This recently renovated villa, with its numerous shaded terraces and large infinity pool, has a wonderful view of the sea, the island of Panagia, distant Corfu and the mountains of mainland Greece. Ideal for large parties of up to eight, Villa Flora boasts a separate and spacious fully equipped apartment below, ideal for teenagers or grandparents plus a cosy studio cottage in the grounds. Adjacent to the pool is an elevated dining terrace with full barbecue facilities enjoying the same impressive views across the pool to the sea. For those who wish to escape, there are several quiet corners to read and relax whilst the amenities and activities of Gaios are a mere 25-minute stroll or 5-minute drive.

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

Customer feedback

Year after year we continue to receive excellent service from Simpson Travel. Superb villas, knowledgeable and friendly local reps, and the feeling that any issues will receive immediate and positive attention. We love the Greek islands and it is very reassuring to know that Simpson Travel has been grown from someone else's passion and respect for the islands and Greek people. We will be back. Thank you.
The Kay Family – September 2019

Villa Flora – superb location, amazing outdoor space and an extremely comfortable villa. Whilst the interior of this villa is lovely, it’s the outdoor space and pool area that gives it five stars. Pool is beautiful in size and the views added to two stunning dining areas, both with unbelievable views. It’s only a 5-minute drive from Gaios, so enjoying the lovely harbour is so easy. Will be back.
Simpson Traveller – August 2019

A fabulous villa for a family with adult children. It gave us all the opportunity to have our own space. The situation, view and pool area were all perfect. A beautiful island and so easy to explore.
Hugh & Sue M – May 2019

We had a lovely time here in Paxos and Villa Flora has been perfect!
Michael, Vivienne, Angus & Hamish – May 2019

Been to Paxos many times, but this is by far one of the best villas we have stayed in. It has a lovely view of the mountains and also watching the beautiful yachts coming into Paxos. Loved the large pool and dining area – amazing, especially when friends came around for dinner in the evening. Thank you, Simpson Travel, for a lovely holiday.

Had a wonderful time at Villa Flora – wonderful view and lovely relaxing outside space. Paxos is probably the most beautiful place we have travelled to. All the little beaches along the coastline are gorgeous – renting a boat is a definite must! The restaurants are all lovely and welcoming – if you fancy a night in, the takeaway pizza at Il Primo in Gaios is yummy! Simon was so helpful and we appreciated him checking on us. Lakka and Loggos are smaller villages and it’s nice to get away and spend a quiet night there. People and boat watching over a drink at the harbour is wonderful. Thank you again for a lovely holiday.
The Bonner Family – August 2018

Simon, the Simpson Travel rep, was excellent. Always on hand to deal with issues that arose during our stay. All in all, we had a lovely holiday!
Lou & Francine – July 2018

We enjoyed our holiday immensely – the villa was glorious and so was the weather on lovely Paxos. I must say that I think your representatives are superb – present when and where you need them, friendly, helpful and very efficient. The whole thing was seamless.
Mr Jonathan – September 2017

Villa Flora in Paxos was a beautiful villa with wonderful views and outside terrace for barbecue-ing, entertaining, sunbathing and shade. Separate accommodation for teenagers was welcome. All beds were comfortable and air conditioning effective. Pool was beautiful and clean. Excellent tavernas nearby and a 15-minute walk to Gaios. Would highly recommend Simpson Travel.
Mrs Sykes – July 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.
