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.

The location is superb in a very pretty town, not 'touristy' so get a real feel for Malta. Weather was fabulous so were able to lounge by the pool and take advantage of the roof terrace the whole time we were there. Accommodation is superb! Clean and modern but set within a gorgeous traditional sandstone building with original features. Jesmar and Bernice are the perfect hosts. We were picked up at the airport and dropped off with lots of information, and we were able to contact them if we ever had a query. Would definitely return in the future and will be recommending this villa to friends and family.

We decided to try an apartment for our trip to Malta and we couldn't have been happier there. The apartment was in a perfect position with a small sheltered balcony which got the morning sun so ideal for sitting out and easing ourselves into the day. The apartment was huge with a large kitchen/dining and lounge area. The lounge had lovely comfortable seats which were very nice to come home to after a long day pounding the streets of Valetta. Connie's father met us on arrival at the apartment and showed us around. The apartment has everything you need and there was milk, bread, cheese and cold meat in the fridge which meant we didn't need to shop until the next day. Birgu itself is charming and everyone we met was friendly and helpful and we didn't have a bad meal anywhere. There was a definite feeling of "coming home" when we stepped off the Valetta ferry. I would definitely recommend staying here and think we will be hard pushed to find another apartment that ticks all the same boxes for our next jaunt. Thanks Connie for making it all so comfortable.
