The first time I was visiting Kefalonia I almost missed the exit down to this amazing little village. When I saw the sign to Assos something in my head recalled that I had read about the place. Maybe it is worth a stop, and it is time for lunch anyway. How glad I am that I stopped. Assos is such a peaceful and beautiful place (perhaps not so peaceful during high season) with only three tavernas and two cafées.

The little beach is perhaps not the best on the island, but it is still very nice to lie on one of the few sunbeds that can be rented and read a book. When you get to hot, the water is just a meter away. And when you’re hungry you just walk to one of the three taverns.

If you are staying a few nights in Assos you also have a short drive to the number one beach on Kefalonia Myrtos beach. You basically just go up the long winding road from Assos and then after a short drive on the main road, you go down the long and winding road to Myrtos.

There are several nice hotels in this little village, but one of the nicest is with out doubt Roi Apartments. Besides having a fully equipped apartment with comfortable beds you get amazing views over the ocean from the balcony. The whole place is just fairy tail beautiful with flowers everywhere.

Assos is great for a day trip or for staying a few days. You could of course stay here for a week, but that would require a car so that you can visit Fiskardo and other beaches ever so often.
