Thank you Aldo for making us feel very welcome. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, in your expertly designed apartment. We've stayed in many places and the attention to detail here is secondary to none. The location is also fantastic - so different from anywhere we've experienced. We shall recommend this place to all our friends.

Guy & David | September 2015

We have had a wonderful holiday in your fabulous apartment. Birgu is the perfect location for visiting the rest of the islands. 30 mins by bus to Valletta or 20 mins by water taxi and the lift to the top.

Thank you for the welcome pack which got our holiday off to a great start. Thank you John for your help when we needed it and looking after us so well. Should we return to Malta this would be our number one choice and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others. Maybe see you again in 2018!

Les & Di | July 2015

A wonderful 3 days in Birgu thanks to your wonderful apartment. A designer's hand all over it which made it a joy to inhabit! Will tell our friends in Australia who I am sure will seek out this opportunity.

John, thank you fir your liaison – made life so much easier. Cheers.

Johanne & Derek | June 2015

Our first visit to this gem of an island. We fell in love with Birgu and its history and wandering around its fascinating lanes. This gorgeous apartment is a sanctuary to return to after exploring Valletta and Mdina where there are hordes of tourists. The bakery closed for good a few days before our arrival but there is a van which sells bread near / on the square at about midday daily. It's worth doing a day trip to Gozo to discover delicious Gozitan food and wine! John an Lorraine were extremely welcoming and helpful.

Berenice and James | April/May 2015

This was our first visit to Malta and what a brilliant choice. The location is perfect away from the busier areas of the islandbut just a bus ride, ferry or water taxi to explore further away. We loved ID with its stylish decor and so many interesting pieces of art/design. Some new item to discover everyday. Very comfortable and a lovely place to return to at the end of the day.

Birgu has to be one of the best places full of history, amazing balconies, windows and doorways which I have taken photos of (most of them). You have to go out at the right time to discover the local shops. The bakery had us fooled for a while but eventually we discovered the delicious bread. Also the fruit and vegetable van that daily appears at the end of the street.

We have had a brialliant time, enjoying the weather, learning about Malta's rich and varied history, loving its beautiful buildings and enjoying walks around both city and countryside. We hope to return soon. Thank you Aldo for sharing your amazing home and thank you Lorraine and John for your warm welcome and lifts to and from the airport.

Caroline and Barry | April 2015

Our first time in Malta and. looking around the rest of the island, we realised that we had made a great choice in Birgu and in Indulgence Divine. Beautiful walks, friendly people, lovely food and an all round great experience. ID is a lovely retreat to return to each evening. Very calm, safe and peaceful with lovely Spring colours and nice facilities. Thanks for the warm welcome to Malta.

Gillian and Nick | April 2015

Dear Aldo,

Our first trip to Malta but we will be back! Everything in this fabulous house was perfect! And many thanks to John who helped us so much on our arrival.

Peter and Karen | April 2015

Wonderful house - felt very special to have stayed here. I can only admire the attention to detail that has gone into it all. In particular - great shower and great coffee. Birgu itself is a beautiful place to stay, but still easy to get to Valletta or around the rest of the island. As a place to escape for a few days, Birgu and Indulgence Divine have been wonderful. I hope to be back (and will recommend to everyone I can think of!)

Special thanks to John - and also for the welcome pack which was a lovely treat.

Ann | March 2015

Indulgence Divine provides a perfect base from which to explore the many delights of Malta. Birgu is the most attractive and historical location and you are generous in sharing your beautiful home with us, Aldo. Thank you to Lorraine and John for their support and kindness. With very best wishes..

Sue and John | March 2015

This was our second visit to ID and familiarity certainly doesn't breed contempt here! It's such a relaxing place to stay - as is Birgu itself, which has changed a lot in the 18th months since we were last here. The completion of the waterfront has made such a difference. Many thanks to Ray for looking after us again and for the warm welcome. Very best wishes for the future. Thanks also to Josephine. And last but not least to Aldo for the opportunity to stay in this wonderful house (again).

