King Mariout itself has many food stalls where you can buy all basic food supplies. There is a large Carrefore Hypermarket 20 minutes away where you can buy everything. There are quite a few restaurants in the King Mariout location and a wide choice if you go a little further a field. Visit the many Greco Roman sites in Alexandria; the catacombs, pompeii's pillar, Roman theatre and the villa of the birds, Fort Quaitbey, the Alexandrian Museums, the library, the beautiful gardens and Palace of Montaza. It's only 2 hours from the villa to the Pyramids. Take a trip to the Western Desert for the day or visit the war memorials of El Alamein. Don't worry about having to find all these places or driving in Egypt, we can organise for you, a car and driver at a very reasonable rate. When you feel the need to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the busy Egyptian streets, relax by the heated pool in total seclusion, overlooking the tropical garden.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We built and designed both Villa Sahara and Villa Oasis. Villa Sahara being the first one and Villa Oasis 3 years later. We have now moved back to the UK, but visit at least twice a year, and we will have Asrar our housekeeper looking after you ensuring everything runs smoothly. I will contact you once you have arrived at the villa to ensure everything is running smoothly. You can also text me and I can phone you back should you need it. We have a strong team behind us - not only Asrar, but also Sayeed our Boab (doorman/gardener), and Hassan who manages the maintenance of the villa's for us. Zed manages the transport.

Why the Owner Chose Alexandria:
The properties are luxurious and fully equipped. We pride ourselves in them being well maintained and also giving you a fully personal service to ensure that your holiday runs smoothly. Having lived in Egypt for 12 years, with our children growing up here we have grown to love everything about Egypt and it's people.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The Villa's are situated in a village that enable you to feel that you are really living in Egypt and not some sterile hotel, though you have the benefit of shutting the gate and being in your own peaceful enclave when the hustle and bustle of Egyptian life gets too much!
