Beautiful, tranquil - a perfect hideaway!
Green Retreat was an absolutely perfect place to stay to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. It is incredibly peaceful, and the garden and outside seating areas are lovely places to just sit, admire the view, listen to the cicadas and while away time relaxing.
The house itself is very small, but very well-equipped and clean and modern. Being there in August, we spent our entire time outside, and the outdoor shower (beautifully refreshing after a day on the beach) and washing-up area mean that you can really enjoy the outside space to its full advantage.
Spatia itself is a very traditional Greek village, with two supermarkets and a café and restaurant, all of which were very good, especially the café and restaurant, and the shops were well-stocked but more expensive than the bigger supermarkets (there is a great, much cheaper one just on the way to Argostoli, only about 10 mins drive away).
George and Dennis could not have been more welcoming, from George's WhatsApp messages before we arrived, answering all the questions I had before our trip, to Dennis' daily (but completely unobtrusive) visits every morning with fresh fruit/oil/vegetables/eggs, we felt very well looked after and cared for. We had no issues at all, but I am sure if we had, George and Dennis would have sorted us out in no time.
I would thoroughly recommend Green Retreat for a relaxing, carefree, tranquil holiday, and Spatia is a perfect place from which to base yourself to visit the whole island. We completely fell in love with Kefalonia, and the people who live there. Thank you.
Thanks very much Daniel!You really have a beautiful family and i hope to accomodate you again.
Excellent holiday rental
Lovely relaxing escape with amazing outdoor space
Thank you George and Dennis for your warm welcome and kind hospitality, we thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day stay in June. The outdoor space is wonderful and we sampled ‘the good life’ when Dennis stopped by with the most delicious freshly picked figs, tomatoes, cucumbers, oranges, lemons etc from his garden, home pressed olive oil and fresh eggs from his chickens.
The villa is simple but adequate and in a quiet spot within walking distance to the small village square, which has a taverna, cafe/bar and a couple of small grocery shops. The local beach also has 2 restaurants, one with a decent bar overlooking the sea. You really need a car to make the most of exploring this magical island, we will be back for sure! Thanks again for making our stay a memorable one. Nikki and Roger
Thank a lot!
Wonderful private retreat
This was a lovely spot just outside the village of Spartia . Wonderful garden and outdoor dining spaces with large BBQ. A great sea view from the balcony .
The house is really well equipped with a big kitchen and lots of space , except the bathroom which is a little small .
The location is superb within a couple of minutes from the village with its mini market , bar and taverna . Few minutes drive to the sandy beach which was great for safe swimming .
Dennis who manages the place was a lovely host . He provided us with an endless supply of tomatoes from his garden and fresh eggs from his chickens .
A very clean , well maintained property and highly recommended.
Thank a lot!
A true Green Retreat!
We absolutely loved our stay, it was exactly what we had hoped for. The little house is simple but the outside space is amazing. If you enjoy a taste of village life, being treated to fresh produce from the farm and sitting out cooking on a real wood fire BBQ looking at the sunset then this is for you. A peaceful spot, totally chilled atmosphere on the edge of a nice village with a great taverna. Great location for what we wanted and will definitely return.
Thank a lot!
Beautiful views, lots of grass to run about, great BBQ and very safe.
We had a fantastic time in Villa Spartia. We travelled with a toddler and this place was perfect for him to run free. We also took advantage of the BBQ. The views are stunning and so close to a lovely little beach. Very good location as only 10 mins from airport. We were given fresh eggs and fruit most days. My son loved the animals in the little farm next door. We can't wait to come back!
Thank a lot!
