We would like to reassure you that in Arillas-Corfu, life goes on as usual,
At the moment Arillas is full with our regular customers and many newcomers, everyone is enjoying themselves as usual. The fact that people bring extra cash with them, sterling being much stronger these days and the pure hospitality of the Arillas people leaves everyone feeling that the Greek economy is much better than in the UK or other European countries
I have been coming to the village for years and enjoy walking to the shrines past the Akrotiri and to the village of Afionas but the Arillas Trail is something new.
It is the best signed trail I have come across. In just under two hours I was never in any doubt as to which way to go. The planners are to be congratulated.
I went on my own, armed with a small bottle of water, at the start of August. It was a truly memorable and very enjoyable experience. Thank you to all involved in its creation.
If you have had any problems during your stay please tell us and provide us with an opportunity to try and address your concerns.
During winter time, the Arillas Cultural Organization in cooperation with other residents and the Business Organization, have made efforts to create a foot path between the two main roads of our Area, as well as a walking trail that starts at the beach between Thallasa Restaurant and Kostas on the beach Taverna along the Arillas Stream, up to the bridge after the bakery and then all the way to the olive-groves of the Agricultural area of our village.

This hand drawn map of Corfu was conceived in 1993 and completed in 1997. It covers the whole of the island in great detail, and in addition to a super large scale detailed map of the area around Mount Pantokrator, there are large scale maps of Corfu Town and Kanoni. I lived in the resort of Nissaki and wintered in Loutses, but one of my favourite resorts was Arillas and the surrounding area. It was very frustrating finding this picturesque village with the existing maps – none of them showed the routes correctly, and I, as well as many holidaymakers ended up going round in circles. Finding this, and other places easily and clearly was the spur to me to create a definitive map of Corfu. In 2008, it remains the best road and track guide to this beautiful island, and has gained a cult status with aficionados and lovers of Corfu. I have so many letters of praise from people telling me how effortlessly they are able to navigate the sometimes badly signed roads with ease, that I know for certain that it is still an essential companion for anyone who wants to discover the whole of Corfu, or just find their way easily to such gems as Arillas, even more than ten years after it was first published. A number of minor roads shown as unsurfaced or gravel have now been tarmaced, and several resorts have seen expansion and development, but overall, the map remains a true reflection of the island’s network. I even have testimonials from several taxi drivers! What better recommendation than that for a map!
The size of the sandy beach of Arillas is different almost every day. It all depends on the current of the sea and the direction of the wind which moves the waves.
Sand is a liquid element with specific dynamic.
The shape of the beach depends on whether or not the waves are constructive or destructive.

An article which was inspired from our forum's topic about whether Arillas is an authentic place or not.
During the middle age, Corfu was full of small communities that lived on the hills away from the coasts, as there was always a fear of foreign attacks like pirates etc. that would come in to the island to robe and destroy what ever they found.
