Spartia is a small village in the Livatho region, a few miles south east of the airport. The sunny bay of Spartia faces south and is sheltered from the predominant northwest winds.
Here you will find pretty houses perched on flowery hillsides, sloping down to a coastline indented with beaches protected by outcrops of rock. Behind it all stand the remains of the castle of Saint George. It is good walking country and still very Greek. In the centre of the village is a small square with a few taverns and grocers' shop nearby. The landscape here is fertile with an abundance of grapevines, fruit trees and olive groves. The small beach of rock and sand is an ideal place for quiet relaxation. Conditions here are ideal for sailing and wind-surfing.
Spartia used to be the home of a charming museum dedicated to owls and hedgehogs, where information was given about the way of life of both animals and ways to protect them. Sadly, the Owl and Hedgehog museum in Spartia village is now for sale.
