We had a terrific stay at Villa Iris this september 2016. Everything was up to our expectations. We were 4 canadian couples even if there is enough room for 6. We took the diner cooking service which was excellent, great food, great service, everything fine. I strongly recommend Villa Iris as well as the home cooking. A lot of things to do in the immediate surroundings (San Giminiano, Sienna, Florence, Chianti, wineries, etc.)
Our host, Gabriel was waiting for us on arrival with a much -needed welcome buffet. Everything was explained. It all worked and we were so glad to be there. Warren.
We had a fabulous time at Villa Iris! The property and grounds are immaculate, the views are outstanding, and the owners are very friendly. We stayed at the house with 3 generations of people, including my parents and my two small children. We all had an amazing time, and can't wait to go back!
The location was excellent and the grounds and house were very well maintained and perfect for our group of 12. The owner was very responsive to any questions or requests we made. We would definitely recommend Villa Iris to others, and would stay here again.
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!!
Words are not enough to express how beautiful this property is. It was far beyond our expectations. The owners 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 outside and inside . Unfortunately it was a little to cool to enjoy the pool. The location is well situated for visiting many of the wonderful towns and vistas of Tuscany. We have no reservations in recommending this villa.
