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

Palazzo Malaspina suited our needs to perfection. We are a family of New Zealanders who live in N.Z. as well as China and the U.K. who wanted to stay somewhere in Tuscany for varying periods after the wedding of a niece. Palazzo Malaspina's location in San Donato meant it was central between Florence and Siena and easily reached by road... More

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.

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.

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.

Stayed with friends at this wonderful property for a week in June. The whole experience was spectacular.
