Kastelli (Kissamos) Villa Rental Photos and Description

Brand new stylish property with magnificent views and private pool in NW Crete

Further information about our villas on youphoriavillascrete.com

Situated on the beautiful north-west coast of Crete in the village of Agios Georgios near the small town of Kissamos, the newly built Youphoria villas have been designed with luxury holiday living in mind and have many innovative architectural and environmentally friendly features throughout.

The six, signature architecture, private villas enjoy a privileged hillside position overlooking the stunning Gramvousa peninsular and the turquoise waters of Kissamos Bay and are surrounded by lush olive groves. Three of the villas are built around St Constantine Chapel which dominates the hilltop and three are lower on the foothill.

Each villa has its own unique living space with the emphasis being on outdoor entertaining, dining and relaxing. The award-winning COCO Mat soft furnishing has been carefully chosen to provide the maximum comfort with the use of natural and raw materials. The unique signature of architect Dimitra Nikolaou and her Istos team, as well as the care and attention of local talented interior designer Stavroula Mauromataki, gives you the chance to enjoy a different perspective in holidaying at a Cretan villa. Youphoria villas boast unique aesthetics with an authentic feel.

The entire fenced property has two gated entrances from the bottom and top of the hill. All villas enjoy a state of the art, integrated, eco-friendly under floor cooling/heating system using heat pumps and water in place of refrigerant.

There are many unspoilt beaches within easy reach and in the nearby town of Kissamos, there are numerous shops, cafes and tavernas. Just a short ten minute walk from the villas will take you to the crystal clear waters of Viglia beach, where you can swim and be at one with nature.

The Port of Kissamos is a stone’s throw away from Agios Georgios and from here, you can take a boat ride to the pirate island of Gramvousa and the world famous Balos Lagoon.

The excellent location also means that you are close to many of the highlights of western Crete, just waiting to be discovered. Youphoria villas are five minutes drive away from the impressive golden sands of Falasarna beach (voted one of the top five best beaches in Greece) with its unspoilt turquoise waters and an interesting archaeological site showing the Hellenistic ancient port and city.

Around fifty minutes drive south of Youphoria is the beautiful beach of Elafonissi where one can get lost exploring the island of Elafonissi (Deer Island) which is unique for the cedar sand dunes and unspoilt natural habitat.

Youphoria Villa guests will also have the opportunity to walk the famous Gorge of Samaria which at 17 kilometers long, is granted as the longest in Europe.

Try some exquisite local fresh fish and traditional dishes from the world famous healthy Mediterranean diet at one of the local tavernas or restaurants.

Youphoria villas offer a luxurious solution for the elite traveler with a desire for exceptional style and design.

Details for Abyss 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 3, 2 Bathrooms

The living space and pool area in this unique one bedroom villa is all on one level with access via a wheelchair friendly pathway which leads through the gardens to the car parking space. There is great emphasis on outdoor living, with much indoor space flowing through to the external terrace. The stylish outdoor dining area is covered by a specially designed pergola which also extends over part of the pool providing some shade but also allowing sunlight through. Surrounding the villa are thoughtfully planted gardens with endemic shrubs, flowers and trees which are complimented by traditional stone walls that blend into the natural environment. The private infinity pool has full width Roman steps overlooking the lush olive groves towards the stunning blue Aegean Sea. Throughout the villa, there are many large “picture” windows making the most of the natural sunlight and providing panoramic sea views from any room. The innovative architectural concept of this villa means that the living and sleeping areas are in two separate buildings with access to each other via an adjoining stone walkway.

In addition, the lounge has a Cimentogonia surface sofa bed suitable for sleeping an extra person.

Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned back from staying at Youphoria villas and it was a lovely 8 nights of pure relaxation!

The swimming pool with the view was beautiful!

The outside dining area was lovely for both breakfast and dinner although the only problem were the insects at night but we ignored them after a while.

Bedroom and living area were comfortable and the kitchen had most of the things we needed.

Easy to get to by car!

Overall a 5 star experience with an amazing view!

breathtaking-my best vacation

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here one week and everything was exceptional!! The villa is totally new, with wonderful forniture, full equipped, included free wifi. I stayed in villa oneiro, with 2 bedrooms with the own bathroom. The upperfloor bedroom was wonderful, you can see the seaside from the big window in front of the bed.

The villa has a great big private pool facing the sea with sunbeds and a table and it is surrounded by the olive trees. you can enjoy nature and totally relax yourself.

The villa is really near to Balos and falassarna.

there are lot of little shops and good tavernas near there.

I totally suggest to everyone and I'll come back for sure. I miss it already...

The car is necessary
