My boyfriend and parents stayed with Alessandro and his family at their beautiful B&B for four nights. It was better than we could have expected!! The views and location was 10 out of 10. San Gim was our favourite place of Tuscany.. It was so quaint! Alessandro cooked a 3 course meal every second night for guests that reserve a... 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

Alessandro puts his heart and soul into Il Casale del Cotone. He is very attentive to all of your needs and strives to make your stay excellent. I highly recommend a stay here. Very close to the center of town, easy visits to nearby Volterra, Monteriggioni, Siena, Firenza. Make sure to have the dinner he makes, delicious, and a good... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights in the middle of September 2013. The place is beautiful: Located in the hills of Tuscany, a 5 minutes drive from the lovely town of San Gimignano. It is a 17th century farmhouse, renovated into a stunning villa. Alessandro, the owner, is very helpful and welcoming. He gladly gave us all the relevant... More

This was the second time I have eaten at this B&B, but unlike before, this time we got to stay there as well. Il Casale del Cotone is in an idyllic Tuscan country setting with a beautiful outside dining area and a pool that's big enough for lap swimming, all with the beautiful countryside in the background. Alessandro's dinners are... More

This time we stayed for a long weekend and we loved every minute of it!
