A Guide to El Gouna’s Luxurious Real Estate: Choose the Style that Fits your Taste

A Guide to El Gouna’s Luxurious Real Estate: Choose the Style that Fits your Taste

One of the top places to visit in Egypt is El Gouna. Over the past 25 years, it developed from one man’s search to find the most beautiful spot on the seaside to a town that boasts 24,000 residents. Because it is a short flight away from Europe, many Europeans have chosen El Gouna as their preferred vacation spot.

If you haven’t visited El Gouna before, then I recommend you spend your next vacation there. It is the crème de la crème of Egypt and one of the few places within our borders that has a European environment. If you enjoy fine dining and clubbing, then El Gouna is unrivalled in Egypt. It is also a good place for relaxing, fishing trips, safaris, kite surfing and swimming.

If you already know El Gouna and have some money saved up, then you may want to consider buying a property there. In this article, Cooing explores the different residential areas and properties in El Gouna Egypt.
