Now here is a boutique hotel with a difference! Perivolas, on the Greek Island of Santorini is the ultimate in laid back luxury. Poised on the cliff high above the Aegean, this intimate escape is designed as a place where you can let the rest of the world slip away. Originally designed as a family home, Perivolas still feels like a private residence. Interiors embrace Cycladic in style, with its organic forms and smooth surfaces. Breezy rooms feature sculpted stone walls, vaulted ceilings pierced by skylights and beds built into snug alcoves, adorned with a posy of hand-picked flowers. Niches and archways are scooped out of whitewashed walls, low-slung sofas offset by hand-woven rugs and cushions in vivid fuschia and lilac. Timeless and quietly glamorous, interiors are pared down so that nothing distracts from the show-stopping views.
Here's a chic, little 'Missoni' style jersey dress that would fit very snugly into any suitcase! A versatile little number perfect for poolside lounging, going out for a bite of lunch or doing an afternoon's sightseeing. Change into some wedge heels, throw some Chanel shimmer lipstick in a bright pink clutch and you're ready for an alfresco dinner overlooking the water on a balmy, summer's evening!
With a holiday to the Greek Islands it always promises freshly caught seafood straight from the fisherman's boat. It doesn't get better (and healthier) than grilled fish that literally melts in your mouth, a Greek salad and a glass of chilled white wine. I have very fond memories of lunches at little restaurants built right on the jetty that are perched there just waiting for the day's fresh catch!
