About the property

Villa in Arillas, Corfu - Very Private And Quiet Location In An Olive Grove, 5 Minutes Drive To Arillas Beach

Olive Retreat was built just a few years ago to the highest UK standards. It provides spacious and comfortable accommodation. The pool is secluded, boasting lovely views down to the distant Ionian Sea. All the comforts of home are here in a delightful and private setting, providing total relaxation for you and your family and friends. Every room has a balcony facing West, catching the sunsets and spectacular views. If you want privacy, peace and quiet and a fabulous pool to catch the sun's rays, this is the place for you. You are totally secluded and the nearest neighbour is over 120 mts away.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Spacious well equipped, modern villa. Fantastic views, large pool

  • 5 of 5

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.

Special interest holidays:

We have contacts to several art and craft centres on Corfu. Yoga, walking tours, painting, cycling, beauty spa treatments and cookery classes can all be arranged if required. Also check out Corfu Rock for your budding rock star youngsters (12-16 years)


The small seaside resort of Arillas is a 5 minute drive from Robin's Nest. Arillas has a long, sandy beach with a shallow drop off, making it very suitable for youngsters. It has several shops, bars and restaurants. 10 Minutes in the other direction, is the bustling town of Sidari which boasts many amenities, supermarkets, shops, clubs, bars, restaurants and a fine sandy beach. Close by is Canal D'Amour which is worth a visit and the hilly countryside around the villa is an ideal walking area.


Flights to Corfu (CFU) are regular and frequent in the summer months, May-October. Easyjet start earlier, normally end of March from many UK airports You can fly year-round via Athens with a twice daily connection to Corfu with Aegean and Olympic Airlines. Robin's Nest is about 50-55 minutes by car from the airport at Kerkyra.(Corfu) Ferry boats go from Italy: Venice, Ancona, Bari and Brindisi (either direct or via Igoumenitsa for those wishing to drive. Corfu port is about 45 mins from villa.


Arillas and Sidari are about 5km in opposite directions form Robin's Nest. The capital city of Corfu, confusingly called Corfu Town , is 55 minutes away. It is a cosmopolitan city with a long and varied history. The architecture is influenced by the Venetians who governed the island for many years. Thursday night is late night shopping so a visit is recommended, taking in the evening sights and a special meal in one of the many restaurants in the city, from MacDonalds to a gourmet dinner.

Further Details:

Arillas is blessed with a excellent Doctor who will visit the villa if need be. There is a Public medical/health centre 15 mins drive away in the village of Agros and the main hospital is 40 mins close to Corfu town.

The town of Acharavi (20 mins drive)has a bank, exchange is available in many places with in the resorts.
