An island centrally located in the Mediterranean Sea, Malta holidays can be considered the jewel of the region. With a fine climate, surrounded by sparkling blue sea and home to many historic sites, it is easy to see why Malta is so popular a holiday destination with tourists from all over the world. It is a wonder that so much is possible in such a small area of space. At only 19 miles at its longest point, Malta is a country that has managed to pack a lot into not very much space, including some truly stunning Malta villa rentals.
Its strategic position on the globe has made it into an important focus for people wanting to gain control over areas of the world. Malta has been controlled by a range of nations, including the Romans, Greeks, French and British. This foreign influence has had a major impact on the cultural fabric and history of the country and has left it with an important legacy of historic sites. Malta became a Republic in 1974, 10 years after gaining independence from Britain. This has not, however, reduced the British population of the island; a large ex-pat community has formed which ensures to this day that English is still widely spoken alongside the other official language, Maltese.
