Borgo Di Vagli “Is Under The Tuscan Sun” – Plus! My experience at Borgo di Vagli cannot be described in a few words. As an American and as a person who has travelled the world, I have found my home away from home. This is truly a place to return again and again with family or cherished friends. It will take a lifetime to experience and see the splendours of the area and to fully appreciate our historical origins. Borgo di Vagli the only private resort that is a city within itself and yet near Cortona and all of the Tuscan splendours, yet a easy drive to Rome or Florence. The opportunity to experience a 14th century village which has been renovated to a 4 star resort of modern magnificence, while keeping the original character, is not to be missed by anyone who enjoys culture, history, Epicurean delights and beauty. I was struck by the beauty of the view from Borgo di Vagli. The interior décor and modern amenities inside the original restored structure pleased my every senses. I let my imagination run away thinking of centuries ago of the people who may have lived here. In my many world travels, I could easily pick a favorite room at my destination. All of the rooms in each residence at Borgo di Vagli became my favorite. The Tuscan décor is easy to live with and so comfortable. At first I fell in love with the authentic fireplace in the living room, then I could not help but gaze at the kitchen. I have seen no other like it. The sink, cabinets, countertop, all the way to the copper cook ware displayed were 14th century replicas. The dishwasher and refrigerator were hidden behind wood panel doors, reminiscent of 14th century cabinets. The dishes are truly beautiful. The furnishings and décor are way above the standard fare found at most resorts. I viewed every residence at Borgo di Vagli and found the same beauty in each. The bedrooms and bathrooms are glorious. Every room became my favorite. The staff are exceptional.