Jackie and Keith | October 2014

Our first stay in Malta and what a lovely place to stay! We are so happy to be in Vittoriosa - so beautiful and so packed with history. Hope to be back soon.

Ray was so helpful we wish him well for his future plans.

Lisa & Mal | October 2014

Our 3rd visit to ID, which is becoming a home from home for us! Thanks again to Ray for the warm welcome and the welcome treats. We were fortunate to be able to meet Aldo for a coffee during our stay and told us it was Ray's last month - we will miss him. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay as always - here for all of Birgu Fest this time. The town is so very pretty in the candlelight.

Got to see the Blue Grotto this trip - well worth a visit. Impressed with all the developments going on around the area - lovely to be able to walk orund to Senglea this time. Water taxi service to Valletta (just past Bacino's Cafe/restaurant) is good value for money and so much quicker than the bus. Hope to be back again next year too!

Vivien & Ken | October 2014

Thank you Aldo for opening your wonderful home to us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and in Malta. Hopefully we can return one day to stay again at I.D. We really loved Osteria VE across the road run by Stefano and Thomas.

Both my mother and father were born in Malta but immigrated to Canada at a young age. Neither decided to return to visit and this has been taken up by the various nephews and nieces. This is our first visit and we have thoroughly enjoyed it. It has been a great experience to see the heritage and beautiful sights of Malta. I certainly hope that our son and daughter will take the opportunity to visit Malta and see the beautiful country where their nanu and nana lived.

Gary and Penny | September 2014

First stay in Malta (Jen had been briefly previously). I was incredibly impressed. I.D. is in an ideal location and has everything required for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Its cenversion really worked to our tastes!

Birgu is fantastic - We wouldn't have wanted to be based anywhere else. The 5 minute water taxi to Valletta opens this area up but we found the history, calm and friendliness of Birgu delightful. We would come back to Malta and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else but Birgu and ID. Many thanks.

Paul and Jen | September 2014

Enchanted by this wonderful apartment! Made an inspiring base for a busy 5 days in which we had the added bonus of enjoying Birgu during the weekend of the feast of St. Dominic!

Thanks for all the little touches of artwork and information that made our short stay all the more pleasurable. Will recommend I.D. and would love to return some day.

Marcus and Althea | August 2014

Our apprecaition of staying at Indulgence Divine and in Birgu grew asthe week went on. I.D. is a relaxing quiet and comforatble place to stay. Birgu is steeped in history and heritage. We've had a lovely week in Malta.

Joann and Simon | August 2014

This holiday, our first in Malta, has been wonderful. I.D. has contributed hugely to that. The accommodation is perfect for two people, tastefully furnished and comfortable. Thank you so much Aldo, and of course Raymond for the friendly cheerful introduction to Malta, Birgu and our house. We've loved staying here! Thank you again.

Sarah and Robert | August 2014

This stay was beyond our most positive expectations, apart from the beautiful and creative setting, whose new esthetic details were discovered every day (like the guestbook's design today!), we appreciated the well-organised setting, very peaceful and harmonious energies. For our honeymoon we could not have had anything more gorgeous than thi. Thank you for the welcome pack and Raymond's friendly pick-up, and for having thought of everything to make our visit an untmost pleasure.

Maria and Patrick | July 2014


What a wonderful experience... loved the quirks and decor, so creative and great use of space. No mirrors yeahhh! The history, the colour made our stay very special. Vittoriosa is a great place, best way to travel to Valletta is by water taxi.The temples are amazing - older than Stonehenge - Tarxien, Hagar Qim and Mnajdra. The Archeology Museum is worth a look in Valletta. In Vittoriosa, The Maritime Museum has the oldest ever found wooden Roman anchor. Thank you for your hospitality and warm welcome and greeting. You have a unique place and we shall certainly spread the word.

