All these destinations and many more are easily reachable in a daytrip from the villa.

The Villa was an absolute delight. So well kept in every way. The grounds were gorgeous. The view was amazing. Every room in the villa has such personality. So much room , we had 16 people & were more than comfortable. The little town was only a mile away which was so convenient. I would recommend this place to anyone & everyone. Can't wait to go back & can't imagine staying anywhere else.

Vacation -beyond our dreams !!
Vacation -beyond our dreams !!
I can not give enough praise for this Villa. The grounds and the Villa were spotless . Look at the pictures and add much more beauty and elegance to them -- we were speechless when we got there-- everything was up to and way beyond our hopes !! I can't list all the great features of the house and grounds & town-- it would take way too long--Just know it is well beyond what you can imagine !! We spent 3 wks. with spouses,children, grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren and it was wonderful !! Plenty of room and the pool was perfect. Jacopo was very helpful to us and we had him cook 2 evening meals for us and they were wonderful !! Can't say enough good things about the Villa and the staff-and we had plenty if privacy. BUT I CAN TELL YOU THAT YOU WON'T HAVE A NICER VACATION--THAT I PROMISE !!

Dreams come true!
Dreams come true!
For so long I had a dream of a vacation at an Italian villa. Our vacation was far better than any dream. My husband and I and 4 other couples had the most wonderful two weeks at Podere Baiocco. We wanted a place within walking distance to a village and within a reasonable distance to hill towns. The villa was this and so much more. The villa is lovely inside and out, the house large enough for 10, spotlessly clean and although large , has a warm feeling that feels like home immediately upon entering. The grounds are just beautiful, flowers, plantings, cypress and olive tress all lovingly cared for by the owner. The village of Citta Della Pieve is a 15 minute walk from the villa and reflects the same warm and welcoming feeling, it's residents and shop owners courteous and friendly. We traveled to many enchanting hill towns in Tuscany and Umbria but we were always glad to come home to the villa and the village. Thank you for helping dreams come true.

WE TRAVELLED WITH 4 OTHER COUPLES TO THIS VILLA. WE FOUND IT TO BE VERY WELL APPOINTED AND VERY VERY SPACIOUS. LOTS OF OUTDOOR EATING AND SITTING AREAS AND A LARGE DINING ROOM INSIDE. THE GROUNDS ARE VERY WELL KEPT AND THE POOL WAS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION ( ALTHOUGH COOL THIS TIME OF YEAR). I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS VILLA VERY HIGHLY. THERE WERE 2 FELLAS TO CONTACT IF WE NEEDED ANYTHING AT ALL AND WERE VERY HELPFUL UPON CHECKING IN TO GIVE DETAILS ON RESTAURANTS IN THE VILLAGE. ALL OF OUR QUESTIONS WERE ANSWERED BEFORE WE EVEN ARRIVED AND A DRIVER WAS ARRANGED FOR US UPON OUR REQUEST. IF YOU REQUIRE A LARGE VILLA AND WANT TO BE WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF A VERY QUAINT TOWN WITH SHOPPING AND RESTAURANTS....LOOK NO FURTHER, YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU STAYED AT THIS BEAUTIFUL VILLA.

Fabulous Tuscan Holiday
Fabulous Tuscan Holiday
We recently had the pleasure of staying at this fantastic villa. There were 5 couples staying for 2 weeks. The villa exceeded all our expectations. It was spotlessly clean, very roomy and had every creature comfort one could hope for. The grounds and pool were tended to in a quiet and non-intrusive way every day by Jacopo. We especially liked the many outdoor patio areas one could escape to for a little quiet time. The pool, with its wonderful views and shaded area, presented a welcome relief after a busy day of sight seeing. The villa is situated with-in an easy driving distance to many of the various sights offered in Tuscany. Citta della Pieve was only a 20 minute walk away. This was as charming a village as one could hope. The people were very friendly and helpful and the nearby restaurants, gelato shops and pastry shops were all enjoyed on many occasions. I highly recommend this villa for those looking for a beautiful, relaxing, spacious villa in a great area. I know we’ll be back one day. Jacopo- thanks for memories that will last all of us a lifetime and to us that’s what travelling is all about.

Our dream vacation in Tuscany
Our dream vacation in Tuscany
This villa is what you imagine when you think of a Tuscany vacation! A spacious & charming home in an absolutely gorgeous setting, with hillside views, a pool, outdoor seating and a wonderful owner Jacopo :). Within walking distance to a lovely historic walled village Citta Della Pieve- a true Italian town (beautiful but not touristy) where we felt welcomed and also enjoyed some delicious meals and gelato! We were a family of 10 ranging in age from 16 mos (our grandson) into our 50s. The Villa is ideal for family's or groups with its 7 spacious bedrooms & 7 baths and huge dining room, all meticulously kept by Jacopo. Both Jacopo and Sebastien (who speaks English) greeted us, settled us in and made us feel welcomed & at home from the moment we got there. They gave us restaurant suggestions, made reservations for us and were just a phone call away if we needed anything. We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather so we enjoyed eating outdoors and although it was too cold to swim we still loved relaxing around the pool-the setting & views are gorgeous! It was the perfect home base to explore the surrounding area (loved Sienna, Orvieta, Montelpulciano but our favorite was Pienza). The close proximity to the train station is a huge plus. We spent a few days in Rome before arriving by train, took a day trip by train to Florence and then a few of our group took the train to Venice for an overnight trip. Coming home to this peaceful retreat at the end of the day was perfection and we highly recommend it to anyone considering a visit to Italy!

What a wonderful time we had in Italy! Our entire family, all 15 of us, spent a week at the beautiful villa. It was much more than we expected. We had plenty of room and enjoyed the big kitchen, dining room and patio. Breakfast on the patio was a special way to start the day, then we could venture out for our day trips or just stay at the villa and relax or go into Citta della Pieve, such a charming town with friendly people. We had a delicious authentic Italian meal prepared by Jacopo on Thursday night, and he served the best tiramisu ever! All in all, everyone had a fabulous time. We would recommend this villa to anyone that has a big group or family.

Six couples from our town stayed in both the large and small villa for a week and it was a fabulous experience. We all had enough privacy, big private bedrooms and bathrooms. The beds were comfortable and the villas were quiet. The grounds and pools are gorgeous. We loved it!

The villa was wonderful! Very spacious and much more than we ever expected in amenities. It was a great beginning to our trip since it allowed us to become familiar w/Italian street signs, customs, etc in such a pleasant and relaxed way. We(4 couples were provided such a warm welcome by the caretakers. Pieve was such a delightful city. Location of villa was perfect for day trips by car or public transportation. Although the town has much to offer I would recommend a car since there were so many wonderful towns nearby. Had a wonderful experience as we were looking for the narrowest street in Pieve. Had just purchased a postcard of it and would ask directions by pointing to the postcard since I spoke no Italian. A woman, named Maria, who spoke no English, was sitting outside her house, eating grapes and when asked where the street was she told us she would take us there (many hand signals and gestures). Tried to explain she did not have to do this but she insisted. As we neared the street the rest of our group was coming toward us, Maria had also taken them there without our knowing it! On our way back to the villa we all had our picture taken with her! This moment of kindness will be one of our many treasured memories.

The villa was magical! It is in such a beautiful setting. It was perfect for 8 people. The surrounding towns were quaint and very convenient. The food, the wine, and the restaurants were fabulous. The location is very central to many towns in Tuscany and Umbria along with the train being so close making it easy to go to Florence, Rome, and Venice. It was a wonderful experience!
