Pantelleria Nikà

Pantelleria Nikà

The volcanic island of Pantelleria, located between Sicily and Tunisia, is known as the “Black Pearl of the Mediterranean”. The island’s characteristic houses are called dammusi: cube-shaped buildings made of volcanic rock, with dome-like white roofs that serve to catch rainwater. These traditional rural houses are typically found inland. The holiday home Pantelleria Nikà, however, is perched upon rugged cliffs near the sea – with views of the shimmering, blue water and the wide open horizon.

Pantelleria Nikà is comprised of two dammusi connected by steps and paths: an 18th century main building (with a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom) and a slightly higher building dating to the early 20th century (with a bedroom and bathroom). The spectacular location of both houses dominates their design. The focus is the view of the sea, so the decor of the rooms is simple, with furniture pieces made of African Acajou wood and a floor of polished concrete. The monochrome simplicity is accented by installations and photographs by international artists.

In another detached dammuso, there is a suite for two people that can be rented separately or together with the main ensemble. The furnishings are essential and the sea view remains the protagonist. The suite consists of a kitchen, a living room with sleeping area and a bathroom. The outdoor area is spread over several levels.

Thanks to the warm climate, daily life mainly takes place outside on the terraces. Four pergolas with palm-leaf roofs provide sheltered outdoor areas – box seats for the sweeping views across the sea, the sunset and the starry night sky.

What to do

The descent to the sea begins a few meters from the house, a bay with hot springs is also nearby. Hiking, trekking, mountain biking, diving, nature walks, visits to archaeological sites, restaurants and wine tasting.

Why we like this house

A house that all but merges with nature: archaic yet modern, in a unique location above the sea. A home for unforgettable holidays.

This house is great for

Two couples or families with older children – as there are, in fact, two houses. It is even perfect as an exclusive hideaway just for two.
