The Pantelleria Pantelleria of Lauro is a comfortable accommodation in the most beautiful district of the so-called Black Pearl or Island Wind. The Valley of Grace, in fact it is exposed to the southwest of the island, and given its conformation is sheltered from the prevailing winds: west and south wind.
The house of ancient origin, built in dry stone, is very scenic and its position is possible - at sunset some afternoons - see the coast of Africa and the beacon of Kelibia.
The dammuso, which comfortably accommodates four people (five with a possible cot), is furnished with simplicity but good taste, consistent with the nature of an old country house that overlooks the most beautiful sea in the Mediterranean. The oldest of the house, with vaulted ceilings, is composed of a large bedroom overlooking a terrace which can also be used as input. Between this bedroom and another smaller shaped alcove classic, there are quite a comfortable bathroom with shower and a space of disengagement.
From this center of the house leads to the large veranda living that "floats on the green of the orange and olive trees and from which you access the stairs leading to the terrace equipped for sunbathing or for lunches and dinners. This space equipped with ducchena (the classic outdoor session of the houses of Pantelleria) covered with cane roof, is equipped with sink and barbecue, and it is a place that offers space and quiet for a siesta, for an aperitif or cool - as you said - for outdoor dining.
The veranda room - also with panoramic views of great beauty between the sea, the rock and the green of the surrounding countryside - is equipped with a comfortable desk area with sink and four fires. And from the couch-sofa you can have the sensation of floating on a flying carpet of branches that lead to the sea.
The dammuso - restored a few months - has doors with mosquito net for the detection of air and have the constant feeling of contact with a wild and soft at the same time the island.
No is a luxury residence, but despite the spartan air is warm and welcomed in the summit of the Valley of Grace as if it were in a niche he shelters from the wind, but given the height to about 100 feet above the sea is in a context never stuffy even in hot weather. The Pantelleria is equipped with a fan, and in cold seasons of a stove. There is a stereo system (for which it is advisable to bring your own CDs), but does not have television or Internet connection.
All linen supplied to Dammuso del Lauro is new and sterilized at every change of host. The same goes for the dishes and kitchen amenities.
The surrounding countryside is typical of the island, with olive trees, vine of raisins, oranges, lemons and apples, pears and obviously prickly pears. From neighboring farmers can source the fresh eggs, local vegetables, and tumma (typical cheese from cow's milk), fresh, first salt or variously seasoned.
Il dammuso sorge al termine di una stradina di campagna percorribile in 5 minuti di auto, distanza sufficiente a renderlo completamente isolato dai (pochi) rumori provenienti dalla strada.
E' sospeso su di una collina, circondato da coltivazioni di capperi, pomodori ed olivi. Sullo sfondo l'intenso blu del mare. Di notte la completa assenza di luci permette una visione del cielo stellato di incredibile bellezza.
L'arredo della casa è essenziale ma completo. Una terrazza panoramica, attrezzata anche con barbecue, permette di gustare all'aperto gli incredibili sapori dell'isola.
In circa 15 minuti di auto si raggiungono il porticciolo di Scauri e, nell'altra direzione, il centro di Pantelleria.
