About the Area
Our apartment is located in the town of Balzan which is in the center of Malta. Balzan is known for it's many orange groves situated in the gardens of the old character houses and other private gardens. This village got it's name from a Spanish merchant named Maximillian Balzan, who owned a large piece of land (which came to be known as the village of Balzan). This land was given to him for his services to the knights of the order of St. John.
Balzan is a quaint village with plenty of historical architecture. As you wind through the narrow roads and alleyways, you can see on either side of the street some of the most unique house facades, churches, chapels and religious statues that are centuries old that give the town it's unique character. Balzan is a town that offers a large choice of amenities, bus stops to everywhere on the island, supermarkets, pharmacies, shopping malls, restaurants, coffee shops and last but not least the beautiful gardens of San Anton built by Grand Master de Paule where our president resides. For more information about Malta and the village of Balzan I recommend that you do a search on google, you will be pleasantly surprised!

Dolores was really nice and helped us a lot. She even drove us with car to some destinations,so we didn't waste that much time on transportation. Every day she gave us some suggestions where we can go. Her flat is huge and very beautiful. In our room it was a little bit hot and also noisy(
Notre séjour chez Dolores a été une tres belle expérience. Dolores est tres attentive au bien-etre de ses convives. Nous avions loué une voiture et spontanément elle s,est proposé d,être notre chauffeur pour à la fois nous faire découvrir l'lle et nous "déposer" où nous le souhaitions. Jamais elle ne s'est imposée et a su respecter notre intimité . Toutes ses petites intentions (préparer les pains de glace pour nos randonnées, faire une infusion pour soulager ma toux, nous conseiller un restaurant...) ont fait que nous nous sommes sentis vraiment à l'aise et ont contribué à la réussite de ces vacances. Toujours bienveillante, elle s'interessait à ce que nous voulions faire le lendemain et nos échanges étaient très agréables, meme si notre anglais n'est pas d'un bon niveau. Pour tous ceux qui aiment le contact et l'echange, nous conseillons sans hésitation l'adresse de Dolores chez qui nous retournerons probablement.

Superbe séjour chez Dolores. Nous avons été accueillis comme des princes. Petit dej offert chaque matin. Elle a été aux petits soins pour nous tout le long. De très bons conseils donnés par Dolores sur les endroits à faire et à ne pas faire. On recommande vivement. Vous ne serez pas déçus...
Dolores was great host, she is so warm and polite person. My friend Mirjana and I were her guests for 7 days and we enjoyed. Dolores was so kind to help us about what to see, where to go, etc. Her home is so clean and nice, even the dogs are very friendly and you get used to them very quickly. Room where we were sleeping is more beautiful in live than on pictures. Mirjana and I were enjoying our time with Dolores when we come home after a long day, we were talking about everything, history, culture, life. She is so inspireing person. I had feeleng that I have aunt on Malta and that we came for a visit. Every morning Dolores was makeing us some breakfast and we were talking about our plan for exploring the island that day. The advises our host gave to us were very helpful. I hope to see Dolores somethimes again. <3
Dolores takes great care of the well-being of her guests. She is very warmhearted, helpful and communicative. I had a wonderful time with her. She enriched my vocation in Malta. You can count on Dolores in every situation. She is a great as a person and as a host. I felt very confortable in her home.
El piso es muy amplio, está limpio y es cómodo. Está situado en el centro de Malta y te permite ir a qualquier sitio con poco tiempo. Dolores es muy acojedora, siempre te ayuda en lo que necesites y te da total libertad para entrar y salir de su casa.
Very good conditions, great atmosphere. The hostess very kind and helpful. Accommodation recommendable.
Dolores is a very kind, honest and reliable woman. We have spent 7 days with her and we enjoyed each one. What she can do for you, she does without any request. The house is clean, the room also, she cleans it every day, several times. The dogs are nice and like company, they can be too touchy and follow you around but nothing agressive.
Dolores watches after every thing you do at home, when you cook, if you clean behind and if not, she asks you kindly to. So if you want to leave with kind of a mother, you will love that place.
Balzan is also a very beatiful city with its churches, amenities til late. Food around is marvellous and house's styles are worth watching.
