About sue willans

Married with 2 Sons. Live in Shenfield, Essex.

Why sue willans chose Corfu

We have been visiting Kalami for the past 15 years since our children were small and knew it was the place we wanted a 2nd home. Now the boys are older we find we can manage to visit for long weekends as well as family holidays. Why Kalami - well you visit and see why we call it 'come again Kalami'. We love the laid back casual calm of the village but wanted a house where we could cater for ourselves and spend the evenings on our terrace sharing a glass or two!!

Avrio, Kalami A Little Piece of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Kalami many times, but this is our first stay in Avrio, the location is on the beach, fantastic, the views from the balcony are breath taking, breakfast over looking the bay is to be savoured. The location and the facilities in the house are second to none. The property was spotless,the layout of the house was excellent with the bedrooms downstairs, all open plan upstairs making the most of the views.

Kalami is a bay to stay if you want a relaxing holiday, I would say Avrio is the best place to stay in Kalami.

Big thank you to Sue and family for sharing their beautiful house.

Simply stunning.

  • 5 of 5

Stunning. Home from home comforts - quality furnishings and linens, well equipped kitchen, fabulous outside area with plenty of loungers and good bar-be-cue, great decking and entertaining area with the best view in Kalami! We've had many villa holidays and Avrio ranks in the top three villas. We definitely will return and recommend to others. The absence of a pool is balanced by the beautiful sea - warm and calm. Can't wait to return!!

Holiday in Kalami

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing holiday. The villa was clean, modern and spacious and ideally located for us, on the beach.

The area is very safe and easy with young children and there are 2 great pools just minutes away.

Lovely restaurants are easy to get to by walking or boat, and everyone was very friendly.

We are going back next year for sure!

A wonderful villa.

  • 5 of 5

Villa AVRIO is a beautiful villa,extremely well appointed,spacious,and with everything one could wish for to enjoy a holiday in the beautiful village of Kalami.

The villa is superbly maintained,and should there be any queries the managing agent Angeliki is available to advise.The owner is always contactable and replies promptly to emails.

The cleaning service attend once a week and are thorough and excellent.We last visited Kalami 20 years ago,it remains unspoilt and retains its magical quality.There is a good choice of restaurants,and boat hire is to be recommended.

Beautiful Property and Location in Kalami

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Kalami for the last eight years and looked at Avrio with envy. This year we decided to go with friends, eight of us in total - 4 adults and 4 big kids (ages 11-16). This warranted staying somewhere that could accommodate us all and it was great that we had the opportunity to book Avrio. Sue is excellent at dealing with enquiries, clear and quick to communicate back with information.

Kalami is an excellent place to holiday and I will be going back year after year. Accommodation in Kalami can sometimes be basic, but the place more than makes up for any misgivings in other properties. However, Avrio is superb. Well equipped kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, Wifi, excellent air conditioning... that mean you are home from home. A washing machine meant we could still look tidy by day 10! The kitchen allowed us to comfortably prepare snacks and food. We even had a BBQ on two occasions on the patio.

Highly recommended.

That's more like it

  • 4 of 5

I've been holidaying in Kalami for many years now but have always been critical of the standard of self-catering accommodation available. While Avrio is one of the more expensive villas sited on the beach front it is beautifully laid out, very well appointed, and I have already booked for a return visit next year. It is a particular pleasure for me to arrive to a spotlessly clean kitchen and bathroom and to find clean fresh linen on the beds.

Owner's Response: Like yourself we were aware of a need for accomodation that provided a higher level of comfort and style. Unfortunately this does come at an extra cost. I am so glad you appreciate the extras and delighted to welcome you back next year. Sue
