Overview

Introduction

Fiscardo & Assos - Transfer time 90-120 minutes (dependent on seasonal traffic)

The north of Kefalonia is a land of rolling, heavily wooded hills (cypress and pine predominating here over olive), gleaming white-pebble beaches, and some of the island’s prettiest villages.

Fiscardo is most picturesque and upmarket. Located on the island’s northeastern tip, it gazes dreamily to Ithaca. The pastel colours of the old fishermen’s houses along the waterfront – now housing restaurants, smart cafés and small shops – contrast with bright splashes of bougainvillaea, whilst fishing boats jostle with yachts for the prime moorings. Inevitably Fiscardo gets busy in the high season.

There are some lovely beaches, such as beautiful Emblissi and a selection of smaller pebble beaches and coves to the south reached on foot or by boat. In the other direction lies peaceful Foki Bay some 20 minutes’ from the harbour.

From Fiscardo you can visit Ithaca and also Lefkas for the day. Car hire is also available (note: if you want the car for the duration of your holiday, we recommend you book a car from the airport due to high delivery charges to the resort. For shorter hire periods, it is best to rent locally). But most visitors are happy to stay put; perhaps renting a small motorboat to explore the coastline and coves during the day before deciding which harbour restaurant to be tempted by that evening.

20 kms to the south, tiny Assos lies far below the road running above the steep north west coast. For such a well known beauty spot it remains remarkably unspoiled.

Its setting is a picture. Built above a horse-shoe shaped bay, it has a fishing harbour to one side and a pebble beach to the other. The bay is a natural harbour and guarded by the remains of the Venetian fortress which crowns the hillside opposite.

Despite the earthquake of 1953, Assos has managed to retain some of its old houses and facades. The village today has four tavernas, a couple of cafe-bars and a mini-market. Assos is a reasonable base from which to discover northern Kefalonia - you will need a car, though, as the bus service is limited.

Assos should appeal to anyone looking for a quiet, away-from-it-all holiday in atmospheric, very pretty surroundings and an unspoiled small village atmosphere.
