Malta has a high standard of living. Its health care and educational systems are excellent and the cost of living is relatively low. Furthermore, the island is well connected with mainland Europe. These aspects make it appealing for foreigners looking to move there.
What type of accommodation is available?
There is a wide selection of properties to suit every budget and lifestyle requirements. This is also true in the major towns, where properties range from the modest to the upmarket, including terraced houses, apartments and maisonettes.
If you prefer something outside the towns and far from the tourist resorts, you can find a property inland. These tend to be cheaper and usually come with a bit of land – anything up to an acre or more. Nevertheless, when looking for a property, do keep in mind the distance from your working place. Although the island is small, traffic can be very slow.
Properties are priced per square metre. They are rented as furnished or unfurnished so you have the option of bringing your own belongings with you. Note that some landlords might not allow pets or smoking.
