Where you’ll be

Aswan, Aswan Governorate, Egypt

The house is located on Elephantine Island, a green island on the Nile nearby the High Dam and the first Cateract of the river. The island is facing the Botanical Garden (Kitchener's Island) on the west bank and the modern city of Aswan on the other side. In the middle there are two nubian villages: Kutti and Siu. On the Kutti edge is settled the archaeological area and museum. On Siu edge of the island takes place the luxury Movenpik Resort. We are exactly in the middle, overlooking the Nile, the Garden and the desert. The best location, natural environment but just 15min walk from the city center.

Hello! We are Marta, from Italy, and Osama, from Elephantine Island, Aswan, Egypt. I studied Arabic and oriental culture at the University of Venice, and I got a specialization in art, architecture and archaeology of the Mediterranean and Middle East areas. My husband Osama is a professional travel organizer in Egypt, specialized in the Nubian culture and with many years of experience in the tourism sector between Aswan and the Red Sea. Together we built our house overlooking the Nile, the Nubian Lotus, where we live with our kids, dogs, cats and donkeys. We have combined all our experiences and needs. Practicality and simple traditional decorations. We used natural materials and colors that give to the house a romantic feeling of a rustic country home. We will be happy to know and host all those who want to experience the beauty, the simplicity and the slowness of living surrounded by nature in an ancient Nubian village.

Hope to spend good days together!
