Zash

It's a Monday. I want to escape the working week. Time to runaway to a luxury getaway faraway, at least in my dreams. Zash is, the the hotel's own words "a country boutique hotel where historical fragments meet a contemporary taste, in an 'elegantly quiet' project, to let nature's physicality emerge, to respect our past vestige and to satisfy our traveller's needs. A place which is refined in its rooms, rural in its context and vital for the soul."

Old meets new in a startling juxtaposition that makes each element stronger. Clean, minimalist lines enhance the crumbling stone shell of the original building. Perched on the hillside amidst citrus trees Zash is in eastern Sicily in the province of Catania. A building of contrasts just like Sicily is a land of contrasts, hulking Mt Etna and crystal blue seas, barren lava and rich agricultural land, where the warmth of stone meets sleek manmade finishes, rugged and luxe.

Beautiful place. We were just up the hill from here, in Taormina. It was this time of year and my mind has been drifting to those memories. I can't believe it's been ten years since I was in this part of the world. What stunning and serene accommodations Zash would be.

Absolutely fabulous and refreshing. Love the simplicity of this place and the style, simple et well done. I will like to go there for a WE. It's an inspiration.
Vraiment beau !! du style, de la simplicité et l'architecture donne une âme à la structure et au design. Je vivrais dans cet endroit tellement il est beau.