Manuela and Ian | May 2014

We stayed only two days in this unique house unfortunately, but now we're spending the rest of our stay at Valletta G-House hoping it'll be as great as I.D. We would like to thank Raymond for his warm welcome and for the welcome basket. We shall continue our visit in Malta till 30 April 2014, we love this place. Definitely we shall recommend this place to our friends. Thank you again for everything!

Florentine and Remus | April 2014

Had a lovely stay in ID particularly liked Birgu - so much history. Infact spent most of our time exploring Valletta and the Three Cities and one day in Mdina/Rabat. Thank you for the welcome pack and transport to and from the airport. Much appreciated.

Angelina and Lyn | April 2014

Wow. What a place! Totally unique, with a new discovery everytime you come "home" from roaming the delights of Malta. I.D. has made our holiday; from the very warm welcome by Ray, the excellent hamper prepared by him and Josephine - to the grand entrance when we first walked in. Can't thank Aldo enough and can not wait to come back!

Chris and Helen | March 2014

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful, stylish house. This was our first visit to Malta and we were very impressed especially by Birgu and everything else we experienced on Malta. The Hypogeum was fascinating and we learnt to understand Malta's history more by visiting the Museum of Archeology in Valletta before our visit there. The welcome basket was very welcome - a splendid idea - and all the other tips and extras provided. Unfortunately the weather was not too great - it was cool and rainy much of the time but the sun always came through for a while. We very much enjoyed our stay here and hope to come again. Thank you.

Harriet and Gerhard | Februray/March 2014

We were very pleased to spend the end of the year 2013 in this splendid house full of history, full of interior art. Valletta, Birgu are pleasant to visit in this time of year. Nice restaurants and very gentle people.

We thank especially Ray for his disponibility and kindness. Indulgence Divine, we will keep a great souvenir of our stay.

Philip and Dominique | December 2013

Congratulations Aldo on your creation. And thank you for your generous gift pack and Raymond's warm welcome. We treated I.D. as we would our own lovely home in Australia. Your taste and flair really create a wonderful environment. This is my first visit to Malta and I just adore this beautiful part of it, steeped so deeply in its rich history. My wife is of Maltese parents, however through circumstance this is only my first visit but certainly not my last. I hope to be back with my wife in one or two years, and hope we can spoil ourselves at I.D., due thankfully to you. Vittoriosa is a rich tapestry of all things beautiful, including its food, its wine and, most of all, its people, Bravo Malta.

Alan and Mary | November 2013

I was born here (in Malta) but live in Australia and have been returning to Malta every 2 years for 17 years or so. This is my first visit to Birgu and won't be my last! It's a gem of a place, magical by night, beautiful by day. I just can't wipe the smile off my face.

Indulgence Divine is a wonderful haven and not only is it well designed and beautiful, it is also functional, everything acttually works, not always the case in Malta ! Thank you Raymond and Aldo, I have so enjoyed the fruits of your hard work, to relax and be surrounded by beautiful things in such a peaceful place has been a joy. I look forward to returning, for longer next time. Grazzi ħafna.

Mary | October 2013

This was our first visit to Malta, but we have fallen in love with it and Gozo and will certainly be back. ID is a wonderful creation and definitely luxurious when compared to the rustic charm of our Gozitan farmhouse last week. It has been the perfect base to explore Birgu and further afield from and we loved the setting. Thank you to Raymond for the warm welcome and for the treats in the welcome pack. We loved the details such aa the Trim phone and would love to know the history of the ship graffiti in the corner by the bed, as it is similar to that in the prison on Gozo and here in the Inquisitor's Palace. Thank you, we will be back.

Sue & Dave | October 2013

Our second stay at Indulgence Divine - a few changes with the introduction of air conditioning and new artwork, but still lives up to its name! Sad we could only be here for a week this time - but we've had such a wonderfully relaxing time - we will be back again! Pity we were only here for the first of the three days of BirguFest but that was great fun.

