Just a few minutes from the magnificent Myrtos beach lies one of the most picturesque and photographed villages of Kefalonia, Assos. Framed with luscious vegetation and turquoise waters, Assos is a haven for those seeking relaxation and peace. Preserving traditional Kefalonian architecture, modern elements create a feeling of timeless elegance and distinct Ionian flair. Houses painted with bright colors draw a glowing image imitating a colorful painting of exceptional beauty.
Assos was, and still is, a charming fishing village and apart from the picturesque fishing boats in the cove, you can taste delicious fish dishes in the traditional taverns and restaurants at the small square. Children can enjoy the sea and the sun at the pebbly beach in the protected gulf of shallow waters.
On the opposite hill, the ruins of an old Venetian castle offer spectacular views of the island and create a sense of an everlasting journey through time.
Small and secluded, Assos definitely is the ideal destination for a romantic visit during your vacation at Kefalonia. Totally unmissable!
