The builders of Villa Kalithea are well known for their love of traditional architecture and their sensitivity to the Paxiot landscape. This attractive villa is enhanced by a circular tower, which contains the light and airy bedrooms. There are a number of olive trees around the property plus a variety of shrubs and plants.
The villa's position takes advantage of some of best views on Paxos – a landscape of rolling olive groves, the west coast cliffs and the sea.
Gaios is five minutes’ drive away, as is the nearest beach, and there are some marvellous walks in the surrounding area.
Villa Kalithea, Asteri, Kyparissi and The Round House are all positioned on the same hillside and whilst maintaining independence and privacy, they can be rented together to provide a spacious venue for an extended family gathering or a group of friends.

Kalithea in Paxos was as described by Simpson Travel – being very quiet and private, yet within walking distance to a good taverna, giving good local food. A bakery and supermarket are nearby. The flight and boat transfer were timed to perfection with little waiting times, the hire car in Paxos was waiting for our arrival, all planned with the usual Simpson expertise. The Rou Estate for our second week was again all planned well, the road to it was meandering and in parts rough but the destination was superb, being high up and looking across to Albania, watching cruise ships glide across the sea. The accommodation wanted for nothing and we enjoyed our peaceful stay. Thanks very much.
Chris & Richy Mason – September 2018
We enjoyed a wonderful week at Kalithea which is perfectly located to reach all parts of the island. The beautiful outlook, peace and quiet and general calmness sitting looking out at the mesmerising view. We managed to tear ourselves away to visit several beaches and we really enjoyed Levrechio beach and taverna. Thank you, Simpson Travel. It was also nice to meet the villa owners who were very helpful. A great holiday with lovely weather.
Richy & Chris – September 2018
Villa Kalithea is a gem of a villa: beautifully located atop the central spine of the island and conveniently situated close to Gaios and Loggos. Its advantages include excellent privacy, wonderful views, all day sunshine, a good house layout and very nice pool and sitting out/sunbathing areas. As one writer of a review said in the guest book, this is the best villa on the island and we would not disagree with that.
Simon van der Byl – June 2018
Kalithea has been one of the nicest villas we have stayed in. Well equipped, beautiful setting, great pool and wonderful to have ice and water. Steph has been amazing, so helpful, nothing has been too much trouble, she's very informative and enthusiastic.
The Gateley Family – July 2017
This was our second visit to Paxos, the first nine years ago. Our expectations were not disappointed. We love the Greek islands anyway, lovely people, scenery, atmosphere. The food has improved over the years and there are now some exceptional dining places. Gaios and Lakka are much busier with 'boaty' people and day trippers from Corfu (can't blame them). There are some excellent bars in Loggos too and the Greek music on Thursday nights is good fun. Although we could have eaten/cooked in the villa in the evenings, there were only two of and more fun to eat out in different places. The villa was very well equipped and maintained and the Simpson Travel team were extremely helpful and always friendly and available. It was a lovely week, thank you.
Dr Hartley – July 2017
This is our third holiday with Simpson Travel and as always, a wonderful experience with standards of service and villas second to none. We always thoroughly enjoy ourselves, knowing that all the details are taken care of and if we need any help it is always there.
Dr Lucas – July 2017
Our second visit to Paxos, the first being nine years ago. The villa is excellent and very well appointed and well looked after – thank you Simpson Travel. Steph, our resort representative, has been brilliant and helpful, not that we've had any emergencies. Thank you Simpson, it's been great!
John & Carol – June 2017
Another year and yet another lovely Simpson Travel villa. Hope you enjoy this lovely island as much as we have!
Mrs Szadziewska – June 2015
A fabulous villa in a stunning private location but with easy accessibility both by foot and car to local tavernas. Nowhere was further than a short car ride away and the villa was equipped and furnished to an extremely high standard. The pool was brilliant and the outside furniture all very tasteful. A wonderful villa for a couple.
Mr Hine – June 2014
A really lovely time and very well organised. Villa choice was perfect as was the location, no busy road behind the back door. Excellent welcome pack. Really wasn't anything to fault from the travel company itself. Top class.
Ms Barber – June 2013
Villa Kalithea has been an oasis of cool during sometimes sweltering heat. A beautiful place. We loved: Voutoumi Beach on Anti Paxos and the breeze and the lovely views.
Mrs Noon – July 2012
Our first visit to Paxos and we will definitely be back! Beautiful villa, beautiful island. Boat hire is a must – great way to see the island in all its glory. All in all a wonderful week – we are unable to find fault with any aspect of it. Hope whoever is reading this enjoys their time as much as we did.
Mrs Walker – June 2012
We were very impressed with every aspect of the holiday and will be using your services again soon.
Mr Howley – June 2012
Had a wonderful week here in Paxos – our first visit. Have had an amazing holiday in this wonderful villa. Have explored all over and especially loved Anti Paxos. Took a boat around island and have eaten way too much! Really feeling relaxed and ready to go back and face the rain! Thanks so much Frances – we will be back!
Mr Blake – June 2012
This was our first trip to Paxos – we’ve spent 14 magical days discovering the island. Loved the early season peace and quiet, the fireflies, the scenery and the people. Spent many happy hours at Monodendri Beach – a truly special place. The walk to Tripitos Arch is spectacular and well worth the effort. We have eaten our way around this place....you won’t have a bad meal. Took a boat and visited Anti Paxos – stunning to see this place from the water and the island is a beautiful haven. A wonderful villa...will remember Oli screaming to go faster up and down the driveway!
Mrs Hopkins – May 2012
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.
