This gem of a handesigned place by Roberta and Tommasso should be in all the interieur magazines, Dammusso dei Turchi is even more beautiful in real life. The national reserve around have lots of animals, birds and if not at least the falcones make you feel that you are living in a natural dream, so rare these days. The chef Angela will make you discover a cuisine rare to most people , and be sure that she take you snail hunting along the cliffs.Her hospitality make everybody feel relaxed and fulfilled. They say you cry upon arrival in Pantelleria, and by sure you cry when you have to leave Pantelleria, and Dammuso dei Turchi, tusen takk !

Staying at Il Dammuso dei Turchi is like living in a dream. Everything is perfect, and it is beyond anything I could have ever imagined. The property itself is incredible, including the amazing glamping experience in the vineyards, where the millions of stars shine so brightly over your head and the sound of the sea is just footsteps away. The king-sized bed in the tent is so fluffy and welcoming, it calls you to sleep every night after a beautiful and relaxing day on the island. The ancient dammuso is also a gem, and it was a delight to spend some nights enjoying the peacefulness of sleeping in a volcanic stone house that was built in the 1800s. Angela, the owner and our host on the property was an angel. She made sure to take care of everything we could possibly need, and went above and beyond to make our trip the best holiday we have ever experienced. Her cooking is divine and rivals some of the best restaurants I have had the pleasure of dining at all over the world. She uses local ingredients and everything is made fresh each day. I have never been pampered and taken care of as much as at Dammuso dei Turchi. The grotto, just footsteps away, is in a protected UNESCO heritage site, and the waters and snorkeling are amazing! So many fish and such a refreshing and relaxing swim. I loved our holiday at Dammuso dei Turchi and have fallen in love with the property, Pantelleria and the entire family at Dammuso dei Turchi (Angela, Tommasso and Roberta!). We will definitely be back and can't wait!!

Staying at Dommaso dei Turchi was probably my favorite holiday ever. A holiday where time fades away, letting the horizon taking you out of bed and rythming your day, from the first bath to the last. A holiday that is both simple and sophisticated, where every detail counts yet doesn't matter anymore. A paradise made true by Angela, who turned this place into a true destination of its own by being such an incredible host. Beyond her cooking that rivals the best tables of Sicily (my words can't make as much justice as my girlfriend's pictures), Angela made us feel like family. I hope we made such guests, and I wish I could speak more than 3 words in Spanish and barely 2 in Italian! Grazie (1) Mille (2) Angela and I wish I get my Pantelleria passport sometime soon to come back! <3

Couldn't be a better place to spend time in Sicily. Even those who detest the idea of a campsite would cry to even be in this place! Had the best stay, lovely place, people and area. Thank you!
I stayed her for a week in June with some friends and our kids. We were all in all 6 people which was perfect. We flew from Copenhagen and had a night in Venice before flying to Pantelleria next morning. We did not know what to expect but were completely blown away. The property is so amazing and leaves you speechless - the photos just not even come close to reality...the view, the terrace, the cove with the crystal clear waters etc - but the real gem was the tent in the vineyard that the owner leaves out over the summer. To sleep there with my 2 kids was an experience that will never be forgotten. It is a tent - but you feel like you are in a super suite of a Four Season Hotel. Huge king size bed, sofa and romantic lighting with two candles chandeliers! On top of that in the middle of the vineyard - chic is such a poor word to explain and get the feeling of this. It HAS to be experienced.
We hired Angela for cooking some days. She does not speak English but with google translate and our little Italian knowledge it worked out perfect. She cooks regional Italian food - home cooked meals and as I always love to tell a cook to surprise me with something extraordinary - she even got us fresh sea urchins and cooked an unforgettable pasta for us. Angela is an incredible host, cook and she made our vacation just that little bit better that you always look for when you go on vacation....local, charming sweet and so friendly. She even babysat for our kids one night (9,7,6) "THANK YOU Angela - Vediamo la prossima estate!!!"
This place makes you feel like you are in a private hotel - the service by Angela, the amenities, beach bag provided, swimming equipment and I can go on and on. We did find out that the owner of the villa owns a 5 star hotel on the Caribbean coast of Mexico which shines through with nothing missing at all. You want to have a carefree vacation...feel like royalty...sleep like a sheik...and smile all day like a rock-star - this is where you go next time on vacation....!!!
