Overview

About the property

Villa, 7 /10 Bedrooms + 8 / 12 Baths, (Sleeps 14/ 20)

Villa Baiocco is a typical Tuscan, historic farm house from 1700, recently converted to a prestigious holiday home - without losing its unique character and charm. Surrounded by 20'000m2 of well kept gardens, for your private use only, it offers all the peace and tranquility that you look for during your holidays. If you are looking for a place to truly relax - here you've found it.

Flexibility is the keyword at Podere Baiocco. The villa sleeps up to 14 people and if you wish we cater for them as well. Or perhaps you'd just want to be left alone, than we'll guarantee absolute privacy. Excursions, personal trainers, chefs - all can be organized, just let us know what your needs are.

All bedrooms have a bathroom en-suite. If you are traveling in a large group, there won't be any fights for the showers - an important aspect for relaxing holidays.

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

Jacopo Baiocco purchased this villa in 1998

Our amazing Italian adventure

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and wanted to share our adventure with family and friends. Villa Baiocco gave us that opportunity and exceeded our wildest dreams. The location provides some beautiful views and is within walking distance to town. The villa offers plenty of elbow room for its guests, and our group of ten fully enjoyed the spaciousness and the privacy. With Natasha doing the daily breakfast for everyone, it gave us the opportunity to leisurely prepare for the day. And when you do the Welcome dinner and the Tuscan dinner with them, it is a wonderful culinary treat! The tantalizing aromas foretell an absolutely delicious meal accompanied by some great wine.

Jacopo was an absolute jewel. Although we encountered some minor difficulties, he was able to take care of everything quickly, preventing any anxiety. Thank you, Jacopo, for helping to make our anniversary trip become the journey of a lifetime. I only regret that we only stayed a week with you. A month would have been much better. You will always occupy a special place in our hearts.

Beautiful stay at a wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We took the main building which is 8 bedrooms and it was for only 8 of us. The property was just at the outskirts of the town and a nice healthy walk into town which we did every night. The people in town were extremely nice and greeted us every night when we showed up for a night cap and/or gelato. This location was pivotal for everyone. Some of us had been to Italy before and wanted more out of the way places to go and others were here for the first time, so it was important to be able to get to Rome or Florence to see the more touristic sights. This was perfect for both. Jacopo (caretaker/owner) was always available for help and a very happy person to work with.

Located on the edge of town also put one on the edge of country living and the countryside was gorgeous, picturesque and serene. In town it was historic and everything you might expect in an outlying town in Italy. The villa had that same feel that it had been there for quite some time and yet while vintage, it was modernized with conveniences and extremely clean. In short, I couldn't stress the value and pleasures of staying here enough. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Everyone in our party felt the same way. The following year at our recommendation, a friend took their extended family to stay there, took both buildings and had an equally marvelous time.

Our Magical, Memorable Winter Trip 2016-17

  • 5 of 5

Villa Baiocco was fantastic. We spent 2 weeks over Christmas and New Years with extended family and this villa was perfect for our big group! We enjoyed their breakfasts they prepared, we took advantages of massages, rode bikes and relaxed by the fire. The dinners they prepared for us were delicious too! Jacopo and his team communicated everything clearly and made us feel like cherished guests for two amazing weeks.

This experience was an opportunity to immerse ourselves in a beautiful and quaint town. Yet we were very close to Assisi, Orvieto, Firenze, Montepulciano, and more! Though we loved hanging out in our own Città della Pieve, our most cherished times were truly the long, relaxed dinners when we could get caught up with family and share stories (over delicious Italian food and wine!!)

We can't recommend this villa highly enough!

Beautiful House with Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 14 (ages 2 to 86) stayed at Villa Baiocco the week of November 19. First of all the house is beautiful, especially the grounds, and the views are wonderful. My favorite part of the day was waking up in the morning and looking out the bedroom window at the Umbrian countryside. Jacopo and his staff were accomodating in every possible way. We had both the welcome dinner and the special dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday, and I recommend them highly. The breakfasts were not lavish, but a very good value, and made it much easier to hit the road in the morning. The local village of Citta della Pieve is lovely, and you must see the Perugino in the Oratorio di Santa Maria dei Bianchi. Also highly recommend the Cafe degli Artisti for a good glass of wine, some antipasto and watch the world go by. Our favorite day trips were wine tastings at Altesino near Montalcino and at Felsina near Castelnuovo Berardenga, plus visits to Orvieto and Cortona. Altesino and Felsina are small family owned wineries, not big corporations and they offer gracious hospitalty. (you need a reservation) The view from Cortona of the valley below was the best of the week. Overall, a wonderful week, and hope we can return.

***Memorable & Magical***

  • 5 of 5

Our week stay at the Villa this October was something straight out of a fairytale book.

From the early planning stages of our trip, Jacopo was there to help facilitate every step of the way...not only recommending the best day trips for our group (14) but also making sure we were taken care of throughout our stay with transportation, fun events, and food options and reservations the entire time!

Fall in Umbria is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen, and there is nothing lost on this amazing property by booking later in the year. Our short brisk morning walks into town were so magical and serene with new and hidden gems to discover with each visit.

Jacopo and staff were exceptional and on-call even into the wee hours of the morning and always with huge smiles on their faces. He is the quintessential example of hospitality.

If the stars ever align that I would be so lucky to find myself in Italy, I would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Thank you everyone for the most magical and memorable experience and for making my first trip to Italy absolutely perfect!

Best trip ever!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned to the US from a bucket list extended trip in Italy, most of which we were privileged to spend at Villa Biacco in Citta della Pieve. On the night we arrived (about 3 hours later than anticipated) the town and villa were a welcome site to weary travelers. But waking up to exploring the villa and grounds made us went to pinch ourselves to be sure we weren’t dreaming. It exceeded all expectations. My husband and I and close friends had rented the villa over 3 years ago and had invited many of our friends and family to join us over the course of the month. Having 7 bedrooms, each with its own bath, made sleeping arrangements easy and the huge kitchen and dining areas – both inside and out – made our happy hours and occasional meals in the villa a perfect place to share events of the day. I would also recommend sampling at least one meal made by the villa staff. The gnocchi with sausage in truffle sauce made me want to throw away all etiquette and lick my plate. And Jacopo’s tiramisu was like eating a delicious cloud. Jacopo is the perfect host – there whenever you needed him, but also made us feel like the villa was our home for the month. Lastly I cannot say enough about the ease of having Jacopo’s car service at our disposal. Several brave souls rented cars, but not wanting to navigate the windy smaller roads or unbelievable traffic in the cities, being able to be picked up and dropped off at the villa for either a transport or full-fledged tour made it feel like a real vacation – free from stress and yet being able to explore the region at our leisure. I cannot recommend the villa highly enough. If you are looking for a beautiful villa, attentive owner, a perfect location to explore Tuscany and Umbria and the ability to also just relax, this is the perfect location. I am counting the days until I can return.
