We had a very lovely vacation to Italy and Fattoria di Statiano.
It was a very lovely place, which lived up to our expectations.
There were good places to relax and get the country feeling. But at the same time was there exiting cities not far from the place. Especially the city Volterra was close.
The apartments were clean and fine. However, some knives and cutting boards were missing. There were only dinner knives and one very small cutting board. Sometimes it was a challenge to cook dinner, but it went fine. And I am cure that if we had said anything to the owners, they would have lent us something.
The pool was fine and clean in a very beautiful garden. Our children (13 years old) thought it was fun to swim there.
It was mostly the wife we talk to, and she was very friendly and wanted to help us. She was helping us to ideas of places we could see in the local area.
On your website (Local Living), you write about cooking classes, but we did not see anything in our time down there. We did not experience anything in terms of the cooking class and the owner did not say anything to us about it. But she did mention that we could by dinner 3 times a week, which she would made for us. We bought dinner from her one evening and it was cosy and delicious! And the same of their wine! You could buy 2 bottles of the wine they are making, and it taste delicious. But if you go to see a wine production and live in a vineyard this is not the place to go.
But I would recommend the place and we would visit the place again – if it is was for the many other placed in Italy we want to explore. Morten, 2018.
