Didn't want to leave!

Villa Iris truly felt like a home away from home. Lucia was so lovely and welcoming, not to mention an AMAZING cook. My boyfriend and I arrived first, where there was homemade foccacia, cheese, cured meats, wine etc for us. There were six of us altogether, and we had Lucia cook for us twice (one fish dinner, one meat dinner), and also did the cooking class with her. We would highly recommend doing all! We all agreed that the seafood pasta that she made was the best we had ever tasted (and we've all visited Italy many times). The whole place is done beautifully and the garden/pool area is stunning when the sun is setting. I also don't think I've ever slept so well while being away; the shutters in the upstairs room we stayed in blocked out all light, and it was so peaceful. You can walk up the hill to a restaurant and wine shop (unfortunately this was fully booked for the week when we visited, so would suggest booking ahead). If you're into walking/hiking, you can also walk to San Gimignano, which will take 45 minutes-1 hour. The only suggestion I could make is to have a full length mirror somewhere, as we couldn't find any in the house and would be nice to see what your outfit looks like before you head out! We were all very upset to leave and can't wait to visit again.

Perfect in every way

I can't recommend Villa Iris enough... I stayed here for a week in June with five other ladies for a birthday trip of a lifetime and this is what it was.. Upon arrival we where met by Lucia the owner. I don't think I have ever had a more friendly and informative greeting. The Villa is totally enchanting, set within walking distance (50 mins up hill!) to the picturesque town of San Gimignano. Its beautifully furnished with a true Tuscan feel with all the up to date comforts from home. Hairdryer in every room, towels including pool towels, TV and a fully equipped laundry room. The pool is amazing and there is everything to make it a truly relaxing experience.

We had Lucia cook for us on our last night, well worth having this, just make sure you save yourself for the feast that arrives.

We hired two cars which made it easy to shop and pop to town. We visited wineries and Florence and did a lot of shopping for leather goods! We ate in some amazing places but you must try a tucked away small restaurant in the heart San G called Dulcisinfundo, traditional food and wine, small menu but delicious and great owner who runs it.

Before leaving for the airport we met Gabriele, Lucia's husband. what a fabulous couple with great stories to tell.. Beautiful, breathtaking views, Tuscany you stole my heart and I'll be back to stay at Villa Iris...

Beautiful villa with great owners 5 of 5

Our family of 10, 6 adults and 4 children visited Villa Iris in June. We were met at the villa by Gabriele, Lucia, and Cristina, who is the helpful translator. We took a tour with them and they helped us learn how to operate all the appliances, etc. They are a warm friendly couple who take a lot of pride in their property. Gabriele took a few of our party to a organic fruit store, cheese shop, and butcher. They are eager to help in any manner.

The description of the property is very accurate. All the bedrooms are very large and include a private bath. Each room has individual air conditioning which was needed at night. Be careful using the air conditioning because electricity in Italy is expensive. The villa include some of the cost, but we went over the allotted amount when temperatures soared to 95-100.

The home has a large inside dining table and also a covered dining table and sitting area outside where we ate all of our meals and relaxed. The kitchen is very nice with good selection of pots and pans, dishes, and wine glasses.

The setting of the villa is gorgeous. The gated property is filled with beautiful flowers and very tastefully landscaped. The pool, bocce, ping pong, and game table are fantastic for family games and to keep the kids entertained. There is also a leather sofa with a large TV if weather not good and also an outside TV.

The villa is centrally located so that you can easily visit some great wineries of Tuscany.

We asked Lucia to prepare dinner one night. Everything was fantastic. The food was high quality and served with great wines. Our six year old granddaughter said it was the “best meal of her life”. Not only did we enjoy it, but Lucia prepared a special meal for our vegetarian daughter and special dishes for our two son-in-laws who are gluten free. It was a memorable evening for all of us.

We highly recommend this property!

