Description from owner

Description

This property is a large duplex one bedroom townhouse within the main square of Mdina or L-Imdina, Malta's old capital city. Mdina is a fortified Medieval city of more or less 300 inhabitants. It is one of Europe's finest examples of an ancient walled city and is extraordinary in its mix of medieval and baroque architecture. This property is found in one of the most prominent and outstanding locations in the ancient walled city of Mdina: St. Paul's Square facing the Cathedral of St. Paul.

Living in Mdina is comparable to residing in an open air museum. It is a perfect location for those who enjoy culture and for those who would truly like to experience residing in this magnificent city steeped in history where everything is within walking distance. Its location cannot be emphasised enough - not only is it situated WITHIN the walled city of Mdina (not in other towns such as Rabat, Bahrija, Mtarfa or Mosta nor in the outer-limits of Mdina), but it is situated in St.

Its location cannot be emphasised enough - not only is it situated WITHIN the walled city of Mdina (not in other towns such as Rabat, Bahrija, Mtarfa or Mosta nor in the outer-limits of Mdina), but it is situated in St. Paul's Square, the main centre of his city overlooking the Cathedral.

The property has been recently renovated with modern furnishings. The final result is a comfortable property that can host 3 people both in the summer and winter months. Its location and nature make it perfect for small groups of 2 and 3. For potential guest's convenience, here is a general description of the layout of the house.

It is spread over 2 floors connected by a spiral staircase.

The ground floor consists of an entrance room that acts as the dining room. A circular table dominates this room, providing adequate seating capacity for our guests. The large front door provides a readily accessible source of natural sunlight where one can enjoy one's meals. One then proceeds into a recently re-modelled kitchen that has been supplemented with all amenities. These include a cooker, oven, fridge, freezer, microwave, kettle etc. There is also a washing machine and an ironing board set for our guests convenience. The washing amenities consist of a quaint shower room with a separate W.C.

The top floor consists of a large bedroom and living room with a writing/study area. The main feature of this comfortable area is a spacious balcony, accessible from both the bedroom and living room, that overlooks the square and the Cathedral of Malta.

The large bedroom that overlooks the Cathedral of Malta comfortable sleeps 2 people, in 2 single beds or 1 large double bed (as the single beds can be adjoined together). The property can host another person in a folding bed. The living room consists of recently upholstered sofas that provide a perfect place for one to relax, read a book and simply watch the time go by, from one of Mdina's best locations. In this room we provide numerous books, maps and touristic information that all guests to Mdina will find useful. The option to sit on the balcony in Malta's glorious weather and enjoy such activities in the fresh air is a unique perk of this property. The possibility of dining on this balcony is one that most guests would also enjoy. On the top floor, one also finds a small study area, where a cosy desk is situated under a window.

We will do our utmost to ensure that you will enjoy your stay in Mdina. Should any guest require anything in particular - please let us know. We live nearby and do our best to help. Myself or a member of my family will be available to welcome the guests to the property: we will meet you in Mdina, show you the house and possibly give you a short tour of the house and Mdina should you desire. We consider ourselves accommodating and will do our best to ensure that your stay is comfortable. We are also similarly available should you need any information regarding what to see and do on our beautiful island.

Apart from being a lovely house, its situation not only within the actual city of Mdina, but in the main square of this astonishing city is unrivalled. Mdina is truly a gem which my description cannot do it justice. Mdina is one of Europe's finest examples of an ancient walled city and is extraordinary in its mix of medieval and baroque architecture. The history of Mdina traces back more than 4000 years old and is one of Malta's earlier inhabited places. Lamp lit by night and referred to as 'the silent city', Mdina is fascinating to visit for its timeless atmosphere as well as its cultural and religious treasures. Impressive palaces inhabited by Maltese nobility line its narrow, shady streets. The town was the old capital of Malta, and with its narrow streets, few inhabitants and beautiful views over the Island it is truly a magical city.

Mdina is situated in the north west of the island of Malta. Particular highlights within Mdina include the Natural History Museum, the Carmelite Church, Palazzo Falzon, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Cathedral Museum, the Mdina Experience, Mdina Dungeons and the Banca Giuratale amongst other attractions. A variety of cafes, wine bars, restaurants and museums are within walking distance from the property.

