Meet Your Owner

Mr Mark Elston and Ms Alexandra Garcia, San Diego, USA

We happened to find out about Borgo di Vagli quite by accident. While planning a trip to Europe in the fall of 2010 an Internet search turned up the hamlet and it peaked our curiosity. It was a very intriguing project and the location, as virtually everyone would say, captured our imaginations to spend time in such a wonderful place.

Owner's Photo Competition

And the winner of this months Owner’s photo competition once again goes to Lionel Pottier from Paris, France.

Lionel sent us this picture of the famous Chapel of the Madonna di Vitaleta. This is one of the most photographed churches in Tuscany, this mystical building used to be the home of a Renaissance statue of the Madonna sculpted by the artist, Andrea della Robbia in 1590.
