Lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very spacious and well equipped with a beautiful view of the harbour. We had a front row seat for the firework display from the balcony. The people of Birgu are so friendly and helpful. We found many little shops tuck away in the village and of course great places to eat and drink. It was very hot during the first week of September when we were there which was above average so we were very glad of the air con. We went across to Valetta one day in the little water taxi which was fun and on our return late one evening the boatman dropped us off as near to our apartment as he could. We have every intention of returning again some day and will recommend it to our friends.

Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very comfortable for 5 adults. Great views, excellent location. The owner's father, Francis, was very helpful upon our arrival. Very much appreciated all the goodies left for our morning breakfast. Market is nearby as are several restaurants in Birgu Center. The ferry is also close as is the bus stop. Great little private swimming area. A wonderful experience. thank you Connie and Ralph.

Perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

We are four friends who holiday for a few days each year and normally stay in hotels. We decided to try an apartment for our trip to Malta and we couldn't have been happier there. The apartment was in a perfect position with a small sheltered balcony which got the morning sun so ideal for sitting out and easing ourselves into the day. The apartment was huge with a large kitchen/dining and lounge area. The lounge had lovely comfortable seats which were very nice to come home to after a long day pounding the streets of Valetta. Connie's father met us on arrival at the apartment and showed us around. The apartment has everything you need and there was milk, bread, cheese and cold meat in the fridge which meant we didn't need to shop until the next day. Birgu itself is charming and everyone we met was friendly and helpful and we didn't have a bad meal anywhere. There was a definite feeling of "coming home" when we stepped off the Valetta ferry. I would definitely recommend staying here and think we will be hard pushed to find another apartment that ticks all the same boxes for our next jaunt. Thanks Connie for making it all so comfortable.

Car: not necessary

The apartment is located immediately on the waterfront in Vittoriosa (Birgu). Vittoriosa forms part of the historical 'Three Cities'. It is the location of many historical buildings dating from the period of the Knights of St. John. The apartment is located practically next door to the famous Fortress St. Angelo situated on the promontery and next door to the magnificant Cottonera Marina lined with beautiful (super)yachts and many facilities such as quality restaurants and wine bars. Within the ancient streets of this town one can find all necessary amenities such as grocer, bakery, bank , pharmacy etc. At the water's edge within 200 metes from the apartment you can take a very pleasant boat trip in a traditional Maltese boat to the capital Valetta on the otherside of Grand Harbour or to Sliema. One can also agree with the ferryman to collect you at a fixed time! A water-bus to Valletta is also available a few meters further on. This location offers a mix of history, luxury and an authentic Maltese environment. Moreover one can enjoy a dip in the lovely Mediterranean immediately in front of the apartment. A parking space is reserved for you in the underlying garage.
