Karina and Peter will have the pleasure of hosting you in one of their properties that you have chosen for your stay - The Bastion, their 1000 year old property with private pool standing on the bastions of the Silent City of Mdina (Malta). This property is one of the best in Malta while Mdina, Malta's former capital, is very special by any measure.
The Bastion together with a stunning penthouse in the historical centre of Krakow, Poland (www.apartamentwcentrum.pl) and a breathtaking 18th century French wine domain and chateau with 5 B&B suites and 7 self catering gites in France (www.chateau-rieutort.fr) make up Karina and Peter's suite of properties available for your next trip. It is their and now your choice of home away from home where, surrounded by history and touched by luxury, you will enjoy an unforgetable holiday.
The Bastion is unique and one of the most photographed buildings in Mdina. The Malta post office commemorated its front door on the 20 cent stamp issued in 2018. The house is stunning inside and out with views across Malta to the sea and the only private pool on the city bastions. There are extensive private terraces offering privacy and calm. Parts of the house date back to the 10th century. The upper living room, terraces and pool offer views of much of Malta and the Mediterranean Sea while Mdina's location at the centre of Malta will mean that all of Malta's many attractions are closer at hand. There are many cheaper properties in Malta but for those looking for the best...you've found it.
The property is 20 min drive from the airport and is well served by public and private cabs and Malta's extensive bus network. Easily accessible are Valletta (the capital), St. Julians (party district), Dingli Cliffs (great walking area), Blue Grotto, Ħaġar Qim megalitic Temple, the beaches at Riveria and Golden Beach and many other places worth visiting.
Nearly next door is a 3D digital audio visual presentation about the Knights of Malta and 10 min walk from the house are the St. Paul's and St. Agatha's catacombs. You will not be bored while on the island and after this visit you will likely become a regular to Malta for its landscape, food, monuments and friendly people.
