Overview

About the property

3 bedroom 3 bathroom apartment 2 meters from the water

Probably the most unique house in Assos, sleeping 6 persons in 3 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms and boasting a private outside dining area on the water.

A large open plan living area leads to a well equipped modern kitchen with every convenience and a balcony that looks down onto a bustling harbour vibrant with colour.

All bedrooms are air conditioned and comfortably furnished with a mix of modern and antique furniture that really suits the character of this building

The 3 bathrooms are all of a good size and fitted with modern plumbing.The building was renovated a year ago and the owner has spared no expense making it perfect in every aspect.

The impression of Assos as an untouched Greek village starts on the approach road into the village. An exhilarating ride of endless hairpin bends and fantastic views leads you from the road along the cliff top to the delightful and romantic village of Assos waiting for you at the bottom, If you were to conjure up a picture of the archetypal sleepy Mediterranean Greek village featuring untouched villages and houses that have seen little change over the last couple of centuries then you might well picture Assos. Assos is the ideal destination for those holidaymakers who really want to get away from it all.

We actively encourage all our prospective guests to take 2 minutes to give us a call my number can be found at the bottom of this page,alternatively message me via the enquire now, this is more for your benefit than ours.

fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Really fab house right on the key in Assos. People would ring the doorbell and ask us how to rent it 😎. Obviously just been renovated as everything worked 🤣. Stones throw from the Tavernas . Platanos taverna serves legendary food . The best in the whole of Greece 🇬🇷 if you ask me !!

Great stay at Assos

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Assos in this lovely harbour townhouse. It had brilliant views from the house of the surrounding village and has soon as you walk out of the door there are a number of restaurants, a couple of small shops and of course the beach! For this property you definitely need to hire a car in order to explore more of the island. The house was set out over three floors, which worked well for our family break. The only thing we thought would have benifiited us was if it was a bit more toddler proof. We had to be very careful as the staircase to downstairs was open and the property had no stair gates. The house was well presented although a few loose wires are on display. The kitchen was well equipped and loved alfresco dining. We would definitely reccomend the property and it seemed a popular picture point for many a tourist passing by. The only thing we thought would have been nice would have been a welcome pack. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Amazing Everything

  • 5 of 5

Thalassa House is a beautiful and striking property, situated on the harbour front. Right from booking, Bob was very helpful and prompt in answering my many queries and was very willing to help with car hire and airport transfers if we had needed them. The directions Bob gave us from the airport to the house worked fine, although we weren't warned about the goats who like to lie on the road. The house itself matched the description and we were delighted with everything. The situation is beautiful, and right on the water's edge. It was so lovely to sit on the balcony for breakfast and watch the activities on the boats that had moored overnight. If the sea hadn't been so inviting, we could have sat there all day. Assos is a beautiful and unique village. Thalassa House has the advantage of being at the bottom of the hills with flat walking to the beach and other amenities. We used all four restaurants in the village, which were all great. It was difficult to establish a favourite! The snack bar was fine for lunch.

Overall, we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Assos and would use Greek Island Retreats again.

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Thalassa House, the position could not be better, the pretty pink and blue building it is part of the picturesque little harbour scene that everyone coming to Assos takes a photograph of, and we felt so fortunate to be staying there. The villa is very well equipped, clean bright and airy with a nautical theme in the top floor bedrooms. The best thing for us was the very convenient location and wonderful views from both balconies and all the bedroom windows, peaceful and quiet at night we could only hear the sea. The owner/s have provided lots of useful information about everything you need to know in the villa information book, a slight problem we had with the bathroom was sorted out within the hour by a very pleasant man who also cleaned the property with his wife, very thoroughly, even all the rooms we didn't use ! Booking went well and our security deposit was refunded within a few days of arriving home. Wonderful holiday and just the best place to stay.

A very special place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week as a couple, to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. The house was very lovely - beautifully decorated and furnished throughout. The location was incredible - right over the bay with the most stunning views all around. It is by far the nicest house in the area and tourists would stop to have their picture taken outside it! We loved sitting and watching the world go by over the bay. It is lovely to watch the boats coming and going while sipping a cold glass of wine in the evenings. The house is so close to all amenities and a stone's throw from the wonderful restaurants. One small niggle (and it is small to be honest as all in all it was great), is that the kitchen, although very nice, was not particulary well equipped. There was only one wine glass (the blue ones shown in the picture were locked away). There was no washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets etc or any tea towels. There is a washing machine but there was nothing available for drying the washing so we had to buy some washing line and improvise! However this was not really a big issue. The fridge is large and very cold. The bathrooms are all lovely (there are 3 of them) and very clean. The bed in the main bedroom is really comfortable. The windows all have mosquito blinds which is really good and means you can have them open without worrying about being bitten. There is plenty of space in the house for a couple and would be fine for a family or with friends etc as there are three bedrooms upstairs and two more downstairs.

We would definately come back again and hope to do so with friends in the near future.

Car: not necessary

The tiny, secluded village of Assos is a romantic setting and perhaps the most beautiful location on the island of Kefalonia. The Assos peninsula is on the west coast of the island with the village nestling in its horse-shoe shaped harbour. The whole area is surrounded by beautiful coastal scenery of dramatic white rocks and cobalt sea with hillsides covered in forests of cypress and pine.

Dominating the entire area are the remains of a Venetian fortress high up on the imposing peninsula.
