Interaction with guests
I live in England but visit the villa twice a year to check on maintenance. In Egypt we have a housekeeper working for us and also a Boab (doorman/gardener). They both look after this villa and Villa Sahara full time. I keep in close telephone contact with them and I am easily contactable for you if there are any problems. I have friend who carries out the maintenance for us and we also have numbers for taxi service.
