About Jacopo Baiocco

Anybody who has to manage a family knows that flexibility is the keyword to make everybody happy. Adjusting to the different members‘ needs can prove a real challenge. Podere Baiocco is a truly family run business and we have grown tremendously by all the challenges we had in our own family. One may even say that we have developed a strong talent for flexibility, which you will see reflected throughout Podere Baiocco - in the structure, in our services and how we cater to your needs.

The whole layout of the residence adapts to very individual and different needs. Whether it be the lone traveler who wishes for a B&B, full hotel service or a family who enjoys the privacy of a self-catering villa - for groups of up to 22 people we will arrange everything to make your holidays an unforgettable experience.

Our family does not live on Podere Baiocco, you‘ll have it all to yourself, but it was originally meant to be our family home and a lot of love and care went into the renovation of the historic farmhouse. You will notice, it feels just like a home.

Jacopo Baiocco purchased this villa in 1998

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.

Bellissimo!!

  • 5 of 5

I full-filled my bucket list wish of staying in an Italian villa in Tuscany and could not be more thrilled with our choice of accommodations! It was my husband and I (both in our late 30s), my brother (40), and my parents (mid 60s). We stayed in this villa for a week. The villa is beautiful and spacious. Everything is very clean and the outdoor spaces for dining, reading and swimming are immaculate. We rented a car for our entire time here and spent many days driving to nearby hill top towns. Jacopo was so great at recommending places to go or sights to see. My favorite towns were Cortona and Montepulciano. We also spent many afternoons walking into the little town nearby and having cappuccino or prosecco on patios! The town also has a few wonderful restaurants that we went to for dinner (Jacopo recommended them). This villa is a great central location to explore the Umbria/Tuscany region. We took a train from Rome to Chiusi and then rented our car in Chiusi for the week. The driving in this part of Italy is very easy and stress free. I would highly recommend this place for anyone wanting a relaxing, beautiful, authentic Italian vacation in the country! I hope one day I can return.

Three Couples Italian Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our goal of living with the Italian people was more than accomplished. Our Villa was spacious, clean, picturesque views and very close to the quaint village of Citte del Pieva. The rooms of the villa were very spacious and each couple had complete privacy when desired. The location provided the means to meet our goal. We often dined in our villa purchasing our food from the local village. The owner, Jacopo was always accommodating when we had requests, questions, suggestions and assistance with local information. The owner is also friends with many inhabitants of the village which helped when we visited restaurants, stores, coffee shops. We would recommend this facility to family and friends and others who want an "Italian Experience.

Awesome holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful month's stay at Podere Baiocco. The location was superb, 1 Km from the centre of town that has a great selection of restaurants and 2 large grocery stores.

The Villa was spotless, modern with all the amenities one needs. Jacopo was extremely accommodating and very helpful with all our requests. The villa and facilities exceeded our expectations! It's situated half way between Rome & Florence and only short drives to many great towns. Would definitely return.

Perfect vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Love love love Villa Baiocco! This is my second stay, I originally stayed in the larger villa in Oct 2013, and have been wanting to come back since. Jacopo the owner is terrific, whatever questions you have or help you need, he and his team are there. The house itself is super comfortable, the furniture inspires napping and the beds are really comfortable. My friends and I all like to cook, and the kitchen was fully stocked with equipment, and we made quite a few memorable meals. This villa is perfectly situated in Citta Della Pieve, close to everything you would want to do in Umbria and Tuscany. Citta itself is terrific, great restaurants and shops, wish I could make a stay in the villa an annual event!!!

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 3 retired couples just spent 4 weeks at Casa Baiocco. The villa is very nice, but I am most impressed by the way Jacopo communicated with me. He made planning the trip very easy and stress-free. We exchanged emails so often I felt like I had a new friend, even though we had never met. I highly recommend Podere Baiocco and congratulate Jacopo and his staff on a job well done!
