Guestbook comments from the manager

The gates open ... and welcome to paradise, Malta style! Our stay at The Chateau was as good as we expected and then some with comfortable beds, plenty of space for unpacked clothing, well functioning bathrooms with unlimited hot water and a well-equipped kitchen. We felt at home!

What a treat to have fresh eggs, generously laid daily by the resident chickens, and to be able to go into the garden to harvest fresh vegetables for salads and dinners. We enjoyed breakfast outside at the large table and spent sunny late afternoons relaxing around the soothing pool after touring the countryside.

The walks to nearby Marsaxlokk, Marsaskala and Zejtun were a pleasant exercise and the Arriva bus, stopping not five minutes from the villa, got us to Valletta with ease.

It was a pleasure listening to a symphony of birds all day long and hens clucking, -- instead of car traffic!

Chris and Josette made sure we had all we needed and were a wealth of information when it came to nearby restaurants and events.

Our holiday was terrific!

We stayed in The Chateau at the end of March. We were in Malta for our wedding with a group of family and close friends. We had wanted to rent villas which were near to each other so we booked The Chateau, Villa Sky, Villa Blueberry and Villa Valletta. Whilst we stayed in The Chateau, we visited each of the villas and they are all very unique and very beautiful.

The Chateau was absolutely amazing. It really is such a romantic setting. You wake to the sound of farm animals and collect eggs from the chickens for breakfast. The villa is well equipped with everything that you may need. The rooms are a lovely size, beautifully decorated and there is more than enough space for large groups. The garden at The Chateau is impressive-plenty of room for sunbathing or having a BBQ. The pool is also very nice! We were super lucky with the weather in March and really made the most of the outdoor space.

The location is lovely for those who are looking for a relaxing break. There are supermarkets including a Lidl nearby and many excellent restaurants for lunch and dinner in the locality. The Stuffed Olive in Marsascala is very good and Terrone in Marsaxlokk is simply superb. The markets in Marsaxlokk are great and well worth a visit. Make sure to check out the beautiful boats!

Many people in our group hired cars and explored the local area and beyond-Valletta, Blue Grotto etc. These villas are excellent to use as a base while exploring the island.

Josette was excellent to deal with and absolutely nothing was too much trouble for her. We would recommend these villas to anyone, they are exactly as advertised. We will absolutely return, as will many of those who travelled to Malta with us.

We stayed at The Chateau in October. We were very lucky with the weather so we really enjoyed the pool. The kids loved getting the eggs from the chickens at the bottom of the garden every morning! Truly a gem of a place. Will surely return!!

Lovely Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely one-week holiday at this villa. We were met by Josette, the owner, who handed us the keys and showed us around the villa. This villa is lovely and retains all its original features. We all enjoyed relaxing by the pool in the hot weather, especially the kids! We also hired a car and drove around the island. All in all a lovely holiday...would surely recommend it for anyone wishing to unwind and relax.

Perfect with children

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful house with garden and pool. We enjoyed our stay very much. Our daughter (2 years old) loved to go picking eggs every morning from the chicken in the yard! Every room has it's own shower/toilet which is convenient with more than 1 family. Josette and Chris were overall very friendly and helpfull (especially with directions on arrival :) haha thanks!) Will recommend!!!

This is a villa in great condition

  • 5 of 5

a nice villa which is preferable for families with children but also for bigger groups which want to spend nice holidays in a nice city and atmosphere. Fresh eggs all day from own chickens were nice. Despite this pool was fantastic. Villa is located centrally. so their is no problem to reach bigger cities within 15 to 20 minutes by car. It was our first holiday in Malta with a bigger group which we enjoyed very much. would like to repeat it again. House owners were very helpful regarding all questions we had and all time reachable. Thanks for this.

No wonder it’s called The Chateau

  • 5 of 5

A villa that makes you want to return again and again. We went as a group of young adults and we can honestly say that this was the perfect accommodation to chill and have fun with friends. The pool is quite large and perfect for 10 persons. We made use of the bbq area every day and the equipped kitchen made it easier to prepare meals. Moreover the terrace was the perfect backdrop to settle down with a nice glass of wine in the evening. We were greatly satisfied by the cleanliness of the place and the friendly owner made sure that we had everything we needed. In fact when we ran out of towels she brought more immediately. We loved everything about this villa – the sophisticated finish and traditional feel, location and good value for money.

Marsascala offers you a relaxed atmosphere while still boasting a myriad of activities. The immediate area includes a number of well known restaurants and entertainment venues. Be it a quick snack or a full blown fish banquet, it is only a short drive away. You can walk along the picturesque promenade while on your way to dinner and get to know the locals who will undoubtedly be coming from or going to the same restaurants. An evening walk or an early morning job along the popular Marsascala promenade is an experience in itself.

Marsascala is also very close to the old town of Zejtun which is a typical Maltese Village surrounding a church. At Zejtun you can truly experience the Maltese way of living. The well know fishing village of Marsaxlokk is also close by. Like Marsacala, this village is much sought after for its fish restaurants. Marsaxlokk is very popular with tourists and locals alike for its fresh fish market which is set up every morning. You should reserve a morning for a stroll through this busy market and enjoy seeing fresh Mediterranean fish being sold and then order a fish lunch in one of the many restaurants that encircle the picturesque bay. The bay is usually full of traditional Maltese fishing boats unless you visit during a time when the fishermen are out fishing of course!
