  • A Truly 'Beau' Experience in the Marais

    "Now that I'm retired and able to enjoy month-long stays in Paris, there are aspects I look for when booking an apartment. For me, location is very important and since discovering the Marais, I always try to find an apartment in either the upper or lower section of this vibrant and exciting area of Paris. Everything I could have wanted - restaurants, grocery shopping, banking, wine shops, boulangerie etc. was within walking distance and for destinations farther away, the métro and several bus lines were nearby. I usually travel in winter when Paris can be rather grey and so I look for 'a room with a view' or at least one with large windows, which overlook the famed Paris roof tops. The apartment itself was very well appointed. The kitchen, although small was efficiently laid out and well-equipped. Had I wished, I could have prepared a small dinner party as there were sufficient numbers of matching dishes and glasses (which isn't always the case in apartment rentals). I managed quite well with the two-burner cook top and combination microwave/oven. The bathroom contained modern fixtures, a surprising amount of storage and was quite elegant for a small space. I would have no reservations about recommending Le Beaubuourg to a friend!"

  • Quintessential Tuscan getaway

    "Imagine waking up to the sun streaming into the beautiful windows from the sunflower field, and the sound of distant roosters crowing. (Or you can close the shutters and sleep in.) You walk into the cozy kitchen and make coffee in the Bialetti, then walk down to the pool, past the fragrant lavender in bloom, and jump in for a morning swim. Then comes breakfast on one of the terraces (fresh fruit from the orchard or Lucignano's weekly market; fresh bread, salami, and cheese from the local shops) followed by a leisurely look at one of the many guidebooks on Linda's shelves to see where you want to visit today: a monastery to hear Gregorian chants; your choice of nearby hot springs; the dramatic landscape of the Crete; a series of tiny hill towns along the winding roads; the cities of Siena, Arezzo, Cortona, or Florence. (The Prada outlet is also nearby...) Or you could just consult the long list of favorites that Linda has given you; most of the suggestions we tried were unforgettable. You can swim again when you get home in the afternoon, and read a while or just watch the ever-changing sky, and then have a nap by the pool while the green lizards sun themselves on the stones. After a nice hot shower, choose from the restaurants close by that Linda recommends, or cook yourself with vegetables and salad from the garden and/or meat from the amazing and knowledgeable butcher in town. A visit to a gelateria later is always a good idea too. We had a perfect vacation here with our kids and in-laws. Everywhere your eye falls is an exquisite view or flower or artwork, but nothing feels arranged or fussy. It's the quintessential Tuscan home, rustic yet comfortable, homey yet enchanted. The house and property have enough wonderful corners that you can always opt to be with the group or by yourself. We spent about as much time doing nothing as exploring the area, which is the wonderful heart of Tuscany. If you are a cyclist or a runner, you can turn right or left out the driveway and find miles of calm roads with amazing views. After two weeks we felt reborn."

Malta Travel Tips

Getting to Malta Vacation Rentals

Malta's international airport is located between the villages of Luga and Gudja on Malta Island. In terms of travel distance, the airport is a 10-kilometer drive from Valletta. To get to and from the airport you can make use of the efficient public bus transportation system. Taxis are also available for private transfers. The best way to get around the islands is by using the buses and ferries that make up the public transport system. The ferries connect the islands of Malta so you can go on day excursions and hop across to the other islands. One of the best ways to see the island's attractions is to hire a scooter or bicycle from one of the local tour operators.

Visitors to Malta Lodging

Malta is a popular European vacation destination because it offers a warm climate and is easily accessible. It is a destination for sun lovers and people who enjoy a wide variety of water sports. It is also a treasure trove for those with an interest in ancient history and culture.

Malta Travel Attractions

The surrounding warm Mediterranean seas provide many great water sport activities. For scuba diving enthusiasts, there are many excellent reefs and wrecks to explore. For almost all dive sites, you need a permit to dive so it's preferable to arrange your diving through a local dive charter company. Other popular water sports activities include sailing, snorkeling and Jet Skiing. If you want to explore the island's interior, take a horseback riding excursion that will take you to see ancient and historic sites. The Marsa Sports Club has an 18-hole golf course as well as tennis courts, squash courts, saunas and steam rooms. Many of the resorts have windsurfs and boats that you can hire.

Malta has a deep and detailed history, and many international conflicts have taken place here through the ages. Today, the island is a wonderful blend of varied cultures and traditions. The many local museums host interesting exhibits. Many of the museums and historic sites really bring the history to life. Every Sunday at the War Museum at Fort Elmo, the locals dress in period costumes and perform a military parade. At In Guardia and Alarme, you can see similar historical reenactments which are both interesting and entertaining. If you have an interest in archeology, then a must-see is The Museum of Archeology which has exhibits of artifacts that are believed to date back to pre-historic times. The entire island has recently been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of the many ancient ruins and historical sites. At St. Paul's and St. Agatha's churches, you can visit the ancient catacombs. The most impressive of the sites are the 7,000-year-old megalithic temples. The Ggantija Temple is believed to be the oldest freestanding temple in the world.

Seasons to Visit Malta

Malta is known for its many sunshine hours throughout the year. The peak travel season coincides with the European summer vacation time which is during July and August. Even though this is the hottest time of year in Malta, visitors can be seen out on the beaches enjoying the warm weather. The weather remains warm from May through October so if you want to avoid the crowds, you can travel earlier or later in season. As the season starts to turn, strong winds from North Africa which are known as the Sirocco winds tend to increase the temperatures and humidity levels, keeping the weather unusually warm. Most of the rainfall occurs during the winter months and the temperatures remain mild. This is generally the low travel season.
