We hired a car from Kalami, where The White House is, and drove to Sidari & it took around 35mins. So I'd allow 30mins on the twisty roads. slighty longer if on a local bus.

The White House Holiday Experience is defined by salt, sea and good food as much as it is about history, heart warming hospitality and the island of Corfu. Imagine yourself basking in the sunlight, listening to the Ionian Sea splashing at your feat whilst you awaken your sense of taste to our fresh seafood delicacies and white local wine. The White House Restaurant quite literally sits on the water’s edge overlooking Kalami Bay on the north east coast of Corfu. It is the lower ground level of the world famous White House, the Corfu residence of authors Lawrence and Gerald Durrell. “We are committed to providing fine dining, to maintain an extensive wine cellar and offer the highest quality service”. We offer traditional Greek dishes, made with fresh ingredients, throughout the summer season. Seafood is the house specialty with our own fishing boat bringing in fresh produce every day. Our philosophy is to only use fresh local produce of the finest quality. This means that our menu is
