SPP, I applaud your bravery, to visit so soon after your loss could not have been an easy decision.
But Arillas truely is a magical place.
To visit a place that you have been so often with your loved one, but without that loved one, can bring back so many memories of happy times there together that it could actually make you very sad.
But Arillas is different, it brings back those memories, but in a tranquil and peaceful way so that it just makes you happy remembering those shared moments.
So glad you are visiting again next year, I am sure that Arillas will continue to make those memories happy for you, and for all your family.
Home is where the heart is - CORFU :-)

SPP so sorry to hear of your sad loss.  Hopefully the wonderful memories of your trips to Arillas will help, in time, to ease the pain of your loss and you can revisit special places, be amongst friends and those who understand.



I can't remember if I've posted in this thread before...
I first came to Corfu in 1999, staying in San Stef, with a couple of brief trips to Arillas.  Then I returned to Corfu in 2006 for my honeymoon, staying in St George South.  In 2007 my love affair with Arillas began and I've visited every year except 2012 since (although my love affair with Corfu lasting longer than the marriage!). This year I introduced 2 new folk to Arillas and they will be back in 2013 (flights & accommodation booked!).   As for me, I'll be back but sadly not in 2013 - working on the new partner but at the moment we have to find a compromise of sun and sailing (I do one, he does the other!!)  ... but hopefully in 2014! I'll introduce him to the other love of my life :D

First visited in June 1987 so I think with this and previous years double visits for birthdays etc was our 19th visit. Must be something about the place and the people we like then!

Next season we will count our ninth visits, but the strange thing is we have only stayed at three apartments..... Marina, Mathraki and Makris, and they all begin with M. ?? Can we have a regular visitor badge, or have they been discontinued.
I think "oldgit" definitely merits one too.

 Forgot to add that our first visit was in 2002. We then missed a few years trying to find another place that lived up to the peace and calm we found in Arillas....Not possible, so we now return year after year.

SPP so sorry for your loss - I am sure your wife will be looking down and being pleased that you are finding some peace and happiness along with all your lovely memories. Phil and I have been coming to Arillas for almost 20 years now, and still love it. We have just retired and are spending 3 months, April, May and June in an apartment next to Marvel, we will have our dog Poppy, a border collie with us. Please everyone come and say hello to us.
We were in Arillas for 2 whole months and going again for 2 weeks :-)

17 weeks in four visits, think you deserve a Regular Visitor badge for that Steve.
