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
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
A Beautifully Well Run Property
I have no qualms recommending this property wholeheartedly. It is very well-run. The space is comfortable and well-equipped. We had a party of 13 people and the villa can accommodate a party of this size comfortably. There are 7 full bedrooms and bathrooms in each of these full bedrooms. The pool at the villa is perfect and well-maintained. The kitchen is fully-equipped with dishes, cooking utensils and even spices. You are able to make your own meals comfortably should you choose. There are many conveniently located supermarkets not far from the villa. We took advantage of the Tuscan dinner arranged by Jacopo and it was absolutely delicious and worth it! The local town Citta della Pieve is an easy 10 minute walk away or you can drive and park easily right at the outskirts of town and walk in. Our two favorite restaurants in town were Trattoria Bruno Cappetta and Taverna del Perugino. People in the town are super nice. Don't miss visiting the area around the local lake - Lake Trasimeno - which is very charming. We attended a summer festival there and very much enjoyed seeing how the local people spend their summer evenings. The local train station Chiusi is about a 17 minute drive away and we took a train from there to Florence one day (in under 2 hours).
When we had a minor issue with a showerhead, it was replaced the next morning. One of Jacopo's team members, Brian, comes every day to take care of the villa and will address any issues you might have. Brian is very friendly and did a good job keeping the grounds perfectly manicured and immediately fixed things like a lightbulb that needed replacing.
We also opened up the optional 8th bedroom for the last minute guests to our group. This 8th bedroom is outside and on the side of the house and also has its own bathroom. While this room was perfectly adequate, it is in reality a notch below the other rooms in charm and has no air conditioning. Due to its location in the basement it did not need air conditioning and there is a fan but I wanted to mention this for anyone who might need the space. If you don't need this extra separate fee bedroom then this will not apply to you.
Overall, we had an amazing time and everything went very smoothly at the villa. We did not have the opportunity to spend any time with Jacopo in person but he was very communicative by Whattsapp for checkin/checkout and our minor issues.
Perfect for our 3 family, 3 generation holiday.
Everything was as described. The town is great for restaurants or shopping.
Sprawling Farmhouse with stunning views!
Villa Baiocco was the perfect backdrop for our yoga retreat. This is the place you go to get away from it all but at the same time it is a great base to explore Tuscany and Umbria. The nearby town Citta della Pieve, within walking distance, provides opportunities to shop, eat and wander.
Well equipped farmhouse with breathtaking 360 views. So many places to retreat to with a book or glass of wine in hand.
The best part is owner Jacopo is a pleasure to deal with. Responsive, reliable and helpful. Answered a hundred questions beforehand and easy to communicate with. Great staff who catered to our needs. We opted for a daily meal service. Cooking class is very interactive and loads of fun. His car hires professional and very comfortable.
We loved our experience so much we are returning next year. Grazie mille Jacopo.
Wonderful Winter Holiday!
The Villa was spectacular; the views, the amenities, the grounds, the location, etc. Jacopo and Angela were welcoming, professional, and friendly after a long trip. We cannot wait to stay again in the summer months.
Thank you all for making New Years 2019 one we as a family will surely remember and cherish.
A Dream Vacation Come True!
5 stars +! An unforgettable family vacation on this dream property. Our group of 15, adults and pre-teen children, gathered at Villa Baiocco to celebrate my 70th birthday. And what a celebration it was. Everything about the Villa was perfect...from the inquiry to the reservation to the arrival. The owner, Jacopo, was so helpful throughout the entire process. He answered all my questions (and there were many!) promptly and graciously. We were greeted by Jacopo and his staff upon our arrival. We were given a thorough orientation... providing us with all necessary information about the villa and neighboring hill town, Citta Della Pieve which is definitely walkable from the villa. I’d say an average 15-20 minute walk.
About the villa itself...wow! Accommodations were plentiful. The en-suite bathrooms for each bedroom were a bonus. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed to prepare and serve meals. The large dining room table was a plus...big enough to accommodate all of us for enjoying meals or to sit and talk about our activities for the day. There were three “sitting” areas throughout the villa for those who wanted a little retreat from the group. It was beautifully furnished...how one would imagine a Tuscan villa would be. We were all comfortable throughout our stay.
Services...services..services! Jacopo can arrange for just about anything. Your wish is his command. We asked him to arrange for transportation on our arrival from Rome and then to the train station in Chuisi upon our departure. The drivers were prompt, friendly and professional. We also rented our cars through Avis in Citta Della Pieve. With the information Jacopo provided us, the cars were delivered to the villa property and were waiting for us upon arrival. They also picked them up upon our departure. A huge plus! We booked the Montepulciano tour...wine tasting with the olive oil and cheese tastings. A memorable trip for all of us! And last but not least, we requested for a meal to be prepared at the villa. We were there over Thanksgiving ...and enjoyed a Tuscan meal..which was fantastic. There is so much more to talk about..the property, the views, etc. ... but this is something one needs to experience on their own. We have rented many properties in Italy...this one rates #1 with us! Thank you Jacopo for everything. It was an amazing 70th birthday celebration/ family vacation.
Stayed November 17, 2018
Thank you Diane!!!
Beautiful estate overlooking the valley will make you not wanna leave
The estate is gorgeous, with nice views of the valley below. Jacopo and his team were very accommodating and responsive. No issues at all, the hardest part was leaving the Villa to go tour the countryside - part of me just wanted to lounge at the house!
Take part in the traditional 'Palio dei Terzieri', a Renaissance spectacle.
