In an age of mass tourism, elegant accommodations in intimate settings are rare, but not impossible to find.
First opening its doors in March 2009, located in Cairo’s most lushly landscaped quarter of Maadi, the boutique hotel Villa Belle Époque is an ideal location to escape the hustle and bustle of the megalopolis we call home.
A 1920s residential property was completely renovated while remaining true to its colonial origins; Villa Belle Époque was born. A lush landscape of lemon, mango, olive, guava trees and centennial palms, surrounds the Villa, its swimming pools, sundecks and patios with a verdant view from every room.
Each corner of the exquisitely designed boutique hotel conjures up images of a bygone era, with rooms and suites, hallways and restaurants luxuriantly decorated to imbue an authentic period feel. The original works of contemporary Egyptian artists adorn the walls of Villa Belle Époque, fusing the ambiance of the belle époque with a modern Egyptian touch.
When first opened, the Villa featured thirteen rooms, each named for an Egyptian city. Today, Villa Belle Époque boasts a total of 32 unique rooms; an additional 19 new rooms were opened at the end of 2011, offering guests a home-away-from-home equipped with all the comforts of modern day living. This most recent renovation and expansion also saw the addition of a new swimming pool and another in-house restaurant.
