With just 17 rooms, Perivolas is the perfect place to find your inner calm, relax and enjoy the unforgettable scenery.
By Federico Tibytt
Perivolas is a bucolic tourist resort, perched on the gentle slope of one of the hills of Santorini, that retrieves the architectural and decorative traditions of the ancient civilizations that once occupied these latitudes to offer a unique minimalist style. The strategic setting is perfect to find your inner calm, relax and enjoy the stunning scenery.
With only 17 rooms, the Perivolas complex was built on 300 years old caves located on a cliff above the island’s famous caldera. The old constructions were recovered by the Psychas family over the last decades and decorated with the typical Cycladic aesthetics. The style is characterized by large open spaces, thick walls and vaulted ceilings coated with a satin-textured white paint.
The rooms and suites at the resort are delicately adorned with local craftwork, such as bright colored hand-woven rugs and simple but elegant wooden furniture. In Perivolas, the goal is to deliver a relaxed connection with the environment, which is one of the reasons for the absence of electronic entertainment devices in the rooms and suites.
In the luxury suites, the spacious interiors have access to spacious panoramic terraces with private hot tubs and solariums, while the bathrooms in the suites offer wellness amenities including saunas, Jacuzzis and power showers.
One of the most attractive accommodations is the Perivolas Suite: its ample terrace has a spectacular infinity pool surrounding the room, with a covered area and an outdoor lounge.
When it comes to common amenities, the complex boasts an infinity pool that seems to merge with the Aegean Sea and has been described as one of the most spectacular swimming pools in the planet. Also, the resort's wellness center features a sauna, steam room, showers, massage room and a varied menu of body treatments by professional therapists.
At the helm of the poolside restaurant is a Greek chef specialized in local cuisine, who prepares traditional dishes with fresh seasonal ingredients. Another of the resort’s gastronomic attraction is its impressive wine cellar, which boasts excellent international brands as well as superb Greek wines.
Thanks to its proximity to the city of Oia, Perivolas Resort is poised to offer an extensive selection of leisure activities including speed boating, sailing, and all kinds of water sports, including diving. The island of Santorini is one of the main destinations on the continent for this sport.
With its unique minimalist style and location in an authentic earthly paradise, the Perivolas resort brings us the perfect opportunity to relax and unwind from everyday life in an environment of exclusivity, not easy to find in today’s modern resorts. ■
