The Hotel is very Quiet and the owners are very friendly. The access to San J. is very simple and very close to that Hotel. The breakfast was very good, and the accommodation was very pleasant. Also the room was very clean .

We had an emergency situation and the phones I purchased did not work. I asked if I could e-mail my travel agent and he said "here...

We spent a week based here to explore the tuscany region. The room was comfortable and reasonably large overlooking the vineyard.Alessandro cooked twice will we were there and these meals are not to be missed . we would recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet and pictuesque base. The morning breakfast was excellent.

We stayed at ll Casale del Cotone this September. First, I made reservations via Booking.com which turned out to be not the best way to book this B&B. I recommend you make reservations directly through the hotel. The hotel manager, Alessandro, is the most helpful. He truly cares about his guests. The hotel is situated in a picturesque location just...

Driving here was spectacular! Just 5 mins past The hill town of San Gimignano. It is not a luxury hotel but it was a clean and quaint bed and breakfast with beautiful views of the tuscan hills. Exactly the same as every picture you've ever seen of Tuscany! Quiet and friendly, breakfast was nice outside. We did not have the...

Lovely hotel 5 mins drive from San Gimignano. A great place to stay, very clean and quiet at night time. Great place to stay to visit San Gimignano in the evening to avoid the mass of crowds during the day. We didn't use the pool but it was clean and well kept. We had great views of the vineyards and...

Casale del Cotone came highly recommended by some friends of ours that lived in Italy for several years so we were very excited to stay. My wife and I enjoyed everything about this romantic Tuscan jewel. The grounds are breathtaking, the rooms are comfortable, and the traditional Tuscan meal Alesandro served was the best we had during our two week...

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 ....
