Make a Holiday Rental Villa in Luxor, Egypt Your Home Away From Home

 

Situated on the banks of the River Nile in Egypt is the ancient city of Luxor. Known as Thebes in ancient times, Luxor is a bustling and vibrant city, full of history and culture. If you are looking for a holiday where you can see lots of ruins, artefacts, places of historical importance in Egypt and spectacular views of The Nile, then a Luxor rental villa is the perfect choice for you.

Things to Do on Holiday to Luxor, Egypt

There is so much to see and do in the city that it is likely you won’t be able to fit it all in during your Luxor holiday! It is an opportunity to have a completely unique holiday with a range of activities on your doorstep. As well as activities such as golf, tennis and bird watching, visitors can enjoy seeing Luxor from a different perspective by way of a hot-air balloon ride. Camel rides, mountain biking and felucca trips along the River Nile are also popular activities to be found in Luxor.

Approximately 20 kilometres outside of the city is the famous Valleys of Kings and Valley of Queens. In these areas you can see the tombs favoured by Pharaohs of ancient Egypt, many with stunning wall paintings and hieroglyphs. The most famous Pharaoh known in the West, Tutankhamun, had his tomb here and many of the artefacts found by Howard Carter can be seen in the Egyptian Antiquities Museum.

The Valley of The Queens is home to the tomb of Queen Nefertari, which is one of the largest tombs open to the public. Other historical sites not to be missed include The Temple of Luxor, Hatshepsut’s temple and Deir el-Medina, the village of the artisans who worked on the pyramids.

Places to Visit on Holiday to Luxor, Egypt

Approximately 50 kilometres to the south of Luxor is the ancient city of Edfu. The most prominent attraction in the city is The Temple of Edfu, which is the second largest in the whole of Egypt. The temple is dedicated to the sun God Horus and is very well preserved. The temple is fascinating due to the large inscriptions on the outside walls that tell the story of how the temple was built. The reliefs in what was the inner courtyard are also worth a look.

To the west of The Temple of Horus in Edfu are large piles of rubble which indicate the location of the ancient city of Tell Edfu, from which archaeologists have found artefacts dating back to the period of the Old Kingdom.

Weather in Luxor, Egypt

If you are looking to have a Luxor holiday then the weather is not going to disappoint – the city is hot, hot, hot! Average daytime temperatures in summer can reach as high as 41°C. Even during the winter months of December and January the average daytime temperature rarely falls below 23°C. Some say that it never rains in Luxor and thanks to the mainly desert climate, this is mostly true. If it does rain it is very infrequently, with heavy bursts of rain that quickly dry up in the heat.