Absolutely stunning! 5 of 5

We hired Villa Iris for a week in May 2017 to celebrate my dad's 60th. Our party was comprised of 8 adults and 5 children. We couldn't have been more impressed with the Villa and the surroundings. Pictures do not disappoint and the Villa is absolutely beautiful. The owners Gabriele and Lucia are lovely - they were there when we arrived (late on the Saturday night) with a lovely buffet/wine prepared for us. They were so attentive in making sure we were all set up/happy and ensuring that the sleeping arrangements/rooms for the children were all sorted During the week they stopped by a few times (one of the parasols being replaced) and were always very friendly and checking we were OK, but never being over-bearing or intrusive. They were especially lovely to the children. The Villa is stunning- the grounds in particular are set up in such a lovely way with different shades spots eg the hammock or shades area near the pool with overhanging flowers, up to the swing set which the kids loved. It is so well thought out. Lucia cooked for us one night which was fantastic and well worth doing.

San Gimignano itself is lovely, picturesque with nice restaurants and a great ice cream parlour. It is possible to walk from the Villa - a few of the adults did this a number of times- though it does take around 40 minutes. Gabriele gave us a taxi number which we used most of the time instead which was about 15 euros each way from the villa to San gimignano. There is also a nearby farm - Poggio Alloro- where we did a wine tour one of the mornings which was really good. They were fully booked for lunch/dinner when we tried, so would recommend booking in advance. There is also another restaurant nearby (5-10 minutes walk) where we had a lovely meal one night - again I would recommend booking as it can be busy.

Villa Iris.....excellence and first class experience.

Me and my wife, together with 5 more couples, reserved two weeks in May 2017 at Villa Iris.

I can only say, Villa Iris is a superior establishment, built with a Tuscan traditional style, with all the comforts and excellent quality.

Gabriele, his wife Lucia, and all his staff has been wonderful in all senses. Very professional and always available, they will bend over backward to make your stay a memorable one and a first class quality vacation. From an amazing buffet at our arrival, to the level of cleanness, from the superior dinners they provided us upon request, to the continuous attention to details, they have made our vacation a superior experience.

Villa Iris is an amazing renovation of a 400 years old "Tuscan farm house". Completely redone, and upgraded with all the comforts of a modern 5 starts resort. The website and related pictures represent just a glimpse of its superior qualities.

Gabriele and Lucia are very kind individuals and managers, they have a long and amazing experience. Lucia is a superior cook, and she cooked and catered three excellent dinners, allowing us to appreciate many Tuscan delicacies.

I recommend the Villa Iris experience with full confidence. You will be amazed by the beauty of the resort, which ultimately enhance the amazing Tuscan surroundings.

The Perfect Tuscan Villa

Villa Iris is an exceptionally well-kept villa that was recently remodeled and hosts many of the modern amenities. The villa lives up to the pictures you see online without any surprises. The villa accommodated our party of 6 couples very comfortably and had ample indoor and outdoor sitting areas to relax. While it was still a bit chilly for the pool in late April, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the bocce ball court, ping pong, and foose ball. We even used the sauna and fitness equipment frequently. Situated on the secluded hillside of San Gimignano, we loved the picturesque, but challenging, hike to this historic town. Our group also found the nearby farm, Poggio Alloro, a wonderful amenity to have within a short walk - lunch and dinner there was super. As mentioned in previous reviews, Lucia's dinners are a must - thoroughly enjoyed the nights at the villa.

San Gimignano is conveniently located near the major highway that connects Florence to Siena, providing easy access to both of these beautiful cities. We had day trips to each of these towns and also enjoyed a wine tour of the Chianti Region. The location was perfect for the experience we were looking for in Tuscany.

Gabriele and Lucia were very welcoming and accommodating before, during and after our stay. We recommend Villa Iris without hesitation and plan to stay there again when returning to Tuscany.

Ryan T. 06 Mai 2017 Florida

Excellent villa and great location

This is a beautiful villa with a lot of charm and extras. The location is ideal for touring the Tuscany region and then relaxing afterwards. They have some games available for use: ping pong, fussball, bocce, sauna. The patio is a great place to start your day and the pergola is the perfect spot to finish it, with some wine and the views. Our weather was fantastic the two weeks we were there. We had the owner's wife, Lucia, come and prepare 3 meals for us and they were all fantatstic! The bedrooms were great and other facilities were modern and comfortable. We loved San Gimignano and the restaurants there were all very good, mostly with great views while dining. Very friendly owners who will go out of their way to keep you satisfied. The pool was a little cool during our stay, but we did get in a few days.

