About Spiros

After completing my studies in UK I returned to my home island Corfu taking over the management of Villa Genna together with the help of my father and the rest of the family. Since I was a young child I spend a lot of time exploring the surrounding areas of NE Corfu a place that always charmed me with its unexploited natural beauty and grand views. The villa's name, 'Genna', is the Maltese word for 'heaven', a name that I truly believe that reflects the beauty and the serenity of the Villa. Focusing on quality and by constantly improving Villa Genna's holiday experience, me and my family strive to provide our guests only with the best Corfiot hospitality has to offer.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Genna offers probably the best Views in the area.

A Family friendly Villa built with children safety in mind.

An ideal location offering privacy and at the same time numerous beaches and places to visit at a close distance.

A perfect winter getaway destination: Villa Genna offers all the comforts for an unforgettable winter holiday experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks a lot for making our holidays in your beautiful Villa the most amazing time during this summer 2012! Everything was great! Especially the view, the pool, the barbeque area, etc, etc...

Views are Breathtaking !

  • 5 of 5

Villa Genna is an excellent place for relaxing, unwinding and soaking up the beauty of Corfu. Our family of 3 generations stayed for 10 nights at the end of October and Villa Genna served us perfectly. From booking process with Spiros, who also met us at arrival at Airport and escorted us to Villa, regular visits from Alex to keep the pool sparkling and Corfiot delicious treats, we felt like we were truly welcome. Plenty of space for dining alfresco or inside when the weather was not so great. All 3 bedrooms lead out to a large balcony where the sunrise can be enjoyed by all. Must be the best view in Corfu, sat around the pool on a sunny day. Sheer Bliss !! Thank you so much.

A Little Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

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!

Secluded, super-relaxing holiday in NE Corfu

  • 5 of 5

Stunning, secluded, clean villa with fabulous views and facilities in a beautiful, unspoilt part of Corfu. It was our first visit to Corfu and we loved it.

The villa is exactly as described and pictured, with amazing views across Kalami Bay and to Albania. The weather was very hot and sunny. The property is well maintained and clean. Indeed a mid-week clean was provided as well as the end of stay cleaning.

Spiros is a pleasure to deal with: prompt replies to emails, he met us at the airport, we followed him back to the villa and then he gave us helpful advice about where to visit and the best times to go. It was fantastic customer service.

I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to a friend or relative and have already done so. A car is necessary to make the most of seeing the lovely area and the villa is situated high up in the mountains (hence the amazing view), accessed by a mountain road with about 9-10 hairpin bends. There are some lovely walks from the villa.

During our stay we hired a boat for the day from White House boats in Kalami Bay - again brilliant customer service. We had fabulous meals out, our favourites were at the White House restaurant in Kalami Bay and at the Panorama Restaurant in Sidari, Corfu's sunset beach, which is well worth a visit.

All in all, a lovely relaxing holiday in a fabulous place.

Great villa with a superb view.

  • 5 of 5

On arrival at Villa Genna we were given a warm welcome by Spiros and

shown round the very comfortable villa, with it's well equipped kitchen, cosy lounge area and three lovely air conditoned bedrooms. The pool area has views down to Kalami, across to Albania and back towards Corfu town that I can only describe as breathtaking. After a meal at one of the nice restaurants in Kalami or other nearby bays, it was lovely to sit out on the balcony at Villa Genna with a glass of something cool watching lights below or over in Corfu town.

We hope to return soon.

A beautiful week in Corfu

  • 4 of 5

We were very kindly greeted by Spiros (the owner of the villa) at the airport upon arrival and he continued to be extremely helpful throughout our stay in Corfu. Villa Genna was absolutely beautiful, set in the serene hills of the North East and just a short drive to the idyllic Kalami and Agni beaches. The view from the villa certainly did not disappoint, boasting breathtaking ocean scenery. If we had one piece of constructive criticism however it would be to adjust the estimated travel times from the villa to various recommended locations as it took rather a lot longer than we had planned for. Overall, it was a fantastic trip and we would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the quieter, less touristy part of Corfu!

Amazing views from a wonderful villa.

We had a relaxing time on our 11 day holiday at Villa Genna. We love this part of Corfu and thought the panoramic views of the island from the villa were just amazing. Spiros and Alex were great hosts and made us feel so welcome, they were very helpful with their recommendations too. A great holiday !!
