About Spiros

Experience family Villa holidays with a personal touch and great local support, something that as you know is rare these days... Villa Genna is nested in Vigla a place ready to charm you with its unexploited natural beauty and grand views. I spend many summers in this blessed place when younger. After returning from UK I made the decision to independently manage this family Villa and offer our guests great holidays!

My family and I, are constantly improving Villa Genna's holiday experience, every year our many new & returned guests come to an even better home away from home.

If you wonder what the villa's name 'Genna' means, it’s a Maltese word for 'heaven', a name that we believe it reflects the beauty and the serenity of the Villa.

What makes this villa unique

- This is a very unique place to be... the views you will experience from this Villa are simply spectacular.

- This house is very Family friendly, built with children safety in mind and large spaces for kids to play.

- This home is all about location. Private and at the same time you are not far away from anything... Beautiful beaches, places of interest, restaurant and activities are at close driving distances.

- An all year round holiday destination, Villa Genna offers all the comforts for an unforgettable holiday experience throughout the year.

A stellar view in a magical setting

  • 5 of 5

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.

What a priviledge to stay in this beautuful villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa, its hillside location and the stunning panoramic views exceeded our expectations. The booking and taking payment was very simple. We were met on the first day by the owners, Spiros and his father who made us feel very welcome and were always contactable to help with any questions about the villa, local services and places of interest to go. This spacious villa was immaculate inside and out. This is our third year in a staying in the north east coastal area of Corfu and will definitely be back next year. We cannot recommend Villa Gemma highly enough. Simply brilliant!

Quiet villa with a splendid view

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at Villa Genna. It was beautiful, spacious and very clean. And the location and view is magic - the photos are not lying! When travelling with three teenagers a speedy wi-fi is also a necessity... and Villa Genna provided that, too :)

Thanks to Spiros and his falmily for being so helpful and welcoming! We were sad to leave, but we hope to be back some day.

The closest place to Villa Genna is Kalami beach. This was the home of Lawrence Durrell in 1939, the famous 'White House' near the beach... Kalami is a pebble beach with deep blue and green coloured sea with fabulous restaurants, mini-markets / grocery, water sports and boat hire.

On the next cove you will discover one of the most painted places in the island of Corfu, a place where time has stopped... Kouloura is a traditional fishing port with the famous fish taverna and the old church of St. Nicolas.

Next stop Kerasia pebble beach... A beautiful spot surrounded by olive trees with a single taverna. Rothschild family owns a holiday villa there visited frequently by Prince Charles of England.

Further to the North make a stop at the Popular Kassiopi Village with its many restaurant choices of local and Italian cuisine. Kassiopi has a busy nightlife during the summer season with a variety of bars, pubs and shops.

At 18 km distance you can also find Acharavi Village with an amazing waterpark, restaurants, bars, banks and shops.

Love Scuba Diving or you just want to try it for the first time? The north eastern part of Corfu Island offers some of the best and most interesting scuba diving spots in Greece including a variety of reefs, wrecks and caves.

Our location in Vigla is close to many beautiful hiking routes. An amazing opportunity to explore the ancient paths in the southern slopes of mount Pantokrator.
