Spartia is a quaint village, blessed with charm, character and charisma. The village has a couple of of tavernas and two small grocery stores.
As you leave the village on the beach road, a narrow farm track leads you through an area of olive groves to the splendid Villa Minos, an exceptionally comfortable and well furnished home.
A number of striking features materialise as you approach. Bold colours that really make the house stand out – yellow ochre painted walls contrast brightly with the rich burgundy tones of the louvred shutters. On arrival the eye is drawn to the stunning, vibrant hues of the surrounding landscape. Clear blue sky, deep blue seas, sparkling clear water in the swimming pool, rich, green rural tranquillity and the dramatic, craggy back-drop of Kefalonia’s Mount Aenos.
The large inviting swimming pool is surrounded by a wide paved terrace which is both secluded and open to the amazing views. The front of the house has a delightful shaded “wrap around” veranda, ideal for “alfresco” living and afternoon naps on a sun lounger!
The style and design of the interior is an eclectic blend of modern comfort with traditional materials such as hardwood, chiselled stone, marble and wrought iron. The spacious, open-plan lounge and dining area has large sliding doors that allow the light and view to flood in. A beautiful custom made hardwood kitchen is equipped to satisfy the most discerning chef, or equally to provide bacon sandwiches for a morning after the night before.
Adjacent to the lounge is an attractive bedroom, with direct access to the terrace and swimming pool, which is handy for anyone who enjoys a quick dip in the pool before breakfast. An attractive marble staircase leads up to a landing with a view! Doors and windows lead straight out onto the wide sun terrace that adorns the front of the building, as do the two bedrooms on the first floor. Both of these have their own private balconies as well as en-suite bathrooms. The fourth bedroom is a discreet annex, set amidst the vineyard, approximately 40 meters from the main house. Self contained, with its own en-suite bathroom tea kitchen, and patio with the same delightful views, it can double as the perfect 'honeymoon suite'.