Mdina is also within walking distance of the delightful town of Rabat which also boasts of many of its own attractions. St.Paul's Church, the Roman Villa, St. Paul's Catacombs and grotto are not to be missed! According to local tradition, this grotto is the place where St Paul resided after he was shipwrecked on the island of Malta.

Mdina is close to many sandy beaches. Gnejna bay, Golden Bay, Riviera can be reached within a short 10 minute drive. For those seeking the rural, quiet and calm Malta, Mdina and Rabat can be used as the starting point for some of the most interesting walks in the country-side on the island. One can visit nearby Dingli, Bahrija, Bingemma, Imtahleb, Kuncizzjoni, Lunzjata, Chadwick Lakes and Verdala Castle. These spots will surely offer a glimpse of rural Malta, far-removed from the urban life.

This property can be used as base to visit most sites in Malta such as Valletta, the 3 Cities, Marsaxlokk, Sliema, St. Julian's, Rabat, Hagar Qim and Mnajdra Temples amongst other attractions given the regular bus services that pass by Mdina.

Should you be travelled with children, we can guarantee that the trip will be enjoyable for them. Just outside Mdina is a playground and a large garden right underneath the city bastions. One can also opt for a traditional horse carriage ride (Karrozin) or a ride on the trackless 'train' that will take you around the Windy roads of Rabat and Mtarfa (another adjacent towns to Mdina). An audio visual display of the Mdina Experience or a visit to the Mdina dungeons can also offer a unique cultural experience.

Mdina and the surrounding areas also host some traditional Feasts and Festivals. These include:

The Feast of St. Joseph celebrated in March, Rabat.

Medieval Mdina celebrated in April, Mdina where The Silent City comes to life with a Medieval theme. Entrance fees for all museums and attractions in Mdina are reduced.

Easter Week: there is a Good Friday pageant celebrated in Rabat where Christ's passion and crucifixion are depicted by statues born aloft through the streets of Rabat.

The Feast of St. Peter and St. Paul celebrated on the 29th June in Mdina.

The Feast of St. Paul is also celebrated in July in Rabat.

With regards to parking - there is ample public parking right outside Mdina. You should park here, as it is illegal to park inside Mdina's city walls without a permit. We may be able to get you a permit and will do our best to do so, if you provide us with the information about your rental vehicle. In the unlikely possibility that we are still unable to get a local parking permit, you would have to park just outside Mdina, a mere 1 minute walk from the property.

Overall Malta is a stunning country to visit with a little bit of everything to offer. You won't regret your stay here and we guarantee your time spent in the Medieval gem that is Mdina will be a pleasurable one.

Environmental Contribution Payment - The Government of Malta has recently introduced a charge that is liable on all guests staying at all types of accommodation. All revenue generated from this initiative will be directed solely and exclusively to upgrade and embellish the local infrastructure in touristic areas around the Maltese Islands. The contribution is payable by all tourists/guests who are 18 years or older on the day of arrival. It amounts to €0.50c per person for each night spent at our accommodation. The contribution is capped at a maximum of €5 for each continuous stay. We are obliged to collect this contribution and then pass it onto the Government. An official and government-issued ‘Notice to Guests’ will be available at the property that further explains the environmental contribution and the reason for this charge.The exact sum due will be determined during your stay, and I once again apologise for the inconvenience.

House rules

Mdina is a quiet town, affectionately referred to as the Silent City.
Thus, our home is not the ideal location for large scale parties.

Additionally, please be reasonable in your usage of electricity and hot water.

Thus, we would very much appreciate cooperation in this regard from all future guests.

“A fab find in marvelous, magical Malta!!”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2016

Wow, this place was a fantastic place to stay. Situated in the beautiful walled city of Mdina opposite a beautiful cathedral in the main square. The bells were loud and frequent but soon slept through. The accommodation is lovely, comfortable, well equipped yet stylish and practical - we loved it. The owner was absolutely great, very friendly, great comms throughout the process. I would definitely stay here again, still smiling when I remember how we felt when we first saw the place - highly recommended.
