About the property

3 rooms , double toilets, two double beds and children room, 10 minutes from spa

This holiday rental home is in a renovated 600 years old stone house. The first level includes living room with antique fireplace (non functioning), kitchen, dining corner and toilet. The second level includes the master double bedroom, a children room with two beds, toilet and shower, and a beautiful terrace. The attic on the third level is lighted and airy and children like to use it as their 'secret' playground. The place is suitable for two couples or a couple with up to 3 children. The house is accessed through romantic medieval alleys. Enter through the main door to the feng shui, well balanced, perfectly square space of the first level, and open the windows. The unique sound and view of a beautiful waterfall against the wavy Tuscan hilltops and forests will undoubtedly fill you with calm and joy. The waterfall is also visible from the second level master bedroom and shower windows. Ideally suited to the Slow Travel tourism of Pitigliano and beautiful surroundings.

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.

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
