Villa dei Libri’s appealing location between volcano and sea above the town center of Giardini Naxos is what really fascinates you. It is in the foothills of Mount Etna and only 800 m from sea, near the end of a cul-de-sac, that you find the two lovely holiday apartments, which offer a simply marvelous view. The nice bathing resort of Giardini Naxos is popular with those for whom there is too much hustling and bustling at neighboring Taormina, Sicily’s probably best-known town.
Bookworms should feel completely at ease at Villa dei Libri, because the owner’s collection of books, he is a travel journalist from Vienna, is one of a kind. You are free to take a book, which you might not have finished reading, back home at the end of your holidays, but leave one of the books you have brought along to fill in the space on the shelf.
Should you not want to do without certain comforts during your holidays, you might be in the right place at Villa dei Libri, where WLAN, dish washer and pool are at your disposal.
