,We enjoyed every bit of our 3 day visit at this B and B. Although it was situated in an old renovated building the room was modern and charming; comfortable, wifi, great shower, a back balcony with lines and clips to hang laundry and the breakfast was delicious including fresh fruit, yogurt, fresh pastries, cheese, ham....An adorable young couple owns...

It was our first time in Calabria and thanks to Sharon and Biagio definitely not the last. Beautiful settings, decorated by Sharon's father and grandfather paintings. She inherited their sense of style and art! Portercole has everything you need for a perfect stay. Thank you guys!

We love it and can't wait to return! You are right in the middle of town, the location is perfect, and The owners make you feel like family. We just spent eight days in Venice and 10 days in Sicily, and this little gem is a highlight! We only booked two nights on our way from Sicily to Rome, But... More

We have traveled all over Italy and by far B & B Portercole is the best of all. Biagio and Sharon are the most professional hoteliers I have come across. They tend to every detail you can imagine. The rooms are as clean as are home everything is fresh and clean. Breakfast is done by the both of them and... More

Very clean, spacious room and bathroom, great facilities-free wi-fi (excellent connection), even beach towels and flip flops were there. The breakfast was amazing.

B&B Portercole was the third stop on our Honeymoon in southern Italy. The location is brilliant, right in the heart of the old town. You step out of the door and you are just a two minute walk from steps down to the main beach. Behind you is the buzzing nightlife area, a Piazza fringed by bars. Ahead of you... More

The family (2 adults and two children) stayed at Portercole in June 2014 for two nights, staying in the Ulysses and Sirens rooms on the first floor (stairs only). These are the two double rooms with views of the town; parents in one room and kids in the room directly across. Both had large bathrooms, were very clean, comfortable, cool,... More

OK, maybe not so perfect in that we had to stop at the flower shop to find out where it was located (GPS next trip), after that, perfect. Biagio and Sharon made a hands-on study of the high-end hotel business and then set to work to replicate it with four rooms. You can walk anywhere you might want to go... More
