As unchanging viewers of Coronation Street will know, cold is not a word that is used frequently to report my character, Carla Connor, or a many eyeglasses of red booze she consumes during a Rovers Return on a nightly basis.

Take me divided from all that, though, and put me in a pleasing villa in a many lifelike partial of Corfu and it is flattering most a usually word that will entirely do me justice.

I managed to shun there with an extended organisation that enclosed my six-year-old daughter Daisy May and my best crony Emma.

Every day during about 2.30pm, when a object had finished a worst, we would conduct down to a stately Kalamaki beach

Our home for a week was Villa Irida, 10 mins north of a flattering city of Kassiopi in a magnificently lifelike north eastern partial of a island. 

Tucked divided adult a high drive, Villa Irida is ample and comfortable, normal and elegant. We were a organisation of all ages, from dual upwards, and there was something for everybody – a categorical pool, a kids’ pool, a ping-pong list and a pool list – that authorised me to indulge my guiltiest pleasure whenever we felt a urge.

We shortly staid into a blissfully idle daily slight of breakfast, swim, snooze, diversion of pool, sea, cooking by a beach, diversion of pool, bed.

Every day during about 2.30pm, when a object had finished a worst, we would conduct down to a stately Kalamaki beach. It’s an amazing, child-friendly stretch, with shoal waters and a white jetty that’s ideal for jumping from into a blue waters next – that a children did again and again.

The occasional requirement to batch adult on groceries gave us a good forgive to try over a protected small enclave to Kassiopi town

Sunbathing only next a Nicolas Taverna on Kalamaki was a treat. Every afternoon, as a waves altered gently, a pleasing healthy firth formed, creation a perfect, ankle-deep pool where a kids would try to locate fish, while we watched from a protected distance. 

Most evenings, as a object forsaken and cooled, we would take a few stairs from a beach to a bar, where George, a favourite waiter served us cold white booze and a feast of courgette fritters, grilled sardines, moussaka and a best sea drum I’ve ever tasted.

The occasional requirement to batch adult on groceries gave us a good forgive to try over a protected small enclave to Kassiopi town, where there is a flattering gulf and glorious bars and restaurants.

Back during a villa, a stresses and strains of life simply faded divided and we was as cold as a tasty Greek booze that George popped into a booze bucket whenever we ambled adult a stairs to his bar.

If it sounds like your kind of escape, we can’t suggest it rarely enough, though we might have to kick me to it.
