Arillas / Resorts

What Arillas has in common with the little northerner Agios Stefanos refers to its being rather secluded and popular with tourists looking for peaceful vacations. Indeed, there is just a couple of bars and discos in Arillas, the only ones liable to trouble the overall tranquility of this resort. Furthermore, some tend to believe that Arillas is symbolic of what real Corfu – namely, Corfu which did not give way to tourism – is like, despite the fact that others again might also think of other resorts even more genuinely Greek than Arillas.

It takes only one hour and 15 minutes for the buses departing from Corfu Town to get to Arillas, and accommodation is available at the few small hotels one can find in the resort. Arillas, just like Agios Stefanos, makes a perfect destination for windsurfers, since the resort provides excellent conditions for such an activity. Boat rental is also popular in Arillas. The bottom line is Arillas is worth discovering if not for whatever modern facilities, then for its Greek dash dotted with the few tourism-related establishments.
