As you’d expect, Periscope Villa in Santorini commands spectacular views from its hilltop position, overlooking the volcano and the ever-changing Aegean Sea. Privacy is paramount at this five-bedroom ultra-luxe residence and a secret second entrance from the private garage guarantees discretion and security. Traditional Cycladian architecture has been tastefully modernized for the discerning traveler and all home comforts have been provided. Environmental awareness is also evident in the choice of an energy-saving solar powered heating and cooling system.
With an eye on the world around it, Periscope Villa has been designed to make the most of its supreme viewpoint. Serene sunsets can be enjoyed from the copious courtyard and sunny terracotta terrace, studded with deluxe sun loungers and cushioned patio furniture. The curvy pool extends a cool invitation for a refreshing swim, sunlit by day, illuminated by night. After a poolside shower you might be tempted by a game of giant chess or a quick slam dunk on the basketball court. Bright early breakfasts, leisurely lunches and softly lit suppers can all be enjoyed on the courtyard, gathered around the table under a shaded pergola as you look out to sea.
Take a break from the sunshine and retreat indoors to the main living and dining rooms. The nutty sheen of polished wooden floors is enhanced by the light streaming in through half-moon windows set high in the vaulted roof. Pick a book from the well-stacked library shelves and settle in one of the plump sofas or indulge a love of movies and music in the home theater with its full hi-fi sound system. Fix yourself a snack or cool drink in the fully-equipped kitchen, or for an extra cost, a catering service can be provided.
All that fresh sea air is likely to make you sleepy. You can look forward to a good night’s rest in one of five lovely bedrooms. For extra luxury, choose the Master Bedroom, which boasts a deep jetted tub and en-suite bathroom with hi-tech steam-hydro massage shower. You can step out onto the balcony from here and Bedroom Two. Bedroom Three also benefits from a private terrace.
A rental vehicle is recommended for traveling around the locality. If you hop in the car you can be exploring the town of Imeroviglo in less than 5 minutes. There’s a hospital, tennis court and fitness facility within 10 minutes’ drive and it takes 15 minutes to reach the beach and airport.
