A great and unusual place, with an awesome view and environment.
When we arrived, after riding through the cool but narrow passage up to the houses, we where welcomed by a really nice and happy team. We got great help to move in with the whole baggage and even the local dogs and cats said hello right away.
We really enjoyed the uniqueness, yet modern and practical of the house, located above a beautiful and green valley. Looks down where awesome and, especially during sunset, just stunning. But it got even better, when we moved up to the pool, located in a stony and grass environment, surrounded by olive trees.
Even our three year old always found something to play with or investigate. There's no playground, but the environment itself makes up for this. Yet, I can imagine with multiple kids, keeping them entertained could be a bit of a challenge.
We really are super thankful for the time and especially for the kindness and help from everyone.
And of you want to leave an impression,bring an inflatable crocodile... 😊
a wonderful place
We had a wonderful time at Peralta.
The location of the house is really outstanding with a beautiful view onto the valley of Camaiore.
The house has so much love for details, the paintings on the ceilings the beautiful rustique kitchen and there is a bathroom for each bedroom.
Even though the drive up to Peralta is a bit of an adventure and we really do recommend a smaller car to go up, we really enjoyed the location as it is so peaceful and quiet. We can surely recommend everyone to go there.
A fine holiday
An excellent house, near Pisa and Lucca and the beach. Ample room for 6 persons in la Foresteria + its annex.
The house is well furnished and has fine terraces.
La torre pendente in Pisa is open again! A must to climb it.
A piece of paradise!
Amazing appartment in idyllic location with spectacular views.
Wonderful walks and close to nearby interesting towns and the seaside. Dinah and her team are very friendly and go out of their way to please. The gorgeous 13century estate is fantastic even though the access us challenging. Definitely worth a stay.
Peralta was even more beautiful than the photos and descriptions on the website. The views are spectacular, the property itself lovingly restored and the house delightful. The sculptures at various places on the grounds add a special aesthetic - they work so well with the surrounding natural beauty. The owner and managers were very accessible and helpful when needed.
The only mildly negative aspect was the recent landslide that took out a portion of the road to the property. The extra walk was only about 10 minutes and a car was made available if needed. And repair was in progress so presumably this won't be an issue in the future.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property friends.
Sitting on our deck over looking the blue Mediterranean, looking down at Camaorie in the Valley, drinking lemon water with lemon that we could have picked from the many lemon trees here(If we were allowed) I wonder how to give this miraculous place a review that my words could adequately express. Tuscany.....a place where I have wanted to go since....forever. Pictures, Movies are what was in my minds eye as to what this place would be like. Our La Foresteria home fill those dreams and so much more! How can I explain our quaint, old, tastefully decorated simple Tuscan home. With its wood burning fireplace (in which we used on those chilly spring nights) to our view from our third floor bedroom. We sat up there at night on our tiny chairs drinking our Chianti before bed looking and talking about our amazing vacation home. We were there in the spring, beautiful warm days and very cool evenings, even so our windows wide open, deep under our feather duvet...the unit has no heat...but there is no need. The Grounds are very well kept - the terratzza...out front where guests can go to visit if they so please. A little bar on the honor system - who sees that now-a-days. The swimming pool on the upper level was not open, but I imagine that it is a lovely spot in the warm summer months. The purple wisteria, Fiore's sculptures throughout......Olive trees, the before mentioned Lemon and orange trees, bushes of rosemary and sage! It is truly a magnificent spot!
The friendliness and helpfulness of Kate, Stephan and Dinah...beyond what is expected.
Our only concern was the steep walk up to the house (not their fault the road washed out in the winter), in fact the walk probably did me a lot of good! But if I wasn't walking.....I would be driving a very narrow ride up...umm the walk didn't seem so bad!
We visited, Florence, Pisa and Lucca while staying at Peralta, all close driving distance for day trips away. But the best days were the quiet, relaxing days at Peralta!
We enjoyed the Pizza Restaurant in Pieve, and used the grocery store there to stock our kitchen. We did take advantage of having our meals made for us one night,(delicious Italian sausage and Chicken) but then enjoyed cooking our meals on the barbeque the rest of the time, if we did not dine out when site seeing.
Overall, I cannot explain very well the place that is Peralta. A must to experience....Our Italian Home!
Thank you for this enthusiastic review. We so love to hear our guests praise Peralta! It is such a very special place and we are happy that you had such an enjoyable experience here. A presto e grazie
Peralta er en åsside i den nordlige delen av Toscana, i bakken av Alpi Apuane (nasjonalpark), 10 min fra markedsbyen Camaiore i dalen, som igjen er 10 min innlands fra kysten.
Det er et spennende område å utforske: du kan tilbringe dagen på fjellet eller gå til sjøen. Nærheten til Carrara-fjellene og bronsstøperiene i Pietrasanta har gjort området til et favorittsted for å leve og jobbe for skulptører og andre kunstnere.
Åsene og fjellene rundt oss er flotte for å gå og vandre om våren, tidlig sommer og høst. Botanikere er alltid begeistret av spekteret av ville blomster og pærer.
Turistattraksjoner: Den vakre, befestede byen Lucca ligger en 35 min kjøretur mot sør ..
A12 / A11 autoroute utgang tar 20 minutter, gjør dagsturer til Siena (2 timer), Carrara og dens marmor miner (45 min) veldig enkelt.
Det nærmeste er Viareggio, den mest populære Forte dei Marmi (35 min eller så). Cinque Terre er en time unna - man kan kjøre til La Spezia eller Porto Venere og besøke dem med båt - fergetjenesten er hyppig.
Shopping i området (Lucca / Firenze / Forte dei Marmi) er legendarisk! Skulptørens by Pietrasanta ligger kun 20 minutter unna.
Peralta er ideelt plassert for Puccini Festival (40 min unna). Open air opera Festival foregår på kanten av en innsjø i juli og august på Torre del Lago.
Vi har et fjell med informasjon og forslag til våre gjester, inkludert veibeskrivelser, når og hvor lokale markeder skjer, brocante markeder, "må besøke" steder og restauranter, vår favoritt fjellstasjon etc etc
Peralta føles fantastisk fjernt og tilbaketrukket, og likevel er det veldig lett tilgjengelig.
På dagtid er det alltid noen på stedet for å hjelpe med alle henvendelser om dagsturer, fergetider, råd om dette og det.
Flyplasser: Pisa 45 min, Firenze 1 h, Genova 1 h, 40 min - Bologna 2 h, Milano 3 1/2 h.
