As the economy of Malta continues to grow and it cements itself as a hub for international digital innovation, investing in Maltese property for sale becomes a wise decision.

Many investors flock to areas such as St Julian’s and Sliema to snap up a property, but Valletta, the country’s historic capital city is the coveted destination. So what makes it so enticing and why should you buy property in Valletta? Let us read on to find out…

Summer starts in May and runs until the rains come in November, the winters are short and mild, and on average, the island enjoys a whopping 3000 hours of sunshine annually. Whilst the summer can get rather hot in July and August, luckily you are surrounded by miles of the best swimming and diving waters in Europe so going for a swim to cool off is always a pleasure. There are not many places in the world, let alone Europe that enjoy such a delightful climate

It is Paradise for Art Lovers

The city is home to architectural gems, historic theatres, vast cathedrals, and majestic palazzos, all just waiting to be explored.
