Très agréable séjour

  • 5 of 5

Fin mars 2016 nous avons séjourné en famille pendant 8 jours dans cette maison accueillante et confortable à Zurrieq. La proximité de l’aéroport est un atout pour une arrivée et un départ facile. Aucun bruit d’avion, la piste étant orientée ailleurs. La maison est située dans une petite rue proche de l’église avec plusieurs petits commerces à proximité. De la maison on peut se rendre facilement partout à Malte en 1/2H – 1H.

Pour garer la voiture utiliser les places matérialisées par des bandes blanches (gratuites et illimitées) place de l’église ou dans les rues parallèles à 5 mn à pied (quand les trois places à 10 m de la maison sont occupées).

La maison très agréable est conforme en tous points aux photos et à sa description.

Birgit nous attendait à notre arrivée et nous a conseillé sur les endroits intéressants à visiter car en 8 jours il faut faire des choix tant Malte est riche de sa nature et de ses monuments.

Notre confiance lui étant acquise, nous contacterons Birgit lors d’un prochain séjour à Malte ou Gozo maintenant que nous avons appris à conduire à gauche !

The real Malta !

  • 5 of 5

The property is well located near the church and main square. It is an original Maltese Townhouse, with the original floor tiles and the yard. The house is very clean and tidy with all the necessary facilities for a homely stay and holiday. The roof has a washroom with a washing machine which is really useful. Parking was never a problem as we always managed to park just a bit further down in the street although you are also close to the public transport facilities if you do not rent a car. Birgit and Anson are always contactable should you need their advice or have any problems. We will be returning next year. Thank you.
