“Cozy in Cortona!”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

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!

The room we had was large and nice as was the bathroom. Jeanette and her husband were so very kind and helpful. She made us pancakes one morning and waffles the next! Since we had been away from home for 6 months, these were wonderful treats. She also had other homemade goodies there for all to eat. There is a stair lift to get your luggage or yourself up the steep stairs if needed. The hosts make this place very special. The location is great for the main sites in town. And parking was not too far away as this B & B is on a walking street.

Our stay at Casa Chilenne B&B was a great experience! It was our first time in Cortona, and we enjoyed every minute. They were very hospitable - even with ALL of our luggage!!!! The "Acorn Stair Lift" was a HUGE help for transporting luggage up and down the stairs. Jeanette's breakfast was delicious (pancakes one day, waffles the next!) along with the already laid out meats, cheeses etc. We would not hesitate to come back to this B&B. The rooms were spacious and comfortable! Great for any couples, families or solo travellers!

Room Tip: We stayed in the "Il Nido" room. Top floor - where the shared terrace is! It was a lovely...

We have just returned from an amazing holiday in Italy. Our stay in Cortona would be one of the highlights of our trip. Jeanette was the perfect hostess, her home made waffles at breakfast time were the best we'd ever tasted. We felt very comfortable at Casa Chilenne. Our room was at the front of the building, in the afternoon when we opened our windows and shutters the sun shone in and we could hear the chatter and laughter from the street below, a wonderful memory. The service provided at Casa Chilenne was excellent.

We have just returned from a wonderful trip to Italy. This place was the highlight of places that we stayed in. Everything was perfect. We will never forget those breakfasts. We follow a cruelty free diet (vegan). This was not a problem for Jeanette. Egg free pancakes... Chocolate muffins... Tofu scramble.. Etc. so unexpected and delicious
We had the whole top floor to ourselves with a nice terrace. There are steep steps to all the rooms but the chairlifts were useful for the luggage or for anyone that needs a bit of help.
Thank you Jeanette for everything.

Room Tip: Top floor.

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.
