Book a holiday in Perama, Corfu with The Co-operative Travel, and you¿ll be following in some very famous footsteps. This is the place which first ignited the great naturalist Gerald Durrell's lifelong passion for the island.
Sitting on the island's lovely eastern coast, it's hard to believe that Perama is just a 10-minute drive from the bustle of Corfu Town. But the fact that its only connection to the island is via a narrow bridge means that it seems a world away.
The waters off Perama beach as still very much as Durrell discovered them - and a snorkelling trip will introduce you to the sights which so captivated him, and led him to play such an active role in conserving. The area has a well-established tourist trade, with a good choice of Perama package holidays and Perama all-inclusive holidays available.
There is also a good selection of cafes, bars, tavernas and restaurants to try, offering local cuisine especially featuring fresh fish, but also catering for international tastes.
Understandably, however, for a place where nature takes precedence, a quest for more animated nightlife will instead lead you to Corfu Town.
A Perama holiday is still one where nature takes centre stage, so if this is how you prefer your holiday attractions, check the current deals and offers available from The Co-operative Travel, and you can holiday as nature intended.
