We had been considering a real estate investment in Tuscany for sometime and thought to research the area around Cortona after week’s cooking school last May. During the many hours searching for property on the Internet we auspiciously came across Borgo di Vagli Fractional Ownership Club.
Ownership in a 14th century medieval Hamlet intrigued us both and we agreed this opportunity needed further investigation. We were already excited about the prospect of a “Home in Tuscany” and booked an inspection discovery visit so we could experience the Hamlet, the team’s hospitality and get to know the area whilst making a decision.
Upon arrival, we realized immediately that Borgo was exactly what we were looking for and so our decision was made easy. We purchased the two bedroom residence category in June and returned in mid September and stayed at our “Home in Tuscany” for 4 consecutive weeks. During our stay we enjoyed many activities such as sightseeing, wine-tasting, golfing, and dinning out. One of the highlights of our stay was attending a contemporary music concert in Florence at Palazzo Pitti, arranged by Borgo’s architect and now friend Fulvio Di Rosa.
Borgo di Vagli is ideal for us, it suits our lifestyle, and the beauty of the setting is breathtaking. The hamlet has been authentically restored, the integrity of which has not been compromised, thanks to Fulvio Di Rosa’s keen eye to detail and respect for the rural architecture.
The silence is refreshing. The Hamlet offers owners and their guests an intimate getaway whereas day to day vacationing is as spontaneous with as much adventure as you desire. We have particularly enjoyed meeting other owners from the other parts of North America, the UK, and Norway in the hamlet’s trattoria and also marveled at wildlife sightings of wild boar, silver fox and deer.
The staff is passionate, dedicated and committed to assist and welcoming you. As owners, we feel part of a warm, loving, Italian family. We plan to make Borgo di Vagli our home away from home for many years to come. Oh, and in terms of an investment, we are seriously considering purchasing a second fractional.
