We loved our 12-night stay. It is 20km from Florence which is very convenient. The location is close to Tavarnelle, with lots of good restaurants and a supermarket. We divided our time between day trips and sightseeing and the pool. Our room was very comfortable, we had an extra bed for our daughter and there was more than enough space. We had a large balcony that was terrific for dining al fresco in the evenings. The pool was lovely with an outdoor bar terrace and very well maintained. Breakfasts were most generous with a laid back atmosphere and a very large selection of food for every taste. The real strength of this hotel lies in the staff who make you feel as if you are almost family! The manager Antonella is absolutely delightful, she has appointed the hotel stylishly and she exudes a warmth which is infectious to her staff. She has lots of excellent recommendations for local trips and where to eat, The reception will arrange bookings to any of the museums in Florence or Sienna, which allows you to chill and not have to plan too far ahead. We loved the towns south of Sienna and there are some great bargains to be had in the outlets north of Florence. Just ask at reception or chat with her over breakfast! We met a number of guests who come back regularly. One family has been coming every summer for the last 15 years! We also want to go back already…
Palazzo Malaspina is a small authentic Tuscan B&B right in the middle of the small Tuscan village of San Donato. The owner, Maria, was very welcoming and did her best to ensure that we had a great stay. The breakfast was amongst the best that we had in Tuscany and included some of Maria's homemade jams. These were a real treat.
The location is excellent. San Donato is a small village conveniently located so that you can do day trips to various Tuscan towns. The hotel is situated next door to a couple of restaurants. There are scenic views from this hill-top village making a sunset walk before dinner the perfect way to end a Tuscan day.

The Bed and Breakfast Palazzo Malaspina is situated in San Donato in Poggio, a small medieval town nestled among vineyards …More
The building is set in a very picturesque area surrounded by olive groves and vineyards.
Staff was exceptional, very helpful. It was a quiet time for us to be there so can't comment on any noise but was very quiet overall. A little difficult to find so make sure you get specific directions.
Worth the find.
I would recommend for sure.
