Alice and Leo were the best, communication was fantastic from pre-booking to leaving the apartment. As there was only 2 of us travelling, Leo was the perfect gent in not only picking us up from the airport but also dropping us back for the return flight. The apartment is lovely and very generous in space.
Alice and Leo had also organised a welcome basket of: water, bread, cheese, ham, tea, coffee and milk!
Malta is not for the faint hearted or those who are afraid of hills. The apartment is in St Julians about 5-10 mins walk 'downhill' to the seafront. It's quite an imposing hill on the way back (if you are not used to them), so we actually took a slightly longer route back each time that was of a more gentle incline and actually made us see more of the little streets that we would not necessarily seen otherwise.
BIG TIP. If the Hypogeum is on your to do list, if possible book online in advance, check as soon as you are thinking of travelling to Malta as the summer season it can be booked nearly 3 months in advance. Otherwise, it's a matter of queuing at the Museum of fine arts in Valletta to be in with a chance of nabbing tickets for the following day. The place opens at 9am but the queue tends to start from anywhere between 5.45 to 6.15.
Personally, I preferred the temples of Hagar Qim to the Hypogeum, they are amazing structures and with the most stunning sunset if you are there in the afternoon.
Mosta dome, Rabat (try out St Agatha's catacombs), Mgarr with the hidden treasure that is the air raid shelters accessed via Il Barri restaurant were all good days out.
We thought of hiring a car but after 3 days we decided against it, patience, indication and obeying they road signs is not high on the list for Maltese drivers. The bus system works well but if you are doing the south of the island, pretty much everything has to go via Valletta.
Gozo is also a must but if you are going, make sure you have a plan, if like us you don't, you get hounded when getting of the ferry with no idea what is the best deal. The buses are not so frequent and everything has to go via the capital, so seeing lots of sights in one day is not really going to happen via public transport.
Other than that, the Maltese are extremely friendly, the sandy beaches are great (all except the inaptly named Pretty Bay), food is lovely.
