Perinaldo has a post office with a cash point; pharmacy; mini-market; bakery and a choice of bars and restaurants.
Local culinary specialities include 'carciofi' (artichokes); olive oil (made from Taggiasca olives); dishes made with cinghiale (wild boar); Rossese wine.
It is a relatively quiet village but hosts a number of festivals throughout the year and many in the summer and August in particular.
For all star gazers, Perinaldo has it's own observatory. The villa is equipped with it's own astronomical telescope and guide book on gazing at the stars.
