Riverbank House

5 bedrooms, sleeps up to 10

Situated on the West bank of the Nile opposite the Winter Palace Hotel, its front garden leads right down to the water’s edge.

From the garden gate, steps lead up to a wide veranda with a sunny seating area. As you enter through the front door, there is a modern but traditional kitchen to the left and a reception/dining area to the right. A spacious hallway leads to two bedrooms, one double and one twin, each with their own bath/shower rooms. Both have Nile views. Another door opens onto the walled garden.

A marble staircase leads to the first floor with a magnificent long domed sitting room extending across the entire width of the house, with windows opening onto the Nile. Here  are two more bedrooms, one double, one twin, both with their own bath and shower rooms, and with views of the Nile.

The top floor contains the fifth bedroom and separate bath/shower room. The roof terrace includes a sheltered domed eating area with two large tables and a small kitchen. There are sunbeds and ample comfortable seating. The views over the Nile are unparalleled and behind the villa are  the mountains containing the valleys of the Kings, Queens and Nobles.

Luxor (ancient Thebes) is a World Heritage Site and is unique in its wealth of monuments from ancient Egypt. Amongst the most famous are undoubtedly the tombs in the Valley of the Kings and the stupendous Temple at Karnak, but the variety of attractions easily reached within 15 minutes from our villa includes so much more.
