Meet Your Owner

Bruce and Elizabeth, Melbourne Australia

We are fortunate to have travelled many times to Europe, most particularly to Italy and France. As a result we subscribe to Italia (and France) magazine, which we pore over as soon as it arrives.

In February this year we spotted a small article about Borgo di Vagli and it struck a chord. After starting to correspond with Lee to get answers to all of the obvious questions, we discussed and confirmed all of the reasons why we have never gone ahead with a property investment in Europe. Yes, the 22 hour flying time was number one on the list. However, the more we investigated, the more attractive it seemed. We had already booked our Northern Hemisphere Summer vacation for June/July so decided to incorporate a Discovery Visit then. In the first week of March, everything was organised and then I had one of those silly (brilliant) ideas.

Owner's Photo Competition

And the winner of this months Owner’s photo competition goes to Tom O’Donnell, Northumbria UK. Although taken in May, Tom’s photo auspiciously catches this tone of this summer’s weather; unsettled, moody and welcoming in a heartbeat. As we continue to increase our photo gallery, we encourage all of our owners and their unaccompanied guests to email: with their own favourite photos of Borgo di Vagli in high resolution.
