The two apartments are located in Casa Pipistrelli, one of the houses that forms the peaceful hillside hamlet of Peralta which is situated on a south facing hillside above the valley of Camaiore.
Casa Pipistrelli is a three storey house, built on terraced land. This means that the apartments have their own entrances and do not overlook each other. Each apartments has only one bedroom but it is possible to take a separate bedroom with bathroom in the same house, thus offering accommodation for 4 people in either apartment. The two bedrooms take up the second floor of the house. Both additional bedrooms have their own entrances.
The GARDEN APARTMENT takes up the ground floor of Casa Pipistrelli and, as its name suggests, is surrounded by garden: at the back is a paved patio and in the front a shady, grass garden, particularly appreciated on a hot summer day. Both the patio and the front garden have a table so you can choose where to eat! There is a barbecue and garden lounger chairs. The living room opens both back and front onto the garden and has a fireplace for cosy winter evenings. The double bedroom opens onto the front garden and is cool on hot nights. Well equipped kitchen and a bathroom with shower complete the apartment.
The TERRACE APARTMENT takes up the third (top floor) of Casa Pipistrelli. Its entrance is from a path the back of the house. The views over the valley are panoramic and the large terrace is accessed from the back of the apartment. The terrace also has lovely views and is very private. Olive trees provide shade but the terrace is large and so there is also a place to find full sun if you prefer. Sun beds, a dining table and lots of peace and quiet to be found here. Double bedroom; bathroom with shower; dressing area; large living room with kitchenette at one end.
Both apartments have central heating and are very comfortable in winter. Long lets in the winter are possible at very reasonable rates.
There is a shared swimming pool on one of the upper terraces, a tranquil spot with a panoramic view towards the sea.
PERALTA, with medieval origins, was restored over a period of thirty years with love and imagination by international sculptor Fiore de Henriquez. She created a place that is quite unique. Its commanding position gives Peralta stunning panoramic views over the valley to the sea beyond. Terraces of olive groves, orange and lemon trees, bougainvillea, jasmine covering the stone walls makes the hamlet seem like paradise. Fiore’s sculpture and the manner in which she designed and restored Peralta, give the place its very special character and atmosphere. Perfect base for a holiday, far from busy crowds and yet with easy access to all main Tuscany attractions. The town of Camaiore is a ten minute car drive away. It is lovely to return to the peace of Peralta after a busy day.
Peralta has various self catering accommodation located in different houses, lots of shady olive terrace with the large terrace in front of Peralta being a lovely place to sit with a glass of wine, enjoy the sunsets and meet other guests.
ART AT PERALTA: As well as for guests who simply wish to relax and enjoy their surroundings and the pool, Peralta also offers an ideal, inspiring setting for creative people: painting, sculpting, writing. Writers can settle in and write in peace. Lovely walking country with marked trails through the olive groves and hills dense with chestnut trees and known for their wild flowers in spring and autumn. Walks range from 50 minutes to a delightful restaurant in an adjoining village, to three hours up to the peak of the Mount Prana above Peralta.
