Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach Walk to Village

With its prime water-front spot in north-west Kefalonia, two-bedroomed Assos Sun is a coastal retreat that should be on your radar. Hidden on the cliffside, near the charming village of Assos, it’s quiet and peaceful.

The best of both worlds; it’s also steps from the Ionian Sea and is a short drive from the village centre with its historic castle, beautiful Venetian architecture and friendly local tavernas. When you’re not splashing in your private swimming pool, they’re the places to be.

The ground floor of Assos Sun includes an open-plan living, kitchen and dining room which creates the feeling of light and space. There’s also doors leading directly out onto the terrace and a contemporary cool bathroom.

The modern colour palette of greys and beiges is soothing, while the addition of comfortable furnishings like cushion-adorned sofas and a charming wooden dining table sets a homely setting. The kitchen is sleek with its whitewashed and silver-tone countertops, and there’s everything you’ll need for at-home dining; an oven, dishwasher, microwave and more.

Steps from the spacious terrace lead down to the lower ground floor where you’ll find the spacious swimming pool terrace. The pool is lined with cushioned sun loungers and a gazebo so you can find your favourite spot in the sun or the shade.

There’s also a barbeque and al fresco table – perfect for cooking that fresh seafood on – and breathtaking views of Assos castle and the tree-lined hillside.
Upstairs, more large windows allow you to enjoy those magical sea and sunset vistas.

On this floor, you’ll find the master double bedroom and the second bedroom with two twin beds. Both rooms are equally stylish, continuing the pastel-hued theme and each has a full balcony equipped with cushioned wicker chairs. A large bathroom with feature sink and a mixture of graphite and smooth pebble walls separates the two bedrooms.

Booking
The property cannot be booked online. Please note that your booking will only be confirmed once we have checked availability with the owner.

What you should know…

  • The steps leading down to the seafront are quite steep, so please watch your step

Assos Sun 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.

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
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

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