In the summer, you can go swimming in the sea just outside the apartment or crossing the creek and making your way round to the sandy bay at Rinella.

The apartment not only has stunning views of Grand Harbour but is also just a short stroll away from the Grand Harbour Marina with its ocean-going super yachts, restaurants, wine bars, casino and the Maritime Museum; the 12th Century Fort St Angelo; and Birgu, the home city of the Knights of St John from 1530.

A stroll of five to seven minutes takes you into the historic city of Vittoriosa (Birgu), where there are local provisions shops, and a bakery which is a living museum of a kind. A similar stroll along the marina waterfront delivers you to a parade of wonderful restaurants open for both lunch and dinner. Diving is a possibility and can be arranged with local diving teachers. Local boats can transport you to Sliema and to Valletta, or alternatively the buses are close by.

The Island of Malta region

Within seconds of waking, you can step from the apartment and into a blissful, safe sea, in the midst of magnificence and majesty, for you are in the heart of the earliest settlement of Malta, which became the first Maltese city of the Knights of St. John, and later the British Naval Headquarters for the Mediterranean for 150 years.

The Hypogeum, a world heritage site, is accessible by direct bus from the village of Vittoriosa as are the Tarxien Temples close by to the Hypogeum. DO BOOK your ticket(s) for THE HYPOGEUM on the internet before you leave home as tours do get booked well in advance. Go to: www.heritagemalta.org/hypogeum.html

The area is particularly popular with local fishermen. For those who love to fish, your meditative companions are more than likely to be Maltese. An inviting outcrop of rock immediately below the apartment is ideal for you to fish from. In addition the marina is popular with locals too.

Birgu (Vittoriosa)

Vittoriosa is one of the towns designated 'city' by the Knights of St. John. The atmosphere is steeped in history and intrigue. A profound sense of silence and peacefulness embraces you as you saunter through the streets of ancient houses and dwelling places. The church of St. Lawrenz dominates. Vittoriosa has been a popular film location and some of the buildings have featured time and again in films that you may well have seen. The Count of Monte Christo, Gladiator, and Troy were in part filmed within the Three Cities.

An international marina now plays host to an increasing number of super yachts from all over the world that come to berth for days at a time. Cruise liners gracefully glide into the Grand Harbour of Valletta, and these you can watch from the balcony of the apartment. Life on the sea is constantly rolling by. Always a quiet dignity prevails, and you can truly 'just be'.

The Maritime Museum is along the waterfront, and several small museums within the city walls. The Inquisitor's Palace is close by. From Vittoriosa square you have access to a swathe of exceptional restaurants with inspiring marina views: 'Sottovento', 'Manchurian', 'Tate' and 'Two and a Half Lemon' to entice you. There's also 'Twist', an ice cream bar here too. 'Cantina', and 'Del Borgo' are wine bars with food options ... all within easy walking distance of the apartment.

Location description from owner

The Island of Malta region

The Maltese archipelago includes the islands of Malta, Gozo, Comino, Comminotto and Filfla.

It has a history of colonial control spanning centuries.

Located south of the Italian island of Sicily between Europe and North Africa, it has been occupied by Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs and latterly France and Britain.

Independence from Britain was achieved in 1964, after the Maltese people were awarded the George Cross for defending the island during the Second World War.

Over the centuries, Malta's strategic position fostered its development as an important trading post and it remains a leading centre for container and freight transhipment.

Malta is a popular holiday destination and tourism is the nation's main source of income.

“Great location, clean and tons of room”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2015

It is a wonderful flat, literally feet from great diving into the harbour. Make sure your hire car has a sat nav, because the directions from the airport are complicated (in the absence of consistent signs) even though the journey should only take ten minutes. After a 24-hour journey from Singapore via Paris to Malta, and without a sat nav, it took us close to an hour and a half... Great bar/restaurant and fresh bread in the mornings in the village of Kalkara.
