“"Heaven on Earth', or should I say, "Heaven in Egypt"!” I stayed at Villa Bahri for 4 weeks over Christmas 2012. The owners were extremely helpful, in fact, nothing was too much trouble for them. They recommended places to eat, organised taxis and a boat trip for us, and directed us to the best places to buy jewellery, papyrus pictures and other souvenirs. The villa is clean and spacious and very nicely decorated in traditional Egyptian style. It was really useful having constant internet access. The garden is beautiful, and I could have spent more time in it had there not been so many wonderful things to do. There are several different seating areas, depending on how much sun you prefer. Eating breakfast on the balcony every morning is one of my treasured memories.
The surrounding area teems with interesting places: Egyptian restaurants, archeological sites, boat trips on the Nile, museums...and the Valley of the Kings is just down the road. The local Egyptian people were friendly and welcoming and always willing to lend a helping hand when needed. The West Bank is much quieter and more rural than the city of Luxor, which was nice to visit, but I loved coming 'home' across the river in the evening to the peaceful setting of banana fields and palm trees.
I would definitely stay at Villa Bahri again and highly recommend it.
“Most relaxing” Beautiful apartment, near to the airport and all the nice places in Sharm, Naama and Nabq.
Also a super large terrace roof to enjoy the views towards the sea and the mountains.
Several small swimming pools and one very large.
Everything is very clean and secure.
Owner is very helpful with everything and responding quickly to any answers.
“Absolutely Fabulous” Edward and Freda made our week long stay so special from start to finish that it is difficult to imagine getting better service in any 5 star hotel.The apartment is just perfectly decorated and provides all you would need.They made us feel at home and welcomed us into 'their Luxor'so much so that it became 'Our Luxor' too. Nothing was too much and we are so very grateful for all those early morning breakfasts that got us on our way each day.Thanks for all the information and showing us where everything is and all the local tips that made the holiday so memorable for us. Thanks Freda for washing our clothes and all the other little touches.
We had wanted to stay in an apartment whilst in Egypt so we could experience the local way of life and would thoroughly recommend 'Our Luxor' as Edward and Freda make you feel right at home and help you gain that experience,we were part of Luxor life for one memorable week.
“Fantastic place to visit for a short break to get away from the winter and catch some sun!” If you want to experience some of the best diving and enjoy some sunshine during those winter months, this is the place to visit. The beach is warm and welcoming without being too busy and the diving opportunities are fantastic. The apartment is like a home away from home and is perfect for families as well as couples. The swimming pool is a sun trap and perfect for relaxing whilst the apartment balcony looks over it. The kitchen has all the mod cons so we were able to do a big supermarket shop and eat in some of the time, though we did enjoy local meals out too. From here we also organised a quad biking trip and left Sharm for a night in Dahab.
I'd recommend this place to friends who want to dive whilst staying in a relaxing resort away from the craziness of Naama bay. I'd also recommend this to friends with kids who would like the access to a beach and pool whilst living in a homely apartment.
Eygpt is an intriguing country, full of diversity and unequalled history. The beautiful Red Sea Riviera offers perfect relaxation as well as a range of activities from sailing to scuba diving. From the Sharm El Sheikh resort with its blend of sun, sea and sand, watersports, shopping and entertainment to Cairo, there is so much history and vibrant culture to explore. Take a cruise on the Nile and gaze in wonder at the pyramids, built as tombs to preserve the bodies of dead kings.
Travellers have been making their way to Egypt since long before the birth of Christ and as such, the country has an incredible heritage just waiting to be explored. It is not just the pyramids and the legacy of the Pharos that make Egypt what it is today, but the eclectic mix of remnants from Greek, Roman and Christian cultures, as well as plenty of art and architecture created during centuries of Islamic dynasties that still remain in today's modern age.
With its searing hot summers, Egypt is a beach bunny's paradise but other travellers may prefer to take in the sites in autumn and winter, when the temperatures are still pleasantly warm, with temperatures still getting up to the mid twenties. Whenever you decide to travel, Egypt is bound to give you a warm welcome!

Sunny one bedroom apartment
What a great apartment. Very spacious, plenty of light - sunny all day and just everything you could wish for. Ideally situated. Directly on top of the beautiful Marina and just 10 minute walk to Downtown if you don’t want to get the shuttle bus or Tok Tok. We have been to El Gouna many times and have many friends here. They are also very impressed with the size of this apartment. We are definately coming back next year (and for many years hopefully, thereafter). Nikolai, the owner, is an excellent communicator and nothing is too much trouble for him. We are in the apartment now, and are very comfortable indeed. …
