Perivolas is considered to be the hotel that made Oia a major destination. Its minimalist style is typical of Santorini. The suites are carved into the cliff overlooking the Aegean. The infinity pool seems to go on for infinity. Located at the edge of Oia, this hotel is very private. You’ll be able to sunbathe in peace.

It has been run by the Psychas family since it opened in 1983. Perivolas is a very striking place: the suites and rooms are carved stone by stone from the landscape.

The hotel has a collection of speedboats and you can arrange private boat tours around the island. There’s also a small gym and spa.

LGBT Rights in Greece

The state of LGBTQ+ rights has made significant progress in recent years in Greece, although hardships and inequalities still persist in areas outside of the major cities. The country has undergone a widespread legal and societal transformation that has begun to improve the rights and protections for LGBTQ+ individuals.

When it comes to legal advancements, Greece decriminalized same-sex sexual activity in 1951, and in 2015, the Greek Parliament passed a law that recognized civil partnerships for same-sex couples, granting them legal recognition and many of the same rights as married heterosexual couples. However, marriage equality has still not been achieved, as same-sex marriages are not legally recognized.

The legal system in Greece prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in employment and certain other areas. However, LGBTQ+ individuals continue to face discrimination and social stigma in various aspects of their lives. Homophobic and transphobic attitudes persist in some parts of society, especially in more remote and rural areas.

On a positive note, Athens, the capital city, has a vibrant LGBTQ+ community with a thriving nightlife scene, with an annual Pride parade that attracts thousands of participants from across the globe. LGBTQ+ organizations and advocacy groups in Greece actively work to promote equal rights and social acceptance.

Though LGBTQ+ travelers can enjoy visiting all areas of Greece’s diverse landscape, the gorgeous island of Mykonos is a particular favorite amongst the LGBTQ+ community. In Mykonos, you’ll find a plethora of gay-focused bars and clubs as well as some of Europe’s most beautiful gay beaches.

Accommodation

Carved from the rocks, the studios and suites take the form of luxury caves. Rather than the classic blues and whites of Santorini, the colour scheme incorporates vivid pink and lilac.

Be warned Netflix addicts, there are no TVs! But you won’t want to watch TV when you’re surrounded by so much natural beauty.
