What to expect

Discover the main locations of The Durrells from the heart of Corfu town to the sea on this full-day journey.

Starting from Corfu’s historical old town, you'll walk with your guide through the narrow streets of tall, ochre-tinted Venetian buildings, imposing fortresses, twisting alleys, bulb-topped churches and grand palaces to the Boschetto Gardens near the Old Fortress, with their bronze busts celebrating Gerald and Lawrence Durrell. You'll learn how St Spyridon Church was written about by both Gerald and Lawrence, plus is the resting place of the mummified relic of St Spyridon himself.

Next, you'll board a traditional caique boat, sail out of Corfu Old Port and along the northern coast. In Kontokali, the boat will drop its anchor off Sotiriotissa beach where you'll see the house used as the family home in ‘The Durrells’ from the bay. On the other side of the road, is the real Daffodil Yellow Villa, where Gerald lived with his family. Then, you'll sail on to the seaside village of Kalami to admire the White House, formerly the home of Lawrence Durrell and his wife Nancy and hear how it's still owned by the same family who hosted Larry and Nancy.
