“Beautiful B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

Thank you to Terry & Marcello for making my short stay in July '13 of this year so wonderful. I can't fault the warm welcome, stunning room and setting, gorgeous food, and amazing gardens. I would thoroughly recommend this beautiful place to others looking for a nice break to the Tuscan countryside.

This is one place we would never had found had it not been for the tripadvisor community. In fact, we had difficulty finding it at night driving from Rome but we received excellent direction after calling for help. We felt quite welcomed arriving after hours. Waking up to the beautiful views of Tuscany was truly a delight. And breakfast was both special and delicious. Exploring the towns of Assisi and Cortona was definitely a treat. This place is beautiful and comes highly recommended by everyone who has been lucky enough to visit. Thank you Marcello and Terry for a wonderful stay! It was the perfect stay on our way to Florence.

We visited as a party of 6 in late October and had a wonderful and memorable stay. Our gracious and caring hosts, Terry and Marcello were absolutely wonderful: Excellent breakfasts each day comprising fresh eggs, ham, tomatoes, croissants, and complemented with coffee and fresh exotic fruit, some of which we had never experienced before, a prickly pear and a persimmon. The rooms are large, very clean and well appointed with a comfortable bed and on-suite bathroom. The gardens are also wonderful with a wide and varied landscaping which includes a swimming pool, vineyard, olive trees, lemons, limes and much more. The approach to the property is via a beautiful driveway lined with cypress trees. The location is very quiet and serene about 5km from Castiglione Fiorentino, which in turn is a small and beautiful medieval town. There are many great walks available from the property, two of our party took one of them along a ridge into the town itself. Terry and Marcello were also great in giving local advice on places to visit and eat, and making bookings for us. The local restaurants recommended by them are good quality and reasonably priced. I have no hesitation in adding my endorsement as a wonderful place and location to visit and stay when in Tuscany.

After just returning from a week's stay at Casa Portagioia, I have to reinforce the positive reviews found here (which is how we discovered this Tuscan gem). The setting couldn't be more beautiful - the grounds are stunning and immaculately maintained. The room was comfortable with obvious attention to all the little details that some B&B's seem to forget.

Terry and Marcello are wonderful hosts and were always ready with information about specific towns we considered visiting for day trips as well as restaurant recommendations. They even led us to the best place to find a new pair of sunglasses (since I broke mine on the trip).

Especially for English speaking guests, I don't think one could find a better place to stay in the region with such stunning accommodations and personal service.

Our stay at Casa Portagioia was a warm and rewarding experience and one of our most memorable events. It was a pleasure to encounter the two people who made this memorable occasion possible. The immaculate manicured surrounding grounds and home reflects their warm and friendly personalities. It was a perfected vacation. We would highly recommend your bed and breakfast as a notch above all others and definitely would have a return visit.

We had the most awesome stay, it was as if we had been asked to play a part in a Tuscan movie for a few days. The bed, the rooms, the breakfasts and the sincere hospitality from our hosts Marcello and Terry just made our stay so memorable, we will be definitely be going back some day soon. A definite 5 stars from us!

We could not have been happier with our one week stay at Casa Portagioia. Marcello and Terry were amazing hosts. Sight-seeing recommendations, wine recommendations, restaurant reservations: they did it all. Terry let us borrow a GPS without which we would probably still be wandering around Tuscany totally lost. Our room was clean, comfortable, spacious with all the amenities one would expect at a first class establishment. The bathroom was modern and spotless. Although it was too cool during our stay to use it, the property has a very nice pool for use in warm weather. The grounds are gorgeous with lots of well tended flowers. Breakfasts were wholesome and delicious with a wide variety of local fruits and baked goods. And of course it is in Tuscany, one of the most beautiful areas we've ever had the privilege of visiting. Although not the least expensive B&B in Tuscany, it is good value for money. We definitely plan to return one day.
