Synonymous with ancient sites dating back to Roman rule, Malta forms an archipelago in the central Mediterranean, between Sicily and the North African coast. With over 7,000 years of history, the Maltese islands continue to be a leading cultural and heritage destination for international tourists.
Among the popular sight-seeing attractions are the numerous fortresses, megalithic temples and the 'Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum', a subterranean complex of halls and burial chambers which date back to 3600 B.C.E.
For those looking for a spectacular getaway, one could consider this recently accredited Five Star Waterfront holiday rental which is available from €429 per night. It is an enchanting waterfront villa, idyllically situated in the Maltese capital of Valletta. Oozing character and charm, this sumptuous property dates back to the knights of St John where it formed part of the bastions.
Although expansive, the villa is secluded and inconspicuously tucked away on the foreshore of Valletta Bastions. Five Star clients will love the authentic feel of this stunning property, which has been carefully renovated to provide comfortable, stylish holiday accommodation while retaining all the original characteristics.
Indeed, it is a property full of interesting features that whisper of the past wherever you look. One can only wonder at the many lives and events that must have unfolded here over the centuries, however, attention was kept in preserving the historic aspect.
The marbled front doorway enters into an open sky-lit hall with arched openings leading to three entrances on each side and the front. The stairs makes the house so dramatic being partially preserved to its original state. Moreover, most of the walls have been left in their original form and texture, the typical Maltese limestone.
Immediately to the right, the arched doorway opens onto the kitchen/dining room. This lovely room is traversed by the typical wooden beams. The large bay windows open and light up the room. They offer a unique view of the stunning harbour and Sliema shore. The kitchen is fully equipped for easy cooking and for any kind of meal.
The dining area leads to the living area where the neutral coloured sofas and armchairs complement the honey coloured stone as does the modern parquet flooring which is a recent addition. Furthermore the entertainment area leads to 3 bedrooms, two on the same level and the 3rd one on the 1st floor accessible by a wooden staircase. On the ground floor there are 2-bedrooms one with a double bed with en-suite with a bath tub and the other with 3 single beds. Also on the same floor there is another bathroom with shower closure as well.
On the 1st floor then there is another double bed with another single bed so it can sleep 3 people comfortably in beds. Also this bedroom comes with another en-suite with a shower cubicle. The low stone arches are visible in this bedroom and once again indicate its great age. Moreover on the other side of the main entrance there is another bedroom with a double bed and even more another en-suite with a shower cubicle.
On the other side of the entrance there is the iconic part of this one of a kind villa...the outdoor area. The area consists of a stunning pool measuring 6m by 4m surrounded by decking also on its side there is a Jacuzzi measuring of 2m by 2m. Moreover, there is an outdoor table with chairs for 8 people and a gas bbq for fresco nights to enjoy and relax the great views and sea breeze.
