Elegant, superb and impeccable very spacious two bedroom (110m²' interior floor area plus 18m²' terrace) corner apartment which is luxuriously and genuinely finished by a professional interior designer and lights engineer, fully furnished to very high standards. The apartment is located in the smallest block of the latest luxurious and most modern residential complex in the area of Tigne' Sliema, an area well known for its luxury residences so close to the crystal clear rocky beaches.
The apartment enjoys an excellent location which is only 2 minutes walk from the nice rocky beaches of Qui-Si-Sana and Tigne', the well known promenade and the latest shopping complex with over 50 branded shops (including a supermarket and pharmacy). It is also within walking distance to restaurants, bars, more beaches, more shops, the bus terminus, taxi stands and the ferry area (for fantastic day and evening cruises around the Maltese Islands nearly all year round and also the water taxi to Valletta). Basically, it is central to every amenity but at the same time it is away from the excessive noises and traffic of the city.
This property is fully equipped with all the necessary amenities and modern day luxuries. It consists of two spacious and comfortable double bedrooms (main with en-suite bathroom with shower), one comfortable main bathroom with bath, flexible shower head and shower screen, a large modern white kitchen with cooking island, all appliances and an extendable dining table and a comfortable living area with a leather sofa and 42 inch LED TV with internet applications. All rooms enjoy nice apertures leading to the outside. The terrace is ideal for enjoying outdoor relaxation and dining as it is equipped with a 4-seater outdoor sofa set..
There is also a secure 1 car space located underneath the apartment included in the price, in order to get rid of the parking problem that there is in Sliema during the day. However, thanks to the good network of public transport in Sliema, a car is not necessary to explore the Maltese Islands since the very near bus stops make it so easily to go to the main attractions and places. The public transport service is cheap, frequent, reliable and convenient. All our previous guests who did not rent a car, have praised the great location of our apartment and its proximity to the public transport link.
The apartment is served with a lift which is accessible from the street level and also from the garage. The apartment is also adequate for people with reduced mobility.
The property will be cleaned and prepared prior to each arrival, where fresh bed linen and towels are provided. We do not charge any cleaning fees however we expect that you leave the apartment clean and take care of it, just as if it were your own home.

The Maltese archipelago of Malta, Gozo and Comino is a relatively small group of islands in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea but with a rich history built through the years which now offers many places of interest and things to discover. Just over 90km south of Sicily and 288km north of Africa, these islands have had various conquerors during the years leaving behind them a mark in history.
Having a total population of around 400,000 people, Malta is the largest island and is the one with the most history and commercial entities. Gozo is the second largest and is 'greener' because it is more rural than Malta, where more crafts and traditions are still practiced among the inhabitants. Comino is mostly known for its Blue Lagoon, a crystal clear rocky beach in front of a nice four star hotel.
Enjoying sunny weather for the majority of the year, having a wide selection of different beaches, having an exquisite cuisine made of traditional ingredients and over 7,000 years of history, there is a great deal to see and do during your holiday.
These islands have their own language – Maltese, which is similar to Arabic. However, English is also an official language and many people talk and understand English very well. Other spoken languages are Italian, some French, some German and some Spanish. Also, since 2008, Malta adopted the Euro as its single currency and is one of the members of the European Union.
Malta's capital city is Valletta, the hub of historical sites and museums. Places of interest not to miss in Valletta are St.John's Co-Cathedral, the Grand Master's Palace, the Museum of Archaeology and the War Museum. There are a lot of activities and exhibitions which take place in Valletta throughout the year. Prior to your arrival in Malta, check any local websites to see the events taking place at the moment. The Alarme and In Guardia Historical re-enactments, together with multimedia attractions offer an overview of Malta's history. They are very interesting especially to those who would like to discover more on Malta's past.
The pre-historic temples of Mnajdra, Tarxien and Ggantija (in Gozo) are a must visit. There are also the underground catacombs of St.Agatha and St.Paul in Rabat, and the Hypogeum in Paola (selected as a place of World Heritage by UNESCO). The Roman Villa in Rabat is truly a historical place to visit, which is next to Mdina.
Mdina was the capital city of Malta before Valletta. Mdina is also full of history and do visit Mdina in the evening and walk along the old alleys while admiring the whole city lit up creating a unique experience.
Unique activities not to miss are the weekly village feasts in summer, the Sunday open markets of Valletta, Marsaxlokk and Victoria (Gozo) all year round, a harbor cruise for spectacular views of the capital, the Carnival of Nadur (Gozo) and Valletta in February and the Good Friday processions.
For the young visitors there are also some great attractions not to miss. To mention a few there are the Splash and Fun water park, Popeye Village, Mediterraneo Marine Park, bowling and cinemas.
Going out of the central area of Malta, one discovers the rural side of the nation. The old villages comprising of the church and houses along narrow alleys in the centre are spectacular to see and walk through. There are over 360 churches in the islands, some of which deserve a visit, including the Mosta Dome (having the third largest dome in Europe), St.John's Co-Cathedral, Mdina Cathedral, the church of St.Philip in Zebbug.
These are only some of the attraction one finds in the Maltese Islands. There is so much more to see and discover, either on your own or with an organised tour.
Sliema is Malta's preferred destination amongst tourists because of its location and the variety it has to offer to all its visitors.

There are numerous diving schools in this area and also some paid beach lidos along the coast with nice swimming pools. The wide promenade along the coast which stretches from Ta' Xbiex and continues up to St.Julian;s is not to be missed either during a sunny winter day or during a cool summer evening.
3. Restaurants: One can choose from different cuisines ranging from Mediterranean, Italian, Maltese, Thai, Japanese, American and Mexican.
4. Pubs/night life: Pubs are an ideal night out with friends or family, especially if going to enjoy a nice football match with a delicious beer. Food there is also great. The night life continues till the early hours of the following morning and is alive during the whole year. For those who like discotheques, Paceville is just 5minutes far by car.
