Travel Tuesday: Perivolas in Oia, Santorini–Greece

Drinks at Perivolas

I have so many photographs from my travels that it can be overwhelming to figure out how to post them on the blog. I though it’d be fun to do a Travel Tuesday post every once in a while to share them with you. I’d love to hear what you think.

This first Travel Tuesday post is from Perivolas Hotel in Santorini. Perivolas is a luxurious and intimate hotel in Oia, with one of the most stunning views of the caldera. It is also well-known for its gorgeous infinity pool. Staying there was out of the question, since it’s quite an expensive hotel. Instead, in the planning stages of my trip to Santorini, I scheduled one evening to watch the sunset from the poolside terrace. The boyfriend and I headed there on the scheduled day, but it turned out to be a cold, rainy, and cloudy day. The weather was not cooperating with my plans for the spectacular sunset I envisioned.

We sat there, staring at our drinks. Suddenly, the clouds parted, and we got a glimpse of the sun setting for a few short minutes. It quickly got darker and colder, so we moved inside the hotel’s quaint restaurant which is located in a converted wine cellar.

Although it was not the stunning sunset that I had expected, it still was a magical evening.

I have loved cooking and baking since I was 5 years old. It was the one activity that I would share with all my extended family. Like most people, I love traveling. I love visiting the markets, exploring unknown ingredients, and bringing them back home with me for inspiration. I find that recipes with simple and pure ingredients yield the best results.

  1. Cecilia … what better day to start talking about your trip to Greece today, March 25, 193 years of independence. It’s a special tribute on this article.
