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 Belfiori, which is in the neighboring alley.

Meningher Herbert purchased this house in 2003

Why Meningher Herbert chose Area del Tufo

Casa Messi is unique even by Pitiglianese terms. The square aspect of the house is rare in the neighborhood, and the awesome view and relaxing sound of the cascade and Tuscan hills makes it special indeed. Sitting by the antique fireplace with a glass of Brunello, overlooking the cascade and simply relaxing, or taking a sunny morning breakfast in the terrace, across the antique roofs and in the view of Vicolo della Stella, ain't that something?

What makes this house unique

Casa Messi is perfectly located in the medieval part of Pitigliano, but 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.

Charming medieval home in the historic area.

  • 5 of 5

From the first moment I booked this home Hezy made the experience smooth and easy. The house was perfect. We loved the ancient feel and look. The views were amazing. The location was in the heart of the historic area and perfect for exploring the alleys. The people in Pitigliano were exceptionally nice. I would love to come back and stay here again someday. Thank you Hezy for the great restaurant recommendations and being so accessible. We had a great time.

Outstanding stay, and extraordinary attention to detail!

  • 5 of 5

After two weeks in rental apartments in Italy, Hezy and Sharona's house was the first place we truly felt at home. The house was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, and the beds were extremely comfortable. The kitchen was well-appointed enough to cook entire meals easily.

Hezy also wrote up clear instructions on use of the house, what to see in the town and environs, and recommended restaurants in the area. Further, Hezy connected us to a wonderful local guide who took us to the Etruscan necropolis and the town of Sovana. She also spoke with clear knowledge of Pitigliano's Jewish past, and she was very warm and welcoming.

Hezy offered to go to whatever lengths necessary to ensure that we had a completely satisfying stay at Casa Messi and in Pitigliano, which made our stay very special indeed.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

After a long train journey from Venice and an hour's drive we were met by our host Herbert who took us to the apartment. As soon as we stepped inside it surpassed all our expectations. Two bedrooms , a large bathroom and living area. The kitchen had all our needs too. On opening the windows we looked out to a wonderful view towards the forest, seeing the tree tops, sky and some of Pittglia no township

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
