It’s not hard to see why this two-bedroomed villa is named ‘view’ or ‘Thea’ in Greek. Set in the idyllic north-western part of Kefalonia, Assos View boasts spectacular views of the rugged tree-lined coastline and directly overlooks the glistening Ionian.
From your private pool area, dotted with cushioned sun loungers, you can spot ancient Assos castle, while from your generously-sized garden terrace in the south, you’ll find picture-worthy vistas of Myrtos bay, Assos village and Assos castle.
But it’s not just the views that give this villa the wow factor. Both inside and out, the décor is modern and stylish, and everything has been created lovingly with your utmost comfort in mind.
Think sizeable fully-equipped kitchen and chic living and dining area with large glass windows letting in the beautiful natural light. Soft furnishings come in a contemporary colour palette of greys and creams and include playful pops of blue, picking out the hues of the Mediterranean sky and the sea.
Assos View is ideally sized for a small family holiday. There’s a large bedroom with two twin beds and a balcony, as well as an attic room with a master double bedroom. Extra thoughtful touches include wardrobes and arty touches like hanging lamps and wall art.
When you're not resting on your plush bed after a fun-filled day of exploring, cool off in your swimming pool or find your prime sunbathing spot. There’s also a shaded alfresco dining table and chairs for some reprieve from the warm sun, as well as a rustic stone barbeque for cooking up your fresh produce.
From the villa, it’s a short drive to the centre of Assos village with its traditional Ionian architecture, winding paths and friendly local water-side tavernas.
The famous beach of Myrtos can also be reached by car. The sandy spot is set between the feet of two impressive mountains, Agia Dynati and Kalon Oros, so the waters are sheltered and calm – perfect for swimming and snorkelling.
The property cannot be booked online. Please note that your booking will only be confirmed once we have checked availability with the owner.
Assos View is in charming Assos village on the tranquil Ionian Island of Kefalonia. With its serene natural setting, historic sites and relaxed atmosphere, it’s the perfect place for a holiday. Kefalonia is also renowned for its varied terrain – from soft sandy beaches to mountain gorges and quaint harbour villages.
Spend your days swimming in the crystal-clear sea, 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 Greek island. It’s near to 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.
In Assos village, there are also verdant forests with pine and cypress trees to explore. The town is small and quiet and still retains its old-world charm with classic Ionian architecture and pretty pastel-coloured houses nestled into the steep hillside.
At the small 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. Assos beach is also a must visit, with its clear waters and 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.
