TESTIMONIAL - Denmark


 

Denmark

Gitten Hammerberg & Jens Kjeldsen-Kragh Copenhagen, Denmark

We came across Borgo di Vagli around 18 months ago when we were searching the Internet for timeshare properties in Italy. At that time, we didn’t know anything about Fractional Ownership, which seemed to be much more flexible than traditional timeshare.

The idea has matured, and finally, we decided to see the Hamlet for ourselves during a brief discovery visit late in March 2018. It was cold, there was snow on the top of the mountains, none of the other owners were staying in the Hamlet that week, and a lot of maintenance work was going on to prepare for the season. Thus, the conditions were not optimal for showing the best sides of the Hamlet. However, we were met with so much hospitality, and we felt so welcome.

We had dinner with Lee and Fulvio, and we tasted Dina’s lovely food. Lee took us on a wonderful two-hour hike where we passed the Shrine. We love Italy, the culture, the nature, the food, the climate, and the idea of returning to a place we know – a home every year. At the same time, we want to see a lot of other places around the World, and for this reason, 2-3 weeks a year is just a perfect solution for us.

We live in the North, in Denmark, and we have a rather short spring, summer and autumn, and we hope to extend the seasons in Borgo di Vagli so we can possibly have ‘two springs’ or a very long autumn.

There are 2 things we really like about Borgo di Vagli: the residences are comfortable and well-equipped but not extravagant, and the staff is so friendly and considerate. We like the idea of a community we own together, to have dinner in the restaurant and have a conversation with people from other parts of the World.

We are in our sixties and in the future can travel to Borgo di Vagli alone and sit at the long table in the restaurant and have a chat with someone, not feeling as alone as if sitting in a house or apartment we had bought outright.

The purchase of this fraction is a combination of an investment and a way of using money to give life quality instead of investing in stocks. Hence, it was very important for us that the Hamlet has no debt.

Finally, we liked the idea of not having some specific weeks every year as with timeshare. We look forward to seeing the Hamlet in all seasons, to seeing the colours shift during the seasons and to enjoy the hillsides with and without flowers.

Henrik Ferdinand and Rikke from Denmark

Fractional Owner of Tuscan Paradise

It has been almost ten years since Henrik and I bought a share in Borgo Di Vagli. We did so despite our common senses. The world was in the middle of a major credit crunch; I had my own, somewhat vulnerable, business and there were so many other places we’d also like to see in this world. So why on earth should we put so much money up for one single place?

Because nothing in the world is like it!

Borgo di Vagli has become our second home. A home where you’re always received as if you’ve been missed and sorely awaited. A home with room for all. We never cease to be amazed at how every single employee, par none, contribute to our feeling of “coming home”. It is invaluable and we are so grateful for this.

We’ve stayed at Borgo di Vagli during every season of the year. We’ve been here for three days and we’ve been here for three weeks. We’ve celebrated New Years and Easter here. My husband proposed to me under one of the Pergolas at Borgo di Vagli; he did so overlooking the olive grove and the hills. How could I say anything but “yes”? Very clever man, my husband!

There’s also the great joy of everyone’s company here; to be a part of a community. The great joy of being able to discuss culture, politics and values with people from all over the world. To have a drink or two… or three… and to sing in the warm summer night.

Our kids are grown up now and enjoy Vagli without us; they go there with their sweethearts, their friends and now with our grandchildren. Henrik and I we come here at least twice a year, – preferably more.

Borgo di Vagli is for us, the break you give yourself in life. The break which you don’t want to end. Or rather, the life which you don’t want to take a break from at all.

Henrik Ferdinand and Rikke Bedsen,Værløse, Denmark

On driving to the hamlet we were astounded by the clear starry night and the pure silence. We enjoyed a delightful meal in the Hamlet’s trattoria and the next morning opened the window of our residence to the most breathtaking views. We knew right then we wanted Borgo di Vagli as our family home in Tuscany”.
