Apartment 3 Orange
About the home
This is a studio apartment which, although its compact size, still entails all the amenities required for one's comfort. It is considered as budget accommodation mainly because of its compact size, although it must also be mentioned that besides the two single beds (which can be put together to form a large double bed) in this open plan apartment, it also has another area where a bunk bed is located.
Entrance to this studio is down the short stairway alongside the koy fish pond, and opposite the vine tree gazebo. This studio also connected to apartment 1 via two communal doors (to ensure the privacy of both apartments if these are rented out separately).

Further details outdoors:
Property 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.
Access to pool area is via wooden bridge over large cascading koy fish pond. The dedicated solar heating system for the pool allows use of the pool from April to October. 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 and a breeze that comes from the close coastal shores, transforming the tropical torch lit garden into a place of its own, where cascading waters from the fish ponds continue to add to the serenity that the whole place seems to create.
This studio apartment also enjoys its own private front patio with garden furniture. 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 dogs), other than the koy fish and turtles already mentioned, also have their own separate dens, and are well kept, pampered and cared for.
Prices include water, gas, electricity, linen and towels, wifi, TV satellite channels, pick-up from airport on arrival and complimentary food pack.
Should this studio apartment be rented out as an independent unit, then our recommendation is only for a couple or maximum a party of 3; however, if this apartment is rented out in conjunction with apartment 1, then the full 4 beds can be utilized as guests will still be able to use the dining area in the larger apartment 1.
Deposit of 30% of total amount is required to secure booking. Balance to be paid upon arrival in Malta in Euro.
A 30 euro charge for final cleaning is not included in the price.
Check-in time is 13:00 hrs, although if apartment has been vacant for at least the previous day, then this would also be available at an earlier time.
Although we will normally allow our guests to stay in the apartment right up to their departure time, there may be instances when we will have to ask guests to vacate apartment much earlier (at 10:00 hrs) in order that this can be cleaned in circumstances when we have same day arrivals. Notwithstanding this, guests can still utilize the pool and garden facilities, and will also be provided with a place where to change clothes and have the use of toilet and kitchen facilities.
The Island of Malta region
The warmth of the Mediterranean sun, the clarity of the Mediterranean sea and the welcoming smiles of the Maltese people have won the hearts of visitors for years, but this tiny island also offers a host of diverse attractions and activities for those seeking a short break from the winter blues.
From balmy beaches and trendy nightclubs, to magnificent ancient monuments and a stunning legacy of centuries' old art and culture, Malta has something for everyone to enjoy.
Life is good on the Mediterranean island of Malta: warm sunshine, starry nights and lots to do, see, taste, feel and remember. Whether you're just visiting for a few days or spending a long lazy month on the island, you'll find Malta is alive with people, parties and events whatever the season. From summer jazz festivals and lunchtime concerts to thrilling theatre, music and arts events that pack the island's cultural calendar all year round.
Malta's strategic position midway between Europe and Africa made it a key possession for the many different conquering nations that ruled it throughout its 7000 years of history: from Neolithic man to the Ancient Romans, the Byzantines, the Moors, the Normans, the Knights of St John, the French and the British, all of whom have left a wealth of architectural and cultural treasures.
From the Baroque city of Valletta, a churches, galleries, shops, open air markets and boasting the remarkable St John's Co-Cathedral, home to Caravaggio's masterpiece the Beheading of St John, to the old capital, Mdina, the so-called 'Silent City, that quietly evokes a bygone era with its elegant stone palaces and hushed cobbled streets, to the St Paul's Catacombs in Rabat, Ggantija Neolithic Temples in Gozo, the World War II shelters and the Forts of St Elmo and St Angelo. In summer, get ready to enjoy firework fuelled village feasts in honour of village saints.
For those seeking adventure and an adrenaline rush, an early morning dive in the crystal clear waters of the Med checking out old war ships might be the thing to set your pulse racing, or test your endurance rock climbing high above the deep blue sea on the majestic Dingli Cliffs or head to the airport and enjoy the view from above with a skydiving jump. Wind down afterwards with a leisurely round of golf and afternoon tea on the lawns. The stunning historical settings of Valletta, Mdina or St Julians make the perfect backdrop to relaxation, sightseeing, concerts or sports.
Evenings are fun filled and full of activity: start with a typical Mediterranean fish dinner under the stars and continue with a buzzing night in one of Malta's many sophisticated nightlife venues. There's lots of choice too... pick from one of the hundreds of restaurants and cafes serving a wide range of local and international cuisine, and enjoy the island's vibrant nightlife, with its myriad pubs, wine bars, jazz clubs, discos, nightclubs and casinos offering entertainment for all ages.
The Madliena area
Madliena's pristine location between two valleys of Swieqi and Gharghur provides a perfect opportunity for countryside walks. This hamlet is located on one of the highest points on the island (130m) thus helping to 'cool' down the hot summer nights with its gentle breeze off the nearby coastal areas. From this vantage point one can see right across the island, all the way from Marsaxlokk, to Mdina, Valletta, and on a clear day, also the northern towns 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, between 1870 and 1900 built a series of four forts with intervening walls, gun emplacements and redoubts along the 12km of the ridge (an outstanding example of Victorian military architecture). Because of its vantage point, Madliena was mostly used for military reasons with the most important site in this respect being the Madliena Tower (within short walking distance and available for public viewing and visits).
Within close vicinity, one can also find the Meditteraneo Water Park, Malta’s only marine park. This is a popular place for both Maltese and tourists alike with its many water rides, attraction pools, and marine park, where one can also swim with dolphins.
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). 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.
How to get there
Click map icons for more information
Following the introduction of low budget airlines to Malta from both England and Italy, other than the national airlines of each concerned country, flying to the island has never been easier and cheaper.
Getting to your villa apartment is not particularly difficult but one does tend to get lost on our roads, especially if this is your first time to the island. For this reason, we will always make it a point to meet you at Malta’s international airport located at Luqa.
The drive is approximately 20 minutes away, just past Paceville, the island’s entertainment hub, but far enough to be away from it all in this most sought after area.
We also engage our own car hire agent to ensure that reliable and cheaper rates are obtained should you prefer to explore the island behind a wheel.
