we have recently returned from a break in this lovely rural village where we stayed at the Poseidon Residence. we did our homework and read all the reviews we could and chose to stay in a "superior studio". If there are just 2 of you then pick this grade of studio for some of the best views you are likely to see. The whole area is beautiful, you will probably want a car to explore the south coast.....the grounds of the Poseidon are immaculate and the owner and his small no., of staff are so helpful and friendly. the pool area is a joy, especially at either end of the day when the sun is not so hot.
The studios are Greek basic but quite sufficient for a very comfortable stay (although if you are used to a soft matress you may need a day or two to adapt). The property is very popular with uk visitors and perhaps more so with Italians and their families...I think because Ryan Air do cheap flights from Milan and Pisa the accommodation is really popular for short breaks, especially when the Italians traditionally take their holidays. If you want a good break in beautiful surroundings you could do a lot worse than book this little gem. If you do not enjoy the sound of children playing you might want to book outside of those summer months...but it didn't bother us at all.
Before you book though I would suggest you think very carefully about booking the flights directly yourself and not through a tour operator..you can then book the accommodation direct with the owner. We didn't do this and wish we had. Our early morning charter was 2 hours late taking off and we were only told about the delay when we were locked in the plane!! Similarly on the return....the tour operator insisted on picking us up at 08.00 for a 12.00ish flight and after dropping us at the airport informed us of another flight delay!! Spoilt an otherwise perfect break. It seemed that Easyjet and Monarch were away much closer to there advertised slots. We would certainly return and certainly recommend the Poseidon to couples and to families...its not a big place and is so welcoming...try the local taverna too....good atmosphere and realistic tariff.

Room Tip: superior studios for couples or solos have Superb views

If you are planning to visit Cefalonia, keep the Residence Poseidon in mind. Last July 2011, my family crossed the sea and visited the beautiful island of Cefalonia. It was such a pleasure to discover the beauty of this isle in the Ionian Sea. We really needed to get away from big city life and relax!
Browsing the web I discovered a residence called Poseidon. It turned out to be a jewel in the heart of a small village called Spartia. Near spectacular, pristine beaches, the Poseidon is located about 6 miles from Argostoli, the main town where one can find tavernas, night life, restaurants, markets and stores. Every day we woke to an incredible dawn, took a quick dip in the pool, had breakfast, and went to discover the beautiful beaches of the island, some of them completely desert, some others with tourist facilities.
The Posiedon is made up of cozy well furnished mini apartments with balconies and its garden setting, with a breathtaking vista over the sea, is romantic and offers relaxation for all. On site, there is a pool, café, tennis court and barbeque area. It is very reasonably priced.
What makes the Posiedon really special is the warm and welcoming atmosphere which the owners, Vaghelis and his wife, Anna, take pride in giving. Their wonderful staff is equally friendly and attentive to every need.
We enjoyed having breakfast on the balcony or pool-side in the quaint café. In the evening, we would enjoy drinks or a Poseidon barbeque feast under a light summer breeze, watching our children swim in the pool whilst the moon rose over the sea. We fell in love with this unforgettable place.

The friendly feeling and slow paced environment make the Poseidon a perfect vacation spot for both couples and families. We are definitely returning this summer! The Poseidon is absolutely enchanting.

Yet again another great holiday at this fabulous accomodation. This was our 2nd visit this year and my 7th or 8th in all. nothing is too much trouble, in fact they will go out of their way to make your stay as good as it can be. We have a 2yo who loves the little swimming pool and the swings in the gardens, the bar is great for a snack or meal or just a quiet drink, we really can't recommend this place enough, whether you just want to sit and relax or get out and about to explore, we love it and have already booked for next year.
