“An unbelievable experience”
Reviewed August 26, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A modern, specious and private villa, with everything a family could ask for. It's got to be rated as a 5* experience. Franco was fantastic and made us feel at home immediately. Any questions we had during the week were answered immediately by Franco, he was much more than just the owner of the villa.Villa Vida itself is just on the outskirts of Naxxar, with public transport easily accessible and cheap. It is away from the main tourist resorts, but an excellent base for venturing out to see the main tourist attractions on the island. Facilities in the villa are simply amazing and the decor light and modern. The supermarket was a ten minute walk away in Naxxar. It's a steep uphill climb but you can jump on the air conditioned bus service at the bottom of the road or shop online before you arrive and have it delivered! The bus service is good with buses approx every 20 minutes. We can't stop raving about the villa and the holiday. With 2 teenage sons the villa gave us flexibility, privacy and 5* luxury. We really wish that we didn't have to come home. A word of warning- it's HOT in August!!!!!! If you are looking for something different away from the commercialism and usual tourist frenzy, then this is the villa for you!!!

“Fantastic Villa”
Reviewed August 16, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We (family of 5) stayed at Villa Elma in late July/early August. It is lovely modern, comfortable villa with everything that you would want and an awful lot more. Very modern, very clean and spacious. 2 pools, fully equipped kitchen, BBQ, underground parking, Wifi, TV, multi-room entertainment system etc. A great property that we thoroughly enjoyed

Location wise it is an excellent base. Nowhere in Malta is too far away of course but in this case a good supermarket and restaurants are 2 mins drive / 10 mins walk up the road. If you don't want to drive to Valetta the bus stop is at end end of the road.

Franco and family were a pleasure to deal with from the moment we booked the property months before to the moment we drove away on the last morning. The fridge was stocked with basics; Franco was there to welcome us when we arrived and show us around. They are rightly proud of Villa Elma and the service they offer.

There's usually always something not quite up to expectations when you rent a villa or perhaps the photos make the place look better than it really is. In this case though that's not the case. Everything was great and we would recommend Villa Elma and Franco and family to anyone.

My spouse and our two children stayed at Villa Elma and from July 3-10th/15. The villa is very modern and architecturally stunning! The layout was well thought out. The house is very spacious and in a great location. Franco (the owner) was very accommodating and made himself available for any questions. I would definitely recommend this villa and I am planning to rent this again in the future!

We stayed at the villa for 6 nights. The place is amazing, the owner really friendly and helpful. Our older daughter said she wanted a house just like it. We would definitely recommend it for a family.

“Amazing holiday home! Likely to be one of the best in Malta!”

We stayed at this property over the Easter Break and could not have chosen a better place! When we booked we were expecting something nice, but we were in for a very pleasant surprise as the photos on here really don't do it justice! The property itself is less than a year old and has been designed with all the trappings of luxury holidaying in mind. Whether you are lounging by one of the two pools, enjoying the sun on the roof terrace or next to the bbq, this house will have something to please everyone. Couple that with very friendly and attentive owners who are a phone call away with any requests you have, and this is the ideal spot for a holiday in Malta!

“This villa is luxurious and the owner welcoming”

people found this review helpful

We came as two families of four, last week, and this villa was the ideal choice for us as it gave us all something. There are several terraces, a barbecue, wifi, big TV, music in every area, plenty of places to get some peace, a choice of two swimming pools, and a totally modern kitchen with some groceries and detergents supplied too. The indoor pool is heated and there are sun loungers. Hundreds of towels are provided and the bedding is fluffy and wonderful! The kitchen is sleek and modern. With air conditioning and security alarm, total control of music, gates, door, etc with inside pads and iPads, this really is an all new modern luxury accommodation!
The location is ideal for seeing all of Malta, whilst remaining peaceful and secluded. You have full privacy in the garden area. To get to Valletta is a 10 minute taxi ride. We could easily walk to the Rotunda church in Mosta. Buses pass close by too.
Franco, the owner, is totally professional, and friendly. He gives more than what anyone would expect, in hospitality, for example arranging our meal when we arrived quite late on our first evening and as another example, we had the weather forecast for our chosen week printed and laid out for us. These are just two examples of many services Franco will provide.
