This truly unique, recently renovated, elevated two-bedroom apartment is located in one of the most idyllic part of Malta’s Capital City – Valletta. It is exactly located in one of the best vantage points overlooking the beautiful and breathtaking Valletta Grand Harbour. Lying approximately halfway along the Valletta peninsula, this condo is in an ideal spot to reach all the hidden treasures of the city including the conspicuous gems that made our history.
This charming home's design and conversion have been carefully restored to meet the comfort of everyday needs. The home is situated on the first floor owning its own main entrance accessible with a typical Maltese stone staircase.
The property is embellished with 5 traditional Maltese balconies which accentuate its brightness and freshness, and give a truly one-of-a-kind 180 degree view of Valletta. From the winding city streets on one side, to the dazzling blue of the Med on the other, this property's views are like no other. The entrance flows into the bright and airy kitchen/living/dining area. The kitchen is highly modern and exquisitely finished, adorned with all basic cooking utensils and crockery with built-in fridge/freezer, electric hob and oven and a washer/dryer as well.
The dining area is soaked by natural sunlight coming from the 2-spacious Maltese balconies and sits 4 persons comfortably. Dinners in this property will be like no other, with magnificent views over the splendid Grand Harbour, spectacular by day and even more so by night.

This one of a kind property makes it ideal for all those who are after a sightseeing holiday or for those who would just wish to stay and relax, enjoying the soft sea-breeze and stunning views. This property is literally a few minutes off walk from Republic Street which is the principal street in the capital.
Visit Valletta and walk through history, with impressive buildings, niches, fountains, coats of arms or votive statues in most corners. Conversely you may choose to do a touch of shopping in the numerous outlets in the center, or just laze around and enjoy the local cuisine in any of the numerous cafes and restaurants in the city or why not just browse in the narrow side streets to discover a mix of old and new? Valletta, “Citta’ Umilissima” as Malta’s capital city is known is a “city built by gentlemen for gentlemen”, a living, breathing city, a city definitely worth visiting.
