Riverbank House is literally on the bank of the Nile, with views directly across to the Winter Palace and Luxor Temple, and to the rear, the mountains and valleys incorporating the world-famous Valley of the Kings.

Villa Rosamund is on the edge of a traditional village a short walk away from Riverbank House, making this combination the perfect choice for large groups wanting to explore this part of the world.

Both the villas and the apartments have roof terraces and balconies which take full advantage of the views. There is ample private space for sitting and relaxing, all within secure and safe accommodation.

Bedrooms are doubles or twins, either en suite or with a private bathroom (with the exception of the first floor flat where the bathroom is shared). Each villa has 2 bedrooms on the ground floor, with wheelchair access for the less mobile.

Living space is large and airy, with high domed ceilings and beautiful, comfortable furnishings. Kitchens are traditional and well equipped for self catering.

Well trusted, friendly and reliable staff are on hand and will cater and clean for you as required. Our local manager, Khyry, with whom we have worked for twelve years, is a star feature. He is well known in the area and a great source of local knowledge. He can advise and guide you on the unique attractions of the area, take you to good local restaurants, and help you to get the very best from your time in Luxor.

Our large motor launch will take you across the Nile to Luxor Temple and the Winter Palace, or downstream to the wonderful Luxor museum and the temple at Karnak. The temples and tombs of this UNESCO World Heritage Site are all within a few minutes drive or bike ride.

Sail by falucca to watch the bird life and the unforgettable sunsets. Our manager can also arrange trips and accommodation in a beautiful twin-masted Dahabya, taking up to 10 people in 5 cabins.
