Stunning Villa
The villa is beautiful, the photos do not do it justice. We particularly enjoyed how spacious it is (with every room having an ensuite and balcony) and the greenery. It really feels like you've walked into an oasis. The pool area is perfect with a good number of loungers, a toilet and a shower. There's a convenience store a 4 minute walk away and larger supermarkets (LASCO and LIDL) about a 15 minute walk away. We downloaded e-cabs (like Uber) and found it was a great way to get around. Connie kindly allowed us to check-out of the villa late which allowed us to make the most of our last day. We exceeded the electricity allowance despite using only what was necessary for us so bear in mind this is a possibility when budgeting.

Old Malta at its best!
Stunning romanesque style property in generous and secluded grounds with every possible amenity. Twelve of us had a wonderful week exploring historic Malta and enjoying the delights of the Casa San Rocco. Only yards from a corner shop and 100yds from a well stocked supermarket (Maypole). 100yds from a main bus route, but we made great use of local taxis (Ecabs - get their App) which were inexpensive and very reliable. The local chef, Matt, was both charming and talented, so much so that he cooked for us 3 times! Everything highly recommended.

A pleasant stay in a stunning villa
The nine of us really enjoyed ourselves here - it was a stunning villa. We came during the week of Santa Marija so there were amazing fireworks every evening of which we had a great view from the top of the tower. But lots of confusion over availability of a chef - the advertised chef turned out to be working in Corfu all summer, and the next choice never responded. It would save a lot of irritation if the property manager made arrangements directly with the chef!!

A wonderful oasis
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.
