If travelling means filling up our souls with memories and experiences, home is a place that keeps them and guards them: this is what makes special a holiday in a dammuso in Pantelleria, a happy mix of both dimensions. The Tibetan name given to this dammuso, “Shambala”, is not accidental as it means “a place of happiness”: a place of rare beauty, an outpost from where to admire the sea and the mountain with a 180-degree view that fills up mind and soul.
The dammuso Shambala is located in contrada Rekhale, on the south-west coast of Pantelleria and can host up to 6 people in 3 double bedrooms, each one with ensuite bathroom. The structure is dipped into a beautiful garden with Mediterranean vegetation, palm trees and bougainvillea and has a sea-view and a view over the gentle hills of the island. Still outdoors, there’s a gorgeous swimming pool with solarium area, perfect to enjoy relaxing moments in total peace and privacy and a pantescan garden. Finally, a covered terrace, sheltered from the north wind, that has a wide external kitchen with a pizza oven.
The interior has wide rooms, levelled on different floors, with a special focus on the fittings, furniture and accessories: there’s a wide living room with two sofas, a dining area and a kitchen, all of them exceptionally fitted with special care on the details, unique and distinctive. From the living room there’s an access to the covered terrace, with a dining table and a wide relax area filled with carpets, cushions and seats. The view from here is absolutley breath-taking.
The dammuso has three bedrooms, also very well fitted, each one of them with ensuite bathroom. The first one is located on the same floor as the shared spaces, while there’s a beautiful “library-stair” to walk in order to reach the second and the third rooms. The second room has a queen size bed and a private terrace.
