The results of our research on the tourism of Arillas were made public on Sunday 20 January. A lot of people came to the presentation and left after a couple of hours much wiser!
To take it from the start, a couple of years ago the Arillas business Association set up a questionnaire to measure how satisfied our visitors were, what they liked and disliked most and other such things. The first year we got 300 replies, the second year (2012) we got back 600 replies. Looking for someone to help us analyse the results of the survey we came across Dr Kostas Tsoumanis.
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.

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.

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.

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.
Whether it is a sandy beach and traditional tavernas run by local families, water-sports, quietens and tranquillity; traditional food and drink; you will always find something that will suit you in Arillas.
As it is a good base for exploring the rest of northern Corfu, it is recomended to hire a car, as the local bus service is very poor and fits only the locals who go shoping to Corfu town.
