Meet Your Owner

Michael, Susan and Natalie Farver, Plantation, Florida USA.

Greetings, fellow owners and lovers of all things Borgo di Vagli. I was thrilled when Lee asked me to write a bit about our family for the Vagli Echo. Susan and I were one of the first (actually, #10) purchasers of our 1/10th Fractional interest in the Hamlet, back on November 12, 2006. We signed the paperwork a bit before dinner, sitting at the dining room table in Unit #18, less than 20 hours after we had arrived for our inspection trip. Not that I kept notes ...

Owner's Photo Competition

And the winner of this months Owner’s photo competition goes to Dan and Dotty Gigler from Pittsburgh, PA, USA

We had seen the boar “family” to the right of the lane while exiting BDV the previous early evening.  This time, they were on the olive grove side, as I said, having a little pre-dinner “nosh” among the trees. I didn’t want to frighten them away, nor did I want to invite them to come our way.  So I just slowed the car and as quietly as possible lined up the shot and waited for the guy in front to look my way.  When he did so, I got the picture and my emotion was, “OK, let’s get the hell out of here before they attack!”  In truth I’m sure they were being as cautious of us as we were of them, and I was a little surprised that they didn’t run away as I focused the camera.
