About the property and the region.
Cascina Papaveri features a completely restored early 19th century farmhouse located high in the Monferrato hills. The farmhouse presides over a 600 square metre south facing courtyard with stunning views of vineyard clad hills, hilltop villages and the Italian Alps bordering France and Switzerland. The two year restoration project was completed in May 2006 when Cascina Papaveri opened as an activity centre / retreat and spa. The farmhouse and its extensive facilitates include a 12 metre indoor heated swimming pool, sauna and steam pool. Great care was taken to blend the traditional Piemontese farmhouse ambience with the latest and highest quality materials, fittings and technology.

Cascina Papaveri is located in the part of Piemonte which is famous for its classic cuisine, wines including Barolo, Barberesco, Barbera, Gavi, Moscato and rare and expensive white truffles. This combination of factors makes this small area around Asti and Alba the gourmet capital of Italy, if not Europe.

Cascina Papaveri offers potential purchasers a wealth of opportunities. It can serve as an idyllic country retreat or full time family home. Remain as a highly successful fully inclusive retreat with featuring Pilates and Italian cooking classes. Run as a B & B type property. The exclusive vineyard's organic production can be expanded to become a viable business unit.

The studio alongside the swimming pool is considered as the best vacation dedicated Pilates studio in the world. Such is Cascina Papaveri's reputation amongst Pilates professionals, an invitation to instruct guests at Cascina Papaveri is an accolade on Pilates' instructors resumes. In addition, US Pilates instructors routinely bring studio groups for a week's stay at a time.

Cascina Papaveri's international reputation means that over 80% of guests are from North America, the balance being from around the world.

The farmhouse complex has a building area of just over 1,000 sq. metres (10,900 sq. feet) excluding main courtyard and roof terrace.

Organically certified vineyard and wine making cantina.
Cascina Papaveri has always been a vineyard. New vineyard plantings to supplement the existing vines and organic soil enrichment has taken over 10 years to achieve what is possibly the most beautiful vineyard setting in the region. Repeated thinning and grape quality control during grape maturing on the vine reduces vintages to 30% to 50% of that allowable under DOCG regulations. Thus at the time of harvest only the highest quality grapes are left. As a result no added yeasts are required during the fermentation phase. 60% of the 2011 vintage has no added sulphites creating a perfectly natural wine. Depending upon the vintage, currently production is approximately 2,000 signed and numbered bottles of Barbera DOCG per vintage. The success of the vineyard and wines is the result of an ongoing collaboration with a consultant grape and wine oenologist. The day to day care of the vineyards and cantina is under the control of a capable staff member who liaises constantly with the enologists. The current area under vine is 2 acres; this can be expanded with the purchase of adjacent land vineyards.
