DIMORA CALA DEL POZZO
IS AN EXCLUSIVE BOUTIQUE HOTEL THAT HAS MAINTAINED THE IDENTITY OF A TYPICAL RURAL HOUSE WHICH DATES FROM THE END OF THE 19TH CENTURY
THE NUMBERS AROUND US
of the little farmhouse,
one of the first rural houses on the island, built entirely
of Favignana tuff stone
and perhaps more, of plants that are
typical of Mediterranean vegetation adorn
the gardens of the Dimora
to reach the coast
and plunge into a sea
that dazzles you with
infinite shades of blue.
each with its own style and character.
Where attention to detail
helps to create a unique atmosphere.

YOU BREATHE THE HISTORY OF THESE PLACES
A SMALL FARMHOUSE
A small farmhouse (‘baglio’ or ‘mannara’) where some of the island’s earliest agricultural activities began, and which today still reigns solitary in one of the most gorgeous bays in Favignana, on the northwest coast of the island.
Our goal was to breathe life back into this long-abandoned place, preserving its identity and the magical atmosphere that has always characterised this place, in a location of stunning natural beauty.
IL PRIMO BOUTIQUE
Il sogno che è diventato presto progetto che ha portato alla
nascita del nostro primo boutique hotel Dimora dell’Olivastro
e dell’azienda agricola biologica Terre del Favonio.
Il nostro desiderio è stato quello di ridare vita a questo
luogo abbandonato da tempo, conservando la sua identità
e la magica atmosfera che qui si respira da sempre,
all’interno di un contesto di naturale, inebriante bellezza.
THE COURTYARD AND
THE RESTORATION WORK
The history of this place has been re-established by preserving the architectural layout of the courtyard, tracing it wherever it was possible, using original materials, and choosing the traditional elements of the area: exposed-face local stone (tuff); salvaged stone paving slabs; majolica tiles; and Marsala terracotta.
The typical vegetation of the coastal area, low-lying Mediterranean scrub, has been painstakingly preserved and enriched with the plants that have always distinguished these places: agaves, dwarf palms, prickly pears, and olive trees.
