From the owner

Located in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, Borgo di Vagli is 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.
