Le Case del Principe Pantelleria
Le Case del Principe are located on the beautiful and enchanting island of Pantelleria, in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, between Sicily and North Africa.
Each of our dammusi rental homes are fully equipped with a kitchen and a large terrace overlooking the sea. Our houses are simply furnished with a tasteful island style to make your stay as comfortable and welcoming as possible. Every house has a spacious terrace equipped with a dining table, chairs and deck-chairs, an outdoor shower and a barbecue.
Upon arrival, you will be welcomed with a basket of fresh fruit and a bottle of our family wine (Sallier de La Tour – Tasca d’Almerita). Every bedroom is set up with bed linens and bath towels. Please request when you book, if you require additional housekeeping during your stay.

Le Case del Principe are tucked away on a private area of the northwest coast, only 6km from the town center and 3km from the island's airport. These houses were built in the 1970's by Prince Paolo Sallier de La Tour and his wife Costanza, who created this little oasis of peace and relaxation in the place they loved. Our location is one of the only on the entire island where you have direct access down to the sea, just outside of your doorstep.
We have seven traditional stone "dammusi", each far enough from the others to ensure its own privacy and silence. We have options for 2 guests in the romantic ancient lava stone dammuso, small houses for 2-4 guests, and larger dammusi for groups of 5-7. Le Case del Principe can accommodate groups of friends, large families, travelers or workshop/retreat groups of any kind. Our six dammusi are near but separate from each other, thus giving the opportunity to organize meeting times, aperitivo, activities and free time for groups as a whole, but also to enjoy your own space, listening to the silence and breathing the scent of the sea in Pantelleria.
Place to visit
Pantelleria offers breathtaking views. Since it is an oasis of varied and luxurious nature, the entire island has been named an Italian national park.
Enjoy trekking or taking walks in unspoiled nature, relax with mud and natural hot springs at the Specchio di Venere lake (within walking distance from the houses), look for flamingos, or plunge into the deep waters to refresh on a hot day, taste the island's delicacies and the autochthonous volcanic wines.
You will not forget the intensity of the blue sea, the magic at sunrise, and the sight of the African coasts on a clear day. Archeological areas are scattered across the whole island including settlements from the Bronze Age, a 16th century BC village, megalithic tombs, and a Punic acropolis. Each district hides a story and many traditions to discover, a unique experience that will fascinate you every step of the way.
Prices range from €35 to €65 per person per night.
