Balzan is a quaint residential village right in the centre of the island. Together with Lija and Attard it comprises so-called Three Villages famous for its nice old villas with citrus gardens. Although Birkirkara is in the centre of Malta and is regarded as one of the quieter villages, however there are still some nice bars & restaurants in walking distance from the apartment, all within a 10 minute walk.
The apartment is found in Birkirkara's oldest neighborhood. It is surrounded by typical Maltese townhouses all of which dawning typical Maltese facades, with colourful balconies and intricate Maltese stonework. The city consists of four autonomous parishes: St Helen, St Joseph, Our Lady of Mount Carmel and St Mary. It also houses one of the most famous Jesuit colleges in Malta, St Aloysius' College. Birkirkara is the home town two of Malta's last 4 Prime Ministers and also the birthplace of the first president of Malta Anthony Mamo. The city's motto is "In hoc signo vinces" meaning "in this sign you will conquer", and its coat of arms is a plain red cross, surmounted by a crown.
Just 5 minutes walk from the apartment you'll find the public gardens of San Anton, open to the public since 1882, are laid out in a formal manner, with graceful walkways, sculptures, ornamental ponds, families of ducks and swans, and a small aviary. They contain a large variety of trees and flowers from around the world. It's a great place for early morning yoga or just a walk to wake up surrounded by nature.
Just in front of San Anton garden there is a 5 star hotel with lovely restaurants and sports and spa facilities.
There's a bus stop just 1 minute walk away from the apartment from which you can catch a bus to most of Malta. For more information on bus routes visit Arriva Malta's website
