Resplendent on the Islands south coast, nestling in to the flank of Mount Ainos and commanding breathtaking views of the Ionian Sea and the island of Zante. Spartia is a peaceful countryside area near Trapezaki. This small village still retains much of its original charm and character, untouched by the rapid passage of time and offers a few small grocery stores and a handful of tavernas. Its maze liek streets were reputedly designed to confuse invading pirates in time gone by but nowadays, some well positioned signs take you down a quiet country lane, past a few tavernas, to an attractive sandy beach. A little further downt he coast lies the rocky Cape Liakas, with stunning views across the bay and unusual rock formations, ideal for snorkeling.
