ITV’s hit drama The Durrells is back on our screens, leaving us longing for long lazy days and warm sunny nights in Corfu, the jewel in the Ionian Sea.

The picture painted by Gerald Durrells in his trilogy of Corfu memoirs, including the much-loved My Family and Other Animals, is of an unspoilt backwater destination with breath-taking scenery, and is recreated beautifully in the TV series. Based on their real life adventures leading up to World War II, The Durrells was filmed last summer at various locations around Corfu.

Corfu may have changed since Gerald’s adventures, however visitors today can still experience the islands ‘philoxenia’ – the incredible hospitality, warmth, generosity and kindness experienced by the Durrells’ in the 1930’s.

Visit Kontokali, with its pretty beach where, if you look hard enough, you’ll find the house used in the TV series or Palaiostritsa with its Monastery, famed clear waters and lovely beach where you can treat yourself to a delicious lobster in one of the many restaurants.

Mount Pantokratoras is Corfu’s highest point with panoramic views of the whole island, accessed by a winding road that passes through tiny villages with inviting tavernas to tempt you.


Follow in the footsteps of the Durrells, on a series of magical walks in Corfu's unpoilt north-east coast on our Durrell trails and Walks.
