Malta consists of three small islands located in Mediterranean to the south of Sicily. Despite being just 3 hours away, it remains largely undiscovered by mass travel and offers interesting options for short breaks and longer holidays.
- Weather! The British climate often leaves us longing for a little more sunshine particularly during our autumn and winter. In summer Malta is very hot, but in spring, autumn, and winter temperatures are cooler and Malta offers an ideal climate for relaxing and exploring.
- Culture – for a tiny Island Malta has an amazing supply history that is easily accessible by foot and local transport. Valletta, is almost like an open museum with its magnificent fortress build by the Knights of St John in the 16th Century. Valletta was the 2018 European Capital of Culture.
- Food – the Maltese cuisine is greatly influenced by the islands history and offers an exotic mix of Italian, French, British and Arabic with excellent restaurants and local specialities.
- Activities – there are a good range of walking and biking trails plus a beautiful coast for swimming and scuba diving.
Valletta is a true cultural capital and perfect for a weekend break. Built on a peninsula just 1km by 600m it is enclosed by towering bastion walls and surrounded by clear blue. The Knights of St John laid the foundation stones in 1566 and created an eloquent baroque city.
There is always something going on, from the Baroque Music Festival in January to February’s carnival, an opera week in spring and the summer Jazz festival on the banks of the Grand Harbour. A great way to see its dramatic architecture, bastion walls and sea forts is on one of the harbour cruises that leave daily from the Sliema Waterfront.

Gozo is a 25 minute ferry trip from Malta and to experience its rural beauty I recommend a stay in one of the uniquely restored farmhouses.
Comino is tiny, just 3.5sq km, traffic free and boasting some of the best swimming in the Med. It can be accessed by ferry from Malta or Gozo and the ‘Blue Lagoon’ is a popular day trip. For those who want to really get away from it all we can arrange a stay in one of the island’s two hotels.

"Having three children always makes finding suitable accommodation difficult and expensive. This year we wanted a cruise and Helen immediately knew which ships offerred family cabins and saved us £1500 on the cost of having two cabins. We had an amazing time - thank you for all your help, advice and service - we will definitely recommend you to our friends."Martha N, Knutsford, Cheshire
