Perivolas is an immaculate Aegean retreat and one of the most famous hotels in Greece.
The complex of houses is built into the red volcanic slopes high above the Aegean Sea and a short walk from the charming village of Oia - a perfectly idyllic and quiet location.
The rooms are actually a group of centuries-old cave dwellings that were once the homes, wineries and stables of indigenous fishermen and farmers. They are now transformed into a variety of stylish, modern studios and suites characterised by smoothly curved, whitewashed walls, vaulted ceilings, and domed bathrooms. All are air-conditioned, furnished with simple elegance and have terraces with breathtaking views of Santorini's famous caldera.
Perivolas is surrounded by landscaped grounds containing vineyards, wild fig trees and colourful bougainvillea, creating a tranquil oasis. The poolside café-bar makes the perfect place to relax and watch the spectacular sunsets with an evening cocktail, while the beautiful new restaurant has a wider variety of delicious dishes. Another place to relax at Perivolas is at the newly renovated wellness area and fully equipped gym, where there is a steam room and sauna, and a variety of massages and spa treatments available on request.
The hotel's infinity pool must rank as one of the most stunning in the world.