Amazing!! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

My first trip to Italy was made so memorable by our stay at Villa Iris. The staff was so welcoming to us and helpful during our stay. They made us feel like family. Our group consisted of 6 couples, which was absolutely perfect for our stay. I could have stayed at the Villa the entire trip without ever leaving the grounds and it would have been totally worth it. Fantastic updates, kitchen and the views were better than I could have imagined. We spent so much time sitting around the outside table and talking about our day and just soaking in the atmosphere. So grateful and would highly recommend to anyone looking to make the trip to stay at Villa Iris.

What a beautiful property, the perfect combination of old world charm and modern amenities ! Everything was even better than we expected. We were four couples and it was an unexpected pleasure to discover we could all shower every morning and have excellent water pressure and plenty of hot water. The grounds were spectacular and perfectly maintained and we played many games of bocci and ping pong while enjoying the amazing views of the countryside. Gabriele and Lucia were wonderful hosts and did everything possible to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We would all go back again!

Beautiful Tuscan villa ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We stayed at this beautiful villa with three other couples. It was actually better than the pictures! The rooms are all ensuite and beautiful. But what makes this special is the beautiful setting and grounds. We spent all of our time outside on the covered patio or playing bocce ball. The gazebo by the pool is also a fabulous place to relax and enjoy the surroundings. It was so lovely we ate in every evening which was easy given the well-appointed kitchen. A must for anyone staying here is to have Lucia cook dinner at least one evening. She is a professional chef and the meal was one of the best any of us has ever experienced. The location within walking distance to San Gimignano is wonderful. We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone looking for a special place in Tuscany.

UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Well... where to start. My family and I have travelled the world and have had the opportunity to stay at the most amazing destinations and hotels and thought we have seen it all, until we stayed at Villa Iris. Gabrielle and Lucia, the owners, made our stay very special by always attending all our needs and requests with so much care. After eating at several Michelin start restaurants we encountered Lucia, who is also a trained chef, who cooked dinner for us two nights during the week. I have to say that no one in our 12 people group have ever had a better meal. Her food was just amazing!!!! Villa Iris is so well designed that our group never felt that we were bumping into each other but quite the opposite, you could always find that little place and enjoy solitude even among a big group. We had a morning walk every day which became like our ritual. The walk to San Gimignano was so delightful and brought all those wonderful scenery to our eyes. The rolling hills, the vineyards, the fog covering part of the towers of San Gimi was the perfect way to start our day. I would recommend Villa Iris to everyone who is looking after that special and unique place in the world

Perfect Tuscan villa down to every last detail ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We stayed at Villa Iris in August 2016 with a group of 11 people and it did not disappoint!! The property is just beautiful - down to every last detail and the location is perfect for exploring the Tuscan countryside (although it was difficult to decide whether to stay by the beautiful pool each day or to venture out)! With every bedroom having its own ensuite, there was plenty of room for everyone. The Tuscan style kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need and we enjoyed the experience of cooking Fiorentina steaks on the outdoor charcoal BBQ. Lucia and Gabriele were fantastic hosts - they are very friendly and nothing is too difficult for them as they live nearby. Lucia's welcome dinner was also a very nice touch. We loved our stay at Villa Iris, which honestly cannot be faulted. We would highly recommend Villa Iris to any family or group looking for a luxurious and relaxing Tuscan getaway. We hope to return in the future sometime. Bianca and Sam

First Class Villa In Central Location For All Of Tuscany ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Absolutely AMAZING! The communication leading up to the trip is fantastic. You are greeted at the Villa with food and wine as well as a complete walk through. The pictures are perfect to give you an idea of what you will see when you arrive but it’s hard to replicate the sunsets from Villa Iris by a photo. Gabriele and Lucia are great hosts and thankfully our group decided to have Lucia prepare two meals for us. Both of those nights were amazing and were some of the highlights of the trip. The Villa is geared toward outdoor living with a great outdoor dining table, amazing grounds, beautiful pool, bocce court, ping pong and more. The best was coming home from a day trip and spending the afternoon with the group around the pool. Great for a large group with options to cook both inside and outside. The kitchen has everything from gas cook top to microwave and the added bonus of a brand new large refrigerator.

Fantastic property ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

A truly magnificent villa in a near perfect location. It is a five minute drive from San Gimganno and very convenient for visiting Florence and Sienna. However parking in the popular tourist destinations can be a problem so best to go early or late in the day when the crowds have thinned. However, we have often visited this area and were quite happy to spend as much time as possible around a great pool at the villa. The owners were very friendly and we would highly recommend one ( or more) dinners prepared by Lucia on site which were really good and of great restaurant quality. Not surprising as she used to run a restaurant in Florence. Could not recommend this property more.

MEMORABLE STAY AT VILLA IRIS ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Gabriele and Lucia were wonderful hosts to our family of 14, so helpful in every way and so kind. The villa was clean and very comfortable. It is most definitely geared toward outdoor living with a perfectly groomed, lovely yard with infinity pool, hot tub, bocce court and even a separate lawn area for soccer or other sports. Lucia prepared a great welcome dinner for us upon arrival and, during the week, prepared two other dinners that were "out of this world". The villa is very close to San Gimignano, a beautiful town for sightseeing, shopping and good food. Our family will never forget the beautiful memories made at this wonderful villa. Mille grazie, Gabriele and Lucia!

Paradise. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We spent the most blissful week at Villa Iris. The house and the grounds are so beautifull designed and maintained; every detail was considered when building this lovely villa. We were a party of 7 and had more than enough space...great gathering areas and also large enough to have your own personal, quiet space. And the owners are delightful...they greeted us like family and sent us off as well. Nothing but good things to say. Thanks you Villa Iris for the amazing memories you helped to create!
Korki Newburyport . 18 Juni 2016 USA

Lovely Villa; accomodating owners! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The villa is beautifully designed, clean and large, so we all had space (we were a diverse group, mostly couples along with two 20-something aged daughters). The infinity pool was the magnet each morning and late afternoon. The villa is as beautiful as the photos indicate, yet there is one view that is not shown...from the pool area you can look up to the medieval towers of San Gimignano - stunning! Its a hilly hike to town, if you chose to walk, and a convenient drive to Siena, Voltera and Chianti wine region, as well as the super market. Absolutely schedule a dinner which Lucia prepares - her ragu sauce and grilled pork ribs were to die for (she used to own a restaurant in Florence)! Recommend that you allow for time to luxuriate at this beautiful villa...play bocce, ping pong, and lounge...touring each day can be tiring. Bring bug spray...too. :)

Can not say enough about our stay here at Villa Iris. Gabrielle and Luccia were the perfect hosts. They were always available for information up to and including the day of our arrival. They went the distance and found one of our cell phones left in a taxi in Florence a week later. They villa was perfect, private rooms comfortable accommodations, beautiful scenery, wonderful food. We will definitely be back. Plenty of space for 11 of us and had the most memorable time. Thank You for sharing your Villa with us.

Beautiful, great time with friends. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We are a group of 4 couples that stayed a week at Villa Iris and had the time of our lives! The villa was perfect in every way, the layout worked well for our group . The location was great for day trips to Florence, Siena, and other Tuscan towns. The property was spotless, and the owners, Lucia and Gabriele were very easy to work with, and helpful with questions and suggestions. They arranged an awesome lunch at Fattoria Poggio Alloro, a winery within 10 min. walking distance. Lucia cooked dinner for us twice which was very good! The outdoor area was beautiful and relaxing. The 45 min. walk to San Gimignano was a bit of a workout, but the scenery couldn't have been better! We would recommend this property to friends and family, and hope to return again someday!

A True Paradise! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We had the good fortune of spending a week in Villa Iris back in October of 2015, and I have to say that this experience was something out of a movie! Absolutely spectacular, gorgeous, and it really captured Tuscany in such a beautiful way. Every detail was calculated and done with care! Gabriele didn't miss a thing in creating a warm atmosphere and making this a Home Away From Home. The grounds were impeccable, the views breathtaking and the setting just incredible. Gabriele and Lucia were such fabulous and gracious hosts, and they were always there if you needed them. We had a cooking lesson with Lucia, and will never forget that meal. It was absolutely unbelievable, and there was enough food to feed 6 of us two times! Don't miss this experience with Lucia! She makes everything look so easy and watching her in action, is entertaining all in itself! She's fabulous and along with Gabriele, they make a great team! A day doesn't go by that we don't think of Villa Iris, and our only regret is that we didn't have more time there. Thank you Gabriele and Lucia for having given us the time of our lives! You are truly the best, and look forward to seeing you again!!

Villa Iris Is Perfect! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Exceptional hospitality. Amazing chef Lucia. The house is very well equipped and extremely comfortable. The outdoor living is stunning. The booking process is very easy and Martina answered all of our questions.

We were a group of 6 couples who stayed at Villa In November. We were so happy that we spent a week there. The owners (Lucia and Gabriele) along with Irida were so kind and helpful. The meals that Lucia and Irida prepared for us were outstanding. We had a problem with our transportation not showing up on our check out day. Even though they were busy with a turnaround day they helped us try to find alternate transportation and made us lunch! We would all stay at Villa Iris again (and hope to again one day). Thank you so much for a wonderful week.

Villa Iris - San Gimignano ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Words are not enough to express how beautiful this property is. It was far beyond our expectations. The owners, Gabriele and Lucia, and their staff are there to ensure everything about your experience is perfect. We were a group,of 5 couples for one week and 6 for the second week and everyone had excellent accommodations. We cooked in the very well appointed kitchen, enjoyed both the beautifully landscaped garden offering a splendid view of San Gimignano and the beautifully decorated interior. Unfortunately it was a little too cool to enjoy the pool. The location is well situated for visiting many of the wonderful towns and scenic vistas of Tuscany. We have no reservations in recommending this villa.

“Tuscan holiday of a life time” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with our kids and grandkids at Villa Iris. We couldn't have chosen a better spot. We were warmly welcomed by the owner and his wife who quickly made us feel at home. The welcoming buffet was much appreciated after a long overnight trip. In no time, thekids were in the pool, the adults sitting with a glass of wine. The villa and grounds more than met our expectations. The villa was spotless, the rooms spacious and each one unique, the grounds and pool well maintained. We were close enough to the many towns that make Tuscany so special that day trips were easy but we' were still able to 'go home' for a swim and a light meal. We took advantage of the offer of a authentic Tuscan meal prepared on site by the wife of the owner. Platters of antipasto, homemade pastas, steak florentine cooked on a wood burning barbecue served el fresco under the Tuscan sun. Perfect!

Villa Iris absolutely spectacular ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

How can I possibly begin to describe this amazing little haven in Tuscany that they call Villa Iris, nestled comfortably in the countryside with breathtaking views and from afar you see the towers of San Gimignano!

We were at Villa Iris for one week and it was absolutely amazing! Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! So peaceful, so comfortable, and there's nothing more that you could possibly want while you are there! Everything about it is lovely and all the little details that you see have been nurtured with such care. The love and pride that Gabriele has put into renovating this spectacular villa, is remarkable. The grounds are immaculate and manicured so nicely. A true pleasure to be in this home away from home!! My only regret is that we didn't have more time to enjoy the property, because we were always on the go!

Our hosts, Gabriele and Lucia couldn't be any nicer than what they were! They were so delightful and made us feel right at home! Very lovely and caring hosts. Lucia gave us a cooking lesson one evening, and it was a real Italian feast! There was enough food to feed 6 of us for two meals! So delicious!!!!!!

Our week in Villa Iris was one that we will never forget, and I came away with a very special feeling and love for Tuscany! The best!

Villa Iris ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

From the moment we drove in the majestic gates, everything about Villa Iris in Tuscany has been total luxury. The interior of the six-bedroom Villa is amazing – there is absolutely everything we need plus a lot more, all brand new and working, to enjoy what must be one of the most scenic parts of Tuscany. San Gimignano is just up on the hill, our breakfast view each morning from around the beautiful blue pool of the Villa. The quiet garden, with birds and the odd frog, complements the outdoor setting and lounges, and yesterday from the balcony we watched our neighbour harvest his entire paddock of grapes with the pickers in speaking range.

