About Meningher Herbert

I love Italy, and especially Pitigliano, and I would like to share this love with you, by offering you the best home way from home for your vacation, and also sending you detailed personal recommendations on the best places to be, eat and visit in Pitigliano and surroundings. And, if it is booked, I can also offer you Casa Messi 2 bedroom apartment, which is in the neighboring alley.

Meningher Herbert purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Meningher Herbert chose Pitigliano

Casa Messi 1 bedroom apartment is located in a very typical, 600 years old, perfectly renovated stone house, which enables experiencing real Pitigliano. It is fully equipped and comfortably furnished with everything you might need, and is ideal for exploring Pitigliano and surroundings.

What makes this apartment unique

Casa Messi apartments and studios are perfectly located in the medieval part of Pitigliano, yet it is close to a public parking. It is in a quiet alley, and yet centrally located and very close to restaurants, bars, shops, deli's, artisans and more. Especially good for cyclists, who can park in my cantina (local, detached basement) next by.

terrific accommodation

  • 5 of 5

I went to Pitigliano to hike the Vie Cave. Fantastic stay at Cass Belfiori. Everything was as advertised. Herbert was super helpful answering my questions. The location was excellent; the apartment was spotless and well-furnished. Nelide, the local agent, was so helpful when my train was late and I missed the bus.

Best of all, the price was incredible.. I would highly recommend Casa Belfiore. It scores a "10" with me.

So cute and quaint!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in this apartment! It had everything you'd need and was clean. The bed was actually quite comfortable and I was surprised by how quiet the village was at night, so I slept very well there. The owner was helpful and always responded to e-mails quickly. He even e-mailed me a "House Book" that was easy to print off and actually came in very handy while we were there. It had restaurant recommendations and explained things about the house and the village. Thank you for everything!

Thoughtfully decorated cozy apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment in the center of old town Pitigliano – a gem of Southern Toscana.

Renewed apartment, where every detail is carefully thought about. Apartment is well maintained and has everything you may need for a wonderful relaxing vacation. We spent a week in November in this apartment, visited beautiful towns and villages nearby: Sorano, Sovana, Manciano, baths of Saturnia, hiked Via Cave around, drove to Orvieto and Todi, Bagno Vignoni and Vivo D’Orcia region. The place is excellent in every time of the year. There were almost no tourists in November, and the golden autumn together with the unforgettable views and charm of the old town of Pitigliano were fashinating.

The owner is very friendly and ready to answer all your questions about the apartment and the area. He sent us full description of everything we may need or want to visit long before our journey. Apartment is maintained by a local lady, everything is very clean and she even heated the apartment before our arrival. We don't speak Italian, but understood everything we needed. And the owner said we can phone him every time we need translation or explanation.

Thank you very much, Herbert, for our exceptional vacation in your apartment. We will certainly recommend it to our friends.

gutes Quartier, beste Lage

  • 5 of 5

Ein tolles Quartier in bester Lage. Ich würde es jederzeit wieder buchen. Ein wunderschöner Ort und gute Ausflugsmöglichkeiten. Der Parkplatz im Ortszentrum ist sehr teuer, wir haben etwas außerhalb in Friedhofsnähe geparkt. Schön wäre es, wenn Fewo-direkt die Telefonnummer des Vermieters mitteilen würde, da man sonst vor verschlossener Tür steht.

Fazit: alles bestens - gerne wieder

Owner's Response: Thanks a lot for your kind review! I am happy to update that starting October there will be coded key locks next to my apartments doors, so that guests will be able to choose between meeting Nelide who will escort them from Piaza della Republica, or see themselves in, if they prefer so.

Pitigliano est un village magnifique et tranquille

Accueil chaleureux par une dame locale

Tout le nécessaire est présent dans cet maison de bourg bien aménagée, calme et pourtant dans le centre(même si les commerces étaient fermés: fériés durant cette période)

Nous avons eu beaucoup de conseils en amont, ce qui a permis de cibler nos sorties

Les visites et gastronomie sont en abondance

Nous avons passé un très bon séjour

Pitigliano is a small, medieval, perfectly preserved Italian village in the south of Tuscany. It is centrally located between Florence, Sienna and Rome. The village offers all the tourist comfort with artisan and artist shops, quality restaurants, deli shops, home made pasta and local wine makers. The city is located on the top of a reddish volcanic tuffa rock, and the houses emerge from the rock and have the same reddish color. Due to the special view of the red rock which is flood lighted by nights the village is also called 'The little Jerusalem'.

The surroundings offer many days of activities, including natural spa's, Etruscan ancient tombs and manually digged paths (via cava), lakes. rivers, wineries, castles and many other beautiful villages and cities. Pitigliano has a 500 years old Jewish heritage, and recently more than 5 underground digged in the rock levels had been revealed in the Jewish Ghetto, under the Synagogue, including an antique Matza stove and kosher winery.

Other Activities: On Lago Bolsena, 25 minutes drive, water skiing and sailing
