I recommend this place very highly, it was just fabulous. Beautiful rooms, great location and a wonderful host. My friend and I had adjoining bedrooms with a balcony, just lovely, great views. The township has all you need from the 'local' bar to great restaurants...as we say in Australia 'do yourself a favour' and get a most fabulous room at... More

I stayed the first week in September 2016 and absolutely loved it! My partner and I had room number 1 - select this one if you want to enjoy beautiful sunrises and glowing sunsets. The host, Maria, was quick to call us back when we couldn't figure out our GPS and she was able to help guide us. Her assistant,... More

We were so excited to be visiting San Donato in Poggio and we were not disappointed!! We had four wonderful nights at the fabulous Palazzo Malaspina. Terrific service from Maria and Mary. Our room was amazing with a balcony overlooking Tuscany. It seemed surreal! Can't recommend the village and this BnB highly enough

If you want to visit Tuscany, this is the place to stay - not only is San Donato a beautiful uncommercial town with great food - Palazzo Malaspina is a beautiful home to stay and come back and relax. Also, breakfast is wonderful with different home made cakes each day and I would have a jacuzzi bath in the evenings.

San Donato in Poggia is a magnificent medieval town, perfectly maintained, with a nice mix of good service and local casual. Palazzo Malaspina reminds us how nice it would have been to be even minor royalty 800 years ago. Very comfortable, beautifully renovated. All comforts without losing the heritage. Maria is a vivacious host, and Mary does wonderful breakfasts. A... More

A wonderful experience, the room very comfortable, very good location, and a lot of kindness and sympathy by staff. Breakfast was fantastic and plentiful. We felt like in our own home. A lovely, quiet village and very friendly people.
