Agean Sea, Perivolas hideaway

Location: Greece, Island of Therassia

There are two hotels here owned and designed by Costis Psychas which are my current obsession!

1) Perivolas hideaway (the converted pumice stone warehouse)

2) Perivolas Oia Santorini,300 year old converted caves, which were the homes of local farmers and fishermen.

This building was originally a warehouse built for a pumice mine.

Part of the building was built in the
water so the boasts could easily carry away the pumice
(during the 1860’s). The façade of the house is constructed of
volcanic rock gathered on the property.

The owner Costis Psychas along with local craftsmen  painstakingly re built this abandoned building. the details  are fantastic  with rounded walls  and clean woodwork  that best highlights the views of  the sea.

love the floors of hand pressed cement and sand.

All the work was done by local craftsmen.
