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.
We enjoyed a superb week in Villa Genna. The villa is just as shown in the photographs (yes..it really is that stunning !) Contact with Spiros from first email to cheery goodbye was warm, friendly, efficient ,and easy. Much effort has been taken to equip the villa with everything you could possibly need for a great relaxing holiday.
The villa is positioned high above Kalami Bay. Kalami itself is a beautiful quiet resort with crystal clear sea ,ideal for swimming and snorkelling. There are plenty of Tavernas to choose from, boat hire ,and water taxi to nearby Agni Bay.
We had a superb week here and would definitely highly recommend Villa Genna. We cannot wait to return.
Once again we return to Villa Genna. This lovely secluded villa overlooks Kalami and has spectacular views to Albania, to Corfu town and beyond. The villa is private, not overlooked and set well back from the lane which has little traffic. Spiros and his family are friendly, attentive and helpful without being intrusive. They provide an unusual personal touch from the booking process through to departure, which is perhaps a refreshing contrast to some of the larger villa companies. We have no hesitation in recommending Villa Genna to the more discerning holiday maker!
