Facing a green area, this contemporary-chic apartment is well linked to Malta International Airport. The private bedroom has a bathroom, TV & air-condition. It has a common kitchen, dining & living areas with TV, laundry & a sunny yard. It is connected to the public transport, Hop on Hop off, beautiful villages & secluded beaches like St. Thomas, St. Peter's Pool, Marsaxlokk & Munxar. Valletta & Three Cities are also nearby. All historical places within Żejtun can be visited on foot.

The space
Among the main feasts in Żejtun, in June one can find the colourful feast of the Patroness Saint of the town, Saint Catherine of Alexandria. In Easter many enthusiasts organise one of the most beautiful and well-organised Good Friday Processions in Malta. It includes 12 masterly crafted life-size statues, two traditional band clubs playing ‘Marċi Funebri’ (Funeral marches) and hundreds of participants wearing biblical costumes. This is immediately followed by the feast of Saint Gregory, ushering the Summer season whereby locals opt for their first swim at the Ramla taż-Żejtun Bay or Marsaxlokk Bay. In September the town feasts Żejt iż-Żejtun, an event dedicated to the olive picking season, olive pressing and oil, but also the celebration of the rich cultural heritage of the place.

All historical sites in Żejtun are well-explained by means of modern metal plaques with information on the history of the building, coordinated by local NGO Wirt iż-Żejtun. These include the magnificent, baroque and monumental Żejtun Parish Church (renowned as the eastern cathedral) and its Museum, and the beautiful palaces and houses stretching from Carlo Diacono Square to St. Gregory Street. There is also the old medieval parish church, with its secret passages, old graffiti and primitive dome. Though it is dedicated to St. Catherine of Alexandria, it is commonly known as St. Gregory’s Church. Also, why not lose yourself in the old intertwining narrow streets of Ta’ Tavlin, Bisqallin and Ħal Tmikki (known as Raħal ta’ Fuq and Raħal t’Isfel) or visit rural chapels such as Saint Mary of Ħal Tmiem and St. Nicholas. We also advice a stop to Roger’s Bakery where you can find traditional cheesecakes (baked or raw) or Ta’ Barbetta for mouth-watering baked cakes. Then there is also Tunajja Bakery, a bakery where bread and Maltese-ftira (similar to pizza but made with bread dough) are still devotedly prepared in a wood-fired oven. For a more ethnographic experience, you can visit Ta’ Ġanna Bar. Every Sunday morning, locals meet in this bar to play ‘għana’ (Folk singing). In fact Żejtun is known as the folk’s singers’ town.

Other things to note
Private room is equipped with a TV that is connected to internet. Please ask James if you need service against a very minimal cost. A large internet TV is available in common living room and is free of charge.
