  • About Malta & Gozo

    Malta and Gozo have striking, rugged and rocky coastlines; however, there are several lovely beaches to enjoy on each Island, such as Mellieha Bay and Golden Bay in Malta and Ramla l-Hamra in Gozo. Both islands are renowned for their sparkling clear waters and rocky coves, which make them ideal scuba diving hotspots and people come from all over the world to experience diving in the crystalline seas.

    Despite its relatively small size, Malta offers plenty of things to see and do during your villa holiday. There are chic harbour towns such as Paola and Isla where you can indulge in some fine dining, as well as parties and festivals such as the Malta Firework and Jazz festivals where you can soak up the atmosphere. Visit the capital city of Valetta, which was built for the Order of the Knights of St John, where you can admire the splendid architecture of St John’s Co Cathedral and Casa Rocca Piccola - a 16th century palace.

    Gozo is a lot greener and slightly more rural than neighbouring Malta. If you enjoy sightseeing then the capital is a must-visit with its magnificent domed cathedral, the Gozo Museum of Archaeology and the Natural science museum. Gozo also has a stunning coastline to explore, with pretty bays and uncrowded beaches with crystal-clear waters to enjoy.

    Both islands offer incredible, mouth-watering cuisine to discover and enjoy. Maltese food has strong Mediterranean roots as well as influences from North Africa and Sicily. Tantalise your taste buds with local delicacies such as zalzett - a coriander-flavoured Maltese sausage - and pastizzi - savoury, ricotta-filled pastries.

  • When to go to Malta & Gozo

    Malta and Gozo are blessed with warm summers with plenty of sunshine, making this season the ideal time to rent a villa. Their weather tends to be very consistent with temperatures often reaching 30 degrees in the high summer - typical of a hot, sunny Mediterranean climate. The weather really warms up from about April, with rain rarely occurring through the summer months.

  • Cultural Highlights

    Don’t be deceived by their small size - Malta and Gozo both enjoy a unique cultural and historic legacy which you can discover. No trip to Malta would be complete without visiting any of a number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the Megalithic Temples - seven of which are scattered throughout the islands of Malta and Gozo and predate even the Pyramids of Egypt.

    Malta’s capital city, Valletta, is likewise a World Heritage Site and home to some 320 monuments. With a long military history, it has been ruled by the Romans, Greeks and Arabs giving it a unique cosmopolitan charm.

    Gozo - often nicknamed the ‘Isle of Calypso’ due to its links with Homer’s Odyssey - is simply stunning and will make for an unforgettable holiday. Explore the ‘Our Lady of Ta’ Pinu Basilica in Victoria - a beautiful, well-maintained church with panoramic views to enjoy. Also, don’t miss out on a visit to the Ggantija temples whilst on your James Villa holiday, where you can see structures dating back to between 3600 and 3200 BC and marvel at the amazing architecture.
