The two bedroom Nubian House

The Orange Grove consists of two Nubian Style Adobe Houses.

The first house has two good sized bedrooms and is available for rental now. The second has one large bedroom and will be available for rental from October 2013.

Adobe (sun-dried mud brick) is the traditional building method demonstrated by the Egyptian architect Hassan Fathy. The mud brick insulates noise, is eco friendly and helps to regulate the heat;keeping the building cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The domed and vaulted ceilings at The Orange Grove aid air circulation

Whilst the building methods help to keep the building cool we recognise that the weather in Luxor can be extremely hot at certain times of the year.Therefore the bedrooms are fitted with airconditioning units. There  are also floor standing fans for your comfort.
