I have visited Cascina Papaveri several times. The vista's are fabulous, the cooking & wine divine. The pilates equipment is state of the art and the teaching is amazing. My only challenge is choosing how to spend my free time; the pool, sauna, steam bath, biking, hiking or reading a great book on the terrace? I can't wait to go... More

From the breathtaking view to the wonderful food and wine, relaxing atmosphere and excellent Pilates and cooking courses, I can't wait to go back! My friends are all justifiably jealous!

This is my 2nd trip to this amazing place. I just wanted to be sure I wasn't delusional :-) Turns out, I wasn't. A review can't describe the experience here. Pilates, food, cooking, wine, Italy, great hosts. It is an immersion into everything or nothing of all that you could need or want for the complete balance of tourism and... More

The Cascina Papaveri sits high above vineyards that stretch as far as the eye can see; this is serious wine growing country and the view is virtually 360 degrees around. John and Robyn Sims, the owners, have done a meticulous renovation of an old large farm building, as well as adding a pool and lavishly equipped Pilates training area. Our... More

Our friend is a Pilates instructor, so off we went for a week of twice daily Pilates and italian cooking lessons. The rooms are modern and John, the owner, has taken great care that the farmhouse is 'green'. We started each day with Pilates, had a breakfast of yogurt and fruit and headed down to the village for cappuccino. Each... More

The Poppy Farmhouse is a dream! I own an Italian Specialty Food Store and after I heard about this estate from one of our clients who is a pilates instructor we set out to bring a group there as soon as possible. Everything is well thought out and put together... the facilities, food, wine & extra activities are amazing! John... More

The Cascina Papaveri was a perfect place to see the Piedmont Valley of Italy while having super owners who opened their farmhouse and vineyard to the guests treating them as their own family. The cooking was superb the whole time of the stay. The chef provided tips on how to make each meal and explained the techniqes of his success.... More

This is an amazing spot, in a wonderful house. The rooms were very private, clean and comfortable with amazing views. The cooking classes were excellent and very hands on - the chef was fabulous and was very fun to work with. The Pilates experience was great, and the studio/pool is beautiful. The hosts were very helpful. It was a great... More

The hosts at Cascina Papaveri have managed to achieve the fine balance between giving their guests the welcome and warmth one expects in a private home without encroaching on guests' privacy or freedom to do as one pleases. The house is beautifully designed and decorated with an eye for detail and all rooms have well thought out facilities - though... More
