Tenuta Borgia in Rekhale, farm devoted to the production of olive oil and Passito wine, is one of the most exclusive and stunning retreat of Pantelleria. Located on the southwest side of the island, in the heart of the coastline from the ancient village of Scauri and the stunning cliff of Arco dell’Elefante, Tenuta Borgia dominates Pantelleria’s richest coast endowed with caves, lava sculptures, emerald coves. Besides being the most striking of the coastline, this spot is also the one from which we assist dramatic sunset in the sea.
50 meters away from the sea as the crow flies, the dammusi of Tenuta Borgia are surrounded by a large Mediterranean park: palm trees and pinewoods create delicious shaded areas while the numerous fruit trees provide the guests juicy lemons, peaches, loquats, grapes, figs and persimmons, according to the season.
The activity of the farm is the cultivation of zibibbo wines – from 2014 listed in the UNESCO heritage – to produce the famous Passito di Pantelleria, and olive trees to obtain a delicious extra virgin olive oil.
In Tenuta Borgia there is a piece of traditional Mediterranean architecture, the Arabian garden, remarkable for its size: an outdoor area fenced by high walls designed to protect precious citrus plants. The one in Tenuta Borgia is the most beautiful garden of Pantelleria island, which preserves its ancient lava stone walls and the original irrigation system. The wooden benches inside invite to rest and abandon themselves in a dreamy atmosphere. At night, the park of the estate acquires the charm of silence and you can walk through, led by a discreet lighting, conceived for strolls among the trees under the stars.
The dammusi of Tenuta Borgia (the “dammusi of Pantelleria” par excellence!) are an example of a successful symbiosis between settlement and nature, a perfect resort offering a exquisite experience of the harmonious flow of closed and open spaces. The decor of the different settings is extremely pleasant and original personally chosen by the owner, Rosa Borgia Baroness Collice. It is a sophisticated combination of functional design furniture and vintage objects.
The appliances are of high quality as well as the materials used: solid wood, antique local handmade tiles.
