Where time stands still
A soothing hideaway retreat featuring two beautifully renovated dammusi whose sustainable design respects the local environment and reflects the essence of Pantelleria tradition.
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 is the place to ditch your phone and appreciate some downtime in an organic paradise setting. Our luxury dammusi accommodation is for purists only.
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
Located on the sunset side of Pantelleria, just 2kms from the coast and with amazing sea views, Corte Pantesca is tucked away in a 1 hectare estate. It’s the epitome of rural perfection where you feel the harmonious relationship between architecture and nature.
Hewn out of local lavastone and crowned with a white domed rooftop, the dammusi rise serenely from the sun baked earth; thick walls keep the baking heat out during the summer and the interiors warm during the winter.
The accommodation is ideal for intimate friends and family groups who appreciate the privacy of separate quarters combined with shared dining and chill out terraces – both shaded and sun-drenched, where your group can become one.
Start your day with a refreshing plunge in the glistening 10×5 private swimming pool and spend the morning lounging on the wooden deck. The sweet outdoor waterfall shower is perfect for cooling off in the blazing midday sun.
Days at Corte Pantesca always end on a high as you marvel at the magnificent Pantelleria sunsets whilst sipping your perfectly made Italian aperitif.
If you are seeking privacy and tranquillity: a place to disconnect from the humdrum of everyday life, you have found it.

“Corte Pantesca exceeded every expectation we had for a vacation rental. It was incredibly beautiful, stylishly designed, very clean and looked after. We rented Corte Pantesca with friends and the pool area and outdoor dining area were our favorite ways to spend our days. Both houses offer privacy and areas for alone time, and the pool offered space to come together as a group. But the best part of our experience by far was the host. She picked us up from the airport, organized groceries to be delivered, helped us get our rental car, made restaurant reservations for us and much more. I would highly recommend staying at Corte Pantesca, and we look forward to returning.”

“We stayed at Corte Pantesca 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!”
