Spartia

 
spartia kefalonia

Spartia village is a pretty tradition sleepy Greek village which sits on a hillside above the beach. The village has pretty whitewashed houses with an abundance of attractive plants and colourful flowers decorate the gardens The village has a small village square surrounded with a few tavernas and a small shop close by. Spartia has a large church which seems to dominate the village. This quaint little village enjoys several wonderful tavernas, cafes and a mini-market.
Kefalonia's more lively resort of Lassi is close to hand if you would like to see a little more nightlife.
The area around the village is very fertile with copious amounts of olive groves, grapevines, and fruit trees .Most holiday accommodation is set amongst the pretty natural countryside. Spartia is an ideal base for those who enjoy sailing and windsurfing.
To avoid pirate attacks many many years ago its narrow streets where laid out in a maize type fashion and high walls with tiny windows surrounded its houses. Sadly like practically all of Kefalonia the village was completely destroyed by the earthquake of 1953, the village was rebuilt as it is seen now, it still has those familiar narrow streets but its homes are now open and pleasant with gardens of many colourful flowers.
In the village a charming museum dedicated to owls and hedgehogs can be a nice change of venue if you like wildlife. Here you will be informed about the way of life of both animals and learn how to protect them in the natural world. You will be able to see examples of art from ancient to modern times depicting owls and hedgehogs as well as sculptures of these animals in ceramic, wood and bronze. There are likenesses of owls and hedgehogs on crockery, tiles and jewellery and children can learn how to make a hedgehog out of paper. The village council "To Sparto" plays host to many festivals and activities held throughout the year. Whilst during the summer months one can find a selection of tourist facilities including hotel accommodation along side the bars and restaurants of the village.
