La Portazza Resort is a beautiful and lovely place where you instantly feel welcome. Basically, the hosts share their home with you, which adds to the feeling of not being a tourist but a welcome friend. The rooms are quite large, comfortable and have brand new and very nice bathrooms. You could certainly spend a whole week in the large...

It was as if we were visiting long lost relatives! The moment Antonio greeted us and showed us our wonderful room with a vista of the ocean nearby, we felt instantly at home. The surrounding lush gardens he impeccably maintains was our breakfast backdrop while planning our daily sojourns, delectably completed each evening with numerous scrumptious Sicilian delights he &...

We stayed four nights in the Antica Dimora part of the La Portazza resort, the ancestral home set in lovely gardens and ideally located for exploring the Marsala/Trapani coast and beyond. Our ground floor bedroom (Nonna Angela) included a separate sitting room which converted into a comfortable double sofa bed, perfect for our 14 year old son. The house and...

The location is wonderful, close to Marsala and well connected to Trapani and the airport, it is a stone's throw away from the side side and the saline. The building and garden are beautiful, curated, relaxing... Antonio and Luisa are friendly, caring and helpful.

La Portazza was perfect for our group. We were made to feel welcome and at home from the moment we came through the front gate. Our rooms were wonderful. The food was outstanding - featuring local favorites always paired with the right wine. In addition to the old city of Marsala, one can easily visit Segesta, Erice, and Trapani with...

This family owned property, close to sea, was such a great experience. Salvatore and family made us so welcomed. Rooms were great, setting relaxing and food delicious. We were welcomed as if we were part of their extended family and enjoyed meeting other travelers. Was sad to go!!

Worth staying for the food alone. Quite simply the best meals we have had at an agriturismo. The location is on the edge of Marsala, so while the immediate surroundings are nothing special, it's a good location for touring the area. Lovely garden, a very genial host in Antonio, and pleasant rooms. The dinners at 30 euros a head were...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The holiday farm, immersed in the amazing scenery of the Stagnone Natural Reservation in Marsala, is hosted inside an eighteenth century "baglio", that is a typical Sicilian structure belonging to a noble family and recently refurbished. The name of the farm (portazza is door) comes from an ancient gate leading to the Lilybeum harbour, the largest in Sicily, which later the Arabs called Marzakalla, God's Harbour, whence the present name of Marsala town. In 1800 the land was purchased by a noble family, the Montaltos, who built there a "baglio", a typical rural building characterized by a large internal court, as well as several lodgings, stables, stores for the harvest, surrounded by farmed lands. The "baglio" was inhabited by the landowners themselves during the summertime, but also by the farmers who worked there all the year round or for the season. The structure had remained unchanged till the recent refurbishing which permitted a restoration respectful of the existing building and, at the same time, its transformation into a comfortable farm based on rural tourism activities. ... more   less
