Often this vista offers a great view of the frequent firework displays across the island when festa celebrations coincide with your stay.

The Island of Malta region
Within seconds of waking, you can step from the apartment and into a blissful, safe sea, in the midst of magnificence and majesty, for you are in the heart of the earliest settlement of Malta, which became the first Maltese city of the Knights of St. John, and later the British Naval Headquarters for the Mediterranean for 150 years.
The Hypogeum, a world heritage site, is accessible by direct bus from the village of Vittoriosa as are the Tarxien Temples close by to the Hypogeum. DO BOOK your ticket(s) for THE HYPOGEUM on the internet before you leave home as tours do get booked well in advance. Go to: www.heritagemalta.org/hypogeum.html
The area is particularly popular with local fishermen. For those who love to fish, your meditative companions are more than likely to be Maltese. An inviting outcrop of rock immediately below the apartment is ideal for you to fish from. In addition the marina is popular with locals too.
Vittoriosa is one of the towns designated 'city' by the Knights of St. John. The atmosphere is steeped in history and intrigue. A profound sense of silence and peacefulness embraces you as you saunter through the streets of ancient houses and dwelling places. The church of St. Lawrenz dominates. Vittoriosa has been a popular film location and some of the buildings have featured time and again in films that you may well have seen. The Count of Monte Christo, Gladiator, and Troy were in part filmed within the Three Cities.
An international marina now plays host to an increasing number of super yachts from all over the world that come to berth for days at a time. Cruise liners gracefully glide into the Grand Harbour of Valletta, and these you can watch from the balcony of the apartment. Life on the sea is constantly rolling by. Always a quiet dignity prevails, and you can truly 'just be'.
The Maritime Museum is along the waterfront, and several small museums within the city walls. The Inquisitor's Palace is close by. From Vittoriosa square you have access to a swathe of exceptional restaurants with inspiring marina views: 'Sottovento', 'Manchurian', 'Tate' and 'Two and a Half Lemon' to entice you. There's also 'Twist', an ice cream bar here too. 'Cantina', and 'Del Borgo' are wine bars with food options ... all within easy walking distance of the apartment.

"an ideal place for a family who likes the sun and the sea"
We spend two wonderful weeks in Malta.
We were welcomed by the owner and got some good hints for starters (it was our first time in Malta).
The apartment offered enough space and rooms for us four, if kids are willing to share one room one can easily stay there with six people, perhaps more.
Kitchen was well equipped (we like to cook and didn't go our for each meal), bedrooms and bathrooms were fine, livingroom / kitchen as well.
WLAN was highly welcomed by the kids.
Shops are in walking distance, restaurants as well; to get to the bus it's a few minutes walk, but to get from a to b by bus can easily take one hour, so for the next time we will rent a car.
Local people are open-minded and really, really friendly, it's quite easy to get help or to start nice conversations.
If you like the sun and the sea, and enjoy a quick swim prior to breakfast, this is the right place, as the sea ist just 5 m away from the house.
We were lucky to be in Vittoriosa when the feast took place, we had the best place to watch the nice fireworks - just sit on the terrace and enjoy.
Thanks to Deborah for her warm welcome and assistance!

"Great stay in historic marina"
The apartment was large and well appointed suitable for the run around of a young family. It was ideally sitiuated for shops and more importantly close proximity to the marina restaurants. Whilst such proximity may have initially appealed to the adults, the children soon enjoyed their morning walk by the big boats to see the new arrivals. On a more local level, the children were soon adopted by the local harbour fishermen and looked in their buckets each evening to see their catches. The golden sun and old stone buildings always set an exotic evening backdrop which we will always remember.
