---------------------------------------------------------

Full description

The space

This lovely recently renovated fully independent one-bedroomed apartment probably formed part of a palace built around 300 years ago by the knights of malta.

Designed with style, the apartment has been carefully restored and is decorated with art pieces bought by the owners during their travels.

This charming home set on the first floor (no lift) features very high ceilings with exposed stonework and beams and is embellished with two delightful and bright maltese balconies (private closed balconies) where you can read the papers in natural light or enjoy your morning coffee or evening wine, whilst watching passers-by unnoticed.

The apartment has a kitchen-living-dining room, a separate double bedroom and an independent bathroom with shower. In the living room, there is also a double sofa bed (more suitable for children) which means that the apartment may accommodate 2 additional guests. On request, a baby cot may be provided.


Amenities

The kitchen is equipped with a fridge-freezer, electric hob, microwave, toaster, coffee machine, electric kettle, pots, pans and kitchen utensils. The apartment has satellite tv, wi-fi, a dvd player, a washing machine, air conditioning, fans and a heater.

Clean linen and towels will be provided.

On request, we may provide you with beach towels at no extra charge.


The neighbourhood

This is one of the best neighbourhoods in valletta. It is very quiet, charming and photogenic. Scenes for films such as 'munich' (spielberg) and 'a different loyalty' (starring rupert everett and sharon stone) have been shot here. The quaint narrow streets, charming stepped streets and impressive bastions make this neighbourhood magical.

Location

You're in one of the most picturesque and historical streets of valletta and on foot you're:
- 1 min away from the superb view of the grand harbour from st. Barbara's bastions and the upper barrakka gardens;
- 2 mins away from the main shopping street and the unique st. John's co-cathedral;
- 3 mins away from renzo piano's city gate project and open air theatre (old opera house site);
- 5 mins away from malta's central bus terminus;
- 10 mins away from valletta's rocky beaches;
- 10 mins away from the sea-taxis to the three cities and the ferry to sliema.

Since you're in the historical centre of this 'city built by gentlemen for gentlemen', you are surrounded by restaurants, cafés, bars, wine bars, museums, theaters, historical palaces and monuments, auberges, churches, forts, etc.

Walking around valletta, which is one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world, you'll notice something interesting at every corner, be it the maltese balconies, statues, niches, coat of arms, inscriptions, fountains, red british telephone boxes or vintage shop signs. Valletta (a unesco world heritage city) is truly an open-air museum.

Malta boasts a diverse repertoire of exhibitions, festivals and feasts. Most of these events take place in valletta (or la valette,) a magnificent fortress city built by the knights of malta and named after the respected grand master of the order of st. John, jean parisot de la valette. Events taking place in valletta (citta' umilissima) include the valletta baroque festival, notte bianca, malta jazz festival, bridge bar jazz sessions, valletta international visual arts festival, valletta international piano festival, malta fireworks festival, malta arts festival, science in the city, middle sea race, various wine festivals, various 'festas' (honouring the parish patron saint) and carnival. The atmosphere is also special during christmas and easter time.

Getting around

The apartment is 5 mins away from malta's central bus terminus. From there you can visit every corner of the island by bus.
