“Wonderful Stay in an Amazing Property”
Reviewed 27 May 2019 for a stay in May 2019

My friends and I stayed here for 8 fantastic nights. The property is set within the picturesque town on Mdina which has many fantastic places to eat and drink on your doorstep as well as many amazing places to visit. We could not fault the property at all, in fact it was a privilege to stay in such an historic and grand building. Our host Andrea could not have been more helpful organising transfers, advice, recommendations etc - very friendly indeed. We also made use of the taxi service recommended by Andrea, even booking a full day of excursions and taken to different attractions, islands - which we could not have done on our own. I would not hesitate to stay again and are already discussing a return visit. This was truly an amazing property to stay whilst enjoying our first visit to Malta - 5*

“Superb property and Location ”
Reviewed 21 May 2019 for a stay in May 2019

Me and my 7 friends stayed here for 7 full nights. The place is just like the pictures lovely and full of character. Nice sun trap in garden if want to chill and small fountain was like a pool to sit in if wanted. The location was right in centre, so perfect and close to transport.
The owner was in communication if you needed anything and responded straight away. I recommend you let her do transfers so easy and reliable and helped with keys to house.
Also I have to say a massive 5 star to the taxi service they recommend you felt like you had your own chauffeur, we used them most of week and they always were free and on time and good price and very friendly great people.
The town was lovely the food was great and prices were very reasonable indeed. We recommend a nice small friendly place called Adelina. (Service food great the best all week). Fontanella (view and food) and Coogis were great and within a stones throw.
Finally was all quite hassle free owner was very friendly and lovely person well recommend from us all. X thanks for an a amazing holiday. X

“Beautiful palazzo and extremely welcoming hosts”
Reviewed 9 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Mdina itself is a truly picturesque town. It is a very unique place. Andrea and Joanna's palazzo is gorgeous. We worried that without a car, it might be inaccessible but Malta is small and public transport gets you everywhere. We were so thrilled that we had chosen Mdina as our base. It is so silent and majestic! Great restaurants. The house itself is on two main levels with several roof terrace areas. The kitchen is well equipped. Joanna was helpful in every way and welcoming. Don’t be fooled into thinking there isn’t plenty to do in Mdina and Malta - we could have stayed another week and still not had time to do & see all that Malta has to offer. Staying in Mdina showed us a world unexpected - it’s like a film set. Highly recommended.

“Amazing stay!”

My family and I stayed here for 8 nights and have absolutely no complaints. In fact, we can only speak positively about this amazing villa. It is set in the most beautiful town of Mdina just steps away from many restaurants and multiple places of attraction. The house was spotless and had all the necessary amenities we needed. To top it all off, the owners were extremely helpful - organising an airport transfer for us, and facilitating a very late arrival. They helped us with everything we needed! I highly recommend this home to anyone wishing to visit Malta, and to experience living in a Medieval town. You will not regret it.

“Style, history and modernity!”
Reviewed 8 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

If you’re looking for unique accommodation in Malta that offers style, history and modernity in a superb setting, then look no further. We recently had the privilege of staying in this magnificent palazzo. Located in Bastion Square, Mdina with its superb views across a large swathe of Malta you also have access to a number of very good restaurants, all within a short walking distance. Public transport to all parts of Malta and taxis are also well catered for, again, all within a short walk from the palazzo.
The owners of the palazzo (Joe and Joanna) met us on arrival and we’ll never forget their graciousness and kindness, nothing was a trouble to them.
The palazzo itself is truly grand, stylishly furnished but with all modern conveniences. We particularly liked the classical furnishings, the high ceilings, the enormous rooms and beautifully appointed bathrooms. In quieter moments it was a real pleasure to make use of the rear garden to relax and watch the world go by.
We were very reluctant to leave this very special place but we’ve already began the conversation concerning a return trip in the not too distant future.
