Our guests are most fascinated by the stunning views you enjoy from the spacious terrace. An experience not to forget is standing high up on the terrace and look down over the old town and out to the sea. The origins of the house- out of an historical magazine. Let us move further into South street till we get to the corner with MA Vassalli street, before known as Scotts Street. In house No 9 lived the French Knight Dolomieu who owned a geological and natural history collection. When the French came to Malta this French Knight left with Napoleon to Egypt. When the French were kicked out of Malta the French Knight asked for his collection to be sent to France and the English General Graham obliged. Originally the house belonged to the family of the Knight De Budes and later another Knight, Francone (italian?) occupied the house. Later it was occupied by the former mentioned Dolomieu.

You are slightly off the main tracks in a quite area off into a pedestrian zone. The area is called upper Valletta. One of the best locations with the most stunning views.
Getting around
Travelling by bus is quite convenient in Malta and the Malta main bus stop is just outside Valletta. There are guided tourist buses that show the main tourist attraction of Malta.
