#5 of 79 Speciality lodging in Pantelleria

Overlooking Pantelleria's sea, in the stretch of coast running from Scauri to the Elephant's Arch cliff, 12 hectares lovingly cultivated, are the heart of Tenuta Borgia, the most charming estate of Pantelleria island. Seven Dammusi wisely restored that have kept intact the original structure, furnished with taste and equipped with all amenities, offer its guests the experience of living in a precious place where nature and culture reaches its perfect blend and expression.

Ultimate Mediterranean charme. The decor is extremely refined and original: each piece was chosen by the owner Rosa Borgia Baroness Collice who has juxtaposed designer furniture, antiques and art objects. Ancient hand-decorated majolica tiles increase the charm to the floors, to the ducchene - the typical Pantelleria's bench - and to the large swimming pool and Jacuzzi pool. Sophisticated details such as hemp linen, bathrobes and rimmed towels, personalized porcelain tableware and high quality appliances complete the Dammusi comfort.

Indoor spaces interact with outdoor to patios, pools, terraces and gardens.The Arabian garden, the largest in Pantelleria, secretly protects precious plants while plam and pine trees provide shade for strolls in the estate while scented and colorful shrubs and olive trees add the magic to this incomparable spot.

We stayed in a quite dammuso, surrounded by palm trees. It was furnished in a simple but cosy way. The staff was nice and helpful. We loved the privacy and the view from the terrace. Cons: - the private street to get to the dammuso is really poorly maintained and very bumpy... be careful - the dammuso has no air conditioning and ... this could be an issue over night since it gets very hot during the day - the maintenance of the interiors and the kitchenware and cutlery is poor and some of them were not well cleaned when we arrived

We came to Tenuto Borgia with high expectation because of the wonderful images of the place and the high price tag. Most expectation were met but the place does have some drawbacks. First of all, the property is beautiful. The downside of this is that it at the furthest point on the island from the main town. This was a plus for us as it’s very quiet and few cars drive by. The dammusi are very private and quite but quite isolated. So no one will bother you or be loud next to your room, but you might feel a bit removed from the life of the island. The isolation extends to that fact that there is no hotel life- no bar, no pool, no breakfast, no front desk. It’s basically like an Airbnb, which may or may not be what you are looking for. This might be perfect for some, but first timers to the island might have a problem being entirely on their own for food and even drinking water. The hotel manager is fantastic. Incredibly friendly and always just a text message away. Our dammuso was warm at night but that comes with the territory of the island. The place was also buggy which is an issue when you need to keep the windows open for the islands cool breeze. This was not enough to be a problem for us but could bother anyone who really doesn’t like insects or ants. You need a car if you stay here but that’s true of almost anywhere on the island.

Thanks for your review and kind comments about Tenuta Borgia. You give us the opportunity to stress out that Tenuta Borgia is NOT a resort. So, as our guest stated, there's no communal areas (with the exception of the Arabian Garden) and no hotel like services (breakfast, bar, reception, shared pool). Furthermore, we are a environment friendly establishment and therefore we do not believe in air conditioning. Tenuta Borgia is at the centre of Pantelleria National Park and it is the ideal place for travellers that favour quiteness and privacy over conventional hotel services.

we loved the peaceful atmosphere and the mediterranean landscape around us. The dammuso is decorated with "tanto gusto". Several places with shadow, sunny and cosy corners ... everyone finds his perfect personal chilling zone.

Tenuta Borgia is a special place situated on nearly 35 acres of vineyard, caper fields, fruit trees and palms. The accommodations, private antique Dammusi, are beautifully renovated. Airy and spacious, each one with unique features, all with private outdoor spaces. Sergio (the Manager) and staff were very friendly and helpful. It was a lovely week spent in an exotic place...

We very much enjoyed the comfortable, clean dammuso. The surrounding farm was lovely as well. It was so quiet and peaceful. The breeze off the sea was refreshing and the stars at night are beautiful. The check in/out process was smooth and without hassle. Well managed.
