Senglea apartment description

The apartment not only has stunning views of Grand Harbout but is also just a short stroll away from the Grand Harbour Marina with its ocean-going super yachts, restaurants, wine bars, casino and the Maritime Museum; the 12th Century Fort St Angelo; and Birgu, the home city of the Knights of St John from 1530.

As a fully equipped, three bedroom home, the apartment offers a high standard of contemporary, stylish accommodation for holidaymakers seeking a quiet, relaxing holiday on the doorstep of one of Malta’s oldest, most beautiful and historic cities.

There is a large, open plan kitchen, dining area and sitting room that opens out onto a sea-facing stone balcony with table and chairs.

The large master bedroom with 6ft bed has an en suite shower room. The second bedroom has a king size bed and shares a large family bathroom with the third bedroom which has twin beds and a door to the internal courtyard. All bedrooms have air-conditioning.


More info about the apartment and cleaning: The apartment is fully furnished as a family home rather than a holiday let. Its contemporary style with design classics such as a Le Corbusier chaise longue, Mies Van Der Rohe Barcelona chair and Noguchi coffee table is complemented with an eclectic mix of colourful pictures, rugs and collectibles to provide a vibrant yet relaxing environment.

If you would like our cleaner to clean the apartment during your stay, you can request her to do this and pay her directly.

Airport pick up and key collection: Unless you wish to make your own way from the airport, we will arrange for you to be picked up from the airport (6km from apartment) by our preferred taxi company who will also give you the keys to the apartment.

If you wish to hire a car, you can park it in a secure parking space in the outdoor car park adjacent to St Angelo Mansions.

In the apartment, you will find an information pack containing further details about the apartment, Vittoriosa, Maltese tourist attractions, maps and bus timetables.

Fancy a two centre holiday?: If you are a cyclist or walker you may wish to consider a 'two centre' holiday in Malta. Our other property in Qrendi - 800366 - is in the perfect location for both activities being off the beaten track with lots of rural lanes, gnarly hills and coastal promenades. If you could like to split your time between our seafront apartment and traditional 19th century house in Qrendi, please check availability and drop us an email.

                      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 water taxi ride 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.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: 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 with a view to retiring here. We started renting it out in 2009 and were so successful that we increasingly found that we had nowhere to say when we came out for a visit. So we bought a further holiday rental in 2010 in Qrendi.

                      Why the Owner Chose Senglea:
                      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!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      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.
