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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you are reading this, it is because you are looking for the best place to stay on Crete. well congratulations...you've found it! I recently stayed at Youphoria Villa with my family and we had the best time of our lives.

The pictures you see here do not even begin to do this place justice...it's better than you imagine.

The villa itself is modern and beautiful and has every thing you need for a perfect stay...from comfy furniture, a laundry machine, flat screen tv, a great fully stocked kitchen and even heart shaped ice cubes!

Perhaps the most special thing about this place is the owner...Vassilis, his family and staff.

Vassilis has fantastic taste and it shows in every possible detail. The villa is designed expertly...from the unbelievable view of the sea from the pool, to the wonderful stucco walls to the lay out of the villas themselves. In three weeks we never saw another guest despite the fact that they were all rented.

Vassilis and his staff (Giannis was the best!) make sure that your stay is perfect. From ideas of where to go, to constant directions via text and cell phone when you get lost on mountain roads to reservations whether it was horses or yachts...they were always there to help. And yet, totally respectful of your privacy and need to relax and be cut off from the world.

By now you should realize my advice...

book this place NOW!

We are already planning our next trip.

so if you are looking for the best...this is it.

Richmond, VA

Beautiful piece of Western Crete Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful hospitality and personalized service from all of the staff, manager and owner of the youphoria villas. Lovely vista over the sea and so close to city markets and traditional tavernas. Excellent amenities in the villas including kitchen, bedrooms and baths. Pools are all just wonderful focal points for family vacation togetherness.

Eleni was fantastic in making herself available to help with logistics through the week and included us in making us feel part of her Crete family, even offering us fresh fish from the market to prepare on our own grill. Vassilis was wonderfully helpful in coordinating our tour day at Samaria Gorge with tips for the day.

Enjoyed every minute and will savor the olive oil from the local grove!

A pristine setting for a memorable vacation!!

Thank yoiu for the memories, Youphoria
