About the property

A quirky little house on three floors linked by a curving staircase

Romantic holiday accommodation in a graceful period house within the walls of Valletta - a World Heritage City on the island of Malta. This 16th century holiday home has been carefully restored, keeping all its charming features.

Valletta G-House's location, close to the historic Fort St Elmo, is about the unadulterated experience of local way of life. This pioneering holiday home has been featured for its beauty in magazines and voted travel writer's choice by both the Guardian Travel Section and by Lonely Planet Guide.

Valletta G-House is on three floors (see plan on pictures) and has a spacious double bedroom (4.9m x 5.8m) with a traditional Maltese wooden balcony, a sitting/TV room (4.9m x 2.8m), a fully equipped kitchen/dining room (3.6m x 4.6m) and a shower/WC (4.5m x 0.9m).

Using the house as your base, discover the city built by the Knights of St John back in 1565, with its palaces, churches, restaurants, cafes and interesting little shops, all within walking distance.

• If you wish we pick you up at the airport at the start of your stay (€25).

• The house manager and a special welcome pack will greet you at arrival.

• Ideal for romantic escapes.

• 3 night minimum stay.

• Not suitable for children.

With its magnificent baroque architecture and floodlit bastions, numerous beautiful churches, palaces and lively people, Valletta is a delightful city. It’s slightly faded glory and its narrow side streets, its Grand Harbour will all remain imprinted in your memory long after your holiday in Malta. The Knights’ official name for the city was “Humilissima Civitas Vallettæ” (Most Humble) but the ruling houses of Europe rightly gave it its nickname “Superbissima” (Most Proud).
