My wife and I stayed at the Villa Cilnia midweek for one night and found it to be a hidden gem - blending traditional values and modern amenities - nestled in a beautiful and peaceful location with ample grounds in the countryside near Arezzo.
The old buildings of the Villa have been modernised to a high standard, keeping many of the original features - giving the feeling of continuity with the past. The bedroom was clean, warm and comfortable with a modern bathroom and a rarity - an excellent shower!
During our stay we ate in the Restaurant, which was a particular delight - opting for the 'tasting' menu of five courses (with ample portions) made with the best authentic local Tuscan ingredients, cooked by a young and talented Chef who clearly enjoyed his work. The Villa produces its own wine and olive oil which were featured during the meal. The breakfast was also excellent - served in the restaurant and included the Chef's fabulous fresh home-made cakes!
We didn't have time to use the purpose-built, state of the art Spa but were given a personal tour of the facilities and here too - as in the Relais and Restaurant - the staff were young, helpful, friendly and very knowledgeable and took great pride in their work.
In our opinion, Villa Cilnia presents the best of what Italy has to offer for the discerning traveller and we very much look forward to a longer stay on our next visit.
