A perfect family holiday.
We stayed for one month (March) in Unit 2. It was a wonderful holiday for our family with two small kids (2 and 5).
The pictures perfectly reflect how the villa looks like inside and outside. Sometimes advertisement photos tend to be more glamorous then reality, but not in this case!! The apartment is full of light, cosy, modern, stylish and the views are magnificent. I would add that a view from the living room window was sometimes worth staying at home and not going anywhere ;)
There was everything we needed in the property, even the gas heater which is necessary for the early spring. The apartment was neat and clean, and an exceptionally friendly maid helped us to tidy up during our stay for a good price. The owner helped us with each tiny problem and question we had.
The kids didn't swim in the pool (too cold in March), but we enjoyed it. The same with the sea: clean transparent water and smooth sand (Mellieha bay beach, five minutes drive).
There are plenty of shops with fresh vegetables and fruits, meat and fish in a five min walking distance. On the main street which is close to the villa you can find playgrounds for kids, cafes, bars, restaurants, souvenir shops, car hire and English courses. Nearby there is also a brand new area for family sports with a running/jogging trek, stadium for playing football and basketball and some other facilities.
Mellieha is definately a small, sweet and quiet village. If you want to get somewhere you can easily take a bus so car hire is not really necessary. The places we highly recommend to visit: Parish church of Mellieha, St. Agatha's tower (the Red Tower), Selmun castle, island of Gozo, Chapel of Immaculate conception - mostly for breathtaking views; the Popeye village and Ta' Qali BOV adventure park - for entertaining kids.
If we have a chance we will undoubtedly return to this villa for a holiday.
