KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

Full of character, the beautifully restored 14th-century village of Borgo di Vagli boasts panoramic views and is idyllically set amongst olive groves, ancient woodlands, fruit trees and vineyards. The village had been left in ruins before a ten-year project was undertaken to completely and authentically restore it. Today, the village maintains, as faithfully as possible, its medieval character and atmosphere with the sympathetic incorporation of modern day comforts.

All of the cottages have been restored with great attention to detail, with wooden beams, stone ceilings and handmade Cotto tiles all complimented by the use of one of the five original Calce plaster colours and rural Tuscan antique furnishings. The houses are brimming full of character and where every cottage is completed to the same high standard, due to the age of the buildings, no two properties are identical.

The Borgo is part of a large geographically protected area and the countryside views take in the 10th century Pierle Castle. The parkland surrounding the property has olive groves, fruit trees, and grassy terraces that offer the privacy to read, relax and dine alfresco. Entirely private and offering a level of authentic country luxury rarely seen in rural Tuscany, the village is comprised of 21 unique properties and includes two swimming pools, a restaurant, and a small shop. The restaurant is located at the base of the 14th-century guard tower, it specialises in traditional Tuscan cuisine using locally sourced products and has a very well-stocked wine cellar.

A car is a necessity and here you are in an ideal position to get out and about to explore both Tuscany and Umbria. Within an easy 20 minute drive is the picturesque town of Cortona and Lake Trasimeno, offering boat trips and various water sports is within an easy drive. Florence, Perugia, Assisi, Siena, Arezzo and Montepulciano are all within easy reach for some great sightseeing opportunities and day trips.

NOTES

The cottages are booked based on requirements for one, two or three bedrooms with the actual accommodation for your stay being allocated about two weeks prior to arrival to take into account any guest's specific requirements, i.e., not having too many steps, suitability for children, etc. On this basis we have provided as many photographs as possible in the 'Gallery' that can be accessed on the Estate Overview page, to allow you to see that all apartments are finished to an equally high standard and each is unique in character and layout.
