SEAFRONT apt at Grand harbour
About the home
This block of apartments was given the name of 'Castrum Maris'. Castrum maris is latin for 'The Castle by the sea'. This happens to be the medieval name of Fort St Angelo which is exacly in front of our apartments. Under the british rule, the latter became known as HMS St. Angelo and was a focal point in the wartime effort of world war 2.
These brand new seafront apartments are luxurious and designer finished and are equiped with all amneties one expects in top quality accomodation. They are situated in the heart of Senglea in a stunning location of the island with the enjoyable views of the Grand Harbour, Fort St. Angelo and the Capital City Valletta. Moreover the property is close to some of Malta’s key tourist attractions. These state of the art apartments are privately owned and can be rented for both short and long let. The apartment's large balconies enable one to dine/have tea outside whilst absorbing the views of the Grand Harbour and Valletta.

The Island of Malta region
Malta is the largest island. Gozo is the second largest island and is more rural, characterised by fishing, tourism, crafts and agriculture while Comino is largely uninhabited. The population is 400,000 inhabitants over an area of 316sq km and a coastline of 196.8km. With superbly sunny weather, sandy beaches, a thriving nightlife and 7,000 years of intriguing history, there is a great deal to see and do.
On 1st January 2008 Malta adopted the euro as its currency. On 1st February 2008 the euro became the only legal tender currency in Malta and Gozo. In line with EU legislation on controls of cash entering or leaving the Community, any person entering or leaving Malta carrying cash or other monetary value of which is equal to or in excess of €10,000 or equivalent is obliged to fill in the appropriate declaration form available from Customs.
Medical care in Malta is available through both public and private hospitals and the quality of medical care in Malta is excellent. However we suggest that before you travel to the Maltese Islands all necessary measures are taken to ensure that you, and anyone else travelling with you, is up-to-date on all routine and recommended immunisations according to schedules defined in your respective country.
One can make use of the public tranport service which operates around Malta and Gozo. One can also make use of taxis. In order to cross between Malta and Gozo a ferry operates throughout the day.
Malta's weather and climate are strongly influenced by the sea and have a very characteristic Mediterranean flavour, similar to that found in southern Italy or southern Greece. The climate is typically Mediterranean, with hot, dry summers, warm and sporadically wet autumns, and short, cool winters with adequate rainfall. Winters are mild with only rare occurrences of cold weather brought by north and northeast winds from central Europe. In fact, daytime winter temperatures almost never fall below 10ºC (50ºF), while night-time winter temperatures never fall below 5ºC (41ºF). Summers are warm, dry and very sunny. The weather usually shows signs of warming up in April, heralding in a long spell of hot, dry weather. It rarely rains from April to August. July and August are Malta's hottest months with daytime temperatures usually above 30ºC (86ºF) and quite often also above 35ºC (95ºF).
Malta has its own language Maltese, with English being the second native language. Many citizens around Malta speak both Maltese and English fluently. One can also find other languages being spoken including Italian and French.

This is the ideal retreat to sit and watch the world go by. In an ideal location with local restaurants and shops within walking distance and excellent views over the harbour. You can just sit back and watch all the various water traffic from cruise liners to local water taxis come and go.
Easy access to Valletta either by boat or regular bus service. Local restaurants with good food, reasonably priced and friendly service. Had a great holiday and will try and return again next year.
