My stay at Palazzo Malaspina was the highlight of my recent trip to Italy. All those beautiful images of Tuscany you see in books or on line, are right there at your doorstep, in this lovely little hilltop village. The village itself is surrounded by an ancient wall and Pallazo Malaspina is located right in the centre of the village,... More

This is a great home base when visiting Tuscany. This B & B is top-notch. The owner, Maria, was a wonderful hostess who helped us with winery and restaurant options. Malaspina is located in the heart of Tuscany, convenient to Siena and Florence. The breakfasts were amazing and the Cappuccino was the best. Maria's assistant, Mary, was wonderful, and made... More

Four of us stayed 6 nights, from April 5-11, 2014. It is a Renaissance Palazzo updated for modern comfort, yet maintains its old charms. Maria is the owner and Mary assists her with breakfast and tending to the guests. The breakfasts advertised on the website are delicious, with fresh fruit, meats, cheese, and pastries baked by Maria daily. Also Mary... More

My wife and I stayed two nights with Maria at Palazzo Malaspina last month and absolutely hated to leave. We were there during the low season, so San Donato was very quiet (just how we like it) but I can imagine it would be a hopping little place in the summer. The location is perfect - 30 minutes to Siena... More

I stayed here for four nights with my partner. We had a fantastic time and I couldn't recommend this place any more highly. San Donato in Poggio is a great little town with shops and restaurants very close by, however, it is also a nice and quiet getaway. Going for day trips to Florence, Siena, the surrounding wineries (etc), and... More

We enjoyed two magnificent nights here and loved every second of the stay. Maria made us feel very welcome. The homemade cakes that were left in the dining room for tea and coffee gave it the special touch. Mary was so helpful with our luggage and helping find my daughter Adriana's (Cinderella) lost shoe. It was a luxurious stay and... More

What a wonderful bed and breakfast! Maria and her family are excellent hosts....so nice and accommodating. Comfortable, darling rooms with plenty of space. Maria provided an excellent breakfast in the morning, with fantastic cappuccinos and a variety of foods. The B&B is also located next to an outstanding restaurant, La Toppa. We were also close to many other cities in... More

We went on a family vacation that included a stay in Tuscay this past October. Having had a great stay in Castellina a few years ago we decided to pick a different town in the same area and picked Palazzo Malaspina in San Donato. The combination of the excellent accomodations, great breakfast and the warmth of Ms Pelizzari and her... More

Lovely hotel with big comfortable rooms all with their own style. Picturesque setting, small and very quaint village. Maria, the owner, is very friendly and helpful and a wonderful host. I would definitely visit it again to explore more of this beautiful region. No hesitation in recommending Maria's B & B!

This was our third stay at Palazzo Malaspina. Maria is, as always, a gracious hostess. The standard at Palazzo Malaspina is consistently excellent, with a delicious breakfast, comfortable and beautifully decorated rooms; and a perfect location for our annual business trip to Tuscany. I would recommend it without hesitation!
