In the heart of an archeological on the Sicilian island of Pantelleria in the middle of the Mediterranean sea, the “dammuso,” a stone habitation typical of the island, overlooks the sea, sun and Africa. It is a beautiful and vast property where local black volcanic stone architecture is seamlessly integrated into the landscape. During a recent renovation of the property, the owners did not miss any details and brought a love of raw materials, imperfections, selected objects and art to create beautiful harmonious and relaxing spaces. You will be surrounded by breathtaking landscapes and art.
Pantelleria, the Black Pearl of the Mediterranean, is a place to discover and respect, with its jagged-edged, black volcanic rocks carved by the wind juxtaposed by roundness dammusi dwellings, natural hot springs and rejuvenating mud found on the island. Here nature is the absolute master, while the island embraces the sea of an intense blue color seems to be lost in a dream. The island stands out for its rugged coastline and the green countryside overhanging the sea. This isn’t a place of sandy beaches, but rather one of small coves with crystal clear waters, spectacular and mysterious caves and a comfortable descent to the sea over smooth rocks. Here you can discover by boat the fascinating cliffs and dive into the crystal clear waters around the island.
Pantelleria is part of Sicily, but the island actually lies much closer to Africa than Italy. It is precisely this privileged position (Homer called it “the navel of the Mediterranean”) which gives the island its look and its culture rich in contrasts, a place of Arabic forms and typical scents of Southern Italy. The island is characterized by its dammusi, archaic architectural structures made in stone, immersed harmoniously in the vineyards planted with Zibibbo grapes. Vineyards whose cultivation is still carried out according to ancient rules and traditions that have been recognized as part of the UNESCO World Heritage.
Note: there is a collection of smaller homes on the property that can be rented to accommodate 22 guests in total. The outdoor pool area and deck is nestled in nature and can accommodation more than 100 guests for a wedding.
