Casa Chilenne is a family owned and run Bed and Breakfast located in a historic, newly restored 4 story building . It is situated on the vital main road of Cortona at n°65 Via Nazionale, the true historic heart of the city. Restaurants, shops, tourist information office, post office, banks, bars and caffés can all be found literally a few steps away. The building is clearly visible in a map drawn by Pietro Berrettini (Pietro da Cortona) in 1674 for the first printed city guide book , however, it most certainly existed prior to that date.
Its structure was remodeled and restored many times over the centuries but the restorations works of the 1800’s left the most notable touches of character. During our restoration we tried to conserve the spirit of that era while providing all the comforts of modern life.
We have 5 rooms available for guests, each one with a private bath. They have direct dial telephone, air conditioning and heating, satellite tv with SKY cable service, LAN cable connection to ADSL internet service, mini-bar, safe and hairdryers. Three of our rooms have a combination bath tub/ shower, while the other two have oversize showers. One of the rooms has a washing machine available for use by its occupants.
All floors have been rendered more easily accessible to those with mobility issues as we have fit the staircases with 4 chair lifts.
To insure a good night’s rest to our guests we have refit the windows with special double paned glass designed to reduce noise and maintain ideal temperatures in summer or winter. On the top floor , we have a small lounge with fireplace, tv and a cooking corner with 2 burners, a microwave, espresso coffee machine, electric kettle and fridge available to clients.
