Just retired John Waller and his Danish wife decide to renovate their near-derelict holiday home. They gain control from their neighbour who has pumped sewage on their land. In a frenetic summer they build a road up the mountain and a pool, veranda and a new roof for their villa. A party is held to celebrate a great Greek victory.
"Delightful episodes and characters emerge from the pages of Corfu Sunset. A highly amusing account of the highs and lows of property ownership abroad with attention to detail that puts most travel authors in the shade."
