              A brilliant appartment in an unbeatable location.

              We chose Birgu as our holiday location as it seemed quieter and more relaxing than one of the resorts, and we were attracted to the apartment based on the photo of the window view. I can honestly say we were not disappointed. The apartment had everything we needed, it was clean, quiet and the views were spectacular. This was the ideal base for us as it is easy to get around Malta using the water taxi to Valletta and the buses. The shop close to the apartment stocked everything we needed and there are plenty of places to eat close by. The owner was very helpful and provided our airport transfers which was really appreciated. We intend booking this accommodation next year and would recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday in a great location.

              Four days in Sunny Malta

              4 of 5
              We really enjoyed our stay in Malta , we thought we would have found a landscape different from that we found and we were pleasantly surprised to find such a beautiful and historical atmosphere throughtout the island! The apartment we rented is very large and very well equipped , it is settled in the perfect place : breathtaking view of the opposite cliffs , peaceful surrounding at a stone thrown from the best sight , cafes and restaurant in the islands :we really much liked " Two and half lemon" and " Dom Berto" , two stylish and very cool restaurants in front of the beautiful marina ...would come back soon ! Thank you Connie and mum
