Borgo di Vagli, the first fully-restored 14th century Hamlet available for fractional home-ownership and situated in the heart of Tuscany, has been named Best International Development (Multiple Units) by the prestigious International Property Awards 2007. DCP has been the consultant to Borgo di Vagli since the club's inception in 2006, providing the developer with specialized expertise in design, marketing and sales.

Now in its 13th year, the International Property Awards in association with CNBC attracted entries from a record 56 different countries. Up to five nominees were selected from the highest scoring winners at the country level across 20 different categories that encompass architecture, property development, interior design, estate agents, and more. The judging panel consists of distinguished professionals in the fields of property, design and construction, property writers and fellow sponsors.

“We're truly honored to have this historic property recognized by a highly respected group of industry experts,” says Steve Dering, founder of DCP International. “And the timing is auspicious given our current expansion into other European markets.”

Situated in the heart of Tuscany, 30 minutes from Cortona, Borgo di Vagli is a 14th century medieval hamlet set on 32 acres of olive groves and gardens. Italian civil engineer and restoration architect Fulvio Di Rosa spent a decade restoring the ten previously dilapidated, stone cottages. The rustic one and two-bedroom residences are sold fractionally. Ownership for a one-bedroom residence starts at 60,000 and two-bedroom residences start at 92,500.
