An old winery underwent extensive transformations to become one of Sicily’s stunning resorts where sleek contemporary style merges with the old to shape a visually intriguing border line. The Country Zash Boutique Hotel in the Mediterranean countryside can be found in Riposto, a town on the east coast of Sicily, in Italy. Here, between citrus trees, rises a restored countryside manor house and winery, half dressed in the skin of modern design.
Re-imagined by Antonio Iraci, the welcoming resort bears a name inspired by it location’s features: ““Zash is the deep nature of a sound, its verbal repossession, the sound of the air within the leaves, the burst of a gesture in its flowing movements, it’s one of the infinite sounds that can only be heard and enjoyed by living in the countryside.” This is the place where historical fragments respecting our past were intermingled with modern features raising the standards on luxury and comfort.
Glass decor shapes an exciting new direction in the rural context. The old manor house shelters 4 rooms on the first floor, the former wine cellar houses 3 more, while the garden showcases two rooms dressed in glass. Oak floor boards and volcanic stone cladding meet pure white details and glass in an unforgettable setting.
