Assos is at the far south-west of the Erisos region and just north of Myrtos Beach, it’s picture postcard appearance makes it a very popular destination. The downhill road to the village is spectacular and full of twists and turns affording stunning views out to the Ionian Sea; on a good, clear day you will be able to see the village and the peninsular behind which is home to the castle.
The village itself, although small is full of life during the summer months and parking can sometimes be difficult, but if you do manage to find a space it’ll be well worth it. There are 2 small beaches and a good choice of bars and tavernas, as well as some souvenir shops.

John.H ”Assos is picture postcard pretty with beautifully clean, calm water for swimming and a small but excellent selection of friendly tavernas. It was the perfect setting for a chilled villa holiday…..

….. We enjoyed going to the butchers in the hills where we bought meat for the BBQ and fresh feta from the barrel. Greek holidaying at its best”

Sara ”We visited Assos for a day and absolutely loved it, so picturesque, just beautiful. We plan to stay for a couple of nights next time we go to Kefalonia”
