Enjoy a serene situation upon Santorini’s south coast, the peaceful and picturesque village of Perivolos is famed for its stunning sunsets and dramatic volcanic beaches. Tree lined streets harbour traditional whitewashed houses, the rows of which are punctuated with traditional taverns and quaint churches. An interminable stretch of black sand beach provides a perfect place in with the relax and revitalise, while an appetising array of restaurants will appease appetites for gastronomic authenticity.
Perivolos boasts the island’s longest stretch of beach, a sprawling coast of black sand that glistens and glows in the scorching afternoon sun. The crystal clear waters of the ocean are ideal and idyllic places in which to snorkel or swim, and an impressive selection of water sports is offered by the seafront stalls.
The ancient site of Akrotini is hailed as Greece’s equivalent to Italy’s Pompeii; the ancient archaeological site holds the excavated relics of a town destroyed a volcano eruption. Masked in mystery, the abandoned village exudes an eerie air only heightened by the perfectly preserved town square and magnificent murals. Located only a short drive from Perivolos, this ancient wonder is a must see attraction in the area.
Enjoy a delightful and dynamic dining experience in one of the island’s most critically acclaimed establishments. As its name suggests, Seaside enjoys a luscious location upon the beach and serves gorgeous Greek gastronomy; specialities include fine wines and fresh crab salad, both of which maximise the proximity of prime ingredients.
