About Perivolas Lifestyle Houses
Lovingly restored to reach the height of immaculate, sophisticated chic, Perivolas is a genuine one-off. Three-hundred year old caves, once home to local fishermen and farmers have been converted into traditional apartments and gain a simple elegance from natural sweeping curves, vaulted roofs and domed ceilings.
The interiors are reminiscent of the work of Cesar Manrique - all organic forms and smooth surfaces that make the most of a volcanic landscape. Breezy rooms are naturally cooled by sculpted stone walls and vaulted ceilings pierced by skylights. Beds are built into snug alcoves, whilst niches and archways are scooped out of whitewashed walls. Low-slung sofas are offset by hand-woven rugs and cushions in vivid fuschia and lilac.
From its position high on the cliffs, Perivolas provides incredible views across the azure Aegean Sea.
