Are you looking for an ecologically, responsible travel vacation? Why not take a relaxing holiday in an authentic, well-appointed, villa in Luxor, Egypt. The Nubian Eco Village could be just what you are looking for. A small group of one bedroom, traditional domed villas built to a Nubian design. These delightful buildings are set amongst fruit trees and a vegetable garden and are built by craftsmen from Edfu. They rely on a dome to keep them cool which makes them ecologically friendly as well as aesthetically pleasing.
The villas consist of a large studio bedroom with satellite TV and dining area. Leading off this is a small kitchen and wet room with shower, toilet and washbasin. Outside, a shaded veranda lets you enjoy a view of the Theban hills. The roof is a perfect vantage point for the bird spotter or stargazer. These villas are ideal for a single person or couple and allow you to get back to the ‘real Egypt’ and experience life at a slower, gentler pace.
Next door is our Goubli building with all modern facilities should you require them.

Luxor is the world’s largest open-air museum with a wealth of history, local culture and sites to visit. The villas are situated in the heart of the West Bank, amidst the rural area with its tiny villages, sugar cane fields, and banana plantations. Use a bike or donkey to get about the West Bank’s 21 ticketed sites. Even the 2 sites on the East Bank can be reached easily by Luxor’s local ferry. We can advise on local walks in the hills to view obscure, infrequently visited shrines and sites.
We have a site dedicated telling you a lot more about these eco-friendly accommodation villas at www.nubian-eco-village.com. There’s also some information on eco-tours of Luxor that you can do during your stay with us.
You can see the traditional building style we used in this video, which shows how the eco-friendly villas were constructed.
