Lose yourself in a laid-back reverie at Perivolas Boutique Hotel
Imagine rising from your bed, walking barefoot, across the smooth white stone floor to the mouth of the restored cave in which you slept, which opens onto a view of the Aegean so magnificent that it makes you stop for a moment and ask: Is this real?
It is real. Perivolas Boutique Hotel is carved into a series of ancient caves that make up the sea-facing side of this village teetering above the caldera. The hotel’s predominant colour is a serene, almost sparkling white, glowing from the walls. The caves’ walls and ceilings arch elegantly over a decor that’s a laid-back luxury to a tee. Think big squashy pillows in jewel tones, distressed wood and baskets of flowers. The hosts have curated the perfect atmosphere to provide a backdrop for moments of divine tranquillity.
Outside your room, you’ll find a glittering infinity pool, a wellness centre and a gym with a view of the Sea. The hotel’s restaurant serves up fresh Greek dishes, refined and innovated to delectable levels. Infinite moments or dream-like relaxation await. Yet it’s all real.
