Mellieha is a rural village and tourist resort in the Northwestern part of Malta and derives its name from the Semitic root 'm-l-h' which in Arabic means salt. The town centre boasts of its splendid hotels, fine restaurants and traditional cute shops. It has a majestic baroque church (built in late 19th century) and various cultural organizations including band clubs. Mellieha's main festive season occurs in the first two weeks of September and reaches its climax on the 8th September. During these days various cultural manifestations are held, such as musical concerts, fireworks, folk singing, art exhibitions and the traditional religious procession. The town's people, ''Il-Mellehin'', are renowned for their laborious nature, their ironic sense of humour, and their friendliness and hospitality. Those who visit us, no matter where they hail from, do not merely enjoy themselves but feel at home!

'Splendido' in every respect. A fantastic time was had by all in this superb and immaculate villa. The Channons .

We have had the best of times-thank you so much. The villa is a dream to behold and to stay in - everything is the height of luxury! We cannot wait to come back! Cathy, Steve, Bev& John.

Don't want to go home. It is the best and biggest villa we have ever stayed in. Sharon, Bernard and family.

Even before we arrived you ensured all our needs were met and when we finally saw the villa we were dumb founded at all the little touches in place to make a truly wonderful holiday, even better!Julianne

About Fiona Bugeja

I am Fiona; born and bred in the beautiful Mediterranean island of Malta. Together with my husband Kenneth, who designed and built our two Villas, we have two adorable children Emma and Sean. I left my career in the tourism industry to dedicate my whole time to raising our kids and hosting our guests. Villa Aurora welcomed our first guests in 2007 whilst our latest addition Villa Aurelia has recently complemented its twin villa. My husband and I are fully committed to see to it that during your stay with us we’ll ensure that you make the most of your holiday. Our Villas are situated at the Santa Maria Villa Estate in the quant sea-side resort of Mellieha.

We sincerely look forward to welcoming you very soon :).

Fiona Bugeja purchased this villa in 2010

Why Fiona Bugeja chose Santa Maria Estate

The villa is close to all amenities but most of all a short driving distance to the golden sandy beaches of the North of Malta. It is very well positioned half-way down the hill from the main road, a walking distance to where all the shops and restaurants are situated, and the blue Mediterranean sea :).

What makes this villa unique

Private, Very comfortable and Tastefully Designed.

Villa Aurelia:

If you are not rich, you feel rich. If you are rich, you feel at home :)!!

Absolutely fantastic - exceed expectations

  • 5 of 5

If anything the villa was better that what you thought it might be from the description, stunning.

Swimming pool, hot tub, bbq and games room so great for kids. Rooms were really spacious and villa is finished to a very high standard. Fiona is amazing and helpful before and during our stay. Providing great information on restaurants and places to visit during out stay. She even help organise the car hire.

The villa ideally located in north of island in one of the nicer parts of Malta and ideal for a day trip to Gozo.

Thoroughly recommend it.

Incredible home with all the amenities of home and more. Highest of standards and the owner, Fiona, is such a delight, has seen to every detail. Perfect location in quiet area with wonderful views. We loved the hot tub after a hectic day of sightseeing. Pool was lovely with many seating areas to enjoy the sunshine and views.

Wow. Just Wow!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Thanksgiving week and I can honestly say it is the most spectacular home I've been in, much less stayed in. It is even more beautiful that the photos. Every detail has been thought of and Fiona and Ken are two of the nicest, most hospitable people you could ever hope to meet. They gave us recommendations of what to do and see, and even the best roads to take (your GPS will take on some harrowing drives on narrow and harrowing roads). Will definitely be back!

Relaxing at its Best

  • 5 of 5

The villa offers everything we could have asked for. It is absolutely perfect for a luxurious and most relaxing holiday. The customer service provided by the owners was fantastic: very personal, accomodating and charming. Our whole family loved the villa and we can highly recommend the villa to everyone, including families with young children.

If you won the lotto you'd live here!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6 that stayed in Villa Aurora for 1 week in Sept. We have rented villas in France, Italy and Spain over the last few years and we can honestly say Villa Aurora was the best of the lot.

The sheer size of the place along with the attention to detail alone is enough to keep you busy. Up for breakfest, have a game of table tennis, then a game of pool and then go for a dip in the swimming pool which was always at the right temp.........hmmm i miss that games room!

There is also a great town within 10mins walk from the villa, great for going out for a meal (The Windmill) and then a sing song in the local bar. The villa is only a 20min drive from the ferry port to Gozo which is also worth a look.

If your looking for a place to rent in Malta you will not get better than this. Cust service from the owners was excellent. Luxury car to pick you up, food and wine waiting for you when you arrive. A fantastic place to go on holidays, i'd recommend this place to anybody who likes a bit of quality.
