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... More

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... More

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... More

This was our third time at La Portazza. We have loved Sicily and could not resist another stay with Antonio and Luisa. Antonio is a charming, knowledgeable and a gracious host. We always have our dinners at La Portazza and Antonio and his family never disappoint. On our first night, Antonio remembered a favourite Sicilian dish of mine and surprised... More

We were so surprised, when we entered the gates, of La Portazza, after driving through, the rather plain streets of outer Marsala, leading to the B & B.It is truly a beautiful property. The rooms are very tastefully furnished, with a comfortable bed and a good bathroom. (however, lighting in bathroom, a bit dim) The garden, terrace and pool area,... More

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
