Our family spent a delightful week at Casa San Rocco the first week of July to celebrate a significant anniversary. We were 8 adults and 6 children (from 20 months to 16 years). This property easily accommodated our group with lots of areas to gather, as well as plenty of secluded nooks for a quiet read.
The house is very large and beautifully furnished with several outside terraces and a lovely pool. The grounds are so comfortable that it was tempting to just stay at the villa to enjoy the day.
But our group found Malta so interesting that we were all off in different directions every day to explore something new, coming back late in the afternoon to enjoy the pool and dinner prepared by Chef Matthew Attard. We had originally booked Matthew for 3 nights but after tasting his food on our first night, booked him for any remaining nights he had free. Matthew is a gifted chef and added a lot to our enjoyment of Casa San Rocco.
The house is located in Hal Ghaxaq, a village which is centrally located in the southern part of the island. Our group had rented 1 large van and we also used Nick’s Chauffeur Services. Nick’s drivers are excellent and also a font of knowledge about Malta – sites to visit, history, politics, etc. We highly recommend them.
One of the highlights of our week was an all day excursion on the catamaran Maxim with skipper Ada Cuciuc. This was an adventure that will long be remembered. Thanks Ada!
And, I must also say thanks to Connie, the housekeeper, who helped to make our stay so comfortable.
We had a great week at this beautiful property.
