Hotel: Perivolas

Perivolas is the ultimate in laidback luxury.  Poised on the cliff high above the AEgean, this intimate escape is designed as a place where you can let the rest of the world slip away.  Built amphitheatrically, Perivolas’ secluded location combines expansive views with the luxury of absolute tranquility.  It’s just a short walk from Oia, the most beautiful village on Greece’s most romantic and dramatic island, Santorini. 


Terraced gardens spill down the slope to the infinity pool, which seems to slip off the rim of the cliff and bleed into the blue horizon.  Only the occassional toll of church bells or the whistle of a fishing boat far below breaks the meditative silence.  It is easy to linger here all day, watching the changing light until the sun settles into the sea. 


In 1969, Manos Psychas and his wife Nadia, purchased a piece of cliff with cave dwellings and stables in the Perivolas area of the cliff top village of Oia.  They had the vision of creating an idyllic retreat on their beloved island.  Faithful to the tradition of Santorini’s unique architecture they have restored a group of 300 year old caves that were once the homes of local fishermen and farmeres.  With the help of native craftsmen and using the local stone this historical setting has been gradually transformed into a luxurious complex of 20 very individual suites.  

This was the beginning of Perivolas…
