Half-term holidays

For a burst of sunshine and a real change of scene, treat the family to a luxury half-term break in one of our family friendly villas or Simpson Hotels. Offering convenient weekend departures and an award-winning portfolio of properties with private pools and child friendly extras in Greece, Turkey, Mallorca, Italy and France, we’ll help you find your perfect home from home.

Corfu, the infamous emerald island of the Ionian is a kaleidoscope of colour as spring turns to summer and its’ exquisite neighbour Paxos is a quieter haven, ideal for families with studious teenagers preparing for exams. But whether you choose the Caribbean-esque beaches of Corsica just a short flight away, or the splendour of the turquoise coast in Kalkan, a Simpson family holiday promises half-term heaven for children young and old.
