Discover Corfu with Lee Durrell

Come and explore the magical Mediterranean island that inspired ITV's hit drama The Durrells. Aside from Keeley Hawes, who plays a British widow who moved her family to Corfu in 1935, one of the biggest stars of the show is the island itself. In fact, it's almost impossible to watch the hit show or read Gerald Durrell's wonderful books on which it’s based without thinking, "I wish my family had moved to Corfu!"

So this is your chance to go on an unforgettable five-day holiday that includes some fantastic treats for Durrell fans. During this exclusive Corfu experience, we'll get the chance to meet the famous naturalist and writer Lee Durrell, who will give a private talk about her family's love affair with the island and her late husband Gerald's pioneering role in wildlife conservation. Lee will also accompany us on a visit to some of the Durrell family's favourite places in Corfu.

We have arranged the very best luxury accommodation for our stay on the island - the five-star Corfu Holiday Palace. There will also be plenty of time to relax by the pool or on the hotel's private beach, and to explore Corfu at your own pace.

So instead of daydreaming about The Durrells, why don't you come and discover this beautiful and beguiling Mediterranean island for yourself? Lee Durrell will be the perfect guide to the Corfu that she, her late husband Gerry and the family Durrell so fell in love with.
