Fantastic villa


By Simon on 06-Sep-2020

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.

Best view in Kalami, fantastic host, beautiful villa, wonderful holiday!


By Joanne on 26-Aug-2020

What an amazing place! I stayed here with my husband and 2 older children and we all loved it. The views are just stunning - breathtaking in fact. All the rooms were tastefully decorated, comfortable, clean and stylish. Kitchen had all we needed for our stay including a coffee machine, kettle etc. The pool was perfect for whiling away the days with sun beds, towels and a shaded sitting area. As we stayed during the beginning of reopening after lockdown we weren't sure how things would be, but the owners had followed all protocols and made sure we were comfortable and safe. Kalami itself is a fair distance away as the villa is so high up in the hills, so a car is essential. But we had hired one from the airport so didn't have a problem. Once in Kalami there are a wide range of tavernas and places to eat. There's also boat trips, water sports and so on, so no one can get bored for long. There were two car parks for when you visited the village and we never had a problem finding a space. I have to give a huge mention to Spiros for being a wonderful host from the moment we booked. Always quick to answer any questions, helpful and when we arrived he gave us lots of suggestion for where to eat and day trips. He even stepped in to help when we couldn't get a taxi by calling the taxi company for us! Exceptional service all round. The whole family thought this part of Corfu was just stunning and will be back for sure. A little gem of a place in a jewel of an island. Look forward to returning soon!

Truly special villa


By Emily on 02-Nov-2019

We’ve had a wonderful week at Villa Genna. Spiros was a really welcoming and helpful host and the villa was exactly as described. It’s a well equipped villa with comfy beds and stunning views. The heated pool was fantastic and the kids loved it. Villa genna is situated in a beautiful part of Corfu with lovely beaches within easy reach. You do need to hire a car but there’s loads to see. We definitely plan to return!

Wonderful villa with breathtaking views


By Amy on 25-Oct-2019

We stayed at Villa Genna for 10 days and had a wonderful stay. The house is very well equipped, with everything you need in a self catering property. The outdoor area is amazing with the most incredible views. The location of the villa is fantastic as its in a quiet, beautiful area of Corfu, but with a hire car you can easily visit the local towns such as Kalami and Kassiopi or travel further to Corfu town. We visited mid-October and were blessed with gorgeous weather. Thanks to the owners for their excellent communication and support.

Looking to come back


By Jürgen on 22-Oct-2019

Looking for a holiday home in Corfu, we saw the very attractive homepage of Villa Genna. After the decision to spending two weeks there we appreciated not only the friendliness of the owners Spiros and Alex with their helpful hints i.e. in regard to car hire but also the booking flexibility to not being dependent on a Saturday to Saturday. Having arrived we soon regretted that we only had a two weeks holiday as we could have spent easily a lot of time more. Not only everything was perfect inside the house, but we enjoyed the pool and above all the amazing view a lot. Nevertheless we managed to leave Villa Genna from time to time as there a plenty of things to undertake in the surroundings. We certainly hope to come back to Corfu and then Villa Genna will be our first choice again.

Perfect


By Madelyne on 17-Sep-2019

We have stayed three times at this lovely villa and will return in 2020. Villa Genna is in a perfect position with amazing views. The villa is comfortable, very clean and very well equipped. We have no hesitation in recommending this villa.

Besser geht's nicht.


By Stephanie on 14-Sep-2019

Wir verbrachten 10 wundervolle Tage auf Korfu. Die Villa Genna war perfekt für uns 2 Familien mit jeweils einem Kind. Pool, Ausblick, das extrem saubere und gut ausgestattete Haus und nicht zuletzt Spiros, der Vermieter, übertrafen unsere Erwartungen noch um Längen. Spiros tut das, was er macht mit Herzblut. Bereits im Vorfeld sehr angenehme Konversation per E-Mail, liebevolle Begrüßung mit kalten Getränken und einem kleinen Präsentkorb. Unschlagbare Tipps zu Ausflügen, Adressen, einheimischen Tavernen fernab vom Inseltourismus, die allesamt 5 Sterne verdienen. Jedes zukünftige Ferienhaus anderswo wird es bei uns schwer haben...

Fantastic view,clean well laid out villa


By Gavin on 31-Aug-2019

The owner Spiros was very helpful when we arrived. This Villa is very clean and well laid out and we spent a very happy and relaxing week. I don’t usually bbq but the outside dining area was so perfect that we really enjoyed doing so most nights. The local beaches were a 10 minute drive away with good restaurants. A lovely place. Sad to leave.

Wonderful two weeks in Villa Genna


By Daphne on 24-Aug-2019

Spiros and Alex looked after us so well. A wonderful villa with the most breathtaking view of Kalámi Bay. A real find ! Kalami is lovely along with all the coastal villages along this part of the coast. Wonderful tavernas and restaurants The people are without a doubt some of the most warm and welcoming people we have met on any of our holidays in various parts of the world If you want a relaxing holiday with the most spectacular scenery look no further than a stay in Villa Genna

Wonderful villa with in spectacular location and superb host.


