We love having you to stay with us and it was an extra pleasure this December as your wife joined you so we all had a lovely Christmas. Enjoy our chats about life in Luxor and all the temples and sites which you love with a passion. Look forward to your next visit. I will have the lentil soup rady for you!
Best wishes,Linda and Eid

very friendly people, Linda and Eid makes you very welcome from the moment you meet them, as was saiid, (hope I've spelt that right!) the taxi driver who picked us up from the airport. nothing is too much trouble. beds changed and rooms cleaned very frequently. (seemed like every day, actually!) lovely rooms, each with at least three balconies each, roof terrace is available for sitting in the sun, tea, coffee and sugar supplied at no extra charge. nothing but your clothes and toiletries are needed! location is out of town, so local shops are fairly sparce, but good for what there is. local coffee shop owned by some very nice people (Hassan makes you particularly welcome there) short walk to the pubs and restaurants in Luxor, but there are plenty of taxis and buses available to take you, if you fancy walking. Plenty of books and dvd's available if you don't feel like going out. Christmas day they took us, with their family (who were just as nice) to a little island on their boat which had nice soft and very fine sand. once we had eaten our 'picnic' we set sail to come back, but they took us a bit further up the Nile than planned so I could spread mums ashes in the Nile. Anything you want or need, you just need to ask. There is nothing in particular that I liked the best, I just loved all of it. If you want a friendly pub for drinks and/or food, then I highly recommend the kings head, opposite the Isis hotel. all in all, probably one of the best holidays I've ever had. Thank you, both for a very memorable time. hope to see you all again soon.

Thankyou for you lovely comments. Eid and I are so happy you enjoyed your Christmas holiday with us joining in with Christmas Eve party and Christmas Day lunch on the Nile. It was made a little more special with you spreading some of your mam s ashes in the Nile. That is a first for us.
Also you and friend extended your stay by 5 nights so you must have been happy.
Also thankyou for helping to sort out the internet problems we and many others were having with T data. You will be pleased to hear all is now ok.
Inshallah we will see you at Villa Lostris again. Best wishes, Linda and Eid

This was our fourth time in Luxor and our second with Linda, we were picked up by Saeed at the airport who was charming as always. We were welcomed by Linda, Eid and the family not forgetting the cats. The rooms were cleaned to a high standard better than some 5 star hotels.
The best thing about staying with Linda is its a home away from home, the kitchen is fully equipped, clean towels and bedding. The pool was great to cool off during the heat of the day and its private. Staying in the village you experience the real Luxor. The hotels, coffee, shops,and the Nile are only a short walk.
The pool is a good size and no restriction like the hotels you can swim when you like. My daughter learned to swim without her armbands in the pool the girls enjoyed themselves.

Thanks for a wonderful time Linda, Eid and Family

Nabila, Irfan and the girls xxx InsAllah hope to see you soon

Luxor city pulsates around the clock – it’s full of magic, mystery and magnificent monuments; with an exciting array of souks to explore. However, I am reporting back with the latest travel article and it's not just a 'travel article' in the purest sense of the word either: Villa Lostris Holiday Apartments in Luxor is a MUST it is a very fine place to stay, infact it’s a jaw-dropping apartment. I was transported through time from staying at a grotty hotel in the centre of Luxor, I was rescued by Linda and Eid (I had previously met Linda on the aeroplane coming over from London to Luxor). If there's one thing I’ve learned from years of travelling, it always pays to really know where you’re going and Villa Lostris was truly an unforgettable experience I will never forget and hopefully will visit again, many thanks also to their driver Sayed who was most helpful - inshallah!.

Room Tip: I had a peruse around all the apartments and they are all superb!

You certainly were extremely busy visiting all the sites and doing lots of shopping.Hope you enjoyed the Egyptian breakfast. Inshallah we will meet you at the Villa again. LINDA & EID

It's taken a little time since our visit to write. Going back to Villa Lostris is like home from home. Wonderful to see friends and being welcomed back into the family. Linda and Eid's hospitality is just brilliant, if you are unsure where to visit, or go out for a meal in the evening they will be able to give many suggestions and advice.
thank you Linda and Eid x

This was our first visit to Luxor, staying with family and friends who had visited Villa Lostris before. From day one we were made to feel very at home and part of the family. Linda and Eid are brilliant hosts and embraced us as though we were part of the family. Linda provided superb guidance on places to visit, and played a very active part in ensuring everything went smoothly.

The accommodation was excellent, had everything we needed and felt like staying in a self-contained apartment; having access to the pool was also great, particularly relaxing when you've visited the numerous temples and tombs around Luxor.

So if you're looking for an inviting place to stay in Luxor and where you can get sound, reliable advice on where to go and what to see, then look no further. Without doubt Villa Lostris is a great place to stay. Anne & Dave.

It was a pleasure having you both to stay with us at the villa accompanied by your sister and spouse and 2 close friends, who are regular visitors. Eid and I are so glad you enjoyed Luxor with its many sites, experiences and great food. Many happy hours spent together chatting and eating over a glass of wine. As an ex navy man you did well sailing our felucca. Eid says you can have a job with him if you wish!!!
Inshallah we will see you in Luxor and at the villa again. Linda and Eid .

Wonderful.....

We keep returning with friends and it keeps getting better. The welcome and hospitality extended by Linda and Eid makes the the whole Luxor experience one never to be forgotten. The villa is like a home from home and the guidance and input from Linda and Eid as to what to do , where to go, and how best to do it is invaluable. Great to take new friends and relatives and let them experience the 'true' Egypt.

No doubt we'll be back soon. Many thanks to all who made the visit so memorable again.
