Description from owner

Description


Immersed in a timeless silence Raggiolo dominates its evergreen valley. It is a village whose noble and proud history has deep and ancient roots. Its people battles against misfortunes date back to the mists of time.

Its history had been made by Longobards, and feudal lords too. An old legend tells about a group of settlers from Corsica who arrived at Raggiolo many centuries ago as well.

The people from Raggiolo are stubborn, untameable and smart, and strengthened by hard work too. A mountain population whose lives follow the rhythm of

nature, dry chestnuts, closeness to woods and animals, as well as transhumance to the Maremma area. They were skilled farmers, brave in using knives, strong and clever too. They were good in surviving long cold poor winters with the only support polenta, boiled chestnuts and cheese could give them.

All is left today is the village, moulded according to ancient mysteries. It was thought as a true and coherent evidence

All is left today is the village, moulded according to ancient mysteries. It was thought as a true and coherent evidence of the ancient relation with the surrounding environment. Raggiolo still states its people wisdom and simple life style. Thus we can still admire a village and enjoy its people's identity both worth to be preserved, a true project for the future.

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

The Casentino Valley is not the most famous area in Tuscany; foreign and local tourism have passed it by, the wider public stopping in the better known Chianti, along the Mediterranean coast or near Lucca where many foreigners now own a property.

Stretching between Florence and Arezzo, this beautifully secluded, wide, oval-shaped valley is surrounded by gentle hills which gradually ascend to mountains, on one side climbing to reach the impressive Apennines and on the opposite side to the Pratomagno, whose ridge separates Casentino from the Chianti region on the other side. This ring of mountains which has prevented the spread of motorways and major railways, preserving the valley’s natural state.
