The Island of Malta: Megaliths, medieval dungeons and Calypso's Cave – The Maltese Islands are positively mythic. The narrow meandering streets of their towns and villages are crowded with Renaissance cathedrals and Baroque palaces. As the countryside is dotted with the oldest known human structures in the world, the Islands have rightly been described as an open-air museum. The Maltese archipelago lies virtually at the centre of the Mediterranean. With superbly sunny weather, expansive beaches, a thriving night life and 7,000 years of intriguing history, there is a great deal to see and do. With a little help from any guidebook, captivating places of interest are immediately identified – the world famous Hypogeum selected as a place of World Heritage by UNESCO, prehistoric temples and grand palaces are but a few. True to the melting pot of cultural influences, the national languages are English and Maltese.

How to get there: Brithish Jet and RyanAir fly to Malta on low cost daily flights from the UK and Ireland. Malta's national airline, Air Malta have numerous scheduled flights daily from Heathrow and Gatwick besides several other frequent flights from several UK airports, like Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow. Airmalta has scheduled flights from practically every country in the EU.

The Maltese Islands are not very large, which makes getting around relatively trouble-free.

The public bus service on Malta and Gozo is a good way to get around as buses serve the major tourist areas, go practically everywhere and are cheap and efficient. The longest bus journey takes about fifty minutes; the average ride is between twenty and thirty minutes.

A regular ferry service links Malta to Gozo, taking about 20 minutes each way. A sea plane service links Grand Harbour in Valletta to Mgarr Harbour in Gozo.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

As a family with two children aged 9 and 12 this apartment was perfect. It is newly renovated and occupies a great location in a quiet area. There are many waterfront restaurants just a 200 stroll away. Also taxi boats are near the restaurants and they will transport you for very reasonable prices. There was never a problem finding free parking for our rental a car.

We visited the more touristy area of St Julian's but were very happy to be staying in the more authentic Maltese area of Sanglea.

Excellent apartment

  • 4 of 5

The location and apartment were excellent. One caveat before June 1st the ferry from Senglea to Valletta ends at approx. 7:30 so a taxi or bus is required to return to Senglea. The buses are easy to use and accessible. A car is not necessary.

Keith was very helpful all along and there was even supplies in the fridge when we arrived.

The view from the balcony was fantastic and we ate breakfast there and had wine in the evening. I would recommend a stay here as it was totally relaxing and lots of restaurants along the waterfront.

Thanks again Keith.

Design apartment with a breathtaking view

  • 5 of 5

Very good situation in Senglea out of the hussle of Valletta but just 10 min ferrytrip away of it. Quiet surroundings with some good restaurants near by. The apartment is tiptop and elegantly decorated. Breathtaking view to sea from balcony, living room and master bedroom. If ever back in Malta would absolutely rent this again.

Not quite as luxurious as advertised!

  • 3 of 5

The location and view is fabulous and parking is easy on the street right below (Xaft Juan B. Azopardo). When taking a taxi have then drop you off at St Philipo church in Senglea).

It is incredible to sit on the balcony enjoying the view of Valetta and watch the boats and cruise ships slide into the harbor. The narrow balcony only gets sun early in the morning. While the view is grandiose, the apartment needs a lot of maintenance! There are broken toilet seats, there is no hairdryer, as listed, and absolutely no plug or hooks in the master bathroom and unfortunately only a tub with handheld shower wand which makes it impossible to shower without soaking everything around you. The balcony doors don’t seal and there is a constant whistle of cold air coming through the doors. The second bathroom floods after using the shower and the toilets barely flush. The whole apartment and bedding (such as comforters) could also use a thorough cleaning--it is quite dirty. It’s not quite a luxurious as we had expected for the price! Doreen, the housekeeper, was very helpful and quick to respond when we had an issue. The views and the sunsets are grandiose and Senglea is an excellent location and much more authentic then Sliema.

5 star view, amazing!

  • 4 of 5

Senglea is part of the old 3 cities and in our view the most spectacular part of Malta. So much history, architecture and character. The apartment has the best of both worlds regarding location. On the Senglea waterfront offering the most spectacular views over the Grand Harbour and also part of the old, narrow, winding streets of the old city. A beautiful garden and shops are all within walking distance as is a beautiful square complete with domed church. Lovely restaurants and bars are all within walking distance, we preferred the restaurants across the bridge in Vittoriosa. It is easy to reach all areas of Malta either by bus or ferry from Senglea. The apartment is comfortable and stylishly decorated but is a little tired and does require some work. The balcony runs across the living room/kitchen area & master bedroom, ensuring you see those amazing views from most areas of the apartment. However, the balcony is only in the sun early morning until 9.30am. Keith the owner responds and deals with issues quickly. We would highly recommend Senglea as a base for historical Malta and with maintenance/cleaning issues resolved we would recommend this apartment.

A Little Piece of Heaven and History

  • 5 of 5

How can one surpass the superlatives already used to describe this fabulous place? It's stylish, comfortable, embracing - what a great surprise to have a starter pack in the fridge after 36 hours of flying from Australia that includes bread, butter, eggs, bacon and conserves.

Keith was incredibly easy to deal with and his housekeeper Doreen is a friendly darling.

But perhaps the most mind-blowing experience was to be able to sit in the sitting room and look at Fort St Angleo, the remnants of Fort St Elmo and know you are sitting close to the site that was Fort St Michael and see the scale of the battle that was fought during the Siege of Malta - across that narrow waterway was where the Knights of St John pulled up their great chain to protect the Great Harbour from invaders, there was where thee Knights and their extraordinarily brave Maltese soldiers died to the last man as they defended St Elmo against the odds for over 30 days. Imagine 6000 Knights, soldiers and Maltese people prevailing over 30,000 Ottomans.

The other fantastic aspect to this apartment stat you are within walking distance of the old town of the Knights of St John - Birgu, renamed Vittoriosa after the Siege - and just a short ferry ride from Valetta.

We enjoyed walking down along the waterfront and eating delicious meals so close to "home", admiring the extraordinarily beautifully decorated fishing boats and watching the older men sharing stories of memories and the fish that got away.

I can't recommend this place more highly and will work to trying to return soon.

Senglea

Senglea is a fortified city in the east of Malta, mainly in the Grand Harbour area. It is one of the Three Cities, with the other two being Cospicua and Vittoriosa. The city of Senglea is also called Civitas Invicta, because it managed to resist the Ottoman invasion at the Great Siege of 1565. The proper name is Senglea since the grandmaster who built it Claude De La Sengle, gave this city a part of his name.

The island was in fact joined by a land bridge to Cospicua during the time of the Knights of St. John and as a result, it became peninsular in shape. During the time of the Knights of St. John, Senglea was also used as a hunting area, and was in fact known as L'Isola di San Giuliano, but later it was developed and made inhabitable by the Grand Master, Claude de la Sengle who built fortifications following a Turkish invasion in 1551. The locality eventually became known as Senglea but retained its old name Isla.

Golf: Extract from Royal Malta golf club Website:

'The Royal Malta Golf Club is a private Members' Club founded in 1888. The club has seen many changes since its inception, when it was primarily set up as a facility for British servicemen stationed in Malta. Whilst essentially a members club we always try to give a warm welcome to all visitors who share our love of the game.

We have invested heavily in the golf course over recent years and feel that our 'product' is coming together nicely with the next project to be undertaken by the Board of Management likely to be a refurbishment of our club house.

Whether you are planning a visit to Malta or are already a member of the RMGC, I hope you will find the web site of interest and it will expand further over the coming year so keep coming back.'
