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!

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

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.

A Beautiful Villa with the most fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

This has to be the best villa we have stayed in, and we have stayed in quite a few!

The view from the villa was even better than we had anticipated. The air conditioning was super efficient and you couldn't hear it was on. The beds were very comfortable, the showers were powerful, the sun beds had lovely thick cushions. There was even a wine fridge, Nespresso coffee machine & an enormous fridge freezer that dispensed ice.

The beautiful infinity pool was heated and maintained by Armando who popped in every couple of days to check everything was Ok. He was very friendly and helpful. The villa was very clean on arrival & a cleaner came half way through our weeks stay to change bed linen & towels and to give it a quick clean.

Throughout the booking process Alex, the owner was quick to respond to any queries we had and before arrival he provided us with lots of useful information about the villa, things to do, details of restaurants and supermarkets in the area and lots more! We referred to this daily when deciding what to do & where to eat and were not disappointed. Thank you Alex for making our stay in your beautiful villa so enjoyable.

This was our first visit to Corfu & the villa is located in a beautiful part of the island. It is walking distance to Kalami but it is a steep walk back up the hill! We cannot recommend the villa enough & would love to return one day.

Idyllic villa and location which surpassed our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

I knew when I booked Villa Orlaya it would be amazing but just not how amazing!!

There is so much to say about this beautiful villa with every detail thought of. When you arrive the breathtaking views are just so beautiful, you can't quite believe it! The information provided by the owner Alex is just fantastic from arrival and departure at the airport to recommendations for restaurants and supermarkets and things to visit and do in the local area and beyond. So informative and helpful. All the restaurants we visited were recommendations and all excellent. Also, the response from Alex to every little query or question was immediate and helpful.

It's been said before but the view is just something else. We spent many hours, I'm sure, just saying look at that view and watching the boats come in and out of Kalami Bay. The infinity pool is wonderful and always kept so clean by Armando. We also loved the sonos music system playing whilst we chilled by the pool. The sunbeds are the most comfortable beds I've used in a long time.

The house is wonderfully appointed and a real home from home. Far better than any other villa we have every stayed at.

My daughter and I had the most wonderful time with memories to last us a long time. I cannot recommend it more highly. It's a very special place. Thank you.

A fab property!

  • 5 of 5

Orlaya quite simply ticked all our boxes: an infinity pool, beautifully appointed rooms, stunning location (you will never tire of that view!). Alex (the owner) is both helpful and responsive to even the most minute query, his welcome pack contains all the stuff you need to find the places to eat that suit your budget and make trips around the island.

A beautiful holiday with my daughter and some friends.
