We stayed in this beautiful Villa in the olive groves above Arillas for 12 nights in Spring.
The Villa was spotlessly clean, charmingly and tastefully decorated, and extremely well equipped. With gardens front and back, there is always sun to enjoy, and the views both ways are superb! We pillaged the bounty of the garden to make a recipe from the Gino's Italian cookbook in the Villa...freshly picked lemon and rosemary!
It takes around an hour by car from the airport - the directions were perfect, thank you! As long as you can cope with hills, you can easily walk down into Arillas, or along to Afionas. We enjoyed a walk out to Porto Timoni, and also over the headland to Agios Stephanos.
We didn't get to try many local restaurants, as most weren't yet open for the season, but the pizzeria in Arillas was fab. The little supermarket up the road has wonderful fresh warm bread in the morning.
Thank you Graham for a wonderful relaxing stay!
