This exceptional property sleeps up to 14 in a beautifully decorated spacious villa. Recently renovated and quite private, the villa is situated in the country in a tranquil spot surrounded by vineyards and olive trees, but only a brief one kilometer walk to a charming walled village where you will find great restaurants, wine bars, groceries, banks, gelato (the BEST in Italy!);in short most everything that you will need to make your stay exceptional.
The property is ideally located just ten minutes from Chiusi where you can catch the Eurostar train, or pick up the A1 Superhighway and be in either Florence, Rome or Siena in just over an hour. Additionally, you are close enough to the Umbrian border to make easy day trips to places like Assisi, Perugia, Cortona, Deruta, and Spoletto and still be back home in time for dinner. Or you could head to the thermal spa and baths in San Casciano dei Bagni, about 20 minutes away; or the wine towns of Montepulciano and Montalcino which are also closeby. All these destinations and many more are easily reachable in a daytrip from the villa.

This villa was a wonderful place to base our visit to Tuscany/Umbria. It had ample room for our 14 guests. The villa owner /manager and his co-workers did an excellent job ensure the facilities and the property was in good order. Also, the meals they prepared for us were excellent. The American contact organized a wine tour which was one of the highlights of the trip. Will and have recommended the villa to others. Note: for those wanting American coffee bring your own coffee as well as #4 coffee filters, we could not find any #4 filters in the local stores.
Our group consisted of 6 couples that have been friends for decades but this was our first attempt at a week long vacation. The villa was the perfect place. All of the bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable. There was space for privacy. The house and grounds were immaculate. They prepared a delicious dinner our first night which we enjoyed so much that we all agreed to ask them to do it again our last night. Upon arrival, Jacopo met us in town to guide us to the villa which was very helpful since in August some of the streets are closed to traffic. Jacopo and Fabio were never in the way or even visible but magically appeared whenever we needed anything or had a question. As a result we felt free to enjoy ourselves but never needed to wait for help when we wanted it.
The Villa was an absolute delight. So well kept in every way. The grounds were gorgeous. The view was amazing. Every room in the villa has such personality. So much room , we had 16 people & were more than comfortable. The little town was only a mile away which was so convenient. I would recommend this place to anyone & everyone. Can't wait to go back & can't imagine staying anywhere else.
I can not give enough praise for this Villa. The grounds and the Villa were spotless . Look at the pictures and add much more beauty and elegance to them -- we were speechless when we got there-- everything was up to and way beyond our hopes !! I can't list all the great features of the house and grounds & town-- it would take way too long--Just know it is well beyond what you can imagine !! We spent 3 wks. with spouses,children, grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren and it was wonderful !! Plenty of room and the pool was perfect. Jacopo was very helpful to us and we had him cook 2 evening meals for us and they were wonderful !! Can't say enough good things about the Villa and the staff-and we had plenty if privacy. BUT I CAN TELL YOU THAT YOU WON'T HAVE A NICER VACATION--THAT I PROMISE !!
For so long I had a dream of a vacation at an Italian villa. Our vacation was far better than any dream. My husband and I and 4 other couples had the most wonderful two weeks at Podere Baiocco. We wanted a place within walking distance to a village and within a reasonable distance to hill towns. The villa was this and so much more. The villa is lovely inside and out, the house large enough for 10, spotlessly clean and although large , has a warm feeling that feels like home immediately upon entering. The grounds are just beautiful, flowers, plantings, cypress and olive tress all lovingly cared for by the owner. The village of Citta Della Pieve is a 15 minute walk from the villa and reflects the same warm and welcoming feeling, it's residents and shop owners courteous and friendly. We traveled to many enchanting hill towns in Tuscany and Umbria but we were always glad to come home to the villa and the village. Thank you for helping dreams come true.
WE TRAVELLED WITH 4 OTHER COUPLES TO THIS VILLA. WE FOUND IT TO BE VERY WELL APPOINTED AND VERY VERY SPACIOUS. LOTS OF OUTDOOR EATING AND SITTING AREAS AND A LARGE DINING ROOM INSIDE. THE GROUNDS ARE VERY WELL KEPT AND THE POOL WAS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION ( ALTHOUGH COOL THIS TIME OF YEAR). I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS VILLA VERY HIGHLY. THERE WERE 2 FELLAS TO CONTACT IF WE NEEDED ANYTHING AT ALL AND WERE VERY HELPFUL UPON CHECKING IN TO GIVE DETAILS ON RESTAURANTS IN THE VILLAGE. ALL OF OUR QUESTIONS WERE ANSWERED BEFORE WE EVEN ARRIVED AND A DRIVER WAS ARRANGED FOR US UPON OUR REQUEST.
IF YOU REQUIRE A LARGE VILLA AND WANT TO BE WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF A VERY QUAINT TOWN WITH SHOPPING AND RESTAURANTS....LOOK NO FURTHER, YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU STAYED AT THIS BEAUTIFUL VILLA.
