Paradise hewn on history
This hotel is located on a secluded cliff top that overlooks the Greek island of Santorini. The island is part of a circular archipelago which was formed from volcanic rock following an ancient eruption that is fabled to have destroyed the city of Atlantis. Today, the islands edge around the crest of a mile-deep hole in the ocean floor where you can find premier diving spots. Perivolas is a romantic resort full of terraced gardens and a large infinity pool that melts into the sunset. Your accommodation is designed in the style of the whitewashed heat-reflecting walls of the local villages. Don’t expect a TV/DVD player – this is a place to switch off. The islands have been inhabited for thousands of years and you can explore this vast repository of culture and history during your stay. The local villages are medley of family vineyards and traditional taverns where you can sample the famous Mediterranean lifestyle. The nearby beach offers swimming where you can glide through clear cool waters.
