Overview

Madliena Apartment Rental Photos and Description

An escape to a serene and peacful hamlet but minutes away from entertainment hub

A choice of 3 tranquil villa apartments with all amenities in this exclusive part of Malta. Quiet and peaceful yet only minutes away from the entertainment hub of Paceville and the more popular St. Julians Bay with its many restaurants and great bars. Properties also enjoys the use of a large swimming pool (41 sq m), sunbeds, deckchairs, hammock for a couple, 3 seater hammock swing, rocking bench, large umbrellas, gazebo seating for 8, barbecue area with its own fridge and kitchen facilities, shower and WC facilities by pool area. The dedicated solar heating system for the pool allows use of the pool from April to October. Access to pool area is via wooden bridge over large cascading koy fish pond. A further gazebo with vine tree is adjacent to a smaller water turtle pond. Very romantic setting in this hilltop area with extensive views of Malta, where the tropical garden and the cascading waters from the fish ponds continue to add to the serenity that the whole place seems to create.

Our pets: Our garden, although small, is very mature and extremely well kept, providing a tranquil atmosphere, also helped by the sound of the cascading waters in the background. Our own pets, (cats and dog), other than the koy fish and turtles already mentioned, also have their own separate dens, and are well kept, pampered and cared for.

For those who want more out of their holiday: The pool and garden areas have proven to be a refreshing start or close to any day, particularly if this was a warm or even a blistering one. But Malta has much more to offer than just lazing about in the sun. For this reason we have teamed up with some of the most interesting tour, leisure and event operators on the island, providing day cruises around the Maltese archipelago on a Turkish gullet, an evening’s entertainment extravaganza live show on the 1565 Great Siege of Malta, a visit to the nearby water marine park, an unforgettable once-in-a-lifetime experience swim with the dolphins, or how about exploring some of the most interesting dive sites in the Mediterranean. In collaboration with our friends at Go Dive Malta, we are now also able to offer this experience to practically everyone, from beginners to dive masters. Transport arrangements have also been secured for all these events to pick our guests from our apartments (or very close by).

What we stand for.: We have been called ‘a home away from home’ by some of our past guests, a name which honours us completely, and while we continue to dispense recommendations on what to do and where to go during your stay to help you better discover these culture-packed islands, we will strive to live up to that name and better our product.

What makes this apartment unique

The swimming pool is equipped with a dedicated solar heating system, almost guaranteeing the use of the swimming pool even for the summer shoulder-months, such as best part of April and October.

We are now also pleased to inform all our guests that the new jacuzzi installation is complete and running. The idea behind this was to replace our 4 seater open Jacuzzi with one that actually holds 9 people; this walk-in construction also takes the shape of a cave rather than having to leave the pool to get to the Jacuzzi bringing a whole new meaning to luxury. The pictures were taken during the night to add to the affect of the new lighting fixtures in the harem chill-out seating area. There is also a water rainfall to the entrance of the jacuzzi to add to the tropical ambiance and feel of this vibrant place.

In essence, the pool has been installed with a new liner; we have also replaced the lights in the pool with LED lighting, which also gives us the facility of altering the colour from blue, orange, red, green, purple, amber, and also a random selection of colours, making swimming at night a whole new experience altogether.

The inside of the jacuzzi is constantly painted in a soft blue light, which is accentuated by the silver coloured tiling inside as this reflects off it during the night, perfectly complimenting eachother.

The seating above the jacuzzi has been a real surprise as it turned out to be even better than what we had ever imagined it to be. Here we have placed garden furniture blending in perfectly to the setting. The frame to this area is fabricated out of wood with sack covering on top, giving it that harem feeling as you climb up the stairs and lounge in what is already a favourite area of many of our guests.

At the same time, we have also replaced our chlorination system to one that is more green, as this not only eliminates the taste of chlorine but makes the water that much clearer, making it even more enticingly exciting.

Brilliant!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at the Colours villa, Madliena, late September / early October 2014, when we got married at the nearby Torre Paulina. In total there were 11 of us sharing, 4 couples and 3 individuals.

It was nothing short of superb! The apartments provided us with all that we needed. The pool, gardens, jacuzzi and other outdoor facilities were exquisite, especially with us having exclusive use. Being able to crawl out of bed and jump into our own pool was sheer luxury! The weather was glorious.

The villa is situated in a complex with other villas and is secluded, with no outside interference. You’ll need a hire car or taxis to get about, though, as the villa is located at the top of a big hill!

