Make a holiday rental property or accommodation in Egypt your home away from home

You will almost certainly already know a huge amount about Egypt. Images of the Sphinx, the Nile and Egypt’s pyramids are globally recognised, although seeing them up close and personal on a holiday to Egypt is an unbeatable experience. There are many centuries of history, art and architecture to be investigated in Egypt; Ancient Egypt’s monuments are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to world class attractions to discover on an Egyptian holiday.

Things to do on holiday in Egypt

Not even a rough guide to Egypt would be complete without mention of the awe-inspiring monuments of Ancient Egypt. Pyramids are an archetypal image of Ancient Egypt, and which ever Egypt accommodation you take, a trip to the only remaining member of the Seven Wonders of the World is essential. The Pyramids of Giza and the adjacent Sphinx make a simply jaw-dropping spectacle. Of course, there are swarms of tourists in the area, but not even the loudest of tour groups could reduce the amazement you will feel. Riding (on either horse or camel) around the site is a great way to avoid the crowds and get an atmospheric tour of Egypt’s prime tourist location.

More recent monuments are as beautiful, although somehow not as impressive. The Temples of Karnak, the Pyramids of Dahshur and Abu Simbel all live up to expectations and more. However, holidays to Egypt are not all about ancient monuments and inspiring scenery. Taking property in Egypt means you can enjoy desert trekking, exceptional scuba diving in Egypt’s Red Sea and magnificent Nile cruises in Egypt’s finest wildlife areas, which hug the banks of the river, providing the habitat for many species of exotic birds. Bird watching and golf holidays are beginning to thrive from property in Egypt too.

Nile cruises in Egypt are a perfect way for a first time visitor to accommodation in Egypt to see a cross section of this amazing country. There are temples and tombs located along many stretches of the Nile, but almost more importantly, a Nile cruise allows you to understand a little about the real Egypt, in its modern glory.

Recently there has been a change in focus for holidays to Egypt. Those who travel to Egypt are now discovering the many magnificent beach resorts which line the Mediterranean and the Red Sea. There are some exceptional beach holidays to Egypt to take, and for those with an interest in scuba diving, take a property in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula or anywhere on the Red Sea coastline.

Places to visit on holiday in Egypt

Cairo has a little of everything you could wish for. Egypt accommodation in Cairo is perfect for the first time visitor, offering exceptional entertainment, monuments from throughout Egypt’s history, golf courses, world class restaurants and great transport networks.

Weather in Egypt

Throughout the year, you will bask in hot, dry weather conditions when you take accommodation in Egypt. In the Egyptian winter (from December until February), daily temperatures hover around 22°C, and in the middle of the coldest night, temperatures will not dip below 8°C! In the summer months, temperatures in the middle of the country have been known to hit 50°C, but the coastal regions are much cooler, reaching around 32°C.

Travel to Egypt

Cairo is no longer Egypt’s only entry point from the UK. There are great regional airports which receive direct flights to Egypt from the UK, so it is worth finding out the exact location of your Egypt accommodation before researching your flight to Egypt.

Apartment offered us everything we needed for our 11 day stay and comes with a great selection of amenities, like towels and extension leads for English plugs, which we appreciated during or stay. The apartment also has a lovely roofed area with nicer sunbeds than the ones provided around the pool. The apartment itself is very clean and the bathroom and shower where particularly nice. Water and electricity meters have to be toped up by visitors but this is cheap and we were more than happy to do this as we definatly got more than value for money with the apartment itself. We will definatly be returning in the future. Thanks again Lee

                                                                                                      We had an amazing 10 days at the villa in El Gouna. The villa was absolutely perfect for us as we wanted somewhere peaceful, secluded and pretty to have total relaxation after a very busy and stressful year. The villa is beautiful and great for families or a group of friends. We were a family of 4 for 5 days and 6 for 5 days and there was plenty of space. The beds were comfy and the bathrooms are excellent with great walk in showers. We used the guest house as well for my nephew who was on crutches so he didn't have to go up and down many steps. The villa is really well equipped so there wasn't anything we needed to bring such as towels etc. Communication with the owner and the management company beforehand was efficient, helpful and friendly which made me really confident about the stay. The management company were helpful throughout the stay if we needed anything. We arranged for a cleaner to come every day for an hour which meant that everywhere stayed clean and the only thing we needed to do was put the dishwasher on. I recommend future visitors book an hour or 2 as it is great value for tourists, provides employment for locals and means you can just be thoroughly relaxed. The pool was cleaned daily and is perfect for people who want total privacy. We brought some inflatables with us and it was wonderful chilling in the pool with a book. Talking of books there is a little library of books to read; mainly German but also some English. We tended to have breakfast at the villa, hang out by the pool and then go into town to eat in the evening. There are plenty of places to eat in and all are very reasonably priced if you are a foreign tourist. A meal for 6 with soft drinks was about £45/£50 and portion sizes are big. A supermarket shop of basics from Best Way consisting of some boxes of water, bag of ice, lots of soft drinks, eggs, butter, bread, cheese and some snacks was less than half what it would have cost at home. We visited the supermarket on the first day but after that ordered over the phone. Taking taxis to downtown El Gouna is easy and cheap (between LE25 and LE40) but there is also a bus stop right next to the Phase 5 entrance. If you are staying for a week or more and want to venture out from the villa I highly recommend a day trip to Mahmya. The beach is beautiful and is great for snorkelling. If you get lucky on the boat ride there, which my husband did, you get to see dolphins! Enjoy your visit!
