About Norman Shaw

I am a professional man in the medical field and live in the Palazzo on the top floor with my partner.

Norman Shaw purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Norman Shaw chose Valletta

When I bought this property most of my friends and family insisted that I was mad as the palazzo was in a ruinous state- missing ceilings, no floors, decades of debris, pigeons etc...everywhere etc, now its been painstakingly restored to its original state. It is located very centrally in Valletta minutes away from everywhere...

What makes this apartment unique

Palazzo San Pawl is extremely well located right in the centre of Valletta within walking distance of all amenities. Whilst staying with us you will also have access to our wonderful roof top terrace which commands panoramic views of the Grand Harbour. The bus terminus is a 4 min walk with buses taking you all round the island. In fact there is hardly any need to hire a car.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5th January 2011 Pallazo San Pawl allowed us to stay in something truly magnificent and steeped in history. You have done a marvelous job in restoring it to its regal splendor and you are a most gracious host.



From the moment we walked through the front door we knew we had entered into something special. The courtyard was full of lovely plants that keep me enthralled and all of the special touches you have provided for your guest were just marvelous. The kitchen was very well equipped, the bathroom was wonderful, the bed comfortable, great internet connection, and top marks for information for where to go shopping. We did not want for anything during our stay. The roof terrace provided an amazing view of the Grand Harbor and the Three Cities thank you for sharing this with us. Again so much loving care has been spent on restoring this magnificent building. Sharon & Richard, La Fayette, California, USA

We stayed eight nights at this charming apartment. It is as cozy as portrayed by the photos and tastefully decorated. Instead of the ubiquitous IKEA type furnishings of most vacation rentals, this apartment was furnished with antiques and lovely artwork. The roof top terrace was filed with greenery and offered a great view of the Grand Harbor. Michael and Norman were thoughtful hosts. They provided us with bread, fruits, butter, jam, milk, wine and beer upon our arrival, which was really nice since grocery stores were not plentiful in Valletta. The apartment could not be better situated. The main street, the important sites, the bus station, the tourist information and the harbor were all just a few blocks away. All in all, the apartment contributed greatly to our enjoyable visit to Malta.

Map

Coast/Beach:

Valletta is on a peninsula, and one can actually swim of the rocks at the tip of Valletta. The nearest sandy beach would be golden bay/ghajn tuffieha - approx 20 mins by car or 40 mins by bus.

Travel:

Luqa airport is 10-15mins by car, hiring a car in Valletta is not essential as there is a central bus station which can transport you to nearly every spot on the island & public transport is very cheap.
