The holiday farm ?Villa dei Papiri? is an old Sicilian house dating back to the 19th century. It dominates a 13 hectares area rich in organic farming of lemons and oranges and surrounded by papyrus plants, palms, olive, almond and carob trees, cypress, bonsais as well as other wonderful Mediterranean plants. It is located 5 kms away from Syracuse, inside the Natural Reserve of the River Ciane & Saline, a few meters from the mythological spring source Fonte Ciane whose myth of Persephone is praised in the Metamorphoses of Ovid. It is surrounded by beautiful Egyptian Papyri, exactly the same papyrus used for the preparation of those extraordinary paper rolls on which most of human history has passed, and it continues to grow wild in this place unique in the world.
The ancient 19th century farmhouse was completely renovated in 2008, respecting the original architecture of the period and maintaining the charm and taste of our history. It is divided into a central Villa with eight large and comfortable family suites and three "Dependances" structures at 200 meters from the villa with 16 comfortable and delightful double rooms.
The dependances are surrounded by citrus groves and overlook the gardens. Each double room is independent, furnished with fine antique furniture, equipped with every comfort: independent heating and air conditioning, large bathroom with shower, mini-bar and television, wi-fi.
