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 and museums. The whole island has a vibrancy, with tourists and Corfiots mingling happily together and most of our properties are located in the fashionable area of bustling Kassiopi and around the picturesque village of Aghios Stefanos. A drive inland to Old Perithia comes highly recommended; nestled just below the peak of Mount Pantokrator (the highest mountain on Corfu), it is the oldest village on the island. Though mostly in ruins, there are several thriving tavernas where recipes have been handed down over the centuries to produce delicious dishes in a truly rustic setting.

Simpson Travel’s villas and hotels in Crete
Crete epitomises the beauty and tradition of Greece, with rolling olive groves, snow-capped mountains, and pristine beaches where broad blue skies blend into the sea. Our contemporary beachside villas and stylish hotels are ideal for guests seeking to relax in the sun, whilst our rural adult-only Arosmari Village hotel, with its charming amphitheatre hosting weekly concerts, is the perfect base from which to experience traditional Crete. Throughout the island, abundant wildlife and flourishing flora provide a stunning backdrop to the country’s ancient history and the ruins of the Minoan civilisation at Knossos are a truly remarkable window on another time.
