Sad News from Flats in Luxor - the wife of Gamal has died

I heard this afternoon that the wife of our chef Gamal lost her fight against breast cancer and has died. Lots of our past guests know and love Gamal and knew about his wifes illness, some have even sent money for her treatment. We thank you all

They had a large family with some young kids but thanks be to God they have many relatives who will help out.

Fantastic holiday at Flats in Luxor - Review of Flats in Luxor, Luxor, Egypt - TripAdvisor

 Our 93rd review on Trip Advisor from the lovely Christine.
Fantastic holiday at Flats in Luxor - Review of Flats in Luxor, Luxor, Egypt - TripAdvisor: Me and my partner and our 2 friends stayed in one of Jane's appartments at Flats in Luxor. The appartments are in a breathtaking location on the West Bank at Al Gezera. It had fantastic views and we loved to sit on the balcony watching the sun rising. In the evening it was just as spectacular looking accross at the view of the Nile and East Bank of Luxor on one side of us and the lit up valley of the Kings on the other side. We were only there for 7 nights and packed a lot into the days. A number of the trips were recommended by Jane and she also arranged for our transport to and from where we were going. We had breakfast made for us by Jane's staff on a number of the mornings which was a great help and absolutely lovely, they also cleared everything up after we had finished. We visited the valley of the Kings, Queens and Nobles and another 2 tombs at AL-Khaukha one of which included a mummy. Two of our trips were suggested and arranged by Jane and we absolutely loved every minute of them. One was the day cruise on the Nile which included lunch and a visit to Dandara Temple and the other was a trip on a hot air balloon and we would absolutely recommend both as not to be missed. We had a lovely meal waiting for us on arrival, not only was it delicious but there was plenty of it. The appartment itself was probably one of the largest we've ever stayed in. There were 3 bedrooms all big and one en-suite, a bathroom, large kitchen and living/dining room. We also had 2 balcony's, one that looked over the pool area and the other looked to the side of the property and accross to the valley of the Kings in the distance. We spent quite a bit of time cooling off in the pool when we were relaxing in the hot afternoons. The shops were a short walk up the lane in front of the appartments and along the way we would meet very friendly and welcoming Egyptian families. We absolutely loved it here and we can't wait to return to visit more places in Luxor that Jane recommends and stay in these fabulously located appartments.

Banish holiday worries caused by the Euro, come to Egypt

With Greece undergoing turmoil and the danger of them leaving the Euro, you may well be looking for an alternative holiday destination. Greek attractions are history and sun and Egypt has exactly the same attractions but even better. We have more history, more monuments and in better condition, there are 24 ticketed sites just in Luxor itself.. We certainly have more sunshine, we also have water sports on the Red Sea, easily reachable from Luxor, Nile sailing and cruises in Luxor and even more history on trips to Aswan and Cairo. And we don't have the Euro so you won't have to worry about a collapse affecting your holiday.

Come to Egypt with Flats in Luxor

Fantastic family holiday is stunning surroundings - Review of Flats in Luxor, Luxor, Egypt - TripAdvisor

our 92nd review on Trip Advisor

Fantastic family holiday is stunning surroundings - Review of Flats in Luxor, Luxor, Egypt - TripAdvisor:

The apartments was so spacious and beautiful, spotless,marvellous attention to detail; excellent value for money. The surroundings were completely enchanting. Thinking of the view from the top terrace brings tears to my eyes; it was an utterly magical landscape.

The food was fresh, healthy and delicious . The staff were smiley, helpful and attentive.

We took some of Jane's tours having first checked prices against other recommended companies- hers were around the same price, but we think the quality of what we got was much better and we were so glad we went with her. She is very knowledgeable and put together a perfect itinerary. After the first trip to Karnak and Luxor temples she called us to check everything was ok. she takes a lot of pride in what she does .

Jane, Mahmoud and their staff were so helpful and on hand to arrange whatever we wanted: taxi up the road for pennies or a trip for a pedicure .

We liked it do much that we curtailed our stay at a 5* at red sea to come back and finish our holiday at Goubli. We can't wait to go back and recommend it to anyone .
