Book a holiday home in Egypt and live like a Pharaoh
Egypt | Egypt has been attracting holidaymakers for centuries thanks to its treasure-trove of ancient monuments. But rent a holiday home in Egypt and you will discover a North African land that offers much more than just Pharaohs and pyramids. From bustling souks to sandy beaches, from adventurous desert safaris to stately river cruises - Egypt really does have it all. And what's more, a holiday rental or holiday home allows you the independence and flexibility to explore these wonders in your own time.
From ancient Egyptian culture to white-sand beaches
The most famous of Egyptian landmarks are the Great Pyramids of Giza. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. Book a holiday house in riverside Luxor and explore the colourful tombs of the Valley of the Kings by day, before gazing at lamp-lit Luxor Temple by night. Alternatively, rent a holiday house or apartment in one of Egypt's coastal resorts, such as El Gouna or Hurghada, where snorkelling and diving are the top attractions. Breakfast on the terrace of your holiday home overlooking the Red Sea, before a relaxing afternoon on the beach.
Shop 'til you drop, enjoy a desert safari or cruise down the Nile
One advantage of a holiday house or apartment in the bustling capital Cairo is the chance to shop for bargains in one of the world's most famous markets - Khan el-Khalili souk. From Cairo, you can also organise trip to the Great Sand Sea in the Western Desert, where families can enjoy activities such as sand boarding, as well as immerse themselves in desert culture at the Siwa Oasis. Alternatively, Felucca boat trips down the River Nile are a great way to explore villages and temples.
The ideal destination for families and winter sun seekers
A holiday rental in Egypt offers families the chance to combine adventure with education and culture. Egypt also has the advantage of being a truly year-round destination - with plenty of winter sun - while also offering a wide range of reasonably-priced holiday rentals and holiday apartments.
