Fodor's Review

A cliff-hanging, much-photographed infinity pool that makes you feel you could easily swim off the edge into the caldera's blue bay 1,000 feet below is but one of the highlights at a luxury getaway that even the locals respect (big compliment). These 20 houses, all connected by flights of stairs, have been converted from old wineries and other structures in archetypal skafta (vaulted cave) fashion, with clever nooks for beds, sculpted walls, and full kitchens; all are simply but stunningly furnished with handmade wooden pieces and weavings. Each house has its own terrace, and two have private pools. Perivolas also offers the ultimate retreat: a four-bedroom, waterside hideaway across the caldera on the island of Therasia.

The view is everything

We stayed at Perivolas for 3 nights in May 2007 in a studio. Everyone who worked there was wonderful to us and the service was excellent at all times. It is a very pretty place...with lots of potted plants and flowers and landscaping wherever possible on the rocky cliff. Their restaurant is outstanding...available only to hotel guests. My complaints about the room have to do with the bathroom plumbing which should have been higher quality for

accommodations that expensive. But the major attraction of this place is the fabulous VIEW of the Caldera. Combine this view with the outstanding food served overlooking the caldera and it makes you never want to leave.
