This place draws plenty of return visitors, and it’s easy to see why. For starters, it’s family-run, and you get a really warm welcome from the owners. Plus, it’s a real winner in the location stakes, with a prime spot right by sandy Arilas Beach.
Inside the apartments, classic Greek décor is the name of the game. Think whitewashed walls, sea-blue soft-furnishings and simple wooden furniture. There’s air-conditioning to keep things cool, and kitchenettes for rustling up simple meals. Plus, all rooms come with a balcony or terrace, so you can dine outside whenever you fancy.
Elsewhere, meals and snacks are served up in the pool bar. All wooden beams and panels, it has a really traditional feel. And the food is just as rustic, with home-cooked Greek fare on the menu. The hotel lays on a weekly barbecue, too, and there’s a shop on-site, so you can stock up on self-catering essentials.
In terms of what else to do here, things are pretty low-key. Days tend to be played out by the pool, a good-sized rectangular number. At night, meanwhile, you’ve got a handful of bars and tavernas to choose from, and they take less than ten minutes to walk to.

Arillas is hell on earth
Have waited a long time to review these apartments which are really good no complaints but the actual place is a nightmare. Brochure says shops ,three supermarket and an upmarket clothes shop. Was never told only one bus a day to corfu leaving at 6.30am and returning 6.30pm. No taxis if you wanted one it was 30euros for starters as it had to come from Sidari. Had been at Sidari before but thought we would try another part of the island,what a mistake. Never seen so many hill walkers and people on electric scooters,you could not have made it up. the wind was constant howl some days you could not walk in it. I have never been on a holiday where i wanted to go on the buses that came to pick people going home,how sad is that. Back to the apartments .the reviews build them up to be out of this world,have been in worse and been in better. Billy behind bar was really nice and worked long long hours. Our saving grace was Alison our rep from scotland. She has lived on the island for about 10 years and in the winter she teaches at the local school. We arranged the night trip to Corfu town through her and it was great to get out of Coldiz for a night. The food at the apartments was really good and really no complaints. I was going to write to Thomsons about their misleading information on the resort,but whats the point the same people keep going back so it is a good little earner for them. Going to Zante this year where there are shops and things to do.More

My wife and I spent 14 days at these appartments, I cannot find any gripe with the place as Arillas should be renamed Paradise. The Beautiful walk in the morning along the beach, the food and drinks was excellent. The Kaloudis was very clean, modern rooms the staff were very helpful. Now have tv in rooms, Yes I know it was not English stations what more do you want you are holiday in Greece if you want to stay in your room stay at home. The meals at the Kaloudis were very good we also went to Kostas on the beach , Portofinos and drinks at the Horizon and went back to the Kaloudis for the last drink. The greek night was the highlight of the holidays. Recent review says people keep going back and crawling around the owner it is understandable as it a great place to keep coming back to and their can give you a deal if you are unable to book with travel company. Corfu airport was chaotic on a Friday so be prepared to take a sandwich and a drink with you as it can be very expensive. Car Hire be prepared for very bad roads, I rate myself a good driver I just driving with the car in 2nd -3rd gear most of the time as for hair pin bends and big holes in the road.More

This review is for Kaloudis studios in Arillas. We stayed here for 11 nights . returned last night. Rula and all her family run this complex , they are so helpful and friendly. The studios are very clean and typically greek. They have a supermarket on site to stock up on your essentials ... eg. wine !! The sunsets are the best I have seen anywhere. We ate out every night and never had a bad meal,our favourite was Portofino on the seafront. The Ammos bar next door was lovely to sit in and chill with a cocktail or two !! The beach is kept clean and the sea is lovely and shallow,which made it feel like you were walking into a warm bath. All in all a lovely relaxing holiday.More
Kaloudis Apartments and Studios in Dassia
We have spent 11 fabulous days in July in Kaloudis Apartments + Studios in Dassia, Corfu. The premises are impeccable, fully equipped, perfectly situated and the garden is not less gorgeous. This is a true gem and I want to thank Fotini and her mother for a great vacation that we had. It would be very helpful if Trip advisor can separate these two Kaloudis to avoid any misunderstandings.More

Tripadvisor-reviews are running together-2 different villages
Ok all. The pictures and description are for the Kaloudis studio and apartments in Dassia, Corfu. That is the place we stayed this week. Dassia is located on the east side of Corfu, just north of Corfu town. This is run by Fotini Kaloudis. There is no pool or meal service here. However, many of these reviews are for a Kaloudis in the town of Arillas, which is located on the northwest side of the island, run by Billy and Rula, from what the reviews state. This is causing quite a bit of confusion. Tripadvisor, can you please try to fix this problem? And readers, please look carefully. So the Kaloudis in Dassia was wonderful! The gardens are lovely, aircon is not an additional charge, and Fotini is wonderful and gracious. We stayed in the mezzonette, which is a 2 story separate cottage, living, dining, kitchen and half bath down, 2 bedrooms and full bath up. Private front porch, perfect for 2 couples traveling or a family with older children. There are other studios and apartments as well. It is 100 meters to the beach, which is rocky but lovely. Many places to eat and drink on the beach and in the village. Also the big hotels on the beach don't mind a bit if you use their pools- Chandris hotel was our fave pool. All in all, we had a wonderful 5 days.More
