Silver Travel Advisor Partner - Simpson Travel - Greek Islands
Every traveller has their own way to unwind, and Simpson Travel’s diverse choice of holidays ensure relaxation with the highest level of service.
The name Simpson Travel is synonymous with luxury villas and boutique hotels for discerning travellers in the Mediterranean. The company was founded by Graham Simpson in 2002, a well-known figure in the travel industry with over 40 years of industry experience. And still today, Simpson Travel focuses on what it does best, namely excellent service, destination expertise and the ability to listen to clients. It only offers holidays that its staff would want to go on themselves. In 2012, this dedicated approach was rewarded by accolades in The Guardian and Observer Travel Awards and British Travel Awards, and it was rated by Condé Nast on their coveted ‘The World’s Top 100’ list.
The portfolio of properties features beautiful pools only steps away from the beach, a hotel with its own amphitheatre hosting weekly concerts. What is key is that each Simpson Travel property has been carefully selected for its unique features. From secluded cottages in rural Mallorca to modern beach villas on a private Corsican island, contemporary Adult Only hotels on the unspoilt Turkish peninsulas, and traditional Greek island retreats.
Simpson Travel’s destinations are just as varied: Turkey’s dramatic coastline is peppered with timeless villages and ancient ruins; traditional artistic towns and family-friendly beaches can be found all the way along Mallorca’s northwest coast; sun-lovers enjoy Corsica’s pristine beaches while hikers rise to the challenge of its coastal and mountain routes; and in traditional Greek towns olive groves tumble down to the Ionian Sea.
At every property, a Simpson Travel representative will be discretely available to help make the most of your holiday. And the highest level of financial protection will ensure added peace of mind. Let Simpson Travel be your guide.

Simpson Travel’s villas and hotels in Corfu
The essence of the north-east corner of Corfu can be found in its lush green landscapes, stunning secluded bays, waterfront tavernas, small picturesque harbours and friendly locals. The capital, Corfu Town is a splendid mix of historical influences, particularly Italianate, with its Venetian architecture, Fortress, museums, cricket ground (courtesy of the British occupation during the Napoleonic wars), and it has a vibrancy where tourists and Corfiots mingle happily together. Simpson’s properties are mainly located in the area of bustling Kassiopi and the picturesque village of Aghios Stefanos. Also to be recommended is a drive inland to Old Perithia. Nestled just below the peak of Mount Pantokrator (highest mountain on Corfu), Old Perithia is the oldest village on the island, mostly in ruins, but with several thriving tavernas where recipes have been handed down over the centuries to produce delicious dishes in a truly rustic setting.
