We were craving a natural setting after many nights spent in the hill towns of Tuscany and did we get it! With no car I was at first concerned La Chiusa dei Monaci might be hard to get to but no problem. Cinzia our host was happy to meet us at the Arezzo train station and we were "home" in minutes. This is a stylish home which has been in Cinzia's family for generations. Our well appointed( even a kettle and tea) bedroom looked out on green trees and the gentle sound of water tumbling over a weir. Sunshine and birds singing made it a very peaceful scene and the pool would be good in summer. Cinzia is very knowledgeable about the history and sights of Arezzo so get ready for all you will need to know to make the best of this beautiful town. Our breakfast happened to coincide with Mothers Day and what a feast we were served in the flag stoned kitchen on the circular glass table supported by an original grinding stone from the adjoining flour mill. We were even treated to fresh sheeps milk ricotta made by the local shepherd served with Cunzia's homemade fig jam. We were Cinzia's first Australian guests but surely with this energy warmth and hospitality we won't be her last! She bakes daily for her guests a sure sign that this is a host keen to engage and welcome you as family. And you will meet and hear about her family too! Oh and did I mention Cinzia's English is excellent and
her French fluent! Brava Cinzia!
