We stayed as B&B guests in April and would recommend others to do the same if they are visiting Luxor - it's a peaceful haven away from the hassle of downtown. The owner, Anne was there when we were, with no other guests (a general lack of tourists in Egypt at the moment). We had dinner together, so it had... More

I visited La Maison Pythagore 'en famille', and what a truly memorable visit. The owner Thomas was on leave for the birth of his daughter, and we were looked after by his team - Moksim and his wife in the house, Mohammed coordinating our stay, and our guide Khalid (please forgive my spelling!). The house and its well tended garden... More

La Maison de Pythagore What a wonderful place to stay! My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at La Maison de Pythagore and wished it could have been much longer. We had a very tight schedule and needed to pack in as many of the sights in Luxor as possible, it meant for tiring days, yet this hotel... More

Located in a quiet village sector in Luxor this escape is unique and memorable. The walk through the village takes you through real Egypt and its people, you then arrive at the hotel and you are welcomed into its relaxed and peaceful environment. Anne is a wealth of knowledge that you should use in planning your tours. The tours she... More

My stay at The Maison De Pythagore was fabulous. My hosts, Anne and Thomas, were unbelievably kind, warm and witty. I loved being in a real Egyptian setting, a village outside of Luxor, as opposed to a hotel filled with tourists. I was invited into several neighbors' homes and felt very safe being on my own in the various villages... More
