Relaxation for the family in the wine estate, strategic position, all the comforts

It is very rare nowadays to spend, as in the Pakravan Papi Estate, a holiday in absolute peace within a property now known for the production of fine wines and in a unique naturalistic context, with an exceptional view on the coast, which offers complete serenity for the whole family, without giving up any kind of comfort.

The apartments of our structure are obtained in two houses dating back to the year 1740, first to be built at the behest of the Grand Duke on the heights of the Val di Cecina.

The residence is located on the top of a hill 7 km from the sea, with exceptional views of 20 km of coastline and an unspoiled landscape of Mediterranean vegetation, olive groves and vineyards, located on the edge of a state reserve.

The beaches of Cecina mare, Vada and Castiglioncello are easily reachable in about 10-15 minutes.

The international airport of Pisa is 40 minutes away.

The "Cecina Nord" entrance of the A12 motorway can be reached in 10 minutes.

Attention: the last 3 km of road are on dirt road, passable by almost all types of vehicles but not recommended for cars with very low set up.

Our property is born as a winery, now known on the national and international scene, with wines that boast many awards.

We wanted to make the company sustainable energy. The electricity is produced by a wind generator of 25 Kw that, thanks to good wind site, provides electricity required.

The winter heating and hot water are provided by a boiler that, in addition to the solar panels, using, as a fuel, the pruning of the screws (about 90. 000 plants).

The two houses have been restored respecting the original grand-ducal architecture and consist of 5 apartments of 55 sqm finely furnished, recovered with a conservative restoration, with a double bedroom and single bed in addition, sofa bed in the living room for a total of 4 beds, bathroom with shower, large living kitchen, air conditioning, wi-fi.

Two more apartments with mezzanine and single bed in the double bedroom, a double sofa bed in the living room, can accommodate up to 4 people.

Freely available to guests, a swimming pool with panoramic sea views, outdoor relaxation area, tennis, cycling, playground, barbecue area.

Nearby, selected traditional restaurants and centers of sporting and bathing activities.

Opportunity to participate for free in the visit of our wine cellar followed by wine tasting organized once a week.

                                                                  Martha R.

                                                                  When we drove up to the hill the first time to the property, we were amazed and suprised by the beautiful villa and the magnificent view. The appartement is perfect: spacious, clean, new, well equiped kitchen, very good beds, luxurues bathrooms and again, amazing views tot the see and the hills from all windows. It's very quiet and a little bit ''faraway", but we loved it and by car you can reach the highway and beach in 15 minutes.

                                                                  The swimming pool we will miss the most - again perfect, spacious, clean, beautifully situated on the nice venue. The owners are friendly, helpful and proud of the place they created theirselves (which we can totally imagine).

                                                                  It's the place that you'll never want to leave

                                                                  Stephen J.

                                                                  I can guarantee that this place will not disappoint. It is everything the owners said it would be and more. Everything from the hospitality of the family that owns it to facilities available for you to use are top notch. Centrally located to plenty of places to visit and things to see. Great restaurants nearby or very nice kitchen with everything you can think of if you choose to stay in. Admittedly our plans changed the minute we arrived, the serenity of Pakraven-Papi drew us in and we decided to enjoy a little more time on the grounds instead of fighting crowds and searching for parking in some of the larger/popular Italian cities. Be sure and plan to stay here awhile. Next time I book it, it will be a day of sightseeing followed by a day of rest on the grounds. Cannot say enough great things about this place, hands down the best place we rented on my families European vacation! A huge thank you to Chiara, Animeh and their wonderful family and staff.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Chiara sends her warm regards and so do I,

                                                                  Ann Marie K.Chicago, IL

                                                                  The apartment was spacious, immaculate, well-equipped, and in a quiet hilltop location. They have thought of everything, and in a very tasteful manner. The rooms were stylish and the beds were very comfortable. It was a treat to find breakfast fixings in the fridge; the kitchen was modern and appliances easy to use -- it even had a dishwasher. Laundry facilities were a few steps away, along with outdoor grills. We were not able to enjoy the pool or tennis court but they were pristine. Plenty of terraces to just sit and enjoy the surroundings, and it was lovely to walk around the property. Access to expressways and main roads is nearby. Our view included the Mediterranean Sea as well as vineyards, olive tree groves, and breathtaking sunsets! The owner Amineh is a gracious and thoughtful hostess, multilingual and gave us a tour of the winery; staff member Giacomo was attentive and extremely helpful, always available if needed and providing suggestions for shopping, restaurants and sightseeing. The estate wines are exceptional! A very good value. We enjoyed a luxurious and wonderful stay!

Traumhafte, ruhige Lage mit wunderbarem Blick über Meer & Hinterland. Das Appartment ist sehr gut ausgestattet, die Anlage traumhaft - einschließlich Tennisplatz und Barbecue Platz. Die Gastgeber sind sehr freundlich und umsichtig. Der Weg zur Tenuta ist ein nicht befestigter Schotterweg aber für die Lage lohnt sich der Weg! Wir werden sicherlich sehr gerne wieder kommen!

                                                                  Wunderschöne Tage bei Tenuta Pakravan Papi

                                                                  Josef S.

                                                                  Wir haben eben einen wunderschönen Urlaub verbracht:

                                                                  + traumhafte Lage auf einem Hügel (ca. 200m Seehöhe) mit Panoramablick auf Küste, Meer und vorgelagerte Inseln (Capraia, Elba, bei guter Sicht sogar Korsika)

                                                                  + schöne, gepflegte, gut ausgestattete Anlage mit Riesen-Pool

                                                                  + sehr nette und gastfreundliche Eigentümerin, gleiches gilt für das Personal

                                                                  + Willkommenspaket für das 1. Frühstück im Kühlschrank, je 1 Flasche Rot- bzw. Weißwein vom Gut

                                                                  + Führung im Weinkeller und Weinverkostung der am Gut hergestellten Weiß- und Rotweine

                                                                  + am Abend bzw. in der Nacht selbst im Juli angenehme Temperatur 20-25 Grad, sodaß wir die Klimaanlage kaum eingeschalten haben

                                                                  Einzige erwähnenswerte Nachteile waren die Sand-/Schotterstraße zum Gut und die instabile WLAN-Verbindung - das konnte unseren ausgezeichneten Gesamteindruck aber keinesfalls trüben.

                                                                  Simply the best!

                                                                  Ilona M.München

                                                                  One of the most beautiful views in whole tuscany! We loved the stunning pool and enjoyed the tennis court. The apartement was perfectly clean and in a standard we have never seen in italy before. Our landlords couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. They looked after us like we were friends. A perfect spot for a vacation! Thank you very much! We are planing to come again.

                                                                  Owner's Response:
