“Villa Iris..... excellence, and a first class experience”

person found this review helpful

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.

“UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN”
Reviewed 8 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

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

“vacation”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed in Villa Iris in the month of July for two weeks with our family of 11 persons. After welcomed by the owners (Gabriele, Lucia and their daughter Carolina).they shown the Villa, it went beyond the expectations I can say in photographs is very nice but it's more beautiful being there ,this old house besides the beauty sorrounds in atmosphere of times,the owners managed to give their careful restoration. We were so excited during the holidays, the sunsets and views every day, living in this amazing structure,it was a big deal for us to go the excursions coz we wanted to stay as much as possible in Villa each of the six spacious bedrooms has its own bathroom.furnishings are amazing there is a large table in the dining room, unique for its typicality', and another large dining table under the portico where we eat dinners and breakfasts. The Villa has its own classic but different from others, its possible to find some details related to Tuscany with its unique character, we knew that it was designed by the owner Gabriel, being a painter he designed and renovated this old house customizing it with his creativity also his beautiful paintings displayed in Villa .The large kitchen equipped with all the latest electrical appliances.In the garden and pool with spa it can see the famous towers of San Gimignano, the Villa is in a perfect location for those who want to visit places recommended by tour guides, Siena, Florence, Pisa, and San Gimignano is 2 km away, and nearby cities on the path of Chianti). .To Sum up, this trip will be 'for all of us unforgettable' for its heavenly place, and also thanks to the hospitality of the owners, and the dinners prepared by the chef Lucia worth recommending this Villa to everyone who prefer to relax away from the hustle and bustle of big city and to feel Italian atmosphere in the luxurious conditions that are offered by Villa Iris.

“Perfect Tuscan Getaway down to every last detail”
Reviewed 29 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

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.

“A beautiful villa near San Gimignano”
Reviewed 6 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

A group of 12 friends and family stayed at Villa Iris in June 2016 for a week. The villa is perfect in every way. Spacious accommodation, well equipped bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms with a well appointed kitchen. Everything has been thought of that you would possibly need for a wonderful holiday.The outside space is incredible. We spent most of the week eating, drinking and playing outside! The new bocce court was especially popular as well as the table tennis and table football. I cannot recommend Villa Iris highly enough.
