We recently spent three wonderful nights with Jeanette, Luciano, Carlotta and Daisy at Casa Chilenne. After our first day, an old song kept coming to mind: "Little Things Mean A Lot", for this seems to be Jeanette's philosophy for her wonderful B&B. Opening the front door, you are immediately confronted with stairs up to the various levels. But not to worry, as there is a nice chair lift to take you and your luggage to your room, with Luciano's help! Having knee issues, this lift was my wife's salvation during our stay. The attention to detail was quickly evident in our nicely-sized double room: comfortable-sized bed, large armoire with ample hangers, well-stocked mini-fridge, cute little notebook w/pen, liquid hand soap and lotion in bath, combination bathtub/shower, tv and, to my wife's delight, lace doilies on the tables and nightstands! Our room was the Le Rondini and, though in the front above the main street, was quiet due to the quality of the windows. There is also a lovely terrace off of the top level for enjoying some quiet time. But, for us, it was Jeanette's caring and warm attitude that made our stay special. Waffles, pancakes, eggs and bacon for breakfast in Italy? What a treat! Also, the restaurant recommendations were a perfect fit for our taste and budget. Wherever we went in Cortona, the mention of Jeanette and Casa Chilenne evoked a positive response. If we are fortunate enough to return to Cortona one day, our choice for accommodations will most assuredly be Casa Chilenne!
