wonderful place to unwind and relax
We wanted a private place where my husband could just relax and there is no better place than Youphoria Villas. The villas a beautiful, all facing the wonderful view of the bay. The staff are always there to help but are never intrusive. We had a perfect week and can't wait to go back
Wonderful Experience & Host!
This was an incredible experience. Our host, Eleni, was so wonderful and gracious. She was so welcoming and was one of the best parts of our stay. The villa was incredible, tucked behind olive groves, and in a quaint village with lots of cafes and close to the beaches. This was a 5 star experience, would recommend to a friend and to anyone! Thank you for such a great experience.
Wow! What a property! It was beautiful, perfectly furnished, and well stocked upon our arrival. Eleni was an amazing host, no detail was left undone. We ordered the box of local fresh fruit and vegetables upon are arrival (a perk) and they was delicious. The view was breathtaking. Vassilis (the property owner) stopped by before we left, to make sure we had a delightful visit, how could we not? Everything was perfect. One more thing, we traveled as a family, my husband and I, and our adult children with their partners. The set up of our unit was perfect, two seperate private areas, with their own bathrooms, and the main 'house' with the living area downstairs and the master upstairs. Just enough privacy to make us all feel comfortable, but not too far away. I highly recommend this property. Thank you Eleni and Vassili for making our Crete visit magical! We will be back!
Het was een schitterend verblijf!
Gastvrouw Eleni heel vriendelijk, staat altijd klaar met goede tips
Villa super mooi
Ik zou zeker terug gaan!
Niet twijfelen dus, doen!
Paradise witha view!
Stayed for 6 das in July 2017 - Eleni who is on site to care for guests needs went above and beyond. Eleni gave great suggestions on local Taverna', day trip to Balos, supermarkets, beaches to see and Greek language lessons -Yassou, Efharisto, and we had to say. Priceless view and only 7 minute drive to Kissamos to get groceries, we used her Synka discount card to shop like a local.
The only question needed to be answered is - Would we go back - YES!
The most idyllic holdiay ever.
This holiday was one of the best I have ever had. These villas are beautifully designed, with quality fittings and furnishings. Even the sunlounger cushions feel expensive. The bed linen is soft, the layout wonderful, the appliances modern. This was better than home! In addition the setting of the villas with the most wonderful peaceful views of the sea and mountains is sublime. It was hard to leave each day to go off and explore and joy to come back to every day. All the Youphoria staff are super friendly and helpful, they want to make sure you get the most out of your stay. It was simply amazing. and I cant wait to come back!
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 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 unspoiled 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 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.
