Meet Your Owner

Tony and Wendy Yeldell

I fell in love with Italy during my first visit to Vicenza many years ago and never forgot the beauty of Venice, the delicious food. I was hooked. I am also a fan of the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun". After I watched it the first time, the memories of beautiful Italy came rushing back.

Owner's Photo Competition

Trofie with burrata cream, cherry tomatoes and pesto

For those of you who haven’t yet visited Borgo di Vagli and for those who had the enjoyment of experiencing Dina’s mouth-watering casalinga cuisine in the Hamlet’s trattoria I’ cche c’é c’é, in each newsletter we continue to highlight one of Dina's popular recipes for you to try at home, this month we highlight Tiziana’s Trofie with burrata, cheery tomorates and pesto Trofie is short pasta that originates from Liguria similar to Pici (no eggs) but shorter and twisted!

Tip of the Month

Each month we highlight a place of interest around the globe that we consider as unique as Borgo di Vagli. The tips are selected as they either show respect for the environment, nature, and architectural beauty or are deeply indigenous to their individual origin and this month we encapsulate all of these components. This month we highlight Fulvio’s recent trip to Bratislava
