“Bed & Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2013

We booked in through the Internet, Jeanette (owner) was very helpful. It was a beautiful building we stayed in the front part that was built in the 18th century the back of the building was built in the 14th century, what a lovely feel the building had, felt right at home. Jeanette and Luciano are two of the nicest people and what a cook Jeannette is, superb breakfasts were served and we even took away her homemade muffins and some fruit with us for our lunch on our walkabouts. We would definitely stay with them again. Our room was great.

Jeanette runs a top shelf establishment. I can not talk about the other rooms but our large 3rd floor room and bath was expertly finished with fine cabintry and wooden trim. Nothing cheap here as the decor throughout the floor and including the common lounge and outdoor patio was exceptional.
Additionally, Jeannette offers the best breakfast of any of the other 6 B&Bs we stayed the 3 weeks my wife and I were in Italy. Want eggs and bacon? Just ask. Want a large waffle? Coming right up. Fine paistries? Go grab one. She is a great cook and likes to display her skills for the guests.
Cortona is a fine destination with easy car access to Assisi, Siena, and the surrounding areas. The town itself is loaded with great eating places and quaint as they come. Casa Chilenne is right in the middle of all that. Get ready as you open the front door in the morning to be right in the thick of the town.
Cortona is a great place and the quality comfort that Jeannette's B&B offers is a superb way to experience it.
And incidentially, there is a great barbershop right down the street that for 14 Euros will give you a hand razor haircit. I hadn't gotten one of those in 40 years!

Room Tip: The third floor room has a clothes washer in it. For 3 Euros you can do a load of laundry and hang t...

I booked our (too short) stay based on Trip Advisor reviews and the location of the B&B. Our only disappointment is that we did not stay longer. Jeanette was a superb host and made the best breakfast (home made waffles with whipped cream and fresh strawberries) we had on our 12 day trip. Our triple room was excellent. A good size, exceptionally clean, great beds, excellent ensuite with a great shower and very nicely decorated. There were toiletries/extras you usually only get at a good hotel. The location is wonderful - hop out the front door and you are on the great shopping street leading to the main city square. It is a wonderful place, hosted with care and kindness by Jeanette and her husband. All in all, just superb.

We only stayed here at Casa Chilenne for 2 nights and all the good reviews weren't wrong. When we arrived, Jeannete was a great hostess and offered us beverages and was very helpful and recommended a few things to do in Cortona and gave us a map.
There are 5 different rooms and we stayed on the 2nd floor of the rooms which was quite spacious. the room had a safe, air conditioner, TV, full bathtub which we hand't seen so far in either Rome or Florence and a mini fridge. So far this is the best B&B yet on our trip. On the top floor there was a balcony that you could use and had a sitting area with a small kitchen and couches and a tv and books to read.
The breakfast was amazing! There was a selection of yogurt, breads and croissants, and some kind of homemade dessert and then you could get other stuff upon requests.
The 1st morning we had homemade waffles with fresh strawberries and then the 2nd morning I had pancakes and my boyfriend had bacon and eggs, all this served with cappuccinos and orange juice.
I can't say enough good things about this B&B and the hospitality and Cortona itself. Definitely a different experience than the hustle and bustle of the big cities. My boyfriend was also impressed that they had ESPN and he was ale to watch abit of the NHL playoffs, even if it was at 1 am. If I ever return to Cortona, I will definitely stay here again.

Jeanette is the most amazing hostess in Cortona ! We arrived in the middle of the day and she treated us to her fresh apple cake and a cappuccino ! And breakfast included fresh eggs which you don't usually find at a b&b. Each time we come to this area of Italy we stay at Casa Chilenne !

My husband and I travel and lot, and Casa Chilenne is WAY up on our list of favorite hotel stays ever. The rooms are large and comfortable and spotlessly clean and prettily decorated; hot water is plentiful and almost instant in the shower; bathrooms are well equipped with big towels, lots of shampoo and lotion; the stairs are steep but are equipped with a chair lift (which was great for us, as we traveled with my sister who has trouble negotiating stairs). There is a well-stocked mini-fridge in each room and a lounge upstairs with loads of books, games, another fridge, microwave, etc. And that's not even the good stuff! The best part of this hotel is Jeanette. She is a lovely, warm and inviting person who could easily be a professional pastry chef. She puts out an amazing breakfast buffet, provides cooked eggs, bacon and/or waffles on request, and makes her own pastry (do NOT miss the pear and chocolate tart) at least once a day. Her husband helps with luggage, too! And the dogs... Ah, they're adorable and I seriously considered smuggling Daisy into my luggage. :-) The location could not be more convenient, either. Cortona is gorgeous (isn't everything in that part of Italy?). Stay at Casa Chilenne. You'll be glad you did.

A very late review, we stayed for our wedding anniversary in August and were lucky enough to enjoy the top floor and balcony area. Jeanette was incredibly helpful organizing taxis and recommending places to eat. This B&B is beautifully restored, with a chair lift if the steep steps inside are a little too much for you to manage. There is wonderful home baking and the very special poodle welcome all of which help make this a memorable stay. Not forgetting the gelato shop on your doorstep. I would highly recommend staying here.
