Situated about the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, Malta has long been an important stopping off point for traders from surrounding countries, and as such, it has developed a unique and fascinating culture. It is a beautiful island with a pleasant climate, dominated by a well-preserved historic city that makes the perfect spot for a luxury holiday.
When to visit
Malta has mild winters that make it attractive to people wanting to hike and avoid the crowds, but the most popular time to visit is from June to September when it’s warm enough to stretch out on the white sandy beaches or go for a dip in the sea. During this time of year there is rarely a cloud in the sky.
To sum up
A superb choice for luxury travellers looking for five-star holidays, Malta combines modern sophistication with historic splendour. Offering unique cultural experiences and a beautiful landscape, it is much more than just another beach resort and deserves to be fully explored.
The cuisine throughout Malta is full of flavour and colour, similar to what you would expect to find throughout the Mediterranean. Traditional dishes consist of Lampuki Pie (fish pie) and Rabbit stew. Rabbit stew (Malta’s main national dish) is served with seasoned vegetables and a succulent sauce, making a very tasty dish which you probably have never tried before. Another traditional dish for people who are not fond of the rabbit stew or any meaty flavours is ‘kapunata’, which is similar to ratatouille, made from fresh tomatoes, olives and other seasoned vegetables, bursting with flavour. Malta also supplies wine from vineyards, which is used in a lot of their cooking and of course it is good to simply drink as well. Malta has other dishes containing cheese, fish and many more, meaning everyone can enjoy a tasty, traditional Maltese dish. For those less adventurous, Malta has been a popular destination with British holidaymakers for many decades now. Our own tastes are very well catered for.
