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.

The flat was first class, was really clean Had everything like home from home; but with sunshine. Plenty of clean towels for use and bedding. Washing machine. Which I really liked and want the same it played pretty tunes. Everything was modern not like some places I've stayed . Would highly recommend. It's close to shops and bars .ideal location. Would stay again

It had a DVD player which we also used . The internet was fast.It has a big comfy couch which is rare in these rentals .The pool guy came everyday early in the morning .The place is very well maintained. Beware the hot water is really really hot , so beware of kids in the shower fiddling with the hot and cold. Put all food in the fridge because of the ants .( I think this is a problem in lots of places in Gouna) Lyn the agent was super helpful . We went to Sliders and had an amazing time for 3 days , what a blast!
