Meet Your Owner

David and Susan Di Paolo Tyler, Texas USA

My wife, Sue and I first learned of Borgo di Vagli in 2009, through an associate of my cousin John, who offered us a stay at the Hamlet for a week. The hamlet was a radical departure and pleasant surprise after spending nights in uninspired rooms of traditional hotel chains.

Owner's Photo Competition

And the winner of this months Owner’s photo competition goes to David Cooper from Ottawa, Canada

David took this image one morning when he was helping Dina and her family harvest the olives. David beautifully captured the essence of the Tuscan countryside at this time of the year when everybody who knows someone with an olive grove lends a hand and the 10th Century Pierle Castle in the background reminds us of Tuscany’s rich architectural and feudal history.
