Peralta is a small hamlet situated in the hills overlooking the Camaiore Valley in Tuscany.  Camaiore, in the Lucca Province, is known for its landcapes and medieval villages. Enjoy the view of the valley, the sunset and meet other guests on Peralta’s large terrace.  

Cooking Class

A well-known local chef will offer a class in Tuscan cuisine with a hands-on lesson for those interested.


The retreat will provide a licensed massage therapist on site for those wishing to book a session.


Take a dip or just relax by Peralta’s outdoor pool.  The pool is treated with salt, so no chemicals are used.


Peralta provides maps for a number of stunning hikes originating from the hamlet.  


The retreat will organize group trips to Pietrasanta and Lucca, as well as a group hike to dinner in local family-run restaurant.   Peralta can assist those who may wish to tour the area on their own with recommendations, directions, and arranging for transportation.
