Once a small village, Perissa, on the southern Aegean coast, has retained its traditional charm, and it is now also home Hotel Drossos. This four-star hotel stands just 250m from the beach with black sand, and the virgin beach (the second best according to the survey 2011 of www.newsit.gr), and it is an ideal base from which to explore the island, stopping off for refreshment at the many local taverns. But you may prefer simply to relax by the pool. It feels like a semi-secret of sun and greenery, soothing after beach relaxation. This is a handsome hotel with an air of specific Santorini style, being run by the 16 year tourism business experience manager. Its 26 spacious standard, superior rooms and maisonettes, each with its own balcony, are set in 3 buildings, separated from each other.
