Region Description: Sicily read more..

Pantelleria, after Malta, is the largest of the islands surrounding Sicily. The island enjoys a mediterrenean climate with hot summers and mild winters. It is a wonderful place for those who love fishing or underwater photography. The inhabitants (7400) are known for their warm hospitality. Touring in Pantelleria means, walking through the path in the natural reserve and looking for Porcini mushroom, going to the natural Sauna in the cave of "Benikulà" or a warm bath in the natural hot spring of "Gadir". In the summer season you can rent a boat to visit the many bays accessible only from the sea or to visit the many marine caves throughout the seacoast. For dive lovers in the island there are several diving centre that organize daily excursions to discover the undersea world. A lovely village is Scauri, where you can find grocery, bakery, post office and a pharmacy and believe or not some gift shops! Scauri also offers the only cinema on the island which is managed by the local priests. In the area there is also a very good restaurant called "La Nicchia" which we highly recommend for its grilled jumbo shrimp (gamberoni) with the "ambrosia", the nectar of gods, the natural honey from zibibbo grapes. Near Scauri there is a beach called "Punta Tre Pietre" easy to locate since you can still see the skeleton of an abandoned hotel. Also if you go to "La Vela" restaurant ask about the place to swim, you'll reach an almost secret place! Another nice village is Tracino, where you can find a grocery and a very nice restaurant "I Mulini". Nearby you will find a scuba-diving centre and a cool bar for some beers or good fresh fruit salads. Ask the diving center about renting a boat so you can explore the beautiful coast line of the island. The typical house on the island is called: the Dammuso, it is the result of an Arabic civilization, to which we in Sicily are grateful, inasmuch as one of the more successful periods on the island occurred during the domination by these people. Above all, in matters of the environment and urban development the “dammuso” arose as a rural structure, and it reflects the peculiarities of this island: the wind, the heat, the scarcity of rains and the wealth of local lava material. All the elements that characterize these constructions have a specific function. The cupola roofs serve to collect rainwater in reserviors; the thick walls, up to 1.40 meter thick, provide insulation against the heat of summer and the cold of winter. Likewise, the small size of the windows and doors. Nearly always next to a “dammuso” is found a circular construction in lava rocks, within which fruit trees grow, protected therefore from the incessant winds that blow over the island. Today the respect for this tradition, coupled with the creativity of a few architects, has transformed these agricultural buildings into completely charming and unique houses. The absence of elements common to our daily lives renders the experience exceptional: such as no doors between the rooms but a succession of alcoves and winding corridors inside and not to mention the external spaces… prepare your eyes for a singular and inimitable vision.
