Introducing Samuel Sultana to Julesy’s BnB
Over the years, many of our guests have admired and purchased quality works of art we’ve exhibited from artists, such as Stephanie Borg; Caroline Said Lawrence; Clemens Hasengschwandtner; Rachel Farrugia and recently Sara Pace.
We are more than impressed with the beautiful original paintings that Samuel Sultana produces and now proudly have several large pieces on display. This vibrant collection look fantastic in our guesthouse and certainly won’t fit in your suitcase. Not to worry though, as we pack & ship worldwide.
Samuel Sultana is a Franco-Maltese creative, based in Malta. At the age of 1, he raised a hammer, as per Maltese tradition: a great tool to both build and destroy. After obtaining his Degree and Masters across a number of international institutions, he embarked on a shift from stability and familiarity by moving to Bristol and founding his first collective in late 2012.
Upon returning to Malta, he formed a new collaborative context that allowed him to create a more structured and entrepreneurial approach in order to retain his ethos.
We’re sure our guests will also love Samuel’s work and will snap up well priced original artwork, whilst here with us in Malta.
New Artist to Julesy’s BnB – Sara Pace
Julesy’s BnB love art and more-so love supporting local artists.
We are more than impressed with the beautiful original paintings that Sara Pace produces and now proudly have a small selection on display. The collection is suitably sized for guests to take as carry-on luggage, albeit we pack & ship worldwide too.
Sara Pace is a graduate fine artist and art historian, as well as a practising art educator in a secondary school in Malta. Sara has studied art at various local institutions such as the Malta School of Art and the University of Malta, as well as abroad at Clarion University, Pennsylvania, US and at the Burren College of Art, Ireland.
We’re sure our guests will also love Sara’s work and be able to take home a unique memento of their stay here with us in Malta.
Valletta Green Festival 2018
4th to 6th of May 2018
St Georges Square, Valletta
Each year, the Valletta Green Festival transforms one of the largest open urban spaces in Valletta, Pjazza San Ġorġ, with its colourful signature feature – a huge floral carpet composed of some 80,000 potted plants. A yearly programme of family-friendly activities happening in the capital city and other localities have established this much-loved weekend-long festival as a fun and accessible platform for initiatives promoting environmental consciousness on the Maltese Islands. The festival also offers visitors rare glimpses into some of the capital city’s little-known historical treasures, including the four-hundred-year-old gardens of the Archbishop’s Palace and the Convent of St Catherine.
Book your stay with us (whilst we still have availability) via this link and receive complimentary ferry ride across the Grand Harbour to enjoy this great event.

The Tour of Mosta, Ta’ Qali Crafts Village
& Mdina, the Noble City
You will first drive to the city of Mosta. Inspired by Rome’s Pantheon, the church in the center of the city was built in the 18th Century. It became known throughout the country in 1942 when during World War II, a dropped bomb failed to explode, thus sparing the lives of some 300 people. This church has the third largest dome in Europe.
You will then visit the town of Ta’Qali, located nearby was once a British WWII outpost, but has been converted to a village for local handicrafts. You will be able to watch local artisans at work blowing elaborate glass art pieces, intricately assembling original silver filigree jewelry, carving the local limestone and many more. This is the perfect place to pick up treasures that will remind you of your Malta visit.
Finally you visit Mdina, Malta’s ancient capital. It rests in a very majestic way, on top of a hilltop right at the center of the island. Mdina is also called ‘The Silent City’ because of its literally quiet and narrow streets that give off a quaint yet very homey atmosphere. Mdina is not only considered to be one of Malta’s precious jewels, but this ancient walled city is one of the best medieval fortifications. You will see magnificent views of the entire Maltese landscape. In Mdina you will have some time to relax and enjoy the area.
