THE GARDENS AT VILLA BOLOGNA

San Anton Street Ħ'Attard, ATD 1282, Malta

The Gardens at Villa Bologna

Villa Bologna is a grand but charming baroque Villa set in 8 acres of historic landscaped gardens. It is located next to the Presidential Palace of San Anton, in the quiet village of Attard. Within the Villa's high walls you will discover a world far removed from the bustle of Malta's tourist traffic, an oasis in the heart of Malta.

You can wander through the vine covered pergolas lined with stone irrigation channels which once fed the citrus orchards for which Attard is so well know. In spring you will be overcome by the scent of orange blossom wafting through the orchards. In winter the trees are a dazzling and exotic sight, weighted down by brightly coloured oranges and grapefruit.

Deeper into the garden you can explore the Sunken Pond, designed by Lady Strickland in the 1930's. Relax on the recently restored stone benches and admire the roses coming into bloom or the majestic Jacaranda trees shedding their flowers to create a carpet of lilac trumpets.

Walk from the Sunken Pond past the enormous stone urns to the magical Dolphin Fountain, a unique example of 1920s architecture and engineering in Malta. In the front garden you can admire the grand baroque fountains, masterpieces of baroque craftsmanship built in the 1700s and recently restored to their former glory. As you leave the gardens you can walk through the old stables of the Villa, which now house a small pottery workshop.
