Island of Pantelleria | Sikelia Luxury Resort

Pantelleria

A wild and peaceful land at the heart of the Mediterranean, offering African-hued sunsets and unforgettable starlit nights: welcome to Pantelleria, a beautiful and intriguing place, born around 300,000 years ago, whose volcanic origins are reflected still today in its colours and its secrets.

Pantelleria is part of Sicily, but the island actually lies much closer to Africa than Italy.

It is precisely this privileged position (Homer called it "the navel of the Mediterranean") which gives the island its look and its culture rich in contrasts, a place of Arabic forms and typical scents of Southern Italy.

The island 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 for the senses and reconciliation with nature.

The architecture too is unique, reflective of the fact that man has had to bend to the will of nature, which here reigns supreme: from the unusual Pantelleria gardens created to protect the citrus trees from the wind, to the typical dry stone walls which weave between the curves of the white dammusi dwellings, and the green and black landscape sloping down to the sea through ingenious terracing.

Pantelleria is an island which you will only discover by abandoning yourself completely to its will.
