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.
The village council "To Sparto" plays host to many festivals and activities held throughout the year witthe culmination of the festival that takes place on the last weekend of July.
