Perivolas is located atop cliffs overlooking Santorini's famous Caldera, at the northernmost tip of the island, on the edge of the village of Oia.

Built amphitheatrically, Perivolas’ secluded location combines expansive views with the luxury of absolute tranquility.


To protect guests’ privacy, fragrant fig trees, red-hot geraniums, and brilliant bougainvillea surround the houses. Terraced gardens spill down the slope to the infinity pool, which seems to slip off the rim of the cliff and bleed into the blue horizon.


Only the occasional toll of church bells or the purring of a fishing boat far below breaks the meditative silence. It is easy to linger here all day, watching the changing light until the sun settles into the sea.


Santorini international airport (JTR) is approximatively 30 minutes away from the hotel (20 km).


Complimentary transfers with Perivolas' driver will be provides for guests.

 Perivolas History


In the 19th century the Psychas family, like many other Santorini families, developed through trade in the noted wines of the island a connection with Odessa on the Black Sea.


Manos Psychas, a sea captain, was born in Odessa, but when his job as captain of the Greek navy brought him to Santorini in the late 1950s he determined to renew his ties with his family’s island. In 1969 Manos and his wife Nadia , purchased a piece of cliff with cave dwellings and stables in the Perivolas area of the cliff top village of Oia. They had the vision of creating an idyllic retreat on their beloved island. Faithful to the tradition of Santorini’s unique architecture they have restored a group of 300 year-old caves that were once the homes of local fishermen and farmers.


With the help of native craftsmen and using the local stone this historical setting has been gradually transformed into a luxurious complex of 20 very individual suites.


This was the beginning of Perivolas.
