National Geographic Traveller and Borgo di Vagli Fractional Club have teamed up to offer you and a guest the chance to win a truly memorable holiday in Tuscany, Italy.
The Etruscans, Romans and artists of the Renaissance era have all left their mark on Tuscany, making it possibly the greatest source of art in the world, from extraordinary paintings and sculpture to frescoes and architectural masterpieces. Whilst many visitors come to Tuscany in search of Art, others come to explore the pristine countryside, whereas gourmets and wine buffs descend on Tuscany to enjoy the humble yet wonderful cuisine and locally produced world-renowned wines.
And there is no better location than Borgo di Vagli from where to explore the many cities, sites, hilltop towns and vineyards in Tuscany and Umbria.
Borgo di Vagli is an architectural gem itself: it is a fully restored medieval Hamlet, secluded and serene and yet located only 20 minutes from Cortona and its bustling piazzas, trattorias, cafes, bars, leather goods shops, numerous art galleries, churches and museums.
Suggested day trips from Borgo di Vagli include: Florence, Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza, Assisi, Montalcino, Perugia, Arezzo, Lucignano and many more.
The Hamlet was restored by architect Fulvio Di Rosa and houses 10 one and two bedroom residences, sold as a Fractional Club.
On-site facilities include reception, concierge, trattoria (serving mouth-watering Tuscan dishes, paired with the famous local wines), 60ft heated swimming pool, mini-market, bocce course, laundry facilities and numerous hikes and tracks through the untouched surrounding hills. borgodivagli.com
The lucky winner and guest will receive 7 nights accommodation for 2 adults in a fully restored and beautifully furnished one-bedroom residence, return flights from the UK for two adults, €200 towards car rental, a welcome Tuscan 4 course dinner and wine served in the Hamlet’s trattoria and a wine-tasting excursion to the famous Avignonesi vineyard near Montepulciano.
