Boston, USA

Thomas & Shari Marquis,

We have family homes in Duxbury (Boston) Massachusetts & Naples, Florida and we both have shared a dream of one day owning a pied-a-terre in Tuscany, Italy. That dream has now become a reality having recently purchased at Borgo di Vagli; a beautiful restored 14th century Tuscan stone hamlet.The quiet and spectacular location, restoration, finish and genuine antique furniture coupled with the friendliness and helpfulness shown by all the management and staff during our inspection during our trip made the decision to buy effortless.Given our profession as realtors, the simplicity of purchasing at the hamlet was a revelation to us. The process took one hour. Low key but professional. As they use a UK-based trust company, there were no legal fees or closing costs. We thoroughly enjoyed the traditional Tuscan Fairs and the ambiance in the hamlet’s trattoria, it was a great opportunity to meet other Club Owners and guests and listen to their stories while learning tips from their daily excursions. The evening we will cherish for years to come.Because of the close proximity to so many beautiful places of interest we took day trips every day to places like Cortona, Lake Trassimano, Montepulciano, & Siena. Plus easy train access to Florence. But now that we are owners we can take comfort in the knowledge we will have time to explore and appreciate them fully. We are already longing to return to our new Tuscan Home next year.As past President of the Greater Boston Real Estate Board and the Massachusetts Association of Realtors I can strongly recommend this as a great value.
