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.
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.

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!

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.
* 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.
