The Maltese Archipelago consists of three islands – Malta, Gozo and Comino. Malta is the largest island and has an area of 316 sq km. It measures 27km long and 14km wide.

DESIGN TEAM MARIO CASSAR - INTERIOR DESIGNER “I have a great project in mind and I want you to realise it for me” said Michael Attard, the owner and developer of Ville Michel. This is how I was asked to be the Interior Designer for this special development. And indeed it didn’t take much to understand Michael’s objectives; he wanted the best. Enlightened by this goal my project team identified key aspects that are valued by the most discerning clients wanting to buy a luxury property. The layout was architecturally designed to ensure open floor plans with the notion to let in abundant natural sunlight. Highlighting the importance of privacy the common areas have been spaciously designed to ensure enough retreat between each apartment. Ville Michel has been created with an obsessive eye for detail and an understanding of genuine luxury. Reminiscent of a favourite spa, the elegant bathroom and en-suite, provide a beautiful and soothing place to soak and relax. Smart technology also fell within my brief and one can easily state that Ville Michel comes with an instruction manual, but it is also true that such systems will not require any changes in lifestyle except being ready to embrace laid-back living. But what also makes Ville Michel special is the wall of floor-to-ceiling glass and mosaic structure in the spacious common areas which not only highlights a contemporary design concept but also aims to give a sense of freshness and well being to the residence. Indeed, this particular feature together with the use of wooden parquet gives a feeling of being aboard a luxurious cruise liner. In a nutshell Ville Michel has been a positive experience for us all who have been involved in the project because we had the opportunity to express our creativity and put to practice our talents making Ville Michel the masterpiece that it is.
