It's been a wonderful time in Peralta. Everyone was really nice and helpful. This house is such a gem and most of the time we sat on the terrace or stayed at the pool, overlooking the breathtaking view of the valley.
We're confident that we will come back in the future.
Thank you so much . Hope to see you back soon.
Very inspiring and relaxing place to stay
We stayed in Peralta with 7 persons for one week and we loved this special place. The house, the nice pool, the great views and the lovely people contributed very much to the wonderful week that we had. Kate and Chris were very polity and we really appreciated their help and hospitality during our stay. We loved the pool and the nice views from our terrace. Besides we had a very interesting introduction about the story of Peralta and Fiore de Henriquez' sculptures that are still in Peralta. We loved it very much. We really hope to visit Peralta in the near future again and we can recommend other people to visit this nice place!
Relaxingly away from it all yet near everything!
A relaxed, inspiring atmosphere with a stunning view where you can either keep to yourself or be amongst the fabulous Tuscan world while feeling like you are in Italy proper, not just a tourist.
The relaxed but highly organised and knowledgable Kate was available for anything we needed. Our villa, Casa Luigi, had plenty of space, was perfectly clean and had just the right amount of mod cons to be rustic but practical.
The teenagers loved the wifi terraces and swimming pool and the sense of satisfaction at completing the beautiful walk up or down to the car, restaurants etc.
The beautiful quality and impressive quantity of Fiore de Henrique's works scattered around enhanced the inspiring atmosphere which considering the view was a surprisingly pleasant added joy.
The nearest restaurants were equally relaxed and provided delicious local food; our favourite was C'era Una Volta from which they willingly provided us lifts back up to Peralta.
Visits to Pisa, Florence, Lucca and the beach at Viareggio were not only highly recommended but also easily manageable.
Teenagers and adults got so much from this change from our everyday lives.
We hope to be back with the rest of our brood soon!
Enjoyed every minute of our holiday here. The house had everything we needed for a family of 5 - including essential wifi down the hill for our 3 teens! The hilltop pool was a real bonus - felt like swimming on top of the world every evening, with the sun going down, turning the sea and sky golden.
Kate and Lee were so friendly and helpful when needed for any questions or practical help but also melted into the background and worked away behind the scenes the rest of the time.
Peralta is such a fabulous, peaceful hideaway and yet close enough to explore towns and cities - Lucca is a real gem, then of course Pisa and Florence are fabulous too. The lake in the national park is well worth the trip too, especially the boardwalk trail from Massaciuccoli, where we were delighted with 3 new bird species!
Eating out was a great experience too, from the corner pizzeria down the hill, to the many and varied options in the cities. Don't forget to try out the amazing ice-cream shops too!
The corner shop down the hill stocks all essentials including fresh bread in the mornings and is worth the visit just for the parmesan grating machine and the lovely shopkeeper of endless patience and smiles who clearly appreciates the extra business, even is she has to mime for it!
The walk from the car park to the house was an enjoyable addition to our daily routine and on the last day our early start was made all the more pleasant with the addition of a few shooting stars!
We hope we will be back!

Peralta is a place you'll find it very difficult not to fall in love with - not least the house 'Casa Luigi' we rented and shared with our friends this time. 4 adults, 4 children, plenty of space and a wonderful terrace overlooking the hills and valleys of Tuscany.
There's a vibe to Peralta that we haven't found anywhere else. Maybe it's Kate and Dinah and their numerous friends who run the place, maybe it's the art of Flores de Hernandez that meets your eye no matter where you go - or maybe it's the good old concept of trust and headspace. (just leave a note if you borrow a bottle of wine from the bar at the main terrace in this little village)... Ah, the peace and quietness of this place, the fresh air of the mountains, the breathtaking views..I can us all returning year after year, This really is a place like nowhere else.
Thank you very much. It was so nice to see you back. See you next year .

Peralta has everything that one would expect of a vacation in Tuscany and more. The views of the rolling hills and the misty ocean make you feel as if you have stepped into a painting. The accommodations are charming and the staff is very hospitable. In my opinion, the statues by Fiore de Henriquez, which are dotted throughout the property, make this location unique and unforgettable. One great advantage of the hillside location is that it is a few degrees cooler than the lowland which is wonderful at the end of a hot day sightseeing. Peralta is a magical and peaceful vacation destination.
