What is the current situation with Gerald Durrell's Corfu described in his famous book " My Family and Other Animals"? In childhood it was one of my favourite books. I was green with envy of his child life on Corfu and wanted to change places with him. And to add fuel to the fire there was also that film on TV - My family and other animals. Anyway childhood is gone, but desire to see and show to my children Durrell's Corfu is still here (or what is left from it).
What I would like to visit are Durrell's house (houses) and places where they lived. Did places change much? Mega "Hilton" hotels or still wild sceneries?
EDIT: BTW How Corfu can be reached? It is convenient for me to fly to Athens from Moscow, since there is no direct flight to Kerkira. What is the cheapest way to reach Kerkira, assuming that it surely be ferry, because of rented car.
