Totally amazing! This hotel as it actually maintains a very high standard. The hosts always do that little bit extra in order to make you feel especially welcome. The breakfast has the same quality as the accommodation itself. The cappuccino is lovely ... The village and its surroundings are just what you would expect from Tuscany. We will return to...

A super B and B made even better by the attentiveness of Maria and her staff. Couldn't have stayed in a better place for visiting the wonderful local area, Florence and Siena are about the same distance in opposite directions. Each morning at breakfast Maria and staff would ask where we were visiting that day then recommend other places along...

Very friendly staff, can give informations on what do discover around. B&B is a Historic building in the very centre. A few nice little restaurants around with high quality food (and wine). In good weather conditions the tables are placed on the village square. ATM close by.

Malaspina is a wonderful B&B. Maria was the gracious hostess providing homemade desserts and breakfast. She also helped with towns, sites, areas of interests to visit in Chianti. Mary,who works at the B&B, greeted us each morning with a smile and helped with traveling in Chianti. Would highly recommend.
