Andrew and Faith Chakalis - Ohio, USA
Andrew and I were first introduced to Borgo di Vagli by our close friends Curt and Holly Witchey, who knew our passion for Tuscany and shared Vagli's web site with us.

The tips are selected as they either show respect for the environment, nature, and architectural beauty or are deeply indigenous to their individual origin. This month we have to thank our marvelous Resort Director Stefania Civitelli for sharing her experiences about her trip to Cuba with us.
"My trip to Cuba was a very much a last minute decision and, as such, I did not want to put too much expectation on this journey. I decided that I was going to relax at the beach and perhaps take a few trips to discover some of the natural beauty spots that the island is renowned for… As soon as I landed in L'Avana I met friendly people, and I immediately realised that this trip was going to take a completely different turn…
