About Jacopo Baiocco
Let me introduce myself. My name is Jacopo Baiocco, I'm 32 and I've been renting my villas for over a decade. After I became a father at age 20 I decided to leave my job as a bartender and throw myself in this new adventure. At the beginning it was certainly hard, as I was trying to rent my properties through agencies, but in 2009 I decided to try a more personal approach and started working with HomeAway. Thanks to my guests word of mouth my villas are always full of new clients and, as I'd like to consider, friends. After two years of hard work I'm happy to announce that our brand new Villa Febea is available for rent. I cured every aspect and detail of its restoration and I hope you love it just as much I do. As always, I check every property before my guests arrival, and you could easily find me serving you breakfast or cooking you dinner during your stay. My carefully selected staff and I are always available for our guests. We hope to have you here with us soon, Jacopo

Wonderful family stay at Villa Baiocco
Our group of 10 family members had a fabulous week at Villa Baiocco. We looked forward to this trip for over a year, and it exceeded our expectations. The villa was very comfortable for our large group. The meals prepared by the staff (Welcome dinner and Tuscan dinner) were absolutely fantastic! We also participated in the cooking class, which was a lot of fun. After being served the pasta that we made, we were shocked to find that there was yet another course to be served! The villa is a 15 minute walk from Citta della Pieve, which is an absolutely beautiful medieval town. We rented a car for a few days (easily arranged with Hertz in nearby Chiusi) and did day trips to Florence, Sienna, Assisi and Lucca/Pisa. We also took advantage of the day trips offered by the villa. The tour of Montepulciano wine/olive oil/Pecorino cheese was the highlight of the week. We used the transfer to the Rome airport arranged by Jacopo, and it made the trip to the airport very easy. Just can't say enough about this beautiful place in a stunning part of Italy. All the rave reviews are to be believed!
Fantastic experience at Podere Biaocco
My wife, kids, and my wife's Italian-American family stayed in this VRBO in April 2018, for one week. We found the property on the VRBO website, and were impressed with the high number of positive reviews.
There are a number of great things about this property. For one, the owner, Jacopo, is a perfect host. We communicated with him with countless questions before our arrival, and he always got back to us within 24 hours. Upon arrival, Jacopo was very pleasant and again always available to help, but not at all overbearing (he lives about 15 minutes away, he told me).
The location of the villa is ideal. The town of Citta Della Pieve is quaint and small but has a number of good restaurants and a grocery store, and is walking distance from the villa. The villa is on the outskirts of Citta Della Pieve, and is very private. It's about a 15 minute drive to Chiusi, where the closest train station and car rental agency are. In the week we stayed in this villa, we drove from Rome in under 2 hours; to Florence in 1.5 hours; to Pisa and Lucca in 2.5 hours; and to Siena in about 1 hour. The driving in Rome was somewhat challenging, but easy around Umbria and Tuscany (we used iphone navigation).
The villa itself is gorgeous and authentic. It was spotless when we arrived. It was chilly in April, and one of our favorite memories is gathering around the fireplace in the main room (Jacopo supplied a large amount of firewood for free). We were easily able to accommodate 10 adults and 2 children in this villa.
I appreciated the fact that Jacopo was very up front about costs. There is a limited supply of items for sale in the villa - wine, water, beer, extra toilet paper, as well as some branded sweatshirts and other swag. We did not use any gas for heating while there, but there is a potential charge for that. We had Jacopo's team prepare several meals (daily breakfast, as well as a cooking class, a welcome dinner, and the Tuscan dinner) - all were delicious and an excellent value.
Jacopo arranged for our group a wine/cheese/olive oil tour, which everyone loved; he also set up an airport transfer, which worked out perfectly.
The only downsides I can think of for this villa are that several of us felt the pillows were too thin, and the mattresses thin/soft. Really this was an ideal vacation home for our family, and we would return in a heartbeat. Several in our group were nervous about renting a home in Italy, and Jacopo made it go flawlessly!
Memorable great stay at Villa & Casa Baiocco
Our stay at Villa Baiocco was a very memorable experience. From our arranged transfer from Chiusi train station to the Villa (approx. 15-minute scenic drive), our host Jacopo was ready to greet us at the villa and casa and give us a tour of the property. Everything at Villa Baiocco is well-organized and convenient (such as wine to pruchase on site, laundry facilities, full kitchen, etc.) and the location is stunning. We chose to go with the Welcome Dinner at the Villa on our arrival night which was a good decision. We had great weather at the end of March with sunny skies and temperatures near 20 degrees C. The accommodation was clean with large bedrooms (all with bath and/or shower) and everything was in top working order. Our group was 17 people from Canada and the UK so we choose to rent the villa and casa located next to the villa on the same property. Jacopo was very helpful thoughout our stay, booking dinner reservations at Bruno's restaurant (very good place!) in nearby Citta della Pieve (a 1km walk from the villa). I was also interested in playing tennis on the clay in Italy and Jacopo arranged this for me as well at a tennis club in the town of Chiusi. From the villa, we took day trips to Orvieto and Montepulciano but a lot of our time we spent in the nearby town as Citta della Pieve as it was so scenic and a great place to relax with a glass of wine. We particulary liked Bar Pippa in the town and visited there for lunch and drinks before dining at Bruno's. For photographers, the Citta della Pieve is fantastic with it's narrow winding streets and scenic photo opportunities on nearly every corner. Jacopo was also available to book any day tours and arrange transportation for us if our group was interested. It was the perfect venue to celebrate a 50th birthday and we have long lasting memories. I highly recommend a stay in this beautiful part of Italy at Jacopo’s Villa.
The trip started out a bit rough as half of our group had their flights canceled. Being that we were at less than 30 days, we couldn't cancel the guest house or 8th bedroom. Admittedly, that put a damper on things. But Jacopo went above and beyond in making our stay the best in could be, including giving us a credit for an extra night for those who flew in a flew days late. The food was excellent, the town nearby was charming, and the house was warm and comfortable. The best part was the host though, as Jacopo really went above and beyond to arrange taxi rides, tours, and cooking lessons for our group. Thanks Jacopo!
Thank You Adam :-)
A most memorable two weeks in Tuscany!
The villa at Città della Pieve was beyond our expectations. We planned on spending Christmas and New Year's with our family in Tuscany to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and Jacopo's place was perfect, with enough rooms to accommodate our party of 14 very comfortably. The entire house was very well furnished in typical Tuscan style up to the last detail. Everything was as described and more. Jacopo was a gracious host, and in constant touch with us on the day of our arrival. He and Angela met us at the villa when we arrived to explain all the facilities, appliances and everything we needed to know about the villa. All of us immediately fell in love with the place. During our two-week stay, Jacopo would respond immediately as he lived just 15 minutes away. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and relatives. It's a dream villa. We also loved visiting the town Citta della Pieve which was just ten minutes away. It had many interesting little shops, good restaurants and a supermercato which had everything we needed during our stay. Our family had a most enjoyable and memorable stay at the villa.
Thank You Sylvia!!!
Ideal vacation home in the hills of Umbria!
An awesome home with all the amenities your could ever want - spacious with many options to enjoy time with your family/guests inside and outside the home. Wonderful kitchen with everything you need to cook a full dinner, or better yet, use the services of the owner's staff and have them cook it for you! Views are outstanding. The villa is in a small, quaint hilltop town with great restaurants and stores with local products. This was our second time and we will be returning. The owner, Jacopo is helpful and gracious - he is engaged and willing to assist as needed. Just a great place to enjoy the beauty of Tuscany at a very affordable price.
Take part in the traditional 'Palio dei Terzieri', a Renaissance spectacle.
