Highs & Lows

  • Catch sunset from the roof of your dammuso with a glass of orange wine rather than going to a busy bar.

  • Peaceful and quiet, truly a retreat and perfect place for introspection.

  • Pasta making class with Parco dei Sesi's sweet chef, I came home an expert pasta maker.

  • Located on a more local, and low-key part of Pantelleria where you get to experience the true way of Sicilian living.

  • The artist residency program is amazing, we got to meet and see artists working on really cool projects.

  • Ran out of hot water a few times, but not a big deal if you plan to shower during the day when it's hot out!

  • Parts of the hotel are still under construction but should finish in the summer of 2022.

Pantelleria is stunning. Located only 25 km from Africa, it feels like a secret in the middle of the ocean with African weather and Sicilian flavors. On one side you have the ocean, on the other volcanic formations and mountains. From hot springs by the sea to tiny country roads leading to wineries and secret coves, it feels precious. I almost didn't want to tell anyone about it!
