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....

Charming B&B in a nice little town. The room and especially the view was wonderful. Everything was clean and nicely decorated. The service was very kind and friendly. Breakfast was amazing! We hope that we can come back soon.

Very nice B&B, very comfortable, nice room, little balcony in the room and a nice little garden/patio downstairs. Nearby all restaurants and in the middle of the town. Very nice breakfast and very warm welcome, stay and attitude of the owner Maria and Mry who cooked the breakfast. More than one reason to come back at this address. This was... More

We stayed at this wonderful B and B in June for 5 nights with our 3 children. Maria and Mary were very accommodating and take great pride in running and maintaining a very well run guest house. We had room 5 which is very large and beautifully decorated, room enough to set up an extra bed for our youngest. It... More

After scouring the internet for a suitable B&B in Tuscany we decided upon Palazzo Malaspina in San Donato in Poggio (about halfway between Florence and Siena). Having a B&B ourselves in Australia we knew what we wanted and had high expectations. I would describe this property using words like, it offers old world charm though with excellent thoroughly modern amenities,... More

The main reason we went to Italy this summer was the Palazzo Malaspina. We arranged our entire 19 day trip around a five night stay at the Palazzo Malaspina. It looked absolutely lovely on their website and it is set in a small Tuscany village which is what we were looking for. Our expectations were very high and I can... More

I traveled by myself and wanted a centrally located village to see Tuscany sites. The palazzo was perfect. Great hosts, beautiful room and the town is so quaint. Great location close to San Gimignano. My single room had a small balcony overlooking the mountains. The town is about a mile from the highway and rural. The palazzo was built in... More
