As soon as you get to Villa Genna you fall in love. The Villa is beautiful and has been created with amazing attention to detail. The rooms are well laid out and really nicely furnished. The pool area is lovely with breathtaking views and I particularly appreciated the gate to the area that could be closed to help keep my 2 year old safe.
A short drive will take to you all the local shops, beaches, harbour and restaurants and it's quiet enough to be relaxing but busy enough to keep everyone entertained. With a toddler in the mix we didn't strike out much on foot but the surrounding area looks greats for exploring.
Highly recommend and fully intend to return.
Huge thanks to Spiros and family for being such great hosts
We love Greece and we love to make holidays in beautiful villas.
We have seen many of them - all over the greek Island. And no doubt: Villa Genna was the best we ever had. And it probably is the best Greece or at least Corfu has to offer - in views, in comfort and in spirit.
Without any doubt Villa Genna is a very high standard villa with extraordinary, breathtaking views down to the bay of Kalami and over to Albania; with tasteful interior, a wonderful refreshing pool, inviting terraces and lots of plants around – especially the lemon trees. But, and that ist the most important thing – Villa Genna offers you much more: It makes you feel a very special spirit. In every stone of the house and the surrounding, in every tree and flower you can sense the love and also effort with which it came into being. Until today you see and feel the love with which the owner Spiros and his father Alex, who built this place, still take care of it. The Villa breathes peace and harmony, and if you are sitting somewhere in the shadow, looking down to the calm sea with ships looking like toys cruising, you’ll feel a deep understanding for all that is really important in life (or is not). And if you try to describe the place, the result is always the same: Villa Genna is absolutely the best - and much more than this.

We had just had a baby and this place was a perfect family retreat. The photographs really cannot do the views justice; it was a great place to wake up every day, looking out over the Ioanian. Some of the best sunrises I had ever seen. Spiros was really helpful, giving us the number of his personal paediatrician when our baby got ill. Highly recommended!
This is a superb villa with the most extraordinary views down to several of the most beautiful little bays in Corfu and across the Ionian to the mountains of Albania and Epirus beyond. It is hard to do justice to the enchantment of the setting in pictures. You really have to be there. The villa itself is very attractive and spacious and beautifully set out on its little cliff edge above the olive and pine groves. The swimming pool is elegantly set to the side of the house, framed by lemon trees and palms. The owner of the villa Spiros provides immaculate service, including a very generous assortment of food and wine on your arrival. The cleaning is done regularly and to an excellent standard. Everything that's needed is provided. You can walk down the steep slope through little goat tracks to the beach at Kalami -- it takes about forty to fifty minutes. Otherwise, the road up and down is twisty and dramatic -- with stunning views at every bend. Kalami and the other little bays scattered around within a few kilometres are all perfect for sunbathing and swimming -- and leisurely lunches at the many tavernas. You can walk along a path rising above the rocks from one to the other -- or hire a little boat to spend days moving from one to the other. The capital of Corfu is well worth visiting -- as are the hills and mountains behind and beyond the villa. On the other, western side of the island, the sea is much wilder and the coves steeper, barer and more spectacular. Palaeokastrista is worth spending time in - we took a boat to visit the caves in roiling waters -- a very big contrast to the serenity of the sea in Kalami. I would recommend the villa to anyone -- families, couples, friends. It is fantastic value for the price -- the warmth of the welcome from Sprios a match for the wonder of the setting.
so friendly owner, so much hospitality, we had a great time in a wonderful clean and well maintainded Villa
The villa is located in what seemed to us the quiet part of the Corfu island, not far from the Kalami pebble beach. Some sharp turns are necessary to reach the villa, but this allows the beautiful view and the calm of the villa.
Spiros and his father provide exceptional customer service, always very eager to help.
Spiros guided us to the villa on the 1st day, and we were very happy to find some food, together with water and wine, when arriving late on this 1st day.
The house is very clean and very well maintained. The mosquito nets are very practical and allow to open the windows as much as you wish. The only thing we had “problems” with were the wasps, coming each time we were trying to have a meal outside (however, not any problem at the swimming pool).
Spiros gave us all the needed recommendations for supermarkets, restaurants, etc. Many of them are located in Kassiopi, at 10-15 minutes’ drive from the house. (If you come with teenagers like we did, do not miss the "Square" burger house in Kassiopi).
And do not miss the Sunset at the well-named "Sunset beach" in Logas / Peroulades on the western coast of Corfu.
I would definitely recommend this villa for a stay in Corfu.
Villa Genna is a stunning villa situated on a hillside above the beautiful bay of Kalami with views to die for. Even with great photos to promote the villa and the surrounding area I cannot express how wonderful they are in reality. Dealing with Spiros was an absolute pleasure and he was so helpful during the booking process and during our stay. He even meets you at the airport and guides you to the villa! The villa itself has everything you could possibly need and is a real home from home. The pool area is gorgeous and the shady seating area a lovely retreat from the midday sun. There are many lovely places to see and things to do and hiring a car is a must in order to see more of this beautiful island. I would like to thank Spiros for a wonderful stay in his fabulous villa. Hope to be back in the future.
