Villa Location
Villa Elissavet is nestled in the hillside above the much-loved Greek resort of Kalami. The resort may be small, but it's also full of character with plenty of Greek charm! An easy 5 minute drive downhill has pleasant views of the sea between the trees, leading to the famous White House Restaurant perched on the edge of the bay. Kalami has a good selection of shops and tavernas, all centred around its lovely little pebble beach - perfect for a relaxing holiday!

Location features

Local markets and shopping

This easy-going resort has a few small gift shops and a mini market for daily essentials all located in the street behind the beach, running parallel to the seafront. Serious shoppers should head to Corfu Town, 45 minutes' drive away, which has a lively market, plus many quaint gift shops as well as larger high street brands.

Bars and restaurants

Kalami is centred around the beach which is lined with several waterside tavernas, including the famous White House restaurant, once home to the author Gerald Durrell. Just around the headland, within a short walk from Kalami, is the neighbouring village of Kouloura, which is well worth visiting during your stay. The village has a quaint little harbour with a few small fishing boats, and a great taverna on the waterfront offering good seafood and wonderful views.


The pebbly beach is perfect for sunbathing and swimming and the tavernas lining the back of the beach are ideal for a spot of lunch during the day. In the evening, the village really comes to life with a great atmosphere as you dine. Neighbouring Kouloura also has a very pleasant little beach, shaded with huge eucalyptus and pine trees. Any of the resorts around the North East Coast will also have their own beaches if you fancy a change of scenery.

Family fun

Corfu has a choice of good waterparks. The largest is Aqualand, around 45 minutes' drive back towards Corfu Town. Though a little nearer to home is the popular Hydropolis in Acharavi, around 30 minutes away.

Places of interest

The island is full of little villages and there is also some spectacular scenery to be enjoyed. Why not visit the Pantokrator Mountain, Corfu's highest point, and admire the view over the island to the open sea - don't forget your camera! A day trip into Corfu Old Town is also not to be missed. Here you can explore the maze of cobbled streets lined with souvenir shops. Alternatively, enjoy a traditional Greek meze or look around the old and new forts before a cocktail or two by the harbour.


The islands' only golf course is around an hours' drive away on the mid-west coast.

Other activities

For anyone who does decide to hire a car, access to the inland and coastal areas of the north are within easy reach, and a great way to see some of Corfu's superb scenery. Or, in true Greek style, why not hire a motorboat and see the island from the sea? There are also various boat excursions available from the village into Corfu Town.


Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

Activities and things to do
Self drive boat hire
The Corfu is an ideal location to hire a small boat and skipper yourself and family for the day to explore the many coves and beaches. There are a number of resorts where boats of several different sizes can be hired locally. Usually there are boats with tiller steering and ones with steering wheels. Most boats have a sun canopy. All boats have life vests and are fully prepared. You do not need a speedboat licence to drive a boat with an engine smaller than 25hp. Instruction can be given if required.
Though not known particularly for its windsurfing Corfu none the less has two good windsurfing schools. One is in the south of the island and the other is on Avlaki beach in the North.

Windsurfing is something all the family can enjoy, either out at sea or from the comfort of a sunbed on the beach! A range of boards and lessons from qualified instructors are available, if required

Horse riding
If you prefer not to do all the work what better way to enjoy the scenery and tone up the muscles a bit than by horse. There are several horse riding schools around the island.

There are two very nice ones: One at Avlaki where Alison takes you on a ride through the Eremitis peninsular with its lovely sea views, another is in Kato Korakiana where Sally takes lovely rides through the countryside from her well-tended stables.

There is plenty to keep you occupied in and around the village if you can tear yourselves away from the private pool in your very own villa. Right outside your villa there are miles of gorgeous, unspoilt countryside to explore on foot or horseback. But if you fancy seeing more of the island on your holiday, Kassiopi makes a great base. Achavari, the main town in this area is nearby along the picturesque coastal road and worth visiting for its splendid 2 mile crescent of clean sandy beach, with warm shallow water perfect for playing and paddling.
Corfu Town
The capital of the island and at one time of all the Ionian Islands, Corfu is a joy to discover. With its elegant arcades, narrow Venetian style streets and relaxed friendly atmosphere it is definitely a must for all. A historically strategic and heavily fortified town and port Corfu's history dates back centuries. Evidence of the original site of the ancient Greek city can be seen in the gardens of Mon Repos, the one time residence of the Greek royal family and in the Archaeological museum. Further evidence of Corfu's Historic past can be found simply wandering through the streets. You will come across little Byzantine churches, Italian platias, French arcades and a very British cricket pitch. A walk up either of the two dominating Venetian fortresses that still remain is well worth the effort for the panoramic views across the town, port and sea and for refreshment and shopping you are truly spoilt for choice with a wide range of shaded café bars, restaurants and shops open from early morning until late at night.
Villa Elissavet Customer Reviews

Nicholas Fitzgerald, 28-Apr-2017

We loved the villa. The rooms were spacious and clean and the different areas suited their purposes. The villa felt cosy and homely without feeling like you were in someone else's house. The facilities in the kitchen exceeded expectation, as did the bathrooms. The pool area was lovely and we enjoyed eating outside on the terrace. the gardens and outside areas were also immaculate. When we go back to Corfu we would not consider staying anywhere but here!

We were upgraded to this villa as the villa we had booked was unready for us. I have to say, we weren't disappointed at all, everything went so smoothly, the flights, car pick up at the airport, finding the villa and the whole holiday - really amazing and so enjoyable. The cleaning services were brilliant, we weren't expecting that, so thank you! We also received a wonderful welcome pack on arrival which was unexpected and very welcome. Thank you Villa Plus for making it such a brilliant holiday!

Sarah Fitton, 03-May-2013

The villa was stunning. One of the best I'd stayed in. Lots of rooms, bright sunny outlook and lots of home comforts, some great additional touches which aren't always available at others such as hairdryers, free Wifi and satellite channels. The views were amazing and the variety and comfort of seating areas throughout (inside & out) were great. Loved the balconies and particularly appreciated the gazebo in the garden that provided shade and a welcome respite from the hot midday sun. Georgia couldn't have been more helpful, going out of her way to find us the route for a walk we wanted to do, finding the starting point and taking pictures to show us where to go! The best holiday rep I've had on any holiday. We loved the villa and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. We wouldn't hesitate to come back.
