Full property description

All feature a simple but elegant decor highlighted with high ceilings and contemporary white finishes and most importantly served with lift, which, is not quite common for Valletta residences.
This stunning Borgo San Pawl is composed over 4 floors, comprising of 2 apartments set on each floor. The impressive, main entrance of this Borgo is the quintessential of Valletta mansions.

The entrance leads to a very modern, contemporary holiday let accommodation, which also incorporates elements of the traditional Maltese style, with a typical open plan kitchen/living/dining area. The kitchen is fully equipped which makes it ideal for cooking tasty home cooked meals. The living area comprises of a flat screen tv with cable channels and a comfortable 3-seater sofa, and also comes fully air-conditioned. The designers have specifically retained much of its original charm through the vintage 1930s tiles that embellish the main living space. The living area is illuminated by traditional Maltese high windows, which complement the high ceilings of the whole area.
The property comes also complete with a full family bathroom with shower cubicle on the first floor. There is also a double bedroom on the same floor, fully equipped with air-conditioning, and designed with a modern finish, combining traditional Maltese tiles with contemporary white furnishings. This bedroom also includes an ensuite half-bathroom complete with shower cubicle. The apartment flows up to the second floor, where one finds another bedroom with double bed, adorned with parquet flooring. The wrought iron bed completes the Maltese traditional style, while also oozing an aura of modernity through white furnishings. The bedroom comes complete with air-conditioning, as well as an ensuite half-bathroom with toilet and sink facilities. Wifi and tv are provided for free during any length of stay.
Valletta has many titles, all recalling its rich historical past. It is the "modern" city built by the Knights of St John; a masterpiece of the Baroque; a European Art City and a World Heritage City. Today, it is one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world.
The city is busy by day, yet retains a timeless atmosphere by night, that gives the feeling that you are walking back in time. The grid of narrow streets boasts some of Europe's finest art works, churches and palaces.
Valletta is abundantly rich in sites to see and explore, intriguing historical buildings around every corner: votive statues, niches, fountains and coats of arms high up on parapets. Narrow side streets are full of tiny quaint shops and cafés, while Valletta's main streets are lined with larger international branded shops for fashion, music, jewellery and much more.
The best way to get around and see the most, from your visit to Valletta, is on foot and although the things to do & see are many, a good start and definitely not to be missed are Valletta's beautiful gardens. The Upper Barrakka Gardens, Hastings Gardens & the Lower Barrakka Gardens are just three of the most popular ones. Apart from beautiful Baroque churches other places of interest include the various grandmaster auberges, piazzas & museums.
As in the rest of the country, the restaurant scene in Valletta is an eclectic mix offering a variety of cuisines to satisfy all tastes and budgets.
A growing number of eateries around the city are now offering local fare, serving their own versions of traditional specialities.
Maltese cuisine is the result of a long relationship between the islanders and the many conquerors who occupied the Maltese Islands over the centuries. This marriage of tastes has given local gastronomy a Mediterranean character all its own.
And nowhere is this mixture of culture and cuisne more strongly felt than in Malta's cosmopolitan capital.