Idyllic? Absolutely. The phrase used by one of our party was “exceeds expectations!”

What else can we say about the Villa? The meals provided (on request) by co-owner Lucia, an accomplished former restaurateur in Firenze, are Tuscan perfection. And the level of maintenance and cleanliness in the Villa during our stay has been perfect (thanks to owner Gabriele’s eye for detail, and Irida’s servicing of the Villa).

It was the unique olive-green beauty of this particular little pocket of Tuscany that attracted us to discover Villa Iris. The medieval towns of San Gimignano (walking distance), Volterra (short drive), Siena and Lucca are all close by. And we are in the heart of Tuscan vineyards and wineries. Heaven on earth? It would be difficult to argue that one.

On Saturday we return to Australia, after watching the AFL grand final here in the Villa. Autumn colours have just started and we will return to Australian spring and summer. But we will definitely plan to be back to this special Villa in our magic patch of Tuscany.

The Perfect Getaway In attesa ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We spent two weeks at Villa Iris constantly reassuring ourselves that we weren't in a dream. It was perfect in every sense. Gabriele and Lucia, the owners, were simply wonderful and that extended down through their entire staff. The property is perfect for a group of 10 or 12 and I don't believe you can find a more beautiful and better maintained villa in all of Tuscany. While fairly close to San Gimignano, it is very quiet and peaceful. It is centrally located making it easy to visit anywhere in Tuscany on a day trip. Be sure to have Lucia cook dinner for you at least once. You won't find a better meal anywhere. Love them and loved the villa!

Fantastic family holiday in Tuscany ★ ★ ★ ★ ★


Villa Iris was the perfect base for our family visit to Tuscany. With ages ranging from 2 years to 69 years - the Villa had something for everyone. It is spacious and decorated to a high standard. Set within magical views of San Gimignano, you are based in the heart of the beautiful Tuscan landscape. Lucia is a great hostess and made us feel very welcome. We highly recommend asking her to cook for you - her BBQ is fantastic. We spent our days either relaxing at the Villa - the pool area and grounds are very luxurious, or visiting the local areas. You really can't go wrong with this place- with fabulous wine and food, it was the perfect Tuscan holiday. Only other tip - take mosquito spray! The Solomarks Family.

struturação incrível! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

struturação incrível! Villa in Chianti simplesmente mágica! A localização é perfeita! (San Gimignano)

A nossa estadia em Villa Iris foi magnífica! Após uma busca minuciosa na internet, e eu quero dizer uma pesquisa exaustiva, logo coloquei meus olhos em um lugar fascinante e charmoso chamado Villa Iris (www.villairistuscany.com).

Temos viajado o mundo e se hospedado em muitos hotéis bonitos, mas este está no topo da lista. As fotos não estão a demonstraram a beleza deste lugar magnífico e renovado AD HOC ... moderno e elegante onde o atual e antigo se unem e se distribuem perfeitamente.

Os jardins oferecem uma vista como o que você vê em cartões postais da Toscana, colinas pontilhadas com oliveiras e vinhedos e as torres de San Gimignano que parece tocá-las por estarem assim tão perto .
Eu nem consigo descrever o quão incrível é esta Villa, e como incrivelmente útil, acolhedor, simpático e amáveis foram os proprietários conosco ... Foi realmente difícil vir embora .


Tivemos a sorte de encontrar este lugar magico e usar como base para nossas visitas ao Chianti . Após um longos dia de passeios e caminhadas não víamos a hora de retornar para tranquilidade da a Villa Iris .

