Guestbook comments from the owner
Myself, my hubby and our 2.5 year old son stayed recently at Youphoria. We decided to splash out on three days of luxury and enjoyed our stay so much we extended it another day.
The villa is situated up a hill just a short drive from Kissamos. Personally I didn't love Kissamos but it was a great place to get supplies, have a coffee, do a spot of shopping so on that basis it was absolutely fine. However the villa is in a truly gorgeous spot, up a hill looking out over the bay with hills on either side. The view is really something.
From the villa you can easily get to the fabulous local restaurant Gramboussa - We went twice in four days!
And the fantastic beach at Phalasrna.
We weren't there that long but if you are happy to drive about there is plenty to do. Alternatively a day spent at the villa is equally fun.
The villa itself has a wonderful outside space ideal for dining in the sun. It even has a bbq. it also has a great pool, but be vigilant with little tots. As always it could be a bit slippy poolside. That said, we never had any problems.
Indoors, the villa has everything you might need. Its compact but well equipped especially the kitchen which is really smart. The bedrooms are spotless and romantic, the bathrooms are high end. Overall, the place has a very expensive feel. They haven't cut corners anywhere. The whirlpool bath was awesome.
On arrival we were met and fully informed about the house. They even left some toys for our little one to play with along with high chair and cot.
I can't massively fault anything it really was one of the most amazing places i have eve stayed.
Below are the tiny things which are worth mentioning.
A bit hard to find - we missed the turning looking for it. Essentially there is a dirt track directly alongside the petrol station. Keep going through the olive fields and you will get there.
It's very new so in years to come when the planting has bedded in - it will be really stunning but there is a bit of building equipment stored at the top. Again, not a problem, never in use and honestly didn't bother me. Just worth mentioning because on first look you may think they are still building at the top.
Each villa is really private and we always felt left alone, but some paths run along side to get between the villas so from time to time the people working there will pass. Just worth noting if you need someone very very private.
I honestly can't criticise anything else.
