Grand Harbour from my balcony in Senglea – one of the three cities central to Malta – overlooking Fort St Angelo, the city of Valletta – and thence through the harbour entrance towards Sicily. This is one of the most famous harbours in the world; a maritime centre of great and unique importance; – a legendary military and naval haven shrouded in the mists of time: those of the Phoenicians of ancient Tyre and Carthage and the classical civilizations of Hellas, – and the burgeoning power of Rome.
Sailing bye from my balcony
The Romans knew the Mediterranean Sea as Mare Nostrum, and the ancient fortress as Castrum Maris. In Italian it is Castello del Mare. The British named it – more prosaically: HMS Fort St Angelo: the base fortress of the British Mediterranean fleet.
The great ships of the modern world sail past the balcony, but you can read more of that on the HEADS IN THE CLOUDS page. My front door opens onto a narrow paved ‘pedestrian only’ street – Triq is-Sirene – Siren Street.
A regular ferry service runs back and forth across the harbour to Valletta, and a bus service takes a more circuitous route.
There are numerous restaurants and bars around Senglea’s watersides, and I swim in the harbour from Senglea point below the Gardjola and its famous gardens: – a European Union Site of Excellence

The apartment is mostly open plan – nothing palatial- separate bedroom area with study – small Mezzanine floor for extra sleeping space or storage – kitchen and bathroom (wetroom) and it’s not modern. It’d be easy enough to revamp it as you’d want it – as I did when I moved in 30 years ago, Its Freehold ;- built in stone, of course, with old tiled floors. My two pianos in the living area keep me busy – but they don’t come with the stones… It’s the view that matters to me; – that and its position away from the crowds, yet it’s barely 8 or 10 minutes drive to the airport.
