Il Casale del Cotone

The Bed and Breakfast "Il Casale del Cotone" is located no more than 2,5 km from the medieval town of San Gimignano in the district of Siena and it is surrounded by 70 acres of vinyards and olive trees. It was erected in the 17th century at the bottom of the hill where the ancient Roman church "Pieve di Cellole", which inspired Giacomo Puccini to compose the opera "Suor Angelica", is located.
The building has been restored with full respect to its centennial history and special care has been taken selecting antique furniture characteristic of the Tuscan tradition. During the cold season breakfast is served in the hall where in past times the owner's friends used to meet before the hunting. In good weather the guests may sit in the century-old garden enjoyng the beautiful panorama of Tuscany's rolling hills.

Each bedroom has been individually designed, most of them also have wonderful views to the surrounding hills. For romantics and for special occasions fresh flowers and wine may be arranged.
The Bed & Breakfast is made up of 17 rooms (3 "Superior Rooms" -- very spacious stylishly furnished, breathtaking view of the surrounding hills) and 2 small apartments.
Private bathroom, satellite tv, hairdryer, minibar, and direct dial telephone are standard in every room.
