Malta’s small size means it’s easy to get around and you’re never too far from where you need to be, but deciding where to rent a property is nevertheless a very important decision, and one of the first things to consider when you start your search.
Central areas around Sliema, Swieqi, Gżira and St Julian’s are very popular with young professionals and offer a cosmopolitan lifestyle with a range of great bars, restaurants and shops, as well as proximity to many major businesses. You’ll find a range of one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments to rent, many in modern developments and ranging from luxury seafront properties to more affordable options, as well as maisonettes, townhouses and terraced houses.
If you’re looking for something less fast-paced, renting a property in one of the many towns in the western and southern parts of the island will offer all the amenities you need but in less hectic surroundings, usually with more affordable prices and still within easy commuting distance of all major areas.
You might choose to rent a property in Malta close to the sea or the countryside, or in the heart of a traditional town or village. From a seaside apartment in Mellieħa or Bugibba to a traditional village property in Rabat, Żebbuġ or Siġġiewi, the choices are limitless.
If you’re really looking to get away from the hustle and bustle, renting a property in Gozo could also be an option, with beaches and country walks on your doorstep, and beautiful farmhouses and apartments to rent.
