Luxor's holiday temples of boom - Times Online
We made the Sunday Times, whoop whoop Luxor's holiday temples of boom - Times Online: "Jane Akshar, 55, a former IT consultant who moved from London after meeting her Egyptian husband, Mahmoud Jahlan. The couple have been developing properties on the west bank for eight years. Although they keep most of them for holiday rental, they sell a few on a shared freehold basis: among them is a three-bedroom, two-bathroom, 220 sq metre flat with a big terrace, priced at £100,000. It’s in Goubli, a block of flats with its own pool and restaurant. Other three-bedders there bring in about £7,500 gross rent a year, says Akshar, who offers a marketing and management service (flatsinluxor.co.uk).
