- Dammusi and Suites
- Transfers from/to airport/port included
Situated on the island of Pantelleria in the San Francesco district, not far from the Phoenician Acropolis of ancient Cossyra and just a short walk from an important archaeological zone, the Acropoli Resort can easily be reached from the island’s port and airport. At sunset the splendid silhouette of the mountains of Tunisia can be glimpsed on the horizon. Apart from the beautiful sea, there are interesting secondary volcanic phenomena to be seen on the island.
The main construction of the Acropoli Resort is a historic building spread over two floors: the ground floor dates back to 1700, while the first floor was built in 1875, and there are four apartments altogether. Two more independent apartments, one without architectural barriers, are situated in the Dammuso garden and also date back to 1700. Careful renovation has created a splendid, comfortable Resort which preserves the historic charm of the original architecture.
All apartments are in the traditional local Dammuso style: thick dry-stone walls skilfully cut by hand, vaulted ceilings and domed roofs. Paintings on the walls and antique pieces decorate these airy, comfortable rooms, equipped with a kitchen, minibar and private bathroom.
