Houses with Literary Connections - 1



New on the market is the lovely stone village house that features in well-known author James Chatto's book The Greek for Love. Located in the village of Loutses high in the hills above the north coast of Corfu with stunning views to the sea and the mainland beyond, this house was the home of the author and his wife, Wendy Martin, when living in a remote Corfiot village really was quite an intrepid thing to do. Warning, the book will make you cry, but the house certainly won't. It has grown over the years, and whilst it is full of character it is still basically a family home in a mountain setting. Anyone wanting luxury might be disappointed, but there is scope for modernization of the kitchen and bathroom and plenty of space for a swimming pool.
