Welcome To Your Private Library

“A room without books is like a body without a soul.” 
― Marcus Tullius Cicero


Is there any more satisfying scent than that of the pages of a book? Particularly old books. Yes, wood fire is wonderful, fresh cut grass is refreshing, but books are just… Mystery, imagination, possibility and escape in a breath. ♥

As book lovers ourselves, over the years we’ve sourced all manner of wonderful books, from beloved childrens’ and teens favorites, to biographies and novels, to classic favourites. From fiction to non-fiction, fantasy to non-fiction, and reference to history, the collection is eclectic. Lining the walls of the villa hallway are an array of books for those days when you just want to snuggle in a cozy corner and read.

The private library is shared with you, and if you’d like to recommend any particularly fantastic books you’ve read, that you think should be included in our collection, we’d love to hear about it!


“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”
 Jorge Luis Borges
