Villa in Arillas, Corfu - Very Private And Quiet Location In An Olive Grove, 5 Minutes Drive To Arillas Beach
What makes this Villa unique
The main reason you should choose Olive Retreat over other similar properties is the high standard of comfort, privacy and the views. It commands a spectacular outlook of the Ionian Sea and the island of Othoni and Mathraki. Olive Retreat sits back from a very quiet and almost unused road with the pool set down below the road level. This gives you complete privacy and seclusion whilst only being a 5 minute drive to the busy towns of Arillas and Sidari. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed with your choice.

Beautiful villa with every amenity you could need and amazing views
We had a fantastic time staying at this villa. It has everything you need, especially in the kitchen, which has a wonderful walk-in fridge. The views from the veranda at the back are amazing, and there are also great views from the front into the opposite valley. There's loads of space around the pool which gets the sun all day. The road up isn't the best, but it's worth it. It's quiet and peaceful and a real escape.
We loved our stay, the house is amazing, comfortable and well designed.
Maxine and Simon were most helpful and gave excelent tips.
Peaceful and relaxing
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 'Robin's Nest': clean, very well presented and equipped, lovely pool, wonderful views and Maxine, Simon and their team could not have been more helpful or accommodating. We are already planning our return...
Spacious well equipped, modern villa. Fantastic views, large pool
We have been staying in villas for about 12 years and this is probably the nicest one yet. Spacious, uncluttered yet well equipped. Showers excellent, bathrooms modern and beds comfortable. We were looked after brilliantly by Maxine (who is English) without being over fussed. Whether you would consider the villa secluded and private or remote, depends on your viewpoint. The villa is about 5 minutes along a bumpy unmade road. For us the views from the villa were well worth it! Especially the sunset from the balconies. Anyway there is another villa behind some trees and Maxine lives only a mile or so away.
The pool and terraces, as with the rest of the villa are excellently kept and well equipped.
We had a great holiday and will definitely return to this beautiful area of unspoilt Corfu.
