Townhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Templar House offers guests a true Maltese experience. This unique period house is situated on the edge of Vittoriosa in the heart of a traditional, friendly Maltese community. It is only a few minutes walk away from the glamorous Grand Harbour Marina, where super yachts berth and film stars have been known to take their morning coffee whilst filming on location in Malta!
All the conveniences of The Three Cities are just a short stroll away - restaurants, cafes, wine bars, casino, shops, museums, churches, the ancient fort, fabulous scenery, water taxi and boat trips. This area is away from the tourist hub but is within easy reach of all island attractions by either car, bus, taxi or water taxi.
The house is a large and traditional Maltese stone house set down a small but typical and charming alley. It has recently been renovated and maintains the traditional Maltese style but in addition modern features have been included to make for a very comfortable stay. For example, air conditioning is in all the bedrooms and cable TV has been installed. Stunning views can be enjoyed from the large and private roof terrace where one is able to enjoy a bbq and a cold beer!

The Island of Malta region
The climate of Malta is Mediterranean, with hot, dry summers and mild winters. During the summer months (May to September) there is little rain, and about 12 hours of sunshine daily. During the winter months it is mild with on average 5-6 hours of sunshine per day, meaning it is great to visit all year round.
A trip to Malta allows you to relax in a warm, friendly and centrally situated Mediterranean island, where the sea is crystal clear and the climate mild all the year round.
The island is small meaning it is easy to get around. Malta has something for everyone. From old historic cities with fascinating museums and medieval palaces to young and vibrant coastal towns where you can simply relax and soak up the sun or enjoy a variety of water sports, fishing and diving.
Malta is perhaps best known for its world heritage sites, most prominently the megalithic temples which are the oldest free-standing structures on Earth.
Valletta and Sliema are full of brand name shops where one can find anything that the heart desires. Open air markets in Malta are very popular. There is an open market practically every day. It is impossible to mention everything this gem of an Island has to offer; the Maltese people are renowned for their hospitality and friendship and are only too pleased to help if you require any assistance.
Vittoriosa is the oldest of the Three Cities and was the headquarters of the Knights of St John when they came to Malta in 1530. Having withstood the Great Siege of 1565, Vittoriosa became the seat of government in Malta, prior to Valletta being made the capital city.
Vittoriosa cannot help but captivate you as you meander through the myriad of wonderful ancient streets and houses. It is also home to a number of museums such as the Maritime Museum along the water front, the Inquisitor’s Palace and the Malta at War Museum. There are also occasional festivals and firework displays.
Vittoriosa, due to its historical charm and beauty, is a popular film location and some of the buildings have featured in films such as The Count of Monte Christo, Gladiator, and Troy. It is also an international marina hosting an increasing number of super yachts from all over the world that come to berth at Vittoriosa. Cruise liners gracefully glide into the Grand Harbour of Valletta which you can observe from the roof terrace of the house.
Along the harbour front and in Vittoriosa itself there are a number of restaurants, wine bars and cafes serving delicious Maltese cuisine including an array of freshly caught seafood to enjoy whilst in the idyllic surroundings of the Grand Harbour and the marina.There are also water taxi and boat trips available from outside maritime museum
