Sadly inaccessible due to landslides
Oct 2020 • Couples
We stopped here 17/10 or tried to unaware of the storms that caused landslides around the end of September. Very sadly everywhere is closed and a lot of damage has been caused to the streets and buildings by the small cove. You can still drive down but some roads are closed and the sea is brown from all the mud and earth that’s come down. Still nice to see from higher up and I hope they get everything fixed so people can enjoy this place again and bring more tourism

Beautiful little town
Sep 2020
I really enjoyed Assos. It is a truly beautiful place. The drive down to the town is interesting, to say the least. It is popular, in fact it was the only place in Kefalonia where I struggled to find a parking place. It was, however, well worth the effort!

Nice place, cute town
Sep 2020 • Friends
It is a nice cute town, a bit touristy and the restaurants reflect that a little. Worth a trip especially if you are going toward Myrtos Beach or Fiskardo

Assos- one of the very best places in Cephalonia.
Sep 2020
Four of us sailed from Kefalonia to Corfu via Preveza and Paxos and ended up at Gouvia Marina in Corfu. Friends were staying in a flat overlooking the bay which is where we had dinner on our third night. Assos is a beautiful bay with wonderful views in every direction including to the iconic Myrtos Beach.

We anchored in the bay and I was asked to swim into the shore to affix straps and ropes to the rocks so we could have a secure anchorage for the night.

The night was only slightly marred by the fact that a huge Superyacht was next to us and they ran a loud disco until after 4 am!

Assos is definitely one of the first places I would want to go back to when I return to Greece.

Lovely typical town and beautiful views on the way up to the castle
Sep 2020
Assos is a small town with some nice places to eat lunch. We really enjoyed the walk up to the castle. It takes about 40 minutes to walk to the top. It's not suitable for young children to walk when it's very hot as there's not much shade. We felt the views were lovely on the way up but the castle ruins were a bit disappointing once you get to the top. It's more about the stunning views on the way up and way back down.

This town is really nice if you want to bisit the castle or other interesting cultural points, but the beach isn't really nice and neither sunny in the morning.

beautiful views! and romantic place
Aug 2020
I enjoyed Asos more than Fiscardo! Very calm town with beautiful views on the way up to the castle. there are 2 beaches in this small town + hidden one on the way to the castle. The views from there are unforgettable! However not many restaurants and no bakery. It is worth to stay there if you want to rest from touristic places.

Assos is a very small place but very picturesque it was a fine bike ride from Fiscardo in the early morning. The Harbour area is very pretty but it is a very small although incredibly beautiful place

Stunning
Sep 2019 • Family
The two towns of Kefalianos left untouched by the earthquake were Assos and Fiskardo

Both are absolutely stunning.

We only spent a day in Assos, but it was beautiful.

The water was still and clear.

The floral Venetian architecture is absolutely stunning.

When in the water and looking out, I felt as if I was on the Amalfi Coast.

It’s a very small town with only a few eateries, so there’s probably not much to at night after dinner.

However, if that doesn’t concern you, then there is nothing better than Assos.

Gorgeous!!!

Beautiful little picturesque fishing village. Had a great meal in an unknown restaurant at the far north end of the port, absolutely delicious fresh fish and lovely service.
