Malta Property For Sale
The beautiful republic of Malta, where a wide variety of Malta property for sale can be found, consists of an archipelago of seven islands located just south of Sicily in the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Only three of the islands are inhabited, and all offer a breathtaking array of Malta property for sale, from luxury apartments to beachside villas. These are Malta Island, the largest island of the archipelago; Gozo, also known as the mythical isle of Calypso, or ‘the place where time stood still’ due to its timeless natural beauty; and Comino, famous for its blue lagoon.
The islands with Malta property for sale consist of gently rolling hills (the highest point being Ta' Dmejrek at 830ft near Dingli on Malta Island), sun drenched terraced fields, and beautiful natural bays and harbours. The towns and villages that dot the hillsides are steeped in history, with ancient fortified walls, beautiful churches, and even temples built for long-forgotten gods. The climate of the islands consists of long dry summers and year round sunshine, the perfect climate, as voted by International Living in 2007, to rest and relax and enjoy your Malta property.
Malta’s location at the tip of Southern Europe not only provides the beautiful climate, but also accounts for the rich and diverse history and culture that is found on the islands. Their strategic position between Africa and Europe led to the islands, which have many lovely properties for sale (see below), being a focus for many civilisations and empires through the ages, all of which have left their mark on the islands. Not only are there many ancient fortifications and historic monuments scattered over the islands, but also a strong religious connection with many grand buildings combining beautiful architecture with historic importance. The islands are still staunchly Roman Catholic due to the shipwrecking of St Paul on the islands around 60AD, and there is a beautiful church or secluded chapel for every day of the year. Despite this, the laid back attitudes of the locals cater for all religions while offering a warm welcome to visitors viewing the churches and chapels or wishing to join in their vibrant local religious festivals – all of which can be enjoying not far from your own Malta property for sale.
The most recent culture to make its mark on Malta were the British, when the islands with became part of the British Empire in 1814 after the Treaty of Paris, ending the occupation of French forces under Napoleon. This has left a very British feel, with the official languages being both English and the native Maltese. English is widely spoken and is taught in schools as a primary language, while other common European languages are taught as foreign languages. Though the islands regained independence in 1964, many of the systems of government, schools and healthcare remain based on the British model (though the free-on-delivery health system is much more effective; ranked no. 5 by the World Health Organization, opposed to the UK’s own ranking of no.18). The islands are members of the Commonwealth and joined the EU in 2004, adopting the Euro currency in 2008.
Save the British, perhaps the biggest influence on the islands were the famous Knights of Malta, an order that ruled the islands for 250 years, and built many of the historic fortified towns and religious buildings. It is the symbol of this order, the famous Maltese Cross, that is synonymous with the islands. In addition, Malta, as a whole, was awarded the George Cross in 1942 in recognition of the bravery of its citizens in defending the islands from enemy attack during WWII. The flag of Malta still bears a replica of this in the upper right corner. The islands, with many Malta properties for sale, offer a true taste of Europe, with the Maltese culture drawing on the best of the many varied cultures that are intwined in its past. Popular dishes are ecclectic, with strong African, Indian and Italian influences. Likewise, a trip to the National Museaum of Fine Arts, housed in a breathtaking Rococo building dating from 1570, will yield many examples of all forms of art popular in Europe from the Renaissance to the present day, and the many theatres and open-air venues offer a huge variety of plays, concerts and musicals that cater for every concievable taste. It is extremely hard not to eat and drink well when you stay in your Malta property. From the host of restaurants selling w ... More