Thanks again to Ray for the warm welcome at the airport - it was like coming home! Lovely treats in the welcome pack on arrival - thank you. Great to see the progress made with the city's restoration work - we look forward to being able to walk around the waterside to Senglea next time!

Vivien & Ken | October 2013

Such a fantastic place to stay. Everything has been so carefully thought out - practical as well as beautiful! Fantastic location - it was always a joy to relax at the end of the day at Indulgence Divine. We hope to come back very soon. Very best wishes,

Jane & Miles | September/October 2013

We have really enjoyed our time in Birgu and in I.D. Had all the ingredients of a relaxing and interesting holiday. The house was an experience in itself and the mixture of old and new was fun. The ease of eating out was wonderful and unfortunately we haven't managed to eat in at all! If we'd had more time would loved to have gone back to Tal-Petut - maybe next time.

Judith & Rob | September 2013

We had a great time in Malta! We loved Indulgence Divine with all its nice and thoughtful details - the buscuits, the coffee, the little booklets with all the recommendations...

Many thanks to Raymond for the nice welcome!

Mara & Jan | August 2013

Dear Aldo + Ray, Thanks for all! I.D. is a beautiful alternative to standard hotels. We really appreciated our stay in this "havre de paix." We felt at home from the first moment. We will recommend it to our friends. Cheers!

PS.1: The pomegranates jam was great!

PS.2: Still wondering if the white bar near the stairs could be used for pole dance.

Emira & Samuel | July 2013

We've had a wonderful time... the house and the location are impressive with their unique, historical ambience... We can't thank you enough for your heartfelt hospitality and for thinking of every little detail. Just as big a thanks also to Raymond for his warmth and openness - the perfect host and contact person!"

Birke & Frank | June 2013

Dear Aldo, A.L.D.O. Thank you for the priviledge of a single night in the most unique homestead this side of the Mississippi. We enjoyed our time so thoroughly and wish to remember it forever, so we have agreed to name our eventual pet, be it a dog, cat or other creature Indulgence Divine. Thank you. Never forget. Never. Ever.

K & C | June 2013

Really enjoyed our beautiful surroundings and in particular the mix of historic and contemporary and jewel like colour furnishings/glass.

Definitely a taster for us to return to Malta - a good location for my husband to meet with business clients. Enjoyed the beautiful theatre in Valletta. Water taxi/ferry services very easy to use. Although we only had a few days we captured the flavour and found the locals very friendly and helpful - will return for sure.

Best food - The Medina, Mdina and Palazzo Preca, Strait Street, Valletta. Raymond made us very welcome, our thanks to him and Aldo for suggesting ID as a possible alternative for our short trip.

Celia & Steve | May 2013

We have had a great holiday here. The atmosphere is so relaxing. The location in the heart of historic Birgu lived up to expectations. The house itself is a happy marriage of old and new. From the first moment we felt at home. For a wekk we completely forgot about the world.

Thanks to Ray for his very warm welcome and advice about where to catch the buses.

Steve & Mary | April 2013

We have thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay at Indulgence Divine. Ray was very welcoming at the airport and the transfer much appreciated. As other guests have commented, it is obvious that an enormous amount of time, care and attention has gone into creating I.D., even down to the little touches like the professional looking notices containing helpful information/directions, and the I.D. branded towels!

The roof terrace is a delight to sit and enjoy the sunshine. I.D.'s proximity to all that Birgu has to offer, including the Square, waterfront, bars, restaurants and shops, couldn't be better. Birgu is full of charm and history and we shall definitely be recommending I.D. to our friends and family. Many thanks.

Charlie & Rebecca | March/April 2013

Wow, what a great week - we have loved I.D. and Vittoriosa. Our first trip to Malta - we've really enjoyed getting to know the history of the island and exploring its various delights. We arrived to find the labour party had won a landslide and got caught up in the huge crowds celebrating for Mr Muscat in Valletta. Midweek, a new pope in Rome - More celebration.

