Townhouse | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 7
This beautiful, historic townhouse is ideal for groups or families with older children, but also makes a cosy retreat for couples, to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. It is situated in a traditional area of malta and is away from the touristy, expensive areas which give a tacky view of malta. It has three vaulted ceiling double bedrooms; the master bedroom includes super king-size bed, with en-suite. All the bedrooms are air conditioned meaning you can enjoy a good night sleep.The townhouse has an internal courtyard with large heated plunge-pool/Jacuzzi, great for relaxation during the midday sun or with a glass of wine at night. As the jacuzzi is heated it can be used any time of day, even in the summer many unheated pools in Malta are often too cold to use all day. The Mill room, a large vaulted ceilinged lounge, is one of the remaining few left in Malta. The Morning room, next to the kitchen, offers a relaxing space to enjoy breakfast. There is a bakers and patisserie just round the corner selling traditional maltese bread and pastries which make for a great cheap snack to take back to the house and enjoy round the jacuzzi.
This townhouse is packed full of history and features that date back many centuries, some foundation stones are even from the times of the Roman Empire. It is also within driving distance of local sandy beaches. A car is therefore recommended, but the buses in Rabat go to the main terminal in Valetta, allowing for travel across the island. A booklet will also be left inside the house, detailing places of interest as well as great dining establishments. We can also arrange all car hire for you on the island. We use a company that we have used for many years as a family which is very reliable.

The Island of Malta region
Malta is an extremely historic island due to its location in the Mediterranean. Over the summer (end of May to September) the temperature is always hot, and pleasantly warm April to May, and October to November.
Rabat offers a number of impressive churches, with some of the oldest catacombs in the world. It also has many restaurants within walking distance of the house.
Rabat is next to Mdina, the "Silent City", with some impressive buildings and spectacular views. Mdina must be enjoyed both in the day and at night.
The main festivals in Rabat take place over Easter and the summer months and are impressive sights with fireworks and parades. These are great for all the family. In rabat many of the locals come together during the festivals to celebrate bringing the streets alive- a must see. Over christmas there are also many traditional festivities that take place.
Nearly all of the sandy beaches which are found in Malta are only a short drive away. Directions to which are to be found in the booklet left in the house.
