I have to say that we stayed here two times, with two years in between, and I miss it terribly!!! I wish they had a 6 star rating for "best ever", because this place would be it. Unbelievably stunning views, peaceful, magical, romantic, serene, indulgent, warm, inviting, delicious, relaxing. I can only think of one place in the world that would pull me into a plane and entice me back for thousands of dollars in airplane and transfer fees, and Perivolas would be it! The "rooms" are caves that were dug out of the side of the hill and lived in by fishermen and were winery storage at one point. Now the "rooms" are like being inside the womb of the side of the earth. You are literally inside the side of the island, and when you open your front door you are standing on a flattened part of tiled dirt that is cut into the side of the island hill! Unreal. Just make sure you do not get the rooms to either side of the office, or your experience will be different. Still nice, but less romantic. We stayed in one of those rooms for a few nights, but it was worth the transfer to upgrade. I am sure now this would not be possible, as they book months in advance now. The breakfast is world class and included, and the drinks by the poolside are just this side of decadent. The pool is one of the islands first infinity pools ever, and they did it just right. Not too flashy, and has the feel of being inside a natural hillside pool. The service is impeccable. The town of Oia is charming, artistic, and unreal in it's charm & beauty. Eating in a restaurant under the full moon overlooking the water, with a volcanic island in the center, has got to be on the top of any romantic's bucket list. Not too mention the tales of Atlantis - they seem to whisper in the wind here no matter how much of a non believer you may be. Do go often into town, and bring extra spending money because you'll need it! Our home has some wonderful memories of this place that I would not trade for anything. The only big advice for staying here would be not to arrive during the Cruise ship season. If you're ok with weather which may not always be perfect, late May is a great month and the prices are more reasonable here (and all over the island). Make sure you spend at least 5 nights here. Once you arrive, you'll want to cancel other reservations and won't want to go anywhere else!!!
