Kefalonia Villages | Assos & Fiscardo Village

Assos is one of Kefalonia’s most beautiful and picturesque villages. It is located 37 km. from Argostoli and it belongs to the Municipality of Erisos. It was named after the sailors from Assos in the Asia Minor, who used the area as a passing.

The permanent inhabitants of the area aren’t more than 25 residents these days. Still, it is one of the most beautiful places of the island and from Easter onwards, tourists from Greece and abroad swarm the area. The element that makes this sight so special is that the visitor can go back to the age when castles and knights didn’t exist only in fairytales and feel like the hero in his own story, switching between present and past, as the area combines houses which have maintained traditional Ionian architecture during their reconstruction and small taverns which offer a contemporary feeling. Historical signs can be found everywhere, as the residents don’t wish to create a tourist resort, but to also offer generously what makes them timeless.

A visitor can witness one of the most beautiful sunsets from the castle of the area, because due to its location, the view of the sun is as it falls on the waters of the Ionian is majestic. The beaches with blue waters- some of which are accessible only by boat- that are situated around the small stretch of land is one more thing that makes the castle of Assos so famous, providing one more reason for the island to win impressions!

Fiscardo is a picturesque and beautiful Greek harbour village on the Northern tip of Kefalonia, largest of the seven Ionian islands. Of the approximate 365 villages on this large and diverse island, Fiscardo is unique in that it was left virtually undamaged during the great earthquake of 1953,that ruined most of the  historic buildings on Kefalonia.

Traditional Kefalonian fishing boats moor alongside the more extravagant temporary visitors during the summer. If you are early enough you can buy freshly caught fish.  Otherwise a stroll around the harbour will take you on a tour of some of the most luxurious yachts.  Many of these are owned by the rich and famous who are attracted to Kefalonia by the tranquillity of Fiscardo

Fiscardo at night takes on an entirely different perspective. The lights, the old buildings, cafes, bars and restaurants all combine to provide a magical Mediterranean atmosphere.  Of  all the villages on Kefalonia, Fiscardo stands out as having a unique ambience, especially on a summer evening.
