Solmar Apartments comprises a two 2 bedroom apartment designed to accommodate 4 adults / children with a spectacular view over Marsascala’s characteristic fishing port and the open sea beyond.
Centrally located and set just back from the harbour front on a quiet non-thoroughfare street, the apartment offers calm and will allow you to enjoy Marsascala’s seaside location and its traditional relaxed social life-style making for a fascinating holiday for the whole family.
A butcher, baker, mini supermarkets, local fishermen (for the early riser) and fresh vegetable stalls are all within a stone’s throw, meaning that a car is not needed for everyday necessities. The bus terminus is five minutes away on foot, with comfortable air conditioned buses linking you regularly to the whole island and notably colourful Valetta, the historical 3 Cities and the airport.
The apartment is brand new and has been finished to a high standard combining simple elegance and practical functionality that includes efficient and silent invertor technology AC units in each room that can also be used for heating in the colder months.
It is extremely light and airy and comprises an open plan kitchen / dining / sitting room area, two bedrooms and two bathrooms equipped with generously dimensioned showers (each master bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom). The beds in each bedroom can be arranged as either a large king-sized double bed or separate 90 cm x 2 meter twin beds. The apartment’s master bedroom is large enough to add an extra child’s bed or cot if required. The orthopaedic mattresses are comfortable and duvets, bed linen and towels are all supplied. A hair dryer is also provided in each apartment.
The kitchen has been thought out so that it will be a pleasure should you prefer to stay in and dine al-fresco on the terrace admiring the evening view over the harbour. The all-electric kitchen is equipped with oven, microwave, induction hob, hood, toaster and kettle and of course a dishwasher to make you feel at home. In addition, each apartment has a clothes washing machine, clothes dryer, iron and ironing board.
There is free internet / wifi as well as an Android box in each apartment so that you can pick up many of your favourite channels.
A children’s play park with an impressive range of activities for various ages can be reached within 10 minutes on foot.
A number of watersports such as scuba diving, sailing, fishing are all to be found in the region.
For those interested in history, Valetta, the 3 Cities and the megalithic temples of Tarxien are all within 10 – 20 minutes by car.
A very pleasant and wide promenade running along the waterfront around the bay with its numerous restaurants and bars is particularly agreeable for an evening stroll. Along the way you will come across designated cordoned-off bathing areas with direct access from the rocks via short ladders. The water is crystal clear and its temperature is most welcoming from late Spring through to late Autumn. Nearby, St Thomas’ Bay with its sandy beach can be reached by a 5 minute bus ride.
The one thing you will be short of is time to sample everything on offer.
The airport is less than 20 minutes away by taxi and the hosts will happily organise an airport pick up or car hire upon request.
Although the apartment bock does not have its own parking, being on a quiet and non-thoroughfare street means that it is usually very easy to find a place to park close to the apartment.
It should be noted that the apartment being on the 2nd floor without a lift is not suitable for persons with reduced mobility. This being said, the stairways are wide and very easy to climb.
We speak English, French, Italian and (some) German. It will be a pleasure to welcome you for a memorable holiday in our apartment.
