  • This small village on the northwest coast of the island is a real gem. in the middle of August it was not busy, perhaps because of the road deviation which reduced the ease of access: you'll get there anyway but with a much longer than in previous years. Do not miss the walk to the Castle, which, although difficult, offers views and spectacular sunsets.

  • ASSOS is a village very day ... with an incredible view! The village is filled with restaurants of excellent quality and good price ... without doubt one of the obligatory stop in Kefalonia.

  • Lovely small town - it has its own unique charm. Road to get there is very diverse so be careful. Beside walking 🚶 through the streets, or eating & drinking - there's really nothing else to do. 😴
  • This restaurant is in a little town, they have good food. Their service is very slow. They have good hums, I dont know if they take reservations, but if you want a table with a better view you may have to wait for a bit.
  • Picture post card of a village. Great taverna right on the waters edge over looking the harbour with the old fort up on the hill perfect photo opportunities with a cold drink in hand. The find a spot on the shingle beach and swim off lunch. Simply the most picturesque village in all of the island
  • Magic place. Amasing view. Very quiet to enjoy what nature offer to us. Also a place with good food with local wine. Perfect!
  • Good place to go for a historical tour, to synbathe, to eat, to drink. Assos has got something for everyone. Rocky beach, clean water.