Sadly, today England lost to Wales in Cardiff and failed to secure the Grand Slam. Oh well, just have to down another Cisk to drown our sorrows at d'Centre*. Thanks Aldo for a great intro to Malta.

John & Richard | March 2013

*dCentre is a wine bar/diner/café in Vittoriosa.

Definitely a place to stay if you are after somewhere quirky, quiet and classy whilst on holiday. The welcome pack is very much welcome, very practical and such a nice gesture. Overall, "you get what it says on the brochure!"

Tess & Jim | March 2013

Schon auf der Website hatte ich den Eindruck, Indulgence Divine sei ein kleines Kunstwerk. Das Original bestätigte die Erwartung.

Daneben ist die Wohnung zweckmässig und grosszügig eingerichtet; die Tipps früherer Besucher waren hilfreich, ebenso wie die Hinweise von Aldo.

Ray danke ich für die sehr freundliche Unterstützung. Malta bietet reichlich Kultur für eine Woche, in Gozo habe ich herrliche Landschaft angetroffen. Die Menschen habe ich als freundlich und hilfsbereit erlebt. Nur Bus fahre ich immer noch nicht gerne.

Thomas | February 2013

Had a lovely time at Indulgence Divine. We will return to Malta.

Sandra & Terry | November 2012

We can only reiterate what others have said before - Indulgence Divine is unique. We loved Birgu - quiet and relaxing yet lots to do and see. We were fortunate to be here for the Birgu Fest. truly memorable. We don't really want to go home!

Thank you to Aldo for the great tips and other information. Thank you to Ray for the very warm welcome and lovely treats on arrival and for helping during our stay. We will definitely come back.

Vivien & Ken | October 2012

We had a very relaxing time here. The house is well thought out + Birgu is a great location. Would definitely recommend to friends wishing to visit Malta. Thanks.

Alan & Nestor | October 2012

We had a wonderful week in this irresistibly, indulgent, deliciously divine house. We love the use of colour and fabrics and the way the sunlight moves around the house. Such a lovely townhouse, in an area which is laid-back and relaxing. Having stayed in Valletta before - this is a much more relaxing location. Thank you to Raymond for the pick-up and the welcome treats - much appreciated. Had not visited Birgu before so a great place just to wander and explore / eat & drink! Thank you Aldo - we will return.

Ruth & Tim | September 2012

This has been our 4th trip to Malta and we have stayed previously in Aldo's house in Valletta - the 'G-House'. We thought that was brilliant and recommended staying there to everyone. However you have moved to a new level Aldo with ID!! Where did you source those lights? A lovely place to stay.

This was a relaxing, and extremely hot, stay. We still went to new places and it was interesting to revisit familiar ones - The Inquisitor's Palace is undergoing renovation, Malta at War is a gem of a museum. The Hypogeum was not restored on previous visits and we booked ahead - a wonderful insight, and a mystery, about Malta's past. Loved the Tate restaurant - a treat for Ed, as a vegetarian. All restaurants are excellent. Eventually found the bakery - worth the search!

Thanks for all the friendly help from Raymond, expecially attending to a sudden plumbing problem!

Cath & Edwin | September 2012

A great place to stay in order to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We have really enjoyed our time in Malta and Birgu in particular. We have eaten out and also enjoyed eating in with excellent meat bought from the butcher next door, a morning bread from the bakery (which took some finding) and olives from behind the counter at the Malaya store (you have to ask!).

Thank you for the warm welcome and for allowing us to stay in such a unique place - we are suitably indulged!

Stephen & Kate | September 2012

We absolutely loved our stay in Malta and especially at Indulgence Divine. The decor, architecture and finishing touches (colour schemes and fab furnishings) are superb! Thank you to Raymond for the welcome pick-up and also the treats on arrival. We had a wonderful time exploring Birgu and the island and hope to be back soon. Thank you for the divine experience.

Wes & Mike | August 2012

'Ars longa, vita brevis' - 'Art is long, Life is short' - Hyppocrates once said. It was a wonderful experience to stay at Indulgence Divine. The artistic touch present in every detail here made us feel at home in a very special way and forget how fast the time passes.

