Spartia Villas

Spartia, Kefalonia Area Guide

Area Guide: Spartia 

Do you love character-filled villages? Like to stay away from the crowds? The small, white-washed village of Spartia is a great base for your Kefalonia villa holiday. Staying relatively quiet and unassuming, the village is well off the beaten track for most tourists meaning that you can enjoy the few tavernas and coffee shops and do your shopping in the mini markets without crowds even in the height of summer.

Set in a fertile landscape of lemon trees and olive groves, and with a backdrop of pine-clad slopes of Mt Aenos, Spartia overlooks the absolutely stunning Liakas peninsula, or Cape Liakas, which is where most of our villas are located.  It’s about a half hour walk through paths and lanes or a couple of minutes’ drive from our villas to the village itself. 

How to get there? Spartia village is located 12 kilometres southeast of Argostoli. It takes approximately 20 minutes by taxi.
