About Christiane Morris
I lived in Malta until I was 11 - a most wonderful, 'golden' childhood spending most of my time either in or by the sea. I have always retained a very strong emotional tie to this quirky island and we bought our apartment in 2007 to spend time here with our family and friends.
Christiane Morris purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Christiane Morris chose Birgu
The location is just superb - as soon as I arrive, throw open the front doors and go onto the balcony, I can forget everything else. There is always something to watch in Grand Harbour - from superyachts and super-sized cruise ships to rowing boats and the local luzzu. Even a dolphin or two if you are lucky!
What makes this Apartment unique
The view - and the access to such a wide variety of places to eat and drink just on the doorstep. In the summer, we also love swimming in the sea just outside the apartment or crossing the creek and making our way round to the sandy bay at Rinella.

Lovely apartment in a stunning location.
Lovely spacious place to stay, views amazing and good restaurants within walking distance
Thank you Alison, so glad you enjoyed your stay.
First ever visit to Malta
The location was out of this world. Right on the harbour we sat on the balcony watching the huge liners come in and depart along with the little fishing boats. The ferry over to Valletta only cost 90 cents return including the lift as we are seniors. Public transport is so cheap you don't need to hire a car. The appartment is huge with everything you need . The taxi was arranged by the owner who kept in touch with you and gave you all the information you needed..It consisted of three double bedrooms two bathrooms and the lounge could have seated about 10 people. Would thoroughly recommend this property and we hope to come back in the future
Home away from home.
We truly enjoyed our stay at this lovely seaside apartment. It is conveniently located minutes away from the bus terminal in Birgu and the ferry terminal in Bormla. There are plenty of restaurants to sample in either direction and we found the locals to be very friendly and welcoming. The kitchen is well equipped and the beds were comfortable. If you are Americans, like we, just don’t forget your current adapters or you will need a visit to the shop in Birgu center.
We highly recommend staying here if you are considering a visit to the area!

Vittoriosa (originally known as Birgu) is one of The Three Cities, the collective description of the three historic fortified cities of Vittoriosa, Cospicua,and Senglea built by the Knights of St John who settled in Malta in 1530 after they were thrown out of their stronghold on Rhodes. They have a unique charm and character that distinguish them from all other towns in Malta.
Vittoriosa is full of 400 year old heritage buildings including the Inquisitor’s Palace and several Auberges of the Knights of St John. Other attractions include the Maritime Museum, the Malta at War Museum and the 1,750 year old beautiful church of St Lawrence.
Unesco World Heritage Site, Valletta is just a ten minute ferry across Grand Harbour - or 20 minutes on the local buses. The capital of Malta is one of the rare urban inhabited sites that has preserved in near entirety its original features. It is inextricably linked to the history of the military and charitable Order of St John of Jerusalem. It was ruled successively by the Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs and the Order of the Knights of St John. The city has undergone no important modifications since 1798, the date when it was abandoned by the Knights of St John.
Grand Harbour Marina is a very popular destination with many good restaurants and wine bars and is just 100 metres from the apartment. With its superyachts and boats, it's also a perfect spot for sailing enthusiasts.
