This was our second time staying at Palazzo Malaspina. My husband and I came to Tuscany four years ago and decided to take my our son and daughter in law as their Christmas present.

Palazzo Malaspina is the perfect place to stay when going to Tucany. Your host Maria will take great care of you. The building was a "palace" as the name implies. The interior of the building I am sure looks as it did back in its day. Maria and her house keeper Mary will fix you a wonderfull breakfast each day,...

Palazzo Malaspina was a total gem. Located in a beautiful, peaceful medieval village, the B&B is ideal for those wanting to explore Tuscany and, in particular, Florence and Siena. Maria is a wonderful host and full of excellent suggestions for traveling (and parking!) around the area. I'm sure we wouldn't have found such picturesque little villages and towns without her...

This was by far the best place we stayed in Italy ! The accommodations were wonderful as well as the staff and food. I would have extended our trip at this location if it were possible and will most likely book here again on our next visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Palazzo Malaspina. The B&B is centrally located to explore the Tuscan countryside and its many cities and towns. Our bedrooms were spacious, clean and comfortable.
