Things are calm in Egypt now, and everything is back to normal. In Siwa, it was always calm and the troubles in Cairo where something locals saw on the news. The Siwa Villa will be open again from Sept 2014 until mid December and then again from January 2015 to the end of May and again open in Sept for the winter. SO if you want to make a booking for February onwards please get in touch.

Duncan and Penny are spending the summer in their little village of Breb, Romania, putting all their energy into renovating new villas at The Village Hotel. We are still taking provisional bookings for Siwa Villa, but are very aware of the current political climate in Egypt. Feel free to enquire about Siwa Villa and we will keep you updated on this page.

Have a look through the sections below to see Egypt the way we have experienced it.


All Inclusive

Come and see Egypt in a different wayю The tours we offer in this section are about experiencing the Egyptian and Berber cultures at the same time as having a bit of luxury in your own villa.


Family Holidays

Our children grew up in the desert. We know exactly what they liked to do and what bored them. The sandboarding, swimming in the many springs and the desert safari are just a few things you can do on a family holiday in Siwa.



My favorite city after London. Cairo buzzes and the people are friendly. It is easy to walk about hassle free and to enjoy the sights and smells of the biggest Arab city on the planet. We know the way and we will show you.


Western Desert

The desert around Siwa is some of the most spectacular in the whole of the Western Desert.



Stay with us in the Western Desert and have an experience you will never forget.


Weather in Egypt

Weather in Egypt varies more than you think. Winter can get a little cold and summer not as hot as you imagine. Each area is covered giving details of how hot it gets and what to wear month by month.


Marsa Matruh

Marsa Matruh is the Blackpool of Egypt. So you can go out and choose a good fish restaurant, buy sweet cakes and sit on the beach; or you can do it our style and meet the local Bedouin who are very different.



We have the biggest dunes here in Siwa. We know where they are, we have a jeep and ten sandboards and bindings.
