  • Adults only
  • Taverna 15-minute walk
  • Beach/shops 8-minute drive

Finding accommodation for two or three isn’t easy in this much-loved Greek island – with its spacious stone terraces, Thodoris House allows plenty of room to soak up the sun or enjoy lunch al fresco in the shade of its pergola. A cooling dip is always an option when you’ve got your own pool, although the beach is less than a 10-minute drive away and tavernas just a 15-minute walk. 

The beautiful natural stonework creates a welcoming, homespun feel to this accommodation that continues inside, making it ideal for couples looking for a comfortable base from which to explore Paxos – and you can start soaking in the atmosphere before you even leave your terrace with views across the island and beyond to Corfu.

Thodoris House, along with Joanna’s House and The Windmill, is one of three Simpson properties nestled on a hillside in the tiny hamlet of Arvanitakeika.

Customer feedback

Another fantastic two weeks, whereby Paxos works its magic and makes them feel like a month. Thank you also to Julie – always there at the end of the phone.
Sandra & Brian – August 2019

From start to finish Simpson and Thodoris House were excellent. Paxos seems to make two weeks feel like a month. This was helped by the excellent organisation from the Simpson team from before stepping on the plane in London to departure at the end. Already thinking about the next trip.
Mrs Bickmore – August 2019

Wonderful week at Thodoris. Rental boat from Loggos – great fun and an excellent way of seeing Paxos. Tried several tavernas within walking distant of villa – all good!
Steph & Tony – August 2019

Love the house – such a big terrace where there are plenty of places to sit in the sun or shade.  Lovely pool – refreshing to get into and perfect for a cooling dip. This is a relaxing holiday home.
Peter & Helen – June 2019

Thodoris House is a perfect holiday villa for a relaxing holiday – so secluded and private but a great range of tavernas within walking distance. We loved our stay and wish it was longer.
Simmone Van Buerle – June 2019

Thodoris House is a lovely villa, with loads of outdoor space for relaxing, dining, swimming and catching some sun! Lovely view out to sea and Corfu and nice to have some trees giving a little shelter by the pool during the morning and early afternoon. Would return in a heartbeat!
Mark Sims – September 2018

This was our first time to Paxos – a beautiful island, so quiet with everyone so friendly. We did some of the Simpson Travel walks – they are very good and we discovered some lovely beaches. The villa and the views are excellent.
Ted & Rosie May 2018



The holiday was a real holiday and Simpson Travel is a cut above other travel operators we have used previously. I have no qualms about recommending either them, the villa or Paxos itself; you pay for what you get.
Mr Summers – September 2017

Simpson Travel really made us feel very special and looked after us every step of the way on our journey to the fabulously unspoiled island of Paxos. We had a very comfortable villa which was convenient for all parts of the island. We made the most of the Greek hospitality, food and drinks. We will be planning another trip back next year.
Mrs Gaisford – August 2017

Excellent company – reps all very professional and knowledgeable. Villa is as pictured, no nasty surprises. Cleaned and tidied well, twice during visit. Quiet area, all villages within a 15-minute drive.
Mr Goodwin – June 2017

Another fantastic villa holiday with Simpson Travel. The quality of the facilities at Thodoris House in Paxos was exceptional with beautiful outside areas. Wonderful support from every Simpson Travel representative throughout our two-centre holiday. Thank you to everyone at Simpson Travel – we can't wait for our next journey on 'the road less travelled' with you.
Carole and Paul Evans – June 2016

This was our third holiday on Paxos with Simpson Travel. A simply perfect week in a lovely villa (Thodoris House) with excellent outdoor space and wonderful views. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and Paxiots are so welcoming. Lovely weather and quiet beaches with Ben's Bar being our favourite. The Simpson Travel walks are excellent, always ending up with a refreshing drink in Loggos or Lakka.
Mr Woodhead – May 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.
