Go Behind the Scenes of The Durrells’ Corfu

Grecotel Danilia Village takes centre stage in ITV’s hit series

The Durrells are back! Set to air this week, the ITV smash hit will carry on the drama of an audacious family who swap their lives in London for heart-warming adventures in Corfu. Taking centre stage, Grecotel Danilia Village, where the series was filmed, makes it possible to uncover this sun-drenched Greek island as depicted in the 1930s.

Once left to deteriorate, Danilia Village was restored to its former glory by the Daskalantonakis family, proprietors of Grecotel, the leading luxury hotels and resorts collection in Greece. But rather than turning Grecotel Danilia Village into a hotel, the Daskalantonakis family maintained the charm of an original Corfu town with open-air village squares, narrow lanes and an iconic church.

Just under 5 miles from the Old Town of Corfu, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and even closer to the natural wonders of Kommeno Peninsula, Grecotel Danilia Village is free to visit. However, only Grecotel guests have the privilege. One option is Daphnila Bay Thalasso Grecotel All-inclusive Resort lying on a quiet sandy beach, wrapped in a ribbon of trees for natural shade. Nearby, Eva Palace Grecotel Luxury Resort, a macaroon-coloured resort perched on a secluded bay, is among the best spots in Greece to catch a sunset view.

Last but not least, Corfu Imperial Grecotel Exclusive Resort offers an exclusive collection of Venetian-style suites with 360 degree-views of the Ionian Sea and Kommeno peninsula. Here, private bays, luxurious villas with direct sea access and award-winning restaurants with extensive verandas represent the best of Greek hospitality and ooze romance. It’s the perfect setting for honeymoons and weddings. 

The Durrells package at Corfu Imperial includes the following:
•          Daily breakfast buffet
•          Bottle of wine and fruit in room upon arrival
•          Complimentary private tour (including round-trip transfer) of Grecotel Danillia Village, culminating in a signature Corfu Koum Kouat Cocktail
•          Private transfer to The Durrells’ ‘White House’, a prized villa overlooking the beach.
 

Rate start from just €225 (approx. £ 192) per night in a deluxe double room with sea view. Rate is valid for stays in May (1-27/5) and October (1-23/10) 2017 for minimum of 5 nights. Booking requires a two night’s deposit. Rates may differ between periods and room categories.
