Kompothekrata is located 6 km from Argostoli and has 230 residents. It borders with Kokolata and Lakythra villages.

It is a small village whose inhabitants are mainly engaged in agriculture, that’s why there are many greenhouses in this region.

The village has a limited number of accommodation, but it offers visitors a great view over Argostoli Bay and Koutavos lagoon. In the background, there is the Castle of St. George, which was the capital of the island during the Venetian occupation.
