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.

Villa Charisma with heated pool: Polemarchi Vacation Rental by Owner Listing 1029327ha

This fine villa has a spacious, natural stone terrace which dominates the front of the property. The private infinity pool, plastered with a characteristic Cimentogonia surface, has full width Roman steps from which you can admire the inspiring views of the Aegean Sea. The outdoor area is a large factor in the design of the villa with much indoor space flowing through to external space through either private balconies or terraces. Cozy yet elegant, the large outdoor dining area hosts a specifically designed pergola that gives you sunshine but also a little shade for hotter parts of the day. The gardens have been thoughtfully planted with endemic shrubs, flowers and trees which are complimented by traditional stone walls that blend into the natural environment. The living space is structured over two distinct floors and throughout the property, there are many large “picture” windows which allow sunlight to flood in and provide panoramic views from any room. Access is via the ground floor which opens to a spacious living room boasting a modern and eco-friendly fireplace and many architectural twists. The kitchen area is open plan with stylish and practical Corian work surfaces with an informal dining area and top of the range appliances. A free standing metal staircase leads to the master bedroom on the first floor which has a spacious en-suite bathroom with a relaxing Jacuzzi bath, and wall to wall windows providing uninterrupted views of the Aegean Sea. There is a large balcony to the front and access to a unique private outdoor seating space to the side with grand sea views. The ground floor double/twin bedroom has a separate entrance with large doors that grant access to the panoramic terrace. It also has an en-suite bathroom with a walk-in Spa shower area. The elegance and comfort of villa Charisma is the ideal choice for two couples looking to share company but yet wanting to respect their own privacy.
