“Superb visit to the real Italy”
Reviewed February 24, 2017 for a stay in July 2016

Staying in Palazzo Donati was simply divine. It is full of history and character and situated right in the centre of this wonderful village. We felt privileged to be surrounded by warm and friendly people that welcomed us. There was so much to do there too, especially if you love walking, art, history and good wholesome Italian food.
The hospitality is 1st class.
Cooking classes are a must.
Don't hesitate, just book!

“Relaxed; welcoming; simple pleasures - a step back in time”

We spent a wonderful week at Palazzo Donati last summer. We were a party of 10 including 6 children. Situated in the heart of a Medieval village, the Palazzo is a fabulous old building which inspired many bedtime stories. The owners couldn’t have been more helpful in suggesting places to visit and activities for all of us. Just being able to play in the large walled garden was very relaxing for us, as we knew the children couldn’t wander off. We hired a minibus and explored the area - there are hill towns with amazing views of the surrounding scenery. We took the children to the local golf course where they had fun putting, and there were events happening in the main square most nights. Being townies, our kids were delighted to be able to splash around in the Metauro river, and we learned how to catch tiddlers the Italian way (with a handkerchief!). We thoroughly enjoyed our week there.

“Warm and Welcoming Italian Palazzo”
Reviewed January 13, 2017 for a stay in April 2015

Every visitor to Italy should see Rome and Florence and Venice…but too often, those are the only parts of Italy that people see. Staying at Palazzo Donati in Mercatello sul Metauro, we had a chance to visit equally wonderful though perhaps less commonly visited Tuscan monuments to Italian civilization like the Palazzo Ducale in Urbino and, in Arezzo, the Basilica de S. Francesco with stunning frescoes by Piero della Francesca. Palazzo Donati itself is a warm and welcoming medieval building with twentieth century comforts, hosted by the Donati family, who make every effort to introduce visitors to the wonders of the Tuscan countryside. With Luisa, we visited local butcher and cheese shops, an ancient monastery, a tower where Dante was once imprisoned and many other historical sites. One day we went truffle hunting and on another, we made pasta in the beautiful old kitchen at Palazzo Donati. Luisa and her family, who speak English as well as Italian, seem very willing to customize your visit to match your specific abilities and interests.

Thank you so much David for your kind words . Although , I just need to pinpoint for our many future visitors that Mercatello sul Metauro and so Palazzo Donati are located in the Region Marche, not quite in Tuscany ,even though just on the border with Tuscany and Umbria. Thank you so much again!!!

“Most amazing trip Ever!”
Reviewed January 10, 2017 for a stay in February 2016

The Donatis gave us the best of all of Florence and Tuscany. We went on a private tour and our accommodations were comfortable and charming. We were made to feel like family. The tour bus was clean and upscale. The food was fresh and Louisa accomodated my dietary restrictions in a way that I did not feel deprived. Highlight after highlight with lots of surprises and unexpected fun. I will never forget this family and still follow and keep in touch. Book now. 6 out of 5 stars!
