Stunning, unusual house in sculptor's hillside medieval hamlet.

Located in: Camaiore
This Tuscan stone house was originally the private guest house of Fiore, the sculptor who restored the medieval hamlet of Peralta. On two floors, with a large, private terrace. She restored and furnished it with imagination, using the original terracotta roof tiles for the floor of the main room which has a sunken fireplace and large windows from which to enjoy the panoramic view. Also on the ground floor is a large kitchen, WC. Upstairs is the charming bedroom furnished with antiques - French windows give the same stunning view as the lower floor. Bathroom & dressing room are ensuite. Fiore's sculpture is all over the house and terrace giving tremendous character and atmosphere. Ideal location for a romantic holiday for two, but equally suitable for a group of friends with the possibility of taking additional bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms & their own entrances elsewhere in Peralta. This romantic and unusual self catering house is let by the night. The pool is shared.

The hamlet of Peralta: The beautiful peaceful hamlet of Peralta has a spectacular setting in the Tuscan hills that rise high above the valley of Camaiore. It was restored with great love and imagination by international sculptor Fiore de Henriquez. She created a place that is quite unique. Peralta was her home up to her death in June 2004, and one can see her work all through the hamlet. Her sculpture everywhere, and the manner in which she restored and designed the hamlet give it very special atmosphere and character. With stunning, panoramic views over the valley to the hills and sea beyond and surrounded by terraces of olive groves, its stone walls covered with purple bougainvilleas, lemon trees, jasmine, Peralta seems like paradise., a place for people seeking tranquility and beauty. There is a swimming pool on an upper terrace with a panoramic view towards the sea. The large terrace in front of Peralta is a lovely place to sit with a glass of wine, enjoy the sunsets and meet other guests.

Surrounding area: 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. Although secluded, the motorway is only 20 mins away so sightseeing is easy. Shopping in Florence/Lucca/Forte dei Marmi is legendary! Porto Venere & the Cinque Terre are 1 hour away. The sculptor's town of Pietrasanta takes 20 minutes and has many cafes and restaurants. Beaches are 30 mins away. The closest shops (grocer and greengrocer) are just minutes down the hill where there is also a bar/pizza restaurant. The market town of Camaiore takes 10 minutes by car. Peralta offers self catering accommodation sleeping from 2 to 8 and 4 additional bedrooms with bathrooms. The whole hamlet can be let out for parties, sleeping a total of 32 people. Please ask us for our website address

ACCESS: Airports: Pisa 45 mins - Florence 1 hr. Genoa 1 hr.40mins - Bologna 2hrs. The exit from A11 and A12 motorway (Florence/Livorno/Genoa) is Viareggio/Camaiore. This is approx. 25 minutes from Peralta. Details given on our website.
Note: The last 200 or so yards of our road are very steep and narrow with 2 hairpin bends. A smallish car is recommended, although an Espace & other large cars can make it!! This last bit of road is unsuitable for nervous drivers. The road comes to an end in our carpark. From there you walk to Peralta itself (about 200 yards/meters) and we can help with luggage (9am to 6pm). . Don't be put off by the last piece of road - Peralta more than merits the effort! And if you are in a very large car, you can always park it below the hairpin bends. Only a short walk up to the carpark.
