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.

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.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed your first visit in Corfu, the great location and views of our holiday Villa! Kalami beach is such a great and convenient place to experience good food and activities minutes way from Villa Genna! not to mention it was home of the Durrells during their time in Corfu! Again thank you for choosing our Villa for your summer holidays and hope to be able to welcome you once again in the future!

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!
