We had fantastic time here. The hosts were absolutely delightful. Charming and helpful. They welcomed us with complimentary local wine and honey and provided us with all the info on island we needed.
Comfortable and clean two room apartment with fully equipped kitchen,AC and big balcony with sea view. Wi-fi was good. The place has it's own covered parking.
Spartia is a village near the Argostoli and is a good starting point for exploring this great and beautiful island. The village has very good restaurant in the center near the church and few more down the road to the beach. It also has few mini-markets but also Lidl and AB supermarkets are 5 min drive away on the main road to Argostoli. Village is in the hill above the beach and has some narrow streets with lot of curves so be prepared for careful driving and navigation.
We were really impressed with this place and Kefalonia itself. Perfect place.
We stayed in Pernari apartments during our stay in Spartia, Kefalonia.
The apartments are EXTREMELY good value for money, provided the perfect base with a kitchen area, decent hot shower, living area, comfortable bedrooms and a gorgeous balcony with stunning views over the ocean and greenery. The apartment was very clean and was ideal for a self- catering trip. There is a small supermarket just up the hill that provides all your basics and if you hire a car, there is a bigger supermarket only 10 mins away.
There are some lovely restaurants in the village, our favourite was the small family run restaurant right next to the mini market where the food was delicious and very authentic. The hotel at the beach on the left hand side of the road also served great food.
The village is idyllic, the perfect place to escape and get away from it all. There is a stunning beach a short drive or 15 min walk away ( if walking, you'll get a great workout when you walk back as its nearly all uphill) The beach itself has a beautiful backdrop of the mountain and the ocean is perfectly clear and was quiet and private, this was our favourite spot to relax and swim each day and really is one of the nicest most secluded beaches we've ever been to.
The village is filled with flowers and plants and provides an amazing smell everywhere you go.
It's worth visiting the cafe/restaurant located next to the forte/castle at the top of the mountain which served amazing home cooked food and fantastic service.
While staying in the village, you can visit Agostoli which is about 15 mins drive away for shopping, coffee, lunch, dinner and to see the local turtles who make an appearance in the harbour area. There's also a small fruit market to stock up on local fruit and veg. The local fruit is worth a mention as it tastes incredible.
The highlight of our trip was the amazing hospitality and generosity shown by the apartment owners Nicholas and Fofo who showed us around the island and made our stay so welcoming with a great introduction into Greek culture and family life on the island.
We had an amazing time and it was the perfect place to relax, unwind, enjoy the stunning views, eat incredible food and enjoy Greek culture. Highly recommended.
Thank you for a lovely holiday.
Just back from an amazing holiday. Kefalonia is an island that has so much too offer. We had a lovely stay at these holiday apartments. Kosta was Fabulous. The apartment we stayed in a two bedroom was really spacious for Greek standards. It had all necessary amenities to make our holiday comfortable.I already miss sitting on the verandah with a good cup of coffie admiring the lovely sea view. Will be back :)
