A new article in UK’s Financial Times newspaper last Friday described how the famous British TV series ”The Durrells” has made Corfu an even more popular holiday destination, impacting its real-estate market over the last few years.

“The Durrells”, which is based on Gerald Durrell’s Trilogy on Corfu and has been broadcast by Britain’s ITV tv station since 2016, has had a significant impact on the island’s real estate market. It has spiked real estate prices, as the increased exposure has led to a huge increase of people desiring to rent or buy property on the beautiful Ionian destination.

In particular, luxury properties are in extremely high demand on Corfu, with real estate agents saying that the prices of seaside villas are now 15 to 20 percent higher than what they were five years ago.

People who work in the real estate market on Corfu believe that the prospects for the future are good, as Greece is experiencing a ”Tourist Spring” with new records in arrivals being marked year after year.

The luxurious villas of Corfu are now being seen as competitive with the long-famous European destinations such as Sardinia or the south of France.
