... Kalami beach, Corfu - Out of a Novel


The white villa where the English writer Lawrence Durrell lived with his wife is the principal point of interest on this shore. You'll have no trouble recognising it, since it still dominates the scene from its position at the end of the bay. The second storey was added on by the Durrells at the end of the 1930s, since when they originally bought the house from a fisherman it was a simple, sin­gle-storey structure.
Today, part of the ground floor houses a taverns, and the rest of the house is let by a British agency as an apartment. Kalami beach and the villas around it attract mainly English visitors, and the houses are mainly let by foreign agencies. On Kalami beach you will find boats for hire and water sports, and the travel agents organise excursions by calque to various parts of the island. You will also find taver­nas, supermarkets, foreign press news­stands, and of course Lawrence Durrell's novels. If you're looking for a restaurant, we suggest Matella's.
