Perivolas Traditional Houses occupy a wonderful spot just back from the beautiful village of Oia, on the lip of Santorini's celebrated caldera. The property is a small hamlet of traditional whitewashed cave-houses which have been converted into superb suites by their owner, Kostis Psychas, who has done a fantastic job conserving the traditional elements of each house whilst transforming them into cool, 21st century chic abodes.

Hotel Perivolas's luxury cave-carved rooms are super-comfortable with mattresses on low, traditional sleeping platforms, with the old wooden window frames preserved to capture the amazing vistas like high-quality modern art. The spectacular swimming pool gently follows the cliff edge and offers stunning views over the Aegean giving a sense of tranquillity and calm.


The gorgeous, curvaceous infinity pool is almost over-photographed, whilst the simple taverna-style restaurant serves creative and delicious Greek dishes with a modern twist. Best of all, Kostis' team of staff is the friendliest and most welcoming group on the island.
