About the property

Cottage in Wardija, near St Paul's Bay - Secluded with Various Beaches Within 10 Mins drive.

The main house, Dar ta L-Argentier, was built well over 100 years ago when it was probably used as a shooting lodge. In the grounds of this lovely home where the owners live is 'The Cottage' which is available for self-catering holidays. In the peaceful surroundings of this rural area, this accommodation has all the amenities of home, and is adjacent to a large pool area, freshwater swimming pool and sunbathing area. St Paul's Bay is 5km away and the beaches of Golden Bay, Ghajn Tuffieha and Gnejna are only a 10 minute drive. A car is essential as the bus service has been discontinued. A good supermarket and regular bus service are located at the bottom of the Wardija hill about 4km.

About Jennifer

I am British and lived in this wonderful location for over 30 years. I love to travel but always look forward to returning to Wardija which is still an unspoilt area in the north of Malta. My husband and I live in the main house.

Why Jennifer chose Il-Wardija

Over the years we have transformed the 3 acres of land around the main house and the Cottage which are surrounded by lawns, numerous olive trees, palm trees and different shrubs and flowers. The kidney-shaped fresh water swimming pool with a large deck area is completely secluded with country views with St Paul's Island beyond.

What makes this cottage unique

Peace and quiet.

Cosy country style cottage

  • 5 of 5

As we arrived in Wardija (thanks to directions sent from the owners) we found a very nice secluded cottage, surrounded by a beautiful, well maintained garden on the property. It is a the perfect place to escape from the hectic life. The cottage was very clean, spacious, nicely furnished, a well equipped kitchen, outside space and barbeque area to relax and a very inviting private swimming-pool. We felt very much at home. We found the fridge filled for the first few days which helped as we arrived late evening. Both the owners Jennifer and Joe made us feel very welcome and were really helpful in any possible way. There are some lovely walks with stunning views over the island and sea. Shops and restaurants are only a few minutes driving distance. A car is useful as there is no public transport nearby. If one is looking for a peaceful hideaway with nice weather, beautiful landscape and friendly hosts, this is the place to come to.

Owner's Response: Dear Beate & Graham Thank you for your kind words in your review and also in our Visitors' Book. It was a real pleasure having you both as guests in our Cottage, which you left so clean and tidy. Your photos are excellent - when Graham gets fed up with cooking he can always turn to photography! I feel we have become good friends and hope we meet again either in Germany or Malta. Thank you again. Very Best Wishes to you both Jennifer & Joe

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

What a find! We had the most wonderfully relaxing two week holiday in this fabulous self catering accommodation. It is secluded, quiet and conveniently situated for exploring the island by car. The grounds really are quite special and the cottage is clean, well equipped and comfortable. Jennifer and Joe were perfect hosts, attentive and helpful without being intrusive. They even gave us perfect directions from the airport and put all sorts of goodies in the fridge. We loved it and would highly recommend it to future guests.
