Villa Rekhale is an ancient Pantellerian building called “Dammuso”, made of lava stones and carefully restored, while preserving the original structure.
The entire villa is the result of a wise restructuring by Gabriella Giuntoli, the architect responsible for restoring houses on the island for celebrities like Giorgio Armani, Carole Bouquet and Montalbano star, Luca Zingaretti.
The property, located just 2 km from the sea, is surrounded by a large Mediterranean park (12 hectares), with palms, pines and fruit trees (guests are welcome to help themselves).
Within this enchanted landscape you will find a unique architectural relic, a ‘giardino Pantesco’, an historic Pantellerian garden enclosed by high walls of lava stones, where plants (some of them rare) are still watered by the original irrigation system.
Moreover the outdoor areas are enhanced by a swimming pool (12x6 m), entirely covered with reclaimed majolica tiles. The pool features a large sunbathing area and a shaded space with table and chaises-longues.
Lastly, at guests' disposal an useful patio, equipped with wicker armchairs and dining table for 14 people, ideal for alfresco meals, surrounded by the Mediterranean nature.
Villa Rekhale has also been chosen as the location for "A bigger splash" movie (2015), starring Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes.
The property (250 sqm) is divided into 2 separate buildings (one dedicated to the living area and the other to the sleeping area), ensuirng the utmost privacy and tranquillity. The villa can accommodate up to 8 people for a total of 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.
Furnishing throughout is extremely refined and original, an intelligent blend of upcycling, recycling, retro and antiques.
In the first building you will find a large living room and a spacious kitchen, equipped with larder, dishwasher, oven, microwave, coffee maker.
Following a dining room characterized by airy alcoves in one of which there is a reading area with library and armchairs, satellite TV and electric piano. The dining room opens onto a panoramic terrace shaded by a roof of traditional bamboo canes.
The second building is dedicated to the sleeping area, consisting of 4 bedrooms (two doubles and two twins), all with ensuite bathroom with shower and ceiling fans. Two bedrooms also feature a small seating area and a private balcony.
Included free Wi-Fi and ceiling fans. The villa is not equipped with air conditioning. Pets are not allowed.
Typical Pantellerian building, a real timeless place, ideal for a group of friends wishing to relive the magical atmosphere of the ancient rural world. The outdoor areas are characterized by the charming swimming pool covered with majolica tiles and the Pantellerian garden, where one can admire several precoius plants and a rose garden.

Villa Rekhale is situated on the island of Pantelleria, 100 km southwest of Sicily.
More specifically, the property is located on one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline (Rekhale), between the old village of Scauri and the Elephant Rock, just 2 km from the sea.
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 airport (9 km); Pantelleria centre (11 km).
