Description from owner

Visit our website vallettaflats. com

The house is located on Battery street, within the baroque walled city of Valletta. Perched on St Anthony's bastion, the house commands spectacular views over the Grand Harbour. The key, since time immemorial, to Malta's strategic importance, this harbour was made famous once again during the second world war when it was home to the British Empire's Mediterranean fleet. Though on the water's edge, Battery street is also a stone's throw from the main historical attractions within this World Heritage city.

The historic capital city of Valletta is a cultural gem packed with baroque churches, museums, auberges and other architectural masterpieces. Built by the Grand Master La Vallette following his victory over the Ottomans in the Great Siege of 1565, this city is a monument to the splendour of a bygone age when the aristocratic order of the Knights of St John ruled the island of Malta.

Valletta is alive with bars, restaurants and cafe's and there

Valletta is alive with bars, restaurants and cafe's and there is enough culture to keep the keenest vulture occupied for several holidays. 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). The island is small and nowhere is more than a 20 minute drive from Valletta. So you have finished exploring the walled cities of Valletta and Mdina, the prehistoric sites of Hagar Qim and Mnajdra and the numerous baroque churches, there are plenty of rocky and sandy beaches to cool off at within easy reach.

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

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.

“Very comfortable, well equipped, and beautifully located apartment”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2015

Apartment is full of character, with superb views across the Grand Harbour to the historic Three Cities area. It is in the perfect position to explore Valletta, being within a few minutes walk of Republic Street as well as the other sites, such as the Saluting Battery and the Upper Barrakka Gardens. Jasper and Fleur proved to be excellent hosts, being both welcoming and very helpful during our stay. We would certainly look to come back in the future.

“Brilliant as always”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2015

We'd stayed here in 2014, and were very pleased to get a booking over the Easter weekend this time. The view is stunning, the owners were amazingly helpful, providing a camp bed for an extra person, and generally making our stay work just as well as last time. Strongly recommended.

“Best view in Valetta”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2012

The apartment is at the top of the building which is quite a hike up but it is really worth it. The balcony is narrow of necessity but runs across the living room and bedroom and accommodates the small table and two chairs with ease. The view has to be among the best in Valetta. You look straight across the Grand Harbour to Fort St. Angelo. All the traffic to the port passes below your balcony, including the huge cruise liners. At night we sat for hours on the balcony watching the goings on in the Grand Harbour and looking across at the lights of the Three Cities opposite. Parking was no problem because our car was already there from the night before so the morning scramble by workers for parking spots didn't affect us. The location is very convenient. A short walk up Battery Street and right into Melita Street leads you across the major streets to Republic Street, Valetta's main thoroughfare, in about 10 mins. Wembley Stores at the top of Republic St is ideal for your basic grocery needs. Caravaggio's with its maroon umbrellas in front of St John's Cathedral is ideal for morning coffee, lunch or dinner. Straight up Battery St leads you to the Upper Barraka Gardens, delightful at any time of the day and especially at night. If you don't want to hire a car, the main bus terminus is about 15 mins away. The fares are unbelievably cheap and the buses comfortable and punctual. You couldn't choose a better apartment.
