The Island of Malta region
From its North African and Arabic influences (listen carefully to the local language) to the Sicilian-inspired cuisine, Malta is a microcosm of the Mediterranean. Few European countries have such concentrated history, architecture and, yes, beaches in so tiny an area.
There’s been an eclectic mix of influences and a roll-call of rulers over the centuries, but be in no doubt: Malta is not just a notional outpost of Italy or a relic of colonial Britain. This island nation (all 316 sq km of it, comprising the islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino) has a quirky character all of its own.
From prehistoric temples, to the baroque architecture of Valletta, feasts of rabbit to festas of noisy fireworks, rattling buses to colourful fishing boats, this nation has loads of unique charm.
The Sliema area
The resort of Sliema is located on the Malta’s east coast 5km north of Valletta by road and just 0.5km by ferry
Sliema occupies a peninsular with sea fronts on ‘The Strand (Ix-Xatt)’ facing Marsamxett harbour, Valletta, Sliema Creek & Manoel island or ‘Tower Road (Triq It-Torri)’ and the open Mediterranean sea

I arrived to a large bright maisonette, immaculate, and just a stones throw from the beach, with parking. I was very impressed the maiaonette was very spacious with two goodsized double rooms, and twin bedrooms with a cot. The living room was very large with a large glass table with 6 chairs, and a very nice sofa/bed,there was a tv, as well as use of a phone , washing machine with drier in the utility room, as well as space to hang your clothes outside through the patiodoor. The windows were very easy to open, as the house is very modern. With a homey feel to it. I had a pleasent stay in sliema, and definately would recomend this lovely home to rent for your holidays.
