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

Beautiful Villa July 25 - Ang 12

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the main building for 2 weeks, 3 family's 15 people what a fabulous time we had. For a start the villa is perfect , old world charm for Tuscany and very well equipped . The air conditioning was great for our 104 degree days and we lived by that beautiful pool. Jacopo our host is like a wizard , you call him he is there. He helped us plan so many things ,trains, ticket's to museums, massages and all our wine tasting tour's (you have to take one of these tours a full day of wine tasting with food and a driver don't get any better and grate value) . I booked this villa 2 years ago as a surprise trip for my family because of all the grate reviews it had , and we were not disappointed.

We got the welcome dinner and the Tuscan dinner both delicious and so wonderful to have our family around a large dinning table ( priceless). We also had a pizza lunch , two of Jacopo friends came in and fired up the pizza oven and made pizza , these guys are funny and the kids loved it they got us all involved , and the pizza is out of this world. The desert pizza was the best natalia and nuts .

Location , location the villa is a 10 minute walk to town "Citta della Pieve" this town is out of a this world , and the restaurant are top class and cheep ( Bruno's thinks Jocopo for organizing ) . We went to Rome, Florence And Venice from the local train station 15 minutes away very convenient. There is also a lot of towns to visit with in a 30 minute drive of the villa.

Villa Baiocco is a gem , the staff our great . It was our trip of a life time and it did not disappoint . Thanks Jocopo.

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!

A most memorable two weeks in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

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.

The trip of a lifetime thanks to Villa Baiocco!

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin? Ten women who have been friends for over 25 years planned a trip to Italy to celebrate retirement. The core of the trip was a stay at a Tuscan or Umbrian villa and after much searching and discussion we settled on Villa Baiocco. And I can't imagine there is a better choice to be made in all of Italy! From the moment we arrived, Jacopo and Angela and Natasha went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect. The villa itself is marvelous...spacious, so well-equipped, walking distance from a most charming village with a cafe, grocery, cute shops, a great restaurant (Trattoria Bruno Coppetta) and cathedral for Sunday services. The bedrooms were comfortable, the bathrooms modern, and there are two outdoor patios for relaxing, dining, cocktails, and of course the pool! I just can't think of how it could be better! But in addition to a gorgeous villa, the hospitality shown by all was superb. We had a full breakfast every morning, two dinners and a cooking class prepared by the staff...all of which was delicious, and regional. Finally, if you stay here, definitely have Jacopo help you with logistics and transportation. We used his transportation services every day and it made our day trips so much more enjoyable and productive. The drivers

were excellent and informative. He also arranged great guides for a couple of our day trips and recommended a winery for a tour and lunch. Bottom line, if you are looking for a perfect location for the perfect group trip to Italy, please look no farther. It doesn't get any better than Villa Baiocco!!

Ideal Family Reunion Property

  • 5 of 5

Surprisingly spacious, attention to detail, magnificent host; these are just a few ways to describe Villa Podere Baiocco. Our extended family group of 13 enjoyed every minute of our one week stay. We took advantage of arranging two dinners with Jacopo. All family members absolutely loved gathering around the long dinner table, to feast on excellent food and the adults enjoyed drinking lots of wine. The Villa is very close to a small, charming town and everything we needed was easily obtained. The villa is also situated such that our day trips were relatively close; Montalcino, Assisi, Pienza, Deruta, Sienna, etc... Several in our group made a long day trip to San Marino and absolutely enjoyed it.

We ordered breakfast for each morning and I highly recommend it. It gave our group a place to start the day and plan for who was going where.

We all agree that this was an outstanding place to have our family reunion!

Thank you Jacopo!

Ideal vacation home in the hills of Umbria!

  • 5 of 5

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.
