A jewel of a retreat on the island of Pantelleria










15 x 3,70

Located in Contrada Rekale, on a hillside sloping gently down towards the sea, Il Dammuso Turchese is a textbook example of how to perfectly restore a traditional Pantellerian dammuso in a contemporary key.
Huge sunny terraces – with shade under traditional canopies known as ducchene – along with a spacious solarium and a magnificent swimming pool (perfect for watching breathtaking sunsets), create a refuge that is perfect for anyone who wants to spend a holiday in an intimate, yet tasteful and elegant, home.

Turchese consists of two buildings connected by a patio.
The main building consists of a well-equipped kitchen (also accessible from outside); an ample salone with a typical Pantellerian vaulted ceiling and fireplace; a small study carved into an alcove; a TV room; and a romantic bedroom with its own comfortable bathroom with walls decorated in a style known as ‘tecnica della pastella’.
The second building consists of a large double bedroom with ensuite bathroom and huge walk-in closet.
All the furniture and furnishing have been selected by the owner, a well-known interior designer, to give guests the sensation of finding themselves in a place where every detail has been thought about and where nothing is left to chance. This really is a jewel!

The dammuso is ideal for  two couple of friends who want a luxury retreat in Pantelleria


  • Pantelleria centre 7,4 miles
  • Scauri harbour 3,1 miles
  • Pantelleria airport 6,2 miles

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.
