Wonderful! Most romantic place you will found! Though we have travelled as a family we were enjoying this place immensely! The courtyard, room and pool were amazing! The whole atmosphere was just from "Under the Tuscan Sun". Owner was very friendly and eager to chat. The breakfast was a little boring but the terrace itself was charming and picturesque .... More

“Most beautiful and romantic spot” is what our traveling friends called Il Casale de Cartone. Early June 2014 marked our third visit to Martelli’s charming country inn – and it only gets better with time and ongoing enhancements. The location near San Gimignano, the rooms, swimming pool, breakfasts and gourmet evening meals are great and make this the perfect place... More

It was our second visit to Il Casale del Cotone and we were as satisfied as the first time. This time we stayed here with friends, and they were even more enthusiastic. The rooms are not very special, but it is the beautiful place, the atmosphere of the B&B and the way Alessandro takes care of his guest that makes... More

My family and I discovered this place on trip advisor. We chose is because of the great reviews and we weren't disappointed. Alessandro, the owner is very kind and also cooks amazing dinners. The rooms are clean and the views are gorgeous. It's 5 mins away from the crowded San gimignano. Give it a try and you won't regret !

Alessandro has created a lovely B&B farmhouse with a perfect location just outside of San Gimignano. The farmhouse is cozy and rustic with gorgeous views, large pool, and a nice change from the big hotels. Alessandro is a gracious host, who makes fantastic delicious dinners every other night that shouldn't be missed. There is plenty of outdoor space to sit... More

I've been to Italy seven times. This was by far my most memorable experience! Alessandro and his staff are warm, friendly and attentive. Plus, Alessandro is an awesome cook and, well, easy on the eyes! The dinners were out of this world. The farmhouse, adorable, cozy, authentic, rustic. The views from my room- absolutely incredible. This is, by far, the... More

My first view of this property was astonishment. It is absolutely beautiful! The chapel with its beautiful music that bids the traveler come in and meditate is remarkable. However, when our group arrived, uncertainty reigned. Despite arrangements made long in advance, there seemed to be confusion and we waited interminably for rooms to be assigned. Despite the fact that the... More
