This spacious, self-contained villa with its domes, arches and tiled floors has Arabian and Islamic features throughout. On three levels, it has five well-appointed bedrooms, each air-conditioned with its own bath/shower room. In addition, some rooms have their own private balconies overlooking the green plantations, lovely for relaxing in during the heat of the day. The ground floor features a beautiful sitting room and a large kitchen and dining area, leading to a walled garden. The middle floor has its own kitchen facilities and a large domed sitting room. There is a further double bedroom with bathroom on the top floor.
The piece de resistance is the roof terrace, perfect for a refreshing sun downer after a day of sightseeing. Or enjoy a shisha pipe of apple tobacco like the locals while you stargaze. From the roof terrace, you will look out over banana, date and sugar cane plantations across the Nile to Luxor Temple and The Winter Palace on the East Bank. There are comfortable sun loungers if you are feeling lazy, plus an outdoor dining table and comfortable bamboo chairs. The roof terrace is an ideal place to enjoy a traditional Egyptian breakfast of fresh falafel, feta, tomatoes, cucumber, bread, yoghurt, honey, pancakes, omelettes, freshly-squeezed juice and coffee. This can be provided daily for 50 Egyptian pounds (approximately £3.50 GBP) per person. If desired, a cook can also be provided for other meals, although there are some excellent restaurants on the West Bank, as well as a mini-supermarket and some small shops.
Villa Rosamund is beautifully furnished and maintained to high western standards of cleanliness throughout. All rooms have air-conditioning, ceiling fans and insect screens on the windows. The villa has satellite TV and free Wi-Fi internet access. Our guests can use swimming pools at nearby hotels by arrangement for a small charge.
