What a brilliant thing to do and I imagine it will quickly become popular with visitors. Should I get to Arillas this year it will certainly be on the 'to do' list.
Thanks Dimitris and the people of Arillas for the opportunity to explore other parts of the village :-)

Now I'm going to be cheeky ,any chance of plotting the route on google earth and posting it on here ?
Tony :-)

Thanks for the feed back, I don't know how it can be done on goggle earth.
I can provide you with the following image where the path is shown.
Perhaps someone can draw it on google earth and post it here.

What a lovely idea, like a little treasure hunt with beer at the end!  Sounds perfect and I will enjoy in July.

Thank you, Dimitris.

It just needs someone to walk it carrying an Android phone or Iphone with a tracking App. I use one called Cardiotrainer
(http://www.noom.com/cardiotrainer/about.php ) and it just uses GPS to track your walk and uploads it to the internet. It produces a KML file that you can share to be viewed in Google Earth.

This is how the file could be shared - try this link and download the kml file. It will then open in Google earth

Another positve for the village we call home. Something similar to the heritage trail a few years back. 
Will definitely try out the walk and to finish off with a beer, what more could you ask.

 Thanks, Dimitris.

Looking forward to the new walk Dimitris, this will open up a whole new aspect of Arillas because we will know we are not trespassing on someones land.

Hi Dimitris just had a quick try to plot the map but the image you posted is slightly small to really recognize the exact route i can make certain landmarks out but there is a lot of guess work as to the route
If you have Google earth open it and go to the Arillas area on your toolbar at the top is ruler click that then a box opens click the path tab then put your cursor over where you want to start the route and click then move your cursor to the next part of road or path you wish the route to be on and click again and you will see that section highlighted then just carry on doing the same right to the end of the route and save it you can then download the pic with the plotted route on for here
Here is an example of what it will look like this is the Racing circuit around Corfu town
