Lovely week here!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at villa Elma for a week in August, as 2 families with 2 children each. What a brilliant week! The pool was fantastic - a good size for a holiday villa and when it got too hot outside the kids used the indoor pool! Even though the house was 3 bedrooms the kids all slept together in the ensuite bedroom with was amply big enough to have a double bed and 2 put up beds. Franco was on hand to answer any questions / fix any issues very quickly. We were met by his mum at the property when we arrived at 2pm. She was very friendly, showed us round and explained everything & there were basics in the cupboards and fridge which was was really helpful. Franco came to the property to explain all the tech stuff and all about the local area after he finished work. The iPad to play music throughout the house and outside by the pool was great both day and at night for the adults when the kids were in bed! Everything in the house was great quality.

The house is around a 20 minute walk to naxxar centre but up 2 steep hills so not ideal for young (tired) children but the lure of ice cream and a playground at the top was helpful! Naxxar is a small residential town but has a few restaurants / bars including the beautiful Palazzo Parisio where you can have amazing cakes! As Malta isn't big it's easy to get to pretty much everywhere on the island if you have a car. We didn't use buses but there did seem to be a good service from naxxar.

In terms of shops there is valyou supermarket at the top of the hill, at the edge of naxxar centre and we used to go to maypole for fresh bread each day, which is about the same distance as the main supermarket but down the hill.

We would all definitely come back! We come to malta every year to visit family but always have a week in an apartment as well. We have stayed in many places and this was certainly in our top 3 in the 17 years we have been coming!

Thanks Franco for a great stay!

The Micallef and Paphitis families

High end

  • 5 of 5

Simply fantastic. I'm worried about recommending it too highly as I'll want to book it again and don't want it to be taken! I travel to Malta a lot and have stayed in a number of places and this was definitely at the upper end of what's out there. In addition, the host and his family were superb and unlike many other Maltese hosts I've used before, they understood what's appropriate for a family on holiday and were a perfect mix of being very helpful and accommodating without being over-bearing, imposing or invasive. Parking is really easy (on and off property) which is a huge bonus in Malta. It's not by the sea but is really central and easy to get to most places even if you don't know Malta too well.

First class villa

  • 5 of 5

The kids opening lines on running into the villa.......look at the pool,response..........which one!?!?

First Franco - great owner/host nothing was too much trouble

The villa - top quality fixtures/fittings all mod cons - kids loved controlling the music around either on the two pools by using the iPad

Location - depends what you want to if you need a car,we didn't bother & taxis are very cheap again booked through the iPad

In short would we/we will return yes of course don't hesitate's the best.

Thanks Franco

Best mix of hospitality, comfort, accessibility and domotica

  • 5 of 5

What a great stay! Many thanks to Franco, our host. Any question we had was already answered as the iPad was filled with tips on transport, sites, restaurants, shopping etc. The house is perfectly equipped with great domotica and space. When you are with 7-8 people, be smart and book this villa. It's in the heart of Malta, near great restaurants in Naxxar (walking distance!), supermarkets and great sites such as Medina.
