Great location, close to town church surrounded by good pubs and restaurants.
Dahlet qorrot beach is a must visit, also hondog. The property has everything you need.
Clean and tidy.
For a splashout meal go to Country cottage overlooking the harbour, it is excellent.
Just returned from a wonderful 2 weeks trip feeling very happy and rested!
We had never been to Malta before so we weren’t sure exactly where the best place to stay was. The villa (based in mellieha) is perfectly situated to explore the island. As the bus links are so good I wouldn’t imagine it was necessary to hire a car but we did as we had a toddler in tow and made it easier to get around.
Margaret was a fantastic host and even left us a few crucial supplies, which was extremely helpful as we arrived quite late at night. She was also on hand to ask any questions we had and any help we needed.
She also set us up with a baby cot, high chair and baby bath.
The basement apartment, which we had, was set up with everything you might want and there was a great little shop at the top of the hill selling everything you might need (VALYOU). The pool is lovely in the warm summer months with plenty of space on the sunloungers. There is also a dining area by the pool with great panoramic views – lovely for enjoying a glass of wine and watching the sun set.
There are plenty of restaurants in mellieha itself, L’amigo and Randi were our personal favourites.. fantastic and well-priced traditional Maltese food. Attached to VALYOU is a great little café which is perfect to grab some lunch and does a fantastic takeaway.
I would perhaps have some change handy, as the a/c is coin-operated so it’s always useful to have some spare Euros lying around.
It’s a great base if you want to really explore Malta but is also really great if you just wanted to do nothing and relax by the pool! It's very tempting to just stay in.
My only advice would be, get decent car insurance as the driving can be.. erratic shall we say and everywhere is quite hilly. It didn’t bother us as we found it great exercise between activities. Anywhere you stay in Malta has the potential for a steep hill before you end up in town for the evening. It can be quite nice to have a walk back home after some evening food but I would definitely not bother with any high heels! :)
Already missing the lovely food, pool and sun! Will definitely be back as soon as possible.
Thanks again Margaret for a wonderful stay and all of your help.
