Two-bedroomed Assos Oasis is the perfect villa for couples or small families. It’s nestled in the Kefalonia hillside and directly overlooks the crystal-clear Ionian sea. The villa boasts spacious and elegantly-designed interiors, including a calming colour palette of greys and beiges, exuding a feeling of blissful serenity.
Large glass windows and doors flood the space with natural light and let you enjoy those beautiful nature views, even when you’re indoors relaxing in the air conditioning.
On the first floor, there’s a cosy double bedroom with plenty of wardrobe space and a modern bathroom. The bedroom windows open out to a spacious terrace which overlooks the sea and the impressive craggy tree-lined hillside. Steps are leading down to the ground floor where the welcoming second double bedroom is with another bathroom.
There’s also an open-plan living, kitchen and dining area – equipped with everything you’ll need for cooking or relaxing. And, outside there’s also a barbeque and al fresco dining table, so that meal times are a bliss. Or, for when you’d like to dine out instead the friendly local tavernas in Assos village (a short drive away) are your go to.
The swimming pool terrace is the perfect place to enjoy romantic dinners by the flickering candles and under the blanket of stars. Head out earlier and watch the magical sunsets too. By day, dive in the cooling waters of the infinity pool that looks as if it flows into the emerald waters of the sea or bask in the sun as they lie on the comfortable loungers by the pool.
From your private natural staircase, you can also directly reach the oceanfront where you can enjoy a refreshing swim. The nearest beach is a short 200metre swim, or you can hop on a boat and get there in a few minutes.
The property cannot be booked online. Please note that your booking will only be confirmed once we have checked availability with the owner.
Assos Oasis is in the quiet and traditional village of Assos on the Ionian Island of Kefalonia. It shot to fame as a set of Louis de Bernieres' wartime novel – and later film – Captain Corelli's Mandolin. Years later, it still feels like an undiscovered secret with its serene natural setting, historic sites and a relaxed atmosphere.
Kefalonia is also renowned for its soft sandy beaches, mountain gorges and quaint harbour villages. Spend your days swimming in the crystal-clear waters, 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 Ionian island. It’s only a short drive from 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 – both seen from your terrace.
In Assos village, there are also verdant forests with pine and cypress trees to explore. The town is small and still retains its old-world charm with classic Ionian architecture and pretty pastel-coloured houses nestled into the steep hillside.
At the 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 to dine at or do as the locals do and sip cold coffee. Assos beach is also a must visit, with its clear waters and fantastic 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.
