November’s a great time to visit the charming Mediterranean island of Malta, with temperatures of 21°C, a flying time of just under four hours and a host of festivals to enjoy throughout the month.
Visit the Traditional Food and Festa fair on Saturday 13th November, which celebrates Maltese cuisine at St Helen’s square – one of the country’s most beautiful and best-preserved village squares, the Festival of Maltese Games on the 14th in Vittoriosa where you can learn about historic folk games at this wonderful street festival, and the Festival Mediterranea which takes place during the last week of October and first week of November on Malta’s little sister island, Gozo.
Stay at the charming Phoenicia Hotel, an independent five-star with chic contemporary design, which is set by the bastions of Valletta offering easy access to all the festivals whilst also providing a heavenly sanctuary with its stunning pool deck (set into the city walls), exquisite mature gardens in perennial bloom and selection of wining and dining options including the award-winning Phoenix restaurant.

Guests can enjoy luxury accommodation at Phoenicia Hotel from £65* per person per night, based on two sharing a Classic Plus room with breakfast each morning. For more information or to book call 0808 238 1710 or visit