Matthias & Oana | August 2012

We had a really nice summer vacation at "your" Maltese home. The architecture as well as the interior details are well chosen and cool in the same place. Thanks a lot for the treats at the beginning and the very appreciated pick-up service. I was always nice to come "back home" at the end of a very hot and sometimes tiring day on the road. Keep this place as special as it is!

Best regards,

Jérôme & Romana | August 2012

We had a fantastic time staying in Indulgence Divine! We are on our honeymoon and my husband booked this house as a surprise. It couldn't have been any better! Thank you very much for the lovely welcome and the beautiful fizzy wine. Best wishes,

Katherine & Luke | July 2012

Dear Katherine and Luke, thank you for your kind comments. May you have a most wonderful life together. Gattaldo

A lovely week spent in Indulgence Divine. It is an excellent place as a base - lovely to come home to after a day out. We did not get out as much as planned because of the very very hot weather. Vittoriosa is a great place to walk through - we also enjoyed Valletta, visiting twice. The roof terrace was good once the sun moved to give shade. ID was spotless and we thank you for a warm welcome.

Norma & Stanley | July 2012

Dear Norma and Stanley, It has been a rather hot summer so far. We always suggest following the example of the locals and staying in for the afternoon, then staying out late in the evening when the heat hits. You will have noticed we're training a climbing plant over the structure on the roof. Eventually it will provide the much needed shade. Its pink flowers will add more colour too. Gattaldo

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Indulgence Divine - a lovely bolt hole to escape the heat. Recommend the bus service. Despite what the locals say, we found it mostly reliable... a few erratic timings - just arrive early and be prepared to wait.

Mdina/Rabat - excellent - good restaurant Medina within citywalls.

Marsaxlokk - beautiful (don't look at the power station) - not as breezy as we hoped - ate at Pisces. Very good.

Valletta - good breeze in Upper Barracca Gardens. Casa Rocca Piccola is worth visiting.

Vittoriosa - just wandering about is great. Thanks to Raymond for his warm welcome.

Alastair & Jane | June 2012

We had an amazing stay in this wonderful house! It was a fantastic base and when we were married in Valletta during our week here it was fabulous to come out of this house dressed up!

Birgu is the most beautiful location and we couldn't have asked for a better location to centre our wedding around. Thank you so much for the treats you left us, they were perfect too. Off to Sicily today for our honeymoon but feel sad to leave ID!!

Maxine & Brian | June 2012

We have enjoyed our stay at I.D. very much. The house is fabulous and funky! And of all the places we visited in Malta, Vittoriosa was our preferred location. It's a beautiful town. We will return!

Tracy & Joe | June 2012

Dreams come true. It was a 12 days joy to stay in Indulgence Divine.

Gaby & Anton | May 2012

Thoroughly enjoyed our time here, sitting on the terrace at the end of a day's sightseeing and/or after our evening meal, enjoying a wine or bacardi or 2! Wall to wall sunshine. Found all restaurants we tried in Vittoriosa more than acceptable. Many thanks to Ray for welcome and for sorting out my wi-fi problem. We will definitley recommend to friends coming to Malta.

Ray & Margaret | May 2012

Thank you Aldo, we have loved our week at I.D., even quirkier than we anticipated! The sunning terrace claiming our attention after long days out, exploring the delights of these beautiful islands. We loved Raymond's warm welcomeat the airport (mid-night and he was still cheery), the welcome pack and the week of Maltese sunshine!

Peter & Glenys | April 2012

Had a lovely relaxing week, but did a lot of walking, and made good use of the buses. Loved the surprise room. Would definately recommend it to friends. Thank you Aldo and Victor. Nice to meet you both.

Nitin & Diane | March 2012

Many thanks for the use of a fascinating apartment - and specially for the second heater. Many thanks to you and to Ray for this thoughtful an efficient service.

