“The perfect place...” I have rented this villa three times in the past 14 months and will be going back in eight weeks time.The villa is beautifully and comfortably furnished to European standard,in a rural location yet within ten minutes walk to the ferry or motor launches across the Nile for the East bank,and is within 15 minutes bus or taxi ride to the West Bank sites. The gardens of the villa are lush and well-mainained,an oasis of green tranquility. The owners are wonderful,helpful in all ways. The trips and tours they can arrange for you with excellent drivers and trustworthy guides are very competatively priced.They have organised day tours to the sites and into the desert,hot air balloon flights for me.I will always return to Villa Bahri.
“out of this world if you want the real egypian holiday this is t” we wanted a holiday that we could say wow well we got it, if you want to see the real Luxor this is the place to stay, Freda & Edward are the perfect propritors, they organised a personal guide extra cost but well worth all the knowledge one gains.
I would never go on a package holiday again. Also the info we hear about the troubles in cairo are none existant in luxor, it is the media blowing everything out of proportion. We are going back next year as 1 week was not long enough, and we never ate english food all the time we were their without any tummy troubles. I do hope you go and experience what we did.
“Excellent Apartment and Location, just the right mix of sun and culture” We had an excellent time during our 9 days in the Farasha house in Luxor. A good mix of Sunshine and Archeology with plenty of relaxation. The Apartment is all that it claims to be, spacious light and generally well equipped. The view from the balconies and the roof terrace (though I must confess the evenings were a little too chilly and breezy to spend much time there during our week in February) is a real feature. The beds are comfortable with plenty of clean linen and towels. Our only problem was that over time the original kitchen inventory had become rather depleted. We ate out pretty much every night but any more than 3 would have difficulties eating all at the same time if self catering. We have passed this on to the owners who will no doubt improve this for future rentals.
The owner’s recommended Taxi driver Ali is excellent. He picked us up from the airport and delivered us the keys just as promised and was pretty much at our beck and call after that. He arranged a very good guide, Ragi, who was very good and informative company on our various trips around the sites. He also arranged a carriage ride with a driver who did not try to alter the price. Best of all he was able to book us a 1 day Nile cruse to Dendara a major highlight of our trip and at a very reasonable rate.
I would not hesitate to recommend the location and this apartment to anyone; in fact I have been doing so ever since I got back.
