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.

We Loved It! Beautiful Villa, gorgeous views and landscaping and the most accommodating Host!

  • 5 of 5

We did love everything about our experience at this Villa. But most important were the people. Our host could not have been nicer or more helpful with local transportation and reservations, transport to the airport and everything else in between. The chef that prepared the meals we had at the villa was very good and the drivers were exceptional. The Villa and pool were immaculate, the beds were very comfortable and the main kitchen was well appointed and easy to use. It is within easy walking distant to the charming town of Citta Della Pieve and wonderful restaurants...great food! And even though one us us had a spider bite and had to go to the local hospital, she was very impressed with her treatment. I have already recommended the villa to friends who want to plan a large family vacation. There are two items I would also mention. We did have some trouble with the Wi-Fi and connecting to the internet. Also, as a personal preference we would all like softer pillows.

The best recommendation is that we all want to come back again!

An outstanding villa and an outstanding host!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 12 retired adults (6 couples). Jacopo's (pronounced Ya-co-po, accent on the Ya) villa suited us perfectly. As others have mention it is a short walk into town (although somewhat uphill for the first 300 meters) and there are many restaurants to try (check tripadvisor). The bedrooms were spread out so noise was not an issue. The common areas easily accommodated our full group plus there were a number of smaller areas to get away if needed.

We took advantage of 4 different prepared dinners: welcome, Tuscan, wine tasting and cooking demonstration. All were excellent and great value. We cooked for ourselves a few nights and went out the others. Lots of options.

Jacopo was always available if we had any questions or issues. During our stay he replaced the stovetop and the dryer the day after we reported an issue with them. Jacopo was also very good about respecting our enjoyment. He needed to have the trees trimmed and asked us what day would be best so we were not disturbed.

I can't say enough good things about the villa and our host. I would not hesitate to go back or recommend this villa to family and friends. Thank you Jacopo for a very enjoyable time at Villa Podere Baiocco!

Absolutely outstanding - cannot recommend highly enough

  • 5 of 5

Not only are the two villas (we rented both for a party of 16) fantastic, but so are the spacious and beautifully kept grounds, the beautiful pools and the lovely town of Citta della Pieve nearby. And then to add to all this, the service and support provided by Jacopo and his team were absolutely first class.

We could not have wanted anything more perfect for our week in beautiful Umbria. The villas are in perfect condition with extremely comfortable bedrooms and very well equipped common areas. We took advantage of the breakfast offered by Jacopo as well as two catered dinners which were excellent. Finally we also had two full day guided tours to visit highlights of the region which were organsied by Jacopo and were absolutely first class.

Sincere thanks to Jacopo - don't be surprised if we're back!

The most amazing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had the absolute best family vacation here! 12 adults and 5 children fit perfectly into the larger villa. Jacopo was wonderful, quick to reply to our questions both prior to our arrival and upon arrival, and incredibly helpful in scheduling private dinners in the villa, making reservations at local restaurants, and booking a tour for the whole group. He made sure we had baby beds for the infants and had shopped for our groceries prior to arrival. He really made the trip effortless!

The villa had more than enough sleeping and living space for everyone, and was incredibly clean and well taken care of. Each family having their own space, bathroom and shower was a true luxury. We had young children who needed naps/needed to go to sleep early - the private spaces made this very easy and the house was pretty much soundproof. The rest of the group was still able to celebrate all day/night in the shared spaces. Sleep was not a problem here!

The outdoor space, pool and views were unreal. The photos are beautiful, but the only way to truly understand how spectacular the villa and grounds are is to see them in person. There was a group staying in the smaller villa next door, but we never saw or heard them - everything was completely separate and private. Having a huge private pool with tons of private lounge chairs and an amazing view was incredible.

The meals in-house were delicious! We opted to have a chef 5 nights at our huge outdoor table and something new was prepared each night. Having someone cook, serve you and clean up in your own home was so relaxing, and booking the meals was the easiest part, thanks to Jacopo and Natasha! These meals were especially beneficial since we had young children and going out to eat can sometimes be difficult with the time change/sleep schedules. It was wonderful to come home from a day of touring, or walk in from a day by the pool, to a fabulous multi-course meal (and wine!).

The little town of Citta della Pieve was adorable and a breath of fresh air away from the larger tourist destinations. We walked into town multiple times, including two nights where the whole group walked together with baby strollers for dinners. The walk is slightly hilly, but we had so much fun! The train station in Chiusi was close and convenient for those that didn't rent cars.

Would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a fabulous, care-free group getaway in Italy! We hope to visit Jacopo and his amazing villa again very soon!

The best place I have ever stayed

  • 5 of 5

This my second trip to the same villa. I love it there. It is beautiful and has a gorgeous pool. The host of the villa, Jacopo, is amazing. He will arrange tours, driver, massages and his staff will cook for you if you want. He is a great host. The villa is within walking distance from the town with shopping and activities and 15 minutes from the train to anywhere. I highly recommend this experience.
