The White House History

THE WHITE HOUSE Holiday Experience is about literary history, Greek island hospitality and fresh sea food served on a brilliant speck of an island in the Ionian Sea.

This unique holiday experience unfolds in a small waterfront village called Kalami on the north-east coast of Corfu.

Brilliant blues and emerald greens welcome visitors to one of the most picturesque and charming bays in the Mediterranean.
Days here are spent leisurely gazing at the ever-changing blue horizon, soaking up the warm sunshine or swimming in the tranquil waters. And what could be more perfect than the taste of the local catch, brought in fresh daily by our own fishing boats?
Kalami is probably best known as the former residence of British authors Lawrence and Gerald Durrell. Their home, the White House, has been owned by the Atheneos family for generations and we are proud of our close personal relationship with the Durrells. Our family will look after you, too, on your special holiday experience.
The Durrells’ early descriptions of Kalami and its bay have captured the hearts and the imaginations of many visitors, giving a special identity to this part of Corfu – an island Gerald Durrell referred to throughout his life as “paradise”.
