                                                                  Villa Rosamund is the most luxurious, beautifully decorated place to stay. We had a wonderful holiday during February half term, in and around the villa as well as visiting all the surrounding area with ease. Perfectly appointed and maintained, all rooms in the villa were as in the listing and pictures and it was a pleasure to stay there. This was made all the more enjoyable, without doubt, by the staff. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was absolutely delicious every time. Khyry ensured we spent our days doing exactly what we wanted, at the pace we wanted and for a reasonable price. He was interesting, informative and great fun to be around. We felt totally safe just handing over to him to ensure the smooth running of everything. There is so much to do in and around Luxor to suit all energies, tastes and budgets. As well as all the usual sights in Luxor, I would really recommend sailing in a felucca at sunset, riding through the villages high up on a camel and chilling by a riverside cafe in the afternoon. We felt totally safe wandering round by ourselves at all times. The people of Luxor were friendly and very welcoming. Thanks all for a truly memorable holiday. Can't wait to return

                                                                  I had had the pleasure of staying in Villa Rosamund on two occasions before, but it is not of course until you are back there once more beneath the domes and turrets that you remember quite what a truly special place it is. The total antidote to the modern day package tour where hordes of people arrive like cattle on a plane only to enjoy the sunshine version of what they had left behind back in Blighty, my two week stay in Villa Rosamund offered a complete and much needed contrast to the stresses and strains of life back in London. Built recently and extremely sympathetically in the Moorish style, it overlooks a banana plantation with stunning views from most angles which can barely have changed for centures . Close enough to the banks of the Nile to be able to walk with ease (not much more than 5 minutes), yet far enough away that you avoid the hustle and bustle and mosquito colonies that enjoy to assemble after sundown- you get the perfect feeling that you are of Luxor, but not necessarily in it. The beautifully designed thick walls and well connected air conditioning meaning that bedrooms are always seductively cool- even when temperatures outside are pushing 100 degrees. Space is another major plus point here. This well proportioned villa is large enough to accommodate up to ten people comfortably whilst still allowing enough space and nooks and crannies to escape from one another! The roof terrace is a particularly delightful feature- allowing views across the banana plantation and over to the Nile on the one side and to the mountains and the Valleys of the Kings and Queens to the rear. The free standing kitchen on the ground floor is similarly tastefully done (in the French country style) and offers a pleasant environment with a large enough table on which to eat, should you so wish to have a day or night in. One of the great hidden advantages of booking Villa Rosamund comes in human form- in the form of local celebrity Khyry. With a solid relationship with the owners going back many years, Khyry is the man in the know who can make things happen. Always with his ears to the ground, Khyry makes your every need is catered for- from cheerfully picking you up at the airport (helpfully included in the cost of the rental) to arranging cooks for breakfast and lunch should you so choose, to arranging whatever excursion your own heart desires. Egypt, as they say, is the land of possibilities. I only hope I shall return soon...

                                                                  My brother and I travelled from Asswan to Cairo, and naturally we stopped in Luxor for a few days. However, our stay was far too short. Villa Rosmund is a beautiful house in a calm area on the west bank and an excellent place to relax. The view from the rooftop where Maadi prepared breakfast for us was great – over a banana plantation and the Nile, and on the other side the hills with the valleys of the kings and queens. And breakfast was very fitting to the setting – fresh coffee, juice, fruit salad, good bread, falafel etc and delicious pancakes upon request. The rooms are all spacious, beautifully decorated and equipped with very comfortable beds and interesting animal or plant shapes created out of towels. The house remained very cool despite the heat outside and we did not even have to use the air-conditioning. Thanks to Khayry, our stay was funny and extremely comfortable as he took us around the village and the sights on the west bank, explained a lot about the attractions, suggested activities such as quad biking, recommended restaurants in the area for dinner, and organised everything else as well. For people like me who don’t know much about Ancient Egypt, there were plenty of books to read about Luxor and the individual sights and hieroglyphs and their meanings. The sights on the west bank are relatively close to the house, and for the sights on the east bank we took a boat. Karnak temple is truly amazing, but it might be useful to have a good guide who shows the entire temple – as holds true for all temples and tombs – as well as to take enough water. Unfortunate for the local economy but fortunate for us, there were not as many tourists as usual, so we could actually enjoy the sights and did not have to fight or wait anywhere. Overall, it was an amazing stay and I would definitely and wholeheartedly recommend Villa Rosmund without a second thought! It made the trip fantastic and was a nice spot away from the noise and mass tourism. My brother and I very much hope to return in the future!

                                                                  My brother and I travelled from Asswan to Cairo, and naturally we stopped in Luxor for a few days. However, our stay was far too short. Villa Rosmund is a beautiful house in a calm area on the west bank and an excellent place to relax. The view from the rooftop where Maadi prepared breakfast for us was great – over a banana plantation and the Nile, and on the other side the hills with the valleys of the kings and queens. And breakfast was very fitting to the setting – fresh coffee, juice, fruit salad, good bread, falafel etc and delicious pancakes upon request. The rooms are all spacious, beautifully decorated and equipped with very comfortable beds and interesting animal or plant shapes created out of towels. The house remained very cool despite the heat outside and we did not even have to use the air-conditioning. Thanks to Khayry, our stay was funny and extremely comfortable as he took us around the village and the sights on the west bank, explained a lot about the attractions, suggested activities such as quad biking, recommended restaurants in the area for dinner, and organised everything else as well. For people like me who don’t know much about Ancient Egypt, there were plenty of books to read about Luxor and the individual sights and hieroglyphs and their meanings. The sights on the west bank are relatively close to the house, and for the sights on the east bank we took a boat. Karnak temple is truly amazing, but it might be useful to have a good guide who shows the entire temple – as holds true for all temples and tombs – as well as to take enough water. Unfortunate for the local economy but fortunate for us, there were not as many tourists as usual, so we could actually enjoy the sights and did not have to fight or wait anywhere. Overall, it was an amazing stay and I would definitely and wholeheartedly recommend Villa Rosmund without a second thought! It made the trip fantastic and was a nice spot away from the noise and mass tourism. My brother and I very much hope to return in the future!

                                                                  If you want to visit Luxor, stay here! Location, accomodation, service, ambience - all perfect. Its sooooo much more peaceful on the West Bank but so easy to get to the other side for LUXOR TEMPLE etc... a matter of minutes. Easy stroll to local restaurants and shops. Everyone in the village is friendly and helpful. We loved everthing about it. The weather was lovely, the villa truly beautiful. The views from the roof alone would have had made the whole trip worthwhile. Khyry will, if you wish, remove all the pain and stress from everything you could possibly want to do. He is funny, reliable, informative and has a wonderful CAN DO attitude. Villa Rosamund provides a truly authentic Egyptian experience. I thoroughly recommend it.
