This superb two-bedroom villa offers outstanding views of the west coast of Paxos with Anti Paxos shimmering in the distance and is in a wonderful position for walkers.

Built to the highest possible specification, the villa is light and airy, stylishly furnished, and ideal for those who appreciate the finer points of summer living. There are a number of olive trees around the property plus a variety of shrubs and plants.

Customer feedback

We loved Villa Asteri and its location on a high spot in the middle of the island. The property is well equipped and spacious. The local team of Stuart and Leona could not have been more helpful, without ever being intrusive.
Trevor & Cheryl – October 2019

This was our seventh holiday with Simpson Travel. They have all been very good indeed. The location, the villa, the pool and the overall experience in Paxos this year were all first class. Frances and Leona were really friendly, welcoming and helpful. Leona came to the villa a couple of times and we were very grateful for all her tips and suggestions about the island, its beaches and its restaurants and for her enthusiasm about Paxos. We had a great time and there is lot of the island that we still have to see. Thank you for another excellent holiday.
Mr Graham – August 2019

One week wasn’t enough to enjoy all the delights of this fabulous island. However, we made a good effort and going home for a rest! Our rep, Leona, has some great tips and ideas for eating out and visiting the hidden gems on the island. Plenty of places to eat. Would we return? Without a doubt!!!
Joan – July 2019

Such beautiful views from the villa – we loved the open space that still felt private. What a stunning island – we’ve fallen in love with it! Thank you to Leona who has taken her research of the island very seriously (and who wouldn’t – it’s a tough job and someone has to do it!) and we found her to be very helpful.
Carolyn, Patrick, Caitlin & Finlay – July 2019

Third time to Villa Asteri and excellent as ever. Fantastic holiday home; all on one level so great for our toddling children. All amenities very well presented and glorious views. Can't recommend highly enough.
Lucy Aspinall – July 2019

A fabulous two weeks in Paxos – the first week at Erimitis Bay House with family and the second week at Asteri. Very well looked after by Leona and Stu for both! Glorious weather, accommodation and much relaxation. We’re already looking forward to returning.
Sophie & Sam – June 2019

Thank you so much for a perfect holiday. The villa, the arrangements – everything was fantastic. Loved every second, even the odd bit of inclement weather. Thank you Leona for being so helpful. See you soon.
David, Sandy & Emma – June 2019

Another lovely stay on beautiful Paxos. Thanks to Simpson who make everything so easy – travel arrangements, very high standard of accommodation and support from the team. Asteri is in a beautiful location with wonderful views and have been fortunate with the weather too.
Pippa & Alan – June 2019

Thank you once again for an amazing week on Paxos. Villa wonderful. Leona couldn’t have been more helpful and charming. Spent most of our days on Mongonissi beach.
Mr & Mrs Bawtry – June 2019

 

 

Villa Asteri enjoys an excellent location with fabulous views out to sea and to Anti Paxos. It is very well situated for getting to all parts of this lovely island and near to Magazia, which has some very good tavernas and a fabulous bakery. Another great, relaxing holiday with Simpson Travel.
Adrian & Linda Hawes – September 2018

We couldn't recommend Simpson Travel more highly. Their staff are the best anywhere, nothing is too much trouble and their properties completely live up to the descriptions. We are beginning to conclude that if Simpson Travel don't go there, then neither will we.
Helen Waterworth – September 2018

Once again, a perfect holiday from start to finish. The quality of the accommodation, the service levels of all Simpson Travel staff both in the Head Office and in resort as well as the sheer beauty of Paxos ensured we had a truly fantastic time. We will be back, having booked for 2019 already!
Mr & Mrs Hemmington-Green – June 2018

This is our first visit to Paxos and our first to the Greek Islands for 30 years. We will be back, having totally fallen in love with everything. Firstly, the villa, so well located – privacy, views, walking. Being in the 'middlish' makes everywhere more accessible on foot. The car has hardly left the driveway! Simpson Travel has thought of everything – their welcome provisions – easy meal/breakfast/wine – was much appreciated. The pool is immaculate and was much appreciated and regular visits from the maid ensured we had a pristine refuge at all times. The villa had everything we needed, including good air conditioning in the bedroom. Steph was so lovely – her briefing was really, really useful, particularly for walks and restaurants to try. Despite being here for two weeks we have still not used the barbecue but intend to (as so many other things) on our next visit. Overall, we had the most fabulous time and there is still so much we have not done, e.g. hiring a boat, walks on the NE side, and loads of wonderful restaurants unsampled. As Arnie said, "We'll be back".
John & Delva – September 2017

We've loved our second week in Paxos at Asteri – the incomparable peace, the sparking blue sea and the wonderful emerald green pool. This is our second time we have had the fortune to travel with Simpson Travel who have looked after us immaculately from start to finish. Julie and Steph have been absolute stars – nothing has been too much trouble. Why would we travel with anyone else for this kind of holiday? Most of this week has been spent lazing by the pool.
Alan & Pippa – September 2017

Our family group of four stayed on the delightful island of Paxos in a lovely villa courtesy of Simpson Travel. The villa was excellent, well positioned and comfortable with a beautiful pool overlooking a stunning view across the sea. Simpson delivered a seamless service from the moment we arrived at Heathrow and managed a high level of organisation without being bossy, even picking up the hire car was a dream. The groundwork was laid for a terrific holiday and we will definitely be back!
Mrs Parsons – August 2017

 

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.
