Daria and Tassos Atheneos expanded the White House team and now offer a Durrell Trail in the Corfu countryside, that Lawrence
and Gerry would have enjoyed back in the 1930’s.
Tours inside the White House Villa, where Larry and Nancy once lived and loved, are also popular, as are stays in the The White House itself and meals in the upscale restaurant.
In 2019, The Durrell Spot was opened by Daria Atheneos in historic Corfu Town. The shop offers Durrell-related books and gifts to cater to the many visitors who want to connect with the Durrell’s experience on this beautiful island.
Despite the changes that have occurred in Corfu in the last 80 years, the island remains green and wild in many places.
The coves, bays and crystal clear waters are still delightful and the large, square White House is still instantly recognisable; both as the former home of a young writer and his wife and also as the historic icon “...set like a dice on a rock...”
The Athenos family and the Durrell family have a unique, shared history which is as steady as the “...rock already venerable with wind and water”, that the iconic White House stands upon.
We hope that you have enjoyed browsing The White House Digital Museum and we hope to welcome you one day to the White House Holiday Experience.
