2 - 12岁

La Parenthèse is a beautiful 3-storeys Maltese house of character of 300 years old, located in a typical small street in the historic heart of Birkirkara.


La Parenthèse is a lovely house of character, located in the heart of the old Birkirkara. This house has been carefully furnished in a traditional Maltese way, while bringing a modern touch. (For more details, read the rest of the description, the rules of procedure, and below the description of the neighborhood and transportation).


All the rooms on the ground floor are surrounding a sunny private courtyard with full privacy and furnished with table, chairs, bench, umbrella and BBQ. You enter through a large hall, leading to a great fully equipped kitchen with all necessary appliances (microwave, toaster, electric kettle, coffee maker), a cozy dining room, a pretty living room with flat screen TV and a Wi-Fi. There is also a guest toilet.
An internal stone staircase is leading to the upper floors, where there are 4 bedrooms sleeping up to 9 people (3 double beds and 3 single beds). Each room has its particular character, allowing you to choose the mood you prefer.
Each floor, first and second, is equipped with a full bathroom. The bathroom of the 2nd floor is ensuite to one of the two rooms.
You can access to a dressing from a room of the first floor, where you can find a cot and a baby stroller, available to travelers.
A washing machine is located on the 2nd level, just below the rooftop, which is currently available : you can dry your laundry or borrow the sun loungers situated in the small room before the roof and enjoy the coolest hours to relax and admire the view.
All bedding and towels are provided. Hair dryer and iron are also available.
The house is well protected against the summer heat waves with its shutters, blinds, curtains, fan and air conditionning, which can be found in each bedroom and in the dining room.


The house is entrusted to a very welcoming friend because I don't reside in Malta permanently. But we will keep in touch by email, upstream and downstream of your stay.


La Parenthèse is an ideal stay for visitors looking for a quiet and restful vacation. It is also located close to the University for adult students and the Mater Dei Hospital for people wishing to reside nearby. It is available to professionals for short and medium term rentals.

The house was lovely in a great proximity to square unfortunately there is no parking at premises and we had to, on occasion, walk far from place that car was left parked. Excellent communication with Alain and Agathe. Highly recommended if using public transport.
Hello Joanna, Thank you for your remarks, but I would like to answer you on the question of parking. We made clear in the announcement that there were places available in front of the house, but not reserved, and that one could easily park on the square of Santa Héléna Church a few minutes from the house on foot , except on market days on wednesday and friday morning. This information is always good, we did not want to mislead you. On the other hand, you came to Malta during the August 15 celebrations, which are a great moment of rejoicing on the whole island, but which provoke an influx of people, especially in the old center of Birkirkara. This is the information I would add on the announcement. Apart from this exceptional period, our guests have always managed to find a parking space not far from the house. I am sorry that this was not your case for this stay.

Estancia muy agradable, la casa tiene todo lo que puedas necesitar y más, en un sitio muy bien comunicado en autobus para ir a cualquier lugar de Malta. Muy limpio y agradable, si bien hay que tener en cuenta que las habitaciones están en dos pisos y hay que subir por tanto escaleras. Tiene aire acondicionado y ventiladores en cada habitación, lo único que las habitaciones que dan a la calle son algo ruidosas. Perfecto de todas formas, el anfitrión y Sara nos han ayudado en todo: a la llegada, durante la estancia, a la salida...., muchas gracias a ambos!

Logement de grande qualité, très bien équipé que ce soit en cuisine ou en chambre, linge de maison à disposition sentant bon le propre et le séchage en plein air sur le toit-terrasse (possibilité d'utiliser la machine à laver) ! Chaque chambre dispose de sa clim, très très appréciable en été... Quartier très calme mais central avec de nombreuses lignes de bus à quelques minutes à pied, proche aussi du marché et des petits commerces où l'on trouve tout ce dont on a besoin, voisinage sympathique. Un mot sur Alain que nous n'avons pas vu mais qui fut très présent en amont pour la préparation du séjour, relayé efficacement par Agathe sur place, tous deux joignables sans souci. Première expérience sur Airbnb, la barre est haute ! Merci à vous deux et bonne continuation, Véronique
Merci Véronique pour vos commentaires élogieux, je vous souhaite un très bel été ! Alain

Bonita casa, en buen estado de consevación, limpia y con aire acondicionado en todas las habitaciones. Hemos tenido una estancia muy agradable.

This traditional maltese house of character is beautiful as we expected and located in a very authentic not touristic area of Malta but very close to Valletta and the other main areas. We have been not so lucky founding out at our arrival that a water pipe was broken and had some shortage of cold and then hot water for the shower. They solved the problem in 3 days that I believe in Malta is already a very fast time:-) and Alain agreed to reimburse a portion of our fee for the inconvenience. Unfortunately we couldn't meet him in person, but he answered promptly to our e-mails and his friend Agathe was always available at the phone and very kind at our arrival: we used (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Map to find the house with a rented car from the airport, but I missed to add the name of the village, so we arrived to another village Santu Roccu street and she had to wait us quite a few time...very sorry for that my mistake:-)
Thank you Carlotta for your kindness and for having endured so very fair play the troubles caused by the rupture of the water meter. I hope your research in Malta soon come to an end very positively for you. Hope to see you in the future. Alain

The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Vraiment désolé pour cet incident. L'amie qui gère la maison en mon absence était en train d'accoucher (en avance) à l'arrivée de mes hôtes. Malheureux concours de circonstances. Heureusement, Kevin et ses amis ont pu trouver, grâce à Airbnb, une solution alternative rapidement.

Logement de caractère spacieux et bien équipé, conforme à la description. Proche commerces et transport (pas besoin de voiture). Bonne base pour rayonner dans l'ile. Bons conseils de l'hôte en amont du voyage et bon accueil sur place. Je recommande.
Merci Bruno pour vos commentaires. Pour ce qui est des isolations, j'ai déjà prévu de le faire après la saison, car je me suis rendu compte de la nécessité de le faire....
