Villa Grande

Staying at the filmset location of the Movie 'The Bigger Splash' will be an unforgettable experience!

Villa Grande, declared “monument” by the Sovrintendenza ai Beni Culturali e al Paesaggio (the Italian Superintendence of Cultural Heritage and Landscape), is a beautiful and significant testimony of the dry-stone architecture of the Mediterranean area. Owned by an Italian Noble family, it now is a true unique holiday location on one of the most special Sicilian Islands: Pantelleria. 

Surrounded by the typical trees and flowers of Pantelleria island, Villa Grande dominates the estate with its mighty walls and its soft domes. Family antiques combined with modern furniture, light sculptures of contemporary art, decorate large halls and small intimate alcoves. The patios and the gardens preserve pieces that bring back to the ancient farming traditions of the estate. The pool area invites to unwind under the pergola; comfortable seats overlook the garden of hybiscus and the large pool, tiled with antique majolica, stretches between the sky and the sea.

Leisure & Activities

The sea around Pantelleria is rich and can be explored on your own or with expert divers. Instructors also guide visitors to discover the seabed, its colorful flora and fauna still abundant and varied. Even the simple snorkeling, however, reveals striking underwater landscapes. If you want to explore Pantelleria island by sea, you can rent a boat with or without skipper in one of the two ports of the island (Scauri is at 5 km from the estate; Pantelleria city is at 19 km). The stretch of coast more spectacular is the one that runs from Scauri to the Arco dell’Elefante, where the property nestles. Boats depart from Pantelleria city for a full sightseeing tour around the island stopping in some of the most picturesque coves for a swim and the lunch on board offers local mouthwatering recipes, complete the awesome experience. In Pantelleria there are no sandy beaches except for the white shores of the lake Specchio di Venere; there are neither cabins nor umbrellas on the coasts and bars are quite rare. The lack of comfortable beach facilities that normally allows people to reach any place, is a choice desired by the Panteschi to preserve their landscape and save Pantelleria island from the aggression of insensitive tourism. The coast is dramatically beautiful with its lava and basalt rocks diving deep into the sea, remind us that we are on a volcanic island.

All activities like cooking classes, massages, boat tours etc can be arranged via the property manager.

Supermarket: Restaurant: Pharmacy:

Pantelleria also called « the daughter of the wind » for an undeniable reason, can be very windy so ferries may struggle to keep their time schedule but planes do much better! Also Pantelleria is not so small with a 84 km2 diameter and hundreds of kilometers of roads maping it and hiding its secrets … You must rent a vehicle if you want to discover it all, go to the restaurant at night, get your lake natural spa or try every single marvelous cliff ! Pantelleria has a very nice well renovated National Airport, PNL and we highly recommend anyone coming on holidays to book a flight (not a ferry) and follow these pieces of advice . Ferries can easily get cancelled or delayed. If your arrival gets delayed we will not be able to reimburse or postpone your stay. Also note there are NO taxis services (as you are used to) at the airport – You must book a vehicle, a car, scooter (125 only), e-bike (Lovely experience) or a driver AS SOON AS you book your itinerary! Last minute organization will not be much rewarded especially in high season!. But we can help you for all the logistics.

Your villa and Covid-19

To prevent any possible spread of Covid-19 and to enable you to enjoy a safe and relaxing holiday, all our villas are cleaned to the highest standard possible, and according to the latest Italian health and safety regulations.

Perfect hygiene: to ensure an exceptional level of hygiene in all our villas, we’ve worked with our owners to create a Covid-19 villa management protocol. Based on recommendations from the World Health Organisation, and in compliance with current Italian national law, this protocol goes above and beyond our usual rigorous cleaning standards.

Prior to arrival, your villa will have been fully sanitised, including all surfaces, objects, kitchen items, curtains, sofas, throws, pillows, toys, and in and around the pool. You are welcome to ask for a detailed list of the entire cleaning procedure we do after each departure and before welcoming new guests to the property.

The owner of this house has complied with the following standards:

  • To ensure the necessary information concerning social distancing and the use of masks is available to all guests
  • To guarantee availability of and accessibility to hand hygiene systems with hydro-alcoholic solutions and soaps in all inside areas of, and pertaining to, the villa
  • To guarantee cleaning and disinfection of all areas according to national authority guidelines. Further information is available on request
  • For the swimming pool: to guarantee the efficacy of the water treatments, while respecting legal limits (the parameter for free active chlorine in the pool is between 1.0 – 1.5 mg/l; combined chlorine ≤ 0.40 mg/l; pH 6.5 – 7.5 or equivalent oxygen)
  • For air conditioning systems: to guarantee the air re-circulation function is switched off and, according to the manufacturer’s instructions, with the plant in off-mode, to clean the air filters of the heating/cooling plants that use heat pumps, fan coils and convectors, at the end of each stay
