      Village de Popeye

      March 18 in Malta ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

      J’en connais un qui a mangé des épinards ! Nous voilà en visite au village de Popeye, qui a été construit pour un film. Chiara a été désignée pour participer à un jeu. Une version vivante du jeu de l´oie, elle avait le cheval bleu. Malheureusement elle a perdu 😢
      Pour bien finir la journée, un câlin était nécessaire. Sans oublier les deux cocktails de l’happy hour.

      Mit einem eCab (meltesischer Uber) ging es über die halbe Insel ins Popeye Village. Hier wurde der Film Popeye mit Robin Williams im Jahr 1980 gedreht. Heute ist es ein Freizeitpark mit Liveshows und Unterhaltungsmöglich. Sogar Popcorn 🍿 war im Eintrittticket 🎟 inkludiert. Uns hat das Dörfchen gefallen und wir haben endlich das Meer mit seiner türkisblauen Farbe 💙💦 gesehen.Read more

      ☑️ Did you know that the film set of Popeye is in Malta?!?
      Popeye Village, also known as Sweethaven Village, was built as a film set for the 1980 musical production "Popeye" produced by Paramount Pictures and Walt Disney Productions.
      It is located in Anchor Bay, just 3 kilometers from Mellieha village and was built in 1979.
      The village consists of nineteen wooden buildings.
      Filming for the musical production began on January 23, 1980.
      Today the film set has been transformed into a tourist attraction and is open to the public as an open-air museum and family entertainment complex year-round.

      ❌ Sea not very clean, prices for eating a little high

      Popeye Village

      September 27, 2023 in Malta ⋅ 🌬 24 °C

      Our trip to Blue Lagoon was cancelled due to “weather conditions” 🤨 So we went to Popeye Village instead and we didn’t regret it! Not crowded beach, pretty houses and some entertainment events during the whole day. If you are not limited in time and can stay the whole day - the place totally worth the money!

      P.S. People are swimming in “bad weather conditions “

      Popeye Village

      May 5, 2023 in Malta ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

      Popeye Village est un ensemble de maisonnettes en bois situé à Anchor Bay, dans le nord-ouest de l'île de Malte, à quelques kilomètres de Mellieħa. Il est créé pour servir de décor et de lieu de tournage de la comédie musicale Popeye, sortie en 1980, avec Robin Williams dans le rôle de Popeye.
      Normalement on peut le visiter (en payant), mais quand nous y sommes passés il était fermé de toutes façons.
      Nous nous sommes contentés du beau point de vue juste en face, et bien sûr du drone....

      March 15, 2023 in Malta ⋅ 🌬 16 °C

      Dagen igennem var vi lovet blæsevejr 💨
      Planen var at gå ud til Skipper Skræk byen som er en charmerende filmkulisse fra Skipper Skræk-filmen
      Den farverige og skæve. Popeye Village blev bygget i 1979 som kulisse til Disney-filmen ”Sweethaven” med Robin Williams i hovedrollen som Skipper Skræk.
      Det var før man kunne lave det med computeranimation.
      Den er så pt. midlertidig lukket men vi fik da et indtryk udefra.
      Vandreturen videre rundt droppede vi p. g. a den kraftige blæst og sandflugt 🫣

      Elso uticelunk a sziget atellenes oldalan levo Popey falu volt, ahol a Popey filmet forgattak es megtartottak (hozzateszem nagyon ugyesen) a helyszint turistalatvanyossagnak. Azt nem mondom hogy pikk-pakk odaertunk, mert kb 40es atlaggal tudtunk haladni, de azert nagy tavolsagok nincsenek a szigeten. A falu pedig szuper volt, sokkal jobb mint vartuk. A fohosok ott rohangaltak es szorakoztattak a nepet, volt welcome drink, Apuka szervalt maganak egy remek kis matroz sapkat, volt szuper kis furdozos resze nyugagakkal es a vizen vicces ugyessegi jatekokkal. Az egyiken Sanyival, Apaval es Adammal vegigmentunk, nagyon sokat nevettunk, es senki nem esett be a vizbe, vegig tudtunk menni rajta. 😜 a vegen kifekudtunk meg egyet az arnyekba pihenni es indultunk tovabb a kovetkezo uticelhoz.Read more