Tony & Helen | February 2012

We had a lovely week on the island and in the house - Thanks! The rainy days we spent in the numerous museums and the sunny ones exploring the various sites around Malta. Sadly, it was often warmer outside the Indulgence Divine than inside - next time we make sure to come in spring. :-)

But we are glad to have spent our Christmas week in this retreat rather than somewhere else!

Regula & Andreas | December 2011

Dear Regula and Andreas, We have now added one more heater so there is one for each floor. Gattaldo

Thank you for a "home away from home" during our stay in Malta! We enjoyed Mdina, Valletta & Vittoriosa. One favorite place to eat was Tate, along the Vittoriosa waterfront. Thank you again!

Karla & Carlos | November 2011

We've had a wonderful time at ID - relaxing, clean, perfect location and so elegant! We've enjoyed exploring Birgu, Valletta, Paola, Marsaxlokk etc + been fortunate with gorgeous weather for November.

Thanks for all your pre-arrival help - everything worked brilliantly + helpful welcome from Victor sorting out car permit etc. Loved the kitchen - v. well equipped + the welcome hamper stocked us well! A very enjoyable place to stay. Thank you!

David & Sarah | November 2011

A place for all senses,
a place for the soul!
Thank you very much for each detail.

Stefanie & Bernd | October 2011

We've had a great two weeks in Malta, and especially staying in Vittoriosa and Indulgence Divine, away from the bustle of the tourist resorts. Thanks to Victor for his warm greeting at the airport and also for all the information and goodies that were waiting for us when we arrived - great coffee! Hope to visit Malta again some day.

Claire & Derek | August 2011

Thank you for a lovely stay in Malta. The house was lovely and so well situated away from tourist areas. Particularly enjoyed the marina, Mdina, and the water taxis.

Kate & Steve | July 2011

From the pre-arrival information and emails, to Victor's warm and friendly greeting all the way through to leaving this beautiful apartment, our holiday has been amazing. Thank you. It is wonderful to stay surrounded by such style and comfort without being caught in the centre of a tourist trap. And yet, amazing eateries - Del Borgo and Riviera de Marina; the War museum and the beautiful architecture are only a stone's throw away. We had a wonderful time exploring the side streets and practicing our photography and equally enjoyed collapsing in the coolness of the apartment after a hot day about.

Marie-Claire & David | July 2011

We had a great time staying in Vittoriosa and sleeping amongst the old stones here at the apartment.Highlights were driving on the left side of the road (and living to tell about it), visiting Mdina at dusk, walking around the marina here and of course enjoying the roof terrasse and the secret *******. Merci et à bientôt.

Joshua & Catherine | June 2011

Staying in this beautiful apartment has been the highlight of our visit in Malta. Everything about it feels truly indulgent, as promised, and we can't wait to come back already! Thank you so much for being the perfect host and providing us with so many lovely touches to make it feel like a home from home and delicious nibbles that were very gratefully appreciated. Indulgence Divine: every bit as indulgent, utterly divine and wonderful as we hoped. Thank you.

PS. And thank you to Victor for the warm welcome and beaming smile. x

Sophie & Kris | June 2011

Thanks for a wonderful week in Malta. Vittoriosa, and the silent city Mdina were beautiful. We have been travelling around the island by bus. In Sliema, Ta' Kris restaurant served nice local food. But to stay in the apartment, with a bottle of wine, olives, grapes, local tomatoes, local onions, pasta and garlic butter and eat on the roof terrace, perfect! This is a place to recommend to all our friends! Thanks again!

Maria & Bernt | May 2011

What we've seen of Malta has been beautiful, however it was quite tricky to see more as we found it very difficult to leave this fantastic apartment! It was/is a perfect location and we love how well you have merged new and old.

Thank you for the welcome pack and all the little touches - best marmalade I've ever had! We're off back to Cambridgeshire to find an old chapel of our own...

