Spartylas is a small panoramic village in Corfu, famous for the stunning Ionian ocean views it offers. Gracefully nestled on at the verdant slopes of mount Pantokratoras at an altitude of 370 meters, above Pyrgi and Barbati, offering a magnificent view of the sea, in the whole bay of Ypsos, in Dassia and until the city of Corfu. The houses in Spartylas seem to hang over the steep slopes. The settlement is quite peaceful and pristine, despite its close proximity to the capital town of Corfu, which is only a 35-minute drive from the Villa. Spartylas Village is also popular for its taverns and restaurants which offer delicious meals of the Corfiot cuisine. The nearest beaches are those of Ypsos and Barbati, a few minutes from the Kastraki Villa in Corfu Island.

It lies around the natural bay, one of the most impressive beaches of Corfu hugged by the lush green forests and verdurous hills.