We cannot thank the hosts, Paul and Josanne, enough! Their local knowledge, assistance and willingness to go the extra mile proved invaluable and made our stay both relaxing and very memorable; they even put out the red carpet when we got back from our wedding!

Their family dog, Hank, also kept us amused.

We would have no hesitation in recommending the villa.

Julie, Steve and family.

gran bella casa. proprietario simpatico e cordiale, gli appartamenti sono belli e ben arredati, la posizione della casa è buona a 25 minuti a piedi da paceville ma consiglio la macchina per chi non avesse tanta voglia di camminare. voto 5 stelle su 5!

A beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

My (now) husband and I decided to get married this year in Malta and booked all three apartments for our family and friends because we loved the pictures of the outside area and wanted our reception to be held there. On arrival I am pleased to say the pictures did it wonderful justice. The outside is just beautiful and my husband and nephew made good use of the pool and jacuzzi. We also made lovely use of the BBQ area. Paul and Josanne where brilliant hosts and went above and beyond to help us get ready for our wedding, from Josanne helping to bake our wedding cake to decorating the outside area. No request from us was too much for them and along with their son they helped to make the wedding preprations go very smoothly and we would like to thank them so much for all that they did.

The apartments are in a lovely quiet area. We had a beautiful wedding and the apartments along with Paul and Joasanne's assistance helped to make it such a special day. We will definately be returning to Malta and will definately be staying here again.

Group of Dutch students

  • 4 of 5

I was here with a group of Dutch students about a week ago, and we had a great time! We rented all three appartments and I can say the Sky Blue is the one I liked the most. A big plus of this villa is that it has a wonderful quiet and peaceful garden with things you wouldn't find in every place. Little bridges, a koy karper pond, a gazebo and even a place where they have turtles! Nice lightning at night. They have a nice place to have barbecues as well including a big barbecue stand where we could make use of. There are no busy roads in the neighborhood, so that's a plus, and the area is great for walks or jogging as we did. Paceville, where all the nightlife is is nearby and was very cheap by taxi.

Marvellous Madliena

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from our all too short holiday at these appartments having booked out all three for an extended family holiday, and all in our group agree that the description and photos do not do total justice to the villa, it is fantastic.

Josanne & Paul are a smashing couple who provide a first class venue and support, for a relaxed, care free, do as you please holiday, we were met at the airport, provided with welcome packs and made completely at home.

Some members of our group had not been to Malta before but are now fully paid up members of the "I LOVE MALTA" brigade.

To sum up, fantastic villa, wonderfull hosts,make a very enjoyable holiday we would highly reccomend, we all hope to return, in the not to distant future to marvellous madliena.

Group of Dutch men

  • 4 of 5

We rented all three apartments with a group of 8 Dutch men, all in our early twenties, and we had a great time in Malta and in the house.

The house is located in a very quiet neighbourhood, but Paceville, the centre of the Maltese nightlife, is nearby and very easy to reach with the cheap cabs. The garden is very nice with the big swimmingpool and plenty of places to sit or tan. The inside of the house is not very luxurious, but it has everything you need. Because the apartments are located in the basement of the building and numerous fans are present, it always remains relatively cool inside.

The owners are very helpful: they made sure we were picked up from the airport, drove us to the supermarket and gave some suggestions for activities we could do. They even offered to help making reservations for them. Although they live above the apartments, you don't see them around a lot. But you can always knock on the door with questions. A couple of times their staff was cleaning the garden in the morning. While they were working, Hank, the watchdog was walking around the garden. Watch out for him, he likes beach balls!

Madliena's pristine location between two valleys provides a perfect opportunity for countryside walks. This hamlet is located on one of the highest points on the island thus helping to 'cool' down the hot summer nights with its gentle breeze off the nearby coastal areas. From here one can see right across the island, all the way from Marsaxlokk, to Mdina, Valletta, and the north of the island. An important feature in Madliena are the Victoria lines where a natural fault runs roughly east to west across the island. It was the British who, by 1900 built a series of forts with intervening walls and gun emplacements along the 12km of the ridge. Because of its vantage point, Madliena was mostly used for military reasons with the most important site being the Madliena Tower. Within close vicinity, one can also find the Meditteraneo Water Park, Malta’s only marine park. This is a popular place with its many water rides, attraction pools and marine part where one can also swim with dolphins.
