A very nice bed and breakfast. Aldo the owner is very nice and will help you in anything you want. Breakfast is served on the roof terrace and was exactly what you expect but with a great view. Room was spotlessly clean.
Kalkara is a little quiet in March, but there was a hospitable welcome in the couple of bars nearby. Valletta is only 30 minutes away on a bus stop only 200 metres from the Villa Del Porto. After spending some time in the " touristy areas", glad we picked this B&B.
It's real Malta and the views are fantastic.
One tip though, if you hire a car, expect the unexpected, but do it anyway it's a great way to see the wonderful Malta.
Valletta might be the capital city, but was far from hectic after dark, the Waterfront area was a good place to eat out at night, but never busy.
It's a small country but my 4 days wasn't nearly enough to do it justice. Enjoy Malta and do it from the Villa del Porto. It's very good. Thanks Aldo you were a very good host.
