Why the Owner Chose Santa Maria Estate, Mellieha, Malta:
Santa Maria Estate was a specially designated area out for development for the economical and social elite under the British rule of the 1960's as this unique spot to be like a special place to attract ex servise personnel and invite investors to live in this area offered from the Maltese Church and Authorities to attract investment and employment to the local community. However this area was available for the Maltese public not until the early 1970's and still is regarded as a NO rif raf place of Malta. Our villa is uniquly positioned in a quite cul de sac overlooking the sea and valley views up to the islands of Gozo with spectacular sun set sky views.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Villa Desiderata enjoys a unique layout of a symetrical 'W' shape. Guests are always surprised with the tranquility of the area. As we live on the top floor this offers an extra comfort of peace of mind as we are always available for anything one might require during one's stay at any time as we are always a phone or a knock away ( or as close!). The swimming pool and terrace are large and faces the sun from morning till sunset and this is complimented with sun loungers and other garden furniture as tables, chairs and a large parasol for some shade! A gas- charcoal Bar- B- Q is also on site for an outdoor cook and eat experience! The surrunding garden is planted with Maltese endemic trees to add all the colour and privacy of our property. The units all face the swimming pool deck and are very accessabile as there is no steps around and makes this very comfortable for the infirm and with some form of disability. For extra comfort specially during our hot season all bedrooms are air conditioned and Wifi is standard.
