Best Areas in Malta to Find Affordable Apartment Rentals

malta permanent residence programme

When one is on the lookout for an apartment to rent, several factors play a role but surely the biggest one for people in employment is the proximity to one’s place of work. If you are in the situation where you are retired, any location will do given that it suits your budget, but even here several factors will play a huge role. 

As a retiree, an apartment’s proximity to shops and medical facilities will be a huge bonus and even more so if an apartment block has a lift. As we get older, we also rely more on public transport, so being within a short distance to a bus stop will also be favoured by this group of tenants. 

Those in employment with children will be on the lookout for apartments that are close to day-care facilities, schools and shopping centres and if it has off-street parking, even better. It does not matter what demographic group one falls in; everyone wants value for money and we look at some of the most affordable apartments in and around Gozo and Malta’s most popular areas.
