The space
This spacious, self-contained villa with its domes, arches and tiled floors has Arabian and Islamic features throughout. On three levels, it has five well-appointed bedrooms, each air-conditioned with its own bath/shower room. In addition, some rooms have their own private balconies overlooking the green plantations, lovely for relaxing in during the heat of the day. The ground floor features a beautiful sitting room and a large kitchen and dining area, leading to a walled garden. The middle floor has its own kitchen facilities and a large domed sitting room. There is a further double bedroom with bathroom on the top floor.

The piece de resistance is the roof terrace, perfect for a refreshing sun downer after a day of sightseeing. Or enjoy a shisha pipe of apple tobacco like the locals while you stargaze. From the roof terrace, you will look out over banana, date and sugar cane plantations across the Nile to Luxor Temple and The Winter Palace on the East Bank. There are comfortable sun loungers if you are feeling lazy, plus an outdoor dining table and comfortable bamboo chairs.

The roof terrace is an ideal place to enjoy a traditional Egyptian breakfast of fresh falafel, feta, tomatoes, cucumber, bread, yoghurt, honey, pancakes, omelettes, freshly-squeezed juice, fruit salad and coffee. This can be provided daily for 100 Egyptian pounds per person. If desired, a cook can also be provided for other meals at the house, from a light lunch with salads, babaganoush, tahini and flat breads to an impressive BBQ on the roof or four course dinner for 200 Egyptian pounds per person (eg soup, salads, dip and bread, meat or fish course with vegetable sides, rice, dessert - decided in consultation with you). There are some excellent restaurants on the West Bank, many just a few minutes walk away, as well as a mini-supermarket and some small shops.

Villa Rosamund is beautifully furnished and maintained to high western standards of cleanliness throughout. All rooms have air-conditioning, ceiling fans and insect screens on the windows. The villa has satellite TV and free Wi-Fi internet access. Our guests can use swimming pools at nearby hotels by arrangement for a small charge.

Please feel free to contact us if you would like further information, we'll be happy to help.

This stunning domed villa is privately owned by an English/Egyptian partnership, bringing together the best of both worlds. Khyry, our local manager, can help ensure this is the holiday of your dreams, whether you want to see and do as much as possible, be left to organise your own time or just relax and enjoy the villa. We provide a personal service that is unique, allowing you to tailor your holiday to ensure that you get the most out of your time in Luxor.

During your stay
Our local manager Khyry will be on hand to help you organise your time in Luxor. If you would prefer to be left to your own devices then of course that is perfectly fine too.

Charismatic, very knowledgeable and extremely well connected, Khyry is able to organise any excursions or experiences you desire. These range from visits to world-famous tombs in the Valley of the Kings to exquisite lesser-known gems in the so-called Valleys of the Nobles and Workers, where he can arrange a private tour unhindered by other tourists. A trip to Luxor wouldn't be complete without exploring the many wonderful temples, but for a totally different perspective, why not see them from the Nile on a felucca? It truly is a spectacle to behold. Camel rides through local villages, walks in the mountains and overnight desert safaris can easily be arranged for the adventurous. Or just relax in the year-round sunshine or go for an evening boat trip and watch the stunning sunsets over the Nile.

Khyry speaks good English, owns a ten-seater taxi and a motor launch, Sirius. He is also an accredited tour guide. He has lived on the West Bank all his life and certainly has his finger on the pulse in this majestic city. Khyry will do his absolute best to help plan your stay in Luxor and ensure that it is a very special one that you will always treasure.
