If you’re lucky enough to have a healthy budget, you can buy a home almost anywhere in Malta. As with anywhere, some areas are more desirable than others. If you can get there before the developers you stand a good chance of getting a bargain too!

The following is a list of some of the most sought after places to live in:

San Gwann

San Gwann has slowly been growing in popularity, located in a central part of Malta it’s great to live in if you would like to reduce the time spent on your daily commute. Surrounded by valleys, you might be lucky enough to get a spot looking over the lush Maltese countryside. With a bit of both worlds San Gwann is certainly a great place to live!

Naxxar and San Pawl tat-Targa

Naxxar has recently become more developed, spreading out across the area whilst keeping its village-life mentality. The quaint village core is perfect if you’re looking for somewhere still linked to Maltese traditions, whilst the outskirts offer a modern touch.

San Pawl tat-Targa offers some truly breath-taking views of Malta and, if you’re lucky, even Gozo! Check out this area for a touch of luxury.


If you want to be closer to the sea why not try out Marsakala. Situated on the South East coast of the island you’ll be sure to have a gorgeous view of the rising sun. Buzzing with activity, but still quiet at night, it’s the perfect place to get away from the stress of everyday life!


If you’re looking for something rich in culture Birgu is the place for you! Being the original home of the Knights of Saint John, it’s riddled with historical buildings and boasts a beautiful view of the capital. Recent developments have put Birgu back on the real estate map. Great for someone who wants a more tranquil place to live. Birgu is sure to impress!


Attard is a stone’s throw away from all major localities, which makes it perfect for getting to work and back. Offering a variety of old and new houses, there will definitely be something within your budget! So consider Attard if you’re looking for the perfect place to settle down!


Last but not least is the World Heritage Site, Valletta. A city of knights, Valletta has now become the 2018 European City of Culture. Having undergone some renovation, including a new City Gate, Theatre, and House of Parliament, it now boasts mesmerising modern architecture alongside beautifully baroque wonders. All of this has woken the city up and it has once again opened its doors to residents. If you’d like to live the grand life and wake up to the beauty of Valletta each and every day then Valletta is perfect for you!
