A home away from home in an English speaking family

Hey! My husband and I are experienced Host Family in Malta.
My husband Victor and I Elaine together with our children a girl of 11 years and a boy of 7 years are gladly happy to welcome students and guests from all around the world into our home.
One of the family's hobbies is cooking - we love Maltese and Mediterranean cuisines. A really relaxing hobby of mine is gardening and reading. Our kids adore crafts - they love creating stuff and painting.
Our house has been visited and recommended by the Malta Tourism Authority. This lovely 1950's just refurbished 4 bedroom Townhouse, which has been recently restored to include modern comforts lies in a peaceful road close in a typical Maltese village.
All bedrooms are complete with television and Netflix (thousands of movies to choose from), bathrooms and Air-conditioned
The Neighborhood is very friendly, quiet and helpful :)

J'ai passé 15 jours début  juillet chez Elaine et Victor. Ce fut une belle expérience pendant laquelle j'ai pu améliorer mon anglais. J'ai rencontré une adorable famille, toujours présente en cas de besoin. La journée je visitais l'île seul en bus et le soir, nous partagions des moments ensemble. J'ai notament participé à plusieurs réunions de famille. Elaine et Victor nous laisse très libres et indépendants. Le maltais faisait partie de mon quotidien tant par la langue qui est parlée par les membres de la famille et les habitants que par la délicieuse cuisine de Victor et Elaine. Chaque repas fut un régal ! Leur maison est très confortable, chaque chambre est climatisée et petit plus, une fontaine  avec de l'eau fraîche est disposée à chaque étage. Malte est une superbe île qui regorge de lieux à visiter et la population est accueillante. Grazzi tal-merħba tiegħek (thank you for your host)


Séjour très agréable

Très bon accueil de la part d'Elaine et Victor, toujours à l'écoute de nos moindres besoins, auxquels ils répondent toujours rapidement. Les échanges souvent partagés autour d'un bon repas - merci Victor- m'ont permis de pratiquer un anglais plus fluide. Les conseils avisés et pratiques ont conduit à la découverte en tous sens de Malte et de Gozo, leurs merveilles archéologiques et historiques, témoins d'un passé et d'une culture très riches. Je recommande chaudement cette famille. Un grand merci à tous les deux.

Très bon séjour de mes enfants de 17 et 19 ans chez Elaine et Victor à Malte où ils ont passé successivement 2 semaines au mois d’août. Famille chaleureuse, maison très agréable et repas copieux. Ils ont pu découvrir l’île avec Elaine mais aussi en autonomie grâce à ses conseils. De bon progrès en anglais notamment en compréhension, même s’ils étaient avec 2 autres hôtes français. En conclusion très bon séjour a recommander.
