Welcome to Villa Orlaya, our much loved 'heaven on earth' home from home. We have decorated & equipped this villa over & beyond what is normally expected in a holiday home. Featuring blue & white decor throughout; we have given our attention to every single detail. With a young family of our own, there is also provisional for little ones; a cot, monitor, stair gate, Bumbo seat and high-chair. There are several outside spaces, a beautiful BBQ area with stone gazebo, two ground-floor patio areas & surrounding pool areas for loungers. Stairs to the side of the villa lead to another private patio area with a glass table & four chairs. All the bedrooms have balconies off them with incredible views and A/C in every room.

Excellent villa in stunning setting on Corfu!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice villa with a 'at home' feeling. We spend our lazy afternoons in and at the swimming pool enjoying the views. We also rented a boat in Agni which is a really nice way to explore the north part of the island as well as enjoy some of the nice tavernas in the various bays

Beautiful villa in a perfect spot.

  • 5 of 5

Very helpful owner and the comprehensive information provided for the villa was very useful.

The house itself is in an ideal spot with great views. It is well equipped with everything you need for an enjoyable holiday, the thoughtful owners really seem to have thought of everything! The fly screens were a real bonus and for once in Greece we slept in a comfortable bed (we find most Greek mattresses to be rather 'rock like'!).

Great loungers too and glass balcony made the most of the lovely views. Armando and Nurtila who look after the property are also very friendly, helpful and informative, real assets to the property. Overall one of the best villas we have stayed in.

Mesmerising Views

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned after a wonderful fortnight in Villa Orlaya. The villa and pool are exceptionally clean and well looked after. Armando and his wife were extremely helpful during our stay and kept the pool and villa clean - we even had our own Villa Orlaya towels! The view is mesmerising and on a clear day can see Albania and Corfu Town. Watching the boats and cruise ships go by was wonderful. Even though we stayed out of season there were some restaurants and boat hire places open. The weather was superb for the whole 14 days. We would highly recommend this villa to anyone thinking of a 'get away' from it all holiday. We didn't want to leave and I am sure we will be booking again. North East Corfu with all the coves and bays to explore is really pretty.

Incredible villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful break at Villa Orlaya. It's a stunning villa perched on the hills above some of the most beautiful views of the med I have ever seen. The villa is beautifully decorated, comfortable and has everything you could want. There are a couple of different spots around the villa to enjoy lunches and dinners and take in the gorgeous surroundings.

On arriving at the villa the children launched themselves straight into the amazing infinity pool while we stood and took in the magnificent panoramic views of the sparkling sea, boats, lovely little coves and across to Albania.

We hired a little boat for 2 days to explore all the coves and tied up to the numerous little jetties offered by the local tavernas to enjoy the fresh fish and take in the atmosphere. Our children spent most of the week fishing and crabbing from the jetties and off the back of the boat giving us time to enjoy the delicious food and local wine in the many greek tavernas dotted around this area. The restaurant staff were all so helpful with tying up the boat as we came in to the jetty and were wonderfully child friendly, giving our boys bread to fish with and tweaking adult dishes form their menu to their tastes.

Alex and Siobhan were super helpful and gave us fantastic recommendations for boat hire, restaurants, shopping with great directions etc.

We booked up again for next year before we left!

We have rented many fabulous properties through owners direct but this one is something else! The villa itself is fantastic, with everything you could possibly need or want from your stay. Everything is of such a high standard, including all the outdoor furniture which we find often gets forgotten, and the Sonos sound system and nespresso coffee machine just made it perfect. What can we say about the pool other than - wow! It is kept beautifully clean by Armando and is truly spectacular. Deep enough to swim and have fun whilst also being a great spot for relaxing. Although the villa itself is perfect the view is even better! From the infinity pool and every outside area, the view is breathtaking, constantly changing with the boats coming and going (we loved using the binoculars provided to check them out!) We didn't need any other entertainment as everyday was different. Being high up in the hillside has many advantages - quiet and secluded, not overlooked at all and fabulous views however it does mean the trip to the beach is more challenging if walking. We loved scrambling down the hillside path (you can stick to the road which is easier but further) and steps to the beach and tavernas and back again but others may need to rely on using a car - be prepared for this - it certainly won't spoil the holiday. Kalami beach, with its pebbles and crystal clear water, tavernas and water sports is lovely and Kaloura harbour is so beautiful and within easy reach. A definite must as far as we are concerned is hiring a boat (we used Agni boats) to explore the coast. Our children loved looking for places to jump off, snorkel and swim and we found lots of fabulous tavernas with jetties for you to moor and eat at the edge of the sea. This certainly added to our holiday and we felt we saw more of the area without having to drive along the windy roads.

Everything has been thought of by Alex and we are very thankful to have had the opportunity to spend time in such a fantastic place. Our only dilemma now is how we can find somewhere as perfect for future holidays as we have been truly spoilt.
