Hotel description

The Palazzo Malaspina is an elegant and romantic bed & breakfast in San Donato in Poggio, Tuscany, a small village from the middle-ages in the famous Chianti Classico between Siena and Florence. A serene ambience invites you to discover the beauty of Tuscany or enjoy your honeymoon!
The family hotel Palazzo Malaspina
The palace from the late renaissance once belonged the aristocratic families Ticci and Malaspina. Today, the bed & breakfast in Tuscany welcomes visitors and offers a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of romance in a historic setting. Through a loving restoration, the characteristic charm of the estate has been preserved and a hotel has been created, that will enchant you as much as the small village, in which it is located, will. The private and intimate atmosphere (the owner actually lives in the main building herself) offers you the freedom to leave everyday-life far behind. The small and magnificent garden on the back side of the hotel will definitely add to your content. The Palazzo Malaspina just is the ideal place for a Tuscany vacation you will never forget!
The rooms at the bed & breakfast Palazzo Malaspina
The castle hotel Palazzo Malaspina houses only five double rooms. They are all very spacious and create a homey flair through the combination of antiquities from the family’s property, delicate fabrics, terracotta floors and open beamed ceiling. The colour-styling of the accommodations reflects the diverse nuances of the landscapes of Tuscany. The rooms at the Palazzo Malaspina offer a view on the hills of Tuscany and into the life on the streets of the middle-aged San Donato in Poggio. All rooms include air-conditioning and two rooms at the family hotel can be fitted with extra beds. Some of the beautiful bathrooms include a Jacuzzi and/or old stone washbasins that were embedded into the walls.
Activities in Tuscany
After breakfast, which is prepared by the owner of the Tuscany hotel personally, including home-made jams and cakes, the castle hotel Palazzo Malaspina offers a diverse number of activities. On one hand, you can discover the magnificent landscapes of Tuscany right outside the doors of the hotel. Drive through vineyards and olive groves on small, winding roads and discover enchanting villages like Greve, Gaiole, Radda, Castellina, Panzano, Badia a Passignano and Linari. Or you can visit the famous cities like Siena, Arezzo, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano, Certaldo, Volterra, Pienza and Montepulciano – they’re all less than an hour away!
