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.

One of 2 villa's - both almost identical - completely secluded on their own 800m down a dirt road. Directions provided are a bit dodgy - so not easy to find at night. (Phivos you should mention the Bakery and the Garages on the main road as points of reference and where to turn off). Great welcome pack provided and the place was spotless when we arrived. Really good aircon was a saviour at night. Just a fabulous spot with a view to die for. Thank you Vila Lito

We decided to go ahead and book as it had all the elements we were looking for to make a good holiday. The owners Mick and Maria were excellent from the very beginning by keeping in touch with us either by email or phone. Mick organised a scooter for us and took us down to collect it after we had time to check out - what I liked to call the bungalow. Half an hour previous to this he had collected us from the airport. Great service. Cottage Hestia is exceptionally clean, plenty of towels, constant hot water, plenty of space, lots of storage and coat hangers. Very airy too! The single beds were amazingly comfortable. You also have your own little balcony but are more than welcome to use the sunny back garden. Some lovely little touches there as well. Mick and Maria are definitely in the right trade as they are both dedicated to 'you' making the most of your time there in the cottage and on the island. Lot's of fascinating stories about the most lovely idyllic village, the history behind it, where to eat etc. Equally, if you want to do your own thing and just come and go they are not intrusive whatsoever. They just want to know you are happy. I could go on and on, but in short, I think you would be hard pressed to find such accommodation at such a good price whatever the season. We knew on the second day that we would be returning, and anyone that knows me, knows that my bucket list is vast...so yes, we will be returning to see the bluest of seas and eat the lovely Greek food, but mostly the lovely couple who are Mick and Maria - great hosts. Thank you both - you have it spot on. Don''t change a thing. Wendy and Mick
