NEW!! Superb recently renovated (April 2016), fully air-conditioned designer-finished top floor apartment with sea & cityscape views. Relax & enjoy an authentic Valletta at a unique apartment situated in a great location and only 3 mins away from Valletta's main square!
This lovely very recently renovated fully independent two-bedroomed apartment forms part of an old building which has been used as a palaceial residence - today used as a block of apartments.
Designed with style, the apartment has been carefully restored and is decorated with art pieces by various local and foreign artists.
This charming home's design and conversion have been entrusted to a creative artist/designer.
Situated on the fourth floor (without lift), the apartment features the building's old authentic patterned tiles and stone facade. The sun-drenched living room gives the house a sophisticated touch which blends harmoniously with the lofty and vintage feel of the apartment. The apartment is embellished with a private balcony (with sea views) where you can read the newspapers in natural light or enjoy your morning coffee or evening wine. From the 200m2 roof terrace (shared) you can enjoy breathtaking sea and cityscape views whilst sunbathing or enjoying a nice cold beer.
The apartment has a kitchen-living-dining room and two double bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has an ensuite bathroom (with shower). There's also a second bathroom (with shower) next to the kitchen/living/dining area. The bed in the second bedroom (which may be closed off with Japanese panels) is a double sofa bed. In the living room, there is also another double sofa bed (with a comfy mattress) which means that the apartment may accommodate 2 additional guests. On request, a baby cot may be provided.
The fully equipped kitchen features a built-in fridge-freezer, electric hob, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, electric kettle, pots, pans and kitchen utensils. The apartment has a TV, a DVD player, Wi-Fi, a washing machine and is fully air-conditioned (cooling/heating functions).
Clean linen and towels will be provided.
The building has no lift, which is very normal in Valletta.
