Why Jo calcinotto chose Kalami
Having travelled all over the world ,we have visited Kalami for several years and it is the only place we feel compelled to come back to. It is a relaxed family resort with many people choosing to return time and time again. You often hear the resort being nick-named 'come back Kalami!' Everybody in the village is so friendly. We stumbled across this house a few years ago and simply had to buy it and renovate it! It has been fully renovated to a high standard but still manages to keep it's chic coastal feel.
What makes this Apartment unique
This property is in the heart of the village with seaviews from all the bedrooms and lounge. On each floor there are 2 bedrooms, 1 kitchen and 1 bathroom. The first floor is accessed by its own private entrance up the external stairs. There is a private ground terrace for the ground floor apartment and 3 private first floor balconies all with outdoor dining furniture.

Superb location and accommodation.
Kalami Bay is a beautiful spot; perfect for a peaceful, relaxing holiday. The Olive House was a stone’s throw from the beach with excellent sea views and was also just yards away from the tavernas and supermarkets both of which sold delicious home baked cakes which are well worth a try. The accommodation itself had everything you could possibly want for a home from home holiday. It was spotless and the welcome pack was particularly appreciated.
The only niggle was the shower facility which is small and not easy to negotiate if you have mobility problems but overall I cannot praise The Olive House highly enough.
Very good but the only thing that lets the property down is the ground floor shower facility
Central location,great views and fantastic outdoor living space.
Perfect in every way.
Beautiful property- very comfortable and homely. The location is ideal for the beach, tavernas and the pool bar. Didn't want to come home!
Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are so gla you had a wonderful stay!
Ground floor apartment in central Kalami with more then we expected
This was our second visit to Kalami, last time we stayed at the San Antonio Hotel and passed The Olive House every day. The apartment is nicely decorated & has a homely feeling. The air con works well and very much needed in August. The bathroom is small and the shower even smaller, very typical of Greek bathrooms, not luxurious but functional. The apartment is almost on the beach, with sea views from the large terrace. The furniture on the terrace is looking a little tired and weathered but I’m sure this happens quite quickly in this climate. You cannot access the beach directly from the apartment, but it is only a short walk up the road,down between the shop and taverna which are right next door. Despite its central location and proximity to the tavernas and supermarkets of Kalami the property is very quiet and secure. As we found out when we locked ourselves out! Special thanks go to Angeliki at Sunshine Travel office for arranging a locksmith to come out within an hour. I don’t know what we would have done without her assistance locally.
What we loved best about this apartment was the two lovely cats (black and ginger) who seem to have adopted the outside terrace. They appeared at the patio doors on our first morning and spent most our holiday there. We fed them with dried cat biscuits while we stayed at The Olive House and I hope all it’s guests do the same. We named them Nelson and Sooty. These cats really made our holiday and we were very sad to leave them.
Kalami is a lovely little resort with 4 main tavernas and 2 supermarkets. We found the cost of food expensive in the supermarkets, the one further down the road was cheaper than the one opposite the house. We ate in all the tavernas in Kalami. We took the free boat transfer to Nicolas Taverna in Agni which I wish we had done sooner in the holiday as the taverna was much better value for money than the Kalami tavernas and Agni was lovely too. We took a boat trip to Corfu Town and very much enjoyed this. We also hired a boat from Blue Bay Boats and went up the coast.
During our 13 nights holiday the maids only came twice to clean and change the linen. We did feel in this heat we could have done with the maids visiting a bit more frequently especially to clean the bathroom and empty the bins. It would also be helpful to provide a small initial supply of kitchen/bathroom bin bags. That said, overall we had a lovely holiday at The Olive House and would recommend it.
A lovely comfortable home from home with all amenities close by.
Beautiful house, perfect location, exceeded our expectations, highly recommended
Photos and description do not do this lovely accommodation justice. Stylish, characterful and comfortable, spacious, well equipped, perfectly situated in the centre of idyllic Kalami. We were last here as a couple in a budget studio for our honeymoon. Kalami remains a charming unspoilt place to relax and unwind. So we and our 2 young adult children felt completely spoilt in The Olive House which is the nicest accommodation we have ever stayed in, and we have been to some special places.
Lovely little touches including wine, bread, milk eggs and butter to welcome us on arrival were much appreciated.
Good WiFi and air conditioning too.
Large terrace was comfortable and sociable with French doors into bedrooms and lounge so we could retreat to coolness when sun was too much for us Scots.
Beach one minutes walk and the supermarket feet away so if any of us fancied an ice-cream or other treat...padded over in our flipflops.
Nice ambience in village...wee buzz but no undue noise, just perfect.
Good tavernas on doorstep and by boat in Agni and boat transfer for day out in Corfu Town...we ate out but kitchen facilities and barbecue are very good if you want to cook.
Owner helped arrange taxi transfers and we were happy without a car hire...no need if you want simplicity. Local buses and boats are fine.
We had a ball and the accommodation was delightful...we will return!
Thank you so much! We are really glad you enjoy the area/setting/apartment as much as we do!
Set in the beautiful and quiet bay of Kalami. Restaurants, bars, supermarkets all within walking distance. Kassiopi, the nearest bigger resort is easily reached by car or boat .
