This B&B is located in a beautiful wine valley. It was a little out of the way from where we wanted to explore, but we were more than happy to have a longer drive every day to be able to stay at Casa Portagioia. We felt like the B&B was a tranquil paradise on earth.
Terry and Marcello are excellent and charming hosts with great personalities. Marcello is an outstanding chef who makes the best eggs and ham that I have ever had, and the breakfast spread includes a large array of fresh fruits, pastries, breads, cereal, and yogurt. Marcello also makes a wonderful and romantic dinner about 2 times a week, and I highly recommend staying for dinner. The food was absolutely delicious, and coupled with the outdoor setting in a garden rivaled the best Italian restaurants.
The rooms are a good size with beautiful views. The beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms are clean. Terry and Marcello have thought of every detail including toothbrush holders. The whole place is absolutely beautiful with lush English gardens, Tuscan decor, and a gorgeous surrounding landscape. The pool is relaxing and worth a day on its own to soak up the Tuscan sun and enjoy the view.
My husband and I travel a lot, and we don't like to repeat places because there is so much in the world to see. However, we do plan to return to Casa Portagioia because we loved our time there so much.
