Details for holiday villa Charisma, 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 5, 2 Bathrooms, 1 Separate WC

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.

Lovely villas and fantastic service - great stay!!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 04-Aug-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2013
We stayed in Villa Abyss for two weeks. The service was excellent from the moment we arrived and were met by the owner who gave us lots of suggestions for days out and places to eat. The villa was beautifully cleaned all the time, fresh towels and bedding twice a week too.

The villa is lovely and modern, everything in good condition and stylish. There is a dishwasher, full size fridge and freezer, washing machine, cooker and microwave. There is even a juicer and sandwich toaster and we made use of the BBQ. There is an iphone/ipad music dock as well as a TV with just a few channels on. The wifi was reliable, but a bit slow - fine for emails, internet and music streaming but not for big downloads such as films. I did struggle to use the corkscrew, and pair of scissors would be useful to take.

The villa is two separate buildings. In one the sitting room and kitchen, with a toilet/shower in this building. The bedroom building has a safe and another bathroom - a Jacuzzi bath and hand held shower attachment. There is facility to sleep in the sitting room making this a three person villa, but to be honest given the layout and the size of the villa, it is really only suitable for two people for any length of time.

The outside space is lovely. The pool was a good size and regularly cleaned, the place really was kept spotless. There is a lovely seating area overlooking the bay below. You are up on a hillside so take a cardigan for the odd windy evening, even in July!

There are other villas so you do not feel you are totally away from it all, but they are situated so you are not particularly overlooked and all the villas are up a track a few 100m away from the road. It was quiet and quite rural - yet with great access to the main coastal road from where you can drive to anywhere (you do need a car). Just up the road is a mini market and bakery. Kissamos is only a five minute drive away where there is quite a large Carrefour so we didn't struggle to get anything we needed. There are also some nice restaurants where the owners were lovely and welcoming. Try The Cellar on the sea front. Drive towards Falassarna and go to Spilios (10 mins) as well as The Gramboussa in Kaliviani (10 mins). Chania is 40 mins away, ask about the best place to park and recommendations from the owner.

A lovely set of villas, beautifully kept, nothing is too much trouble, location is convenient with plenty to do, yet not in an area that is too touristy. Would highly recommend.

Awesome vacation experience

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 05-Jun-2013
  • Date of Stay: May 2013
Youphoria Villas are at a very relaxing environment and there is a great privacy even in between villas. Facilities are more than satisfactory and made us feel like home. Housekeeping was done everyday thoroughly including swimming pool. Vassilis met us with very warm and friendly welcome and gave detailed information about the modern villas. His recommendations about western Crete and the contemporary villa helped us to spend six great days in our honeymoon. I'd definitely recommend Youphoria Villas who is looking for a different vacation experience.

A wonderful and luxury design villa

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 26-Nov-2012
  • Date of Stay: Jul 2012
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. 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.

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.
