It is located near Cape Gerogompos. One of the most famous lighthouses in Greece, in a unique spot that makes you feel like the whole Ionian Sea washes your feet.

The village seems to be ‘lost in time’ and gives off an almost mystical atmosphere. Pretty coloured houses nestling into the craggy hillside, dot the scenery with colours beyond the dominating blue and green.  Built amphitheatrically around the homonymous peninsula, it is surrounded by luscious green scenery and verdant forests. Pine and cypress trees and the crystal clear blue waters of the Ionian Sea, create a unique combination and make Assos an ideal setting for breathtaking sunsets.
