Kefalonia Assos

Information about Assos

Assos Kefalonia: Assos is a small and charming village located 36 km north of Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia. Today, it counts about one hundred inhabitants and is one of the most charming spots of the island. Dominated by the ruins of a 16th century Venetian castle, the village of Assos is built on a small peninsula reflecting a beautiful and warm atmosphere.

The traditional architecture, the peaceful landscape and the pebbled beaches compose the natural beauty of Assos. A stroll around the narrow alleys reveals colorful houses with pink and white blooms, lovely paths and old churches. Little taverns perched on the quayside overlooking the bay attract most of the visitors. The visit to the castle requires a long walk amidst the olive tree forests until you reach an archway. This journey is quite interesting and refreshing.

    Wonderful Assos
    Just got back from a wonderful, restful seven days in Assos. We stayed at the Cavos Inn and what an absolutle treasure of a place. Location is perfect as to sit and view the wonderful scenery whilst enjoying your breakfast is something my wife and I will look back on with great pleasure. Local tavernas are all good to dine at and the North Restaurant was especially a lovely , friendly place to view Assos from and enjoy really good Greek coooking at its best, plus Plantanos ( I think that's how it's spelt) must also be considered. A really nice wine bar with lovely seating is also in the Paris Square and a perfect place for a cocktail or coffee to finish off the evening.
    I have been to only three island in Greece and Assos in Kefalonia with its breathtaking views from all angles has to be the loveliest place of them all.
    As Arnie says " I'll be back"
