Ideally situated just minutes from the Nile, you will be perfectly placed to visit the antiquities of Luxor and ancient Thebes, including the Valley of the Kings and nearby temples.

This stunning five bedroom domed villa is privately owned by an English/Egyptian partnership, bringing together the best of both worlds.

Newly available for renting, this spacious, self-contained house 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 and coffee. This can be provided daily for a very reasonable charge. If desired, a cook an also be provided for other meals, although there are some excellent restaurants on the West Bank, as well as a mini-supermarket and some small shops.

Location description from owner

The Nile River Valley region

Charismatic, very knowledgeable and extremely well connected, our local manager, 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 excellent English, owns a seven-seater car and a motor launch, â Siriusâ. He is shortly to become 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. After all, we would very much like you to come back again and again as there is so much to experience on our doorstep!

“Stunning Villa to unwind and relax in, whilst exploring the delights of the Nile Valley.”

Reviewed 13 Dec 2012

Villa Rosamund really is a beautiful and authentic Egyptian villa, situated on Luxor's much quieter West bank of the Nile. My friends and I were collected from the airport by the Khyry the Villa manger, and from that point on we were looked after like royalty. Upon arriving at Villa Rosamund we were greeted by the friendly local staff and made to feel instantly at home. We were shown to our large rooms and given a tour of the amenities. There was so much room that even with 5 couples we had our share of the bathrooms and 2 kitchens. A fresh breakfast was served on the roof terrace each morning, consisting of all local produce. Khyry was always on hand with great advice for local restaurants and Shopping. Not to mention his vast knowledge on the local Temples and Valley's of the Kings and Queens. It really helped to get advice on the local customs and have tips on the best times of the day to visit the different Tombs and temples. Highlights for us included a hot air ballon ride over the Nile Valley and a Felucca Sailing trip on the Nile itself. Magical. My friends and I are already planning our next trip. Gareth, London. UK
