Steve and Lota Hahn, Green Mills, Pennsylvania USA
We feel very blessed to have found Borgo di Vagli! We had been traveling to Italy since 2001, and had been leasing beautifully restored villas in various parts of Tuscany. We fell in love with Tuscany and Umbria and we dreamed that one day we could own there so we could have place to come with family and friends over the years.
Steve is half Italian and it seemed that the Italian way of life was one of those experiences we had to embrace.
And the winner of this months Owner’s photo competition once again goes to Jeremy Bilham from Hampshire UK.
This month we award Jeremy for his ageless shot taken from the small medieval town of Panicale, located south of Lake Trasimeno looking south across the hills towards Orvieto. The pale colors highlight the morning mist lifting from the valley. Jeremy intentionally kept the image grainy and undefined to enhance the visionary and dreamy message.
