Malta’s storied capital has an intriguing history spanning 16th-century knights, British naval communities and lavish religious architecture; it’s a uniformly beautiful city that’s been a Unesco World Heritage Site since 1980. Renting an apartment in Valletta means you’re free to move at your own pace, whether that’s breakfasting on a balcony in the old town, looking out at architectural flourishes and church rooftops, taking a siesta before a night out on the town, or getting out and meeting the locals in residential streets…

In the heart of the old town, surrounded by a trio of pretty churches, Paulos is a cavernous stone mansion peppered with antique furniture, burnished picture frames and colourful painted tiles. Its handful of light, bright rooms sleep between two and four people. Simply furnished but tasteful, some have sofas, kitchenettes and balconies for self-catering space. A hot breakfast of bacon, eggs and crêpes goes above and beyond the usual continental spread.
