The Island of Malta region
Megaliths, medieval dungeons and Calypso's Cave – The Maltese Islands are positively mythic. The narrow meandering streets of their towns and villages lead to the main square, which is invariably dominated by the huge baroque church. As the countryside is dotted with medieval towers, wayside chapels and the oldest known human structures in the world, the Islands have rightly been described as an open-air museum.
The Maltese archipelago lies virtually at the centre of the Mediterranean, 93 km south of Sicily and 288 km north of Africa. The archipelago consists of three islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino with a total population of over 400,000 inhabitants occupying an area of 316 square kilometers.
Malta is the largest island and the cultural, commercial and administrative centre. Gozo is the second largest island and is more rural, characterised by fishing, tourism, crafts and agriculture. Comino, the smallest of the trio, has one hotel and is largely uninhabited.
With superbly sunny weather, attractive beaches, a thriving nightlife and 7,000 years of intriguing history, there is a great deal to see and do.
Mellieha was once an isolated 15th century hamlet perched on the ridge overlooking Ghadira Bay.
It was abandoned for a couple of centuries because of its vulnerability to pirate and Saracen attack. Re-inhabited in the early 18th century, it has since developed into a flourishing town though it retains a quaint historic centre with narrow streets and stepped alleys. From the terrace of the Parish Church, there is a panoramic view over Mellieha Bay and the surrounding countryside.
Beneath the church is the Chapel of the Blessed Virgin, a national shrine. A fresco of the Madonna and Child is said to have been painted by St. Luke. This legend has made the troglodyte chapel into a popular place of pilgrimage. The walls are lined with ex-voto offerings and paintings - a testimony to the devotion of the people.
Mellieha today is a modern town noted for its large private villas and houses which have been built on land overlooking the bay. While the town has developed into a resort, it has managed to retain some of its rural character.

"Very nice place. We may be back next year."
This is a very pleasant place in a quiet residential area. The owners live on the first floor and they have two nice apartments on the ground floor (one for 4, one for 5 people). We used the (non-heat… More

This was one of the most enjoyable vacations that I can remember. We were meeting a large group for a family reunion. I have to say that we all stayed in the same area and our place was the best out of all the other villas. Not the mention the owners were extraordinary they treated us like family and we became fast friends. I would recommend this place to anyone regardless if you are single or family. The accomodations were clean and very comfortable. The pool was spectacular and view was breathtaking. I cannot wait to visit again.
Thank You for the wonderful review Carol. It was our pleasure having you over and we are looking forward to have you all back.
