We just returned from our second stay at ’The Casa’ which is truly our home when in Tuscany. This Bed and Breakfast villa is situated a few miles from Castiglion among olive trees and vineyards, beautifully landscaped and serene with lovely accommodations and outstanding breakfasts, but it is also the personal attention and personalities of our two hosts, Terry and Marcello, that draw us back. They are helpful beyond what one expects from proprietors. If a guest needs reservations made for a museum, train or just directions or recommendations, one often expects help from the proprietor, but Terry and Marcello go that extra mile. When our daughter, in the States, contacted them with special requests, whether ordering flowers or setting up arrangements for a surprise dinner celebration for us, they were happy to accommodate. Terry and Marcello and their lovely Casa Portagioia are tops.
