We had a very enjoyable stay in Malta. Shortlets team were always cheerful and always available if we had any questions about the accommodation or Malta. Steve recommended very nice restaurants where we went of course. The accommodation was spotless and ideal for my elderly parents. It is situated in a quiet area of Malta but only a short drive for Sliema and St Julians. We preferred to be in a quite area. We will definitely be returning.
We stayed in this villa beginning of October, and we would definitely recommend it.The host who did our check in at the villa was very friendly and eager to help whenever we needed. The villa itself is lovely, the outdoor space is perfect for the Maltese weather and we enjoyed relxing by the pool. The villa is walking distance from shops and from the bus stop to Valletta, which was very convenient. We will surely recommend Shortlets Malta and this villa to our family and friends.
Till a few years ago , St Julians was a quiet fishing village. Nowadays development has changed it completely and it spreads all round St. Georges Bay, Spinola Bay, and Balluta Bay.. Most of the elegant houses along the shore line have gone to be replaced by blocks of apartments, restaurants, bars , cafes and hotels. The roads leading to St Julians village (now a town) proper remain largely untouched. The best preserved are in the area of Balluta Bay. A few villas with beautiful facades and large gardens. One villa has been converted into a restaurant forming part of Le Meridien Hotel. There is also the large neo-gothic Carmelite Chuch in the midst of small houses that used to be summer residences for the rich Valletta residents. There is a large block of apartments built in the art nouveau style overlooking the square where you can sit and have a coffe or drink and watch the world go by.
Back in picturesque Spinola Bay there are still a number of old boat houses belonging to the fishermen that still remain with their traditional fishing boats sheltering in the bay. Some boat houses have been converted into restaurants which are quieter and romantic. The bay is particularly lovely in the evenings with the lights of the restaurants and street lighting reflecting in the calm water of the bay. On the other side of the bay is the promenade (very popular) which goes all the way to Sliema and beyond. Ideal for an evening stroll or to sit at a bar/cafe and people watch.
Up the hill you will find Portomaso - a private yacht marina with restaurants and bars, a shopping complex and apartments (all very upmarket) with a lovely atmosphere. Nearby is the Hilton. There are a number of 5* hotels - all overlooking the sea on the coast north of Paceville. There is also a Casino at the Dragonara and another at Portomaso .
