The Durrells Excursion

The Durrells Excursion

per person

Apart from the whole exploration experience that ’’The Durrells’ Corfu Tour’’ offers, in this top two-day excursion, the revelations go on and on. For you, with more available free time, enjoy even more magic of the famous Durrell family.

Select this magnificent private excursion and feel like you’re holidaying with the Durrell family themselves. We will reveal to you all the intact beauty of this island as we will take you to the mountainous hinterland, between unique locations and old roads that lead to villages of unrivaled beauty. Here, nature remains wild and wonderful in the same way that Gerald Durrell lived it, experienced it and depicted it in his books, books which are admired by millions of readers.

As we continue our journey to the northern shore, and more specific to Lake Antinioti, the lake which Gerald dubbed ‘the lake of lilies’, you will have the unique opportunity to know the place where the Durrells used to picnic. Then, as we move south after a cool short boat ride, we will end up in Saint Arsenius’ shrine which is located, literally, above the sea. From flat white rocks, you can dive into a crystal-clear sea where Lawrence and Nancy loved to swim.

The whole island of Corfu is the ideal scenery for the famous television show named after the Durrells. However, a part of the shootings was unfolded in a village named ’’Danilia’’. This is a quaint and colorful village with squares, a church and traditional cafes and taverns where access is not always easy. Follow us here on this unique excursion and live like a Durrell.

We will take you back to the 1930s, in a different Corfu away from the usual tourist spots. Enjoy nature at its best. Green hills and secluded bays with bright turquoise water, the smell of wild tea and oregano, and in general all the true delights that captivated Durrells. We, the locals, can easily see why Gerald Durrell wrote ’’Gradually the magic of the island settled over us as gently and clingingly as pollen’’. After experiencing this private journey you will feel exactly the same. Corfu through the eyes of Durrells is fascinating!!!
