If you are not a writer yet, you will become a writer here. The White House welcomes you for both long- and short-term stays in the quiet winter month when the island is almost as unspoiled as it was in the days of the Durrells.

In his book Division upon Greek Ground Lawrence Durrell beautifully writes about The White House. “The rooms look lovely and gracious with their white-washed walls, and the few bright paintings and books. The windows give directly on the sea, so that its perpetual sighing is the rhythm of our work and our sleeping”.

Many of our guests arrive here inspired by the words of Lawrence Durrell. They love the opportunity to live in a property where the author spent some of his most creative years and that little has changed about this special place.

So, be our guest in the winter month from November to April and you will find genuine Corfiot hospitality by all our family who still lives on the middle floor of The White House – in third generation already!

A car is included in all our winter stays to explore the island to its fullest.

Winter Special

Christmas at The White House

Why not enjoy Christmas with sea and sun instead of snow-white mountains? Come as a family come or come alone. We will make your holiday season a wonderful one. We will provide the house with a Christmas tree for you and decorate it warm and nicely.

Easter at The White House

The celebration of Easter on Corfu is an once-in-a-lifetime experience full of traditions and unforgettable moments and joy. Every year, the island welcomes thousands of guests from all over Greece and the world who want to be part of these special days. Staying at The White House, will set you back to the times the Durrells were amongst them – going from all quite Kalami by boat or car to overboarding Corfu town.

Location

The exterior of The White House has lost none of its original character. The property literally sits on the water’s edge. A few steps from the upper floor lead down to a private patio with a myriad of Mediterranean potted plants. From there it’s just a few more steps to a common patio overlooking the Villa’s private jetty and Kalami Bay.

The Living Area

The White House Villa has one double bedroom and three twin bedrooms, all of which open onto a large open plan living area. The large wooden dining table was Lawrence’s desk and many other items belonging to the prolific author decorate the Villa. French windows from the living area open onto a balcony that hangs over the sea, with stunning views of Kalami Bay and plenty of space for al fresco dining.
