This fully air conditioned property is well appointed with all ameneties all designed to make your stay in Malta a comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable one. The location is just superb - as soon as you arrive, throw open the front doors and go onto the balcony, I can forget everything else. There is always something to watch in Grand Harbour - from superyachts and super-sized cruise ships to rowing boats and the local luzzu. Even a dolphin or two if you are lucky!

This fully air conditioned property is well appointed with all ameneties all designed to make your stay in Malta a comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable one. The location is just superb - as soon as you arrive, throw open the front doors and go onto the balcony, I can forget everything else. There is always something to watch in Grand Harbour - from superyachts and super-sized cruise ships to rowing boats and the local luzzu. Even a dolphin or two if you are lucky! What makes this apartment unique? The view and the location and the access to such a wide variety of places to eat and drink just on the doorstep ! In the summer, you can go swimming in the sea just outside the apartment or crossing the creek and making your way round to the sandy bay at Rinella. The apartment not only has stunning views of Grand Harbour but is also just a short stroll away from the Grand Harbour Marina with its ocean-going super yachts, restaurants, wine bars, casino and the Maritime Museum; the 12th Century Fort St Angelo; and Birgu, the home city of the Knights of St John from 1530. A stroll of five to seven minutes takes you into the historic city of Vittoriosa (Birgu), where there are local provisions shops, and a bakery which is a living museum of a kind. A similar stroll along the marina waterfront delivers you to a parade of wonderful restaurants open for both lunch and dinner. Diving is a possibility and can be arranged with local diving teachers. Local boats can transport you to Sliema and to Valletta, or alternatively the buses are close by. More As a fully equipped, three bedroom residence, the apartment offers a high standard of contemporary, stylish accommodation for holidaymakers seeking a quiet, relaxing holiday on the doorstep of one of Malta's oldest, most beautiful and historic cities. There is a large, open plan kitchen, dining area and sitting room that opens out onto a sea-facing Maltese stone balcony with table and chairs perfect for relaxing in the evening with a glass of prosecco. The large master bedroom with 6ft bed has an en suite shower room and toilet.

About the neighbourhood
Birgu (Vittoriosa) Vittoriosa is one of the towns designated 'city' by the Knights of St. John. The atmosphere is steeped in history and intrigue. A profound sense of silence and peacefulness embraces you as you saunter through the streets of ancient houses and dwelling places. The church of St. Lawrenz dominates. Vittoriosa has been a popular film location and some of the buildings have featured time and again in films that you may well have seen. The Count of Monte Christo, Gladiator, and Troy were in part filmed within the Three Cities. An international marina now plays host to an increasing number of super yachts from all over the world that come to berth for days at a time.
