We stayed here for 5 nights, and totally satisfied. It is a small B&B in a small town, so it was always quite and peaceful during our stay although august is generally the peak season in Italy. Our room was spacious, very clean and well equipped, and had an amazing view. Breakfasts were also delicious. Every morning Maria cooked a... More

Very nice b&b nice clean beautiful rooms and pretty views. Breakfast was great and staff seemed very nice. We could have used a little more help with planning our winery tour but we were able to figure it out for ourselves. Would recommend if you're looking for a central location in a neat little village. Had a lot of trouble... More

We stayed here 5 nights on our tour of Tuscany and wished we stayed more. Both Maria and Mary were so helpful and hospitable. The room was clean, good sized and equipped; the view that opened from small balcony was magnificent. The breakfast was delicious.The palazzo Malaspina is very well located in the heart of Tuscany. Strongly recommended.

The palazzo Malaspina is well located to experience all sights of Tuscany ( central to Florence, Siena, Luca, Pisa and even the coast) and served us greatly as a base. We stayed for a week, and whilst it is only 40 km outside of Florence, it feels like we were miles away from stress and hustle. Perfect! The B&B was... More

We stayed here 2 nights on our tour of Tuscany and wished we stayed more. Everything about the place is nice (the food, the accomodations, the setting) and the owners were very nice and bent over backwards to help us when things unexpectedly came up. Our tour was focused on the "big sites" of Tuscany and Malaspina is centrally located,... More
