Dammuso with garden
and a small pool


Pantelleria, contrada Rekhale









Sensitively restored by celebrated architect Gabriella Giuntoli, Dammuso la Limonaia is an oasis of peace and tranquility within a fatato garden. The restoration has preserved the es-sential rustic character of the house — and is utterly different from the breezeblock dammusi of recent construction — this is a house with an intimate connection to the land, with thick walls of local stone that keep out the summer heat, and shady outdoor spaces to spend the days and evenings relaxing with the luxuriant, vividly coloured and scented Pantellerian landscape at your fingertips.

Dammuso la Limonaia lies on a country estate in Rekhale, in the south of the island, a few kilometres from the port of Scauri, and 14km from Pantelleria town and the airport.
The Dammuso consists of two separate buildings, connected by a limonaia. Each building has a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom and terrace. A small, simple kitchen is shared. Out-side, shaded by a traditional cane roof (cannizzo in local dialect) is a living area furnished with comfy sofas, a dining area, a solarium and a small swimming pool.
For parties of six, an additional small dammuso is available, consisting of a double bedroom with bathroom and outdoor kitchen.

We like

The sweeping Mediterranean park surrounding il Dammuso la Limonaia is really magical. With most tourists opting for the coast, staying in the rural Limonaia gives you a completely different ex-perience of the island’s natural beauty — and total peace is guaranteed. Yet it is just a short drive to the sea.
The traditional Arab garden — an evocative and magical place where it’s easy to spend hours just looking at the plants and breathing in the Arabian nights perfumes.
Dammuso la Limonaia may have an essential simplicity, but attention has been paid to every detail — the top quality white sheets and towels are heavenly.

We think

This is the ideal house for two couples — or three couples, if you add the extra little dammuso.
The ample outdoor living spaces and gardens make the dammuso ideal as well for a family with older chil-dren (adults in one building, kids in the other).

Things to do

The main towns on the island are central Pantelleria and Scauri, which are the island’s two ports of arrival, but there are also little hamlets whose names still recall their Arab domination, such as Khamma, Kattibugale, Kariuscia and Bukkuram.

  • The Favare (which emit aqueous vapour) or the stufe, natural grottos that emit high temperature water vapour and are found in the areas of Kazzen and Benikulà. There are also many thermal springs scattered across the island, such as the Lago di Venere, Cala Gadir and the Grotta di Sataria.
  • At Nikà there is a miniature ‘slide’ for boats, and thermal waters.
  • At Balata dei Turchi there is one of the island’s rare flat rocks.
  • At Martingana there is a bay which is almost always sheltered from the winds.
  • With its picturesque landscapes and variety of natural vegetation it offers visitors the unforgettable experience of nature walks (in the Montagna Grande Natural Park, the Passo del Vento trail, the Cuddia di Fossa del Russo and the Gibele Crater) and trips to a wide range of archaeological sites.
  • Tasting the extremely varied cuisine, which shows the influence of the various peoples who have dominated the island.
