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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We spent 3 nights at Charisma villa which is situated on a hill above Kissamos overloking the sea and olive tree fields. The standard of the newly built villas is 5 stars. The interior design is flawless, modern but still cozy. Kitchen is fully equipped with toaster, juicer, oven etc. Grocery store is 5 min.

The outside provides a sun shaded pergola with lots of comfortable seating to enjoy breakfast while taking in the 180 degrees panoramic view. Or to relax during the day.

Service is impeccable: house super clean, pool is taken care of daily.

The owner Vassili is very attentive. He sat down 20 minutes with us to explain the villa and surroundings and chat about Greece and the local culture. The guy seems really motivated to ensure the guests are happy.

Although there are several villas the way they are arranged still ensures you have privacy. That was very important for us and is a big plus.

A trip to Chania for dinner and shopping is a nice change to the calm and rural lifestlye around the villa (45 Min.). We tried 2 restaurants within 5 minutes of the villa, both were excellent.

In contrast to popular tourist destinations in the mediterranean we noticed that the people of Crete are really friendly, easygoing and not trying to ripp you off or sell you stuff you dont want. That made the experience even more enjoyable. We plan to come back with our kids next time.

These holidays were one of the best we have had. The Villa is so beautiful, fantastic vieuws to the sea and the mountains. The owner Vassilis is very friendly and sympathic, also his stuff. The beaches, especially farnafasar are wonderful. The best experience for our family was that all Crete People we met were very very friendly to us- Youphoria stuff, in restaurants, the divingclub in kolympari, the People at the supermarket. Thank you for great holidays! Family Pueffel from Bremen, Germany.

Great impression, wonderful and relaxing stay.

  • 5 out of 5
The property is beautiful, modern, very well made, nice decorated, and has everything what is needed for a stay at the sea-side. The location is also very nice overseeing the bay of Kissamos and a slope of olive trees, very near to Falassarna, Balos and other marvellous beaches. The property is quite and very private. The swimming pool has the right size for a family. The room and garden service is very good and ready to help as needed. We very much enjoyed our stay and are recommending it without hesitation. Also shopping opportunities are easily accessible.

Wonderful time in a perfect location

  • 5 out of 5
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.

Lovely villas and fantastic service - great stay!!

  • 5 out of 5
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.

Ein traumhafter Urlaub

  • 5 out of 5
Wir haben 2 Wochen in der Villa Charisma verbracht. Das Haus ist sehr schön und modern eingerichtet und verfügt auf beiden Etagen über einen genialen Blick auf Meer und Berge.
Ein perfektes Haus, um einen erholsamen Urlaub in luxuriöser Umgebung zu verbringen.
Der Hauseigentümer Vassilis ist sehr nett und hat uns perfekt betreut.

Wir werden bestimmt wiederkommen.

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.
