Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Villa Frosso is located in the village of Vlahatika above Kalami, and looks out over stunning views of the Bay of Kalami, across the channel to Albania. The view of Kalami, nestled between beautiful headlands, is dominated by the White House, where Lawrence Durrell lived in the years before WWII and wrote his beautiful memoir of Corfu called Prosperos Cell. If you are agile and a good walker, Kalami can be reached by a footpath in ten minutes, but we do recommend the hire of a car.
The villa is an attractive conversion of a village house, its rooms elegantly furnished and with two terraces where outdoor meals and relaxation is enhanced by the glorious views. Descending several steps from the villa you reach the main road and Dimitris Bar and Restaurant, noted for its excellent food, the ideal introduction to eating out in Corfu for your first evening.
The interior accommodation is laid out all on one level, with a very stylish and comfortable lounge with fireplace, a dining room, kitchen, one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, and a bathroom. Outside, a long, shaded terrace runs the length of the house and is equipped with a big outdoor table and seating. Gated steps lead down to a separate, smaller terrace, with bamboo seating shaded by an umbrella. The views from the terraces are outstanding.

The Ionian Islands region
The island of Corfu is located just off the West coast of Greece. Corfu enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate along with excellent beaches making it a popular destination for holiday makers. Corfu is very green compared to other Greek islands: hot and dry summers along with winter rain creates lush vegetation which is dominated by over 2 million olive trees. These olive trees on Corfu are the main cultivation, although Corfu's tourism now provides the most income.
Kalami: The bay of Kalami nestles below the hills of the North East Corfu and is famous for both its beautiful beach, and Lawrence Durrell's 'White House'. A popular destination for couples, Kalami is also ideal for a family holiday with tavernas, safe swimming, water sports and boat hire - everyone is catered for!
