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 Baiocco purchased this villa in 1998

Spectacular Villa/Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

Looking for the perfect villa in Umbria or Tuscany that can accommodate a large group? Look no further. Villa Baiocco, along with Casa Baiocco, is the perfect place to spend a couple or more weeks exploring the beautiful countryside. The villa, with it's old-world charm, has 7 bedrooms- all ensuite. It's been restored to perfection with a large dining room and a large modern kitchen- with all the conveniences. The newer casa has 3 ensuite bedrooms. Both the villa and the casa are sparkling clean throughout.

We took advantage of both the welcoming dinner and the traditional Tuscan meal. I can recommend both highly. Plenty of great food and wine at a very fair price. The gnocchi was exceptional!

With two swimming pools and plenty of places to sit and socialize, one can choose to relax all day and enjoy the incredible views or wander into the nearby medieval village of Citta della Pieve. The village is one of the most charming in the area with numerous restaurants, bars, well-stocked grocery stores, a pharmacy and a liquor store. We had our morning cappucini and cornetto at the "Jolly" where we were warmly greeted each day. We often ventured into town later for dinner and of course, our daily dose of gelato.

Planning the trip was easy due to Jacopo, the owner. Email after email, question after question, all were answered quickly and patiently. Jacopo arranged transportation by bus to the villa from Rome where we had been staying as well as arranging our return trip to the airport. Everyday he arrived early to clean the pools and to make sure everything was tidy and working properly. The grounds are immaculate and carefully cared for. Jacopo takes great pride in making sure everything is meticulous.

The location of the villa allowed us to visit many of the well-known cultural sites of the Tuscan/Umbrian region. With our almost daily trips, we visited Florence and Siena by train (an easy 1.5 hr ride) and many other lovely villages by car including Montalcino, Todi, Cortona, Pienza, Montelpulciano, Lake Trasimeno - and a group also took advantage of one of Jacopo's tours to Assissi-which they claimed to be one of the best days of the two weeks.

Our group has stayed in a dozen different villas in Europe, but we all feel that Villa Baiocco is something special. If you're looking for a fabulous villa with a perfect location, and enjoy being in Italy, this is the perfect place. Thank you, Jacopo!

Outstandingly beautiful house and setting!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 adults and 6 boys (10-18) just spent a week at Villa Baiocco. We all had a fabulous time. The villa is beautiful, large, very well equipped, with a big pool, air conditioned comfortable bedrooms, and many patios looking out to beautiful grounds and rolling fields. Our charming host, Jacopo, takes excellent care of the property and his guests. He has extensive knowledge of the area and was very helpful with sightseeing/restaurant suggestions and any other questions we had. The villa is within walking distance of Citta Della Pieve, a charming old hill town with shops, grocery, restaurants, bars, views etc. Villa Baiocco is a great home base for exploring Umbria and Tuscany. Everyone from 10 to 79 loved our stay and would love to come back again. The whole week was magical!!!

Best location, lots of room, fantastic service and travel guidance!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second trip to this villa. The location is great and walking distance to town. Every room has its own bathroom and there is lots of privacy for everyone. The pool and the Tuscan views are just refreshing and spectacular. We always enjoy coming to the villa. Train station is so convenient and nearby for day trips to Rome or Florence. And best of all Jacopo is a gracious and responsive host. We love the Tuscan dinners in the villa Great time to come together as a group and catch up on each persons daily adventure. What fun! Miss it already! You will love this magical place!

The meals that we purchased were wonderful. The pool was great and we took advantage of it. The grounds are lovely and well taken care of. If we ever go back to Italy we would stay here again. They treated us like family.

Our Wonderful Family Celebration in Italy

  • 5 of 5

In June 2017 our family gathered to help me celebrate my 70th birthday at the Baiocco Villa on the outskirts of Citta della Pieve. It was a most wonderful, magical trip. We had 14 in our party ranging in age from 5 to 70. The villa was perfect. It was wonderfully comfortable for all of us with beautiful grounds. The swimming pool was a great hit on the days we weren't taking tours. We ate outside everyday on the covered porch off the kitchen. The cooking class we had at the villa was so much fun. Even our 5-year old Rocco really got into making the pici (pasta) for our dinner. The welcome dinner and Tuscany dinners were delicious! The tours arranged with Jacopo's help were wonderful trips to experience different foods, wines, and history of Italy - what a beautiful country!

We did not have any vehicles, but found it very easy (and good exercise) to walk into town almost every day to explore, pick up some groceries, have a meal, or just enjoy a gelato.

Jacopo was a wonderful host. He answered our questions and was so accommodating and easy to work with (and he had such a beautiful smile). Angela who introduced us to the villa was so sweet and helpful. It was a treat to run into her in town where she helped us at the Post Office and she introduced us to her American neighbor, Shawn (whom we later ran into and had lunch with). We felt right at home.

This was a truly memorable vacation. We all loved the villa, Citta, and Italy. We would love to return some day. We highly recommend the villa to anyone wanting to visit Italy!

Tuscany at it's best!

  • 5 of 5

The property is very clean, the rooms well-furnished, and the gardens & pool well-maintained. This is a beautiful and ideal property for anyone wanting to visit the many castletowns in Tuscany and Umbria, like Montepulciano, Cortona, Pienza, Montalcino, Assisi, Orvieto and the many natural thermal waters or just hang out and enjoy this country estate and pool! The owner is nearby and always helpful. There is also a lovely little town within walking distance from the Villa where there are several good local restaurants, pizzerias, a grocery store and a pharmacy. In other words, it's location, location, location! We have rented a different Villa in Tuscany and/or Umbria every year for the past twenty years and this one is really outstanding. No one should hesitate to book their stay in this one!
