Celebrate the festive season at Malta’s Mdina
For keen travellers seeking out an alternative destination to celebrate the festivities of Christmas and New Year's Eve, look no further than The Xara Palace Relais & Châteaux. This opulent 17th-century palace is hidden away in the Medieval fortified city of Mdina, the old capital of Malta, which experiences temperatures of almost 20 degrees throughout the whole of December. With the streets no longer heaving with tourists in peak season, it provides the perfect setting to celebrate the holidays with loved ones. Overflowing with culture, archaeology, and history, and with a delectable array of food and drink, Malta is a brilliant holiday destination, but even better at Christmas!
