The pleasant door to this amazing house gives no hint as to what is within - lots of clean well furnished rooms, a large kitchen, a courtyard, garden with outdoor eating area, roof terraces galore, a swimming pool, comfortable bedrooms, all very private. It was the perfect house for our 3 generation family, providing plenty of space to either be together or spread out, with the added bonus that the two younger generations fit very nicely into the 4 bedrooms in the main house, while grandparents were able to sleep in peace and quiet in the tower. Would we recommend it to friends? Yes. Would we go there again? Definitely!
When you step out of the door you are in the middle of a Maltese town, so you are able to get some feeling for what life is like in Malta. There is a small grocer across the street. Everyone we met was very friendly and helpful.
This especially applies to the owner, Alex, who couldn't have been more helpful.
For families with small children - Pretty Beach at Birzebbuga is ideal. It doesn't entirely live up to its name, as it is close to the cranes of the Freeport, but it is clean, has white sand leading into a shallow sea, and the 2 to 7 year old younger members of our family made many sandcastles there. A short drive takes you to Marsaxlokk, with its many restaurants along the beach.
Malta is an excellent holiday destination - so much to see and do, and yet it is so small that you can get anywhere in a short time.
