this review is long overdue and I have to make sure that this place gets the proper credit it deserves! a 5-star indeed...casa chilenne was by far the best accomodation we had during our 2-week long trip in europe for half the price..owner, Jeannette, took good care of us..well-fed with an awesome breakfast spread or if we are off early to catch a train we find a bag of goodies ready to go by our door..she also made arrangement for us for a regular cabbie to pick us up on our first day and arrange all other days for pick-up and drop off to the train station on our side trips outside of cortona...kudos too to mr. enzo! our train was late once and another time we missed our stop - did not hear any complaints...that is greatly appreciated when your lost in a foreign land :) ...about the house, what else can i say? everything was superb! there is an electric rail they use to send your luggage up the steep stairs (so you don't have to worry about carrying that)...we were given the Le gazze room and it was a big room..It was well equipped with the things you would expect in a room - a cabinet, in room safe, tv with cable channels and wi-fi access..that bathrooms are super clean and well-kep with a nice shower and new heating system...made to order breakfast and coffee was a treat..she was also nice enough to give us great tips on restaurants and a walking tour of the town...it was just simply an awesome experience...and it was a great decision for me to make this my home base while touring other italian towns..i love the town itself too..it is a quiet and friendly town..coming from rome, i thought everything was cheap when i came here especially the food and beverages (coffee) was half the price and with much better quality..if i have a chance to tour again, i will definitely stay here...
