From one woman’s passion for this magical, rugged, wild place came the idea of transforming a large private residence into an exclusive destination.
This is Pantelleria, the Black Pearl of the Mediterranean, a place to discover and respect, with its dark rocks carved by the wind, its sharp forms softened by the roundness of the white dammusi dwellings, its natural hot springs and rejuvenating mud, the precious legacy of the volcano from which the island originated.
The music of the wind crashes dramatically on the cliffs, as if to remind us that here, nature is the absolute master. But that nature is also our friend.
And finally the sea, an intense blue, in which to get lost and dream. A sea which whispers tales of an Africa that is closer than we ever could have imagined.
As far as excursions go and some general information about the the island, Pantelleria stands out, amongst other things, 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 descent to the sea over smooth rocks. Pantelleria’s volcanic origins are also to thank for its authentic open-air spa facilities: from the hot springs of Gadir and the Benikulà Cave natural sauna to the mud of the Lago di Venere, every corner of Pantelleria offers regeneration fthe senses and reconciliation with nature. Sikelia and Pantelleria are synonymous with luxury, privacy and tranquillity.
We offer the opportunity to create precious memories of unforgettable experiences that only Pantelleria can give through our Sikelia Experiences and excursions. The agricultural techniques used to cultivate our vines are the only ones recognized as UNESCO heritage; how not to taste the fruits of the hard work of this heroic cultivation dating back to the time of the Phoenicians? And where else in the world will you be able to enjoy the fruits of our labour, "nectar of the gods," at sunset in the warm waters of Gadir's thermal springs?
Pantelleria is also considered the most beautiful destination in Italy for the scuba diving for its intense blue waters and the backdrops of Roman amphora and coves to explore.
Timeless, hidden, intense and unique. Sikelia as an artistic and emotional experience.
