There are a wealth of beautiful villas to choose from in Egypt, and equally as many reasons to visit this stunning country.
Spanning both the continents of Africa and Asia, Egypt is a country that offers fascinating history, incredible ancient architecture and awe-inspiring landscapes.
Sharm el-Sheikh, or the ‘City of Peace’, is the darling of savvy holidaymakers. It has a hot, desert climate with virtually no rain, making it perfect for sun-seekers. One of the highlights of Sharm el-Sheikh is its marine life; it has around 250 coral reefs and hundreds upon hundreds of species of fish, making it perfect for snorkelling.
Hurghada is a 20th century city on the Red Sea coastline, surrounded by idyllic resorts and stunning beach scenery. Its quirky shisha cafes and lively bazaars are as much of an attraction as its naturally beautiful beaches and striking landscape. Seafood and rich North African cuisine are its tantalising culinary highlights.
The perennial subtropical climate means that the best time to go to Egypt is - any time! Most of the minimal rainfall occurs in the winter months, so if it’s uninterrupted sun you’re after, aim for the summer months. However, if you’d rather avoid the intense heat, the weather is gorgeous in December, January and February too.
When planning a James Villa holiday in Sharm el-Sheikh, be sure to factor in paying a visit to nearby Mount Sinai. Sinai is the Biblical name of the mountain on which Moses received the Ten Commandments, and it’s unsurprisingly a staggering sight. At the foot of the mountain is the St Catherine Monastery - one of the oldest monasteries in the world. Named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2002, this is a true Egyptian treasure and an unmissable treat for art and culture buffs.
If you choose to rent a villa in Hurghada, why not enjoy a scenic horse ride along the sand dunes of the desert, or along the rare lush green forestry of the city. But, don’t worry if you’re not confident with your riding, plenty of stables offer guests an opportunity to learn all the basics, from how to kit out your horse to jumping.
