Staying at Istoria Hotel | Perívolos Beach, Greece

Located on the black volcanic sand of Perivolos Beach in the southern part of the island of Santorini one finds Istoria Hotel, a 12-suite retreat and mansion. The place is a blend of classic and contemporary aesthetics and has everything you need for a relaxed stay. This blend is caused by the premises originally housing 5 stables where the former owner used to keep her beloved horses. Some of these elements of the original estate are being incorporated into the suites and is part of creating the authentic atmosphere Istoria is known for. This place is truly designed to function as the personal recreative oasis we all need.
