People who like traveling to secluded destinations rarely take into account the Mediterranean sea, wrongly considered overcrowded and noisy everywhere. The island of Pantelleria located midway between Sicily and Tunisia escapes this common view. A little bit out of reach, the island compensates the traveler with a breathtaking landscape, where (unusual especially for the south of Italy) human interventions have almost improved its beauty. Tenuta Borgia is a marvelous sample of this statement. An ancient independent country mansion surrounded by small hamlets typical of Pantelleria (Dammusi) restored and made into private suites with their own garden, some with private large Jacuzzi pools. All details are scrupulously designed in full obeisance to historical crafting tradition. The main pool from which one can swim viewing the African sea is carpeted with ancient Sicilian tiles making Portuguese azulejos jealous. This spot enriched by blooming hibiscus, olive and caper trees is the epitome of Mediterranean glory. After one has fully enjoyed the dolce far niente, the island offers horse and bike riding, trekking, sailing and diving, all activities never mixing with the crowd. Unique atmosphere, essential elegance, warm hospitality turn tenuta Borgia into an unforgettable Mediterranean vacation experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Overlooking Pantelleria's sea, in the stretch of coast running from Scauri to the Elephant's Arch cliff, 12 hectares lovingly cultivated, are the heart of Tenuta Borgia, the most charming estate of Pantelleria island. Seven Dammusi wisely restored that have kept intact the original structure, furnished with taste and equipped with all amenities, offer its guests the experience of living in a precious place where nature and culture reaches its perfect blend and expression. Ultimate Mediterranean charme. The decor is extremely refined and original: each piece was chosen by the owner Rosa Borgia Baroness Collice who has juxtaposed designer furniture, antiques and art objects. Ancient hand-decorated majolica tiles increase the charm to the floors, to the ducchene - the typical Pantelleria's bench - and to the large swimming pool and Jacuzzi pool. Sophisticated details such as hemp linen, bathrobes and rimmed towels, personalized porcelain tableware and high quality appliances complete the Dammusi comfort. Indoor spaces interact with outdoor to patios, pools, terraces and gardens.The Arabian garden, the largest in Pantelleria, secretly protects precious plants while plam and pine trees provide shade for strolls in the estate while scented and colorful shrubs and olive trees add the magic to this incomparable spot. ... more less
