Rest your furrowed brow at this luxury Kefalonia sea-front villa with one stylish bedroom, a private swimming pool and unique Ionian views. From the outdoor terrace to the comfortable living room, the villa celebrates the unspoilt landscape with its prime positioning and use of large glass windows and doors.

Add to that the world-renowned Myrtos Bay – a sandy beach set at the foot of two majestic mountains – a short drive away as well as the charming village of Assos with its picture-worthy architecture and friendly local tavernas, and all your holiday needs are covered.

In contrast to the area’s ancient claims, Assos Heart is a modern villa with all the amenities you’ll need to for a homely stay. Think fully-equipped kitchen, living and dining room as well as an outdoor barbeque, and extra warm touches like bright artwork and playful pops of colour in the furniture or soft furnishing.

Plus, with a charming circular alfresco dining table, you can enjoy your meals while gazing at the azure of the sea and the magical sunset fading away behind historical Assos castle.

Back outside, the swimming pool looks as if it's spilling right into the sea and if you swim up to the edge you’re awarded more spectacular views. When you’re not cooling off in the crystal-clear waters, cosy up on one of the bean bag chairs with your favourite holiday read or find your prime sunbathing spot on one of the cushioned loungers.

There are also plenty of shaded places too if you need a rest from the warm Mediterranean sun. From the terrace, a natural private staircase winds down to the seafront and takes you to a rock platform. From there you can dive straight into the sea.

The tasteful design and minimal, contemporary fittings exude an air of unrivalled relaxation at this villa. Plus, set in a quiet and utterly private spot overlooking the sea, it’s the perfect choice for honeymooners or small families wanting to spend some quality time together.

Assos Heart is in the quiet and traditional village of Assos on the tranquil Ionian Island of Kefalonia. It shot to fame as a set of Louis de Bernieres' wartime novel – and later film – Captain Corelli's Mandolin. Years later, it still feels like an undiscovered secret with its serene natural setting, historic sites and a relaxed atmosphere.

Kefalonia is also renowned for its soft sandy beaches, mountain gorges and quaint harbour villages. Spend your days swimming in the crystal-clear waters, exploring the Venetian-style architecture or trying fresh local cuisine like seafood, mezes or moussaka.


The villa itself offers the perfect starting point for exploring more of this beautiful Ionian island. It’s only a short drive from must-see sights like the 15th-century Assos castle in Assos village and Myrtos bay with its picture-worthy beach that’s framed by tall cliffs – both seen from your terrace.

In Assos village, there are also verdant forests with pine and cypress trees to explore. The town is small and still retains its old-world charm with classic Ionian architecture and pretty pastel-coloured houses nestled into the steep hillside.

At the harbour, you can while away the afternoon watching fishing boats and luxury yachts mooring, while in the village square there are tavernas, shops and restaurants to dine at or do as the locals do and sip cold coffee.

Assos beach is also a must visit, with its clear waters and fantastic views across the bay. You can relax on the pebbles or swim and snorkel in the sea. From the villa, Assos village can be reached by car. The coastal route to get there is spectacular and takes in the dramatic rock formations and tranquil sea waters.  

In Kefalonia, you’ll also find many intriguing caves to discover. There’s the magical underground lake of Melissanthi or Drogarati with its exquisite natural formations. You could also hop on a boat and head to the untouched coves, inlets and secluded beaches.

Some tours stop off for lunch and swimming. Or, for a dose of culture instead, head to Saint Gerasimos monastery. It’s an impressive 15th-century building that sits beneath Mount Ainos, near the villages Falgrata and Valsamata.

Getting There

How to reach Kefalonia island

There are two ways to get to Kefalonia island: either by flight or by ferry.

By plane:  During the busy months, the airport of Kefalonia (EFL) receives a great number of domestic but also charter flights. The airport is located 7 km outside Argostoli, the capital of the island.

By ferry: Kefalonia has three ports: Sami (SMI), Argostoli (ARM), and Poros (PKE). If you want to arrive in Sami you should depart from Patra (GRA). In case you want to arrive to Poros or Argostoli you can depart from Killini (KIL). The trips last from 1.5 to 3 hours. You can easily book your ferry tickets using the link below or the booking engine.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages

With its beautiful natural scenery, soft sandy swimming beaches and impressive ancient architecture, Kefalonia is a must visit for families. Assos Heart itself has a private swimming pool and an enclosed terrace area that’s perfect for young children to play safely and in sight.

For days spent by the beach, the world-renowned Myrtos bay with its sheltered, calm swimming waters and soft sandy shore is a short drive away.

There, kids young and old can enjoy splashing about in the water or snorkelling the coastline looking for colourful fish. There’s also pebbly Assos beach that has crystal-clear waters and is close to the village for amenities.

For family-fun day trips, you can jump on a boat from Assos harbour and explore the untouched coves and islets. There are also plenty of caves to explore in Kefalonia like Melissanthi, a magical underground lake and Drogarati with its exquisite natural formations.

Or, to learn about the ancient history, there’s Assos castle, Argostoli Archaeology Museum and Saint Gerasimos monastery.
