Why choose Malta as your Digital Nomad destination?

Why  choose Malta as your Digital Nomad destination?
Are you working from home and long to escape lock down? Malta is fast becoming every Digital Nomad’s dream with affordable long let apartments and farmhouses. 

Covid has brought with it many changes. One of which is the new found luxury of working from home and avoiding the commute to the office. This not only buys you more time, it also opens you up to being able to work from anywhere. Anywhere in the world. Digital nomads are a 21st century phenomena and if the view from your kitchen window is getting stale and the wet, dull weather is getting under your skin - you may be considering leaving it behind for a 6 month stint on the sunny island of Malta - laptop and sunnies in hand. Quicklets have a huge range of options - whether you’re looking for a short let apartment in Malta or a lush long let farmhouse in Gozo - at hugely affordable prices. This could be the summer you make your Digital Nomad dreams a reality. 


The sunny Maltese coastline could be the perfect backdrop for any Digital Nomad looking for an office with a view.

1. Sea, Sun & Fun. 

What calls over a million tourists to the island yearly? The perfect Mediterranean weather. If you’re looking for a place to quarantine in the sun, Malta experiences a total of 2 months a year of winter and the rest of time is essentially summer in Malta. Daily sunshine and high temperatures are on the menu for you when working on an island in Malta. Check out the weather forecast here: Aside from the great weather, you’ll get to experience the joys of being immersed in Maltese laid back and relaxed culture and traditions. You will definitely be the annoying friend sending beach sunset photos and showing off the beauty of island life   to the rest of your family and friends back home. The best part? With over 80 penthouses and other properties for rent around Malta and Gozo available on our  Quicklets website, you’ll be sure to find one with a great sea view just like the one found in the link below.

2. Tax in Malta

Malta is commonly referred to as a tax haven as it offers a number of potential benefits for non-residents as well as locals. Hence, why so many international companies have settled here in Malta; partly because of this as well as the island's geographical location, tax rebate policies and EU trade agreements.
