View of the back garden leading to the sea

There is a sea-view balcony from every room
with the studio apartment having two very
large balconies with a 300-degree panorama
of the sea and the surrounding countryside.

Gennadi can be reached by walking either
along a pleasant country road or along a
wide, quiet beach. The whole area has
retained its Greek identity with subtle
tourism. It is perfect for many kinds of
holiday, including hillwalking, cycling,
and for those who like the countryside,
with tourist facilities including water
sports close by in Gennadi itself and in
Pefkos and Lindos.

"Lovely villa! Couldn't have asked
for more and our own private beach!!
Hope to come back and will recommend
to friends and family."

"Loved the beach, especially the cool vibe
at Mojito's beach bar! Recommend 'Angelaki's'
on road north out of Gennadi for excellent food."
