If you are a small group or family or are looking for a romantic getaway or a peaceful and tranquil base to return to after exploring all that Malta has to offer this is the perfect location for you.

The apartment occupies the first floor of a waterfront buiding. 2 of the 3 balconies enjoy uninterupted views across the Creek. The 3rd overlooks Triq is Sirena, a street as charming as its name suggests.

There are restaurants to suit all budgets, shops and a supermarket within a 5 minute walk and more shops in the neighbouring "cities" of Bormla and Birgu (also known as Cospicua and Vittoriosa). There are more restaurants on the Vittoriosa waterfront which is a short walk or an even shorter water taxi ride away. A water taxi ride in a typical maltese Dghajsa is a "must do" and you can be picked up from directly outside the apartment building.

There is a regular bus service from the main square from where you can catch a bus to Valletta and from there to anywhere on the island but again being on the waterfront you can beat the traffic by taking the ferry or a water taxi at very reasonable prices.

Bed linen and towels are supplied. For those staying longer than a week a maid service can be offered at an extra cost. A welcome pack consisting of essential information and provisions for your first few hours will be there when you arrive.

The Island of Malta region

Malta lies just South of the island of Sicily in the Mediteranean sea and enjoys on average 300 days of sunshine a year. It is a popular tourist destination with a rich cultural history and an hospitable population. For such a small island it has a surprisingly large number of interesting places to visit. Not only does it offer spectacular coastal scenery but a great many places of historic interest. Valetta and the 3 cities (one of which is Senglea) are of particular historic significance.

The island is one of the most popular international destinations for scuba divers both for wreck diving and for its beautiful underwater landscapes and sealife. All other water sports are on offer all over the island. There is a golf course nearby.

The cuisine is typically mediteranean and there are a vast number of restaurants, bars and nightclubs for the more nocturnal visitor to enjoy.

The main beaches are in the North West of the island about 20km away. It will take about half an hour to reach Golden Bay so if that is on your itinerary a car is advisable. Car hire on the island is very reasonably priced.

A day trip to Gozo is highly reccomended and there are regular ferries to Gozo from Valetta.


Nowadays Senglea and the 3 cities is tranquil and peaceful and as such the ideal retreat after a day or night of exploration, adventure and entertainment. By contrast its history has witnessed much conflict because of its unique position overlooking the capital Valletta across Grand Harbour. The original observation position above Senglea point is an iconic image in itself and now stands in the very aptly named Safe Haven gardens which is a 5 minute walk away from the apartment.

Two of the most significant events in the history of conflict involving Senglea are the siege of 1565 and its almost complete destruction by arial bombing during world war 2. The impressive city walls, ramparts and bastions which surround the 3 cities are evidence of these less settled times.

Dockland (or Galley) creek which lies between Senglea and Vittoriosa was the Maltese base of the British Navy from 1799 to 1979 and what was once the British Navy bakery on the waterfront of Vittorioa has been converted into a very impressive maritime museum. Other attractions include the Inquisitor's Palace, the Malta at War museum and the Parish Church museum in Vittoriosa.

There are 4 equally impressive churches in the 3 cities 2 of which are in Senglea which hosts 2 main festivals each year on the 31st March and the 8th September. These are spectacular events which ought not to be missed and co-incide with the Regattas in Grand Harbour. Each of the Three Cities also stages its own Easter Festa.

"Fantastic apartment with great views"

Excellent apartment with brilliant views over the creek, in a good location in the quiet resort of Senglea (Isla). Good choice of restaurants would especially recommend Enchante, Marina and Slaneys. Within easy walking distance of the ferry to Valetta, the War Museum and Maritime Museum (both highly recommended) in Vittoriosa.

Brilliant fortnight in this apartment and will definitely return.

"Absolutely Perfect!"

We had a lovely holiday staying at this very well equipped and spacious apartment. It was everything we had hoped for and more! The views from the balconies, as others have said, are beautiful and it was so relaxing to sit and watch the boats after a busy day exploring Malta.

Senglea itself is a charming place to stay - tranquil but with everything you might need virtually on your doorstep. There are numerous small shops for provisions and going into them was rather like stepping back in time. No need for a large supermarket here!

The bus service in Malta is very reliable and inexpensive and we used the buses frequently. You can get virtually anywhere in Malta on them.

There is so much to see and do here that it's impossible to get bored. We stayed for 10 nights and could quite happily have stayed longer as we enjoyed it so much.

Vince the owner is, like the apartment, perfect. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he responded to all queries in super-quick time. Thank you Vince. It is very reassuring when renting an apartment to deal with such a helpful and conscientious owner. You can honestly book this accommodation with complete confidence.

We would, of course, unhesitatingly recommend this apartment and would very much love to return ourselves one day.

"A fascinating place for a holiday living among the locals"

Right in the centre of all that is happening in Senglea. The location, layout and design of this spacious apartment make it excellent accommodation to spend a lot of time, rather than just a base for exploring Malta. The balconies offer spectacular views across the creek and down the waterfront. Right outside are many good low cost restuarants, spots for swimming and the ferry to Valletta which is only a couple of euros for a return trip. It's great to step out the front door and be somewhere.
