The space

Come and experience a really different Egypt, far from the hassle filled tourist trail at Rouqayah's Ranch. We offer a unique opportunity to enjoy riding lessons, riding holidays, farm stay holidays and NEW from August 2013, spa breaks and treatmetns, on a traditional working farm in either fully catered or self-catering en-suite accommodation. Located about 65 kms from Alexandria and about 10kms inland from the Med, we are probably the ONLY agro-tourism facility in Egypt. We strive to be as self sufficient as possible, growing our own organic, free range foods for our animals and humans. Recycling is encouraged and we try to be mindful of our carbon footprint too. Swimming pool, secluded gardens, fresh air and a clean and friendly environment await you for a totally chilled out holiday, but we can also organise trips to do and see what ever you would like here in Egypt, be it visiting her famous monuments, diving in the Red Sea or seeing how the locals live and work .
