Caol Ishka Hotel - Zafferano Bistrot
Siracusa – Overlooking the natural port of Siracusa, that’s where you’ll find the Caol Ishka Hotel, located on the bank of the river Anapo only 2km away from the historical centre (Ortigia).
How to best describe it? Perhaps contemporary design meets the charm of an old Sicilian Masseria.
In this case it is surrounded by a large Mediterranean garden, where guests can relax in the solarium by the swimming pool or on the private patios.
For food lovers, the Zafferano Bistrot offers creative menus based on Sicilian traditional flavours either in a stunning dining room or on the outdoor terrace. The chef proposes recipes in harmony with seasonal and high quality local ingredients and flavours.
Unique in its kind, the warm mix of materials, designer furniture and antique pieces have all been blended in a rustic environment.
The garden merges with the surrounding nature: a wide lawn beside the swimming pool with Mediterranean plants and aromatic herbs gives way to bamboo, wild grass and spontaneous vegetation.
Whereas outside has maintained a traditional feel, inside one can find white and natural oak beam roofs alternated with white ceilings; warm colours for walls and floorings in coloured resin and different hardwoods. Bathrooms are spacious and comfortable, characterised by designer washbasins and large walk-in showers with Iroko decking and glass walls.
Oversized doors have been crafted by local artisans with various finishes: bisazza mosaic, mirrors, fabrics, gold leaf. Beautiful surroundings, tranquility and comfort make Caol Ishka an ideal retreat within easy reach of beaches, cultural spots and natural reserves.
All in all, pretty cool!
