What better way to spend your Egypt holidays than to stay in a relaxing and luxuriously furnished villa in the beautiful city of Luxor in Upper Egypt! Not only are these comfortable one room, traditional domed villas comfortable and very well appointed, they are also ecologically friendly and are built by craftsmen from Edfu according to local Nubian design with the dome serving as a means to keep the villas cool without the need for CFC producing airconditioners.

Jane explains what was the inspiration for the Nubian Eco Village and why the design is an eco friendly one.
