“Casa Bernard, Rabat, Malta”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Malta is very good for museums, archaeological sights, and general places of interest, but this is an absolute gem, because you are not going to be in a place with loads of other tourists hogging the sites, but will have an individual small group tour given by a charming Maltese couple showing you their own house!

The furniture and other contents are varied, and the owner is very knowledgable about them.

We were made to feel very welcome, and even extended our stay there by being shown the rear courtyard and the plants in it.

“Casa Bernard Rabat”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

This was the most amazing tour. We were shown round by the lady of the house. She and her husband had spent 30 years renovating the old house and gathering an amazing collection of Louis XV and Louis XVI furniture, inlaid local pieces and small silver items. The place felt very much lived in as well as being a repository of amazing items.

“Fascinating”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

On a recent holiday to Malta I visited this lovely old house jam packed with art and antiques. The owner showed us around and explained the history of the house and the treaures his family had acquired over many generations. Our host was charming and funny. Most people visit Mdina. Rabat is very nearby and it is well worth going to see this fascinating house.

“A real gem”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

We came upon this private house which welcomes visitors by accident. We were welcomed by the owner who took us round explained features of interest and was able to talk to us about features which were of particular interest to us. The house gives a real insight into the life of an upper class Maltese family and has all the features associated with life in Malta in the 17th century onwards.
