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.

Beautiful, comfortable stay in perfect location
We loved our farmstay at the Tenuto Pakravan-Papi vineyard. The location is well situated, about 45 minutes from Pisa (north), Volterra (west) and the coastal road/towns (east). (There are some beautiful drives and interesting destinations nearby to the south, too, though we didn't have a chance to get down that way.)
The farmstay is located at the top of a hill in a national park, at the end of a winding dirt road, so it takes about fifteen minutes to get there from the main road turnoff--this means there is zero traffic noise or congestion, and the peace and quiet is wonderful! It also means it is a perfect place to watch the sunset, or sunrise, or both, as you have an unobstructed and gorgeous vista view in pretty much all directions.
The attic apartment is in a beautifully restored old house and they make excellent use of the space in the apartment; everything feels airy but comfortable, with clean but warm design.
There is a good restaurant nearby; we split our mealtimes between the restaurant, our daytrip destinations, and our own little kitchen, which was stocked with appliances and dishes. Amineh provided plenty of breakfast items for the length of our stay.
Amineh and Enzo were welcoming and made sure we had anything we needed. They are both very interesting people, with a lot of knowledge about a variety of subjects. Amineh speaks Italian, French, English, Spanish, and Farci fluently.
The tour of the wine-making facilities was interesting. It's clear Amineh and Enzo care deeply about the wine-making process--and, of course, the quality of the resulting excellent wines.
We did not have a chance to try out the pool, but its location is great--right at the edge of the high hill, overlooking a farmed and forested valley. They are planning to add a tennis court and breakfast pavilion in the next month or two.
Wonderful! I wish I were still there! Highly recommended.
Sehr zu empfehlen, Wunderschönes Anwesen. Sehr guter Wein. Der Ausblick ist unglaublich und eine unglaubliche ruhe. Die Besitzer und Mitarbeiter sind sehr freundlich und zuvor kommend. Die Wohnungen sind sehr gut ausgestattet, unsere Wohnung war mit einer Klimaanlage ausgestattet. W-LAN hat man auch auf dem kompletten Anwesen. Wer Ruhe und Entspannung sucht ist hier komplett richtig.
The farm of the Pakravan Papi Estate is located in a haven of peace on the edge of a state nature reserve. 3 km of dirt road through the woods make up the last stretch of the path to reach the property.
The enchanting ancient villages of the surrounding hills are just a few kilometers away, as well as the sea and the small towns of Cecina, Rosignano and Castiglioncello, pleasant seaside resorts where you can find any kind of service and sporting and recreational activities, both day and night, enjoy the rich Tuscan food and wine tradition in the restaurants of the area, and then find, returning to the Estate, all the tranquility and freedom of a holiday in contact with nature and tradition.
At 20 minutes from the Etruscan ruins of Populonia, 40 minutes 'drive from Pisa and Volterra, 1 hour 30 from Florence and Siena: the strategic geographical position of the Estate Pakravan Papi offers the opportunity to visit in a day the major cities' art in Tuscany, destination of world tourism.
