We loved our stay at Palazzo Malaspina in San Donato. The breakfast was delicious, the rooms beautiful, bathroom very modern and clean and the bed was very comfortable. Could not ask for more. Hope to go back again someday.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Palazzo Malaspina in San Donato. The welcome was warm, Maria’s husband helped us with our luggage, and finding a parking space. The room was well appointed and the view was amazing from our own balcony. The breakfast was hearty and espresso divine. Although Maria was traveling away from the BNB her fabulous helper... More

Thanks to movies, books, pictures, and Seinfeld, we had particular expectations for our visit to Tuscany. From the moment we arrived in San Donato in Poggio and walked in the door of the Palazzo Malaspina, those expectations were realized. 

 Walking through the doors of the B&B is like going back in time. You can feel the history as you... More

The reason I continue to return to Palazzo Malaspina is the comfort and experience that Maria & Mary provide their guests. Great location, hearty breakfast , home made jams, cakes, fruit salads and other local specialties . Mary also prepares cooked to order eggs, rarely seen in a B&B. not to mention great coffee. The rooms are comfortable, quite and... More

Maria's B & B in the beautiful little village of San Donato in Poggio would have to be one of the most memorable experiences we had on our European adventure. I celebrated my 50th birthday there in June this year with some dear friends and the location, accommodation and hostess(es) could not have been more perfect. Maria was gracious and... More

Stayed with friends at this wonderful property for a week in June. The whole experience was spectacular. Maria is wonderful and left us in the care of the fabulous Mary for a few days who continued to make out visit special. Great garden for relaxing as well.

This B&B is, by far, the best place I've ever stayed. Not only is it a beautiful, 17th Century updated palazzo, but the owner adds to your vacation with gracious hospitality and attention to detail. Every day, she chats with her guests, checking to make sure they are going to worthwhile locations, that they have directions to get there, and... More
