If you want to unwind and recharge, look no further. This family-run hideaway is a labour of love – the owners built it themselves, with great respect for local traditions.

It’s blissful tranquillity – an aura of absolute calm surrounds this secluded hideaway. There are sweeping views of the caldera and Oia whichever way you look.

Carved out of the terraced cliff face, each of the 20 studios and suites is unique in layout and location. Splashes of fuchsia and lilac brighten up the dramatically sparse, whitewashed interiors.

The infinity pool has spawned countless imitators, but none can rival it.

Phenomenal views of the flooded volcanic caldera make it hard to leave your private patio. But there’s a superb spa, gym, yoga shala and lap pool should you feel the urge to move.

Surrounding area

On the outskirts of Oia, a picture-postcard village on Santorini’s northern tip, Perivolas is a safe distance from the coach parties that descend on Oia every sunset.

Fine dining and shopping opportunities are a 15-minute stroll past grand sea captains’ mansions and the cave dwellings of their former crew.
