“Truly beautiful place to stay”
Reviewed 21 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

A group of nine of us stayed here for 4 nights. The communication before and during stay was great. We had no problem getting any information we needed. The property is absolutely stunning. Full of character and an abundance of space. Also had all the ammenities needed for a large group. I am definitely going to book a return trip and this place I couldn't recommend more

“Stunning villa for a fantastic group holiday.”
Reviewed 20 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Our group of ten girls stayed in the beautiful casa sant fourtina for a long weekend in April for a hen party.
I cannot express how stunning the property is with everything you could possibly need and more. Beautifully decorated with enough bedrooms and bathroom to cater for our group and plenty of room to spare.
The kitchen was perfect for having a big communal meal and there is a huge banquet table in the dinning room.
The court yard in the centre of the villa was were we spent most of our time in the day with 2 stunning roof terraces above and the pool area at the back which had plenty of seating and tables.
The maid service was amazing, we were welcomed and shown round the property, given all the essential information and even shown where the shops and places to eat out we're in the small town. Tess was extremely helpful with queries before arriving, Responding very quickly by email.
The bus service to Valletta was very easy and close to walk to. We enjoyed a night out in st Julian's with a 24 hr taxi service to get us home.
Excellent place to stay, would be wonderful for families, friends and groups of all ages to enjoy.

“The Most Amazing Villa”
Reviewed 11 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Our group of 9 enjoyed a fantastic week staying in Casa Sant Fournier.
The villa is huge and there was plenty of room for our big group and we didn't even feel like we used all of it.
The owner was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed to ensure a comfortable stay.
It is located in the centre of the island making it convenient to get to different beaches and attractions as well as the city of Valleta and nightlife of St Julians.
We didn't quite work out just how many bathrooms there were but it made a great location for playing 'sardines' and hide and seek. They also had an epic collection of board-games for evenings in.

“perfect family holiday”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We just returned from a family holiday at this villa and we was a party of 12. We had the most perfect holiday. We all had space to disappear and have our own space. It was very relaxing and happy also. we stayed during feast time which had fabuless fireworks but it meant very little was open in Zebbug. advice stock up or go out of town. Be very a wear of the large insects and mosquitos.

“A stunning, unique house in a quiet, convenient setting”
Reviewed 24 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015
1
person found this review helpful

This house is absolutely beautiful and feels like a family home rather than a holiday rental. There are lovely things there; pictures, nick-knacks, plants, furniture; and yet you don't feel it's so precious you cannot relax properly. If you are expecting perfection to English standards, forget it; and accept the charm of a real place. The house is obviously a few hundred years old, and I guess must need constant maintenance. There are minor issues with damp in a few places, which do not take away from its intrinsic elegance and beauty. The setting is lovely; it's built round a central courtyard where we ate most of our meals, with various roof terraces with comfortable furniture (some of this is getting a bit tired, but we didn't mind one bit), trailing plants, and lovely views.

Zebbug is central and close to a lot of things you might want to visit. It is a charming small town, although lacking in facilities. We found nowhere we wanted to eat out in the village, and the few shops are fairly basic. However, there are great markets every day except Sunday and Monday. Tip: if you arrive on Sunday, ask the lovely owner to organise some food to be in the house for you. There is a kind and helpful maid who comes in from time to time unobtrusively to water and look after the two tortoises, and she did some basic shopping for us before we arrived. We had no car, but got around on foot (Mdina, must see, is 1 hr on foot over quiet roads) and by bus (Valetta 30 mins, frequent buses from main street). You are only 10 mins from the airport, and you do get occasional plane noise, but it was never a real problem during our stay.

There is aircon in most of the bedrooms, although it was pretty much ineffective in one, and the small single bedroom has only a fan. In fact, I would not use this bedroom except for, say, a young adult, as it is far from any bathrooms and must be terribly hot. Two of the double rooms are interconnecting. The rooms are generally comfortable and spacious, and all except one has an en-suite. There are two separate living areas, and various places to dine. The kitchen is a real chef's paradise, very well equipped and large.

The swimming pool is not huge, but certainly big enough to swim rather than just dip, and beautifully set in its own courtyard surrounded by plants. Do not bother with the heating if you are coming in summer; you won't need it (owner will advise you). They ask you not to use it after 10pm as the neighbours are close, and we did feel that our noisy children might be annoying at siesta time too (although no one complained).

Three things to prepare for. 1. Mosquitoes. Some of us were bitten quiet badly, despite using spray in the rooms. It is hard to find decent anti-mossie stuff in the town so I suggest you get some before you travel. 2. Water. The water in most of the taps is not suitable for drinking or even brushing teeth. So ask the nice maid to get some for you in advance. 3. Wifi. There is wifi, but it does not work in all the rooms, and went down after a few days (although it was fixed). If you absolutely need internet access all the time this may not be the place for you, although there are plenty of places in the town with free wifi.

All-in-all, this is one of the most lovely places I have ever stayed in as a holiday rental. Do try it!

All the bedrooms have air con. All functioning perfectly on inspection.
Wifi now works throughout the house but some spots are blind as the walls are 4 foot thick in places.

“Could be beautiful again with some work”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

people found this review helpful

I have just return for a week in Casa Sant Fournier in Malta. I went with other eight friends.
The house is really beautiful. Rooms are aple and well appointed. You can see it was a very good house and could be again with some work. There is a lot of damp and many walls are flaking badly. It is a pity
The web shows nice pictures but they have been taken some time ago because now the house is note well manteined. The floors in the courtyad and the terraces have a lot of moss and the greenery needs somebody to take care of it.
As I said the house is beautiful; has really nice rooms and it is decorated with good taste.
Mary is the person who has taken care of us. She is really nice and very helpfully. I have to say that she was the best value of the house.
I would recommend to the owner to repair the walls before any other clientes go there

We always appreciate feedback but in this case there were exceptional circumstances. The plaster on one wall was flaking as a result of a particularly wet winter as these clients experienced in full as it rained every day they were there. Malta is a maritime climate where, within reason, these challnges are annual. We took this review to heart and in fact repainted the entire ground floor and replasterd the whole stiarcase. The house is now immaculate and was that way one month after this review. All other guests have been more than happy with Casa Sant Fournier as will be very evident from every other review. We look forward to inviting people to this lovely historic house in Malta.
