Where was The Durrells filmed? See the settings of the Idyllic seaside vistas and villas including Kalami Bay and Danilia Park.

The Durrell follows a real life family as they uproot themselves from England and move to the Greek Island of Corfu in the 1930s.

Starring Keeley Hawes, the programme loosely follows the autobiography of naturalist Gerry Durrell, his mum Louise and siblings Leslie, Margo and Lawrence.

Filmed partially on location, the TV series showcases the island's stunning scenery and quaint street life, while many of the indoor scenes were actually filmed in a studio in Ealing.

Viewers will recognise Corfu's Danilia Park from village scenes - or quite possibly from the James Bond film For Your Eyes Only, which was also filmed here.

This replica of a 1930s Coriot village is a perfect backdrop for ITV's period drama of the same era, with authentic and traditional design touches, creating a picture perfect village.

It's not open to the public, but can be hired for private events. The venue boasts two open-air village squares, a church, café, and the largest indoor tavern on Corfu.

Agni Bay

In Greek, Agni means "pure" and this bay on the northeast side of Corfu is known for its beautiful beaches. To soak up the sun Durrell style head to Agni Bay, where nearby the cast filmed several beach scenes.

As portrayed in the show, the real life Durrell family spent several years on the island of Corfu in the 1930s. Gerald Durrell's book My Family and Other Animals (1956) captures many of the experiences.
