I've read through many posts and the FAQ, and I'm still unsure where to stay. I will be in Malta for 3 days/4 nights in May. I am a 53-year-old woman traveling with my 8-year-old god-daughter, my 75-year-old mother, and another 60-year-old woman. We want to see historic sites, but also be in a location to entertain the child. We need to be near restaurants, cafes, etc. My mother has a bad knee, so long-distance walking is hard as are steps. I would like a sea view and access to the shore. We don't need a lot of night life (maybe a cafe or bar to have a drink). We do plan to go to Gozo one day on the ferry but return to Malta at night. I'm intrigued by the fishing villages of Marsascala and Marsaxlokk, but I don't know if they are truly "villages." I prefer a historic village to a modern resort area. Any suggestions?
