This neat little pastel-pink property sits on a headland overlooking not one, but two beautiful bays. The views are spellbinding and Avra – meaning ‘breeze’ in Greek – has been designed to take full advantage of both the outlook and the outdoor space.
From the shapely curves of the private infinity pool, which is gated for safety, to the stone gazebo, the sun terrace draws you out to enjoy the warmth, seclusion and stunning vistas at all hours of the day and evening. The gazebo is equipped with a fridge and sink, so you can stock up at the start of the week and enjoy your own private pool bar that stays open as long as you want it to!
Inside, the house is small, but comfortably furnished, with a bath or shower room for each of the three bedrooms, two of which open onto a balcony or courtyard area – and one bedroom has a separate entrance making it ideal for grandparents or older children who want their own space.
Avra, just a ten-minute walk from the shops, restaurants and Kalami’s popular Blue Flag beach, is a good choice for families of all ages.
There are also a number of tavernas to chose from, including The White House, the former home of Lawrence Durrell, the poet, dramatist and travel writer, best known for writing Prospero's Cell. His brother Gerald, author of My Family and Other Animals, also lived in the area with his family back in the 1930s.
Kalami is also the place to hire a motorboat to explore the magnificent north-eastern coastline, its secluded pebble beaches and the fashionable restaurants in Agni and Agios Stephanos. Kouloura Harbour, famous for its fish taverna, is also a must-visit – and just five-minutes' walk away.

Jane Cunningham – June 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday to Corfu with Simpson Travel. It was so effortless having the flights, accommodation and rental car booked in one. Collecting the rental car was straightforward too and soon we were following excellent directions to our villa. Simpson Travel go out of their way to make the experience seamless. We were thrilled to arrive at Villa Avra and be greeted by the stunning view across the infinity pool to the Mediterranean Sea with a constantly changing and interesting scene. Our representative Diane Walton popped in to say hello, give us recommendations and helpful hints and tips to make the most of our holiday. The Welcome Pack was amazing and made the first evening much easier. The children were delighted and asked if they could come back again on the first day. We will treasure the memories of our first visit to Corfu and are grateful to Simpson Travel for making it a holiday to remember.
Angela Richardson – May 2019
We have thoroughly enjoyed our week in this well-appointed villa with exceptionally good outdoor facilities. Jackie has been a wonderful rep, a great giver of advice and for whom no request has been too much trouble.
The Walker Family – September 2017
This is a special place, beautifully peaceful and full of rest. Make sure you have breakfast up on the terrace and soak up the view. Breathe it all in and stop for a moment to enjoy it all.
Mrs Simpson – August 2017
Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities , please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.

Follow in the footsteps of Lawrence and Gerald Durrell with a luxurious retreat to Corfu’s North East, near Agios Stephanos, or venture North West, to enjoy more sandy beaches and scenic coastal drives.
To help you make the most of your luxury holiday in Corfu, our collection includes luxury villas and a charming waterfront hotel on Avlaki beach.
