Experience the real Malta in this house full of character. COMPLETELY REFURBISHED IN WINTER 2013/2014.

The comfortable Red House gives you all you need for a perfect stay:

- two bedrooms: one double bed and two single beds

- bathroom with brand new shower, toilet and wash hand basin

- two traditional Maltese balconies

- a comfortable living/dining with TV/DVD player, books, tourist information

- a kitchen with hob, coffee machine, toaster, oven, fridge, freezer, cooker and all utensils

Vittoriosa is one of Malta's real hidden gems. You will experience the real Malta here, with little shops owned and run by the proud villagers that love to help you. Soon after your arrival you will get to know them and often be invited into their homes.

Buy your bread from the old bakery where hundreds of breads are baked freshly every day in the wood oven. Without a doubt the best Maltese bread.

Be part of the traditional 'Festa's', the religious feasts, or the famous Birgu by Candlelight Festival. Watch the start of the Rolex Midlesea Race. Wonder around in the meandering mediaeval streets. Enjoy the quietness and silence at night.

Within walking distance from The Red House you find wine bars, cafe's, restaurants, convenience stores, Malta's finest museums, churches, fortresses and Malta's most beautiful Super Yacht Marina with 6 restaurants overlooking the harbour.

There's simply too much to discover, so you'll keep coming back.

"Een on-ontdekt pareltje."

The Red House in Birgu is de ideale plek op Malta wanneer je van rust, cultuur, lokale sfeer en vriendelijke, behulpzame dorpsgenoten houdt. Het appartement is van alle gemakken voorzien, tijdens onze week in The Red House ontbrak het ons aan niets. Het gerenoveerde appartement is schoon, lekker koel tijdens warme dagen en op steenworp afstand van de lokale winkeltjes. (vooral de authentieke bakker is een aanrader, heerlijk Maltees brood!) Het bijzonder vriendelijke en warme welkom van Remco en Jessica maakte het plaatje compleet.
Het dorp Birgu is een nog (bijna) onontdekt pareltje in Europa. We voelden ons er meteen thuis. Van de wandelingen door de vele kleine, pittoreske Maltese steegjes konden we geen genoeg krijgen.
Om lekker buiten de deur te eten hoef je niet ver te zoeken, goede restaurantjes en barretjes aan de boulevard en op het plein. Vooral de zeevruchten, pasta, het brood en het lokale bier 'Cisk' vielen bij ons erg in de smaak. (eten en drinken voor goede prijzen!)
Wanneer wij weer naar Malta op vakantie gaan zullen we zeker weer in The Red House overnachten, een aanrader!

"Charming house of character in the heart of a wonderful historical city."

We spent a wonderful week in this well equipped and spotlessly clean house. Owners are friendly, uncomplicated and very helpful. Excellent location with plenty of gastronomical highlights in walking distance (e.g. Tal Petut, Del Borgo). Although centrally located, it was a quiet street (including neighbours). A five minute stroll will take you to the Marina where you can enjoy a cappucino for a massive 1.50 EUR whilst yachtspotting.
