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.

When I first started out travel writing, twenty years ago, I was writing a weekly round-up for The Independent. The first PR agency I ever tapped into for their clients' holiday ideas was Travel PR; they were always full of great suggestions for the column and responded quickly. Over the years, I've worked with them on many occasions and their close association with AITO has always paid dividends. Nothing has changed; some of the best story ideas I get herald from them, and their response time remains very speedy. They are a pleasure to work with.Mark Stratton, Freelance Travel Writer
