This world-class small luxury inn perched on the cliffs high above the Aegean Sea is a romantic hideaway in its own private Garden of Eden. It is but a short walk from Oia, the most charming village on the island, and offers a tranquil oasis far removed from the stresses of everyday life.
From the stone terrace of each house guests experience a breathtaking panorama, from the azure sky above to the shimmering waters below, framed by a backdrop of brilliant white cave dwellings carved into red cliffs.
Meticulously landscaped grounds provide a mixture shade and sun. Colorful flowers bloom everywhere, punctuating the bright white of the buildings and the cool green of the trees with geranium, fuchsia and bougainvillea.
The meditative silence is enriched with the sound of the waves lapping on the volcanic shore and the gentle purring of a fishing boat as it glides across the Caldera. Perivolas' infinity pool, which appears to merge with the glinting blue waters of the see, completes the refreshment of body and soul.
A place incomparably situated to watch the ever-changing light of day, culminating in the spectacular sunset over Oia
