Kefalonia itself is a lush green island in the Ionian, famous for its turquoise seas and clean sandy beaches. One of the largest Greek islands, it also boasts the impressive Mount Aenos with thick fir forests as well as underground caves and ample countryside.
Around the estate are plenty of quiet spots for you to take time out and explore, including the organic vegetable gardens, the fruit tree grove with traditional well. The grounds are spacious enough for you to enjoy plenty of solitary moments, yet conveniently laid out to provide easy access to all the shared facilities. Just 300 meters from Spartia beach, you can choose between taking advantage of the local facilities including three restaurants and cafes at just a short walk away, or preferring to stay within the grounds.
Just a short stroll down hill offers you the choice of Vericoco’s two nearest beaches, both with trademark Kefalonian crystal-clear shallow waters. Spartia beach offers the advantage of the local facilities for those who want to grab a drink or snack, and Thermanti offers the advantage of being secluded from the crowds as it is only accessible by foot, making this place very magical.
