Cascina Papaveri is family owned and run holiday resort, organic Vineyard, and Agritourismo that offers unique Holiday programs focused on Pilates and Cooking in rural Piedmonte, Northern Italy.
We have been open since 2006 serving the international Pilates community, novices to experienced cooking enthusiasts, and people just after a wonderful holiday. We hope we have opened up a delicious and less visited part of Italy.
Pilates is an exercise method aimed at people of all ages and ability.
The Pilates Method can help you to become flexible, increase mobility, tones the body and helps you unwind.
Our studio Pilates is equipped with the latest ‘Balanced Body’ Pilates equipment. The studio features both mat and equipment areas including Cadillacs, Reformers, Chairs and is the only fully equipped vacation studio in the world.
Under the guidance of highly experienced local chef Gino Minacapilli or Pietro Baldi, there are five, three hour Culinary Experiences sessions per week. You will be encouraged to be as hands on as possible depending on the actual dish being prepared.
Why have we called these sessions ‘Culinary Experiences’? Because italian chef’s are insistent that the act of ‘cooking’ is only one of a number of steps in the selection, preparation, cooking and of course the eating of food.
