Wer etwas ganz besonderes, abseits des Massentourismus sucht, ist hier genau richtig. Hier kann man wunderschöne Sonnenuntergänge auf der Terasse genießen und wird morgends durch ein Vogelkonzert in den Tag begleitet. Man wohnt in liebevoll restaurierten und charaktervoll eingerichteten Häusern und begegnet auf dem gesamten Gelände imposanten Kunstwerken. Dabei wird man perfekt durch die unglaublich nette Verwalterin begleitet, welche immer einen Insider Tipp hat oder einen tollen lokalen Wein für den Kühlschrank besorgt.
Immer wieder gerne!!!
A heavenly home away from home
My husband and I have spent a month at Peralta every summer for 10 years, and we will be there again this year. We love its peaceful serenity. The path to Casa Nuova from the car park is a pleasure in itself. It's filled with birdsong and cicadas, and lined with sweet-smelling jasmine, fig trees, and bougainvillea. Casa Nuova, where we always stay, is ideal for us, with its large, wisteria-covered terrazza and its spectacular view of the valley below and, on clear days, the Mediterranean Sea. Peralta was once home to sculptor Fiore Hendriquez, and her sculptures keep the artistic spirit of the place alive. All of the stone houses at Peralta are comfortably furnished with rustic antiques and have private terraces and beautiful views of the valley. The hike up stone steps takes you to the swimming pool and an even more expansive view.
Dinah Voisin, the owner, and Kate Simova, Peralta's manager, are a delight and extremely helpful and accommodating in making sure that your stay is everything you want it to be.
A Magical Place to Stay....
We stayed here for five days in May and it was amazing. A real get away from it all retreat hidden in the mountains, great to relax, unwind and appreciate the important things in life. The views from the terrace were stunning, as were the sunsets that we watched most nights with a glass of Prosecco, the views from the bedroom were also stunning and a real treat to wake up to. The atmosphere was relaxed and although there were quite a few other people staying we felt like it was only us. The only thing I would say is make sure you have a very small car and get the extra insurance, we couldn't get ours up the last bit of mountain road, but it was fine leaving it in the small hamlet at the bottom and walking up, good exercise to burn off all the delicious food and no matter how late we returned it was always light enough to see and a couple of nights we had the fire flys to guide our way, a very magical place....
Wow - a very special place
We have just returned from staying at Casa Nuova at Peralta for 6 nights. It is all that the other positive reviews and the web site description says it is. It feels very rustic but with modern fittings and it is is furnished and kitted out more like a home than a rental property. We loved the antique furniture, quality bedlinen, sculptures, and paintings.
Whilst only one bedroom, plus dressing area, Casa Nuova is really a smalll house with a large living area and large terrace with stunning views. Plenty of space
It was very peaceful despite being full and the staff are there and helpful if you need them but don't bother you if you are self sufficient.
The only challenge - which is part of its appeal is the last 100 metres of the road up to Peralta.We had a largish low suspension car which only just made it around the hairpin, steep and narrow bends - though you can park lower down and walk up.
The swimming pool is located in a fantastic position but is too small for serious swimmers.
Peralta is truly a one off very memorable experience.
Fantastic Tuscan Hideaway
This place is fab, quite as good as it looks. I rented Casa Nuova for a week in June. Though it's only a one bedroom house it feels very spacious. Huge pergola. Stunning views across the valley all the way to the Med from all rooms. Peace and quiet..Probably the most private feeling house in the village. Visitors should be ready for the very precipitous road up to the village - but you soon get used to it. The communal bar area is lovely in the evening and has even better views. Staff very friendly, make you feel like an honoured guest. Good shops in nearby Camaiore, nice little pizzeria in Prado di Sotto (15 min walk). Pietrasanta a lovely town. A car a necessity.
This was the 6th time I've been to Peralta so I more or less knew what the deal would be... fantastic as always. However, I never stayed at Casa Nuova. This year I decided to book the house for our honeymoon and what a treat it was. Even after coming here for a few years now, this place managed to amaze me. It's very spacious and all the necessary accomodations are in place. The athmosphere is very special and the view from the private terrace is stunning. It's also an excellent place to have a nice honeymoon barbeque :) ! If you want something special and relaxing, this is the place!
Thank you for your appreciation of Casa Nuova. It is such a special house - mainly because Fiore would use it as her personal guest house and so put a lot of her sculpture in it, also books, antique furniture etc. She also restored it in such an unusual and interesting way. Glad you enjoyed it!
