The two projects of Sea View and Beach Front villas represent the vision, hope, sweat and tears of the Gialamarakis family who is now completing 27 years consistent work in tourism.
We have been successful hoteliers for more than a quarter of a century and our boutique hotel, the Mistralat Maleme- which specialises in sociable holidays for the independent single traveller.
Our goal was to create a five-star experience with exclusive accommodation, privacy and exquisite architecture.
The vision to create Youphoria started in 2005 when we acquired the plot of land, including the hilltop chapel.
With the Sea View entire project funded by the family, with a small subsidy from the EU. Building works started in January 2010 and the first stage was completed in May 2012 ready for that season.
The final phase of the project was completed in May 2015, with the central building which hosts our reception office, wine room and a fully-equipped kitchen ready for our guests. An outdoor venue space has a large pergola with a seating area to take advantage of the sea view, while other facilities include a modern and relaxing holistic therapy treatment room.
We have project managed and maintain everything you see ourselves.
Over the past two years, we have added three Beach Front villas on the shoreline at Korfalonas, which were completed for our first guests to arrive in July 2017.
At Youphoria, we engage heavily with the Kissamos community with all out staff living locally and we support local businesses as much as we possibly can.
