“Amazing place to Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2009

We stayed he back in September last year, was amazing. Terry and Marcello, were so helpful and friendly. The apartment we stayed in was clean, quite and more like a five start hotel.
The local food and wine they serve is of an excellent standard, just wised we could have stayed longer….

It is perfectly situated for trips to Florence and Assisi, and many other wonderful places to visit. This is a real slice of Italy. We will be back next.

My wife and I spent two weeks exploring Rome, Venice and Tuscany. Our 5-day stay at Casa Portagioia exceeded all expectations. The lodging is immaculate. The grounds absolutely beautiful. Terry and Marcello were the perfect hosts assisting in dinner reservations, guidance to local attractions and advice that made our daily excursions an exciting experience. Breakfast was far beyond what one would expect. They also offer a full course Italian meal prepared by Marcello and Terry and served in a romantic setting. We highly recommend this mouth watering culinary experience. This facility has been updated to accommodate your every need, but contains a history dating back hundreds of years. To date, Casa Portagioia is the finest B&B we have ever experienced.

We were gifted with a week's stay at this beautiful villa and we found it even lovelier than shown on the promotional or from our friend's recommendation. The accomodations---room, delicious breakfast in an outdoor area, flowers everywhere, great dinners twice a week, lovely location for exploring historic sites--enhanced by two great hosts, Terry and Marcello. They showed wit, humour, intelligence and willingness to go that extra mile to accomodate us and our plans. We have come to think of them as unforgettable friends we made during an unforgettable stay. Thank you, Terry and Marcello, for all you did for us.

(5/14/09 to 5/1609) I just stayed with my partner at Casa Portagioia... what a place! The property, nestled in a Tuscan valley, is absolutely stunning. The red poppy fields along the way brought my partner very fond memories of his childhood in Europe. The striking pine-lined road to the house complex is pleasing to the eye. Terry & Marcello welcomed us like family. We stayed at the Nocci room with views to the gardens, hills, and olive groves. This room, definitively, is a room with a view from every angle, even from the clean and spacious bathroom. The bed is very comfortable and welcoming after a long day of sightseeing. The grounds, with its gorgeous gardens, are very well maintained.
If you want to experience Tuscany in a "home away from home" experience, this is the place to go. Kudos to the owners for maintaining such a fabulous place.

My husband and I loved our 2 short days at Casa Portagioia with the incredible hosts, Terry and Marcello.....just wish we'd have allowed more time to enjoy the beautiful property and surrounding areas. We will definitely plan more days the next go round! The grounds and views are spectacular, the rooms beautiful and the food was the best of our 11 days in Italy. We highly recommend you partake in one of their weekly dinners. Marcello and Terry have done an incredible job of creating a beautiful retreat and are the consummate hosts. Great location for hiking, biking and visiting the many hilltowns located in the area. We had an easy drikve to Arezzo, Cortona, Montalcino, Pienza and San Quirco.

The self-contained apartment was perfect for my husband and me and our adult daughter. While we had our own excellent kitchen, we couldn't resist the beautiful breakfasts prepared by Marcello and his exquisite pastries every morning. Terry and Marcello were the most gracious and knowledgeable hosts, providing indepth advice on our daily excursions and giving us insights into life in the Tuscan countryside. The setting is exquisite and serene and garden lovers will be captivated by the beauty of the grounds. This is truly and exceptional destination and extremely accessible to all that Tuscany has to offer.

OMG.. This was my 5th trip to Italy but never to Tuscany, we "LOVED IT"!! There is so much I could say about our stay at Casa Portagioia but they only give you 50 characters to write. If your considering going to Tuscany, stay here. Casa Portagioia is located in the most amazing spot (as they say in Italian, BELLA)!! The rooms are absolutely SPOTLESS... I mean SPOTLESS. The breakfast that is served every morning is perfect (fruits, bananas with NO bruises, berries, yogarts, cereals) and eggs, fresh cheese and a slice of ham.. and my favorite, fresh squeezed orange juice. Terry and Marcello are just the "BEST" hostesses. They truly bend over backwards to help you out. They printed out our daily drive if they heard we wanted to go exploring. They greeted you every morning with wonderful stories or places to go see. But our favorite was the romantic dinner Marcello made for us, he is a great cook.. it was a five course meal and every bit of perfection. We enjoyed this stay more then any B&B we have ever stayed at as well as any 5 star hotel, and we travel quit a bit. You really would be making a great choice to stay here.
