Between 29/5/13 & 12/6/13 we visited the Villa Lostris for the second time.
Once again Saeed was waiting for us at the airport and safely transported us to our home from home. Although Eid was on his own this time nothing was too much trouble for him (I even had a motorbike ride to the train station to collect some train tickets) the rooms were kept perfectly clean as before, the sheets and towels changed regularly and shopping was delivered for us almost as soon as we had asked for it. Eid also took us out on the motorboat one day and felucca another time, giving us a wonderful sunset trip with a meal on the Nile. He also took the trouble to get a traditional egyptian breakfast ready for us one day.
The appartments kitchen is fully equiped with eveything you need to cater for yourselves, there is loads of room for 2 couples to spread out in their own bedrooms, one with an on suite bathroom, each bedroom also has its own balcony, as does the kitchen. There is also a balcony just outside the entrance door which we found perfect for drying the washing (takes about 5 minutes in that heat!). The roof is the perfect place to sunbath for an hour or two and also has somewhere to retreat into the shade if it gets a bit too hot, and there is always the shady pool to cool off in too.
Location-wise, the Sheraton hotel is just down the road and 7 Days 7 Ways just round the corner from that. The centre of Luxor is easily walkable in 20 mins or less and of course there are plenty of taxis or carriages if you want a ride.
In summary, an exceptional host and a brilliant place to stay. Looking forward to next time already!!
