Rustic charm meets modern luxury at Perivoli Country Hotel, an oasis in the Greek hills
High above the coastal city of Nafplio, perched atop a verdant hillside is the Perivoli Country Hotel and Retreat. A sanctuary of tranquillity so divine that it doesn’t seem real. The landscape is undeniably breathtaking, but the hotel itself is not easily outshined. Its grand country house exterior is balanced by a minimal, modern interior that retains many traditional features. In the reception, a high beamed ceiling arches elegantly over the cosy lounge complete with a heavy stone fireplace. Outside, the patio boasts a pristine swimming pool beside which guests can eat, drink and relax all day.
At Perivoli Country Hotel, eating and drinking well is of primordial importance. The Farm to Table restaurant is resolutely committed to using sustainable and local produce. Sommeliers are always on hand to suggest pairings, as well as organize tantalizing tours through the surrounding vineyards.
