You are currently viewing The Maltese Archipelago, the heart of the Mediterranean

The 7 islands that make up the Maltese archipelago reflect more than 7000 years of history thanks to the fortifications that surround Valletta, the medieval city of Mdina, the blue lagoon of Comino or the megalithic temples located in the North of the island and on the island of Gozo.

The smallest country in Europe by size is also one of the largest in history. Whether it’s discovering the capital of Valletta, which was the European capital of culture in 2018 or Gozo, Malta’s little sister, the possibilities are endless.

The cities of Cospicua, Vittoriosa and Senglea which form the Three Cities have benefited from a specific renovation in recent years. These typical villages are built of Maltese stone, just like Mdina, the ancient capital of Malta. The Maltese stone, ocher yellow, is as magnificent in the middle of the day with the sun contrasting with the color of the sea as can be seen in the Three Cities as at dusk in the silent city of Mdina, which lit only by a few lanterns here and there, offers a very special atmosphere combining elegance and charm for your evenings.

Malta is a blend of Eastern hospitality, European culture and Anglo-Saxon thoroughness.

You will find beautiful small boutique hotels in the heart of Valletta that will give you the impression of a trip in the Knight’s times. For a different type of accommodation, the “Farmhouses” on Gozo will undoubtedly seduce you. These old traditional farms have been completely renovated into villas with swimming pools. There are a few villages of Farmhouses perfect for customers who wish to experiment.

Maltese are proud of their identity and show it to us by their cuisine, which is also defined by the many colonies that have settled in Malta over the centuries. Local products such as Imqarret (fried date donut) or pastizzi (puff pastry with ricotta) will be an undeniable success during coffee breaks during which local soda and local beer will also be served. The local wines are also the pride of the Maltese who have very good vineyards in the centre of which it is possible to organize lunches and dinners.

With more than 300 days of sun a year and less than 3 hours flight from the main capitals of Europe, Malta will adapt to your needs and your desires thanks not only to the historical background of the country but also to the beauty of its monuments, its landscapes and its crystal clear sea.

Malta is the possibility of a total change of scenery while staying in Europe.
