I just spent my 50th birthday with a group of 12 at Podere Baiocco and I must say that it exceeded all of my expectations. The villa is absolutely beautiful both inside and out. It is also spotlessly clean and each room is large, unique and has it's own large private bathroom. I have traveled all over Italy and have never had the pleasure of a large bathroom .. another wonderful surprise was the amazing water pressure in the showers! Everyone in our party slept well as the beds were incredibly comfortable! There are numerous outdoor spaces for eating, gathering and hanging out. We arrived and had arranged with Jacopo for two vans to pick us up at the airport in Rome. It was early (before check-in) so the drivers took us to the town of Citta Della Pieve a mile away and much to our delight Jacopo had arranged for a translator to meet us in town, show us around and take us to the restaurant where Jacopo had made us a lunch reservation. The drivers then dropped off our luggage at the villa so it would be there for us on arrival. Jacopo arranged for us to be picked up after lunch and taken to the villa. After traveling all day it was so nice not to have to think about a thing as it was all taken care of by our wonderful host Jacopo. We had arranged both the welcome dinner and the traditional tuscan dinner and both were amazing. Jacopo prepared the best lasagna that any of us had ever eaten. All of the food was fabulous. We had the breakfast at the villa daily and it was also terrific. A nice selection of breakfast foods and everything was delicious. I will miss my daily cappuccino! Every night we used the fireplace in the living room and had our fireside chats. The setting of this villa with beautiful landscape surrounded by olive trees is something out of a movie. We rented cars and they were waiting at the villa for us. We traveled to many nearby towns and explored the beautiful countryside. Jacopo arranged for lunch and a tour at the winery Corte Pavone. Amazing scenery, lunch and wine .. don't miss this. I hope to return some day to this magical place in Tuscany. Jacopo is a wonderful host and from the moment we booked he did everything he could to accommodate us. I am forever grateful.
