The space

Enjoy this boutique one-bedroom apartment with stunning sea-views located in the history-steeped town of Senglea within walking distance to Birgu and 3 (but intense) minutes ferry to Valletta. The apartment has a variety of original Maltese features and provides an authentic experience.

In the hart of the historic Malta, set right at the magnificent waterfront of the oldest of the Three cities (founded by the Knights in 1552), this apartment offers stunning views, authentic historical setting for the sophisticated traveler and all the modern conveniences at a knock-down price! Among the latter we count convenient ferry, bus and water taxi transport links to Valletta and beyond, exquisite restaurant and bar outlets just across the creek, plus the numerous local establishments at hand.

The apartment is furnished with a tasteful emphasis on the original Maltese features now rapidly disappearing throughout the island's noisier and busier tourist areas. These features include traditional patterned tiles (to keep the weary traveler's feet cool in the heat), traditional Maltese balcony insightfully converted into a dining room with breath-taking views of the Grand harbour and the cities of Valletta and Vittoriosa (beautiful settings should finally be counted as the necessary condition for healthy eating and living!). Old wooden beams adorn the aristocratic high ceilings, adding a touch of nostalgic grandeur.

All this combines to offer an unbeatable travel experience which breaks radically with the standardized mass hotel packages of today's tourist industry. Come and explore a little-known Maltese locality which offers a glimpse into the authentic Maltese life-style; a locality that is distant, yet close enough to the more established sites.The ferry connection to Valletta(4min) across the Grand Harbour is second to no other type of transportation (sometimes the truth of the old worn-out proverb that the journey is more important than the destination holds unconditionally but if you insist on renting a car, there is plenty of parking space also).

The apartment comprises a bedroom with a double niche bed, a spacious and elegantly vintage-furnished living room (with a sofa-bed), a dining area, a fully equipped kitchenette (for those who are tired of eating out and want to experiment with local fresh produce at home) and a bathroom (needless to say, also with sea views!).

Alberto's place is good and in a quiet area. The ferry is good to get into Valetta however be prepared to walk. Also the bed is not very big and against the wall. The flat is authentic and traditional Maltese style

I highly recommend a stay at Alberto's charming Maltese residence in Senglea! The apartment is light and breezy, with a beautiful view out into the harbour. The little area is wonderful to walk around, and watching the boats sail in and out is very calming, especially after hangi…

The flat is a quaint, simple, traditional space in one of the older parts of town. It is comfortable and has fabulous views. It takes a little longer to get to Valletta by ferry than advertised but the walk to the terminal is lovely and the views from the ferry itself are worth t…

Alberto met us nearby the flat and introduced us to where we were staying. He provided us some tips about the area. The flat was very basic and very small. We appreciated the heating. Eating and cafes were limited in Senlea and somewhat a walk to availability in Birgu.
