Ta Drinu luxury character house

Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
Zabbar, Island of Malta
Set in an alley, this house has been renovated in an elegant way, yet keeping all of its charm and character that have been tied to it from the days it was built around 400 years ago. Walking about 50 metres into the alley one finds Ta' Drinu, and on entering the house, one finds a small yard with plants and a water feature. Upon entering the house one finds himself in a 42 square meter living room with round sofa, jacuzzi, and 46 inch LED TV. Next to this room is a separate dining room, a well equipped kitchen, and a shower room. A staircase from the living room leads to the bedroom with en suite shower and a 50 square meter roof terrace with garden, outdoor sofa, dining table for 4 and BBQ

About the neighbourhood
The area is of a typical Maltese village. In St James square just down the alley there is a bakery, confectionery, butcher, pharmacy, cafeteria etc. Within 2 minute walk there is also the bus stage.
Every Saturday there is the village open market.
Getting around
Bus service is nearby, a 30 minute bus trip can take you to Valletta. Or else you may opt to walk to Birgu waterfront and from there you may get the boat across the grand harbour. Take the lift to Barakka gardens and you will be in Valletta.
However we would recommend to get a car rental as you would be more flexible.
Nearest restaurants are at Birgu waterfront and Marsascala.
