This two-bedroom stone house is a charming mix of traditional and contemporary styles.  A very large, airy open-plan sitting/dining room and kitchen has several French windows leading out to a shaded terrace and a garden full of bright climbers, on one side of which there is a swimming pool. Inside and out the property feels spacious and relaxed.

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. The Paxos Beach Hotel lies below the house to one side, virtually invisible in its gardens, and guests staying here may use its facilities including a tennis court.

Whilst maintaining its own independence and privacy, 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.

Customer feedback

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 the Viteras beach as Anti-Paxos and Meganissi beach, especially when the sunbeds were on the beach. People were friendly everywhere and the Simpson 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 & we had a great holiday. Many thanks for all your help.
Mrs Dring – August 2016

This is our third booking with Simpson Travel and first time to Paxos We have learnt from our past experience that booking with Simpson gives you assurance and peace of mind of 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 sat under the trees, with a bottle of rose wine, watching the boats going by on the sea (It's hard to find mature gardens, particularly in the newer villas, where the trees have been cut down) The villa was immaculate in terms of it's 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 to anyone
Ms Gil – June 2016

 

We loved The Stone House, perfect position to walk into Gaios. We are sad to be going - Paxos is a wonderful island - the people are incredibly friendly to everyone.
Mrs Meynell – July 2015

We loved our week on Paxos in The Stone House. So many great memories to take away. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.
Mrs Harris – May 2015

Wonderful holiday in Paxos, super welcome hamper, great support team and a villa with picture perfect views! We have not traveled with Simpson before but will certainly do so again.
Dr Hughes – May 2014

A first class experience right across the board. The best travel company we have ever used. A faultless offering!
Mr Wilson – September 2013

We have just returned from another superb holiday with Simpson Travel, this time to Paxos and Corfu. We received excellent information about the two destinations both in England, whilst researching and booking, and in Greece, from the local reps. Our properties were charming and comfortable in stunning locations. Thank-you Simpson!
Mrs Mutton – August 2013

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.
