This place is a gem in a walled medieval castle. Actually was much easier to find then we had anticipated, the directions were spot on. Marie was most helpful by having a room available at the last moment and making us feel very welcomed. The room, #2, was a perfect size with a great view of the country side. Had... More

Quite village located in the heart of Tuscany, halfway between Florence and Siena. Maria and Mary where perfect hosts, cooking great breakfasts and sharing their knowledge of the many things to do close by. I would definitely recommend staying at Palazzo Malaspina to friends and family.

Maria and Mary went out of their way to suggest places to see off the beaten track. Wonderful little settlements with beautiful Tuscan cuisine. Breakfasts superb with meeting... More

My wife and I were looking for a base of operations in the Chianti, Tuscany region, and couldn't have been happier with the Palazzo Malaspina B &B, San Donato in Poggio. Located < 3 km off the Florence-Sienna freeway, this charming, walled city offered easy access to both those cities, as well as San Gimignano, PIsa and Luccca. The B... More

The small hotel is in the centre of the pretty and quiet little town of San Donato. A great location for touring Tuscany. Although the owner was away, we were warmly greeted by the housekeeper, who was very knowledgable about the region and gave us plenty of information about where to go and what to see every day. She provided... More

We have stayed in Tuscany before and have found the crowds a little overwhelming. We were therefore delighted with this B&B in San Donato in Poggio. We stayed for 4 nights at the end of June and managed to see the Patron Saints parade complete with medieval dress, drums and flag throwing. There was barely an English speaking tourist there....
