Assos is located 36 km north of Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia. It is a small village with about one hundred inhabitants and is one of the sweetest parts of the island. Dominated by the ruins of a 16th century Venetian castle, the village of Assos is built on a small peninsula reflecting a beautiful and warm atmosphere. Its naturaal beauty is made up from its pebbly beaches, traditional architecture and its peaceful landscape. A stroll around the narrow alleys reveals colorful houses, for rent, with pink and white blooms, lovely paths and old churches. It has a lovely quayside full of tavernas that are popular with visitors.Its a long walk to the castle but well worth a visit you will pass the forest of olive trees forests and the journey is interesting and refreshing along the way to the entrance archway..
