About the Property

Situated right on the river bank directly opposite the Winter Palace Hotel

From the garden gate, steps lead up to a wide veranda with a sunny seating area. As you enter through the front door, there is a new but traditional kitchen to the left and a reception/dining area to the right. A spacious hallway leads to two bedrooms, one double and one twin, each with their own bath/shower rooms. Both have Nile views. Another door opens onto the garden.

A marble staircase leads to the first floor with a magnificent long domed sitting room extending the entire width of the house with windows opening onto the Nile; and two more bedrooms, one double, one twin, both with their own bath/shower rooms, and with views of the Nile.

The top floor contains the fifth bedroom and separate bath/shower room. The roof terrace includes a sheltered domed eating area with views of the mountains behind and the river in front.

Luxor (ancient Thebes) is a World Heritage Site and is unrivalled in its wealth of monuments from ancient Egypt. Amongst the most famous are undoubtedly the tombs in the Valley of the Kings and the stupendous Temple at Karnak, but the variety of wonders easily reached within 15 minutes from our villa includes so much more.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: It was in December 2003 that we had a chance meeting with Khyry on the corniche by the Nile. He had just returned from military service in the north of Egypt to his West Bank village, where his family have a sugar plantation and a small farm. Within a short time a bond of friendship and trust was formed between us and when an opportunity arose, we were able to purchase some land in a wonderful position by the Nile. This was the foundation of a collaboration to build our two beautiful large villas, employing only local labour and craftsmanship. We had together studied some of the designs of Hassan Fahty, the Egyptian architect famed for his domed buildings and we were able to engage the son of one of his team, who had learned the craft from his father. We also visited a number of older local buildings for inspiration on internal floor patterns and other features. Most of the brickwork, all the ornamental ironwork and the woodwork, including doors and furniture were made locally. Khyry has a wealth of local knowledge and contacts, and this joint enterprise could never have been achieved without him. The association between us has extended to members of our families and this has been an interesting and very rewarding meeting of cultures. Together, we now have a team which excels in providing an individualised and memorable holiday experience. Delicious and healthy breakfasts and other meals can be provided by an excellent cook.

Why the Owner Chose Luxor, Luxor City, Luxor, Luxor Governorate, Egypt:
Riverbank House, completed in 2013, is a beautiful and distinctive property, situated on a quiet stretch of the West Bank, directly opposite the Old Winter Palace hotel. The villa has unparalleled views of the Nile, both from its large roof terrace and from the magnificent long room overlooking the river on its first floor. The Nile can also be glimpsed from the bedrooms. In addition to the small gated garden surrounding the villa, there is privately our owned land leading right to the water's edge. From Summer 2017, there will be a private swimming pool in a new walled garden at the back of the villa.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Khyry will be there to meet you at the airport and he and his team will ensure that you are looked after throughout your stay. They will offer you a full Egyptian breakfast your first morning, during which you can discuss how you might want to spend your time. The choices are wide: there is so much to see in this unique World Heritage Site, said to be the greatest open-air museum in the World. As well as the Valleys of the Kings, Queens and Nobles, (all easily reached by road from your villa) our motor launch can take you to the East Bank to the stupendous temple at Karnak, with an English, French or German speaking guide if you wish, perhaps stopping off on the way back at the exquisite Luxor Museum or Luxor Temple. You will also have opportunities to visit local villages (by donkey, camel, car or on foot) and see something of life unchanged for centuries and to experience sunsets from the desert or from a felucca on the Nile; visit the house of Howard Carter, who discovered the tomb of Tutenkamun, as well as other monuments off the beaten track, where discoveries are still being made today. After an active day there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy a meal at a number of local restaurants. You may, of course, just want to relax in the sunshine and gaze at the views from the roof terrace, and perhaps end the day with a barbecue under the stars. You can even spend part of your holiday in the luxurious two-masted Dahabya, Queen Ti, ranging from an overnight stay at its mooring on the West Bank to a five-day sail along the Nile. Whatever you decide, we promise you an unforgettable time free from the constraints of a package tour.
