The apartment offers two bedrooms sleeping five people and the option of using a sofabed to accommodate another two. In the lounge,/dining area, you will find a widescreen TV, plus unlimited WiFi access and a dining room table and chairs. The fully fitted kitchen offers all amenities for a great self catering holiday, but right on your doorstep are numerous good restaurants and bars.
There is a small terrace overlooking gardens at the back of the property and being on a quiet street, you can enjoy all the nightlife facilities of St Julians and Paceville, without the hustle and bustle of the main town, which is a very short walk away.
The apartment is ideally situated for anyone taking language courses at one of the numerous language schools in the area.
Below is a brief description of things to see and do on the island, but for more detailed information, visit www.guide2malta.com.
For beach lovers, there is a small beach at St Georges Bay, about a 15 minute walk away. However it does get quite busy, so why not do what the locals do and swim off the rocks along the St Julians and Sliema seafront's? They have even built in steps in the rocks to help! The largest sandy beaches are in the north of the island, located at Mellieha and Golden Bay. Further afield, Gozo has some beautiful beaches, but are more difficult to access.
Sliema is the home of the major shopping opportunities in Malta with large household names such as Marks and Spencer, Zara and more. There is also a shopping centre at Tigne Point.
Also from Sliema, you can catch a ferry to Valletta, or take one of the numerous boat trips from the Sliema Ferries area along the promenade. Choose from Grand Harbour Tours, trips to Blue Lagoon and Comino, plus numerous other trips.
Malta has a wealth of history and interesting places to explore.
Valletta is the capital of Malta and is one of the best preserved fortified cities in Europe. Built by the Knights of St John in the 1600's, the walls are immensely thick and impenetrable. Within the city are numerous museums and beautiful churches to visit, particularly St Johns Co-Cathedral.
Further north is the smaller fortified city of Mdina, which was the capital of Malta before Valletta was built. Also known as the Silent City, it is a joy to wander through the narrow streets and admire the old Maltese architecture.
The Blue Lagoon on the small island of Comino is stunning, but has suffered for it's popularity. You can do day trips to the island, but our recommendation would be to seek out one of the companies running evening trips to Blue Lagoon. The English Rose boat offers this from Mellieha - trip to Blue Lagoon, leaving around 1600 and returning at around 1100. Price includes BBQ on the beach and free flowing wine.
Gozo is definitely worth a visit if you have the time. The capital Victoria (also known as Rabat) has recently been restored with the Citadel offering a great view into life on the island in the past.Get the full listing »
