Welcome to Corte Pantesca I
Where time stands still
Corte Pantesca I is the place to ditch your phone and appreciate some downtime in an organic paradise setting. Our luxury dammusi accommodation is for purists only.
Enjoy Pantelleria’s dazzling sunset from the garden. One of the most dramatic in the world, where Italy meets Africa. We prescribe a glass of Passito wine to complete the moment.
Corte Pantesca I is a beautifully renovated dammuso whose sustainable design respects the local environment and reflects the essence of Pantelleria tradition.
Sink into a leisurely pace of life on Pantelleria.
The ‘black pearl’ of the Mediterranean is off-radar for most tourists and a favourite hideaway for A-listers. Where sunsets and starry night skies will stay in your memory forever.
What makes it special
Corte Pantesca I is an 18th century Dammuso set in one hectare of land. Hewn out of local lavastone and crowned with a white domed rooftop, the thick walls keep the baking heat out during the summer and the interiors warm during the winter.
If you are seeking privacy and tranquility: a place to disconnect from the humdrum of everyday life, you have found it.
Located on the sunset side of Pantelleria, just 2kms from the coast and with amazing sea views, Corte Pantesca I is ideal for couples or families. Everything about the accommodation exudes simple perfection and there is a real sense of living within nature.
Corte Pantesca I is part of a two dammusi retreat. Corte Pantesca I & II can be booked together for larger groups.
Explore the villa location.
Corte Pantesca is all about nature. The interior and exterior effortlessly combine: you’ll feel wholly at one with the stunning landscape.
There are two en suite double bedrooms: the master enjoys beautiful sea views, and the second bedroom has an ancient barefoot grape squeezer in the corner and direct access to the terrace. Both are furnished with king size beds and completed with Frette linen.
There are various chillout terraces from which to enjoy the magnificent sunset. The Cannizzo (open-air shaded patio) is perfect for alfresco dining. With the rustic kitchen and BBQ you can also prepare meals outside. Where will you dine tonight? In the cannizzo or under the stars?
The pool (10×5 meters) and decked terrace (85m2) and a shaded area (46m2) with sun loungers is shared with Corte Pantesca II. However, the villa offers complete privacy with extensive grounds. An outdoor shower is for the exclusive use of Corte Pantesca I.
The accommodation has its own private access and parking area. The space is intimate without feeling secluded.
When you book Corte Pantesca I you can opt for dedicated staff who are able to respond to your needs quickly and efficiently.
Hostess Paolina can be at the villa to welcome you on your arrival. She has an in-depth knowledge of Pantelleria and is a great source for advice and local recommendations.

“Corte Pantesca is a beautiful and relaxing place to stay on Pantelleria. We stayed in Corte Pantesca I, a light and airy, spacious villa which has been designed in a carefully minimalist style. The pool area is a restful space amid the splendidly laid out garden. If you’re staying on Pantelleria, this is a very special place.”

“We stayed at Corte Pantesca I this summer and found a great mix between this beautiful villa, the sun, the nature expressed by the lush colourful and sustainable garden, relaxation and spectacular sunsets. The welcome and the level of service that was offered to us was perfect, so that we have booked again for the following year. Thank you!”
