Residenza d'Epoca Palazzo Malfatti
Aparthotel in Massa Marittima , Italy Italy > Tuscany > Grosseto > Massa Marittima  
Available on:

Historic Hotel

Year erected: 13th century
What is the history of the property?
The Historical residence Palazzo Malfatti is a set of apartments situated in the heart of Massa Marittima in a thirteenth-century Palazzo of great historical importance.

The owners are mentioned in the Divine Comedy in Canto V of Purgatorio (Dante Alighieri).

130 “Deh, quando tu sarai tornato al mondo,

e riposato de la lunga via”,

seguitò 'l terzo spirito al secondo,

133 “ricordati di me che son la Pia;

Siena mi fè, disfecemi Maremma;

salsi colui che 'nnanellata pria

136 risposando m'avea con la sua gemma".

Dante meets Pia de Tolomei in Purgatory to which this verse refers, and that's where the story of Palazzo Malfatti begins.

The building already existed in the thirteenth century and was given the name of Palazzo Pannocchieschi.

The Pannocchieschi family was divided into three branches: the Pannocchieschi di Pietra, those of Perolla and those of Travale, from whom the Siennese Pannocchieschi lord of Elci was descended.

The lord Pannocchieschi (had known his statement) at the beginning of the twelfth century in the territory of Volterra. After of the thirteenth century were rooted in the territories of Maremma in relation to the exploitation of mineral resources: they had a noble Palazzo in Massa Marittima, still preserved, and the surrounding country founded Rocchette Pannocchieschi settlement related to the exploitation of copper deposits and silver.

Pannocchieschi emanated from the house of several bishops of the diocese of Volterra.

One of the Pannocchieschi Family was the husband of Pia de Tolomei. According to tradition (and was mentioned in CantoV of Dante's Purgatory) he kills his wife so that he could marry Margherita Aldobrandeschi. The current Palazzo Malfatti was built for her.

Many of the documents belonging to the family are preserved today in the State Archives of Sienna, in the "Pannocchieschi of Elci family" collection.

The present appearance of the building is the result of many changes that occurred over time. In the XVI and XVII century, several additions were made by the Malfatti family, who had become the owner. Another significant restoration was carried out at the beginning of the XX century with the intention of recovering the original medieval style. At this intervention must be the set of visible light windows in the first and the second floor. The lodges on the lower floor were also extensively renovated in the XX century. It was that public meetings of the Medieval City Market hold until the World War II).

Château de l'Epinay
Hotel in Saint-Georges-sur-Loire , France France > Pays de la Loire > Maine et Loire > Angers  
Available on:

Historic Hotel

Year erected: 15th century
What is the history of the property?
Over the centuries, the Château de l'Epinay has known many illustrious families. Each of them has brought their own touch and contributed to the undeniable charm that characterises it today.

Great Anjou families have owned the fief of Epinay. The Gastinels, founders of the fief in the 12th century, were succeeded by the Montalais de Vern in the 15th and 16th centuries, the La Jaille family in 1451, the Brie-Serrant family and the d'Andigné family. At the end of the 16th century, the land passed by marriage to the d'Andigné family, who kept the fief until 1730, when the de Cumonts became owners. One of the descendants of this family, Arthur de Cumont, who inherited the property in 1874, was Minister of Public Instruction. In our time, the fief was for a long time the property of Mr Gasiorowski, then mayor of Saint-Georges. The castle was bought back in 1988 after many years of neglect and was largely restored with great care.

The fief also evokes one of the most prestigious names in French literature, Jean Racine, whose memory is curiously associated with the history of l'Epinay and more particularly with the Priory through the lawsuit opposing him to Le Ferron to obtain this office in 1666 following the resignation of his uncle Antoine Sconin, canon of Uzès and Prior of l'Epinay.

After 3 years of proceedings, Racine gave up the title of Prior de l'Epinay and kept the echo of these quarrels in the only comedy he wrote: "Les Plaideurs": "Chicanery is a language that is stranger to me than to anyone else, and I have only used a few barbaric words that I may have learnt in the course of a trial that neither my judges nor I have ever heard properly".

The Countess of Pimbèche in this famous comedy therefore owes her existence in part to a disputed title of Prieur de l'Epinay, which Racine nevertheless mentions in the privilege of "Andromaque" in 1667.
What was the era and/or the architectural style in which the property was built?
It is a 15th and 17th century house.
Is the property surrounded by other historic buildings?
Yes, in the commune of Saint-Georges-sur-Loire, there is the Château de Serrant and a former abbey which now houses the town hall. The Château de l'Epinay is located in the Loire Valley, which is home to many castles, including the Château d'Angers.

Many renovations have taken place, and are still taking place. However, we have kept the charm and authenticity of the old building.

For the XIIIth century, the counts of Brach were known as Lords of Montussan. Moune, in the village of the old coaching inn, would date from the same period.

Pierre de Brach writes in 1572: « (…) de mille fantassins de qui les estendarts plantés dedans mes champs bouffaient de toutes parts*. »

Ronsart and Montaigne stayed there. Then the house belonged at the XVIIIth century to the family of Bonnefon, who possessed big properties in the parishes of Beychac and Montussan. They were seized by the Revolutionary government and sold in seventeen lots as national domain in the month of brumaire of the year III of the Republic. Sir Labre bought the noble house and the first lot at the price of 28 200 gold francs. This property passed then to mister de Frémont, then by alliance to mister Leymarie, his son-in-law.

These friars remained here until 1822, the year in which this convent was suppressed by military orders. The closure of the convent produced a strong upheaval in Fuentes, since the presence of the friars was of vital importance in religious, social and cultural life, they assisted the sick, fed the poor, preached and acted as counselors ... Fame of the miracles of the Saint attracted many faithful, his fame even reached Seville, which turned Fuentes into a small place of pilgrimage, forcing the town to change its infrastructure with the increase of inns, inns, increased sales of products of the land… Therefore, its closure produced an isolation that negatively affected the economic, social and cultural development of the town.
