This villa (more like castle) is located in a quiet area of Malta. There is a bus stop very close that can take you to all other locations on the rest of the island. Lino the owner of the villa couldn't help us enough, nothing was too much trouble from helping us to plan our trips- to arranging the bedrooms to our requirement of 10 people sharing.
We had a wonderful stay. A holiday we will never forget for all the right reasons.
The only downside for me was that the pool was very cold- but then we did go in October! The children however, went in any time of the day regardless and LOVED it!
Villa Buddha is a beautiful house with a lovely pool in a very convenient setting. The rooms are spacious and 8 of us lived comfortably for a fortnight. The villa is less than 100m from the nearest convenience store and a 2-minute walk from the bakery, butchers, pastizzeria and bank (HSBC) in Zurrieq.
Lino is a very friendly and helpful host. The villa is well equipped. Despite being only 5 mins from Luqa, we only heard two planes pass overhead in 2 weeks, and half of us didn't even notice them. 20 mins by car to beautiful Valletta, 5 mins to the Blue Grotto.
Air conditioning costs extra (€20 per day), but there is AC in only one bedroom so we didn't bother. Despite the heatwave, the villa remained fairly cool downstairs and there are fans in all the bedrooms. Wifi at no extra charge.
Would definitely book Villa Buddha again next time we're in a large group holidaying in Malta. Thanks to Lino for a most enjoyable stay.
We rented Villa Buddha for a family weekend and it was a gem of a place. The common areas are decorated with great detail and art pieces and the bedrooms which are all ensuite were very comfortable and spacious. They were decorated with old world pieces of furniture. Everywhere you turn in the villa you always spot soneting new. There is so much to look at and appreciate. The pool area was the best place in the villa, for the reason of being outdoors and spacious enough for a large group. There are grocery shops close by and it is very central for going out for a leasurly walk both around the village and also in the surrounding counrty side. We ordered pizza takeaway one evening and the delivery was spot on. On the other nights we bar b qued our dinners in the BBQ area by the pool.
I have read in a previous review that the front door does not shut. This is totally untrue. There are two doors to the house and they both close shut and lockable. The other comment was that the toilet downstails does not flush. This toilet flushed very well.
My Nicholas Barbara, well done with your beautiful charming house and god bless you and good luck with plenty more reservations. We will be back and we will also highly recommend it to all our friends.
