Our family villa is situated in Garb Aswan , on the westbank of the Nile in the village of El Quba. The village is lying on the foot of the hills that contain the Nobles tombs from the times of the pharaohs. From the centre of Aswan you will always spot this landmark, especially at night when the lights shine on the hills.
A local ferryboat is crossing to the other side of the Nile and after 5 minutes walking you reach our house. You can also drive around over the Aswan bridge, in a beautiful drive that leads you through kilometers of Nubian villages on your right and the green fields along the Nile on your left in about half an hour.
If you are coming from the airport you might reach the house by desert road in about 20 minutes.
Our villa is built in Nubian style with a big dome and rooms with vaults and very thick walls to keep the heat outside. It contains a big living area and a dining room area opening up with arches to the vaulted corridors, four kingsize bedded sleeping rooms and a library where another bed could be made up. DSL and airco are available. There are two big bathrooms, one even with Jacuzzii and there is a wonderful oriental kitchen. Everything you need is there. The house has a huge private roof with a fantastic view over the village, the fields and the Nile.
The house is surrounded by a beautiful garden with some biodynamic vegetables and fruit trees. There is a big terrace in the front of the house, on the side of the village which is separated by the irrigation canal and the local road on which you will find some small shops. The second terrace is very private on the back of the house overseeing the fields and the Nile.
The villa is very suitable for families or small parties and offers much space for activities (yoga, painting, special occasions or party) As we, the owners of the villa, are having a travel agency we can arrange transfers, a boat tour or sight seeing in and around Aswan easily for you, if you like. Our family is living in the same village and are taking care of the premises. So if you would like any extra service like cleaning up during or at the end of your stay or doing your wash or cooking a real Nubian meal, that is all possible for reasonable fees.

Be surprised by the hospitality and friendliness of the people. This is where Africa is starting.
