Fantastic stay: stunning villa and location

5 of 5
Our party of 9 (5 adults, 4 children) recently spent a wondeful week at the Dolce Vita in Mellieha. In Malta to attend a family wedding, it was our first time visiting the island and we loved it. The villa is absolutely stunning, clean, spacious, great facilities and beautiful views from the balconies which make a great setting for meals and drinks. The villa is set over 3 levels so there are lots of steps which may be a consideration for anyone with very young children. However there is also a lift within the villa which was great and very useful (especially for moving luggage around!) The living areas, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms are furnished and equipped to a high standard and the owner had arranged a travel cot as requested for our young child. The pool is fantastic, cleaned daily, it was the focal point for much of our stay. It is a deep pool so bear that in mind for any non-swimmers. In the Maltese heat, it was the perfect place to cool off and for everyone to swim, jump in etc. The villa is set high up in the Santa Maria estate so I would recommend a car as an essential, especially if you want to explore the island (it's an uphill 2km walk to the nearest shops). The upside is the area is lovely and peaceful. No noise at all from any neighbours during our stay (I suspect we were the noisy ones with 4 young children having fun in the pool!) The local supermarket is ideal, large and has everything you might expect and more. The beaches are beautiful, worth the drive to see them. Munchies was a great place to eat beachside amd very child friendly. We also took the hornblower ferry to Gozo and the blue lagoon: would highly recommend that trip. Communications and arrangements with the villa owner Margaret were superb and she was able to answer all our questions and arranged airport transfer, recommended car hire etc; a pleasure to deal with. Altogether it was a wondeful, memorable week, our first visit to Malta and I'm sure it won't be our last! We would recommend a stay at the Dolce Vita to anyone.
