Location

Situated in the heart of the archaeological park on Sicily's Pantelleria island, Parco dei Sesi offers an inspiring fusion of nature, history, and artistry.


Pantelleria holds a profound significance, existing as a testament to the island's cultural heritage. Its ancient ruins and artifacts connect to the civilizations that once flourished here, depicting stories of trade, migration, and innovation.


Parco dei Sesi maintains itself as a guest house, farm, and artist residency. And despite its remoteness, reaching the island is more convenient than one might imagine, thanks to regular ferry connections and occasional flights from Sicily's mainland.

Design

Built on five hectares, Parco dei Sesi invites guests to immerse themselves in a space where design and nature converge, where the past and present harmonize, creating an experience conducive to creativity and mindfulness.


Through and through, the property is an expression of nature's grandeur and is positioned to gaze into the distance of the sea. On clear days, a glimpse of the Tunisian coastline might even grace the horizon. The use of black volcanic stone pays homage to the island's geological origins, imparting a timeless quality to the structure. It effortlessly blends into its scenic backdrop, forging a symbiotic connection with the land and the sea.


Inside, the owners' vision of fostering peace and conviviality comes to life through thoughtful, curated design that relies heavily on wabi-sabi elements.
