This B&B has it all - great location 200 yards from the central piazza, beautifully-appointed rooms with en suites, a sublime roof terrace, and the perfect hosts in the persons of Jeanette and Luciano.
We planned a three night tour around our favourite Tuscan towns before meeting up with the crowd for a week in a villa. Cortona had always been a favourite of ours, so we looked for a suitable B&B.
Casa Chilenne was top-rated, so that's where we started, and everything from then on confirmed they were the right choice.
We knew our luck was in when we got the last parking spot in Piazza Garibaldi a mere 50 yards from Casa Chllenne. Luciano helped us with the luggage and we then appreciated why they've installed stair-lifts on the two stage of the steep staircase up from the street - it wafts the luggage upwards as easily as it does the infirm or tired guest.
Rooms were beyond our expectations - spacious, cool and beautifully-appointed, and the roof terrace was a delightful surprise - just far enough the Via Nationale to muffle the street noise, and high enough to give great views over Cortona and catch some breezes.
Jeannette enquired about our dinner preferences, and then not only got us a table in a magnificent restaurant, but also had a personal word with the chef to ensure we got want we wanted.
This kind of meticulous attention to detail is what sets Casa Chilenne apart, and was evident again in the morning when we were plied with specially-baked treats for breakfast(a distinct contrast with the token voucher we'd been offered in Arezzo the day before).
In summary, you're probably going to Cortona because you've been there before, and you want a comfortable, well-run B&B close to the centre - look no further than Casa Chilenne.
They're all good
