Seven ancient dammusi, wisely restored to preserve the charm of these houses built according to the traditional tecnique of dry wall, are nestled in a Mediterranean park of twelve hectares.
The gardens, the pools, the pinewoods and the palm grove offer the ideal conditions for a holiday away from anything evoking “package tours” and “last minute travels”.
Each dammuso (the typical dwelling of Pantelleria and the typical accomodation in Pantelleria) has fine household linen. Kitchens are fully equipped with appliances, pots, cutlery, glasses and tableware. On request Tenuta Borgia can provide extra cleaning service, chef, babysitter and can arrange car and scooter rentals as well as boat with or without sailor.
The staff of the estate, to which we owe the impeccable care of the houses and the gardens, ensures our guests full satisfaction during their stay. You can rent the dammusi of Tenuta Borgia for one or more weeks but you can also rent the entire estate, which accommodates up to 24 guests.
At only two kilometers from the estate, at the small village of Rekhale (in the southern part of the island) there is a wellstocked store; at 5 km you can reach the old village of Scauri, where you can experience the archaic Sicily: it offers shops and typical restaurants (one of which is right by the sea). Its port is the ideal starting point for sea excursions. Pantelleria airport, at 15 minute drive from the estate, welcomes flights from Milan, Rome, Palermo, Trapani and many other italian cities. Pantelleria city is at 19 km from Tenuta Borgia. Here you can find the bank, a gas station and its commercial and tourist port guarantees ship connections to Palermo and Trapani.
The estate is at 2 km from the sea. The descent to Nikà leads to a tiny slipway for boats and thermal waters flows into the sea a few metres from the shore; the access to Balata dei Turchi offers one of the uncommon flat rocks of the island (the name “balata” means flat stone); the access to Martingana leads to one of the most protected coves from the wind.
The best way to know the sea of Pantelleria and its coastline is to reach Scauri harbor by motorbike or car and rent a boat with or without skipper.
The best way to go around in Pantelleria is to drive motorbikes or small cars along the scenic roads that offer a variety of breathtaking views of the sea, the valleys and the calderas, the hills and the fields. Nature walks, horseback riding and cycling are stunning in spring and autumn, while in the summer, due to the heat, you should make them at sunset or at night under full moon.
In addition, the island offers interesting archaeological visits and wine and food tasting itineraries to discover the exquisite cuisine of Pantelleria and its typical products.
For your vacations in Italy, you can choose an option more luxurious, typical and warm than a hotel, you can choose a fine estate experience at Tenuta Borgia, an accomodation “de charme” in Pantelleria, the mediterranean pearl.
