Our guests can enjoy and experience Cairo in our luxurious and richly decorated suites. Our suites have it all, with ample space to work, relax and enjoy the tranquility of Maadi’s sprawling gardens.
Situated in the heart of Maadi, Villa Belle Époque allows visitors to relive the comfort & elegance of a bygone era while enjoying every modern amenity.
Villa Belle Époque was built in the 1920s, and recently refurbished to reflect its colonial origins. Occupying a 1300 square meter plot, the hotel, its swimming pool, sundecks and patios are surrounded by lemon, mango, olive and guava trees, intermingled with centennial palms. Richly, yet understatedly decorated with a period feel, and embellished with works of contemporary Egyptian art, Villa Belle Époque allows visitors to relive the comfort and elegance of a bygone era while enjoying every modern amenity.
The boutique hotel is just 12 kilometers from Cairo’s center in Maadi, a Nile-side suburb whose name means ‘ferry-boats’. Since its founding in 1907 along the river’s east bank, this meticulously planned quarter was and remains synonymous with privilege. It was here that wealthy, cosmopolitan Cairenes built their stately residences and filled their sprawling gardens with a stunning array of exotic plants and trees. Now home to over a dozen embassies, and much of the capital’s multi-cultural expatriate community, Maadi is a relaxed, sophisticated and sought-after area of the capital.
Our concierge services include composing tailor-made tours and proposing delightful activities. High-tea by the Nile, winter bonfires, visits to Cairo’s opera house, museums, art galleries and craft workshops, walking-tours of Maadi’s historic homes and gardens, are just a few of the options. Those who wish to travel to Upper Egypt and elsewhere will likewise find the knowledgeable assistance that only an experienced, creative host can provide. For travelers who wish to feel a part of a place, not just visit it, Villa Belle Époque holds the key to all the best that Egypt has to offer.
