Marsaxlokk house description

Period circa 100 year old Maltese 'townhouse' property full of charm and character features including stone flagstones and patterned tiles, wooden beams, stone walls and ceilings and stone staircases which has been tastefully modernised to high specifications to provide a comfortable home.

Characterful Maltese pieces adorn the property inside and out to provide a unique ambience.

Accommodation consists of sitting/living room complete with TV (cable service) and iPod docking station, study nook, combined kitchen and dining room complete with all utensils, toaster, kettle, coffee-grinder, crockery/cutlery/glassware and Siemens and Gaggenau built-in appliances (dishwasher, side-by-side fridge/freezer, double hung oven, microwave & 6-gas burner cooktop), full bathroom featuring antique bath set on stone claws, laundry (washing machine & dryer, iron & ironing board) and arched undercover area leading to garden abundant with citrus, olives, bird of paradise and sardinella on the ground floor.

A grand wrought iron and stone staircase takes you to the second floor, where you will find two generous sized bedrooms (1 double bed, 1 with 2 single beds) both with their own ensuites and private balcony/terrace, the main bedroom with stunning direct sea views and the second with views over the garden and surrounding countryside/village.

A stone spiral staircase from the second floor takes you to the roof area, where you can sit and view the uninterrupted sea and promenade views all the way along the stunning waterside quay.

Fantastic restaurants and cafe's are on your doorstep; you can order in a cappuccino and enjoy it in your own garden. Fishing and water activities are also on your doorstep as you are at the centre of the island's unique fishing village and can buy (or catch yourself) your lunch or dinner and cook it up yourself, or sample the 'catch of the day' at one of the village's renowned fish restaurants. Ramble through the streets, where fishermen tend their nets or stroll along the promenade and catch the local gossip, or meander through the markets and buy your souvenirs or local olives and fresh cheese as an appetiser.

              Car: Recommended

              Marsaxlokk Bay is Malta's second largest natural harbour and main fishing harbour. Boasting the best fish restaurants on the island - it is a foodies, ramblers & photographers paradise with 'Luzzus', the traditional eyed Maltese fishing boats reflecting their colours against the bay.

              The village's Sunday fish market a fascinating insight into local life and a traditional industry. The stalls brim with the night's catch - fish of all shapes, colours and sizes. During the week, the daily tourist market sells unique wares, while the fisherman quietly sit in the background, mending their nets and repairing their boats - and village elders sit along the seafront chatting, laughing & gossiping, while life wanders by.

              It is also the southern venue for the annual Tourism Authority's Fireworks Festival. With a long history Marsaxlokk's harbour has witnessed the arrival of the Phoenicians, Ottoman Turks and Napoleon's Army. Close-by are the prehistoric megalithic sites & museums: Ghar Dalam Cave, Tas-Silg, Hagar Qim, Mnajdra & Tarxien Temples and Hypogeum. Fort Delimara, on the west of the peninsula, was built by the British in 1881 to guard the entrance to the Bay.

              The Baroque style Parish church is the venue of a national pilgrimage annually on 8 May & celebrates its annual feast of Our Lady of Pompeii in early August, and like Christmas & Easter, the Church & streets are adorned to honour the procession's path. Many small chapels also dot the village & its surrounds.

              Fishing, swimming, snorkelling are all on your doorstep, offering both sandy and rocky inlets. The headland to the left of the Bay is Delimara Point. It has two attractive, secluded rocky inlets suitable for swimming: Peter's Pool; and the furthermost part of the headland. St Thomas Bay, Marsascala, Xrobb l-Ghagin Nature Park, Pretty Bay, Ghar Lapsi & Blue Grotto are a short distance away.
