Discovering the island

Zinedi Farm is an ideal starting point for naturalistic walks or horse-rides along the old mule tracks which lead to “Specchio del Venere” known for its beneficial thermal sulphureous waters and muds.

Alternatively, you can go towards the inner part of Pantelleria, admire the variety of the landscapes and its vegetation, an authentic and direct contact with nature.

A complete immersion into the colours, perfumes and tastes of cultivated or spontaneously grown fruits (Zibibbo grapes, mulberries, blackberries, blueberries, arbutus berries), the wild woods on Montagna Grande (836 metres high), or the uncontaminated crystal clear sea in the middle of the Mediterranean.

The coast of “The island of Wind” is rocky: the numerous caves allow to shelter the boats and to dip yourself into the crystal clear Mediterranean sea.

For archaeology lovers, Pantelleria is rich of treasures to be discovered and visited: tombs, Phoenician cisterns, obsidian rocks, Punic-Roman acropolis and funerary buildings called "Sesi", testimony that the mysterious Neolithic population lived here, traces of which can only be found here.

The volcanic activity is evident by numerous thermal springs that can be found along the coast of Pantelleria: at Gadir, Nikà, Sateria, Scauri and the lake “Specchio di Venere”. The spectacular Phoenician saunas are dug out of the rocks and have been used continuously during the centuries. There are many fumaroles that let out steam such as at the Favare and Bagno Asciutto at Sibà.

The predominant vegetation is the evergreen wood that extends over more or less 1.500 hectares, composed of cluster pines, called here in dialect "Zappinu" and Aleppo pine, called "Deda".
