A Quick Look at Property in Egypt

Egypt isn’t just a destination for winter sun and beautiful beaches where you can swim all year. It has history, culture and an exotic Middle-Eastern lifestyle where your money goes a long way.

Egypt proves one thing about buying property overseas: you don’t need megabucks to own abroad and get some relief from the British winter. Egypt has studio apartments for under £10,000 (or go mad and get two bedrooms for £20,000), with pool, landscaped gardens and a view of the Red Sea. Flights go all year from throughout the UK for less than £200 return. So you can spend long weekends splashing about in the warm sea, and relaxing in your Egyptian home while your friends are shivering at home. Why not rent it out to them when you’re not using it?

For those with bigger budgets, Egypt offers a luxurious lifestyle you would pay a lot more for in the Caribbean or Far-East, but without the travelling time, expense or jet lag. The flight time is around five hours and Egypt is just two hours ahead of UK time.

Egypt has a good choice of destinations for a bit of winter sun, permanent relocation or retirement along its long Red Sea coast or shorter Mediterranean coast. It’s one of the world’s great scuba-diving and snorkeling destinations, with protected coral reefs, wrecks at an easily diveable depth and friendly dolphins.

Popular resorts along the Red Sea Riviera include El Gouna, about the most luxurious, with its golf course, marinas and five star hotels. Soma Bay is also quite special, just a 20 minute drive from Hurghada and its airport. There are other resorts along this coast at varying price levels and accessibility. In the past some developers have failed to complete the surrounding infrastructure and facilities, so be careful to use a reputable agent and developer.

Other potential locations for your home in Egypt are along the Mediterranean coast, such as Alexandria, or in Cairo or Luxor. In Cairo you have a choice of the old city, with beautiful old colonial properties, or the clean, new cities built as satellites to Cairo. Luxor is a city along the River Nile of nearly half a million, described as “the world’s greatest outdoor museum”, but also a popular choice for overseas buyers.

The two aces up Egypt’s sleeve are its 5,000 years of history, with pyramids and valleys of kings, plus its British connection. Many Egyptians speak English and have an affection for the country that ruled here for a century.
