Valletta Vintage is a collection of vintage and contemporary finds – properties & contents – curated to offer an alternative to mainstream holiday accommodation in Malta. The owners love art and design and believe that good architecture can bring inner peace and solace.
Established in 2012 by architect Chris Briffa, the collection grew from one small apartment to five, each housed in buildings older than a hundred years and spread around the city of Valletta and its harbour. The architect renovated the spaces with his renowned, elegant approach; subtly integrating the traditional with the contemporary.
Together with his wife Hanna, they furnished the self-catering studios with a mix of designer, bespoke and vintage pieces sourced from shops, workshops and markets. Very much like an extension of their own home, each unit is equipped with all modern commodities and comforts, clever details and a growing collection of local, contemporary artwork.
While each studio is different from the other, they are all conceived around a common concept – a commitment to provide a memorable and truly local experience in comfortable vintage settings.
