Grecian Chic: Choose from two stylish new boutique adult only hotels on Lefkada or Meganissi with Simpson Travel
Luxury specialist tour operator Simpson Travel (0208 003 6557, www.simpsontravel.com) has added two new properties to its portfolio of stylish adult-only hotels in the Ionian islands. Take advantage of the BA flight into Preveza and enjoy an indulgent week at the newly opened Katouna Suites in Lefkada or the exclusive four-suite Keromoussi on the spectacular island of Meganissi, both of which are featured exclusively by Simpson Travel.
Katouna Suites – Lefkada
This week, the beautiful Katouna Suites in Lefkada opens its doors for the first time. This ultra-stylish, adult-only retreat, featured exclusively by Simpson Travel, sets the bar as the most stylish boutique hotel on the island. Standing in the hills above the east coast it has spectacular views across the sea to the Greek mainland and is just a ten-minute stroll from one of the prettiest little villages on the island. The ten contemporary suites are cut cleverly into the hillside, each with a terrace or balcony overlooking the dazzling waters below – ideal for a romantic sundowner. There are also two Penthouse Suites for the ultimate retreat.
Lefkada is just a small bridge away from the Greek mainland. Both green and mountainous, it is less than a two-hour drive from north to south and is known for its turquoise waters, excellent watersport facilities and award-winning white beaches. Explore the pretty offshore isles in a rented boat, enjoy the bars and restaurants of Nydri and Vasiliki or wander around the chic and historical capital, Lefkada Town. Built by the Venetians, Lefkada Town is a compact, colourful maze of narrow alleyways. Use these sokakia to follow the original layout as you explore the delights of the pedestrian-only Old Town. And when you tear yourself away from the coast, you’ll be rewarded by villages steeped in traditional charm and relaxed authenticity.
Prices from £767pp for seven nights including flights, seven nights B&B accommodation and car hire based on two sharing.
Keromoussi – Meganissi
Keromoussi is a new, exclusive four-suite hotel located on its own private four-acre peninsula on the northern tip of the beautiful island of Meganissi. The four luxurious suites – which blend into their waterside setting, all offer uninterrupted sea views and absolute privacy. Service from owner/ hosts Jean-Paul and Natalie is attentive yet unobtrusive and nothing is too much trouble. Complete with a private beach, infinity pool and beautiful gardens, Keromoussi offers a perfect adult-only retreat with the sense of barefoot luxury of a private island.
One of the handful of islets in between the Greek west coast and Lefkas, that also includes Skorpios - once owned by Onassis, and Oxia (one of the emir of Qatar’s six private islands), Meganissi is also firmly on the celebrity radar, with Rothschild developing a private corner for himself and a select group of friends, and luxury yachts mooring on a regular basis.
Prices from £1,486pp for seven nights including flights, car hire and seven nights b&b accommodation based on two sharing.
