About the home
Our spacious apartment is in a typically Maltese quaint narrow street, with all the local shops and amenities literally just around the corner. Away from the tourist traps but convenient for most island activities.
A perfect place for that great FAMILY holiday enjoying the wonderful sandy beaches, for COUPLES looking to avoid the peak summer holiday rush, Malta GOLF breaks at the Royal Marsa Golf Club, SCUBA DIVING holidays in the crystal clear blue sea or simply a relaxing escape to a WARMER CLIMATE in the winter months to discover the historical features of the island dating back to pre-historic days, including the old capital city Mdina. Visit Malta today.
Whatever you are looking for, one thing is sure, when you arrive in Malta you will soon discover that most of your time will be spent outdoors. We have therefore created what we believe is our HAVEN OF RELAXATION on our spacious roof terrace.
By day you can lounge under the CLEAR BLUE SKY, with a cool glass of KINNIE (a thirst quenching Maltese soft drink) or a bottle of cold CISK LAGER, another locally produced beer. Simply switch off and relax, while the kids play on the X-BOX or watch a DVD on the 32 inch Flat screen TV in the cool living room!
After a long day out sightseeing or enjoying the wonderful beaches around the island, just relax under the stars and DINE AL FRESCO on our 63 sqr mtr roof terrace. Or maybe just enjoy a drink or two with the picturesque view of the old capital city of Mdina lit up in gold in the dark sky at night. During spring and summer you wil lfind you spend most of your days and evenings up here relaxing.
Then of course there's also the weekend FESTAS which take place during the summer months, were you will be able to experience the amazing FIREWORKS DISPLAYS from the comfort of your own haven's private roof terrace.

The Island of Malta region
The Maltese archipelago lies virtually at the centre of the Mediterranean, with Malta 93km south of Sicily and 288km north of Africa. The archipelago consists of three islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino with a total population of 400,000 inhabitants over an area of 316sq km and a coastline of 196.8km (not including 56.01 km for the island of Gozo).
Malta is the largest island and the cultural, commercial and administrative centre. Gozo is the second largest island and is more rural, characterised by fishing, tourism, crafts and agriculture while Comino is largely uninhabited, but home of the fantastic Blue Lagoon.
With SUPERBLY SUNNY WEATHER, expansive BEACHES, a thriving NIGHT-LIFE and 7,000 years of intriguing history, there is a great deal to see and do. With a little help from any guidebook, including our handy book of tips of local knowledge, captivating places of interest are immediately identified – the world famous Hypogeum selected as a place of World Heritage by UNESCO, prehistoric temples and grand palaces are but a few.
The long relationship between the Islanders and the various nationalities that occupied Malta over the centuries has created a marriage of styles and traditions, giving the Islands a fascinating eclectic culture.
The Naxxar area
NAXXAR is a typical medium sized HILLTOP VILLAGE/TOWN consisting of an older core of centuries old winding narrow roads, fully of limestone built picturesque town houses close to the imposing church.
It's size means that all conveniences may be found within a half mile radius of the church, such as supermarkets, chemists, doctors' clinics, ironmongers, typical village band and political clubs (bars, all serving very affordable beer and wine!) and a couple of decent restaurants, wine bars, pizza places, and a Maltese "Pastizzeria" serving the must-try "Pastizzi" - hot Maltese ricotta-cheese cheesecakes or crushed-pea pea cakes, in the main available for pennies.
Naxxar also offers the noble and opulent PALAZZO PARISIO with its amazing lavish and sumptuous interiors and colourful PICTURESQUE GARDENS - why not stop for a cool refreshing drink or light lunch or spend some time walking around the 19th CENTURY PALACE. you will also find several other historic sights in the vicinity, and just down the road is Mosta with it's very well visited MOSTA DOME (church ) - Find out about the unexploded bomb in the second world war when you visit malta.
Naxxar is only around 10 minutes drive to Sliema and St Julians, the nearest beaches/seaside towns also boasting plenty of NIGHTLIFE and RESTAURANT/ENTERTAINMENT options. Historic Mdina (Medina - the Old Capital City) is literally visible from Naxxar - Great view from our malta haven apartment's roof terrace. The great thing about the location of our malta haven flat is that practically anywhere in Malta is within 20-25 minutes maximum drive, which makes it an excellent base from which to explore the Maltese islands.

Firstly, there were no surprises - everything was as advertised. The apartment was clean and well furnished with good beds and all the normal requirements needed. Whilst located in a narrow "old" street, it is only 5 minutes walk from the main road and bus stop. Do not expect Naxxar to be a holiday destination - there are no real attractions in the town, other than the Palazzo Parisio which is a must do. However, it is an ideal location from where to explore the island - excellent bus connectivity. Staying in Naxxar gives one a different perspective on Maltese living. The greatest plus factor was the roof terrace - we spent every night here, enjoying drinks (the extra fridge on the roof kept the drinks cold) and watching the fire works in the distance.

the flat is very spacious and open plan and has everything you would need in the kitchen if you wanted to eat in- the location is very central so easy to get to beaches or anywhere else by car or by local bus. It is in the center of Naxxar so close to the square where there are a couple of restaurants, bars, and some shops, but on a quiet street. We went mid-June which was quite hot so did not spend much time on the roof patio during the day.. parking in Malta is a problem but we always found a spot not too far away.
I recommend it as a base for exploring the island.

The unit was very well presented with easy access by the driver who picked us at at the airport. Easy drive to Naxxar which was central to many places. Walking to some restaurants proved easy. Unit great, fully functional 'home' atmosphere. Television, sound system for ipod, internet access. We had father in law, my wife, and 2 sisters in law across the 3 bedrooms. KItchen amenities complete, oven, fridge, microwave etc. Unit on first floor with walk up some stairs and up again to the roof top private terrace (with front loader w/machine). Local pizza joint a let down though -what was that sausage pizza??). Supermarket a short walk. We hired a car - just needed to get in early for a parking spot nearby (some narrow one-way lanes). First time to Malta and all was fantastic. Beer cold, food great, people lovely, Island and Gozo super - to me another wonderful part of our small world. Let down was the worlds oldest bus we rode on...where were those gears! - however this was due to change with a complete new bus service. Valetta not far on the bus and that was a wonderful city. Anne and Francis hosted us very well and were wonderful. I will return!