Steph & James | May 2011

We have truly has a perfect holiday at Indulgence Divine. Thank you so much for creating such a marvellous place to stay. The little touches such as the welcome pack, information and of course Victor's collection made us feel at home straight away.

We have made the most of the info people have left and you provided and have explored as much as possible! We will be recommending this place to our family and friends and hope that future visitors enjoy this as much as we have.

Amy & Guy | April/May 2011

We had a wonderful stay! The house was a lovely surprise with a wonderful feel. We also experienced all that Birgu could offer with the tasty cafes and tourist attractions. An awesome added bonus was the Easter processions through the streets, very unexpected but quite inspiring. Thank you.

Lia & Mark | April 2011

Howdy Aldo, and Victor of course!

It's Hass and Jenny here bidding a very thankful farewell to you. The accommodation has been suitably indulgent and divine - we feel privileged to stay in such a place, at such a rate!

You've been very helpful in us finding out how to live like the Maltese - mucho thanks for the insider knowledge. Hope the space becomes very successful, we will be brand advocates for you :)

Hass & Jenny | January 2011

Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful colourful place. We could not have dreamt of a more ideal place to spend our honeymoon in Malta. We appreciate the warm welcome from Victor and the brochures and information provided at Indulgence Divine. We apprecaite the uniqueness of Birgu. Thanks again. We will remember this for years to come and hope to visit Malta again.

Ann & Adam | 27 November 2010

I'm sure it's the best luxury apartment in the whole of Malta. The location is excellent, the decor is wonderful. The apartment is lovely and comfortable. We were also very lucky as the Birgu Fest was during our stay here. We will come back to Malta! Many thanks and good luck.

Thank you for a most exquisite way of experiencing Malta in the context of the 21st century! We will always remember our time here fondly.

PS. Love all the details and surprises!

Thank you very much for your kindness and for giving us the possibility to be guests in your house, a perfect place to visit Malta and Comino. Today we're going to Gozo, where our accommodation is bound to pale into insignificance in comparison. It's a pity that WiFi internet doesn't work in these days we stay here, but with your useful information everything get on all right. See you soon... perhaps next year in your boutique house in Valletta.

Nous avons été séduits par la décoration de ce lieu. Une terrasse tres agréable le soir, pour profiter de la fraicheur marine. Nous avons apprécié la gentillesse de la population Maltais. Nous n'avons pas hésité à laisser de Coté les lieux touristiques pour plonger dans des endroits seuls fréquentés par les Maltais. Un grand merci à Victor pour son accueil et à Aldo pour toutes les informations tres utiles. PS. Merci pour la balle de Pilates!

Thank you very very much Aldo for introducing us to this beautiful little town of Birgu. We loved every second here. No question, we have to come back. And this week has been instrumental in getting us to discover Maltese wines, so we are leaving with 12 bottles of white Ulysses, Palatino and Odyssey rosé. All the best,

Dear Aldo, thank you for letting us share your beautiful home. Our intention was to have a "local Maltese experience" rather than the typical "tourist experience", and Indulgence Divine was the perfect Malta boutique accommodation to achieve that.

Getting up in the morning to get hot Maltese bread from the bakery, fruit and vegetables from the passing van, seating in the upper terrace with a glass of local wine and local produce from Del Borgo wonderful! Strolling in the evenings through the ancient streets of Birgu, eating at the Waterfront, just lovely!

Ron & Irene | 13 to 21 July 2010

Thank you Aldo and Victor - we've had a wonderful week. This boutique accommodation has been the perfect base from which to explore Malta; it's superbly situated - Birgu's restaurants and bars are great - and what's more it is beautiful (I think we might well need a secret library in Manchester...)

Ruth & Andy | 12 to 19 June 2010

We are glad to have been the first guests! We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful townhouse. We also loved the collection by Victor, the welcome pack, the reading room, the roof terrace, everything really. We ate across the street last night and it was lovely, we would recommend it. It is a pity the weather was not as wonderful as today but we still had a great time. Thanks again.
