Durrells on Corfu
Follow in the footsteps of the Durrells on Corfu
Stay at the White House new and exclusive to Sunvil
Inspired by the first instalment of The Durrells (ITV, 8pm, Sundays)? Greece specialist Sunvil is the only tour operator in the UK to offer The White House, home to Gerald’s eldest brother Lawrence, who lived on Corfu during the same period as the famous naturalist, zoo keeper, writer and conservationist.
Set in the idyllic fishing village of Kalami, on Corfu’s scenic northwest coast, the property (four bedrooms) sits on the water’s edge and offers dreamy sea views and the soothing sound of waves lapping the shore. French doors open onto a balcony that overhangs the sea, and the villa oozes character with antique furniture throughout and Durrell memorabilia in the living room. There’s a pretty private patio for al fresco dining or you can enjoy meals around the large wooden dining table which once served as author Lawrence Durrell’s desk.
This is an iconic property that delivers a traditional Greek escape and a taste of the home and surroundings that inspired Gerald Durrell’s My Family and Other Animals.
A seven-night stay costs from £799 pp (two sharing) including self-catering accommodation, return flights (Gatwick) and transfers.

I have worked with Travel PR for almost 20 years - during which time they have helped to facilitate access to a wide range of clients, tourist boards, destinations and tour operators. While the contours of travel have inevitably changed during that time, Travel PR have been a constant. I have always found them to be professional, helpful, and easy to deal with.Chris Leadbeater, The Telegraph
