We spent 11 nights at Casale del Cotone and it was a nice relaxing holiday. Nice refreshing pool and poolbar to have an aperitivo. Th setting is enchanting and the nature around the casale is one of the most beatiful of Tuscany. We will come back next year. Thanks Alessandro.

Alessandro, the owner, prepares dinner, when is is able. We were here for 4 nights and he prepared dinner twice. He is a fabulous cook and is passionate about Italian cuisine. He is very personable and spends time sitting with you, discussing his life in San Gimignano. I highly recommend the dinner, which is great value and of superb quality.... More

A beauiful place, a fantastic host and sublime food. The house is very tastefully restored, its elegant and the service is perfect. The hotel is very well located, its easy to visit San Gimignano or just enjoy the beautiful Tuscan countryside.

We would not hesitate in recommending II Casale del Cotone, it is situated in the ideal place to visit San Gimiano and has breathtaking scenery all around. It is spotlessly clean , Alessandro and his staff could not have been more attentive. The meals we had at the hotel cooked by Alessandro were exceptional. The pool area well kept and... More

We stayed here as part of a group and I can say that we had the most amazing time. The hotel is beautifully restored in the most beautiful of settings. Alessandro has worked exeptionally hard to create a wonderful place to stay. The views of the countryside are amazing and its a stones throw from San Gimignano which is also... More

It is the best hotel that I have ever visited. The room was very clean and well decorated. The breakfast service is elegant and delicious. If you book the room with the mountain view from the window, you will certainly be impressed by the breathe-taking scene. They also provide WIFI which is fast. Respect to the price, the quality that... More

We have been visiting this small B and B for some years. We return because of the peace and tranquility and the general charm of the place. The owner now serves meals a few evenings a week and they are a real treat and always very plentiful. If you want charm in a rural setting on the outskirts of a... More

We keep coming back to Il Casale del Cotone and we will definitely come again! Heavenly is the only word that I have to describe the experience to stay in the middle of the beautiful landscape around San Gimignano, wake up in the warm and friendly place, indulge in a lovely breakfast and then explore the villages, bakeries, villages and...
