Single ladies in Luxor

I have just had a string of single ladies staying at the flats. I like to put them in the same building as me so they have someone to ask questions of if required or just had a natter. When I say single some are just travelling alone as their partner is not interested in Egyptology.

That was my first lady, Australian, she had been attending a conference down in Cairo and wanted to tag a few days holiday at the end. I was happy to offer her single rates in my three bedroom flat and also to include breakfast. But I had a condition, she had to tell me about the conference. A nice bonus for me. She wanted to do a lot of sightseeing and went out every day. She enjoyed the freedom an apartment gave her and the protection I offer single ladies, no Romeos allowed. She ate at the apartment and out in restaurants.

My second lady, British, was newly single and was looking for a spiritual retreat to catch her breath. Whilst wanting independence she did not want to feel lonely either. So I was available when she wanted to chat. Gosh we had some wonderful chats about the world and life. She had booked for breakfast but also had some dinners, we can do all meals. My husband also introduced her to the Sufi traditions in Luxor which she found fascinating. She meant to do a lot of sight visiting but in the end only visited a couple of places and spent a lot of time relaxing, painting and writing. It was her first time on the west bank and she has fallen in love.

My third lady, American, we do get a lot of nationalities, came for sites and horse riding. Our flats are located in exactly the same place as the stables that belong to Nobi. So massively convenient for riding. I have had some happy guests but she is ecstatic. I love making guests happy but this is special. She had never spent time in Luxor but had lived in Cairo. She thought that was her favourite place in Egypt but is now a Luxor convert. She has gone riding every day, doing hardly any sites but thoroughly enjoying herself. She is already talking about coming back and bringing her father.

So if you are single lady for any reason and want to come to Egypt you can relax staying at Flats in Luxor.
