About Federica Giacobbi
I'm Federica, the owner of Antico Podere Marciano. I am Tuscan but did not grow up in this area. Since I was a little girl I have been dreaming of speaking various foreign languages, travelling, and working in the tourist sector. I have been studying simultaneous interpreting with English, German, and French and travelling quite a lot during the time I was attending university before getting the degree. After, that, I have been working for a couple of year as interpreter and translator in a big company near Bologna, meanwhile my dream of working in the tourist sector was still there...In 2003, my family and I decided to look for a nice place in the Chianti area to set up a B&B/self-catering villa. I saw various different places, before seeing Marciano..it was love at first sight...we therefore bought the property and undertook a very intense and radical restoration job, which lasted for about a year. In August 2004, I opened the place to the public..I had no previous experience in managing a small hotel and I must admit it took a while to understand not only the front office job, but also what lays behind it..Ten years after the beginning of this 'adventure' I must say I am very pleased of my job and feel very happy sharing my beautiful property with people coming form all over the world, while being helpful to them.
Federica Giacobbi purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Federica Giacobbi chose Barberino Val D'elsa
I chose Marciano, simply because its absolutely fantastic, the view, the lights, the surrounding quiet, the perfumes of the garden, and..its highlight..sunsets!!!

Fabulous location for a vacation with friends!
As a group of 6 couples we spent a week at Antico Podere Marciano last month. The villa was beautiful and the hosts wonderful. Everything is exactly as in the photos - the layout has allowed for privacy for all couples and the views from the grounds are stunning. We spent many afternoons cooling down in the pool and evenings enjoying Federica and her staff's cooking, which was amazing. We highly recommend this gem in Tuscany, we would return in a heartbeat!
