Description of the Cortona vacation b&b rental
Casa Portagioia is a small estate in Castiglion Fiorentino near Cortona Tuscany with 5 independent guest bedrooms for bed and breakfast '''''' all with luxury bathrooms and 2 apartments which can accommodate 2 '''''' 4 guests. Offering excellent privacy, a heated swimming pool and gorgeous scenery, it is perfect for a peaceful break in the countryside or to explore the delights of Tuscany and Umbria.

More important is the fact that we know how much planning goes into a holiday and that there is too long a space between vacations. Here at Casa Portagioia, relaxation is the keyword. We look after our guests every need, from a leisurely breakfast overlooking olive groves, helping arrange your day trips to the fabulous sites of Tuscany and Umbria - and when just a lazy day is planned, our heated pool with its gorgeous views of the Valle di Chio will get you ready for the various restaurants of Cortona, Arezzo and Castiglion Fiorentino. You may even be staying here when we offer our guests dinner (twice a week), a very relaxed 5 course freshly prepared menu and some very interesting Tuscan wines.

''''''A bed and breakfast in Tuscany that will make you relaxed the moment you enter their cypress tree-lined driveway - and one of the happy memories to take home along with all the Tuscan treasures you have seen ''''''

Wonderful Place, Highly Recommended!

January 13, 2007

We had such a wonderful and relaxing time staying with you on our most recent trip to Italy. Casa Portagioia was such the perfect stop on our vacation. We've told everyone about it and how it's the closest to the perfect Tuscan fantasy. All of our friends, who were with us in Venice, were jealous when we spoke about the fantastic food and gracious hospitality - not to mention the serene setting. I know that on our next trip to Italy, we'll definitely want to make a stop. Thank you, again, for a most wonderful time

We stayed at Casa Portagioia for the whole two weeks of our holiday and what a great decision that turned out to be. As a base to all peace,tranquility and relaxation Casa could not be beaten. We were really comfortable in the excellent accomodation , loved the pool , relished the breakfasts and longed for fresh pasta and salad lunches (made with such care by Marcello). The scenery was fantastic and 2 weeks allowed us to explore all of the nearby towns Florence was superb, Pienza a delight & Anghiari charming but we also loved walking in the hills and valley near Casa Portagioia. Overall a superb place

Thank you both for making our stay in Tuscany so wonderful. The transition back to reality isn't much fun, but I am surviving. I spend a great deal of time trying to come up with a brilliant business that would justify a quick return to Italy. PR is one ---I have promoted Casa Portagioia to everyone. . .not a difficult task.

The week we spent at Casa Portagioia was wonderful in every respect. We were taken care of beautifully - the countryside was enchanting, the people gracious and we hope to return someday. Must say that the breakfasts after we left were a disappointment after having wonderful fruit, coffee and eggs each day. We were spoiled (and we loved it!). This is a gem!

What a special time we had with you and a repeat visit is definitely planned for next year. I'm doing a Tuscany promotion through my company next month so if you get flooded with bookings from eager South Africans, I really enjoyed meeting you both. You;ve done wonders with the property and you deserve every bit of success you have.

We both feel that our most enjoyable time in Italy was with you two. We were just reminissing yesterday about the wonderful meal Marcello cooked, not to mention the nice breakfasts, late lunches I'm glad it was warm while we were there as I really enjoyed the pool

Thank you for making our first visit to Tuscany a memorable one. We strongly appreciate all the hard work involved to make Casa POrtagoia the very special place it is (not forgetting the attention to detail which did not go unnoticed). Both of us can honestly say that we felt very much at home during our stay - that only happens when the hosts are as kind and friendly as you both were, we thank you for that. Looking forward to our next visit
