Where? This is the normal response we get from people when we mention Gozo! Maybe this is actually a GOOD thing! When we first went on holiday there we were frankly astonished, not only by the majestic beauty of the island, but the sense of tranquility and peace were totally soul satisfying, even in the height of summer! As I left the island on the ferry back to Malta that balmy summer's afternoon, I swore I would return..........
Our luxury 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom ground floor apartment with swimming pool and magnificent views is ideally situated very close to everything you need for the perfect holiday.
We have spent a lot of time over the last 20 years travelling the globe with our work. It's not as glamorous as it sounds (honestly!). Nights spent on dreadful hotel beds and showers where you have to run around just to get wet are a source of constant irritation! This is why it was really important to us to create an environment with all the comforts of home. It is also important to us to reflect the peace and tranquility of Gozo in our property. In short, this is somewhere to unwind, relax and generally shrug off the cares of the world - just what a holiday is designed to do.

Very good question! But only if you've never been! Let's put it this way, if you want loud clubs, high rise buildings, crowds of holiday makers, or a REALLY long flight, then Gozo probably isn't for you! On the other hand, if you want paradise within a 3 hour plane journey from the UK or Germany, tranquility, magnificent unspoiled scenery, the best diving in the Med, superb food and the most amazingly friendly people and a typical Mediterranean climate, then Gozo is a good choice!
Gozo is a small island, just 9 miles by 5, situated off the northern coast of Malta, but in some respects, the two couldn't be more different. Gozo is rightly proud of it's determination to be "different" and very protective of it's unique environment. and cautious of over development. The size of the island however belies the wealth of things to see and do! There are dozens of enchanting deserted coves to explore with crystal clear azure water. If you want a sandy beach there are the famous red sands of Ramla Bay or you could take a day trip over to the Blue Lagoon on Comino.
Gozo is an ancient place. Said to be the setting for Homer's Odyssey, there are a wealth of archaeological sites to investigate, from Neolithic temples, via the Phoenicians and Romans, to the Crusaders. There are the caves of Xhagra, the nature reserve at Ta Cenc, numerous country walks where you can explore the island's unique flora, folklore and maritime museums, the busy market towns of Xhagra and Victoria, windmills, the craft village at Gharb, and a positive plethora of baroque churches!
And then there's the diving! Gozo has the best diving in the Mediterranean, bar none! An abundance of marine flora and fauna, combined with the warm clear water (min 16 degrees and often more than 40m visibility) and wreck diving makes this an unique experience. You may even find an archaeological artifact! Or you could hire a boat and explore....or sit by the pool, with a gin and tonic......
