We are a family of 4 with boys aged 10 and 3. We have visited beautiful Corfu a few times. It was the heated pool and the stunning view that drew me to Villa Genna. We have stayed at villas previously which didn’t have a heated pool and the water was too cold to use. I checked the weather reports religiously each morning in the days leading up to our holiday. I was convinced that we would be spending a week in the rain as it was late in the season, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. We had amazing sunshine each day with an average temperature of 23 degrees. We were told that we would be able to get into the Villa at 4pm. But I was made up to receive a text from the Villa owner, Spiros, letting me know that the Villa would be ready at 2pm. This meant that we didn’t need to kill time and could drive straight to the villa from the airport. Spiros met us there and gave us a tour. The Villa really is exceptional. It’s decorated to a tastefully high standard and has everything you could want. But the thing that really took my breath away, was the view. It doesn’t matter how many times you see it, it is incredible. By far the best view I’ve seen on the island. I could have spent hours looking at that view but there were two small humans to entertain. This is where the pool comes in. The water temperature was perfect meaning that you would get in without hesitation. I was slightly concerned as my 3 year old is still learning to swim but he was able to stand in the shallow end with the water up to his chest. We practically lived in the pool during our stay which is exactly what I was hoping for. The villa is also really well placed for a short drive to some lovely parts of the island. We ate dinner in Kassiopi a couple of times and spent the day at couple of the local beaches too. I couldn’t believe the wildlife either. I had no idea that Corfu was home to so many amazing creatures. We found lizards, Preying Mantis, a Scorpion and a fire worm. The boys lived exploring the wildlife. The villa was also equipped with Netflix. Now I know that we go on holiday to get away from it all and experience the local culture, but trust me. Having Netflix available with 2 young children was a God send. It meant that they could relax in the evenings in front of the TV which then allowed us to relax too. TV is usually pretty rubbish on foreign holidays so this was a real bonus. We were able to relax and enjoy ourselves largely down to the Villa owner, Spiros. He made us feel very welcome and had a great knowledge of all things Corfu. Nothing was too much trouble and he was perfectly attentive and always on the end of the phone for any questions. If you are lucky enough to be able to book Villa Genna then do not hesitate. I can assure you, you will not be disappointed.
Our enquiry for Villa Genna was sort of "last minute" as we were unsure about Covid19 and restrictions returning to UK. From the moment we made our first enquiry it was clear that we would be well looked after. Nothing was too much for Spiros and his attention to detail and his availabilty were exceptional. The villa was even better than described - immaculate, professionally cleaned, light, bright, modern and well equipped. Child friendly with high chairs, baby bath etc and safe for a little toddler. There are many outside seating and eating areas, all of which take advantage of the stunning views, including night views with the twinkling lights of Corfu Town in the distance. The local area provides lovely beaches with a choice of tavernas and the sea at this time of the year was perfect. Thank you Spiros - we will be back
Visited Corfu And Villa Genna in Sept 2020. On arrival we were welcomed by Spiros who showed us around the villa and recommended a number of places to eat and visit. He is a great host and was available throughout via WhatsApp if we had any questions with replies quicker than anyone would expect. The villa is open plan downstairs offering plenty of room along with a well equipped kitchen. Two fridge freezers (ice blocks provided which was handy), a nice coffee pod machine (a few pods provided but a good tip is take a box with you), microwave and a good oven and hob, toaster, kettle etc so nothing missing. The lounge has two comfy sofas and satellite tv with Netflix so something for everyone. Upstairs has been modernised so all three rooms are very nicely decorated. Master has an en suit with the other double and twin sharing a nice bathroom. All three rooms share a long balcony offering the best views anywhere in the area. Morning coffee on the balcony was a daily routine. Outside is a great pool with room to sit and/or sun bath again with the fantastic view. Out front is another really nice seating area with shade and side nets to avoid being bitten at night. A BBQ adds a great finishing touch. Plenty of space to park. The villa is high up on the hill side and the drive up is quite steep at times however, you don’t get a view like you do by being on the beach. It really is fantastic (see pics). The area is very laid back with Kalami town and beach being quite basic which we loved. Everyone is friendly and helpful with prices more than reasonable (meal for six adults with drinks was c100-140 euros). Local supermarket is basic but has enough for breakfast and light lunches. If you intend eating in at night I suggest a big shop further out of Kalami or use the available chef offered by Spiros (we didn’t take up the offer so can’t comment on price or quality). Recommendations: all restaurants on the beach front (we didn’t try the White House), Boat hire (great full day out to explore all the coves and beaches). Tip: book the restaurants in advance - all the numbers are available at the villa. Overall the villa and its location is perfect. We tend not to go back to the same place for our holidays however, we would return here with family or friends. Pictures: the view from the villa, the view again with the boat jetty circled (Only a 10 min drive) and the friendly villa cat.
