Perched on a hillside along the beautiful north-west coast of Crete close to the town of Kissamos, Youphoria Villas offer panoramic views of the Gramvousa peninsular and clear blue waters of Kissamos Bay, with the White Mountains to the south providing a spectacular backdrop.
The gated property is surrounded by lush olive groves and endemic flora, including thyme and rosemary. Three of the villas arebuilt around an old Chapel which dominates the hilltop while otherscascade down into the foothills.
Each villa has its own individually-designed living space with the emphasis on outdoor entertaining, dining and relaxing. The award-winning COCO Mat soft furnishing has been carefully chosen to provide the maximum comfort, combined with the use of natural and raw materials.
The excellent location means guests are close to many of the highlights of western Crete: five minutes’ drive away you will discover the impressive golden sands and turquoise waters of Falasarna beach (voted one of the top five beaches in Greece), with its nearby archaeological site; there are numerous other sandy beaches within easy reach of the villas with the closest being Viglia beach (1.5km); and the nearby town of Kissamos has a plethora of shops, cafes and tavernas.
You can take a boat trip (one hour) to the uninhabited pirate island of Gramvousa and spend the day swimming, snorkelling or exploring the ruins of the Venetian Fortress. The boat then takes you to Balos Bay with its warm shallow waters and amazing pink sand. And less than an hour south of Youphoria Villas is Elafonissi beach (one of the world’s top 10 beaches).
For the more adventurous Youphoria Villas guests, there is the opportunity to walk the famous Samaria Gorge which at 17kmis the longest in Europe.
In addition, with our concierge-led service, we can make a dinner reservation for you at one of the excellent restaurants nearby to experience traditional Cretan cuisine, including locally-caught fresh fish and seafood, and sample traditional dishes from the world-famous healthy Mediterranean diet.
Take advantage of our local knowledge and let us share some of our secrets of western Crete with you.
