About Stefania Civitelli

Even now, after 4 years, and after literally 100' of times of driving up and down the road, I am often surprised the sudden emotion it stirs in me…

The striking beauty of the restored buildings, just like my grandparents homestead in Monte San Savino, the striking colours and scent of the flowers in bloom and the breathtaking views brought back memories that were slowly fading away, after three years working in London. But, on the road back to Vagli, I now realise my roots are firmly in Tuscany and don’t want to forget that…

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was seduced by the location, beauty and ambiance of the place and the first class - attention to detail - of the design and service. Its a bit of a hidden gem and a trek up the hill road too but it is well worth it. Its a fractional ownership "resort" and is absolutely fantastic. Special recommendation to try the on site "restaurant" for home style local cooking and wine. A dip in the cool design pool is also excellent with stunning views and absolute tranquility.

If you looking for a quite restful holiday, away from all the huff and puff of everyday life....then this is the ideal location. Set deep in the Tuscan countryside, There is a lovely pool at the crest of the location, which has a magnificent view of the valley and perfect when its get very hot as there is always a lovely breeze. Other amenities include a small shop for necessaries and a super restaurant serving original Italian recipes. Noel Ireland
