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 Arillas main road between Arillas Dream Studios and Marvel Hotel 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.
On April 12th 2014 I visited the Corfiot village of Arillas as part of the 50th anniversary celebration for the University of Ioannina, which turned out to be an interesting visit.
Arillas is a small settlement between Agios Stefanos and Agios Georgios, approximately 40 km from Corfu town. What impressed me most was seeing the solidarity, collegiality, companionship, trust and the mutual willingness to support each other, that is noticeable between its residents. They live by the principle that every individual’s effort that serves the shared goal will return to them manifold. In the same way, an action that harms the community will ultimately harm the individual as well.
This motto serves the improvement of the inhabitants’ lives as well as the touristic development of the region, which makes their home and workplace a positive role model as a holiday destination.
The new updated official map of Arillas in printed version is now available for you to print before you come to your destination. It contains all points of interest,like Hotels, tavernas, bars, cafes, shops, as well as walking paths and shortcuts to the next areas. The map was initially created by a small team of our Business association in order to be posted in central crossroads of the resort.
In Arillas Beach the winter swimmers met today to celebrate their hobby , the fans of winter swimming gather on the beautiful beach of Arillas , where they cut the New Year cake of their (unofficial) club. that was an informal meeting from the local people who dare to swim all year round. we do hope that this will be repeated every year on a specific day by all-weather conditions.
A local bus timetable from Sidari to Agios Stefanos, Arillas, Agios Georgios and Back to Sidari.
Now you can explore the near-by resorts from Arillas with a frequent public transport.
EVERY DAY AND SUNDAYS!
BUS STOP is outside Arkokal travel and Vasilis Supermarket on Arillas Main road.
"THE BENCH" from the Arillas Pier was taken from the beach today and it will be stored and restorated for the next Season.
Thanks to all involved !!
An article by Morgan Hamilton, columnist at www.edinburghcamra.co.uk who visited Corfu and discovered the taste of our Arillas beer.
I was in Greece recently and seen a bottle of “Real Ale Special” on the supermarket shelf. Of course this caught my eye and on closer examination I read the label and found out it is brewed in Arillas, Corfu.
Having been to Arillas in the past for a family holiday this intrigued me, so I did some detective work, and also drank quite a few of the beers, only for background information as those of you who know me will be aghast that I strayed from my usual half pint of Newton & Wrigley’s.
