The Jolie Ville hotel is a perfect place to unwind and relax. It’s set on its own island in the Nile – King’s Island – a ten minute drive from central Luxor. Currently ranked 9th of 63 hotels in Luxor on TripAdvisor.
Sadly right now it’s off limits and unable to welcome holidaymakers drawn by its fabulous botanical-like gardens, vast swimming pools and dreamy view of the Nile. So while the Coronavirus lockdown is in place in so much of the world, those of you who, like me, love to travel in your imagination, might like a little look at where my central character Meredith Pink was staying when she embarked on her adventures in Egypt.
The Jolie Ville hotel really is the most magical place to stay. These photographs bring it all flooding back, and remind me to book to go back just as soon as I possibly can.
Merry is on a “time out” holiday after taking voluntary redundancy from her job when she stays there. She couldn’t have imagined the thrilling escapades she was about to embark upon, unlocking mysteries from ancient Egypt.
Here are links (just click the picture) to the first three books, all based at this wonderful hotel – although Merry’s adventures take her all over Egypt.
