weather in may
« on: February 10, 2012, 01:08:05 PM »
I will be in Arillas for 8 days from 4th May.  As I have never been earlier than the end of June I would welcome info as to what type of weather to expect, both during the day and evening.

thanks
Dorothy

Hello Dorothy - we have been many times in May - all I can say is very changeable - usually quite hot in the day - cool at night - but then again we have had wind and rain too. Just go prepared with a rain coat, warm cardy and most of all enjoy :-) xx
We were in Arillas for 2 whole months and going again for 2 weeks :-)

Hi Dorothy!
I usually go to Arillas in May and September/October. I would say the temperature and weather in May is the same as a 'good' British summer. Mostly warm and sunny by day, a bit cooler at night. It's a wonderful time to be there, all the island is 'waking up', lovely green shoots, masses of flowers and stunning displays of fireflys at night to light your way home from the taverna! My favorite time of the year.
See you there!
Martin.

Hello Martin-w, -
you describe the beauty of Arillas with such passion. It reminded me of your beautiful photos of flora and fauna. Wouldn't mid-winter be the ideal time to show a selection of them to your fellow Arilliacs? We'd sure love to see them!

Martin-W Arillas isn't just for summer. It is for life. As if you didn't know that...

Your watchers have spoken. Please keep 'em happy and me too.

Just Love the fireflies
May is a fabulous time in Arillas, Sunshine Showers a little chill at night

Take something to keep the chill off
Take some Lotion for the sun
Take the nearest Taverna for the showeres

and Just enjoy the time of your life
If I'm not on the Football Pitch..... I must be in Arillas

Hi all!
I'm not very good at getting my photos onto this website, but trying my best to get the hang of it. This is my favorite, I keep a copy near my D.V.D. player for when I need that Arillas 'boost'. It's a slide show of Arillas in 2008 when the resort is waking up to another season. I used photos taken over my first week there from May 6th of that year and it shows, I think, what a 'typical' May is like. The music is from a C.D. bought in Ina's.
I first visited Arillas in 1999 and in the years to follow as I got to know and love the place and it's people, decided to make  a 'guided tour' of Arillas and the surrounding villages and countryside, beginning and ending at my favorite Bardis Sun Hotel. I expect all you Arilliacs will recognize where the shots are taken, the tavernas, the sunsets, Afiones, Ageos Stefanos and a lot of 'off the track' country scenes.
Enjoy!


Martin.

Roll on 4th May!
