VILLA ON WEST BANK OF THE NILE OPPOSITE THE WINTER PALACE HOTEL, LUXOR

Luxor Villa Rental Photos and Description

Self catering but with optional service from our local manager/partner

Self-contained private villa with two large air-conditioned bedrooms, each with a large modern bathroom. Spacious sitting room with dining area and kitchen at one end. Self-catering facilities but breakfast can be brought to you and served on the extensive roof terrace, a star feature of the villa. You can enjoy the sun here and there is a sheltered area for eating and relaxing. It provides a romantic setting by day or night, with a view across the Nile to the Old Winter Palace hotel, Luxor Temple and the busy city of Luxor. Behind the villa are sugar cane plantations with a backdrop of mountains which encompass the valleys of the world famous antiquities of ancient Thebes.

The villa is entered via a small enclosed garden with bougainvillea from a quiet street at the edge of the village. From here you can stroll along the peaceful West bank of the Nile, or visit the nearby small shops and restaurants. A five minute boat ride will take you across the river to the busy East bank.

Swiimming is available for a modest daily charge at a hotel very nearby.

As the Google map does not show most of the nearby historical sites in this UNESCO World Heritage area, we shall be pleased to email maps which show how excellently the villa is situated for visiting places such as the Valley of the Kings and the world famous temples and tombs of ancient Thebes,

Please note that the owners will be offering this villa for sale later this year. This is a wonderful opportunity to own a lovely villa in an exceptionally favourable position on the West bank of the Nile, with superb views from the roof terrace. If required, existing management services will be available. Please contact us if you would like any further details. Existing rentals will be honoured.

Holidaying with the gods

  • 5 of 5
Khyry Ali is a wonderful guide to the extraordinary sites of Luxor. He met us at the airport and provided us with a mobile phone, and charger, complete with his number and those of a local boatman. We could ring him any time of the day or night with questions or requests. Holidaying does not get easier than this. He arrived at the villa on our first morning and prepared us a delicious and huge breakfast complete with fresh strawberry juice and local honey with yoghurt. Every site we wanted to see Khyry could drive us there, book/buy us tickets and act as a superb guide (he is an expert in Egyptology). He also suggested lots of excellent tombs and temples outside the guidebook and proposed visits on days he knew would be the least crowded. He took us on a magical one-night trip down the Nile on a felluca and a sunset camel ride into the dessert to visit a Coptic monastery. He also gets every ticket/meal at the best, local prices, ensuring you avoid the inflated tourist rates. Khyry makes Villa Kyhry a wonderful holiday- the house itself is very comfortable with spectacular views over the Nile from the rooftop terrace. Holidaying could not be more relaxing, interesting or enjoyable. - Jessica C

Villa Khyry, West Bank of the Nile, Luxor

  • 5 of 5
Villa Khyry is lovely. It is set in a quiet road on the West Bank of the Nile and framed by the hills of the Valley of the Kings. It more than lives up to expectation and is ideally situated for visiting the wonders of Egypt and Luxor in particular. The frequent ferries to Luxor town and the temples of Luxor and Karnak - 'The most perfect of places' according to the ancient Egyptians - are just a short walk from the Villa.

This charming house has everything you could need and is managed expertly by Khyry himself who can be your guide to all the sights, find a suitable restaurant, take you for a magical sail on the Nile, or on a donkey ride through the villages and into the desert.

For me the Villa's top attraction is the beautiful rooftop garden with its wonderful views - the perfect spot for relaxing.

I highly recommend a visit - you can't fail to be enchanted.

At home in Luxor

  • 5 of 5
I cannot stop recommending Villa Khyry to just about everyone I meet. And I wish that I was at Villa Khyry right now, with breakfast - actually more of a brunch with its omelette, beans, fresh fruit and juice and bread and honey - brought to us by the wonderful Khyry up onto the glorious roof terrace looking across the Nile to the Winter Palace. We discuss whether we'll visit the Valley of the Kings, up in the mountains behind the house, preceded by a visit to the village market. Here on the West Bank, in this charming, well appointed villa, we find ourself in the midst of a traditional Egyptian village where we weave our way among donkeys and bicycles, camels and date groves - although it has a hotel round the corner with a swimming pool we can use, and plenty of delightful restaurants for later. It is with Khyry, a native of the village and master of all that the region can offer, that we plan our day, pausing when we are interrupted by the call of the muezzin from the mosque, which picturesquely frames our view of the Nile. Whatever we decide - a visit to the Temple of Karnak, or the Bazaar in urban Luxor on the East Bank are high priorities - the only way to spend the late afternoon, we agree, is upstream on Khyry's brightly painted traditional boat - or the felucca if there's enough wind - drinking karkadih (hibiscus petal tea) as the sun sets over the palm trees bordering the Nile. While Khyry removes the breakfast things and lays on the car, the boat, or the donkeys that we require, we pour ourselves more coffee, and check that we have our sunscreen in our bags. Plans can be made with confidence here. Not only does this attractive, sympathetically furnished villa, with its spacious bathrooms, surpass expectations. It never rains. And Khyry has already reappeared with the car. And a suggestion about a beguiling place to dine, improbably cheaply, after sunset.....

Memorable Luxor

  • 4 of 5
Dear Christopher, Pamela & Khyry,
Thank you for your help and assistance in arranging our stay at the Villa in Luxor. We greatly enjoyed our stay and experience. It was a great pleasure to meet Khyry and his family, Khyry was very knowledge about all the sites we visited in Luxor (his English is also very good), Khyry was able to assist, arrange and advice on all of our sightseeing excursions and trips. Luxor offers a great many activities apart from sightseeing; Horse/Donkey/Camel rides, Boat trips/rides (river Nile), Markets (souks), Restaurants etc….

We found Christopher very helpful in the booking process of the villa and on the other end (Luxor) Khyry’s assistance was greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards
Mohammed & Family

PERFECT TAILOR MADE HOLIDAY WITHOUT THE CROWDS

  • 5 of 5
We had the most amazing family holiday. Khyry was there beaming at us at the airport and he drove us to the villa plying us with information en route to the villa. The house was perfect, cool and comfortable. It was a great treat to sit having breakfast (freshly made strawberry smoothies, yoghurt and omelets) cooked beautifully by Khyry every morning on the terrace overlooking the Nile.
What makes the holiday is having ones private guide, cook and driver - all manfully done by Kyhry. We felt truly honored to have had such a friendly and happy time in Luxor. When the heat got the better of us, we were able to retreat to a lovely pool at a local hotel. It was great to be on the West Bank. Lots of good local restaurants. The East Bank is noisy and touristy. I have always been pro independent travel and anti tour groups and this fitted the bill perfectly! We will certainly return and are urging all our friends and family to go soon.
