Villa Location
This private and stylish villa is set in an elevated position on the edge of the quiet village of Spartia and is only a short drive to the local beach, tavernas, and mini-market with the capital of Argostoli only 20 minutes away.

Location features

Bars and restaurants

There are a few tavernas within Spartia Village or head into Lourdas, 20 minutes' drive away, and dine in the main square in one of the traditional tavernas. Further afield, follow the coast for 40 minutes' by car to Katelios where you can enjoy fresh fish from one of the restaurants overlooking the sea.

Local markets and shopping

Within Spartia there is a village shop and mini market, perfect for topping up on holiday amenities. The nearby capital of Argostoli is definitely worth a visit with a greater choice of traditional and contemporary shops to explore, as well as a number of bakeries and tavernas. In Argostoli harbour you can buy fresh fish from the local fishing boats which bring their catch into the harbour every morning, closely followed by large Loggerhead turtles looking for scraps.


The nearest beach is Spartia Beach, a steep 15 minute walk down the bay with an expanse of fine sand, very popular with the locals and a parking bay behind. To the left of the beach is a small jetty and harbour where local fishermen moor their boats and large turtles can often be seen swimming in the bay. The neighbouring resorts of Lourdas and Livathos are also within easy reach by car and have a choice of fantastic sandy beaches to explore.

Family fun

Lourdas offers boat hire as well as water and jet ski facilities in the summer for those who want more excitement . Alternatively, hire a boat and discover more secluded bays along this pristine coastline.

Places of interest

For something more cultural, the beautiful Monastery of St. Gerasimos - the Patron Saint of the island - is half an hours' drive away. Why not visit Mounda Bay, the nesting ground for the Caretta Caretta turtles? The popular resort of Skala is 40 minutes' drive away with plenty of waterfront restaurants and a beautiful beach. Driving across the mountains to Sami on the east coast is a must for the spectacular scenery, as is a visit to the natural phenomenon that is Melisanni, the lake in the cave. Or visit Mount Ainos, although not for the faint hearted, which provides dramatic views of the unspoilt beauty of Kefalonia.


Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

Activities and things to do
Agios Giorgios Castle
The medieval castle of Agios Georgios is situated near the village of Peratata, on a 320m hill. The castle was built in the 13th century to fortify the island's old capital which was housed here until 1757 AD. The castle owes its name to the large church of Agios Georgios, which is situated in the region.

The castle, along with the island, fell in succession into the hands of the Byzantines, the Franks, the Turks and the Venetians. On 24 December 1500, after a persistent battle with the Venetians, the Spanish and the people of Kefalonia, the castle was liberated from the Turks.

The severe damage to the buildings led to a restoration supervised by the mechanic Tsimaras, which lasted for four years. Until the earthquake in 1636, the castle thrived and housed storage rooms, a hospital, barracks, private residencies and a prison in which the more liberal people of Kefalonia were kept, whom the current conquerors considered dangerous.

The Castle's entire surface area is 16,000 square metres, and the walls are 600 m. long and 1,015 m. high. The three ramparts face Argostoli, the East and Peratata, respectively and includes loopholes, observatories and cannon positions. Inside the Castle, its possible to gaze at the tower called "Old Fortress" as well as part of the walls and underground arche. There is, in addition the throne of the Venetian Lord and a catholic church, where the nobles of Kefalonia were buried.
Glass Bottom Boat
Based in the Southern resort of Skala, "Nautilus" is a specially constructed boat of high standards. Due to these high standards there is little movement in the boat, which is absolutely necessary because of the glass bottom. The possibility to watch the seabed, to view the rocky coast or to cruise the Ionian Sea waters at a speed of up to 30 knots, feeling the breeze and the sea very close will ensure a pleasant cruise.
Agios Gerasimos Monastery
Agios Gerasimos is the patron saint of the island. On its feast day, the monastery is swarming with pilgrims. According to tradition, he was born in Trikala of Korinthia and was a member of the famous Notaras family. He became a monk and spent twelve years in the Holy Land and five years in Zakynthos. He came to Kefalonia in 1560 and stayed in the cave of the same name, south of Argostoli.

Later, he founded the monastery and took residence there until his death on 15 August, 1579. Two years later, on 20 October, 1581, his relics were placed inside the monastery. He was canonized in 1622. At the courtyard, there is a big plane tree and a well, which is said to have been dug by the saint himself. Inside, there is a trap-door where he is said to have spent the greater part of his life. On the 15th of August and the 20th of October, big festivals and processions take place. Many miracles are connected to the saint's relics and icon.
Kefalonia Robola Wine
The Robola wine cooperative winery is located at Kefalonia Island, Ionian Islands, and western Greece. More specific at the plateau of the Community of Omala, in an altitude of 700 metres, in the slopes of the gorgeous and green full Ainos Mountain

In Kefalonia the unique wine, Robola, is grown and produced. A harmonious white wine of high quality, it is one of the most well known wines in Greece (Hellas). Its wonderful balanced taste, strong note and unique white colour are just a few of the qualities which have established its reputation world-wide.The cultivation of this particular grape is known to be really hard work on the slopes of Mountain Ainos, where the soil is poor and stony, and vineyards can be found as high as 800 m.

The winery is open from 9am to 8.30 pm and is well worth a visit.
Loggerhead Turtle Sanctuary
There is a protected nesting site at Kefalonia called Kaminia beach. The sea Turtle Protection Society work hard and long to protect the fascinating creatures when they come in to nest on the beach. The females heave and tug themselves across the beach to find a nesting site digging holes and laying small round eggs. An average nest would have 120 eggs and once they are safely covered with warm sand the female returns to the water. Some females will lay as many as four times during the nesting season and the eggs take about two months to hatch. The baby turtles dig their way out at night and head instinctively for the sea. This natural pattern can be disrupted by noise and lights. Sometimes the body clock in the baby turtles goes away and they pop out during the day. If you see a turtle its best not to touch it as its essential to their survival that they make their own way to the sea. The Marine Turtle Project was set up some years ago to observe and record the nesting female turtles on the beaches near to the villages of Skala and Ratzakli on the south-eastern tip of the island. This project has continued to this day and incorporated a conservation programme to promote the protection of the beaches where these creatures lay their eggs. Just outside Katelios you will find a little old schoolhouse which has been transformed and is now the base for The Katelios Group for the Research and Protection of Marine and Terrestrial Life. The group was founded in 1994 and consists mainly of local people with an interest in the long term future of Kefalonia
