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 :)
We treat our guests as part of our family :) We love to exchange our traditions, cultures, learn new languages.
We understand students' needs are varied. Our aim is to ensure that all students experience a rich, happy and memorable experience in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere.

J'ai passé un excellent séjour chez Elaine et Victor qui ma permis de faire de très bon progrès en anglais. Malgré la situation avec le covid j'ai pue visiter l'île en autonomie grâce à leurs conseils. La famille est à l'écoute de nos besoins, grâce à leurs aides j'ai facilement trouvé un emploie en temps que bénévole. Un grand merci à toute la famille.
Un grand merci à Elaine et Victor qui ont su accueillir notre fille Marine avec beaucoup de gentillesse. Marine est ravie et a bien progressé en anglais grâce aux cours que lui a consacré Elaine durant son séjour. nous espérons qu elle y retournera. Merci à tous les deux et leur charmante famille.
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.
