Most vacation home buyers associate the island lifestyle with white sand beaches, tropical climate and also the escape from civilization. For those of you who would rather immerse yourselves in an island experience that is also rich in history and culture with year-round temperate climate, consider the Mediterranean island country of Malta for your next home.
Centrally located at the very heart of the Mediterranean Sea, just below Sicily, Malta is easily accessible from all major European and North African cites. A member of the European Union, Malta, with its relatively low cost of living, genuinely friendly people who speak English as one of two official languages, is politically stable, and is also one of the safest places in the area.
For sports enthusiasts, Malta has it all, from country club sports such as golf, tennis and squash, to water sports including world class scuba diving, water skiing, windsurfing and sailing, to mountain biking and hiking among ancient ruins. The variety of cultural experiences such as a carnival that dates back to the 16th century, the world’s most successful Kung Fu show, music, dance and theatrical events, set Malta apart, not just as a wonderful island to visit, but also great place to live.
Malta also enjoys a stable property market with outstanding tax advantages for foreign buyers. An exemplary Maltese property currently on market is an impressive castle built in the early 1900’s. It is one of the architectural jewels of Rabat in Malta the other major island of the Maltese archipelago. The castle lies at the edge of an elevated plateau with spectacular 360 degree views from all four towers. It is surrounded by approximately 13,500 square meters of beautifully landscaped gardens and is enclosed within high protective walls. Complimenting this castle is a beautiful private chapel—the Rotunda church of St. Maria—that can be seen from miles away.
According to Carl Peralta of 77 Great Estates, “Malta is the Mediterranean’s best kept secret; why wouldn’t someone like living in Malta? It is safe & small therefore proximity to beaches & work/schools is an advantage. Everyone speaks English and schools including University enjoy an extremely high level of education ideal for kids. Foreigners find it easy to purchase real estate in Malta”
