Make a holiday villa in Spartia your home away from home

Kefalonia has a divine mix of beaches that is the desire of every holidaymaker; some sandy, some pebbly, others with towering limestone cliffs. Apart from the coastal paradise there are beautiful mountain landscapes and green expanses which are home to a number of bird and animal species. Small wonder Kefalonia was fought over and ruled by different countries including France and England. The town is also home to a number of interesting buildings from centuries ago and visitors can be sure to get a taste of unique Ionian culture as well. Holiday homes in Spartia are a great place for visitors to put up as they sample the touristic delights of Kefalonia. From there they’ll be able to take in splendid views or the sea and the rest of the town. Recreational facilities such as swimming pools and tennis courts are also provided.

Things to do

-Geological wonders: The underground Lake Melissani is one of the most unique geological wonders one can find anywhere. Imagine floating around in crystal clear blue waters with all the light coming from a hole some metres above your head. The lake is accessed through a tunnel entry into which costs 7 Euros. Couples looking for a romantic experience will find few better sites in Greece than this. Also worth a visit is the Drogarati Cave which boasts stalactites and stalagmites, many of which have disappeared with time.

-Museums: The Archaeological Museum of Argostoli, also known as the Kefalonia Museum, is replete with artefacts dug up from all over the island of Kefalonia which date back to prehistoric times. While viewing the cutlery and items of jewellery that are believed to belong to the 12th century BC visitors will feel transported back in time.

-Ancient buildings: The Italian War Memorial on the way to Argostoli commemorates the fallen Italian soldiers, over 100 of whom were killed by the Germans. Among the ancient churches here, the Church of Evangelistria which was constructed in the 16th century, will be of interest to history buffs. As will be the Lighthouse of Saint Theodoroi also found in Argostoli. It is a unique conical structure propped up by pillars and was built in 1828.

-Boat trips: One of the more exciting ways tourists staying in Spartia holiday homes can spend their day is taking boat trips aboard a traditional wooden boat. The tour usually takes holidaymakers around the Fiscardo locality enabling them to ogle the beautiful coves and is guided by a knowledgeable guide. It also includes a brief snorkelling excursion. Along the way visitors will get to enjoy a nice picnic and cocktails.

-Beaches: Sun-seeking holidaymakers will want to drop by the Antisamos Beach. It is a white pebbly stretch of coastline so it may not be ideal for barefooted promenades. However it is a great place to pull out a lounger and parasol and enjoy the weather. The beachside restaurants and cafes here happily offer patrons sunbeds for free. Tiny fish usually swim under the clear shallow waters here, approaching those who will toss them pieces of bread.

Weather in Spartia

Booking a holiday villa in Spartia in July or August is assuring oneself of basking in temperatures above 30°C. The weather at this time of year is hot and dry and holidaymakers will want to pack a bottle of sunscreen and some headgear. Arriving in Kefalonia in May is not a bad idea as temperatures are a touch more bearable- averaging in the mid-twenties and one won’t have to contend with immense holiday crowds. Autumn is also a great time to visit as temperatures average between 24 and 28°C and there is a bit of rain to temper the heat. More rain falls in winter which sees temperatures in the teens.

Travel to Spartia

To get to Kefalonia holidaymakers will want to book a flight to the Cephalonia International Airport. Seasonal flights and charters aboard most commercial airlines are available to this airport from Manchester, London, Newcastle and other European cities. The airport is just 3.6 miles away and visitors can get to their holiday homes in Spartia by airport taxi. Visitors could also opt to fly into Athens and then connect to Kefalonia. They could also access this island by ferry from the mainland or even Italy.

Although on one side of the complex, we still had good views along the bay, and were close enough to Sami to walk there along the seafront every evening for dinner. The beach outside the complex was not for those who want an organised day at the beach (beach umbrellas, bars etc.), but fine for a quick swim, and the complex does have it's own swimming pool. The staff were helpful and friendly, and it was a great base for exploring the island. We were all very happy with our stay there.

After a busy year we often enjoy a quiet retreat which this villa provided, yet within easy reach of the beautiful harbour of efimia. We enjoyed sun from early morning to late evening and with spectacular golden and red sunrises greeting us each morning. We visited early October so temperatures were a pleasant early to mid 20's, enjoyed from the balcony of the lounge in the morning and from the pool side in the afternoon... With a mild breeze providing welcome respite from the heat of the mid afternoon sun. It also provided an excellent central base in kefalonia to explore other places of interest... But the harbour of efimia with it's restaurants and daily movement of yachts and boats and Greek life was an enjoyable distraction from our busy year! We particularly enjoyed the Paradise Beach restaurant with its friendly service, excellent food, reasonable prices and great views across the sea.... We happen to enjoy a romantic full moon rising one evening from this point! Although it's possible to walk down into efimia we would recommend hiring a car... The cost of hiring a taxi to and from the airport near enough covers this cost and allows exploration of the island too!! We would certainly consider returning to this villa... It was clean, well presented, of modern build and although next to a road winding up the hillside, was very quiet with only the bells of the mountain goats mildly audible in the mornings and early evening! Our host Dionisios, made us feel very welcome and attended any need we had, as well as providing helpful information on local places to see and directions to take! Thank you for a great holiday!!
