – August 2019

Simpson Travel made the whole experience seamless – they’d thought of everything from being met at every stage to a welcome pack of food essentials in arrival. The property was lively and Stuart, our Simpson representative in Paxos, was friendly, extremely helpful yet discreet and thoughtful.
Blaise Douglas – August 2019

All very good. The Simpson Travel representative was very helpful. We found Genesis probably the best restaurant in Gaois. Loggos was very peaceful. Relaxing bars overlooking the sea. Beaches all pleasant – some rather stony, not much sand. Second holiday with Simpson Travel, no doubt we will be back.
Terry & Diana – September 2018

Newbies to Paxos and have absolutely loved it! This house has suited us – a family of 4, mum, dad and our two 6’3” ‘boys’ – extremely well. Such a lovely place to stay and a great location. There is boat hire from Captain Nikos at Loggos plus drinks at Roxi which is a ‘must do’.
The Binks – July 2018

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 relaxing time sunbathing, swimming, reading and eating. We particularly liked Vitoumi beach on Anti Paxos and Mongonissi beach on Paxos, especially when the sunbeds were on the beach. People were friendly everywhere and the Simpson Travel staff were very helpful – thanks David, for all your advice. As always one week has gone too quickly – I'm sure we'll be back.
Sue & Andy – June 2017

 

Our rep Kate in Paxos was very helpful and obliging. The villa was lovely and we had a great holiday. Many thanks for all your help.
Mrs Dring – August 2016

This is our third booking with Simpson Travel and our first time to Paxos. We have learnt from our past experience that booking with Simpson gives you assurance and peace of mind – receiving a quality level of service and villa. With Simpson, it's not about resolving issues, it's about there being no issues. Everything is planned and executed, just like a well-rehearsed play. We booked The Stone House not only because of its location overlooking the sea, but because of the dappled shade that the olive trees provide in the garden. We spent many of our lunches under the trees, with a bottle of rosé wine, watching the boats go by on the sea. The villa was immaculate in terms of its internal furnishings. It had a modern kitchen and a beautiful, light and cool living area. Such a delight to come back to after being in the hot sun. As always with Simpson, the bed was large and comfortable, with quality linen and pillows. We would recommend The Stone House, Paxos and Simpson Travel to anyone.
Ms Gil – June 2016

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