Maltese Vacation Accommodations

Malta is a nation in the Mediterranean, a bit south of Sicily. It is a small archipelago, with the main islands being Malta and Gozo.  There are endless surprises here with so much to see and do—from the sundrenched Mediterranean beaches to coastal hiking paths with dramatic panoramic views of coves and caves, to fine Baroque architecture to Megalithic temples which predate the pyramids. You can follow in the footsteps of the knights of St John in the back cobbled pathways of Valletta and Mdina. For many years, Malta was a British colony, and almost everyone speaks English. I will post a full story about this extraordinary country full of rich history and a strong national character.

Sensational Senglea Townhouse ( through Airbnb Malta)

We are first time visitors to Malta. We loved the islands, and stayed in a wonderful place. Senglea is one of the “Three Cities” on fingers of land across the Grand Harbor from Valletta, the much more hectic capital city. Senglea House overlooks a marina filled with boats of all sizes, from small water taxis to mega yachts. In the penthouse apartment #4 there are windowed balconies along with a private rooftop terrace. There are amazing views from both areas. The apartment is spacious and beautifully decorated with a contemporary vibe. It is well stocked with all that is needed for a pleasant stay including access to a washing machine and (rare in Europe) a dryer! There is strong internet, comfortable bed, and television with Netflix and Amazon Prime. The building has an elevator, which was undergoing repair but the gracious hosts provided staff to help with our luggage. You can’t beat the location or the amazing harbor views. We are so glad we stayed here rather than in the more crowded and chaotic Valletta. Senglea too has good restaurants with sumptuous harbor views.
