About Vince Briffa

I live in Pieta' with my wife Laura and dog Droopy. I am an artist and I lecture at the University of Malta. I love to meet people, travel, read, great food and wine and also I love to immerse myself in anything that is cultural and artistic.

Why Vince Briffa chose Pieta

We love Pieta' as it is so central and yet cut off from the main cities of Valletta and Sliema. Bus stop to Valletta and the central bus station is two blocks away. A ten minute walk away there is a beautiful rocky beach and the Ta' Xbiex marina boasts excellent bars and restaurants. There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible from the airport by public transport or taxi.

What makes this house unique

The property is in the middle of any activity you would want to do, be it the beach, night life, bars and restaurants and also snorkelling and diving. It is also a bus ride away from Malta's main cultural, historic and pre-historic temple sights. We provide beach towels so you can travel light and make the most of your holiday in Malta and Gozo. We also provide leaflets to help you with easy travelling to your preferred sites on the island.

Maltese Townhouse Centrally Situated Between Valletta And Sliema
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

We had a really enjoyable time on Malta and really should have planned a longer trip than 3 days.

  • 4 of 5

Vince's house was lovely. Well located and very practical for us with some interesting art work on the walls. The property only contains single beds and a cot which I guess covers most things. Malta is a fascinating place to visit. Warning, do not use Aquarius Car Rental they are a rip off. We ended up paying 5 times the price we were quoted with all the ad ons.

Wonderful little town house near Valletta

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful little town house in Pieta very close to Valletta. (approx 20 mins walk) and once in Pieta most of the buses going through here terminate at Valletta also.

With two bedrooms (one downstairs and one upstairs), offered adequate privacy for our visit.

The owners Vince and Laura were very helpful in providing information for us with their local knowledge, i.e. where to eat, bus stops, local shops.

Many thanks to Vince and Laura for making our stay in Malta enjoyable.

Lovely property with fantastic hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with our teenage son. The owners were fantastic. We were met at the airport as promised by Laura, which was a lovely gesture. On arriving at the apartment, she gave us a tour of the area we were staying in, showing us the shops, best way to the Marina and recommendations for places to eat. (Mamma Mia's is scrummy - but portions are very generous - so beware!)

This apartment was ideal for us, having two good sized bedrooms. It was clean and very spacious and the kitchen had everything you would need to make some good meals. However, when on holiday we prefer to eat out and there are some wonderful places in Valletta (around 10 -15 mins walk).

We tried everything from pasta to soul food..never a bad meal.

The weather was not good while we were there (rain at some point almost every day) but that didn't stop us from having a great holiday. A trip to the island of Gozo and The War Rooms in Valletta are a must.

I have to make a special mention about our last day - The taxi we had booked to take us to the airport failed to turn up (Hoppa) and we were obviously in a great flap. Without hesitation, Laura and Vince helped us out and took us to the airport personally. Without them. I am almost sure we'd have missed our flights. We cannot thank them enough. They went above and beyond to help us out. So if I were to answer the question - "Did they provide good customer service?" I would have to say 200% YES!

I would recommend this apartment to all! Thank you again for a wonderful stay Laura and Vince.

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

We had a weeks stay at this apartment and the place was spotless . The kitchen was very well appointed and we made some smashing evening meals. The location allows you to see the locals enjoying island life and the surrounding cafes and restaurants reflect local prices. The apartment was very well priced, you cannot do better.

We had a great stay and would recommend this location , this owner , this ideal spot to enjoy Malta .

The owners were helpful and friendly and enhanced our visit .
