respect for the environment and love for Nature
The spaces, materials, the energy sources, even the technology added: in the buildings, everything is designed to be eco-sustainable, and reduce the environmental impact to a minimum.
Nature does so much for us, presenting us with her most precious fruits. We want to respond to her bountiful generosity by making sensible choices and taking specific actions to give tangible expression to our love for our region.
A perfect eco-system for your vacation
Our green building project
There is a timeless atmosphere at i Carusi country retreat.
The structure is a former rural baglio, an old country property, cultivating almonds on its own land, restored by a careful green building project.
The restructuring took place with total respect for the nature around it, while the interiors were designed in a modern, minimalist style, paying special attention to ambient comfort. The rustic effect of the walls in white masonry, or the numerous finishes in terracotta, demonstrate our wish to recover traditional materials such as the soft Noto stone, the light-coloured clay tiles, or the hard limestone of Modica. Many of the internal structures in wood which you can admire around you, have been recovered from materials used in construction of the original buildings. This seemed to us a way to recycle creatively, in harmony with the country chic style of our wellness retreat in Val di Noto.
In the wall, roof and floor coverings of the building, we have combined sustainability and functionality to the best effect, using heat insulating materials, water-based, breathable paints, organic pigments and other natural derivatives, which do not use chemical solvents. Because for us, i Carusi is in every way a home, and we want our guests to feel as we do: pampered in a welcoming, but health-giving environment.
