Maple Farm is set among farm land - but is not a farm!! About 20mins from the airport just outside Rabat and Mdina. It is a well presented, single storey, 6 bedroomed property, each room with en suite shower room. The rooms are all new, oak furniture with writing table and coffee/tea making facilities. The breakfast/sitting room is equally well equipped. Breakfast is en buffet with selection of fruit juices, cereals, fresh fruit, meats, cheeses and breads and spreads. Boiled eggs, soft or hard, are offered. Coffee and tea is available. Outside is a lovely pool and sitting area around with gazebo - swimming towels are ready at the asking. The property is very secure with electronic gates. The owners, Charles and Anna, leave nothing to chance and are very attentive to every need. Charles will offer an afternoon (4pm to 7pm) tour of the area, including his vineyard and olive grove - great to be drinking his wine as it grows dark! The cultural city of Mdina ( the Silent City) is only a few minutes drive away, as is Rabat, with their many restaurant choices. A car is an essential "have" together with a satnav, since the roads are poorly signposted often. However, there is a good and cheap bus service run by Malta Transport, which runs rather like a spider's web from and into Valletta, and the bus stops are not far from Maple farm. Mdina and Valletta are not to be missed experiences. Sandy beaches are to be found at Golden Bay (NE of the island) and Mellieha on its East coast. There is a car/passenger ferry from the very North across to Gozo, which is another not to be missed day trip - free to Gozo but pay to come back: €29.50 for car and driver and 3 passengers. We love Malta and have visited almost every year for the last 15 years but usually stay at a different place each time. Maple Farm would be an excellent choice for its welcome, peace and its comfort.
