Make a holiday rental apartment of villa in Malta your home away from home

The Maltese Islands, Malta, Gozo and Comino, have been described as a huge open air museum, displaying 4,000 years of history, yet boasts a luxury, modern way of life. Every sense is invigorated on a Malta holiday, with the contrasting colours of the azure sea, yellow sandstone architecture and clear skies, the sounds of village bands and magnificent local cuisine.

Things to do on holiday in Malta

Unique historical sights adorn the island, with forts, temples, palaces and cathedrals portraying ancient cultures in a way that makes it hard to remember that life has changed in the intervening years. There are traces of Neolithic, Phoenician, Carthaginian, Roman and Byzantine traces dotted about the island.

Holiday accommodation in Malta is kept busy year round by the clear warm seas of the Mediterranean hosting some of the best scuba diving in Europe. There are diving sites on reefs, caves, wrecks and unique diving experiences available from a villa in Malta, with calm, warm seas creating the ideal for beginners or experiences divers to discover beautiful archaeological sites and WWII wrecks and Roman artefacts.

If you really need a break, taking a self catering apartment in Malta is the ideal place to unwind. If the glorious year round climate, stunning scenery, clear seas, fresh air and simple yet delicious fresh cuisine are not enough to allow to fully relax in a Malta holiday villa, there are over 40 health spas to aid you. The period from autumn until late spring is an ideal time to walk or cycle around the island too, then return to one of the world class health spas or the beach to rest.

If lazing on some of Malta’s magnificent beaches, visiting historical sites and enjoying the exquisite diving does not fill your entire Malta holiday, there is a huge, varied list of sporting activities to try from a private Malta accommodation. There are 18 hole golf courses, tennis courts, miniature golf, saunas, swimming pools, windsurfing, water skiing, sailing, horse riding, paragliding, wake boarding, cycling and water polo. There are many competitions too, including the Malta Marathon in February, regular regattas from April and November and horse racing every Sunday from October until May.

                              We could not fault the apartment. It was in a good location with lovely views of the bay. We hired a car but we didn,t really need one. Plenty of shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance. Living accommodation was spotless and had everything required for a lovely stress free holiday. Hope to return.

                              Wonderful stay at the penthouse. Added the car hire to our booking but only used it twice. The apartment had everything we needed and supermarket down stairs and just around the corner, no need to go far. We came for the sun and got it all day long on the balcony. Discovered around 8 or 9 restaurants only 10 minutes walk away. Over by the university, so everything we wanted was there. If you want to visit places around the island, you can get a bus to just about everywhere from the hospital, just across the road. Richard is always available on the phone to help with any problems or advice.

                              The villa, surroundings and Richard the owner were just perfect. We travelled with our two sons, one who is disabled with special needs. The boys absolutely loved the place, so much that we tried to rebook for August but unfortunately was not available. We hired a chef for a couple of nights, which was both reasonable and so well prepared( thank you jesmond). Just a small taxi journey into nearby sliema and you are amongst quaint marinas and bars and restaurants all overlooking the beautiful med. the pool was nice and warm and the villa itself was very spacious and fully air conditioned. We just can't wait to go back.
