However, the rest of Malta is also well worth exploring and can be reached easily from Valletta either by car or by bus (the main bus station is in Valletta).
We will meet you in person at the property on arrival and show you around the apartment.
You will also receive a welcome pack with key information on local facilities and a hamper with essentials like water/bread/milk and some local snacks.
Further details indoors
It is not only the view that makes The Admiral's Suite unique. Although recently converted, historic features have been maintained and the house boasts luxuriously high ceilings supported by long wooden beams and traditional painted tile floors. Being on the water's edge the house also enjoys a pleasant Mediterranean breeze.The apartment is kitted out with all the mod cons, but great care has been taken to preserve the character of 51 Battery Street. The furniture has all been carefully sourced from markets and antique shops across the islands and is traditional and in keeping with this historic townhouse.The bathroom is classically decorated with marble floors and the kitchen is well equipped and overlooks the quiet and picturesque steps of Battery street.
Further details outdoors
The entrance to the property is on the quiet steps of Battery street, which lead from St Anthony's bastions on the edge of the Grand Harbour to the Upper Barraka Gardens and Auberge de Castille (now office of the Prime Minister).If you are using a car, public parking is readily available outside the property on St Anthony's bastions and it is usually very easy to find a parking slot. If you are using the public bus service, Malta's central bus station is just outside the main gate to Valletta, a five minute walk from the house.
Location description from owner
The Island of Malta region
Malta is a small Mediterranean island strategically located between Sicily and North Africa. The climate is typically Mediterranean with long hot summers and relatively dry cool winters. The warm months are from April to October with July and August being the hottest (temperatures can reach 40 degrees). Winter can also be a good time to explore the islands with less tourists and a good chance of great weather- temperatures rarely fall below 10-15 degrees during the day.Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Spanish, the Knights of St John, France under Napoleon and most recently the British have all occupied Malta. Each coloniser has left his mark on the language, culture and architecture of this unique island. This together with Malta's pleasant climate make Malta a fascinating and enjoyable holiday destination. Valletta is a monument to the crusading, chivalric and aristocratic order of St John and there are many other attraction within easy reach of the capital, either by car or by bus. Across the harbour from Valletta are the three cities, each a self contained walled town on its own peninsula. The yacht marina on the Cottonera waterfront in one of the creeks can be seen from the apartment. It makes a lovely walk with its bars and cafe's lining the harbour.Mdina, an ancient walled citadel further inland was originally built by the Romans and occupied by the Arabs and Normans. It remains the seat of the Maltese nobility and is know as the silent city after its large Palaces with narrow winding streets which are in stark contrast to the wide planned baroque layout of Valletta. The Cathedral in Mdina is a baroque masterpiece and is well worth visiting.In Attard, at the centre of the island you can explore Grand Master de Paule's summer palace. Built in the 17th century, San Anton was subsequently the British Governor's Palace and is now the residence of the President of Malta. With its wonderful formal gardens, well tended orange groves and cool baroque fountains this Palace should be on the top of your list of places to visit. If you are interested in local craft, a trip to San Anton can be tied in with a visit to Ceramika Maltija (Malta's oldest Pottery) in the old stables of the magical Villa Bologna. Ceramika Maltija is a hidden treasure as yet unspoiled by commercialism where local craftsmen turn out unique pieces of Maltese pottery. The pottery is on St Anthony Street and can be accessed through the back entrance of San Anton Palace.The tourist office likes to describe Gozo as the Mediterranean's best kept secret. This might not be entirely true but Gozo is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of Malta and the pace of life is certainly slower and more relaxed on Malta's smaller sister island. The citadel in Gozo where locals once sought refuge from plundering Ottoman corsairs is in the centre of the island should is a perfect lunch stop. Try out Ricardo's restaurant where local specialities like Gbejniet (goats cheese) and rabbit are served in an old town house.Gozo is also home to Ramla beach. Ramla is the largest sandy beach in Malta and Gozo. Its red sand and shallow turquoise water make it a favourite with locals and tourists alike.Malta is also great for swimming and you will definitely need a dip if you visit in July or August. The best sandy beaches are in the north of the island (on the way to Gozo). Gnejna, Ghajn Tuffieha, Golden Sands and Mellieha are all lovely. The best rocks to swim off are Peter's Pool in the South of the Island or the Blue Grotto but there are plenty of other places equally nice but perhaps more difficult to find. Its worth carrying a map around with you!
Valletta is the World Heritage City capital of Malta. It is a baroque masterpiece and was built in the 16th century by the crusading order of St John. The city is named after La Vallette, the Grand Master of the order who commissioned the building of this fortified city following the victory of the Knights of St John over their Ottoman adversaries in the Great Siege of 1565. The Cathedral of St John's with Caravaggio's world famous masterpiece, the old Palace of the Grand Master with its armoury and tapestries and the cultural centre in St John's Cavalier are all on your doorstep and well worth visiting.

“A mesmerising view, great access to Valletta and wider Malta.”
The amazing view of the Grand Harbour was mesmerising. A very comfortable well appointed apartment which allowed us to explore Valletta in small chunks whilst visiting further afield by accessing the nearby buses. Plenty of places to eat out; markets and small shops to buy fresh food, all good value. Our friendly hosts were helpful before the visit and there to welcome us to the apartment.
