Villa Apartments in a Spectacular location near to everything!

Bedrooms 2
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Villa with apartments , sleeps from 4 to 15 persons.

'Villa Lyss Apartment' is located in a tranquil and peaceful location in the village of Mellieha found in the northern part of Malta. This stylish apartment is set within an exclusive privately owned villa residence perched on a hilltop. The tastefully decorated apartment has 2 bedrooms, and shares a larger than average pool of 45' x 15', surrounded by a large sundeck area decorated with palm trees and shrubs which add a relaxed feeling together with sun loungers and parasols to compliment the area around the pool.

The Island of Malta region Part 1: Malta – the very name conjures up thoughts of the George Cross and enough historical sights to keep you busy for a month. But there's so much more to this little beauty than a fascinating past. These days you're just as likely to hear about its film locations and nightlife as you are its history and culture.

The Hollywood swords 'n' sandals epics Troy, Gladiator and Alexander were all filmed on the island's sunny shores. World famous DJs are flocking here to spin some discs at the up-and-coming hotspots. But though Malta's image is changing fast, its breathtaking beauty remains one of the key things that draws people back year after year. Wherever you go, the island's eye-popping scenery provides a sigh-inducing backdrop. And as for all that history, with so much of the past still visible today, there's no wonder it's known as an open-air museum.

The Island of Malta region Part 2: Travel back in time to discover Malta's mysterious prehistory. Retrace the footsteps of St Paul. Or see where the Knights of St John defended Christendom. But Malta is no regular museum. Here life is lived to the full, so be prepared to get stuck into the Mediterranean way of life. Throw yourself into carnivals and make the most of the island's packed calendar of events. If you're looking for a destination that offers more than just a suntan, Malta's a first class choice and even more enjoyable when staying at Villa Lyss.

How To get there? Part 1: Flights to Malta

Flight time to Malta's International Airport from London airports is just 3-3½ hours. Other UK airports will be roughly 30 minutes longer. Malta is also served by numerous other large European airports and is very well connected.

Which airlines operate from UK?

Lovely villa with a good pool

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 10 with ages ranging from 6 to 86 and we all had a brilliant holiday in Villa Lyss. We hired the three apartments so had plenty of room and had the pool to ourselves. The villa is in walking distance of shops, banks and restaurants. We barbequed most nights so didn't visit the restaurants. The villa was spotlessly clean and Ray and Maria were very helpful without being intrusive. Would love to go back there.

Great for our family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Lyss for a week in May. We travelled with our two children aged 3 and 7 months. We had the ground floor apartment which was perfect for our family. All of the rooms were spacious, clean and safe. We had everything we needed including a really good travel cot and high chair. The shared pool and outside areas were beautiful and again secure and safe for our family. Our son loved the pool and swam at least twice a day. The outdoor eating area had morning sunshine which we enjoyed everyday. Ray and Marie (owners) were very accommodating and made sure that we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay - including a few toys for the children. Ray and Marie live on the top floor of the apartment which is great as they are around if you need them but they still allow you time and space to relax and feel comfortable. Mellieha itself is a great location to explore Malta - we hired a car which isn't essential but it made our trip easier. Parking is easy at the Villa and in most locations around Malta. Thanks again to Ray and Marie for having us!

Perfect Malta all means

  • 5 of 5

My family and me, four in total, had 10 supreme days in one of Ray's apartments located in a tranquil area in Mellieha. Both the quality of the apartment and the outer facilities are of high class, and so is the view over the valley from the pool area.

Around 20 minutes by foot to Mellieha Bay with one of the best sandy beaches...alternatively 5-7 minutes to the nearest bus stop, offering trouble-free and frequent transportation, whether it is to Mellieha Bay or Valetta.

Ray and his family are very helpfull and strives to make your stay in Malta as comfortable as possible, and can be fully recommended.

Thank you, Debono's, for a very nice holiday in your apartment and lovely country...we will be back again.

Feeling at home

  • 5 of 5

It is a wonderful apartment with very gentle and helpful owners. Our apartment in the villa lyss had a large living room, a spacious kitchen, and two comfortable bed rooms. The owners of this house live in the top floor of the building. Below are two apartments, which we had rented one of them. At the basement there is a third apartment for rent. The kitchen was fully equipped: microwave, oven, freezer, enough towels and plenty tableware and glasses (so you do not have to wash after every meal). From the balcony we had even slight sea view. The pool are is very nice with a long pool, deck chairs, and beautiful plants such as palm trees. The friendly owners provided several toys for the kids such as Lego bricks, balls, and a surf board.

Aldrig har vi haft et bedre ophold på noget feriested.

Rigtig dejlig lejlighed med masser af plads. Tæt på byen og bybusserne og alligevel i meget roligt kvarter. Ray var venlig og uhyre hjælpsom. Kan kun anbefales til et ophold på Malta.

Superb for couple

  • 5 of 5

This place is superb, even better than on the pictures - clean, quiet and on the date we arrived it was all ours. Quiet with beautiful view ideal for couples!

Ray is the very helpful and kind. You can ask him where to eat , what to see and where to go if you ran out of ideas.

From the terrace you can even see Etna if the air is clear!

There is a bus stop near the house but as the one local man said: If you don't want to ruin your day - don't wait for it. Of course it's not Rays fault but we wanted to mention this for people like us traveling without rented car. 300m walk from Ray's there is a bus stop with about 7 lines so you can get to any part of the island easily.

Hope to visit him again,

Cheers from Poland,

Maciek and Agata

Mellieha Bay

Want to break away from holidaying hoards and get to the heart of Malta? Try Mellieha.

A sleepy atmosphere. A small, picturesque centre. A people famed for their pragmatism, independence and friendly welcome. Mellieha has a distinctly rural charm.

Scout about the centre's church, complete with underground grotto. Crawl back fifty years in the famous World War II shelters and see how the Maltese people earned that George Cross. The Xemxija Heritage Route has everything from Roman roads to megaliths or for some recent history, visit the 8 tons of nails and 2000 gallons of paint that make up the set of Popeye the Movie's Sweethaven.

To reach Malta's longest sandy beach, simply take the road through the centre of town down to Mellieha Bay and head to Ghadira Beach. Sun, sand and watersports – what more does a beach need?

Eating out isn't an issue. International and local cuisine, familiar and fascinating food are all on the menu. Be warned however, our apartment is so cosy!!
