“Casa Chilenne was great!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

The reviews of Casa Chilenne were so great that we had to try it! We were glad we did because if was very comfortable and located in the perfect spot for walking around Cortona. The many stairs up to Il Nido where we stayed were a challenge but since there is a stair lift for people and/or luggage it didn't really matter. Our room was great and the bath was huge! Air conditioning was very much appreciated being on on the top floor. The adjacent lounge with refrigerator and terrace were added pluses. Jeannette really made us feel at home and her breakfasts were wonderful. The walk up from the city wall where the bus stopped was quite an ordeal so we were so appreciative of a Cortona resident who gave us a lift. Once arrived we learned that there was a newly-instigated small van shuttle at the nearest piazza to take visitors back and forth to the train station. Ask about that when you book if you don't have a car. I agree with all the good things other reviewers have said about this lovely B&B.

Jeannette is a wonderful hostess, and it was a privilege to meet her. Our charming room was very clean, and our windows opened out onto narrow stone steps going up the hillside. Jeannette is a Master Chef, as evidenced by the delicious cakes at breakfast; eggs and waffles are also available. Location can't be beat - right on Via Nationale.

We chose this B&B due to the high number of positive reviews. All we read is true. Casa Chilenne is really cute place in the heart of Cortona (a few steps from Piazza Garibaldi, easly accesible by car). Our room, equipped with every comfort, was on the top floor and looked out onto a romantic terrace, overshadowing the many stairs to reach it. The owner Jeanette delights us with a homemade breakfast, that will be hard to forget, as well as hard to forget the extreme cordiality with which he hosted us. Cortona is gorgeous, but this B&B has certainly helped to make unforgettable a great vacation.

We visit Cortona every 2-3 years and stop over at Casa Chiliene to be looked after by Jeanette. This B&B is a 3 minute walk fro Piazza Garibaldi where the mini bus from Camuncia station drops you off. The mini bus departs the station on a quarter past the hour and takes 10 minutes to cover the 4 km up to this hilltop town.

This convenience means we do not have the hassle of car travel. Cortona offers many good restaurant. Unlike other Italian towns it has several shops offering quality goods ie leather, clothing, wine etc. you will not have to pass shop after shop selling the same range of souvenirs. Do visit the Etruscan museum which has a good range of exhibits from this pre roman civilisation. On the Main Street via Nationale you will also find a decent book shop with a range of English titles.

The town offers an attractive outlook over the valley to Montepulciano. You can take day trips to wineries in the area or have a guided walk around the town to grasp its ancient history.

Nevermind the stairs, you won't even feel them and you won't have to carry your luggage up the stairs.
It's a very homie villa, the rooms are quite spacious and the design goes along with the whole are that you are.
In the morning you will enjoy one of the greatest breakfasts you will ever have in Tuscany and your host it's the kindest I've seen in a looong time.
We had an extraordinary time in Cortona!

We were thoroughly spoiled by Jeanette and Luciano with the assistance of Daisy and Carlotta. The location is great, the rooms are clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated and the food is outstanding. Jeanette's advice and assistance made this the best vacation experience. Cortona is the perfect place to stay while exploring sites in and around the area. We are plotting a return trip!
