Villa Location
Surrounded by olive groves on the edge of the village of Spartia, Villa Sandy Cove has fabulous views over the mountainside down towards the bay. Below the villa is a sheltered sandy beach and small harbour with fishing boats and 2 good tavernas, just a 5 minute drive away. Offering a great base to explore the island, nearby is the Castle of St George, the Mazarakata tombs and St Andreas monastery. The capital of Argostoli, a 20 minute drive away, provides the opportunity for shopping and sampling more of the local lifestyle. Our villa Secret Cove is next door.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

The unspoilt village of Spartia has a village shop, mini market and a small choice of eateries. Alternatively, the nearby capital of Argostoli has a greater choice of traditional and contemporary shops to explore. It also offers an opportunity to buy fresh fish from the local fishing boats which bring their catch into the harbour every morning, closely followed by large Loggerhead turtles looking for scraps, and the pavement side fruit and vegetable stalls sell a large variety of local produce.


Bars and restaurants

There are a couple of good tavernas just a short walk from your villa, offering traditional Greek cuisines. Alternatively, Livathos, just 20 minutes' drive away, has a choice of places to eat in its quaint village centre and the nearby capital of Argostoli has a much greater selection.


Beaches

The nearest beach is at Spartia itself, only a few minutes away by car, with a parking area and an expanse of fine sand very popular with the locals. To the left of the beach is a small jetty and harbour where local fishermen moor their boats and large turtles can often be seen swimming in the bay. The local areas of Lourdas and Livathos are also within easy reach by car and have a choice of fantastic sandy beaches to explore.


Family fun

The resort of Lourdas, 20 minutes' drive away, offers boat hire as well as water ski and jet ski facilities in high season. Why not be a skipper for the day and explore the beautiful coastline?


Places to visit

A drive across the mountains to Sami on the east coast is a must if only for the spectacular scenery, as is a visit to the natural phenomenon that is Melisanni, the lake in the cave. Or visit Mount Ainos, although not for the faint hearted, which provides dramatic views of the unspoilt beauty of Kefalonia.


Other activities

For anyone wanting to enjoy something more cultural, close by is the beautiful Monastery of St. Gerasimos, the Patron Saint of the island, and the Robola wine co-operative.

Activities and things to do
Activity
Agios Gerasimos Monastery
Agios Gerasimos is the patron saint of the island. On its feast day, the monastery is swarming with pilgrims. According to tradition, he was born in Trikala of Korinthia and was a member of the famous Notaras family. He became a monk and spent twelve years in the Holy Land and five years in Zakynthos. He came to Kefalonia in 1560 and stayed in the cave of the same name, south of Argostoli.

Later, he founded the monastery and took residence there until his death on 15 August, 1579. Two years later, on 20 October, 1581, his relics were placed inside the monastery. He was canonized in 1622. At the courtyard, there is a big plane tree and a well, which is said to have been dug by the saint himself. Inside, there is a trap-door where he is said to have spent the greater part of his life. On the 15th of August and the 20th of October, big festivals and processions take place. Many miracles are connected to the saint's relics and icon.
Activity
Mount Ainos National Park
In 1962 Mount Ainos was declared a National Park by the Greek state. The forested area of the range now covers an area of 2826 hectares. The larger part of Mount Ainos is given over exclusively to the unique Kefalonia pine (Abies cephalonica), with its straight trunk, its rich pyramid-shaped foliage and its characteristic pine needles. The species retains its purity on Kefalonia since it is protected by the isolation of the island. The highest mountain on Kefalonia, Ainos, extends like a spinal cord through the southern part of island. It has a total length of 10 km and its highest peak is Mount Soros, at 1628m. Mount Roudi is an extension of this range to the north-west, the highest peak being Yioutari, which rises to 1125m.
Activity
Kefalonia Robola Wine
The Robola wine cooperative winery is located at Kefalonia Island, Ionian Islands, and western Greece. More specific at the plateau of the Community of Omala, in an altitude of 700 metres, in the slopes of the gorgeous and green full Ainos Mountain

In Kefalonia the unique wine, Robola, is grown and produced. A harmonious white wine of high quality, it is one of the most well known wines in Greece (Hellas). Its wonderful balanced taste, strong note and unique white colour are just a few of the qualities which have established its reputation world-wide.The cultivation of this particular grape is known to be really hard work on the slopes of Mountain Ainos, where the soil is poor and stony, and vineyards can be found as high as 800 m.

The winery is open from 9am to 8.30 pm and is well worth a visit.
Activity
Boat Hire and Watersports
Hiring a boat is a fantastic way of exploring Kefalonia's coastlines. A licence is not required, nor do you need previous experience as novices will receive introductory instruction in boat handling before being let loose.

Watersports, yacht charter (skippered or bareboat), scuba diving and riding are also available.

Activity
Scuba Diving
There are places in Lassi, Agia Efimia, Argostoli and Fiskardo that offer an opportunity to scuba dive and our representative will be able to give more information.
