'Mellieha, not just a summer resort but a destination for all seasons!' – European Destination of Excellence

A large village in the north-western part of Malta, Mellieha is a popular destination with locals and foreigners alike.

Having been isolated for over two centuries, due to fear from attacks of corsairs and Saracens, Mellieha has developed into a flourishing town, especially since it having been re-inhabited in the 18th century.  Today, however, it still retains an appealing, unique historic centre with its narrow streets and stepped alleys. No other village in Malta includes Mellieha’s large number of breathtaking villas. An ample number of foreigner choose to settle in Mellieha, an example of whom would be the President of The Social Capital Foundation.
