Brand new stylish property with magnificent views and private pool in NW Crete
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.
The living area is compact but modern with extensive natural stone features that extend right up to the eves of the building. In addition, the lounge has a Cimentogonia surface sofa bed suitable for sleeping an extra person. The kitchen area is open plan with stylish and practical Corian work surfaces with an informal dining area and top of the range appliances.
Accessible from a large terrace, the master bedroom is open plan with an award-winning COCO Mat double bed and glass partition separating the sleeping space and modern dressing area. The spacious en-suite bathroom has a Jacuzzi bath that faces a private picture window with wonderful sea views.
Villa Abyss is the ideal retreat for a discerning couple or friends looking for style and laid back ambience.

Superb villas.Eleni the manager is extremely helpful highly recommended
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!
Einwandfrei in allen Bereichen !
Sehr idyllisch gelegen, die Villa war in sehr gutem Zustand. Man wurde sehr herzlich Willkommen gehiessen und betreut. Der Ausblick und die Umgebung sind wirklich toll. Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen !
Nur zu empfehlen !
breathtaking-my best vacation
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 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.
