This palatial privately-owned five-bedroom villa is situated on a quiet corner of the village of El Gezira and ideally placed to visit all 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 beautiful 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 Valley. You can cross the Nile by motor launch in 5 minutes to visit Luxor Temple and the Old Winter Palace on the East bank.

We can take you in our motor launch down-stream to the stupendous temple of Karnak and up-stream by launch or fluke sailing boat to small islands with wonderful bird life.

Our guests can use an 11 X 5 metre swimming pool at a nearby hotels2 minutes away 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, Luxor City, Luxor, Luxor Governorate, Egypt:
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.
