1. Kefalonia

Just north of the stunning Myrtos beach lays the secluded village of Assos, one of the most beautiful and picturesque villages of Kefalonia. The village seems to be “lost in time”, giving off an almost mystical atmosphere. The visit to the castle will unlock a dreamy wedding proposal perspective. To reach it you will be required to make a long walk between the olive tree forests. Bear in mind that the drive from Argostoli is almost half an hour.

4. Leipsoi

Leipsoi, the small picturesque islet near Patmos in the Dodecanese, has  lately become a popular wedding destination.

Its dramatic views blended with your romantic status form a killer combination. As for the sunsets? Well, it’s the kind of thing you just have to see to fully understand why it’s such a big deal.
