Tony and Sue Shortland,

On a grey day in April, the views from Borgo di Vagli were outstanding, and one can only imagine how spectacular they will be in the full bloom of an Italian summer.Engineer Fulvio di Rosa and his team have created wonderful interiors to complement the views, with beautiful antique furniture along side fully modern kitchens and bathrooms. We were extremely impressed with the attention paid to even the smallest detail.We were lucky enough to be the first to enjoy fresh bread cooked in the wood oven, and we look forward very much to savouring our first feast in the cosy trattoria, along with all the other treats Vagli has to offer, when we “claim” our little piece of Tuscany later in the year.OctoberWe returned to Vagli on a bright golden day in October. There was a gentle mellowness everywhere, which complemented the old stone buildings so well. Our residence was so cosy and inviting that even the little bird tapping at the window appeared to want to come in to share it with us. We were absolutely delighted with our purchase, which already feels like a second home even after one short week. It was fascinating to watch Fulvio’s team turning the old milking shed into the new alimentari, and we are looking forward with great anticipation to seeing the further changes to our little spot in Tuscany when we next return.
