What can we say?! We never felt so welcomed before! Sharon and Biaggio go out of there way and make you feel at home! You feel as if you're staying with family. Breakfast, the wifi, the bed, the room itself, the location; just simply everything was excellent. Sharon also arranged for us a taxi to get us to the airport... More

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 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

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
