Perivolas by Manos and his wife Nadia located at the entrance of the village of Oia, on the cliffside overlooking the caldera in Santorini, Greece. In the 19th century the Psychas family, like many other Santorini families, developed through trade in the noted wines of the island a connection with Odessa on the Black Sea. Manos Psychas, a sea captain, was born in Odessa, but when his job as captain of the Greek navy brought him to Santorini in the late 1950s he determined to renew his ties with his family’s island. In 1969 Manos and his wife Nadia purchased a piece of a cliff with cave dwellings and stables in the Perivolas area of the cliff top village of Oia. They had the vision of creating an idyllic retreat on their beloved island. Faithful to the tradition of Santorini’s unique architecture they have restored a group of 300-year-old caves that were once the homes of local fishermen and farmers. With the help of native craftsmen and using the local stone, this historical setting has been gradually transformed into a luxurious complex of 20 very individual suites. This was the beginning of Perivolas.
