Meet Your Owner


David and Jo Hoeppner Waller, Texas, USA

One of our bucket list items has long been to spend Christmas in Italy, and having just completed our purchase as new owners in August of this year, we thought why not? So, we scrambled to arrange vacation days for everyone, watched for the best airfare we could get and the seven of us (a mix of ourselves, our oldest daughter, son-in-law and grandson, our Los Angeles based 24-year-old son, and our 19-year-old daughter) were off to The Borgo!
