Located at the centre of the Mediterranean Sea, the islands of Malta and Gozo have a culture that has been influenced by various inhabitants over the centuries, making it a collection of islands seeped in history and culture.
This sun-soaked country boasts nine months of excellent weather and sunshine a year, leaving plenty of time for its residents to make use of the crystal-clear seas that it's surrounded by. As a bi-lingual country, its official languages are Maltese and English - almost all the locals speak both. Malta also forms part of both the EU and Schengen Zone.
It is thus very easily accessible with daily flights to all major European and North African destinations. The islands boast many attractive attributes including record-low crime rates, exceptional private and national healthcare services, reasonable living costs and an extremely consistent property market. It is therefore no surprise that Malta has become a cosmopolitan European hub, with an increasing numbers of foreigners choosing the islands as their home.
