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.

Weather in Malta

Malta’s magnificent year round climate is exceptional. Last minute holidays at any time of the year place you in the sun all year round. Average temperatures in January, the coldest month are still above 15?C, and summers are great, with temperatures in July and August routinely being in the high 30’s (?C).

Flights to Malta

Even last minute holidays to Malta properties, apartments or rental villas are easy to organise. Direct flights from the UK arrive into Malta Airport (MLA), and this genuine island paradise is just 3 hours from London. Reaching your self catering Malta accommodation has just become much cheaper too, as Ryanair have started offering cheap flights to Malta, and combined with the large range of budget accommodation in Malta, a magnificent holiday can be extremely good value.

Would stay again!

5 of 5
Our trip was perfect, mainly because we stayed at Sardinellla52. The house was very clean and well equipped. The location of the home was convenient. It was steps from the bus stop, a very short walk to the water taxi, not too far to the ferry to Valletta. We bought weekly bus and ferry tickets, which proved to be wise. From Sardinella52 you can get anywhere you want to go using public transportation. We even took a day trip to Gozo. We got the bus from Birgu and took it to the ferry terminal, then we rented a car to sightsee on Gozo, since we had just one day. We would suggest doing the same. We also suggest purchasing a Hertiage Malta Pass, which will get you into all the major attractions on Malta and Gozo. It was well worth it. On Tuesdays and Saturdays, there is an open air market in Birgu, where you can buy fresh vegetables, cheese, olives, etc. We highly recommend taking advantage of this. Tommy's Self Service is right underneath the property, and that was convenient for other things. The restaurant Ta' Petut was a great experience. We suggest making reservations. It's a short walk from the house. Ramon was very helpful in making our stay successful. He picked us up from the airport and also bought some almond milk, since I am gluten, dairy free, which was very thoughtful. On the way from the airport, he gave us a tour of Birgu, and showed us where to get the bus, ferry, etc. He arranged for a taxi for our return to the airport at the end of our stay, and was available by text for any questions we had. It was convenient to have a washing machine and WiFi in the house. The views from the rooftop were stunning. If you have looked at the pictures, you know there are two sets of spiral stairs, which are narrow, so take that into consideration when booking. We didn't have an issue with the stairs. They added to the charm of the home. The only suggestions I would make are the following: put a mirror in the walk in closet in the master bedroom, and add an electric drip coffee maker to the utility room on the top floor, along with mugs, because we would have liked to have our morning coffee on the roof top, but carrying mugs of hot coffee up the spiral stairs was a trick. Neither of these things impacted our stay at all. We would stay here again if we come back to Malta. The cleanliness, charm, and convenience of location made Sardinalla52 a lovely place to stay. We highly recommend.

Stayed one week in November in this lovely penthouse apartment. Owner Daniel and his father Joseph were very helpful. Weather was kind for the time of year. We are missing the fantastic view of the Grand Harbour already. We will definitely return.
