Quote from a previous guest ...." We tried Dawn's menus twice and all agreed that we really missed a trick. Had we have tried her sooner in to the 1st week we would have ordered her food every other night. It was really reasonably priced and delicious. Her portion sizes were more than enough and I'd say her food was better than most of the restaurants we tried"

The Ionian Islands region
Corfu, or as it's known locally Kerkyra, is the northernmost island in the Ionian Sea & the westenmost part of Greece.
This beautiful island is densely covered with olive groves & cypruss trees, whilst fringed with idyllic beaches, coves & the crystal clear turquoise sea. Inland you can still find unspoilt, traditional villages where you can still encounter donkeys being used as transport.
Corfu is roughly 40 miles long & 20 miles across at the widest point. The highest peak being Mount Pantokrator.
With a typical Mediterranean climate, summers are hot & sunny & winters are mild & often rainy, so the island remains green all year round. In spring Corfu is well known for its abundance of wild flowers, including many rare orchids.
In the past Corfu has had many rulers & each has left it's legacy of buildings & culture. There are Ancient Greek & Roman archaeological remains, Byzantine Churches, Ventian mansions, French arcades & British Palaces to name just a few.
Corfu cuisine is steeped in history & tradition. It is neither spicy or bland, but rich in the flavours of the Mediterranean. Specialities consists of local ingredients found on the island.
Away from mass tourism, the very friendly resort of Arillas is the perfect place to completely relax & wind down. If you like sandy beaches, crystal clear seas, beautiful countryside, fauna & flora, magnificent sunsets, a good choice of tavernas serving a variety of dishes & the most hospitable friendly people, then Arillas is for you.
Arillas is ideally situated between Agios Georgios & Agios Stefanos bays & close to Afionas, said to be the most beautiful village in Corfu.
A holiday in Arillas is perfect for everyone - families with young children, couples [ young and old ] even if you holiday on your own, you will be made to feel most welcome.
Evenings in Arillas are focused on the many family run tavernas. There are a few cocktail bars which offer some entertainment. Greek evenings are often held, where everyone is encouraged to join in.
Watersports are available for the more energetic and boat hire.
A 30 minute drive away is the Corfu Golf Club. This 18-hole course has been praised by many as one of golf players best kept secrets in Europe, also Aqualand, one of Europe's largest waterparks offers a great day out.
There are several shops in Arillas. Mini-markets, bakeries, pharmacy, gift shops which sell everything from clothes to jewellery and local crafts. There is also a travel agency where excursions and local cruises can be booked and an ATM.
The views from Afionas are some of the most outstanding in Corfu. Views of Arillas & the wonderful sunsets on one side of the headland & the view looking down onto Agios Georgios bay on the other [see 'All photos' above]
From Afionas you can walk to the secluded Porto Timoni beaches.
This beautiful, traditional village has typical Greek white-wash houses decorated with an array of colourful flowers, narrow streets, a small craft shop, a bell tower and some excellent tavernas.
