    A Deeply Personal Dammuso Dwelling, Straight out of a Guadagnino Film

    Two hundred meters from the sea, on "the black pearl of the Mediterranean" Pantelleria – literally a landscape of charcoal-hued lava stone – exists a seaside sanctuary.

    A Deeply Personal Dammuso Dwelling, Straight out of a Guadagnino Film

    Two hundred meters from the sea, on "the black pearl of the Mediterranean" Pantelleria – literally a landscape of charcoal-hued lava stone – exists a seaside sanctuary created by a Parisian ex-model agent and her art and tech-influenced Milanese-Sicilian husband. "The powerful nature and history of the island has been a source of inspiration for our family for the past 40 years," they say. 

    And so they set about to create their own poem to Pantelleria. They restored the property owned by their artist parents since the 1970s, held together by ancient rocks. Seemingly lit entirely by diffused natural light and facing expansive views of the sea and Africa, it is the simple, beautiful things that stir the very marrow of your being here.

    We love the home's curation of art and design books, its ochre chevron tilework, and collection of art works in collaboration with the local A’Nica Gallery. "We want to invite creative souls to be inspired, enrich and share a collection of art," the owners add. This is the kind of place for those who feel that luxury is a salad made with zero pesticides and the bounty just outside the door, or that watching a sunset with a spritz in hand, after a meal of the island's prized fish and capers is the ultimate pre-bedtime ritual.

    This house is located on a private property on five hectares. There are 11 accommodation options, plus the option of renting the entire property exclusively. Eight of the options have air conditioning and heating. Venere Master Suite is perfect for honeymoons and other romantic getaways, with its steam room and heated indoor pool, plus sea and sunset views. Please check each unit for details.

    An organic vegetable garden and poultry are located on the property, which is surrounded by vast terrain of olive trees, capers plantations, and curated gardens. The entire compound has several structures with plenty of space in between, and you will have access to all of its common areas, including a large pergola, vast seaview swimming pool of 12m x 6m (with minimal chemicals), and solarium. All rooftops are accessible and face the sea and sunset.

    EXPERIENCES

    The hotel is fully staffed with chefs, butlers, cleaners and the hosts themselves. The resident chef, exclusive to guests of the property, prepares Mediterranean cuisine using local, seasonal ingredients. The property is an official organic farm producing capers, olives, olive oil and oregano, and fresh pasta and bread are made on site. All meals happen are served at a communal table under the pergola, with a different menu each day, and a lunch box can be prepared for excursion days. On Wednesdays, the chef teaches the secrets of Sicilian pasta making in an outdoor cooking class, followed by lunch.

    Guests are invited to disconnect. There are no TVs, but there are art books. Wifi is available only in the main pergola and the Grande Dammuso or upon request. There is a dishwasher in the kitchen, and laundry service. Daily cleaning is included, with a change of bed sheets every week, and a change of towels every four days.

    The team can create custom-made bespoke experiences, including lunches, dinners, yoga, massages (by the pool or under a tree), boat trips, hikes, and private dinners in unique locations. The sea is a 10-minute walk from the property, and vehicle rental is highly recommended for exploring the island. Three e-bikes are available for use, with others available from rental partners.

    This property is also suitable for events. If you would like to organize a retreat or other event, please inquire.

    AROUND

    This property is located in the heart of the archeological Sesi park in Pantelleria. There's not an abundance of things to do here, but that's the general ethos. Those in-the-know come for the food, the sunbathing, the genuine community and the company of their loved ones in a spectacular natural setting. You can rent a moped or a car while you're on the island, and explore its coves and inlets.

    With volcanic activity still aplenty, the island doubles as an open-air spa. In the summer, the owners suggest watching the smoky fumaroles come out of the ground during a trek to Favare, taking a dip in the thermal waters of Cala Nikà or just laying down for hours in the bubbling waters of Lago Specchio di Venere, after having covered your body with its dark, smoothing clay. 

    LOCATION

    Pantelleria, Italy. Nearest airport: Aeropuerto di Pantelleria (8.4km)

    BEST TIME TO VISIT: Pantelleria is well-documented as a magical summer gateway, but true lovers of the island know that it has much more to offer all year long. Truman Capote even once said, "Pantelleria is born for the winter. With its mysterious silence, its positive energy, the starry sky and the smell of the sea, you realize that you have need of nothing else."
