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

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you very much for a great time at your villa. The standard of the property was excellent and we hope to see you again in the future.

Very best wishes

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful villa was a treasure. Immaculately clean, well stocked, great location and beautiful views. Bedrooms are generous and all are equipped with private baths. Kitchen was well stocked with items we needed for our stay. The owner is gracious and unobtrusive. He helped arrange excursions, cooking classes, pick-ups at the train station and even dinner reservations. We were two couples traveling together, and we all fell in love with the town, the people, and of course, our villa. While this is described as the smaller house on the property, it is very generously sized, with many amenities. Thanks again for a lovely vacation.

Wonderful piece of Tusany!!

  • 5 of 5

You cannot get a better host than Jacopo. We stayed in the smaller villa and it was more than we could hope for. The place is immaculate, private, the owner is quick to respond to questions, and the location is great. I would highly recommend.

Amazing holiday in a fantastic villa.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have holidayed in Jacopo's fantastic villa in Citta della Pieve in Umbria/Tuscany. We had a truly amazing holiday in this villa.

The villa is immaculate yet homely with everything you need. Jacopo is as available and attentive as you need him to be without being at all intrusive. The pictures for the villa, by the way, do not do it justice. This year, Jacopo has added air conditioning which is a fantastic addition. I can honestly say that if there is anything you need, Jacopo will do his best to provide it.

We holidayed this year as an extended family of 6 adults varying in ages from 21 - 57. Everyone loved the holiday and rated it amongst the best we've ever had. The pool and sunbathing areas are amazing and something we thoroughly enjoyed daily. We also had many BBQs in the outside dining area which is a lovely feature of the villa.

The surrounding area is just beautiful with the villa being perfectly located to tour many outstanding towns and villages within easy driving distance. We particularly enjoyed Montepulciano and Arrezo this year.

We also enjoyed several bars and restaurants within walking distance of the villa with Bistro del Duca being particularly worth visiting. It is difficult to find but well worth the effort! Do book or else you may be disappointed!

I highly recommend this villa and hope to be visiting again soon.

Spectacular Villa/Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

Looking for the perfect villa in Umbria or Tuscany that can accommodate a large group? Look no further. Villa Baiocco, along with Casa Baiocco, is the perfect place to spend a couple weeks exploring the beautiful countryside.

The Villa, with it's old-world charm, has seven bedrooms- all ensuite- while the newer Casa has 3 ensuite bedrooms. The villa has been restored to perfection with a large dining room and a large modern kitchen with all the conveniences. Both the villa and the casa are charming and sparkling clean throughout.

We took advantage of both the welcoming dinner and the traditional Tuscan meal. I can recommend both very highly. Plenty of great food and wine at a very fair price. The gnocchi was exceptional!

With two swimming pools, each immaculately cared for, and plenty of places to sit and socialize, one can choose to relax all day and enjoy the beautiful surroundings or wander into the nearby medieval village, Citta della Pieve. The village is one of the most charming in the area with numerous restaurants, bars, a couple well-stocked grocery stores, a pharmacy and a liquor store. We enjoyed our morning cappuccino and cornetto at a bar called "Jolly" where we were warmly greeted each day. Later, we often ventured back to Jolly for their great gelato.

Planning the trip was easy thanks to Jacopo, the charismatic owner. Email after email, question after question, all were answered quickly and patiently. What a pleasure to finally meet him! Jacopo arranged transportation by bus to the villa from Rome where we had been staying for a few days as well a the return trip to the airport. Again- highly recommended. Each day he arrived early to clean the pools and to make sure everything was tidy and working properly. Jacopo takes great pride in making sure that everything is meticulous.

The location of the villa allowed us to visit many of the well-known villages and sites of the Tuscan/Umbrian region. We ventured into Florence and Siena by train- an easy 1.5 hour ride which allowed us to avoid finding our way into and out of both cities. We visited Montalcino, Todi, Cortona, Civita del Bagnoregio, Pienza, Montepulciano, Lake Trasimeno- and a group took advantage of one of Jacopo's tours to Assissi, which they claimed to be one of highlights of the trip.

We have stayed in many different villas in Europe. We all feel Villa Baiocco is very special. If you are looking for a fabulous villa-this is it! Thank you, Jacopo!!

Gorgeous House, Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in the Villa in 2008, and we vowed to return. So, when friends asked if we would accompany them to Italy, we excitedly said "yes and do we have a great place to stay." As we were only 6, we rented Casa Baiocco for 2 weeks. It was just as we remembered. The grounds, full of shrubs, flowers and fragrant rosemary, are meticulously manicured. The pool and surrounding patio are very clean, comfortable, and very private. There is also a covered sitting area with a table and chairs which we used every day for breakfast and afternoon wine and whatever cheeses, meats, olives we purchased that day.The interior of the house was as well cared for as the exterior. It was spacious and very clean and . The bedrooms were large and with wardrobes big enough to hang all our clothes. The bathrooms also were large and clean. The kitchen is a galley kitchen, and also well equipped with everything needed to cook a meal though there are many great restaurants in Citta della Pieve. Jacopo was a gracious, attentive host. It was great to see him again. He arranged for transportation from the train station in Chiusi to the villa (20 min ride) and met us at the door with his interpreter, Angela. He gave us a tour of the house, explained how the gate and outside lights worked. A new offering since our last stay was Jacopo's own wine and olive oil. Both were very reasonable priced and very good especially one rainy afternoon when we didn't want to go out. We didn't expect to see him soon, but the coffee maker didn't work the next morning (Sunday), he came with a new one that afternoon. That's the kind of service he provides. Speaking of service, he also arranged a winery, cheese farm, olive oil farm tour for us which was spectacular. The tour was with a local company who provided a van and a driver who took us to the places off the usual tourist-path. A highlight of our trip. Citta della Pieve is a long walk (15-20 mins) but doable. It is a beautiful hilltop town that between 2008 to 2016 added many cafes, trattorias and restaurants. The people are friendly and gracious. We spoke only a little Italian, but language was never a problem. It was worth walking around the town to look at the beautiful wood doors and flower boxes. This trip was a 25th wedding anniversary trip for all 6 of us, it couldn't have been more perfect. Jacopo was accommodating, responsive but never intrusive. The house is gorgeous, well-kept and comfortable. The town is picaresque.
