About the property

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.

Relaxing holiday in a stunning location with wonderful hosts - and the wine was pretty good too!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the first week in August in the Gabbriccio apartment and what a relaxing week we had. The apartment is one of four in the building and sits alonside the owners accommodation building on a working vineyard with stunning views of the Tuscan coastline to Cecina to the front and the rolling hills of Tuscany to the rear.

We made great use of the swimming pool and also had use of the tennis courts, bikes and chidrens play area if required. There is also a well equipped utility area with washing machine and tumble dryer if required.

The apartment was very clean and fresh with all the facilities you need for a great self-catering holiday including a well equipped kitchen. The beds were very comfortable and towels and swimming towels provided. The air conditioning was essential and very effective. The welcome pack was probably the best we have ever had in a rental property.

The owners were delightfully welcoming and hosted the free wine tasting and tour of the vineyard which was both educational and tasty. Their care and attention for the properties and their guests is obvious from the moment you arrive.

The property sits a along a hilltop spur and access is via an unmade road/track up through the forest which is quite an experience (SUV's and 4x4's are probably better than a standard saloon type of car). When you reach the top of the unmade road the vineyard and the property suddenly pops into view in its great location.

It is a great base from which to explore Pisa, Florence, Sienna, Volterra and the numerous local hill towns.

We have hired properties in the UK, France, Denmark and now Italy and we all agreed that this was the best. We are now planning when we might be able to return.

Perfekte Erholung in traumhafter Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Hier ist die Wirklichkeit noch viel schöner, als es Bilder jemals darstellen können!

Wir, eine Familie mit vier Kindern, haben hier zwei Wochen einen traumhaften und unvergesslichen Urlaub verbracht.

Schon das Organisatorische vor der Anreise verlief unkompliziert. Auch unsere sehr späte Anreise in der Nacht stellte kein Problem dar und wir wurden aufs herzlichste empfangen. Die Apartments sind sehr sauber und geschmackvoll, ganz individuell und mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet. In der Küche fehlt es wirklich an nichts – sie ist so gut ausgestattet, wie wir es noch nie in einer Ferienwohnung erlebt haben. Und im Kühlschrank überraschte uns alles, was man sich für ein ausgiebiges Frühstück nur wünschen kann.

Die gesamte Anlage ist sehr gepflegt und eine gelungene Kombination aus Tradition und Moderne. Es gibt viele lauschige Plätzchen, an denen man sich ungestört niederlassen kann. Dabei hat man überall einen überwältigenden Rundumblick über das Meer und die Berge.

Für unsere Kinder war neben Spielplatz und Tennisplatz natürlich das Schwimmbad der tollste Ort, an dem sie am liebsten die kompletten Ferien verbracht hätten. Während sie darin tauchten und schwammen, duften wir Eltern auf bequemen Liegen endlich mal wieder ein Buch lesen oder einfach den Ausblick genießen.

Am Abend konnten wir beim Grillen Sternschnuppen zählen oder bei einem Glas Wein den Zikaden lauschen.

Die Eigentümerfamilie und auch die Angestellten waren jederzeit hilfsbereit und herzlich - wir haben uns wirklich sehr willkommen gefühlt. Ganz herzlichen Dank dafür!!!

Ein Höhepunkt war sicher die Weinprobe, bei der wir auch erfuhren, wie aus einer Ruine in verwilderter Landschaft in noch nicht einmal 20 Jahren wieder ein blühendes Weingut mit exzellenten Weinen wurde.

Obwohl die Tenuta in den Bergen liegt, ist der Weg zu einem gut ausgestatteten Supermarkt mit dem Auto nicht weit. In der Umgebung gibt es nette Restaurants und Pizzerien.

Ein besonderer Tipp ist auch der Kletterpark, an dem man auf dem Weg zum Anwesen vorbei kommt – von Kleinkind bis klettererfahren findet hier jeder die passende Herausforderung.

Wir kommen ganz bestimmt wieder!!!

Inoubliable !

  • 5 of 5

Je ne trouve que des superlatifs pour décrire ce lieu...

La situation tout d'abord, le domaine se situe en haut d'une colline avec vue sur la méditerranée, bercée par une brise marine. La vue est à couper le souffle !

La location et les aménagements sont tout simplement magnifiques, tout est fait avec goût et soin et d'une grande finesse. Tout est pensé pour le confort et le repos des vacanciers (piscine impeccable, terrain de tennis, jeux pour enfants, VTT, aires de repas). Sans oublier le vin, en effet le domaine vit au rythme de la vigne, les vendanges étaient d'ailleurs en cours lors de notre séjour. Et le vin est très très bon...

Sachez que ce petit paradis se mérite : l'accès, qui se fait par un chemin un peu chaotique de 3 km environ à travers la forêt, demande un peu de patience (10-15 minutes en voiture).

Je ne peux que recommander cette location à toutes les familles qui recherchent le calme et le repos dans un cadre magique, près des accès routiers pour découvrir les richesses toscanes : Pise, Sienne, Florence, San Giminiano (mon coup de cœur), mais aussi l'île d'Elbe. Sachez également qu'il y a un restaurant à 10 mn à pieds du domaine, qui fait d'excellentes pizzas à déguster en pleine nature au milieu des italiens du coin...

Amineh, la propriétaire du domaine, est une hôtesse à l'image du domaine, discrète, efficace et accueillante, tout comme Chiara, sa fille.

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

This place is heaven on earth! We absolutely fell in love with the whole place. The apartment was new, stylish, comfortable, well kept, air conditioned and had everything we needed and more. Extra plus for lovely and soft beds. The house is situated on the top of a hill and the view was just breathtaking. The swimmingpool was modern, clean and a view in it self. Chiara and her mother Amineh was the perfect hosts, and even if they just had started to rent out apartments, they had thought of everything. We would love to come back, and have recommended the place for all of our friends in Norway!