      Popeye Village

      July 24, 2020 in Malta ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

      Nach knapp 15 Minuten sind wir schon da. Auf dem Weg zum Hotel schauen wir uns noch das Popeye Village an. Hier wurde 1980 der Kinofilm mit Robin Williams gedreht. Die Kulissen haben sie erhalten und es befindet sich hier jetzt ein kleiner Wasser-/ Themenpark mit Animationsprogramm rund um Popeye. Allerdings schauen wir uns das Ganze nur von oben an. Wenn man an dem Parkplatz vorbei in die Sackgasse fährt hat man einen guten Blick auf die Anlage. Es läuft gerade eine Animationsshow und wir schauen ein bisschen zu. Die Bucht und das Wasser sind sehr schön und das Dorf sieht ganz witzig aus. Ob man dafür Eintritt bezahlen möchte soll jeder selbst entscheiden 😉.Read more

      Popeyes Village

      November 17, 2018 in Malta ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

      So our last full day in Malta today. Treated ourselves to a cup of tea in bed first off before getting up and walking to the local shop Blow & Go to get a little pressie for Bobbie as we had bourbons for Max & Izzy and Bobbie doesn’t like them. Upon return we sat in the reception area to wait for the rest of them to come down for breakfast. The weather was ok when we got up but then turned and a storm hit the bay. Torrential downpours and it went very black. As we were sat there, Naomi turned up and was concerned about a man out to sea who was clearly struggling. We told reception then out we went to try and let him know help was coming. The weather was awful and he couldn’t get back on his board. He was out there for about 40 minutes and clinging on to a life buoy. Anyway it settled and he eventually managed to get himself close to the shaw so we left, soaked to the skin and just before the police and the helicopter arrived 🚁🚁 . To say we were soaked was an understatement, so back to the room for a full change before breakfast.

      Not a lot on the list today except we needed to go back to the glass blowing place in Mdina for Naomi. We decided to go on a bit of a mystery ride on the way back and ended up at Popeyes village where the film was filmed many years ago. It was very windy but dry and it looked pretty good. We didn’t go in but you could see it all from the cliff top and a great view of the bay even though it was a bit black ☁️. Again I can remember Granny & Grandad and Aunty Jack and Jerry talking about it when I was younger, nice to see it.

      We returned to the hotel and zipped in for a bit of lunch before all of us descended on the swimming pool for a mess around. Not as warm as it had been but not cold by any means. Another little snack on the way out before heading up to get showered and changed. Early night out tonight as we were booked in the American Diner at 6.30pm for our last dinner of the holiday. It was great, burgers, chicken, ribs and all sorts of delights. As we ate a bit earlier, we had a bit of time before the kids disco at 8.30 so Sharon snd I went to Blow and Go for supplies for the plane and the kids went bowling - Izzy’s prize from the karaoke 🎤 last night. Fortunately for us all, little Izzy Wiz did win !!

      Finally off to the kids disco, quiz and show. The quiz tonight was photos of celebrities as they were younger - you guessed it we were crap at that. The show was “Cabaret”, sad to say we didn’t manage it to the end, we were flagging a bit so when the kids went up to bed, so did we. Gemma, Joe Bobbie Jo & Graham were left. Just back in the room, packing nearly done and kettle on. Early start in the morning as we head off home 🏠.

    • Day 2

      Søndag d. 18.2.

      February 18, 2018 in Malta ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

      Dagen startede med regnvejr, og på vej mod morgensvømning blev vi drivvåde af en tarvelig byge. Helt ærligt!....
      Formiddagens vandretur i gråvejr - men tørvejr - gik mod en lidt hemmelig sandstrand, som lå gemt godt af vejen. Over stok, sten, mudder og bakker gik vi næsten 9 km. Turens dramatiske højdepunkt var at jeg var helt sikker på at jeg så en finne i vandet. En haj, hvor sindsygt! Susanne troede ikke rigtig på det, så vi måtte tålmodig holde øje med overfladen. Et halvt minut senere dukkede en irriterende dykker op til overflade. Argh for helvede altså..... Så grinede chefen af mig igen.
      Eftermiddagens gåtur var til Popeye Vilage, hvor Disney engang optog en Skipper Skrækfilm med Robin Williams i hovedrollen. Byen er nu en lille forlystelsespark. Det er en lækker lagune.
      Aftenens grisefest (nærmere kaninfest) blev aflyst pga for få tilmeldte. Pokkers..... Aftensmaden blev alligevel indtaget i restaurant The Great Dane. Kylling og sværdfisk - bum.
      Vi gik meget trætte i seng.
