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.

Your first impression may be a little surprising as it is in an area close to the pyramids and there is only sand leading you to the building with many people on camels and horses as well as goats in the street. When you get up to the apartment you will find a lovely air conditioned spacious apartment, very clean and comfortable. The price is very reasonable and she has all of the items you will need to settle in for a great vacation. The best part is in the evening watching the sun set from the balcony as you look out at the pyramids. Amazing. Soma can also help you find a tour company to help you get around the city. The traffic is horrendous in Cairo and guides are very reasonable. I suggest that you ask to be set up with Amany who is with World Tour to Egypt. She did an amazing job showing us amazing sites in Cairo. Soma lives near the apartment and was very available to us when we had questions. She is a lovely person and helped make our trip to Egypt a safe and incredibly interesting experience.

Lots of different seating outside in the sun & shade. Pool cleaned daily. Good location, although by the road, is still private and away from the little tourist boat routes that you can take around the complex. Easy ride to Downtown or the Marina using the tuk tuk's or shuttle bus to the restaurants & supermarkets. Would definitely recommend if you want a nice relaxing holiday.
