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.

Dobrodošli u Prugu

All the hard work is done. The doors are open. Guests are arriving. Welcome to Pruga, two acres of peace and quiet and bed and breakfast. After many years in the UK, Andrijana and Vanja returned to Croatia, to the idyllic countryside of Istria, to just outside the tiny village of Lovrinići. Blood, sweat and tears and finally they created a beautiful stone building containing two apartments for guests, a lovely pool for hot summer days and all the tranquility one could want. Oh and the bars and restaurants that abound in this part of Croatia. More on their website and you can follow their progress on their blog.

Casa Bramasole

"If less is more then this is a lot." Welcome to Casa Bramasole, a little piece of Scandinavian living mixed with rustic Italian in Umbria. A true fairytale - a beautiful historic building rising from the ruins. You'll find me on this Monday morning taking coffee on the terrace sleepily drinking in the spectacular view of the Lago Trasinemo below. Might take a dip later. What a place to take an imaginary break on the first work day of the week!

Can Lis

Can Lis, Jørn Utzon's family home in Majorca built in 1972. Utzon settled in the Balearic Islands after leaving the Sydney Opera project in 1966. A house built using traditional building methods and materials but interpreted by one of the giant's of 20th century architecture. A place for the day to day rituals of living steeped in ancient traditions. The Utzon Foundation carefully restored the by now rundown building between October 2011 and February 2012. A spiritual, almost sensuous space sympathethically brought back to life.
