Malta

Malta and the smaller islands of Gozo and Comino are great value for money and often overlooked when considering a Mediterranean holiday.  With over 7000 years of history, there are hundreds of cultural sites and festivals to visit here, with the capital, Valleta, being a World Heritage site and includes the medieval walled town of Mdina and the Hypogeum, an underground necropolis.

Malta has been the scene of many a filmset and visiting the various famous locations can easily fill a weekend, come and see some of the places viewed from your TV or big screen!  For a cultural holiday there are plenty of music and arts events with things to see and do all year round. If outdoor activities are your thing you can choose from many water sports or cycling, walking and horse riding. There are a number of spa hotels now meeting the needs of the pampered traveller plus trendy waterside cafes and bars for the luxury yacht market. Food and drink plays a big part in Maltese culture and wandering the markets and rural villages is all part of the fun here.

Bear in mind that while Malta’s beaches are safe and shallow, there are not many sandy beaches, so pick your hotel carefully if you do want to be in a family friendly beach resort.

Gozo is much quieter and has some lovely sweeping beaches and headlands to wander the walking trails and take in amazing sunsets, the countryside is dotted with stone farmhouses and ancient churches. There is a self guided walking holiday which you can enjoy here October through to May. Comino only has one hotel and a handful of residents, so a visit here really is like stepping back in time!

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
