Arillas, situated at the north western part of Corfu Island, is a quiet holiday resort with a golden sandy beach.
Gently shelving it is ideal for children. Lazy days can be spent on the soft sand beach where sun beds/parasols are available for hire, whilst water sports and boat hire are available for the more energetic. Lining the beach you will find a variety of locally owned tavernas providing refreshments and delicious homemade Corfiot food, an ideal location for people watching and cooling off after a long morning on the beach!
Evenings are centered on the many tavernas and restaurants, a surprising number for a resort of this size! The North West of Corfu is renowned for its sunsets. Take a table in a seafront restaurant, watch the sun going down over the sea behind the Diapontia islands of Erikousa, Mathraki and Othoni. An unforgettable romantic setting for dinner.
It is a pleasant 10 minute stroll from the villa to the local bakery where you can purchase freshly baked bread, rolls,cakes and savory pastries.
Next door to the bakery is a mini-market where guests can stock up on local olives, feta cheese and olive oil.
This part of Corfu has in the main retained its Greek identity with subtle tourism. In Springtime and Autumn, when the sun has lost its searing heat, it is perfect for walking, cycling, for those who like the countryside and visiting traditional villages.
