Best neighbourhood to live in

Postby pentae » Mon 05 May 2014 07:34

Hey everyone,

I'm looking at relocating to Malta under the global residency programme and will be visiting Malta for the first time in 2 months.


- 2 or 3 bedroom apartment with water views
- Super fast internet
- High end neighbourhood
- Walking distance to restaurants, bars, nightlife, a high end gym

Would it be St Julians or would this be too touristy as a place to live?

I've been using the online real estate tools and it seems most places are historic/older buildings or new developments in what appears to be undesirable areas (based on my criteria)

If anyone could offer their advice it would really help with my research.

Thanks :)

Hi, and welcome to the forum :-)

St Julians and Sliema, and maybe Valletta.
