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.
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.
We were a group of three families, six adults and five children aged from 6 to 10.
For us it was ideal deal to rent all three apartments of the villa. It was great to hang out and dine together at the pool area, but it was also convenient to be able to cook and rest in the privacy of the separate apartments every now and then. The pool area had many cozy lounge areas here and there, but it could have felt a bit too crowded had there been some other peace and privacy loving guests instead of friends and family.
The pool itself was fantastic according to the children. Us adults enjoyed it very much as well although the water was a bit chilly since the weather was not that hot in October anymore. Also the water was in need of a little cleaning. In the evening the illuminated pool area was very pretty.
The apartments had reasonably well equipped kitchens and washing machines which was convenient with the children. The bathroom of the sky blue apartment was roomy, but the ones in the yellow and orange apartments were on the small side. The orange apartment is probably more suitable for a couple than a family of four. It would have been possible to unite the blue and orange apartments by opening a communicating door. The air inside the apartments got a little stuffy at times probably due to the moist weather and the fact that the apartments were on the ground/basement level.
The surrounding area in Madliena was very peaceful and had lots of beautiful houses and gardens. The restaurants and grocery stores were a bit further away down the hill, but many stores and restaurants offer free home delivery. We also made many trips to the stores by foot and carried our food and water bottles in our backpacks up the hill for a fun and very effective exercise.
The hosts, Paul and Josanne, were very helpful and flexible in adjusting to our timetable (our flight arrived very early but we were allowed to check in whilst some of the apartments were still being cleaned). We got great tips for day trips and help in organizing a minibus to take us around the islands. The hosts were very discreet and we hardly even noticed they were there but help was always quickly available when needed. Paul and Josanne were also very patient and friendly although the kids got quite lively at times.
We think that the description of the Colours apartments by the owners is realistic and our expectations were met or even exceeded. We would recommend the apartments especially for larger groups.
The property and gardens were lovely. Apartments were clean and well equipped. We were a large group and Paul and Josanne were very accomodating. We were very sad to leave but would love to go back in the near future as the children are still raving about it! Absolutely wonderful stay
What can I say?
Our stay at the sky blue apartment was amazing. The accomodation was clean and well presented with a pool area that really is an oasis. The place looks just as good in reality as does in the pictures.
Paul and Josanne are two of the most friendly and accomodating people you could wish to meet. They are very welcoming and attentive yet they are never imposing and your privacy is always respected. Nothing is too much trouble and they will always go out of their way to make sure your stay is as comfortable and stress free as possible.
I have visited Malta many times and I can safely say we will definitely be staying here again, you really do get the personal touch.

The pool area is a little paradise away from the towns and busy areas. Car hire is recommended but the bus stop is only a short walk from the apartment and taxis can be ordered from the owners or online.
The owners are a delightful couple and were very helpful during our stay. The rooms are clean with plenty of space. We were a group of 9 and didn't even use all the beds and extra beds can be provided.
Everyone was very happy with the apartments and would definitely stay here again if returning to Malta.
Our stay at this villa was well beyond what was expected. A truly lovely place to to stay. All we needed was there, and the rest. Any queries we had were quickly answered by the lovely couple who own the villa. Even when one of our group had a bad injury they drove her to A&E and waited for her. Accomadation was great, and a charming area to swim, BBQ, party and relax in. I would definetly go back here again! An overall 10/10 stay!
Paul and josanne were the upmost wonderful hosts, they put up with a group of 10 Scottish friends, they must be super hosts.
the villa itself was homely and well maintained. the outside area where we spent most of our time as it was the most beautiful garden and pool area, was well maintained, clean and full of fun structures. we dined outside using there stone bbq and sat in the gazebo with a lovely view of the pool and waterfall which leads to a hidden cove Jacuzzi bath. they were the pleasant couple who even put up with us for a meal which was cooked by us so they are brave to have even ate it. it was honestly one of the best vacations I have been on, and it had a huge amount to do with paul and josanne. I cant wait to get back to malta and play again in the sun and the pool and maybe have another trip to best ice cream shop ever with the two of them. huge thanks to the two of them.
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.
