This Simpson Secret has the spirit of the outdoors, the villa having been designed to maximise views, light and the sight and sound of the sea. From its uncluttered interior, decorated in the blues and greens of the sea and the gardens, handsome terracotta tiles continue straight out on to the terrace with its wonderful views. A barbecue provides the opportunity to cook as well as eat outdoors in this idyllic spot and one of the joys of staying here is that a little path descends to a sand and pebble beach only 30 metres below the terrace.

Customer Feedback

Fabulous villa, own pool and our local beach was private and quiet. Local tavernas had lovely fresh fish. We watched the swallows bathing and diving in our pool, even when I was in it. Wifi was superb no problems at all. Hope to return again.
Mrs Cuell – September 2017

The Villa Lygia is sublime due to the grounds and the situation - the privacy is wonderful, the location superb and the views marvellous - it is the ideal get away from it all Villa - we spent more time by the pool than we ever have before. Lygia itself is not a resort - it is a lovely sandy beach with a few tavernas and the menus are all a bit limited - however, Ammoudia just up the road (20 minutes) has a better choice of food and for the full Greek food choices Parga is only 40 minutes away. The Northern Pindos National Park is a 2 hour drive and is well worth a day out to see the Vikos Gorge and the wonderful villages around it. Overall - a wonderful holiday!
Mr Bates – August 2017

We had another fantastic holiday with Simpson's help! The villa was as lovely as we remembered from a previous visit so we were able to totally relax and recharge our batteries. A trip up the Acheron river by boat and to the Acheron Springs was an unexpected delight and well worth the drive. We visited relations staying on Lefkada which was an interesting and varied trip across the flat marshlands between the mainland and the island. Nidri provided us with a lively evening and an excellent meal. The best part of the holiday, though was just mooching round the pool and the local beach, eating out in tavernas nearby and enjoying spectacular sunsets. Hard to beat that.
Mr Prince – July 2017

We had a wonderful holiday. The villa was everything we hoped it would be. Fabulous views and complete privacy. Local beach was quiet and the sea was warm and inviting. We will be back.
Mrs Cuell – September 2016

A really brilliant experience from booking to returning home. "The road less travelled" proved to be a lovely villa on a beautiful headland over an almost empty beach with crystalline waters.....perfect. Exceptional service on arrival and overall highly recommended. Not cheap but quality speaks for itself.

Our last day in paradise - it has been the most amazing two weeks we have ever spent! I truly hope you feel the same way when you leave this beautiful place.
Mrs Parvin – July 2015

Another gem from Simpson. The villa, its garden and pool are superb. The view spectacular and ever changing.
Mr Jack – September 2014

The appeal of this villa is its garden, pool, situation and view; in our opinion second to none.
Mrs Prentis – August 2014

An attractive, comfortable villa with a lovely pool and fantastic view, just as advertised.
Mr Wilson – September 2014

Our second holiday with Simpson Travel and another lovely villa. Beautiful situation and we have loved the privacy and peace.
Mr Hodgson – August 2014

What an utter joy it was to arrive on Sunday 1st June. This peaceful, beautiful villa was just perfect for a two week holiday relaxing in the sun and visiting a number of stunning places and beauty spots.
Ms Willcox – June 2014

If you want to travel to out of the way places and stay in beautiful accommodation Simpson Travel will take away all the tedious organisation and planning and leave you to sit back and anticipate a wonderful holiday
Mr Prince – September 2013

Villa Lygia on the Epirus coast proved to be an excellent destination. The setting was idyllic and very private and secure. The owner and his son were most welcoming. We would not hesitate to return.
Mr Crowe – May 2013

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themelves, 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.
