Palazzo Malaspina is located in San Donato in Poggio, a small medieval town nestled among vineyards and olive groves in the heart of the famed Chianti Classico district, halfway between the cities of Siena and Florence.
The building, which dates back to the late Renaissance, offers visitors an elegant and relaxed atmosphere reminiscent of the past when the Palazzo belonged to the local nobility, the Ticci and Malaspina families, and, as of the nineteenth century, to the Pellizzari family.
The palazzo has been tastefully restored by the Pellizzari family with great attention to detail in order to preserve the characteristic elegance of the establishment.
The five double guest rooms have been decorated with the family's antique furniture and with precious fabrics by Busatti of Anghiari, creating a sense of individuality and the warmth of a private home. The color scheme of each room reflects a typical hue of the Tuscan landscape, from the yellow of broom bushes to the pale blue of lavender. The rooms command a view of the glorious Tuscan hills or allow guests to admire the relaxed lifestyle of the medieval town.
A buffet breakfast is served in the original kitchen, where one can admire the 12th- century fireplace with its original stone lintel. Guests can also enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the garden, sipping a glass of Chianti while taking in the magnificent view of the Tuscan hills
All of Palazzo Malaspina's 5 double guest rooms include:
- Private bath with shower - Air conditioning
- Satellite TV - Telephone
- Hair dryer - Wall safe
