About the Property

Farmhouse, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

Our property is located in the award winning fully restored Hamlet 'Borgo di Vagli'. Borgo di Vagli is for those who dream of living in a traditional Tuscan Hamlet consisting of intimate one and two-bedroom homes; homes that have been awoken to spirit owners back to a more austere era., in an environment where loved ones can reconnect

The ten-year restoration project was conceived and executed by the renowned architect Fulvio Di Rosa. Fulvio is often cited by author Frances Mayes, as being amongst the best in his field. His meticulous restoration efforts have allowed Borgo di Vagli to maintain much of its original feel, atmosphere and charm, without compromising modern-day comforts such as fully equipped kitchens, cosy bathrooms. Fulvio also took responsibility for the interiors and his attention to detail is sublime. The property is furnished with rural Tuscan antiques, handcrafted crockery and cutlery, Busatti linens, satellite television and WiFi.

Amenities include: reception, concierge, large outdoor heated swimming pool, a Trattoria, and endless hiking/walking paths among one of Tuscany’s most splendid, peaceful and protected landscapes.

Please Note that this property is only available through us for two weeks each year. For 2014, the weeks are May 24-31 and October 4-11.

Year Purchased: 2013

Why Cortona, Arezzo, Italy:
We first read about Borgo di Vagli in an article in the International Herald Tribune in 2008. It sounded like such an interesting place and concept. We requested information right away, but couldn’t imagine being able to make use of a 1/10th fractional ownership, given that we can’t take a lot of vacation (we manage a family business, care for elderly parents, etc.) Still, I could never quite get the place out of my head, and checked the Hamlet’s website occasionally to dream. When we learned that Borgo di Vagli had decided to also offer 1/15th and 1/20th ownerships, we began thinking more seriously about ownership. Even if we still can’t get away for two full weeks every year, surely we have family members and friends who would want to take advantage of our unused weeks. We finally visited the property in October 2013, four months after purchasing. We were absolutely delighted, no regrets. From the moment we arrived, we felt at home. The second night we were there, the tiny village down the road was celebrating its annual Chestnut Festival, and we went with a group from the Hamlet. It was a fun and cozy evening spent enjoying local food and wine and music amongst the local people, something it’s doubtful we would have experienced even if we had rented a house for a holiday. Vagli’s setting suits us to a “t”: the restored 13th-Century buildings are authentic and upscale, but not flashy or pretentious. The hamlet isn’t “touristy”; it’s removed from the crowds without being remote. From your base at the Hamlet, you can drive to Montepulciano and Pienza to sample wine; to Assisi to visit the birthplace of St. Francis; discover nearby Cortona; and take the train to Florence for a day. Reception will assist you with getting tickets to the Uffizi Gallery so you don’t have to waste any time in line.
