                      This lovely privately-owned five-bedroom villa is situated on a quiet corner of the village of El Gezira and ideally placed to visit the antiquities of Luxor and ancient Thebes, including the Valley of the Kings and nearby temples. This self-contained villa with its domes, arches, screens and tiled floors, has Arabian and Islamic features throughout. Each air-conditioned bedroom has its own bath/ shower room. Above the ground-floor kitchen/ dining area is a beautiful sitting room. From the roof terrace high above, you will look out across banana plantations to the Nile and to Luxor Temple and the Winter palace on the East bank. Our guests can use swimming pools at nearby hotels for a small charge. There are some excellent restaurants on the West bank, as well as some small shops. This location also provides an insight into local village life and, with the help of our wonderful local manager, offers rich experiences not available on a cruise or package tour.

                      Wi-Fi and Satellite TV.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: We live in South West London but have been involved with the Luxor West Bank for the last 10 years, working with our local partner and manager, Khyry.

                      Why the Owner Chose Luxor:
                      For independent travellers, we believe we offer a wonderfully unique experience of the Luxor area and provide a great deal more than any packaged holiday for a very reasonable price.
