Holiday Rental House
Valletta G-House is a little private town house within the walls of Valletta, Malta capital and also a Unesco World Heritage City. This graceful 16th century pied-à-terre is one of the last remaining architectural jewels in the 450 year old city. It’s been furnished with comfort in mind, taking care to respect its original character and history. If you’re looking for a self-catering holiday rental with outstanding character, that reflects the country’s history, heritage and culture in both architecture and furnishings, you will love the Valletta G-House.

If you’re looking for a self-catering holiday rental with outstanding character, that reflects the country’s history, heritage and culture in both architecture and furnishings, you will love the Valletta G-House. The house and its particular location in Valletta, offers an undiluted experience of the Maltese traditional way of life – a boutique rental in a typical Valletta street where neighbours still lower their baskets for the bread man and the grocer knows your name. 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.

About the neighbourhood
Away from the usual tourist resorts, Valletta G-House is in the heart of the city's life and history. Valletta itself is built on a human scale, clustered in a tight grid of narrow streets behind grand fortifications. With its baroque architecture and floodlit bastions, numerous beautiful churches, palaces and lively people, it is a delightful city. Its slightly faded glory and its Grand Harbour are memorable (do take the water taxi view the high fortifications from the sea. Everything is within walking distance and, as we all know, there is no better way to see and experience the city than on foot. Plenty of small restaurants and cafes, a historic theatre and an open air one, cinema and plenty museums close by.
Getting around
Valletta is small in size, and it is quite possible for most people to explore the whole city on foot. Get hold of a good street map - or use the one on your mobile device - and you can get around town without any problem. However, do keep in mind that Valletta is quite hilly, and some streets dip rather steeply towards the harbour. Travelling to Valletta by public transport is easy. Many of the buses start and finish their journey at the Main Terminus just outside City Gate. The Malta Public Transport company also operates a convenient circular route around Valletta. A system of electric cabs is also in operation within Valletta. A romantic alternative is to use horse-drawn carriages known as Karozzin.
