Torn between praise and keeping this "our little secret", it is only fair to Daniela to share the wonderful time we had in both her home / dammusi and in Pantelleria in general.

The House:
Firstly, the property description and photos on Tripadvisor do not do justice to the beauty of the location and comfort of the home.

Located on the side of a volcanic crater with breath-taking views of Lago di Venere (The Mirror of Venus) and The Med, Daniela's dammusi is first and foremost a family home. It is not a sterile designer pad but rather a extremely comfortable home away from home. Everything needed for a family stay is at your disposal.

There's a perfect kitchen with gas hob, electric oven and microwave. There's also a BBQ area just outside. The two main double bedrooms both have en-suite showers. There is also an additional bedroom just of the kitchen / sitting room equipped with a double bed and bathroom & shower just outside. There is no air conditioning - just ceiling fans - but thanks to the elevation the nights are surprisingly cool and breezy. Definitely bring a cardigan with you.

The deck area in front of the main house & pool are both fantastic. The views are incredible and there's ample space for lounging, sun bathing and dining. The shaded areas also come in extremely handy. We found ourselves spending most of our time outside.

The small pool is just below the deck area. WARNING: there's a few rocky steps down, so small children definitely need to be supervised. It's not deep but perfect for splashing children and parents in need of cool down.

Location:
As mentioned, the house is perched on the mountainside in Bugeber with glorious lake and sea views - about 15 minutes from both the airport and Pantelleria town.

You will need to hire a car. At first the road up seems frightening, but after a couple of journeys it was smooth sailing. All amenities can be found in Pantelleria town. There's a couple of decent sized fridges in the house so you can definitely stock up if you want to minimise your journeys in.

Communication:
From the start Daniela was amazingly efficient in responding to questions and queries. Although Daniela is based in Rome, she ensured that someone met us at the airport and got us to the house safely. Pages of info were sent offering advice on day trips, dining and must sees. Any hiccups during our stay were resolved immediately and without fuss. Daniela was always available for advice and it was obvious that she wanted our stay to be as pleasurable as possible.

Pantelleria is not a destination for designer shopping or exciting nightlife. But if you're after rest, relaxation and staggering beauty Pantelleria delivers in spades. English is not widely spoken but the locals are genuinely patient and great fun. We didn't have a single bad experience and can not wait to return.

In short, we absolutely loved our two weeks in Pantelleria. Staying in Daniela's dammusi was a singularly amazing experience!
