Your hosts

Tina and Paolo are expecting you! Fattoria di Statiano is a small family-run business. In the 1950s, Ettore Castaldi bought the Statiano farm with its 70 hectares of fields, woods and its ancient house dating from 1750.

In 2001, Tina and Paolo restored the old house creating a farmhouse agritourism: Fattoria di Statiano. They were fulfilling their dream of living in the heart of the Tuscan countryside where Tina always had her roots and Paolo too for thirty years.

Tina underwent a great change in her life moving from a city on the coast to the middle of the countryside. She loves preparing breakfasts, growing herbs and roses and tending the garden. She enjoys telling you all the things there are to do around the area and generally spending time with her guests which she finds very interesting.

Paolo has been working in biological agriculture for 30 years and is part of “Biomaremma”. For him, biological farming is a challenge when you apply it so meticulously but it’s a part of his search for harmony. At Statiano you can also meet Davide (Paolo’s son) and Matilde and Leonardo ( Tina’s niece and nephew) who come to lend a hand with the seasonal work of the farm. Their involvement ensures that there will always be a future for Statiano and its dream.
