Casa Giovanni is part of the medieval hillside hamlet of Peralta in Tuscany which was restored by the well known sculptor Fiore de Henriquez. This is a house on two floors, sleeping four people, which we have recently renovated.It is spacious and extremely comfortable.
You can enter Casa Giovanni on either floor. The top floor has 2 bedrooms: one large double with ensuite bathroom (bed 1,80m), one twin or double (1.60m) which has its own washroom, and then its bathroom on lower floor. The large living room has floor to ceiling glass doors down one side of the room leading to a covered balcony from which you have a fabulous, panoramic view over the valley. Facing south, this balcony is a delight in the cooler months.The lower floor has a spacious dining room leading to a large terrace with a superb view; the kitchen has a shaded terrace – the ‘summer dining room’ – surrounded by olive trees and looking towards the sea. Both these terraces face south and are totally private. There is a second bathroom on the lower floor.
Sunsets seen from the house are stunning. The house is situated in front of and below the hamlet of Peralta and is therefore very private – you can forget there is anyone else around and be in your own world, or mingle with other guests of Peralta – the choice is your’s.We can recommend Casa Giovanni for the winter months as it has excellent central heating (air conditioning in summer!). It is ideal for the Christmas and New Year break, and its spectacular view of the valley is perfect for viewing the fireworks that burst up at midnight all over the hills and valley. Quite an extraordinary sight!The guests of Casa Giovanni share Peralta’s pool, set on a terrace above the hamlet with a bird’s eye view of the valley, the hills and the sea.
