Villa Il Tropico is a wonderful estate situated in the Sicilian island of Pantelleria, in the heart of the Mediterranean. It is is the result of a wise collaboration between the architect Gabriella Giuntoli and the owner, woman of great taste.
The estate is, in fact, characterized by vibrant colours, the atmosphere of the Mahgreb, intense nature and the incredible blue of the Pantellerian sea,stretching out to coast of North Africa.
Villa Nemo consists of 4 “dammusi”, ancient Pantellerian buildings made of lava stones. The dammusi are surrounded by a large garden (about 7 hectares) and all converge on a huge eliptical swimming pool, equipped with sunbeds. The pool is surrounded by a brilliant white solarium (though there is shade for those who want it). The sea views from here are incredible.
Within the original cisterns next to the dammusi, exotic ‘relax areas’ have been created, strewn with cushions. The central pavilion is the perfect place for an aperitif at sunset, or a magical dinner lit by lanterns.
Villa Nemo is thus an enchanting place whose charm has often attracted famous guests, such as movie stars or international music stars.
The property, made up of 4 dammusi, can accommodate up to 11 people for a total of 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.
Dammuso 1 (the largest one): The largest dammuso (main house) looks onto the garden, with a beautiful fountain. It consists of a large living room, TV room, dining room, three bedrooms (a double with ensuite bathroom, a twin and another room with French bed sharing an outdoor bathroom), and a large, well equipped kitchen. The kitchen opens onto a large Tunisian-style patio, furnished with a large table and sofas.
Dammuso 2: A romantic ‘avenue’, wittily called by the owners as the ‘avenue of love’, leads to this dammuso 2, a lovely guest-house comprising a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom, a patio and a swimming pool.
Dammuso 3: About 100 metres from the main house, with a private entrance, is the dammuso 3. It consists of a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom, kitchenette, terrace and solarium.
Dammuso 4: The dammuso 4, below the main house and a short distance from the swimming pool, is immersed in the olive grove. It has a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom.
At guests' disposal a small herb garden.

Villa Il Tropico is situated between Nikà and Rekhale, on the beautiful island of Pantelleria, 100 km southwest of Sicily.
The main towns on the island are central Pantelleria and Scauri, which are the island’s two ports of arrival, but there are also little hamlets whose names still recall their Arab domination, such as Khamma, Kattibugale, Kariuscia and Bukkuram.
Pantelleria has far more to offer than just the fabulous sea: beautiful archaeological sites (such as the area of Mursìa and Cimillia), unspoilt villages and, for sports lovers, several trekking trails on the “Montagna Grande” (836 m high).
For nature lovers, we recommend a visit to the Pantelleria Natural Oriented Reserve (characterized by Mediterranean scrub and many fauna species) and the crater lake "Specchio di Venere" with its hot springs and natural mud baths.
Moreover there is Gadir, a small village by the sea, appreciated since ancient times for its thermal waters, confined in tanks carved in stone.
Lastly, we recommend to sample the cuisine of Pantelleria which combines Sicilian characteristics and Maghrebi world. Among the typical dishes you will find: the "tumma", a fresh cheese; the "taboulì", a variation of cous-cous; the "merghez", a beef sausage, abundantly spiced with chili pepper; the "bacio pantesco", a cake made of ricotta cheese.
Scauri (5 km), Pantelleria centre (11 km), Pantelleria Airport (10 km).
