Lost in time. Borgo di Vagli — a majestic sanctuary that captures the essence of serenity and peace. This 14th century medieval Hamlet has been meticulously restored to exist in perfect harmony with its natural, rural setting.
This is genuine Tuscany, that romantic lifestyle sought by many, and found by few.
You might be the next one.
Upon his first tour of Borgo di Vagli, architect Fuivio Di Rosa became consumed with the “bug to make it live again,” and dedicated the next ten years to seeing his vision through to completion. The Hamlet maintains as faithfully as possible its medieval feel, atmosphere and look, without compromising modern-day comforts and needs.
The intimate one-and two-bedroom residences have been brought back to life to inspire the charm of a simpler time and embrace owners with the true experience of living in a rural Tuscan hamlet.
Original 14th century doorways and windows cut through thick stone walls to lend an authentic feel. Among the ancient architecture, you will find genuine rural furnishings, Tuscan antiques, terra cotta floors, exposed wooden beam ceilings, fully equipped kitchens with handcrafted cutlery, cozy bathrooms, and luxurious Busatti linens alongside modern conveniences like satellite television, bluetooth speakers, DVD players and high speed WiFi internet connections.
The emotions felt upon arrival to Borgo di Vagli are familiar and undeniable. They are of compassion and warmth, made evident by the heartfelt greeting from the Hamlet’s management and staff.
Without a spoken word, their demeanor speaks clearly: Welcome Home. Owners marvel at sunrises burning off a morning fog to reveal the lush valley, dream of the tranquil peace of reading a book under an olive tree, enjoy the comfort of a home cooked meal, whiling away hours lounging around the hillside pool surrounded by the scent of lavender, with wildlife at play and completed by the silence of nature.
OUR AMENITIES AND SERVICE ARE NOT LIMITED TO, BUT INCLUDE:
From the moment the old tavern door opens, a roar of laughter echoes out, spilling across the valley. As you step into the candlelit Trattoria, your senses are captivated.
Here, owners dine together as family on meals cooked using only firewood. The Trattoria has become the epicenter, the gathering place where each day ends the way it began, enjoying good food with great company of like minded souls.
With each unforgettable sunrise comes a new day, as does another Tuscan adventure-whether you seek it in the comfort and privacy of your residence, or along the lush countryside. Owners can spend hours relaxing around the pool, or hiking in the hills that surround the Hamlet. Mountain-biking, golf, and winery tours are just some of the activities to be discovered. Whereas, history, culture, and architecture are never far away.
Mercatale (di Cortona) is a quaint Tuscan market village just 10 minutes from the Hamlet by car or—for the more adventurous—a 40 minute walk along Dina’s path. There, you will find a church, cafes, bars, a post office, a tobacconist selling post cards and souvenirs, two supermarkets, two butchers selling high quality local meats, including the world famous Chianina beef and salamis, three banks and a well-known trattoria.
