Borgo di Vagli - 1 Bedroom Unit - Tuscany, Italy

  
 

Description

Borgo di Vagli is located in the heart of the Tuscan countryside. A quaint, meticulously restored 14th century Hamlet surrounded by a protected area of olive groves, fruit trees and ancient oaks. From the terraces, you can enjoy panoramic views of the breathtaking Tuscan hills, including a spectacular view of the 10th century Pierle castle.

Borgo di Vagli is the result of a ten-year restoration project conceived and executed by renowned restoration engineer Fulvio Di Rosa. Fulvio's efforts have allowed Borgo di Vagli to maintain much of its original feel, atmosphere, and charm, without compromising modern day comforts. Borgo di Vagli is not for everyone. It is for those who enjoy the charm of ducking under 600 years old low doorways, catching scenic views through small windows cut through thick stone walls, and dining in a traditional candlelit Trattoria.

Among the ancient architecture you will find genuine rural furnishings and Tuscan antiques, terra cotta floors, wooden beam ceilings, fully equipped kitchens and cozy bathrooms, handcrafted cutlery, exposed wooden-beam ceilings, satellite television, High-speed Internet connections and luxurious Busatti linens.

The intimate one and two-bedroom residences have been brought back to life in order to spirit visitors back to a more austere era and to embrace them with the true experience of living in a rural Tuscan Hamlet. Original 14th century low doorways and small windows cut through thick stone walls lend an authentic feel.

Borgo di Vagli offers the perfect vantage point from which to explore all of Tuscany and the best places of interest in Umbria. The resort is just 20 minutes from the popular unspoiled, medieval town of Cortona and within easy driving distance of Siena, San Gimignano and Florence.

You can easily explore the walled town and vineyards of Montepulciano and Montalcino, enjoy the famed "percorino" cheeses of Pienza and chocolates from Perugia, discover the Etruscan treasures and arts in Chiusi and other less well know but must-visit places such as - Arezzo, Assisi, Montone, Lucignano, Spoleto, Spello and Gubbio.

Just 20-minutes from Borgo di Vagli is Lake Trasimeno, made famous for a battle between Hannibal and the Romans in 217 BC.
