Villa Iris 2

Val d'Orcia (Siena) - Tuscany

A really extraordinary villa built on the XV century surrounded by one of the most beautiful garden of Tuscany set in the heart of the Val d'Orcia. The Villa is built on three levels and is full of old-world charm with beautiful antique furniture and all the modern comforts. A lovely pergola is the ideal place to enjoy your meals and relaxing in the shade of roses and wisteria lulled by the sound of water on the fountain nearby.


The real jewel of this property is the garden: from the Italian garden, divided into geometrical spaces by box hedges, lemon trees in terracotta pots and passageways covered in wysteria and climbing roses, paths lead into an informal meditteranean garden with pine trees, cypresses, broom, thyme and lavender.


Three gardeners look after the premises, including the swimming pool opposite the "limonaia". Two full time maids (including a local cook) and an extra daily help take care of the house and its guests.


The garden is open to the public on Wednesday afternoons from 3 to 7pm ( this is a requisite of most "Heritage" houses and gardens in Italy), visitors are taken on strictly guided tours.
