Villa Tenuta Nemo
One of the most amazing
villas in Pantelleria
Vibrant colours, the atmosphere of the Mahgreb, intense nature and the incredible blue of the Pantellerian sea, stretching out to coast of North Africa… this is one of the most amazing villas in our entire collection. Even the people of Pantelleria (which is not short of fabulous villas) recognise that Nemo is something special.
Architect Gabriella Giuntoli has created many outstanding villas on the island – each a work of art – but Nemo has something more, perhaps because Nemo is the result of a collaboration between Giuntoli and the owner, woman of great taste. The large garden (about 8 hectares) is brimming with personality, full of different moods, aspects, even memories, and is surrounded by 4 dammusi which converge on a huge eliptical swimming pool surrounded by a brilliant white solarium (though there is shade for those who want it). The sea views from here are incredible. Within the original cisterns next to the dammusi exotic ‘relax areas’ have been created, strewn with cushions. The central pavilion is the perfect place for an aperitif at sunset, or a magical dinner lit by lanterns. An enchanting place – in which cinema and music stars of international repute have frequently been guests – Nemo is a villa you will never forget.
The largest dammuso looks onto the garden, with a beautiful fountain. It consists of a large living room, TV room, dining room, three bedrooms (a double ensuite room, a twin and another double which share an outdoor bathroom), and a large, well equipped kitchen which opens onto a large Tunisian-style patio furnished with a large table and divans. A romantic ‘avenue’, jokily known by the owners as the ‘viale dell’amore’ or avenue of love, leads to the guest house, the Dammuso Sonnellino, comprising a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom, a patio and a swimming pool. About 100 metres from the main house, with a private entrance, is the Dammuso “Le More”: this has a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom, kitchenette, terrace and solarium. The fourth dammuso,”La Palma”, below the main house a short distance from the swimming pool, is immersed in the olive grove. It has a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom. There is a small herb garden for the use of guests.

This splendid estate on Pantelleria is the ideal place for anyone looking for an exceptionally beautiful place.
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.
