Bookworms, these 11 beautiful libraries are all available to rent on Airbnb

“Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.”

Anne Quindlen’s words sum up everything we love most about literature; a good book has the power to lift your imagination and transport you to somewhere entirely new. So, when it comes to planning the dream holiday, it makes perfect sense to surround yourself with as many books as possible.

To save you some room in your suitcase, we’ve teamed up with Airbnb to bring you a list of gorgeous listings from around the world – all of which feature well-stocked libraries. So, whether you pick the 16th century castle, the sprawling New Orleans mansion, the rustic Parisian loft, or somewhere completely different, you’ll be able to satisfy your inner bibliophile perfectly.
