What's Spartia Like
Spartia is a small village a few miles south east of the airport in Kefalonia, that journey should take you just under 15 minutes in the car. It’s a little further to the capital Argostoli but only by a couple of minutes.
It’s not one of the more popular resorts and therefore hasn’t suffered from over population of tourists or been spoiled by loads of tourist amenities meaning it has more of a Greek feel to it than the likes of Lassi.
Although Spartia is quite a small village it’s surrounding areas are sprawling, there’s little pockets of buildings dotted about all over this region of Kefalonia, most of which are residential houses but some are hotels, guest houses and villas to rent.
The main village centre is where you’ll find a small square with a taverna, church and a shop, there isn’t much else here but that’s what’s so charming about the place, it’s ideal for a calm relaxed break away from the crowds of the main tourist hot-spots or to wander around on a day trip and take in the authentic Greek way of life.
The nightlife in Spartia is, as you might expect, really low key. There’s no clubs, late night bars, karaoke or anything like that. In fact there’s only a couple of places for an evening meal in the main village and a handful more if you count those down by the beach and in the surrounding areas.
What to do around Spartia
The main section of Spartia isn’t on the beach but there are a number of beaches nearby like Ammes beach, Agios Thomas beach or Trapezaki beach so you can take your pick from those or travel round the coast and find somewhere secluded to have to yourself.
Also nearby are the villages of Svoranata, Karavados and Lourdas as well as the castle of Saint George which has a couple of good tavernas just outside so it’s the perfect place to base yourself or for a nice day out away from the main crowds.
