“Simply Paradise”
Reviewed 26 September 2013 via mobile

The Kaloudis Village is a beautiful friendly complex located in the wonderful village of Arillas. The apartments are always spotless, the food at the Splish Splash pool bar is lovely whether day or night, there is entertainment on if you want it - Greek Bingo is hilarious as is the quiz, and the welcome you get here feels like you have arrived at your second home. But it is the people here who make a real difference - nothing is too much trouble for Both Billys (young and not so young), Helen, Rula, Christos, Cathy, Aggeliki x2, Pipina or her lovely daughter - everyone, without question, is superb. Visitors come back year after year, it is like going to your Greek home - totally relaxing with lovely people in a wonderful environment - book through Thomson or book direct and fly Easyjet - either way you'll have an amazing time - already planning our next visit!!

Booked 26th aug- 6th sept 2013 through Thomson for our third visit in three years and once again perfect. As soon as you're dropped off and are met by Rula and taken to your room your holiday begins.This complex is spotless, no rubbish to be found anywhere around the grounds and the gardens are kept and maintained by Rula,s husband Christos who is up at 6am every morning to water and dead head plants.The studios have everything you require when on holiday with extra pillows and blankets if required and are cleaned 6 days a week by a team of ladies who work long hrs and very hard.A well stocked supermarket is on site staffed by Rula and Christos who always have time to talk and make sure your enjoying your stay.A pool with plenty of sunbeds and Bar is also on site and is run by Billy providing meals and entertainment and also theamed nights. As for Arillas itself, you're 50mtrs away from the beach,which is sand and about 2miles long with a nudist beach at either end. sunbeds with parasols which are plentiful cost about 7euros per day.Days are lazy, very lazy.Three supermarkets selling essentials and gifts, a snack bar, a few shops and numerous tavernas some of which are open through the day.Night time your spoilt for choice,firstly do not miss the spectacular sun sets but be warned, blink and you will miss it!!!!! The tavernas are located mainly on the sea front with a few located up a side street just off the front you will be spoilt for choice .Our favourite place to eat over the last 3yrs is COSTAS ON THE BEACH.It is run by Spiros and Kallia who are two of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet, meals are traditional greek dishes prepared fresh when ordered and always hot and plentiful,a must to try for a sweet is the chocolate mousse nearly as good as bacclava.If you want Discos and Bars this is not the place to go,but if you want lovely people,weather,scenery and to totally unwind this has got to be the place.

Booked through Thomson for 10 nights at end of June. Our party had two 'studio apartments' on first floor.

Plus Points:

Really is spotless, I saw the cleaners at work and they bottom the rooms.
Friendly owners/staff.
Great location, Arillas is lovely and Kaloudis is in a good location, close to centre but not in it.
Close to some great restaurants.
Beautifully kept gardens.
Well equipped kitchen.
Comfortable beds (for Greece!) with extra blankets and pillows provided.
Good little shop on site.
Good base to visit rest of island.

Bad Points:

'Studio Apartments' tiny and bathroom miniscule.
Balcony also small with no privacy. You can hear everyones conversations.
Extra 5euro per night for aircon.
Thomson advertises free wifi - no wifi at all
Food in bar poor - Chips aren't a salad ingredient.
'Entertainment' in bar went on until early hours of the morning - a 'singer' killing soft rock songs at full volume reverberating around the complex at 1.30am along with a barking dog with a squeaky toy, felt very sorry for families with young children.
We didn't have towels changed until day five. Rooms not cleaned on Sundays. Towels threadbare.
The main door is glass, the lower rooms had blinds but not the upper for some reason so you woke with the light.


Other:
The Kaloudis Village is what it says on the tin, a holiday village that reminded me of Butlins or a caravan site but with sun. The bar reminded me of a club house with quiz nights, football curry nights etc and if that's what you like then you'd love it here. Its very English, I prefer a bit more Greek in my holidays in Greece

In July 2013 my wife and I went to Arillas on the Greek Island of Corfu, we stayed at the most Excellent Kaloudis Village Apartments. Arillas is a small village right on the waters edge and so so relaxing, a very peaceful and friendly village with plenty of tavernas to enjoy a different Greek meal even if you stay for two weeks or more, there are only two bars in the village and they cant be missed as they are right next door to each other. the star of our two week stay though was the Kaloudis Village, a group of 5 or 6 blocks of two storey buildings that are kept to the highest standard of cleanliness and decoration. These apartments are owned and run by two brothers, Billy and Christos ably assisted by Rula, Christos wife, and a few of the younger generation of there extended family. The apartments are surrounded by gardens that are most carefully tended by Christos and are a pleasure to see ranging from flower beds to giant Palm trees that must have been there for countless years. There is also a very good swimming pool also surrounded by gardens on three sides and the Pool Bar at the top, this also provides very good snacks or meals during the day, very economically priced, and a range of meals in the evening with a different "Special" each evening. This is organised by "Young Billy" who tends to run the bar and kitchen, when he is not joining guests in the pool. The atmosphere round the pool area was always very friendly with everyone seeming to be relaxed by way the family run the whole thing, nothing was a problem, Then there was "Old Billys" quiz nights where the top prize was to go in a draw to win a weeks stay at Kaloudis Village. A wonderful Holiday, so much so that we have booked for September 2014.

1st and certainly not our last visit. Spent two weeks in app no 12 which had the most beautiful views. Billy and all family and staff make you feel so welcome. The apartment was spotlessly clean which we think is more important then every thing being new and modern. The pool and gardens are very very well kept.Roula's shop is well stocked and prices are good. We went on Billys boat trip along with Fevo ! which was a great day. Billy was great company and took us for a walk around the island before a swim and lunch. Would recommend it.Arrilas is so small but so perfect and we will certainly be returning.

Just returned from 2 weeks at Kaloudis Village and already planning to return. The apartment was spotless, We had a 2 bedroom apartment which was ideal for the 3 of us, equipped with everything we needed plus a large balcony which overlooked the immaculately maintained gardens and had a sea view- perfect!!!! The apartment was cleaned daily and the whole complex was always spotless. Rula and her family keep the complex running smoothly and efficiently and are so friendly and go the extra mile to make you feel like one of their family and so at ease- thank you for everything. We will be back!

We visited the Kaloudis for the 1st time this July/ August for two weeks, what can we say the whole holiday experience was superb. Old Billy, young Billy, Roula and everyone could not have been nicer. The apartments are spotless and the gardens are beautiful. The food at the apts was spot on and reasonably priced and the atmosphere was great. One of the highlights was Billy's boat trip with 1st mate Fivo! ( the dog). Arillas itself is charming with lots of lovely tavernas and bars. All in all the perfect holiday and we have already booked for next year.
