Renting a Home in Valletta
Malta’s capital city Valletta is as full of history and rich Baroque architecture as it is of modern entertainment and business ventures.
Built in its unique grid formation by the Knights of St John, the city – known informally by locals as ‘Il-Belt’ – is the ideal place to absorb the essence of the Maltese lifestyle by renting one of the many real estate options in the area, ranging from converted ancient palazzos and restored townhouses to modern luxury apartments and penthouses.
Depending on the part of Valletta you choose to reside in, life in the city could entail being part of the hubbub in the centre, surrounded by shops and businesses, or instead could involve a quieter, slower pace of life on the stepped streets and narrow lanes.
Wherever your preference, the heart of the capital is just a short walk away, where one can experience culture at its finest, especially as Valletta is the European Capital of Culture in 2018, or try one of the countless restaurants, coffee shops and bars in the area.
Shopping and Transport
For a shopping trip with a difference, there is plenty to appeal in Valletta. With the two main streets of the city being pedestrianised and entirely devoted to a huge variety of shops, Valletta has enough to exhaust even the most devoted shopaholic.
However, for access to even more shops, then a regular ferry service is available from Valletta’s coast over to Malta’s other shopping hotspot, Sliema, which also has the advantage of giving passengers a spectacular view across the crystal blue water during the journey.
As Malta’s capital, Valletta is also home to the island’s main bus terminus, and it is thereby very well connected for transport links.
Food and Drink
Whether you want to take dinner in an elegant palazzo or tend more towards a cocktail in a wine bar with a view, there is something for everyone when it comes to dining in Valletta.
Whatever the occasion, enjoy an informal working lunch or coffee meeting with friends in one of the cafes in the heart of the city, or perhaps book a table at an atmospheric restaurants in the capital. After all, the city promises some of the best examples of Maltese cuisine available in Malta.
There are so many places of note in Valletta, that the city itself is officially recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Within the city walls, there is plenty to fascinate both locals and tourists alike, including countless museums, theatres, the National Library, piazzas, St John’s Co Cathedral and the new Parliament building, to name a few.
Events in these venues are also plentiful, with regular festivals, performances, parades, feasts, concerts and exhibitions enough to make the city worthy of the being European Capital of Culture in 2018.
Should you have visiting guests meanwhile, there are a number of boutique hotels in the area, where they can enjoy being in the thick of luxury Mediterranean lifestyle for the duration of their visit.
