Villa dei Papiri, a delightful villa/hotel offering self-catering suites, is 6 Km from Siracusa, in the Ciane and Saline Nature Reserve, a few meters from the source of the Ciane River, famous for the myth of Proserpina (Metamorphosis of Ovid), surrounded by wonderful Egyptian Papyrus.

When you think of a protected area, you immediately imagine you will be far away from the city center; you picture mountains, forests and swamps created by the slow rhythms of nature, more than by man. Instead, at the doors of Syracuse, Sicily (Italy), a nature reserve guards a site, which intimately interlaces the passing of the centuries with the history of a city resplendent in ancient legend and cultural tradition. It was only during the middle of the 18th Century, in a description of the Ciane River, that the first mention of the presence of a fascinating plant, the papyrus, was made, the very same papyrus used since ancient times to make the parchment rolls on which a large part of the history of man has been preserved. Villa dei Papiri, the Villa of the Papyrus. is in this vast natural reserve.

SOURCE OF THE CIANE RIVER: THE MYTH
The small river Ciane flows close to the old town of Syracuse, emptying its waters into the Anapo. The ancient Greek poets wrote about the love between the nymph, Ciane, and the god, Anapo, and the confluence of their waters was always poetically interpreted as proof of their everlasting love. Egyptian papyrus has always grown in this delightful setting. The source of the Ciane remains as it was when the miracle of the myth was to said to have occurred. The precious liquid gushes out from the earth in the gardens and citrus fields like a clear sylvan divinity; it crosses pastures and fields, it hides itself among the dense bushes of the bending filaments of papyrus. Amongst floating water lilies and the cries of grouses the soft blue waters of the Ciane serenely go forth to loose themselves in the sea of the harbour of Syracuse.

The bright sky, alternating between light and shadowy moments, reflects the rays of the sunset in the mirror of the stagnant water, while in the subdued light of the shore, the dark greens of the bushes are thickened and the leaves of the papyrus dissolve.

Because of its proximity to the source of the Ciane, it remains one of the focal points in the complex religious framework of Sicily and of Syracuse in particular. Its connection with the myth of Demetrius is also of primary importance from a sacred point of view. Antique terracotta pieces found at the site, including a figurine of a goddess, attest to the former existence of a sanctuary devoted to Demetra on the spot.