By Jus on 22-Jul-2019

Villa Genna is about as well positioned as it would be possible to imagine. The views over Kalami bay from the bedroom balcony, pool, veranda and outdoor dining table are just spectacular day or night. The villa is also perfectly located in the sweet spot of beaches, villages and bays between Agni and Kassiopi, making for very easy excursions to wonderful spots. Boat hire from the bay in Kalami just below the villa couldn't be easier, and there are several fantastic tavernas and villages within 10-15 minutes drive (or boat ride). So much for the location, the villa itself is spot on. Beautiful pool-with-a-view, outdoor bbq and dining area, well appointed throughout (coffee machine, full cooking & dining equipment etc), and the bedrooms were comfortable each having access to the specacular view from the balcony. Finally, i can't thank Spiros enough for his warmth and generosity as a host, recommending and reserving a restaurant for our first night (we quickly realised the select list of restaurants in his vistitors guidebook was thoughtlyfully chosen), suggesting a great fish shop, a dive excursion with a great school nearby, and even procuring the loan of his fathers guitar for the week when mine had unfortunately been damaged in transit. We were completely smitten with Corfu and Villa Genna and the children were only too happy to suggest coming back. Many thanks to Spiros and his pa.

Outstanding view and personal service


By Olive on 15-Jul-2019

We spent a lovely week at Villa Genna. It is in a great location - a short drive to Kassiopi, Kaloura, Agni and other alluring coves with their waterside tavernas. The view from the house is magnificent - Corfu town in the south, Albania straight ahead, and Kalami Bay below, with Lawrence Durrell’s White House clearly visible .(TIP pack your binoculars for a close-up look at the massive private yachts which moor in the bay below. We had fun looking on-line to find out which billionaire was at play close by each night!) Spiros was a great host. He met us at the airport, despite a late arrival and led us to the house. He popped in with a sweet treat mid-week, and when I lost my watch, he kept up the search and found it a week later. It was also very interesting to talk to him about the island, and about his childhood memories of staying at his grandmother’s stone house next to Villa Genna - real context for our trip.

A* Spiros and Villa Genna are the best!

Villa Genna was faultless. Spiro takes such pride in this beautiful home. It is modern and so comfortable. Spiro offers awesome recommendations and it is obvious that he really cares that you have a wonderful holiday. A beautiful basket of yummy goodies were there when we arrived and some amazing cakes. The pool and views are really beautiful! I would highly recommend this property to others and also the hospitatility of Spiros! ❤

Très jolie villa, dans un emplacement magnifique ! Propre et aménagée avec tout le confort nécessaire. Parfaite pour 6 personnes. La piscine très agréable avec la vue à couper le souffle. Le propriétaire serviable et aimable. Je recommande l’endroit malgré l’accès avec une route de montagne. Le déplacement en vaut la peine. Merci Spiros!

Perfect Early May Holiday


By Ewan on 05-May-2019

We (family of 4 including 5 and 2 year olds) stayed in Villa Genna in early May 2019. The villa was fantastic. The pictures do not do the view justice. We never tired of it. The villa is set high on the hill overlooking Kalami Bay. The road leading up to it is thin, winding with some vertiginous cliffs on one side. If you are staying with kids I’d recommend hiring a car. If you are staying without kids you could walk down to the main road. The pool was excellent and our kids loved swimming in it. Inside the villa we were impressed with the size. The downstairs is entirely open plan and is a large area. Upstairs are 3 large bedrooms. It was the biggest villa we’d stayed in (we have stayed in many villas over the years). I was impressed with the cleanliness of the villa. When we arrived it was spotless and the cleaners arrived midway through our week to clean which was a nice touch. We met Spiros a number of times and I can see why the villa is so popular as he continues to try to find ways to further improve the already excellent villa and service he offers. We also found the villa very well equipped (towels, Netflix, kitchen utensils). A big plus also the heating. It got cold in the evenings but were able to warm the kids room before putting them down to sleep. Would highly recommend and we hope to return again.

