The Picture of the day
In Arillas almost every family grows potatoes as often as twice a year. The fertile land and warm climate offer an ideal environment for everyone to grow their own potaoes.
Since earlier times, it is common not to eat the potatoes as they are, freshly taken from the field, as they can be poisonous. So the potatoes are usually stored directly in a dark and dry space in the house for a couple of weeks before they can be cosumed.
Low atmospheric pressure, the moon face and strong southeast winds have caused the sea level to drop by as much as 30cm in western ionian sea.Which is visible today at our beach.
Our ancestors have always point out that this is a periodic phenomenon, usually occurring in early spring or winter, adding that there is no cause for concern. Sea levels usually return to normal after eight to 10 days. Local fishermen still call it ''Λιγονεριά'' (ligoneria) which means: smaller amount of water in the sea.
A study carried out by the Hellenic Society of Environment and Cultural Heritage, in order to demonstrate the Local Community of Arillas , proposes some solutions in order to come up against the miscellaneous problems the area faces.
It was summer, a few years ago, when a wealthy American couple arrived at their luxury accommodation in Arillas Corfu with a dream: to visit Porto timoni beach in Afionas. How could they imagine that, in such a place in the north of the island, to cover a distance of about 2 kilometers would take them 35 minutes in their car due to traffic jam and lack of parking in Afionas area? In the end, they never arrived at their destination. .
With today's aerial pictures and video we would like to wish everyone a happy, healthy, peaceful and nice new year!!! Arillas will be waiting for your next visit together with the sunsets, the crystal clear water and rest of the nature together with your people!!! ALL THE BEST to you our real fiends!!!
