How was your morning coffee today?
We at Julesy’s BnB take our coffee very seriously to ensure our guests have a coffee-licious experience.
It all starts with our 100% Arabica Coffee, which we’ve sourced from dedicated roasters in Sicily. The aroma of these beans is so aromatic that we became Malta’s exclusive distributor of them. Our beans are then finely ground through our handcrafted Italian coffee grinder, to assist with the ideal crema. Next, our ground beans are placed in our beautifully handcrafted Elektra Coffee Machine and we create the magic.
From espresso to cafe latte to cappuccino, or a good old flat white, we create our guest’s preferred coffee.

December in Malta
December is fast approaching. The month of Christmas trees, snow, thick jackets and warm scarves. Well, maybe in the rest of Europe but not here in beautiful sunny Malta. Yes, believe it or not, Malta can still be quite warm in this time of the year. One could even expect temperatures in the 20’s. So how does a getaway from gloomy weather sound?
During this time of the year (similar to the month of November), the weather could be somewhat different from one day to the next. We experience colder days (sometimes) with rain and thunder, totally different from the previous sunny weeks, however this rarely seems to last long in Malta.
Despite our good weather, the month of December is all about Christmas. Streets and roundabouts are decorated with Christmas lights and different festive decorations, whilst some houses are decorated from top to bottom with lights around every window and every door.
Valletta and Sliema are the places for the usual Christmas shopping extravaganzas, which is something you’ll ether love or hate. In saying this, Republic and Merchant streets in Valletta, are beautifully decorated with lights and tinsel all along the streets attracting thousands of people everyday for Christmas shopping, and of course people watching.
The Point shopping center in Sliema is Malta’s largest shopping complex, where hundreds of people shop everyday. During the month of December the center and surrounding lane are transformed into a Christmas wonderland.
In December one can see different Christmas plays, some in English and others in Maltese. A very popular event is the Christmas pantomime which is a very popular tradition in Malta especially for young families. It’s incredible how they take a classic children’s story and transform it into a Christmas fairy tale.
Traditional Christmas Food:
Christmas time is a time for being spoilt with food and drink. Here in Malta during the festive season you can easily indulge yourself with different Christmas desserts such as minced pies, Christmas log, treacle rings or Qaghaq tal-Ghasel, Maltese Christmas pudding and of course the traditional Pannetone. Nevertheless during the month of December spirits are high, families come together and people exchange gifts in the time for giving.
The last religious feast is held in Cospicua on the 8th, and the procession is in our street. Thousands of locals descend on our village to partake in the activities and to witness the traditional festa for the local Catholic Church.
It’s winter. So all the airlines have great deals on flights and we’re only a short flight away. Guests staying with us for 4+ nights are even picked-up from the airport as a complimentary service.
So glad you asked. We have our own private time out from the 24th to the 26th as hopefully you can appreciate, however most of the rest of December is up for grabs. Simply click on this link to book.
If you can’t make it here this December, perhaps plan for 2017, noting we are already taking bookings in 2018, as Malta’s capital city is the EU Capital of Culture.
