An introduction to Valletta Vintage

How would you describe Valletta Vintage in a nutshell?

Valletta Vintage are vacation rentals for the design-conscious traveler without the super high price tag.

Usually well-designed vacation homes with good service are very expensive to stay at. I wanted to provide that same luxurious accommodation within a beautifully designed environment, but in the form of apartments, at a lower price.

How would you describe the interior design of the vacation apartments?

The interior design of the apartments is a mix between contemporary and vintage. For example, the flooring is made of 150-year-old tiles but set into a contemporary pattern.

In terms of the atmosphere, I would say the apartments are somewhat alive, as I like to move things around a lot. If you have stayed with us before on vacation, on your return you will find that things have changed and improved. You will notice that there are entire sets of new chairs, for example, as this is my biggest soft spot. Usually every time I go to a flea market I find a new chair, which I then add to the collection in the apartments or exchange it with another one.

Also, one of the most beautiful things about the apartments is that they are facing south and therefore always have lots of sunlight coming in.

What has been the biggest reward about running Valletta Vintage?

For some reason, we attract guests who have similar likes and tendencies when it comes to design and life philosophy. The biggest reward has been to get to know our guests and potentially even become friends with them. It is a wonderful experience when a friendship is started by a shared interest in things like architecture and design, or even a book collection.

At the moment the apartments are self-catering vacation rentals. We are however considering serving breakfast or possibly working together with a nearby café to act as our guests’ breakfast location.

Each vacation rental has a small kitchenette with a coffee maker, a kettle for tea, and a mini fridge. The main kitchen is shared with the other apartments. And then there is the gallarija, the traditional Maltese balcony, which is the perfect spot for our guests to enjoy their breakfast.

Things to do in Valletta

  • Fishing

Depending on the length of stay there are different recommendations I would give to our guests. If they were here for three to four nights, I would recommend them to stay within a range of two to three kilometers of Valletta. They could, however, take a ferry to visit the medieval towns on the other islands.

If they come for a week’s vacation, I would suggest renting a car and exploring the north of the island. Even though the size of Malta is only 19 kilometers from top to bottom there is a lot to see, like the old capital and the beautiful beaches which are nice to visit during all seasons. A day trip to Gozo, another one of the islands of the Maltese archipelago, is also something I would recommend.

There are beaches near Valletta where our guests can go to swim or snorkel. I would, however, recommend the beaches in the south of Malta. They’re less accessible by public transport, and therefore not as crowded as the northern beaches. They have very beautiful limestone formations so you’re basically swimming in an organically sculptured beach.

The north of Malta has the well-known sandy beaches such as Golden Bay. My favorite beach is Riviera, which is the smallest one and not as easy to get to as you have to climb down and up about 300 steps in total so it is more quiet and private than the bigger, more popular beaches.

The location of Valletta Vintage

Valletta, the capital of Malta, is the very best of what the Maltese archipelago has to offer to its visitors. As one of the few cities in the world that was planned as a Renaissance city from scratch it is the most unique piece of the island. Its topography and architecture is unlike anywhere else in the world.

The vacation apartments are situated centrally on the peninsula. Whether you want to go out to eat, do some shopping or go see a movie at the cinema, every place in Valletta is accessible by foot. You can park your car right by the apartments and then walk from there.

Valletta, the city itself is a must-see for its architecture and picturesque streets. One of Caravaggio’s last works and his biggest painting in existence, the Beheading of St. John, is also in Valletta and well worth a visit.

Valletta also has the highest percentage of restaurants in Malta, and all are accessible by foot.

When is the best time to visit Valletta?

If you want to experience the real Malta you should come during winter or even between March and May. Starting in May it gets very hot and you will spend most of your time searching for shade and cooler places. The winters in Malta are mild, it might rain but usually the sun comes out at one point every day.

Malta has nice beaches but in summer they often get quite crowded. So winter is actually a better time to visit, as the beaches are less busy.
