Situated slightly inland from the southern coast of the magnificent island of Malta is the historical village of Zejtun. A Zejtun holiday is the perfect option for those travellers who wish to catch a glimpse of the traditional Maltese way of life whilst being central enough to appreciate all of the attractions and sights that the island has to offer. What’s more, a Zejtun holiday rental villa will offer memorable views of the countryside as well as providing travellers with all the essential amenities needed for a comfortable stay.
A Zejtun holiday is most likely to appeal to those travellers who really want to experience traditional Maltese life without the tourists getting in the way. As one of the oldest villages to be found on the island, visitors to the village can expect to be able to soak up culture and stunning views in uninterrupted serenity. There are very few activities available within the village itself but pursuits such as swimming, cycling, walking, diving, horse riding, tennis, golf, sailing and surfing are widely available in the surrounding area.
No visit to Malta would be complete without exploring some other areas of the island and one place that should definitely be on your itinerary is the town of Marsaskala. The town is a fascinating place with many remnants of history to be seen, especially the mysterious cart-ruts in the rock which disappear into the sea! There are several fortified buildings still standing in Marsaskala such as the St. Thomas Tower which was built by the Knights of Malta in 1614. The walls of the tower building are over 16 feet thick and the building can only be accessed by way of an impressive drawbridge.
One of the most important factors of booking a holiday is the quality of the weather and a Zejtun holiday is no exception. Thankfully travellers who are interested in a Zejtun holiday will discover that the island of Malta has a typical Mediterranean climate with daytime temperatures reaching as much as 32 degrees Celsius during the summer months. The cooler months of the year are still pleasant with a maximum of 16 degrees Celsius to be expected. The average annual rainfall amount for the town is 15 inches.
Travellers on a fantastic Zejtun holiday will begin their adventure by arriving at Malta International Airport (MLA) which is less than 4 miles away from the town.
