Operations Manager: Greece, Turkey, Croatia
I have lived in Corfu for 35 years and have worked in tourism for 25 of those years. I've worked in various aspects of tourism including in Corfu airport, administration, welfare and villas over the years, and have built up a wide portfolio and knowledge of Corfu. I started working for CV Villas in 2013 as the Ops Manager for Greece, and now manage a fantastic team of reps across Greece, Turkey and Croatia. The most important aspect to my job is making sure that the staff are always supported and happy, as well as the guests are content and have a wonderful holiday which meets all their expectations.
Describe the perfect day in your destination?
A perfect day would start with breakfast cooked and prepared by a private cook and served on the balcony over looking the beautiful Ionian sea. Then, up and out to our private boat for the day where we can swim, snorkel and enjoy lunch al fresco. In the evening, i'd take a trip out to one of the many tavernas to enjoy a scrumpcious seafood supper.
What are your top travel tips for your destination?
Just chill and enjoy - Greece, Croatia and Turkey are all laid back and relaxing resorts. Check your mobile phones regarding roaming charges as Wifi can be intermittent.

Sorfrito in Corfu, a dish of veal and white wine sauce. A Turkish breakfast is also not to be missed. Don't miss the seafood in Croatia

A day out on the water to experience the islands and coast from a different perspective. Time for snorkelling and rock bathing in the clear and warm waters. Stopping for a lunch al fresco or in a local seafront taverna.
