Townhouse | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This stylish and unique traditional corner Maltese Townhouse sleeping 4/6 persons in the heart of the lively city of Sliema is intimate and comfortable, yet luxurious and cosmopolitan.
Location: The house is conveniently situated in a quiet road within the town centre, just seconds away from the sea, the Strand promenade, the Sliema seafront, the restaurants, the cafes and all the shops. Swimming zones are also within walking distance.
Transport: All major cultural, leisure, entertainment, commercial and corporate sites are within easy reach. The bus stop is just 100m down the road allowing access to all areas of the island easily. In the very same location is the quick ferry boat into the historical capital city of Valletta [10 minutes boat trip] offering an array of museums and cultural sites. Here, you will also find various shops, cafes and restaurants. Bus ride to St.Julian's takes only 7 minutes.
Accomodation: Layout consists of an open plan kitchen/dining room and living/TV room [2 extra sofa beds] with a bathroom at ground level leading to a very spacious double bedroom suite with its very own separate changing room and bathroom beneath. On the first floor one is to find another bedroom [double/two single] with a balcony and a private shower room. A beautiful, traditional spiral stone staircase leads onto the roof-top terrace which is ideal for relaxing and entertaining. This is also the only area in the house allocated to smoking.
Once in Malta you could purchase a return day trip to Sicily from offices nearby or better still, charter my very own classic sailing yacht (skipper included) for trips round Malta, Gozo and possibly Sicily at a discounted price. If you have any further queries do not hesitate to contact me.

The Island of Malta region
Megaliths, medieval dungeons and Calypso's Cave – The Maltese Islands are positively mythic. The narrow meandering streets of their towns and villages lead to the main square, which is invariably dominated by the huge baroque church. As the countryside is dotted with medieval towers, wayside chapels and the oldest known human structures in the world, the Islands have rightly been described as an open-air museum.
The Maltese archipelago lies virtually at the centre of the Mediterranean, 93 km south of Sicily and 288 km north of Africa. The archipelago consists of three islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino with a total population of over 400,000 inhabitants occupying an area of 316 square kilometers.
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. Comino, the smallest of the trio, has one hotel and is largely uninhabited.
With superbly sunny weather, attractive beaches, a thriving nightlife and 7,000 years of intriguing history, there is a great deal to see and do.
Sliema is the island's most fashionable residential area. Here also is the finest shopping in Malta, loads of restaurants and coffee shops, miles of rocky beaches and a beautiful promenade stretching from just outside the house all the way to the picturesque fishing village of Spinola Bay in St. Julian's.
All major cultural, leisure, entertainment, commercial and corporate sites are within easy reach. The bus stop is just 100m down the road allowing access to all areas of the island easily. In the very same location is the quick ferry boat into the historical capital city of Valletta [10 minutes boat trip] offering an array of museums and cultural sites. Here, you will also find various shops, cafes and restaurants.
Neighboring St Julian's (15 minutes walk along the promenade) is Malta's gastronomic centre, where restaurants of all descriptions are available. The St Julian's district of Paceville is home of the island's nightlife and casino. (Admission to casinos requires an identity card or passport. Foreign nationals must be 18 to enter.)
