I first read about Borgo di Vagli's fractional ownership concept in a Sunday Times supplement. I cut it out and put it in my handbag knowing that I would be spending time in Rome in a few weeks to meet up with some of my relatives who live in South Africa.

Mount Athos, Greece… A dream trip for one's spirit and soul and not for the faint hearted!
Many years ago, whilst vacationing with my family on Greece's Chalkidiki peninsula, I was so close to living out one of my many dreams... This dream was to take a few days to tour Mount Athos with my son Edo, who was six or seven at that time.
A lady from Milos, who had helped organize part of our "adventurous" trips on many of Greece's beautiful Islands, had promised that she would put together an itinerary of interesting ways for Edo and I to spend some days there, but after days of waiting nothing materialised.
