Rignano sull'Arno

The territory of the municipality of Rignano sull'Arno is situated in a zone that is prevalently hilly, south- east of Florence, in the Upper Valdarno, in the curve created by the river Arno on the left bank of which the administrative centre is located.

Probably a roman settlement (hence of toponym), information regarding Rignano were found starting in the year 1000, as a town that arose in the vicinity of the parish church of San Leolino, and as the ruined castle in the 12th century, in its present location in the village of Casa Rignano on the hill that dominate the administrative centre.

The development of the present settlement probably derives from the building of the bridge over the river Arno, a bridge that has marked the life of the town and that floods have often destroyed. It became a commune in 1773 by decision of Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo, who formed the new entity of Rignano by detaching thirteen "masses" from Pontassieve.

Rignano sull'Arno is birthplace of Lapo da Castiglionchio, Vespasiano da Bisticci and of the painter Ardengo Soffici.

"idealer Ort zum Ausspannen in der Nähe von Florenz"

Es handelt sich um eine sehr liebevoll eingerichtete Ferienwohnung in einem frei stehenden Gebäude, dessen behutsame Sanierung gerade fertiggestellt wurde. Die Möbel und Einrichtungsgegenstände sind mit Bedacht ausgewählt und passen gut zum Alter und Charakter des Gebäudes. Zur Nutzung stehen auf dem Grundstück zur Verfügung ein großer Pool bei herrlichem Blick in die toskanische Landschaft, Tischtennisplatte, Freisitz und Grillhaus. Der im Erdgeschoss wohnende sehr zuvorkommende Vermieter Mauro gibt gern Ratschläge und Tipps zur Erkundung der Gegend. Wir hatten auch darüber hinaus nette und herzliche Gespräche mit ihm. Die Lage in der Nähe der Kleinstadt Rignano sul Arno (6 Autominuten) ist nicht nur zum Einkaufen ideal (Supermarkt und kleine Läden, Bäcker), von der Bahnstation aus kann man auch günstig mit dem Zug Florenz oder Arezzo erreichen (in jede Richtung stündlich) - haben wir 2x gemacht. Letztlich möchte ich noch die Pizzeria/Ristorante "100 Palme" nennen, erreichbar in ca. 5 Autominuten Ri. Florenz, in der man wunderbar essen kann. Da es uns so gut gefallen hat, empfehlen wir die Unterkunft gern weiter und würden auch selbst gern noch einmal von dort aus die Toscana genießen. Vielen Dank an Mauro, den Vermieter.