Third time - First choice


By Bärbel on 05-May-2019

No doubt: If you are interested in spending a high-level holiday on beautiful Corfu Island, Villa Genna ist the best location to choose. We have been there for the third time. After October & May now in April, which was a little cold this year, but not only inside the villa we felt comfortable anyway. If you would ask us for renting another holiday-villa for making new experiences, we would clearly say no. The reason why: The hosts of Villa Genna are so charming, that they opened our hearts at the first moment we learned to know them; the interior of the villa is very tasteful; and outside you’ll find superb views to Albania and along the coast, a lovely pool to refresh, a big barbecue and a wonderful sitting area, surrounded by all kinds of blue: Blue sea, blue sky, blue pool…(and a Greek flag of course). In combination with the Green of the olive and citrus trees and the golden and warm sunrays, you do not have a chance: You just have to feel good – it is a little as if you were in heaven. (Okay, that might be a bit exaggerated, but it definitely is a little paradise.) It simply is a perfect place - as relaxing as it is inspiring. Villa Genna was our first choice in the past, and it will sure be our first choice in future – the one and only possible place on Corfu for us! Bärbel & Gerd, Cologne

Marvelous Villa with breathtaking view


By Michael on 03-Nov-2018

We had two wonderful weeks in Villa Genna from end of october to the beginning of november. Villa Genna is located nearly at the top of a hill overlooking the bay of Kalami and Kouloura with romantic beaches the mediteranian sea and the coast of Albania. It's definitly one of the very best places for a holiday on corfu island. The villa is in a top condition comfortably furnished with a well-kept garden a wonderful pool and a generous barbecue area. From all bedrooms you have stunnging views over the landscape and the bed are really comfortable. Spiros and his father are marvelous hosts, very kind and extremly helpful. Every three days the housekeeping service changes the bed linen and cleans the complete villa and Spiros father cleans the pool. When we arrived on a sunday evening Spiros welcomed us very friendly and surprised us with filled up fridge and a basked with sweets and food. You definitly can't find a better host than Spiros. Thank you very much. Justina & Michael from Dresden, Germany

Heaven! What a beautiful place to stay.


By Thorsten on 14-Oct-2018

We absolutely loved Villa Genna and spent an amazing october-week at Corfu! Villa Genna is a spectacular location, we found everything that we needed, super comfortable with beautiful interior & exterior design. The rooms were very nice & clean & the bathrooms were great with always hot water. The kitchen was fully equipped. The best part of the villa was the view. It is spectacular, you'll never want to leave the villa!!!! You can spend hours simply watching the ships go by on the ionian sea, while you take lunch beneath the cozy pavilion or drink a cup of coffee (or wine :) next to the pool... Spiros is the most helpful & attentive host we ever had. He warmly welcomes us at the airport & was always ready to help us if we needed something. Thank you for the wine, the bread & the other lovely gifts. The cleaning service cleaned the house and pool, changed the beds & took out the garbage. It was nice to come back home & find everything cleaned. We highly recommend this villa to everyone. A perfect holiday with the most beautiful memories for all of us. Great villa, spectacular views, and wonderful people! Thank you Spiros for a great vacation!

Amazing stay at Villa Genna


By Noel B on 25-Aug-2018

Dear Spiros Thank you for all your kind hospitality enjoyed during our amazing stay at Villa Genna. The views from the villa are stunning - it was wonderful to sit outside having dinner in the evenings whilst looking down on Kalami and the NE coast. We never tired of the view straight over to Albania and then down to Corfu Town as well. The night skies were so clear during our stay that we even located the planet Mars! The surrounding region is beautiful and we had wonderful times swimming in the warm turquoise coves. We mostly dined at the villa (due to the views); however, we did enjoy eating out at the Eucalyptus and Nikolas Taverna. Both served delicious seafood and were very atmospheric. Arriving by boat for an evening meal at Nikolas Taverna is not to be missed! Finally, many thanks to Spiros and Alex for the welcome message and welcome hamper on arrival, the gift of Baklava from Corfu Town and also for your kindness and helpful advice provided throughout our stay. Until we see you again! Joanne, Noel, Daniel, Luke & James (and Reindeer and Bird - the cuddly toys), London, UK

What could be better!


By Gerhard H on 28-Jul-2018

Perfectly located, very well equipped and spacious Villa Genna offers breath-taking views over one of the loveliest Corfu coastal areas, only a few minutes from Kalami, well-known as a temporary home of the English poet Lawrence Durrell and his family in the late forties. Outdoor BBQ, terraces, a stunning pool overlooking the Ionian Sea and the garden with lemon trees, palms and fig trees make it hard to leave the villa and explore the coast. The surrounding infrastructure is perfect, as you find a lot of grocery stores (including fresh fish and meat!) within a 10 minutes ride - and lots of tavernas, from basic Greek to fancy. This outstanding vacation experience is completed by the hospitality of the owners, Spiros and his father Alexander, who had built the house. We had the feeling of leaving friends behind when we left - all of us with a heavy heart. So - what could be better! Gerhard, Sonja and kids (Vienna)

Lovely villa, stunning views!


By Justine N on 21-Jul-2018

We had a wonderful week at Villa Genna, beautiful location with stunning views. Well kept villa and pool, Spiros was so helpful and we loved the Greek pudding, thank you! We watched the moon eclipse from the balcony, stunning! Enjoyed coffee, dinner and relaxing at The White House in Kalami. Loved eating at the taverna in Kouloura Bay. We hired a boat and had a great day motoring up and down the coast, gorgeous weather and sea swimming. Highly recommend.
