Farmhouse in Malta

When you think about farmhouses in Malta, the picture that probably comes to mind is a structure situated on agricultural land, with a backyard where you can entertain friends. This may be true in some cases, but there are also expertly converted farmhouses that you can rent or buy, redesigned to include luxurious features. You will find plenty of these accommodations for rent or sale on the island.

Why go for a farmhouse?

Whether you are planning a prolonged vacation or staying for good in the country, you need to look for comfortable accommodations. Why should you choose a farmhouse? Here you can find four good reasons to buy or rent a farmhouse in Malta:

You can commune with nature

Most farmhouses are situated on vast properties which are still near the city or places of interest. When you rent or buy a farmhouse, expect to find some welcome tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of city centres. Some modern farmhouses have the added value of outdoor areas for you and your whole family to enjoy.

You can find farmhouses which double as ‘houses of character’

Aside from having an unobstructed view of the country, renting or buying such a farmhouse is an adventure by itself. There are old farmhouses that are centuries-old homes which you can rent or purchase. These structures have been meticulously maintained over the years, and you will be amazed at the history associated with each room in the house. Even the walls, ceilings, and decor have their own stories to tell so when you add that to your Malta experience, you really are in for a treat.

You will have plenty of living space all to yourself

Unlike small flats or noisy maisonettes, farmhouses let you enjoy utmost privacy, peace, and quiet. Because of the sheer size of farmhouses, you can have plenty of living space all to yourself. Living in a farmhouse is an experience which modern city living can never offer.

You can get the best value for your money

Whether you are renting or buying a farmhouse, you should do your research well first. By asking around and searching for your options on reputable websites, you can find a farmhouse with a style that suits your taste, and a rate that fits your budget. Before purchasing, you must understand the minimum deposit required, what the stamp duty fees are, the architect’s fee so that he or she can inspect the property, notary fees, and the associated insurance rates. Also, check the local real estate laws to make sure that everything is in legal order before you rent or buy that charming farmhouse in Malta.


Aside from the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, always carefully check on the condition of the property. Especially in the case of a centuries-old farmhouse, the condition of the property will help you ascertain whether the asking price is worth it or not.
Unlike lofts, apartments, maisonettes or duplexes, farmhouses give you access to a larger parcel of land. You may even have a huge backyard or an entire farmland all to yourself, depending on the location of the property.
Depending on the location and size of the property, you can purchase farmhouses from as low as €750,000 to €5 million for units with swimming pools, numerous rooms and baths, and luxurious features.
