We stayed for 4 nights in this dream location and it was perfect. Waking up and being able to enjoy the sun, the view and the house right away is priceless. Also, the beaches close by are wonderful and something you would only expect at exotic places. Hope to come back soon. Thank you for being such a great host and available anytime.

"Heaven on earth...this must be the place."



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.

Sebastien ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ): Highly recommended place

Giannis and Vassilis are great professionals and they perfectly know the meaning of "Customer Care".

The house we rented (Villa Charisma) was very nice and comfortable for our family. Top equipped and furnished house. The view is superb any time of the day, without mentionning the sunset...The swimming pool is as in reallity as nice as on the pictures on Youphoria's web site and the surroundings  are very charming (flowers, plants,...).  Being in the swimming pool is a sensory voyage on its own: cigadas sons all day long, smells of lavender , rosemary etc... Quite inspiring for adults and children.

Our two daughters , 6 and 10 years old were delighted to be quite independant from from the main house. Real holidays for them... few meters away from their parents! :) Very safe though!

The location is very attractive because this is not too much touristic and there are three beautifull beaches from 15mn to 1h15 far from the house.

This is really a place you would select to enjoy inspiring and  relaxing holidays.

I can only recommend Youphoria.

RE VALLET ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ): DREAM

We stay in Youphoria last summer in August and it was PERFECT!

The house was very pleasant. I'm french architect and really the villa is beautiful and really well conceived.

We spent 2 weeks with ours childrens, 7, 3 and 1. The childrens love the swimming pool, even if our daughter had only one year, the swimming pool is conceived with walking which allow to remain feet in the water but always under surveillance.

And I think it was the most beautiful holidays. We travel a lot, and we known when the place is a Dream. Every day we spent the afternoon in Falassarna Beach, a paradise. Vassilis, the owner of the Villas is just Perfect. He take lot of time for us, he showed us the region, the ruins of Falassarna. He invited us on a traditionnal party village… Always there to answer our questions.

The daily household is made by very nice cleaning ladies and really discreet. In summary Holidays of dreams.

Dennis Noordhoek ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ): A wonderful luxury place, in an unspoiled part of Crete

After a long search for a special holiday accommodation on Crete, we finally found Youphoria Villa’s via the website of homeaway and we decided to rent villa Abbys early July 2012. The villa and location exceeded our expectations. On our arrival, we were welcomed by Vassilis, the owner of the Villas, who showed us around on the premises and familiarized us with the high tech villa. Our villa consisted of two connected buildings, with in one part the modern kitchen, separate bathroom with shower, living room and direct access to the private infinity pool and lounge terrace. The other building housed the bedroom and a large en-suite design bathroom with Jacuzzi.  The villas are located on a hill near the village of Kissamos, and offer a wonderful view over the bay and surrounding landscape. There are around 6 villas on the property, but the good thing is that they are located in such a way that you don´t feel like being on a holiday resort, but have the privacy of your own private villa. The location is perfect to discover the unspoiled beaches and nature the Western part of Crete has to offer, but is at the same time not far away from the more touristy villages like Platanias. I strongly recommend Youporia villa’s to anyone who is looking for luxury and design in a beautiful relaxed setting.

 'Youphoria villas far exceeded our expectations in every aspect. The villas were modern and exceptional in their setting, and a delight to stay at. Beautiful beaches are a short drive away, and quaint restaurants are even closer. I thoroughly recommend this magnificent accommodation to anyone and everyone.' Nicole

We stayed at Youphoria in villa Symphony in August 2012. The villa is superb with an amazing view and sea scape. The villa itself is very clean, very modern with a great pool, sunbeds and covered area with seating. It has a well equipped kitchen and two good sized bedrooms with great bathrooms. 

Close by are a petrol station and two mini markets as well as a bakery and within a few kilometres each way are a good number of tavernas. I would recommend the villas to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday close to most amenities and in good style. The owner Vassilis is always available via phone should you need him and looks after his clients well.
