About Malta - listed as one of the top 10 islands in the world - (

History aficionados have long loved this Mediterranean nation, evidence that you don't need palm trees or daiquiris to be one of the world's most tantalizing islands. Malta has been overrun by every major empire in the region, from the Phoenicians to the Byzantines, the British to the 1.5 million tourists who flock to the island's colorful shores every year. Limestone cliffs are dotted with baroque churches, crumbling castle walls and fortresses.

The capital, Valletta, squeezes half a millennium of history into half a square mile, with forts and stairways that crest in unparalleled harbour views. With the debut of a new Renzo Piano-designed open-air theater, visitors can now marvel at the contrast of 21st and 16th century architecture. Nearby Gozo offers a reprieve from Valletta's frenetic energy -- it's here that Odysseus is rumored to have spent seven years after the Trojan War. Take one look at this handsome Bronze Age island, set between Sicily and the North African coast, and you won't blame him.

We had a great time at Il kiostrol .

We found the place ,which has so much charm, cachet and character ,exactly like the photos and the description given on the site.

Daniel 's warm welcome ,from the very minute we arrived ,made us feel perfectly at home and comfortable and there were Maltese snacks as well as a bottle of Maltese wine in store for us in the fridge.

Daniel's attention to every detail is quite extraordinary ,both inside and outside.

The beautiful balconies and terraces with so many varied plants and flowers were really lovely and enabled the four of us to freely choose the very best place to relax, sunbathe or read according to the time of the day and the temperature.

A great place and wonderful hosts . Thank you
