Casa Portagioia is close to the town of Castiglion Fiorentino. This is a bucolic, working, rural area where the maintenance of vines, olive groves and vast fields of sunflowers provide many of the locals population a livelihood. Aside from this, there really are plentiful wild boar and wild horses ranging through the almost impenetrably fecund hillsides.
Visiting Casa Portagioia is about peace and tranquillity, comfort and unwinding. However, most visitors want to get a flavour of Tuscan life and visit the many fascinating historic, architecturally amazing and religious sites (see Attractions) - for this a car is pretty much a necessity.
Otherwise, Casa Portagioia there are bike facilities and a gentle 30min cycle through our glorious countryside will take you to Castiglion Fiorentino Train Station where regular trains access Rome, Florence. Arezzo and Siena. Florence (Firenze) is roughly a 1hr train journey and sets you down in the very heart of this magical city.
