Sun, sea and stunning scenery in beautiful Assos
The four properties enjoy prime location in Assos, elegantly designed and furnished and with spectacular views across Assos bay, the beach and the venetian castle. Apollonia is a unique property situated at the end of the beach. The beach is only a short walk down a few steps, less than half a minute. Thalassa and Thimari are directly behind the Apollonia, also enjoying spectacular views of the beach and Assos with its Venetian castle beyond. One of Kefalonia's most magical sights, picturesque Assos sits off the beaten track – quiet and deeply relaxing. Assos features on many Greek island brochures and rightly so, situated in Northern Kefallonia it's scenic beauty is a show stopper. A visit to Assos is the only way to truly appreciate its beauty.

We had a perfect week in this lovely property. Sitting and watching the world go by in the most lovely situation. It was everything we had hoped thank you.
We have just returned from a wonderful week in Assos staying at Thalassa. We cannot praise highly enough the wonderful accommodation - the quality of the house, the location and fantastic views. Before arrival we had quite a few questions/requests - you might say we were a bit of a nightmare family - as we were coming with our two year old son. However, nothing was too much trouble - our emails were answered promptly and everything was as promised on arrival.
The accommodation was spotlessly clean and very spacious for the three of us and Marianna was there if you needed anything through not intrusive at all.
Assos is a delightful village - clean, incredibly friendly and great for kids.
We are hoping to book again next year.
A lovely place to stay
We had a marvellous week in Assos.
We hired a car and enjoyed travelling around but thought Assos was the jewel in the crown. There isn't a wild night life but that suited us. We liked being able to visit the small group of bars and restuarants and appreciated the friendly and warm reception we received.
Thalassa was prefect. It is a short walk down steps to the harbour for a swim and a short walk for a meal or a drink. It was a joy to be able to sit on the balconies that come off the living area and the bedroom and look out onto the harbour and the bay beyond.
Just back from Thallasa at Whitsun
First visit to Cephalonia and it didn't disappoint. Assos is a beautiful small village around a horseshoe bay, 3km down from the main road - driving not an issue at all. A handful of excellent restaurants around the waterfront and one further up the hill.
Thalassa is almost new and is beautifully constructed, very sympathetic to the surrounding houses. Everything about the house is first class - the description is spot-on. The exceptional thing about the house is the view from the balcony over the bay - hard to drag yourself away. Housekeeping first class.
This is not for you if you want a busy bustling seaside resort with speedboats and inflatable ride-on bananas! Not Club 18-30 territory I would think!
You really need a car to get to see the island as there's no public transport to Assos and taxis would be expensive all week. Driving is easy and relaxed, apart from Argostoli there aren't many roads to get lost on.
Took a last minute holiday at Thalassa in Assos last September. I knew Kefallonia was nice from relatives that go regularly but I wasn't prepared for the stunning beauty of this Island. The property was just magic!
We felt like we had discovered something really special. The owners were very helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. A welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, water and a bottle of wine made a huge difference as we arrived late and the local supermarket had closed.
We are booked up again to go this summer!
Best Holiday Yet!!
I have been coming to Assos for the past 7 years, staying in various apartments/hotels. Talking to some of the locals in the village, it was mentioned that I should look at the new apartments Thimari, Thalassa and Pefko. With the permission of the kind owners, I had a quick look around the apartments and I can honestly say that all three were stunning!! Wonderful facilities... finished to a very high quality and absolutely beautiful to look at. As soon as I got back from my holiday... I called and booked two weeks for this summer!! I cannot wait!!
