In the midst of the Aegean Sea rests boutique hotel Perivolas on the chic island of Santorini. Formed entirely of volcanic rock and steeped in eons of history, the island is home to former fishermanâs cottages elegantly carved high into Santoriniâs hillside.
Just a short walk from the charming town of Oia, Perivolas' cluster of softly contoured caves totals 19 unique cocoon-like suites, each with breathtaking views overlooking the sun-soaked caldera. The room-s sun dappled white walls and sensual curves are the perfect backdrop to Santorini's tranquilizing sea. White cotton linens beautifully offset baskets of Mediterranean flowers and without a television in sight, the quiet whisper of the waves lapping below lulls you to sleep.
The handcrafted bedrooms vary, but a bad room simply does not exist at Perivolas. For those seeking privacy, Suite 15 features a spacious and secluded outdoor terrace, while the much-coveted Perivolas Suite boasts its very own pool.
With a full service spa, impressive infinity pool and an exclusive restaurant serving a feast of Mediterranean delights and Greek delicacies, Perivolas offers both modern and ancient beauty.
Prices start at €368, contact Mr & Mrs Smith for reservations.
