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.

Our family loved this beautiful villa, having breakfast and lunch in the sunshine on the patio by the pool and chilled evenings under the pergola with a shisha. The airport pick up arranged through Ed went smoothly and we had a great welcome from Nasser upon arrival at the spacious and well equipped villa. The pool was a lovely temperature and well attended as were the grounds. We walked into downtown on the first night (about 20 minutes) but then made full use of the tuk tuk service (a bargain at 40LE for the 5 of us) and visited several restaurants and bars around downtown and the marina. With 2 days of boat diving and 4 days of relaxation our week went by far too quick so we look forward to making a return visit in the not too distant future. Thank you Ed and Nasser!

It's a most beautiful home, light and airy, with a simplicity and faithfulness to its Egyptian design and detail, with fantastic views across the Nile to the Temple at Luxor and the Winter Palace to the front, and the mountain at the back. It is so peaceful, and with Mahdi and Sayid preparing wonderful meals, and Khyry organising all our excursions, wherever we wanted to go, nothing could be more relaxing. Partly because he accompanied us, and also because the local people are so warm and welcoming, we felt entirely safe. We adored the trip up the Nile in the dahabiya, and the richness of the bird life in the shallow waters of the banks is a joy for anyone interested in ornithology. Visiting the temple at Esna was a bonus - it was fascinating to see how the Greeks and Romans adapted their own religion to incorporate Egyptian gods and goddesses. More locally, there is plenty to do. We enjoyed swimming in the hotel outdoor pool, set in pleasant gardens, just a short walk away, and it was interesting walking through the village and along the paths by the banks of the Nile, seeing how the local people make use of the fertile soil to grow crops and feed cattle, a little glimpse into true Egyptian life. Of course, if you want to visit Egyptian tombs and the Valley of the Kings, these are right on your doorstep. Altogether, I cannot think of a more lovely place to stay, looked after by such attentive people, and with such varied and interesting things to do and see: a perfect and memorable holiday.
