“The Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

The 5 star reviews say it all. It's hard to imagine that anything you might wish for in a vacation is not available at Casa Portagioia. We have visited a number of times and really cannot imagine staying anywhere else. The homelike atmosphere, food.. both breakfasts and beautiful dinners are delicious and relaxing. Guests seem to acknowledge how they feel by carrying on conversations about the loveliness of it all...the next thing you know you have new acquaintances, further adding to your pleasure. It is a must see and experience, if you are in Tuscany don't miss it!

When I think of a trip to Tuscany I envision groves of olives trees flowing into vineyards of grapes and fields of flowers, scattered with Italian Cyprus trees along a stunning countryside. I imagine good Food, good wine, good friends and a feeling of peace and contentment that all is well with the world. . .
At Casa Portagoia I have experienced all of this and so much more. I find myself daydreaming of the comfort of the beds, crisp, clean, coziness of the room, warmth of the towels, the view out my window, the song of the nightingale. The scent of the roses in full bloom. The olives filling the branches and the joy of tasting the fabulous oil that is produced from them. I have tasted the grape off the vine and with friends, happily shared a few bottles of semplicemente Rosa the wine that they yielded. I have had a true Italian Cappuccino in the morning sitting under the pergola surrounded by flower gardens and sunshine. Breakfast can easily compete with any five star restaurant and If you are lucky enough to be at a dinner party you will be sure to note it in your book of wonderful memories. The only thing left and what I miss the most is the proprietors. Terry and Marcello or Marcello and Terry (just to alleviate the competitive spirit that they have). These men are kind, funny, talented, knowledgeable and devoted to making your stay perfect and you wanting more. They have succeeded. I think of it as my home in Tuscany. Keep the light on.

Recently my sister, brother in law, and boyfriend visited Tuscany for 3 days straight and it was the BEST part of our trip. Monchello and Terri are charming and hilarious hosts. Monchello is a fabulous cook and the breakfast is delicious. One day we could not find a place to eat lunch and he whipped us each up something on the spot. There are flowers, specifically roses, blooming all over the property. If I could live here, I would. Loved everything about the experience and hope it won't be too long before visiting again.

There are so many wonderful reviews about Casa Portagioia that there is little new I can add. Suffice to say the place is as wonderful as the best reviews say it is, Terry and Marcello are as amazing as they sound, and it seems impossible that anyone could stay here and not immediately wonder how soon they can return. The landscape is exquisite, you feel as if you are a familiar guest in a beautiful villa, and the food, both breakfast and the optional dinner, is top restaurant quality. You fall asleep to the sweet song of the nightingales, and you wake up to tranquil surroundings, gorgeous gardens, a fine selection of delicious breakfast foods, and Marcello and Terry’s warmth and wit. Really, what could be better?

In the past I have rated other hotels and B & B's a 5 Star, so how on Earth can I only be allowed to give Casa Portagioia only 5 stars as well, when it is head and shoulders THE BEST accommodation I have EVER had the pleasure of staying at......

You only have to read any previous review to understand that you will love your stay here, no question. As a matter of fact I feel SO fortunate to have had the opportunity to stay here. This place is beautiful beyond words for me.

But what sets it apart and sends it way above any other accommodation in the World is Marcello and Terry. These guys are the Heart and Soul of Casa Portagioia. The blood, sweat and tears it must have taken these two to rescue this old farmhouse to transform it into what it is today has to be seen to be believed.

PLUS, Marcello and Terry are two of the most loveliest, generous and sweetest guys you could ever wish to meet. They are very hands on from making one of the best dinners we have ever had, breakfasts to die for, the grounds and flowers are out of this world, and the rooms are decorated with every comfort you could ever want, including the best bed I've ever slept on!

The only down side for us staying here was having to leave........

Thank you Terry and Marcello for giving us a wonderful memory that we will never forget.

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Italy. We spent two wonderful days at Casa Portagioia based on the reviews here at TripAdvisor. It lived up to expectations - the room was comfortable and private, the breakfasts were delicious, and Terry and Marcello were wonderful hosts.

We also spent time in Venice at the San Clemente Palace Hotel and Resort - Casa Portagioia was by far our favorite!

We last visited Casa Portagioia in September 2010 and vowed that we would be back. We were fortunate to be able to return in May 2014. We are not ones to write reviews, and while taking every opportunity to travel, we never return to the same location - why would anyone do that? Our reasons are clear - our first trip here was the highlight of our travels in 2010. Our second trip only exceeded our first because the grounds were even more beautiful 4 years later and our hosts treated us like old friends. We felt right 'at home' from the moment we arrived! We can honestly say that we have never stayed anywhere, stateside or abroad, that we enjoyed more than Casa Portagioia. You never want to leave!

Everything you have read about Terry and Marcello is true and their haven is the perfect home base whether you want to rest or explore Tuscany. You will not regret spending time here. If you can stay for one of their home cooked meals in the evening, you will taste some of the best cuisine in the area! Our only complaint was that they could not wave their magic wand and control the rainy weather -- I thought you could do anything, Terry! Even in the rainy weather, our stay was exceptional. Thank you again, Terry and Marcello, for a delightful visit. We hope to see you again in the 'not too distant future'! Best regards, Sam and Theresa
