Peace at last
A ‘home from home’ holiday town not your thing? Then Spartia may be right up your street. This unspoilt village has all the advantages of being away from the crowds whilst near enough to go out and play if the mood takes you. And with so much to do on the island of Kefalonia, you’ll never be short of the opportunity to explore what Greece has to offer.
Watching the tide roll away
The beach here is perfect for passing the afternoon with a cold drink and a good book. Set against a shock of beautiful white cliffs it acts a great suntrap for building up the tan and also keeps it pretty private. Whilst here you won’t find all the volleyball nets and jet skis of the commercial beaches, there’s a sailing and windsurfing centre for those wanting to try their hand at something new.
Spartia harks back to simpler times and its laid back atmosphere is infectious. You can easily spend hours meandering through the stream of craft shops and even longer over mealtimes. The Greeks – rightly so – believe food should be savoured and so don’t rush when it comes to restaurants. Enjoy the local dishes, guzzle the island’s wine and partake in some people watching. In other words, lose track of time and relax.
Of course, there’s far more to Kefalonia than you can find in Spartia alone, and so be sure to get out and about; take a trip to the impressive Drogati caves or take a walk on the wild side around crystal clear Lake Melessani. The island has some excellent hiking areas, covered with olive trees, rockeries and lush greenery, so grab your walking boots and see where your feet take you. For a venture to busier fields, a visit to the nearby town of Lassi provides plenty of activity and a taste of Greek nightlife.
