I could really use a holiday right now! Unfortunately baby Kick is still too little but I am already searching for places where we could go to next year. The Perivolas Resort is one on my wish list of place to stay.

This gorgeous hotel is poised on the cliff high above the Aegean, on the island of Santorini in Greece. The interior is stunning, I love the (subtle) use of color. There are no TVs by the way as it is a place to switch off. A place to read, recharge, relax, sleep, rest, and dream. I am wondering though if they will appreciate quests with small children..

Originally designed as a family home, Perivolas still feels like a private residence. Intimate in scale and atmosphere, every house is different. Built by native craftsmen using local materials, the interiors embody Cycladic style, with its organic forms and smooth surfaces. Breezy rooms are naturally cooled by sculpted stone walls and vaulted ceilings pierced by skylights.

Beds are 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 and nothing disturbs the intensity of the stillness. Simply perfect!
