Painting at White House in Kalami, Corfu

where Lawrence Durrell wrote ” Prospero’s Cell” , his brother Gerald’s “ My Family and Other Animals” and Henry Miller’s  ” The Colossus of Marousi “.

Kalami, a small village in the north-east corner of Corfu which sits beside one of the most beautiful bays in the Ionian Sea.

Kalami is probably best known as the former residence of the authors Lawrence and Gerald Durrell. Visiting writers, such as Henry Miller, would take up residence in their home at Kalami, a former fisherman’s cottage called the White House.

The natural beauty of the area and the rich history is the ideal place for inspiration.

Accommodation

THE WHITE HOUSE holiday experience features waterfront properties centred on the famous White House at Kalami Bay on the Greek island of Corfu.

All the properties overlook Kalami Bay and are a step away from the beach. They are perfectly positioned on the edge of the bay, sitting comfortably on the rocky Kalami coastline, surrounded by ancient olive groves…. More about location here.

The day begins with early lazy breakfast , at the White House Restaurant on the edge of the bay and then we are painting in open air for three hours per day.

Painting adventure

Our lessons take place daily in the open air from 10.30 to 13.30. The afternoons are free for everyone so you can relax, go swimming, enjoy the sun or work independently

After the sunset, we enjoy dinner as a group following the ancient Greek tradition of the symposiums which were considered to be the most important social gatherings….
