Villa Portofino Reviews
- Susan L.(Resident/Homeowner)|June 6, 2013Portofino is a really unique little community that brings me back to vacations in Italy. Well, ok, I'd rather actually live in Italy but the architecture here is reminiscent! I like the stone streets and winding trails, the clay tile roofs, fountains and arching windows. I moved in here a few years back and really like how special it feels here. The homes are not your typical cookie-cutter style and all the community features are very nice. The mountain views are beautiful too!
