Malta would be perfect for your Christmas Holiday.

I have spent the last 13 christmases there in the Topaz Hotel in St Pauls Bay ( next to Bugibba )

There are lots of single people of both sexes come during winter and soon mix in ( if they want to )

There are lots of good walks and with all it`s history Malta would be a good choice.

As for where to stay it depends what you are lookink for . I stay where i do because it is very friendly and a lot of the same people seem to meet up every year. As I stay for a long time -- 3 months -- then price is important but if you are only staying a shorter time then there are some more upmarket hotels , but they are not usually so friendly.

The Maltese people really celebrate Christmas so there is a great atmosphere and the hotels lay on a good Christmas dinner .

Come and enjoy Malta.

By the way .

If you mean over 40 when you say the wrong side this is incorrect .

Over 40 is the RIGHT SIDE ----- Got it ????

That`s told you !!!!

Lots of bargains for stays in winter in Malta. I am on the wrong side of 50 and believe that Malta is one of the safest places to take a holiday , anywhere in this side of the planet .

People are friendly and you can go into a bar and make friends the first night if you are in the right mood !

Christmas is celebrated in all hotels with gala dinners and parties late into the next morning !

Better by far than Marrakesh IMHO .

If in doubt get a cheap ticket and come over for a weekend getaway , before deciding !

Welcome to Malta

to spend that long there would be lovely but not sure work would be so keen! after being re-born [singleised] i have loved travelling but have to agree that i now realise upmarket hotels do not mix well with a single female who likes to get to know the locals if possible. just planning to be there for a week or so if i can manage it. so would be good to meet up maybe if i choose your favoured area. thanks for the help!

it does seem to cater for all ages. my father loved it [in his 70's], my nephew loves it [20] and i like to try diferent places and experience culture. i like the balls etc but have sometimes found it a struggle in the top hotels to mix as people seem to look down their noses at a single female 40 something as if i'm on the prowl.!

it does sound like a friendly place though if i get my hotel right!

thanks

As I said the Topaz is very friendly and I am sure you would feel at home.

Try ringing Freephone 08000917792 and speak to Vicky from Malta choice.

They always have some good deals but there always tends to be a premium for Xmas and New Year.

The English ex-pats community hold various celebrations during the Christmas season.. Even if you are not religious the carol service is enjoyable
