This is a view of the ruined Castello di Pierle from the Tuscan village of Borgo di Vagli near Cortona in Tuscany. Borgo di Vagli is a beautifully restored vacation village and, in fact, it’s possible to buy a share in a vacation home at Borgo di Vagli in the form of fractional ownership in Tuscany.
The main distinction between timeshare and fractional ownership is that with a timeshare you buy the right to use a property, but with fractional ownership, you are buying real estate. Fractional ownership divides a property into more affordable segments for individuals and also matches an individual’s ownership time to their actual usage time. A fractional share gives the owners certain privileges, such as a number of days or weeks when they can use the property. In this way, for a fraction of the cost of buying a house in Tuscany outright, the fractional owners enjoy all the pleasures of staying in their own place in Tuscany while retaining the option to sell in the future.
Borgo di Vagli is one of the most authentic fractional ownership villages in Italy. Enormous effort went into preserving the structure and ambiance of the village. I’s located high on a forested hillside with beautiful views in every direction, while still being within an easy drive of Cortona.
