Dimora Iris sits within a vast estate that's surrounded by vineyards and rolling Tuscan countryside, with cities such as Florence, Pisa and Siena all easily reached for days out. Enjoy long walks, hikes and bike rides in the area immediately around the estate to discover this part of Tuscany's stunning natural beauty.

And you don't even need to leave the estate to appreciate total peace and tranquillity, with gardens, ancient structures, vineyards and olive groves found across 150 hectares. You also have your own extensive gardens in which to relax, socialise and dine.

This historic and impressive villa sleeps up to 19 people in 9 en-suite bedrooms that all offer views across the garden and over the surrounding countryside and one single room with french bed. They feature a mix of elegant antique pieces of furniture, original features and modern comforts for unique spaces to enjoy a restful night's sleep. Touches such as Carrara marble in the single bedroom's en-suite bathroom are additionally luxurious.

Heritage and tradition are especially showcased on the ground floor of two-level Dimora Iris. A series of beautifully furnished living, dining and leisure rooms offer both laid-back and formal spaces to soak up the villa's rich atmosphere. Before eating meals at the grand dining table or in the old hunting hall, unwind on a sumptuous sofa and play a game or two of pool.

Switching off and recharging your batteries is easy with the amount of idyllic outside space on offer. Take a refreshing dip in the large swimming pool or simply lie back on a pool-side lounger with your favourite drink. Strolling around the lush, lawned gardens is the perfect way to work up an appetite before lunch or dinner under the shady cover of the pretty loggia.

Additional activities that can be arranged upon request at Dimora Iris and beyond include cooking classes, truffle hunting and wine tasting. Much produce comes from the estate itself, as it has large organic vegetable and fruit gardens, with freshly laid eggs from the resident chickens.

There are plenty of fascinating places for day trips in the area. One of the most picturesque is the walled medieval town of San Gimignano, which is around a 30-minute drive away. Also soak up centuries of history and culture in the cities of Siena, Florence and Pisa.

The coast is also around or just over an hour's drive from the villa. Relax on the beaches at Marina di Cecina and Marina di Pisa - which is also close to Natural Park Migliarino San Rossore.

Dimora Iris occupies an idyllic position in the heart of unspoilt Tuscan countryside, with nothing but vineyards and nature surrounding the expansive estate it sits within. Despite its secluded and private location, the nearest restaurant is just a short walk away. This makes it a joy to simply stroll out the villa in the evenings and be eating a delicious meal in no time. More restaurants, as well as shops, bars, and various other convenient amenities can be found within a 10-minute drive.

History lovers will be keen to visit San Gimignano, a walled medieval town around 30 minutes away from the villa by car. The walls date back to the 13th century, with one of San Gimignano's highlights being its old town. Also visit Torre Grossa and the 12th-century church Duomo di San Gimignano. Enjoy a gelato and refreshing drink before heading off on a scenic hike through the countryside surrounding the town.

The gorgeous city of Florence is a must-visit, as it's full of fascinating and historic landmarks, buildings and points of interest. Some of the key sights to tick off your list include the Uffizi Gallery with its Renaissance art, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, and the fortified 13th-century Palazzo Vecchio. The Accademia Gallery is home to Michelangelo’s iconic David.

Other great cities for days out include Pisa with its famous leaning tower and Siena. The latter is probably most-known for Piazza de Campo, which is home to the 13th-century city hall called Palazzo Pubblico. Also take in majestic views over the city from Torre del Mangia and explore Piazza del Duomo, where the cathedral and Piccolomini Library are to be found.

Lovely beaches are under a 90-minute drive from Dimora Iris. Those at Marina di Pisa and Marina di Cecina are great for an afternoon by the sea. Marina di Pisa is especially popular with families, as its pebble and sand beaches are sheltered by stone barriers and the waters are calm for swimming. Forte dei Marmi is famous among jet-setters whilst Castiglioncello is remarkable for hills that fall right down to the sea forming cliffs, little inlets, coves and sandy beaches.

Just over an hour's drive away is the iconic city of Florence and it offers much for the whole family on a day out. There are several fun yet educational museums to explore. These include the Leonardo da Vinci Museum, where children will love the interactive features and seeing reconstructions of some of da Vinci's engineering projects. Also worth a visit is Museo Galileo.

Parco delle Cacine sits just outside Florence city centre and offers a swimming pool, small play area and cafe. You can also enjoy walks and bike rides through the rambling park.
