About Chris Cachia

Holiday Villas Malta is a family run enterprise and we strive to provide Holiday accommodation that is unique, typical of Maltese warmth and hospitality, and above all of very high standards. We take personal care in ensuring that our Villas provide all the expected amenities and personally handle tenant issues.

The Villas were designed and built by the owner, Chris Cachia, an architect by profession with a keen eye for aesthetic detail as well as an expert in Maltese architecture. Chris has ensured that the Villas retain the local style in both design and the authentic building materials used. They are all built to high standards, with large rooms and wide open spaces. Chris gave special attention to natural lighting and ventilation to ensure that the occupant enjoys the Maltese sunshine even when indoors.

Mrs. Josette Cachia, the owner's wife handles client queries and manages the day to day running of the Villas which includes managing a team of plumbers, electricians, pool maintenance staff, cleaners and so on. The Cachia's home is very close to the Villas and they are always prepared to help.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Villa Strawberry is quaint and so warm.. I never imagined that Malta could be so beautiful and that there would be so much to see and do even in Winter !

Good base

  • 5 of 5

A very charming house. We were met by Josette, the owner, who handed us the keys and answered our queries. The house itself is charming and provided us with a good base to tour the island which is beautiful. Next time will try to come in summer to be able to enjoy the pool!

A very charming house restored to its original features. It provided a lovely base to explore Malta. The house has a well-equipped kitchen and all necessities. It was very clean and the owners were very helpful. The pool area was lovely as well. Would surely recommend it!

Quaint villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house recently and must say that it was a relaxing holiday. The house is a typical Maltese farmhouse with swimming pool. It provided all necessary amenities and we all loved chilling out by the pool and having barbecues in the evening. Overall we really enjoyed our stay!

WOW

  • 5 of 5

A very well-kept, well-equipped and clean villa in a quiet location. We opted to spend our holiday in a self-catering villa as we had two of our children and in-laws staying with us. We enjoyed the laid back atmosphere, relaxing by the pool and organizing barbecues in the evening! A truly enjoyable and relaxing holiday. Will be back next year!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with our two young boys (aged 4 and 1) and loved it. We rented a car and this was a great home base for us to explore the rest of Malta from. We especially loved being able to come home after a busy day exploring and cool off in our own pool. Our 4 year old even learned to swim on his own. He'll never forget having his own pool!

Great Place for a Wonderful Stay at a Fascinating Place

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to have spent a little over a week in Malta in March, and we were even luckier to have booked Strawberry Villa as a place to stay for our little group. It was spacious, scrupulously clean, fully equipped and well located outside Valetta, right opposite the local bus stop with low-cost service into the city. The manager, Josette, was wonderful and went out of her way to be helpful, arranging a mid-week tour and even locating a lost hat and ensuring its return. Malta is a hidden jewel (possibly not so hidden nowadays). We should have stayed longer. If you need three bedrooms and privacy for each member of a group, and want excellent cooking facilities, close to a nearby butcher shop and grocery, at a very reasonable price, this is an ideal place. It wasn't the season to make use of the outdoor facilities, including the pool, but this would be nice in the summer. Superb place and a joy to live in for our week of tourism in Malta!

Marsascala offers you a relaxed atmosphere while still boasting a myriad of activities. The immediate area includes a number of well known restaurants and entertainment venues. Be it a quick snack or a full blown fish banquet, it is only a short drive away. You can walk along the picturesque promenade while on your way to dinner and get to know the locals who will undoubtedly be coming from or going to the same restaurants. An evening walk or an early morning job along the popular Marsascala promenade is an experience in itself.

Marsascala is also very close to the old town of Zejtun which is a typical Maltese Village surrounding a church. At Zejtun you can truly experience the Maltese way of living. The well know fishing village of Marsaxlokk is also close by. Like Marsacala, this village is much sought after for its fish restaurants. Marsaxlokk is very popular with tourists and locals alike for its fresh fish market which is set up every morning. You should reserve a morning for a stroll through this busy market and enjoy seeing fresh Mediterranean fish being sold and then order a fish lunch in one of the many restaurants that encircle the picturesque bay. The bay is usually full of traditional Maltese fishing boats unless you visit during a time when the fishermen are out fishing of course!
