Simpson Travel says

Our boutique travel business specialises in characterful and authentic small hotels and villas, the sort of one-off places you simply won’t find elsewhere.

  • No kids
  • Intimate hotels
  • Authentic character

If you’re looking for a ‘grown-up’ romantic bolthole in the Med, we have the answer. Check out our collection of adult-only Simpson hotels in Greece and Turkey, each of them for over-18s only. They all ooze warmth, character and discreet hospitality and are exclusive to Simpson Travel customers.

To give you a flavour, take a look at Purple Apricot Hotel on the Greek island of Paxos. It’s an eclectic hideaway with seven highly individual suites, a gorgeous pool with stunning views towards the coast and a taverna within an easy walk.

Also on Paxos, Thymari Hotel has a handful of one-bedroom villas with private pools plus its own restaurant and two beaches within walking distance.

Head to Arosmari Village Hotel on Crete for an even more rural escape; it’s a collection of stone and cypress wood cottages in a village setting with a shared pool, glorious gardens and superb tavernas serving authentic Cretan cuisine a short walk away.

For more of a contemporary chic vibe, our Bella Mare Exclusive Suites are perched above a fabulous sandy beach and are for adults only (outside of May half-term and the summer school holidays). Guests have access to all the services of the Bella Mare Hotel, a Simpson Hotel.

The Turkish town of Kalkan is a picturesque beauty, overlooked by the beloved Kalkan Regency, a boutique Simpson Hotel. It’s for adults only outside of the school holidays. Along the coast, on the sleepy Bozburun Peninsula, you’ll find our new adults-only partner hotel, Bademli Bahçe Hotel, with six one-bedroom suites. Both are ideal if you prefer not to hire a car, with a host of restaurants in easy walking distance.

We are proud of our passionate and knowledgeable team of experts who ensure our customers have the best possible experience. Our holidays include flights and either car hire or airport transfers, or you can opt to arrange your own travel.
