Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Villa Kentia is magestically placed high on the cliffside of the valley. It enjoys wonderful panoramas of the bay of Mellieha with the blue Mediterranean lining the horizon in the background and, just beneath in the foreground, the lush green valley of Ghajn Zejtuna with its sparse lanscaped bungalows making up the priority residential area of Santa Marija Estate.
Upon arrival you will be taken aback by the wonderful 360 degrees views around you, enjoyed from the spacious terraces, pool area and open plan of the villa as well.

Whether it is a family holiday with kids, a secluded romantic holiday away from it all, or a quiet relaxed holiday with friends that is desired, then Villa Kentia provides it all. And in panoramic surrounds.
|Further details outdoors|
The front terrace and the pool terrace enjoy panoramic views over the valley and beach beneath and the deep blue sea beyond, with the islands of Comino and Gozo to the left. On a clear day Sicily comes into sight as well. The swimming pool is ideally sized (4x8m) and is wholly covered in glass mosaic that gives a glittering effect and wonderful colour. Light sunloungers together with other garden furniture like the fixed glass-table, a mobile hexagonal table with six chairs, and a stainless steel B-B-Q on wheels provide all that is necessary to enjoy outdoor life and relaxation.
The side and back terraces are flanked with gardens that slope up to the overhanging cliffs some thirty meters beyond.
The villa is full of light and to protect from excessive sun it is surrounded with protruding rooftiles on wooden framework, that provide shade all around at the time when the sun is overhead.
The detached villa sits on a private estate that it shares with another detached villa that is used by the owner himself. Entry to the estate is through a large gate that is remotely opened either through a fixed press-switch inside the house or through the remote control accessory that accompanies the door key.
Ample parking space is available on the spacious ramp leading up to the villas.

The Island of Malta region
Malta is much more than sun and sea although most visitors to the island come for its mild climate and its friendly people who speak English fluently.
Malta has much more to offer by way of its long and interesting history and pre-history. Situated in the middle of the sea that itself was right in the centre of the Old World (Medi-terra ), Malta attracted the attention of all peoples that held predominance from time to time.
It boasts of the oldest free-standing architecture in the World in the form of megalithic temples that were built millennia before the Pyramids of Egypt. Then came the bronze age peoples, followed by the Phoenicians, the Carthagenians, the Romans, the Byzantines and the Arabs, who were finally chased away by the Normans.
All of these peoples have left cultural traces that are discreetly hidden away in the most unlikely of places for you to discover.
The Aragonese then took over during the feudal era of the middle ages until the arrival of the Knights of the Order of St. John. Their cultural heritage, with the city of Valletta being the apex, is widespread and easier to admire in the baroque style of architecture and works of art. Their influence was overwhelming, Although the Maltese still held to their simpler style of habitation and way of life a large number of churches and other edifices were later built in the same exuberant baroque style.
Napoleon ended the splendid era of the Knights of Malta, only briefly as Horatio Nelson relieved the Maltese from French domination. The British were the last to leave their influence on the island which consisted mainly of military establishments built in the neo-classical style.
Malta is amazing mixture of all these influences overlapping the simpler traditional constructions, with ultramodern ones to boot.
Being a very small island nation with such cultural heritage, small is beautiful because during a short stay one can visit and dwell upon many of these national assets, as well as take in the sister island of Gozo, then relax to take in the sun and sea as well. One is well advised to rent a car to make the visits of interests in the morning and then relax by the pool in the afternoon, perhaps taking a siesta. The day could be brought to an happy ending by a delightful evening meal at one of the many and varied restaurants in Mellieha. Else try one's hand at the BBQ.
Santa Marija Estate is an exclusive residential area of villas and bungalows deliciously interwoven in the valley system of Ghajn Zejtuna, that opens on the southern flank of Mellieha Bay. Since the area is in high demand the valley floor is scrupously protected from further development by the residents' association who devoutedly see to the conservation of its ecosystem. It has recently been officially scheduled as a protected natural area, surrounded as it is by overlying luxury villas with large landscaped gardens and open spaces.
Entry to the Estate is from the main road leading to the quaint village of Mellieha, which itself occupies a high ridge with its imposing church built early last century over a cave sanctuary that dates back many centuries. Tradition has it that the old image of the Madonna with Child was painted on the bare rock by St Luke himself when he was shipwrecked with St Paul in 60AD. The village commemorates the Holy Virgin by throwing a luscious celebration lasting a week on and around the 8th of September, with religious rituals, processions, band marches, exhibitions, firework displays and other activities.
Today Mellieha has grown on the periphery but still conserves its rustic charm at the core, offering excellent views from its lofty position. In the old village boutique hotels and quaint restaurants offer excellent cuisine to locals and visitors alike, but further down toward the bay, which is the largest sandy beach in Malta, open-air restaurants specialise in fish dishes and pizzerias offer other summer delicacies.
The visiting food connoisseur is spoilt for choice in Mellieha.
