The Bed and Breakfast Residenza i Tre Portali is located 1 kilometer from the Medieval Historical Center of Tarquinia. The elegantly restored and furnished establishment was the historical country dwelling of Cardinale Quaglia in the 1800's.
Beautifully furnished bed and breakfast in the 18th century Historical country house of Cardinal Quaglia in Tarquinia, Italy. There are 3 private rooms with bath and separate entrance.If it says booked, I could still have rooms available. Nestled in the countryside but not far from the Historical Center of Tarquinia. The superior rooms have a panoramic view of the Medieval City. Just 40 miles from the center of Rome and only 9miles from the Port of Rome in Civitavecchia.

bellissimo b&b nella campagna con vista sulla città medievale di Tarquinia, camera molto comoda, spaziosa e silenziosa. Ottima e abbondante la colazione. Un b&b ideale per un fine settimana fuori città, sicuramente un posto in cui tornare
We were so pleasantly surprised by this villa. It was everything and more than we expected. The photos did not do it justice. Once we passed through the gates we were on the well-landscaped grounds.our room opened onto a large terrace from which we could see the ancient Roman and Etruscan village of Tarquinia about a mile away.This was an infinitely interesting place where had many delicious meals and many wonderful walks.this was not a place plaguesd by the hoards of tourists that Rome is...at least not in October. It was the perfect place for us to chill out before going on a cruise. Last but not least, our hostess looked after us well. Great breakfasts on the terrace...one mid morning when we were slow getting going she brought us a big dish of water melon. She did not speak English nor did we speak Italian but we got on well. I would highly recommend this villa.we loved (website hidden). Sherri was also really helpful in explaining the area to us. We went to to beach, 20 minutes away on her recommendation
This was the icing on the cake to stay at this magnificent estate overlooking ancient Tarquinia. It exceeded our expectations. The host and hostess were very welcoming. We had a bit of a communication differences but we made ourselves understood. We had to leave very, very early and the hostess accommodated us by having a light breakfast ready for us at 5am. Fabulous property and accommodations. You felt like royalty staying here!!!
La splendida villa si trova in una tenuta verdissima e perfettamente curata. è appena fuori dal centro di Tarquinia, che si riesce a raggiungere in macchina in soli 5 minuti. Si ha una vista fantastica sulla città di Tarquinia e fare colazione nel giardino è davvero splendido.
Gentilissima la sign. Celeste che ci ha accolti e perfetta la comunicazione via telefono con Sherri.
Celeste was very warm and kind. She does not speak English at all. But you can use wi-fi and dictionary to communicate with her. Place is wonderful to walk around.
Abbiamo soggiornato alla Residenza solo per una notte, di passaggio da Tarquinia. La struttura è molto bella, immersa nei giardini, e gode di ottima posizione: subito fuori il centro storico, che si può ammirare in tutto il suo splendore dal giardino. A 5 minuti dalle spiagge, ma anche vicinissima a splendide località come Tuscania, Viterbo, Tolfa.
Celeste ci ha accolto con grande gentilezza ma massima discrezione, e ci ha fatto trovare ottimi cornetti appena sfornati per colazione.
Purtroppo la stanza in cui abbiamo soggiornato era al piano terra, e non godeva quindi della splendida vista di altre, ma aveva solo una piccola finestra in alto; speriamo quindi di tornare presto alla Residenza, quando, finiti i lavori, sarà ancora più bella di quanto già non sia!
Our stay here was great. Beautiful clean room with shower, tv, fridge and private entry with a beautiful view in a beautiful part of italy. Would recommend tarquinia and this place for anyone wanting to go to smaller italian country village. Breakfast was also quite good - coffee and croissants. The host did not speak any english so would recommend having a few basic lines down if can only speak english. She was very welcoming though and would be great if you are trying to learn italian. Thank you for the stay. Will recommend it to my friends and family.

About the Host, Sherri
I've been living in Italy for 20 years. I am here to help out with booking and customer care and give you with useful tourist information to make your stay enjoyable and authentic.
Just a few tips for traveling to Italy; At all the churches in Italy, proper attire is appropriate and no short shorts(thighs) or shoulders should be (website hidden) the summer months I carry a scarf with me to cover my shoulders when I enter a church. Etiquette applies to women as well to men. In Naples, don't cut the pasta, if you have a hard time twirling the spaghetti on the fork, slurp it up and stain your shirt, but don't cut it. In all of Italy, never cross arms of other people when you shake hands nor toast (very bad luck). Coffee is drank after your meal and not during. In Italy, the coffee is expresso. You can ask for an American coffee but they will bring you an expresso with extra water and look at you funny. Italians take a siesta from 2-4pm and it is polite not to talk loudly in the streets at that hour. At 7pm, most bars will have "l'apperitivo" where the locals meet, talk about their day and share a glass of wine with free appetizers, then go home for dinner. Things to eat; Tarfufo nero ice cream at Piazza Navona infront of the Bernini fountain. It's a chocolate lovers delight! In Naples you have to have an "Aragosto" or "sfogliattella" in a pastry shop or a"Baba". I'll stop here , Everything is good in Italy!
