A quirky little house on three floors linked by a curving staircase
Romantic holiday accommodation in a graceful period house within the walls of Valletta - a World Heritage City on the island of Malta. This 16th century holiday home has been carefully restored, keeping all its charming features. Close to loads of bars and restaurants, theatres, the airport is only 5 km away, public transport, nightlife, and the city center. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.

The space
Winner of the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence 2017.
Valletta G-House's location, close to the historic Fort St Elmo, is about the unadulterated experience of local way of life. This pioneering holiday home has been featured for its beauty in magazines and voted travel writer's choice by both the Guardian Travel Section and by Lonely Planet Guide.

Valletta G-House is on three floors (see plan on pictures) and has a spacious double bedroom (4.9m x 5.8m) with a traditional Maltese wooden balcony, a sitting/TV room (4.9m x 2.8m), a fully equipped kitchen/dining room (3.6m x 4.6m) and a shower/WC (4.5m x 0.9m). The shower/toilet ceiling is only 1.8m high so if you're taller than that you might need to watch your head coming in and out.

In the past the kitchen used to be a cellar, and is therefore the coolest room in the house. Today, its coolness offers a refuge from the hot summer weather outside, however for those who don't cope well with high levels of humidity, the kitchen might not be the best spot in the house.



Using the house as your base, discover the city built by the Knights of St John back in 1565, with its palaces, churches, restaurants, cafes and interesting little shops, all within walking distance.

Where you’ll be

Il-Belt Valletta, Malta

With its magnificent baroque architecture and floodlit bastions, numerous beautiful churches, palaces and lively people, Valletta is a delightful city. It’s slightly faded glory and its narrow side streets, its Grand Harbour will all remain imprinted in your memory long after your holiday in Malta. The Knights’ official name for the city was “Humilissima Civitas Vallettæ” (Most Humble) but the ruling houses of Europe rightly gave it its nickname “Superbissima” (Most Proud).

After the Order of St John was ousted out of Rhodes, they first settled in Vittoriosa, as they tried to recreate the way of life they had there. It was only with the unexpected vistory over the Ottoman Empire in the Great Siege of 1565 that Grandmaster La Valette decided their was an anvantage to the peninsula of Mount Sciberras.

Grateful for the knights victory, the Pope in Rome sent his own architect Laparelli to help design the new city. The design saw a rigid grid plan of uniformly designed houses dotted with palaces, baroque churches and squares. There were to be eight auberges, one for each language in the Order, a Grand Master’s palace “as large as Palazzo Farnese in Rome”, a conventual church and a hospital. The building started in 1566 with the church of Our Lady of Victoria.

Gerolamo Cassar continued where Laparelli left off. Combining the two architects work, Valletta remains the beautiful and elegant baroque city they envisaged. Valletta suffered greatly with World War II as well as in the hands of successive governments who perhaps could have done more to maintain it.

In the last decade, people returned to Valletta, they restored old houses and palaces. Restoration on the fortifications and public buildings started in earnest and a new entrance to the city designed by renowned architect Renzo Piano came into being. With 2018 and the European City of Culture title looming, Valletta is having a renaissance.
