Welcome to Villa dei Papiri

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 plantations 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 famous source of the myth of Persephone as 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.

In this vast nature reserve Villa dei Papiri is elegantly refined and equipped with every comfort to offer to its visitors the opportunity to relax and enjoy the beauties of the place.
