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 pole...Immersed in a timeless silence Raggiolo dominates its evergreen valley.

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 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. More

About the neighbourhood
The Casentino is a large valley in the province of Arezzo situated in the upper part of the Arno valley, which is born in Monte Falterona. It has a wide and deep oval shape, surrounded by the same Monte Falterona, the highest peak of Monte Falco (1,685m), the Serra and Catenaia Alps while the ridge of Pratomagno rises from the hollow of the Consumma Pass.
Getting around
The landscape is characterised by vast mountain forests which have preserved the valley’s natural state, rich in history and spirituality, where it is possible to trace St. Francis’s steps: The Sanctuary of Verna with the small church of “Santa Maria degli Angeli” and the church of the stigmata; the Monastery and Hermitage of Camaldoli founded by St. Romaldo, within the splendid forest of the same name. The main towns are Bibbiena and Poppi, which is part of the club called “Italy’s most beautiful hamlets” but the whole area is dotted with small villages and castles once belonging to the Guidi counts.
