Malta, situated almost at the centre of the Mediterranean is an archipelago made up of seven small islands, just south of Sicily. You can find a villa in Malta either on the main island, or on Gozo, its smaller neighbour. The other islands include Comino, Comminotto and Filfla.
If youre in search of holiday rentals where you can experience rural, simple life, then head to a villa in Gozo. Smaller than its Maltese neighbour, and separated by just 5km, Gozo has beautiful landscapes and stunning beaches.
For culture vultures, the Maltese islands have been described as one big open air museum. The first significant civilisation here flourished in the third millennium BC, leaving behind fascinating megalithic temples which are well worth a visit. Later the island was occupied by the Phoenicians, the Carthaginians and the Romans. If youve got a holiday villa in Malta here, you can explore medieval walled citadels and splendid baroque churches and palaces. The influx of tourists in the summer triples the population of Malta, yet it is still easy to find quiet and secluded spots, far from the madding crowds, if that is what you are looking for in your villa in Malta. Visitors also come to Malta for the beautiful clear blue waters, the secluded bays and the sandy beaches, as well as the draw of the peaceful traditional villages which dot the landscapes. If youre in search of a peace and quiet, then Gozo is Maltas more tranquil neighbour. With just 43km of coastline, it has excellent watersports available, from sailing to diving, and even if you find your holiday villa in Malta in a farmhouse in the hills, you are never far away from the sea. Despite its size, Malta is even home to an 18 hole golf course, so golfers will be happy, watersports enthusiasts will be in their element, and those who want to lounge by the swimming pool in the peace of their holiday villa in Malta can do just that!
