This enchanting villa oozes character from every stone. Surprising it dates back to the knights of St John where it formed part of the bastions, later on it served as a laboratory Barrack during World War 2 for the English Navy. Although large, it stands inconspicuously tucked away on the foreshore of Valletta Bastions.
Over the past months, it underwent a transformation into a comfortable, stylish and yet modern, holiday home without compromising its authenticity. Indeed, it is a house full of interesting features that whisper of the past wherever you look. One can only wonder at the many lives and events that must have unfolded here over the centuries, however, attention was kept in preserving the historic aspect. The marbled front doorway enters into an open sky-lit hall with arched openings leading to 3 entrances on each side and the front. The stairs makes the house so dramatic being partially preserved to its original state since most of it had to be replaced due to sea deterioration. Moreover, most of the walls have been left in their original form and texture, the typical Maltese limestone.
Immediately to the right, the arched doorway opens onto the kitchen/dining room. This lovely room is traversed by the typical wooden beams. The large bay windows open and light up the room. They offer a unique view of the stunning harbour and Sliema shore. The kitchen is fully equipped for easy cooking and for any kind of meal.
The dining area leads to the living area where the neutral coloured sofas and armchairs complement the honey coloured stone as does the modern parquet flooring which is a recent addition. Furthermore the entertainment area leads to 3 bedrooms, two on the same level and the 3rd one on the 1st floor accessible by a wooden staircase.
On the ground floor there are 2-bedrooms one with a double bed with en-suite with a bath tub and the other with 3 single beds. Also on the same floor there is another bathroom with shower closure as well. On the 1st floor then there is another double bed with another single bed so it can sleep 3 people comfortably in beds.
Also this bedroom comes with another en-suite with a shower cubicle. The low stone arches are visible in this bedroom and once again indicate its great age.Moreover on the other side of the main entrance there is another bedroom with a double bed and even more another en-suite with a shower cubicle. On the other side of the entrance there is the iconic part of this one of a kind villa...the outdoor area. The area consists of a stunning pool measuring 6m by 4m surrounded by decking also on its side there is a Jacuzzi measuring of 2m by 2m. Moreover, there is an outdoor table with chairs for 8 people and a gas bbq for fresco nights to enjoy and relax the great views and sea breeze.

The Island of Malta region
Valletta is the capital of Malta, colloquially known as Il-Belt (English: The City) in Maltese. It is located in the central-eastern portion of the island of Malta. Valletta is the second southernmost capital of the EU member states after Nicosia.
Valletta contains buildings from the 16th century onwards, built during the rule of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, also known as Knights Hospitaller. The city is essentially Baroque in character, with elements of Mannerist, Neo-Classical and Modern architecture in selected areas, though World War II left major scars on the city. The City of Valletta was officially recognised as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980.
The city was named after Jean Parisot de Valette, who succeeded in defending the island from an Ottoman invasion in 1565. The official name given by the Order of Saint John was Humilissima Civitas Valletta — The Most Humble City of Valletta, or Città Umilissima in Italian. The bastions, curtains and ravelins along with the beauty of its Baroque palaces, gardens and churches, led the ruling houses of Europe to give the city its nickname Superbissima — Most Proud
Founded in 1565 by the Order of St John as a refuge for soldiers returning from the Crusades, Valletta is now the capital of Malta and a piece of living history. With an unsurpassed collection of original Baroque architecture, fortified city walls overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, and the spectacular Co-Cathedral of St John, which features intricately carved stone vaults and a famed painting by Caravaggio, it is no wonder that this smallest of European capital cities is a world heritage site.
