Malta Holiday Villas and Malta Holiday Rentals - sun, sea, sand and world-class holiday activities
Malta’s sandy beaches, sublime weather, friendly people and wealth of activities and entertainment has made it an immensely popular Mediterranean holiday destination. Even though the majority of visitors travel to this paradise island to lounge on the radiant beaches and soak up the sun, Malta has many hidden gems off the beaten tourist track.
It has been suggested that the Maltese islands were originally settled in 5200 BC. The Sicani, Stone Age hunters and farmers from the larger island of Sicily, are said to have been the first settlers due to pottery remains found at Skorba that closely resembled the Sicani’s. Throughout the ages, Malta has played host to the Ancient Greeks, Phoenicians and Romans, making way for Arabs, and French. In 1814 Malta officially became part of the British Empire, but achieved its independence in 1964. Today Malta is a melting pot of rich heritage.
