We spent a went at Casale del Cotone and loved every minute of it! Our room was large and clean, with a beautiful view of a vineyard out the window. Breakfast included eggs and sausage/pancetta, fresh fruit, fresh croissants, yogurt, cheeses and meats. Enough variety to choose from everyday. The cappuccino and café Americano is perfectly made and worth sitting... More

Having escaped the hectic crowds of Firenze, Alessandro was so welcoming and helpful on arrival. Our rooms was spotlessly clean,air conditioned and the pool is in a wonderful location overlooking the Tuscan hills. To add to that we have just enjoyed the most fantastic meal, cooked by Alesandro himself (a set menu provided to all guests) and great value. Three... More

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 is the perfect host, as well as his lovely assistants. The location very peaceful with lovely views. Our apartment was huge, nice and cool, big... More

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

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
