Overview

About the property

Set among the sprawling hills of Santa Maria Estate in the exclusive location of Mellieha, this four-bedroom, brand new, contemporary villa is the latest addition to Shortletsmalta’s ever-growing repertoire. Always keen on broadening their horizons and breaking all boundaries of limitation, the directors of Shortletsmalta Ltd embarked on an ambitious project – a goal to create a luxury property in one of Malta’s most opulent neighbourhoods. The goal has been achieved, and Shortletsmalta now proudly present.

This villa features cutting-edge design, including a mixture of clean, crisp lines, minimalist décor, and prestigious materials, which combine to produce a natural flow between the outdoor and indoor areas of the property. The majestic, flexuous staircase leads to the main door of the property, located on the ground floor. Here the ground floor was transformed into a space fit for repose, a true relaxation haven. Large glass doors blur the lines between outside and inside, inviting those indoors to the breath-taking pool deck. The pool itself beckons you to take a dip, boasting a Zen-like water feature and awe-inducing infinity edges, making you feel like you are truly on top of the world. Tranquillity reigns once you dip in the pool and the spectacular view tops that up; the entire valley opens up beneath you, and the twinkling Mediterranean can be seen undulating in the distance. The sun-drenched deck offers al fresco dining facilities, as well as sun loungers which enable you to fully relax with the impressive view of the valley and the sea as your back drop.

The ground floor itself is made up of a large open plan kitchen, dining and living area. These areas combine harmoniously to provide a peaceful ambience; natural colours mimic the agrarian surroundings of the valley, while also providing a calm setting for the eyes. The dining and living areas lead to the state of the art kitchen, which is equipped with all cutlery and crockery. Also a full family bathroom is located on this floor complete with shower cubicle. Moreover, 2 back doors lead to the harmonious spa area complemented with jacuzzi, heated pool and sauna, together with a billiard table for those who are a relaxing game.

The lower floors house the three bedroom and adjoining bathrooms, set apart from the rest of the Villa to provide the tranquillity needed for a good night’s rest. One of the double bedrooms comes with an en-suite bathrooms with shower. The other 2 bedrooms consist of 3 single beds per room with another family bathroom on the same floor. Both double bedrooms enjoy a terrace of their own, equipped with outdoor furniture overflowing over the evergreen lawn. These create a personal oasis of serenity, where one can enjoy the fresh air of the morning, or the still, quiet air of the Maltese night. All bedrooms are fully air-conditioned, and free Wifi is offered throughout the property.

This Villa encompasses all necessary factors to ensure a serene and restful escape for anyone residing in it. Set apart from the hustle and bustle of city life, nestled in the midst of the Mellieha countryside, this property truly feels like an oasis of calmness amidst the hectic lifestyle of today. If you are looking for a relaxing escape - complete with infinity pool, indoor pool, Jacuzzi and state of the art décor – then look no further. Villa A ticks off all of these qualities, and more.

Please note that the rental price does not include the Environmental Contribution tax, introduced on June 2016 amounting to €0.50c per night up to a maximum of €5 for each continuous stay in the Maltese Islands. This applies for 18-year-old and older.

Mellieha is the Northern-most town in Malta, a former farmer’s village, still abundant in spectacular greenery and undeveloped areas. Unlike other Maltese towns and villages which are joined to their neighbouring localities, Mellieha is still a stand-alone location, divided from its neighbours by acres of open countryside and rocky stretches. This once small village has now grown into a fairly large town, quite popular with tourists, yet not as swarmed as Sliema or Bugibba. One can still find souvenir shops, tour agents and vehicle hire companies in Mellieha, however these touristic additions blend well with the humble surroundings of an intrinsically Maltese village.

Known for its thriving beach of the same name (known as Ghadira to us Maltese), Mellieha is much more than a beach town. Mellieha Bay is indeed the largest beach in Malta, and its long stretches of golden sand make for an ideal choice of beach especially for families with children. On this beach you can find loads of activities to do – from kid-friendly water sports on the bay, to more adventurous activities for adults – and there are sun beds and umbrellas which can be rented out for the day. There are also several restaurants down by the bay area, as well as multiple hotels which make the most of their location. The beach is located down a rather steep hill from the main village; however there is a bus from the beach to the town square for those who’d rather save their energy! The views from the town square are unrivalled; there are unobstructed views of the neighbouring islands of Comino and Gozo, while the sparkling Mediterranean provides an iridescent backdrop. The area is dominated by the Sanctuary dedicated to Our Lady of Mellieha, which dates back to the 17th Century. There is a cave which forms part of the Sanctuary, and one can see votive offerings throughout the Sanctuary’s walls. This village was very popular with pilgrims in medieval times, as they would come as a pilgrimage to the Sanctuary of Our Lady. Nowadays the square around the Sanctuary is one of the best viewpoints in Mellieha, commanding amazing views.

There are buses departing from this square which travel throughout Malta, however it is best to keep in mind that while Malta is considered small by foreign standards, this locality is still quite distant from the central part of the island. Bus trips to Valletta and Sliema may take a bit longer due to the distance; however buses are frequent and operate until around 11pm during the summer months. There are also many restaurants and bars to choose from in the town square, as well as grocery and convenience shops for daily needs.
