Nautical-inspired three-bedroomed Assos Marine with its pops of blue picking out the azure hues of the Mediterranean sky and the Ionian sea is a relaxing holiday treat. The luxury villa on the north-west coast of Kefalonia has a private swimming pool terrace that overlooks sparkling Myrtos bay and charming Assos village.
Décor is an elegant combination of old and new with rustic stone walls and classically Greek pots, as well as natural-coloured walls and contemporary-cool furnishings.
Both the interior and exterior steal the show at this waterfront villa. The walled courtyard features a traditional-style barbeque and a gazebo with alfresco dining table and cushioned day beds underneath for enjoyable meal times or relaxation in the cool of the shade.
The swimming pool, on the other hand, looks as if it's spilling right into the sea and is lined with loungers and cushions for prime sunbathing. Potted plants and lanterns only add to the serene outdoor ambience.
Assos Marine also boasts a generously-sized open-plan sitting area and dining room, as well as a fully-equipped kitchen. Large French windows let the beautiful natural light inside, create that feeling of extra space and allow you to make the most of those fantastic sea views and Kefalonia’s magical sunsets.
See if you can spot Assos castle in the distance! From the ground floor, steps lead to the first master double bedroom with its large balcony and comfortable bed.
There’s also a twin bedroom with a separate master bathroom on the second floor and a spacious attic room with a double bedroom – perfect for couples, friends or families alike.
When you’re not lounging by your pool, Assos village with its laid-back atmosphere, friendly local tavernas and winding cobbled streets await. From the villa, it’s also a short drive to the famous Myrtos Bay – a soft sandy stretch of coastline that sits between two impressive mountains.

- There are other properties nearby; however Assos Heart is designed to be private
- The villa is on a slight incline, so it’s easier getting to the sea than it is getting back

Assos Marine is in the quiet and traditional village of Assos on the 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.

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.
With its beautiful natural scenery, soft sandy swimming beaches and impressive ancient architecture, Kefalonia is a must visit for families. Assos Marine 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.
