Reviewed May 17, 2013

First, your hosts, Maria and Georgio treat you just like family. We have never felt so welcomed and been so well received as we were here. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous, very clean, and extremely comfortable. They serve a huge breakfast each morning, and Maria always has one of her fantastic breakfast cakes ready to be devoured. She makes them the day before and they don't last long because they are sooooooo good.
Mary, our breakfast attendant, is such a sweetie. I wanted to just take her home with us. She would make us our cappuccinos each morning and then make us scrambled eggs if we so desired.
Maria is always ready to help with any destination or meal choices for that day. I can't say enough great things about Maria and her B and B. This is the perfect location to call home base if you wish to explore.
We are so grateful we found this beautiful B and B for our recent trip to Italy.
Thank you Maria, Georgio, and Mary for taking such great care of us and always making us feel special during our stay with you.

Kelly and Theresa

My husband and I stayed at Palazzo Malaspina in April 2013 and would highly recommend it. The room we had was beautifully decorated, with a great bathroom and was spotlessly clean. Maria is an excellent host, the breakfasts were delicious, especially Maria's cakes and she also gave us good tips for visiting some of the amazing towns in Tuscany, which are truly beautiful. San Donato is a pretty Tuscan town and a great base for exploring the area.

We stayed in this lovely Palazzo for a week with our two children aged 5 and 10 yrs. The location of the place - in the centre of the charming town of San Donato - is in a relaxing and safe environment while at the same time it is really convenient for travelling all around Tuscany. We were greated at the doorstep with a warm smile by Mrs Maria, who immediately made us feel at home. We stayed in room No. 5 which had two windows overlooking the piazza and the main street and had been converted for us into a family room. The antique furniture was exquisite and the beds really comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and spotlessly clean, with plenty of large soft towels for enjoying a warm shower or jacuzzi. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and to our surprise there was a different variety of goods every day. We loved the capuccinos, the home-made cakes (especially the apple-pie!) and marmelades, the cheese and ham, the scrambled eggs. Mrs Maria was always eager to help and recommend to us which places of interest to visit. The lady helping her was also very sweet and helpful. We highly recommend Palazzo Malaspina and would love to come back sometime in the near future !!!

We came here on a weekend trip with our 8 month old baby. We had a very nice room with a gorgeous bathroom and jacuzzi tub. It was very nice that they were well equipped for babies, providing a pack n play and high chair. Breakfast was delicious with plenty to choose from with awesome cappuccinos. Maria and her helper were friendly and ready to assist us with whatever we needed. Maria scheduled reservations for us at wineries and restaurants. We were very pleased with all her recommendations. We loved the atmosphere and beautiful scenery of this little town perched upon a hill.

Our stay for 2 nights here was most enjoyable. Our room was lovely and the view from the little balcony magnificent. We had cool weather but what a treat to sit out on the balcony if the weather was good. Breakfast was delicious and very ample. The recommended restaurants were both excellent. It was a convenient location for visiting in the area. i highly recommend staying here.

We stayed at this lovely B&B towards the end of our trip to Italy. It was such a nice way to end our trip. Wonderful B&B environment, great hospitality, and DELICIOUS Breakfast made to order plus cappachino!! Bathrooms were very clean and spacious. Maria scheduled a wine tour at Casa Emma which was outstanding minus the walk to get there. FYI drive if you can ;) The town is small and quaint but breathtaking views. If we ever get to go back to Italy, we will defintely make a stop in at Palazzo Malaspina!

Maria and staff were wonderful. From the breakfast through to the end of the day, Palazzo Malaspina will not disappoint. The accomodations are roomy and very comfortable. The entry is spacious and is a welcoming sitting area. Maria's breakfast is full of fresh items...jams, spreads, torts, cakes, etc. and a sumptuous omelet if you like.
