Hi all,
My wife and I will be arriving in Arillas on the 9th of June for the first time, we have been to Corfu several times before but have never been to Arillas so we are looking for a few pointers from the more experienced visitors to this part of the island. We will be bringing our daughter and her fella who are both about 30 and have never been to Greece before and their two children who are 4 and 5. We are staying at the Marina hotel for two weeks, we have chosen self catering as going for a leisurely evening stroll and finding somewhere nice is a big part of our holiday and we wouldn't have it any other way. Our first night will be spent at the Marina enjoying the Greek night. Previously my wife and I have stayed in Paleokastritsa so we will be popping over there a few times I should imagine, we have also planned to take the kids to Aqualand, we will be renting a boat for a day, there will no doubt be a few trips in to Corfu town, across to Kassiopi, up Pantokrator, Old Perithia, the Achilleon Palace, Angelokastro, Erikousa (not sure if I spelled that right), a bit of snorkelling here and there and plenty of great food in all sorts of little tavernas but what we would like is some suggestions for what to see and do in and around the local area of Arillas both during the day and in the evening. I'm sure we will be fine but there is nothing worse than visiting somewhere and finding out when you get home that you missed out on a fantastic restaurant or a spectacular beach just because you didn't know it was there.
46 days to go.

Make sure you get up to Afionas one evening and go to the Mama's Kitchen style taverna, on the left as you walk towards Afionas point.  It's a "point from the pots" type of place, delicious food and it was only open evenings when we last visited in the summer of 2010.  

Make sure you find the Brouklis taverna in the road away from the sea towards the bakery for the yummy courgette keftedes and the "just warm" galactoboreko.    

Make sure you walk up to the ridge overlooking San Stef - a couple of bars up there with magnificent views on either side of the ridge. 

You have mentioned all of our favourite things - particularly Old Perithia and O Foros Taverna for walnut cake.

You may want to consider doing the East Coast cruise from Kassiopi - that was a nice day, stopping off at a couple of places during the cruise. 

Have a great time!

Thanks very much for the info, really like the sound of Mama's kitchen style taverna and also the East coast cruise from Kassiopi, we've never seen that before but it is nearly six years since we were last in Corfu so you can imagine how much we are looking forward to getting there, thanks again.
Regards,
Ray & Sally

I believe that Corfu Brewery is in Arillas also so if you fancy seeing how the beer is made and sampling it, then it may be worth a visit.

You must try Thalassa on the seafront.  Lovely food in a beautiful location.
