    “Together we walked with him through the wood,
    following the bridle-paths, until we came to the
    small chapel, surrounded by tall cypresses.”
    Lawrence Durrell, Prospero’s Cell.

    Then take part in an organised hike along ancient tracks in hills shaded by gnarled olive trees and beside pebbled beaches with crystal clear waters. You too can be moved by the flora and fauna that inspired Gerald to become a leading conservationist and Lawrence to write beautiful prose.
    We have 4 trails to chose from led by a certified guide who has an in-depth knowledge of the history and wildlife of Corfu. All the trails start and end at The White House where you can join us for a chilled drink or a delicious meal. You can also take a cooling dip from the very rocks Lawrence and Nancy used to sit on in Kalami Bay.