Ela se encontra muito perto do' auto-estrada e de outras cidades como Florença, Siena, Volterra e San Gimingnano onde podemos ir á pé caminhando uns 30 minutos através de belas paisagens ...
Nos demos uma olhada em hotéis de 5 estrelas de luxo, Cantinas , em Florença, Chianti, Montalcino e Val d'Orcia ... ..e cada vez que voltamos ao nosso belo oásis, lá ... compartilhar este lugar maravilhoso com nossos parentes e amigos e vizinhos foi um sonho!
Gabriele e Lucia realmente fizeram tudo que podiam para tornar a nossa estadia tão incrivelmente confortável ... com muita experiência ...... Nos indicaram restaurantes e locais que de outra forma não teríamos encontrado; Muito atenciosos quando saíamos antes de voltarmos eles já tinham abastecido a casa com tudo o que precisávamos .

Lucia que é uma grande cozinheira preparava inesquecíveis e saborosos jantares para nós, e que vamos se lembrar por toda a vida. Nos gostamos tanto destas férias que já entramos de acordo e reservamos duas semanas para o próximo ano .Onde faremos muito mais coisas e já estamos ansiosos.

Our family had a wonderful vacation. Gabrielle and Lucia are so nice and the best hosts. They are always available for anything you might need and willing to provide help in getting to local places. The villa is absolutely beautiful! Perfect for family gatherings or other groups. Everything is brand new, very clean and of the highest quality. The location is great as it is close to so many places. Lucia is such a wonderful cook and hostess. It is such a treat to have her prepare dinner. She accommodated our food allergies and cooked separate gluten-free meals. We are hoping to be back soon. It was a perfect vacation!

Exquisite ★ ★ ★ ★ ★


Villa Iris is a stunning, perfectly located and immaculately maintained villa nestled in the Tuscan hills. It is very spacious, tastefully decorated and very well-appointed. The owners have left nothing to chance and everything you could possibly require has been catered for. The gardens are vast and there is a far larger than average swimming pool with ample sunbeds and large umbrellas. The villa is very secure, well-lit, with ample off-street parking. The villa is approx 10 mins from San Gimignano, one hour from Florence and 30 mins from Siena, all very straight forward routes. I cannot recommend highly enough.

Extraordinary Villa Delights Entire Family ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Our 9-member family had an unforgettable visit in May 2015. We booked Villa Iris as our first villa stay in Italy based largely on the description and villa photos on its website. Rarely in life does the actual experience exceed one’s expectation, but this proved to be the case with Villa Iris. The villa and setting in the Tuscan countryside were magnificent and owners, Gabriele and Lucia, made sure we had an enjoyable and hassle-free stay. They were extremely responsive to our needs. We were three generations who took full advantage of the beautiful pool, cooking facilities, expansive property and recreational resources. Each day we found ourselves giggling in delight at the villa. The image of my first morning stands out as I recall opening the window in my bedroom to the sound of a rooster crowing and seeing the meticulously maintained yard, swimming pool and vernaccia vineyards surrounding the villa. The location near San Gimignano is a real advantage and Siena is a short drive. We visited regional markets to purchase fresh produce, fruit and food for a few memorable group dinners enjoyed at the outside (under protection) dining table while we watched the sunset behind San Gimignano. We have plans to return to extend our lovefest with Villa Iris.

Fantastic week at Villa Iris ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We had a wonderful week in sun-drenched Tuscany. The accommodation -Tenuta Melograni - exceeded our expectations. A beautiful villa with a wonderful kitchen and impeccable outdoor space. The pool area among the nicest we have seen. Tenuta Melograni is so warm and inviting, we chose to dine in most evenings, although we did find two great winery-based restaurants within easy walking distance. The owners, Gabriele and Lucia, were very friendly and attentive, a great holiday. We'll definitely return.

Gabriele and Lucia have lovingly brought this amazing property back to life in the most modern and Italian style. Their impeccable taste emanates throughout the interior and exterior of Villa Iris and every inch of the property is meticulously cared for.
Lucia is without a doubt the greatest cook in all of Italy and freely shares her talents with guests upon request. Her dinners were one of the highlights of the entire trip. 
Villa Iris is conveniently located in San Gimignano and is convenient to travel to villages all over Tuscany including Florence, Poggibansi and Chianti. Day trips are easy to do from this location and returning to Lucia's meals are truly living well.
We wish Gabriele and Lucia continued success and know that this new property of theirs will be a favorite spot for many travelers for decades to come.
