In eastern Sicily, amidst rambling citrus groves, sublime views over Mount Etna and exquisite wines, you’ll find Zash: a country hideaway, a former winery, and a Mediterranean garden all rolled into one. Spend the night here and you’ll not just be close to Sicily’s best scenery, you’ll be part of it. All of the rooms find a unique way to immerse you in nature, with expansive views that overlook the evocative Sicilian landscape. For a tantalizing taste of Sicily, retire to the hotel’s lounge located at the entrance of the old winery – the perfect stop for an aperitif or an earthy local wine. Just outside the doors, specially designed trails let you get even closer to the sounds and smells of Sicily. So hike, walk or cycle, and let the countryside take care of the rest.

Rooms & Suites
Whether you choose to stay in the old manor, the former wine cellar, or the countryside, each of the 13 rooms and suites is in sync with nature. The manor accommodation is characterized by high-vaulted ceilings and chestnut French windows overlooking either Mount Etna or the Ionic sea. The suite here faces the Mount Etna volcano which, thanks to a game of mirrors, can be seen from every angle. The sanctuaries in the wine storage contrast intimate white bedrooms with restored volcanic stonework. Big glass walls make the citrus trees seem touchable from within the countryside rooms.
Architect Antonio Iraci and his partner designer Carla Maugeri joined forces to create Zash – a place that is refined in its design, rural in its context and vital for the soul. Iraci hails from Misterbianco (Catania) and graduated from the Architecture Faculty of Reggio Calabria in 1988 with honors. He launched the Archiline studio in January 1989, as an architectural lab for experimental projects and research. For his work on Zash Country Boutique Hotel, he was awarded the Ischia International Architecture Award (PIDA) for excellence in architecture. Designer Carla Maugeri, a member of the family that originally owned the manor house and surrounding property of Zash, studied architecture at the Architecture Faculty of Siracusa. Maugeri has worked at the Archiline studio since 2008, where she actively customizes design architecture.

Archi Riposto 95018,
Archi Riposto, in the Sicilian province of Catania, presents a postcard-perfect image of Sicily. Citrus groves and vineyards characterize the surrounding landscape, while a sleepy village vibe encourages locals and guests to wind down on nearby beaches or with historical trips to Greek temples just a stone’s throw away.
