The Island of Gozo region
Discovering Gozo is the key to discovering one of the most untouched and unique islands in the Mediterranean. Gozo is the perfect island holiday destination, a serene land where time has stood still. An all-year round destination, Gozo is ideal for beach holidays, religious or historical travel, an eco-holiday, a self-catering stay, a walking holiday or just an opportunity to get away from it all and indulge in great food, great beaches and an exceptional culture. It is also paradise for those after a diving holiday in the crystal-clear Mediterranean waters. Gozo is many things to many different people, but above all it is truly special, tranquil and unique: the island of Myths and Miracles...
Calendar of Events:
St. Joseph the Worker - 1st Sunday of May
St. Anthony's Feast - 1st Sunday of June
Our Lady of Loreto - Last Sunday of August
Jum Ghajnsielem - 10th December (Ghajnsielem Day)
Christmas Celebrations week - 2nd week of December till 3rd January (huge life size crib)
Ghajnsielem has a population of around 3,000 and is the first Gozitan village that will greet you as soon as you leave Mgarr Harbour towards the Gozitan heartland. As soon as you enter Mgarr Harbour, while still aboard the ferry, you could not help but notice the welcoming landmarks of the harbour village of Ghajnsielem. Lourdes Chapel with its sharp steeple and underlying niche of Our Lady of Lourdes, Fort Chambray on the left-hand side dominating the high grounds and, on the distant background, the towering belfry of Ghajnsielem's Parish Church. The people of Ghajnsielem are referred to as il-Ghajnsilmizi.
The name of the village is a composite of 'Ghajn' (spring of) and 'Is-sliem' (peace). This name probably refers to a natural spring which used to supply water, and subsequently modified and reconstructed by Grand Master Raymond Perellos in 1700 when he built an arcade containing nine washing basins bestowed its name to the village.
This sprint is connected with a legend about Nardu, a man from Xewkija, who returned to Gozo from slavery on the Barbary Coast. On his return he looked for his wife and daughter, Ursula. The latter being the sole survivor, he found her, by now a married woman, near this spring. Since then, the spring started to be called Ghajn is-Sliem, because Nardu found piece when he met his daughter. Another version is 'Ghajn Salem', a corrupt name for Selim, a Turkish naval commander, who compelled his crew to disembark at Mgarr and replenish their water supply from this spring every time he happened to be sailing by the Maltese Islands.
The name is first recorded as 'Hain Selem' in a notarial act drawn by Joannes Domenico Formosa on 17th February 1587.

"What a beautiful farmhouse. Perfect for a quiet relaxing holiday"
I have organised many holidays for a family group of 10 people over the last 12 years or so. I can honestly say this was one of the best Villas/ Farmhouses we have rented. The photos do not do it justice, as everything is beautifully decorated and in perfect order. There is ample space for a large group (easily accomodates 10 people) and each of the 5 bedrooms are tastefully decorated. Four of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms (all modern, with quality fitments & showers. The ground floor bedroom has a bathroom only a few metres away, off the main lounge area, again with quality fitments & shower. The swimming pool and garden area is ideal for sunbathing/ relaxing all day round. The sun rises and hits the far corner of the pool area early and moves through the garden as the day progresses, so there is always an area of shade if you need it. There is a gas barbeque for anyone wishing to cook on it (we did 4 times, and it was perfect). The farmhouse is set in a quiet residential street a few hundred metres from the local supermarket where all your provisions are available (fresh meat, cheeses, fruit & veg, frozen food and almost everything you would need to eat & drink comfortably. Approximately 300 metres down the street is the church square where you will find a number of bars, cafes/ restauarants all at a very reasonable price (typically 4-5 euros for a pizza or burger & chips type dinner). By the ferry harbour you will find more restaurants with very good quality food (typically 20 euros per person for a 2 or 3 course meal. The bar prices are very cheap compared to the U.K. - we had 2x Henesey Branies & cokes, 2 pints of lager, 1x Malibu & coke and a Jack Daniels & coke and it was only 11 Euros ! Gozo itself is still un-spoilt and it is probably best to have a hire car to explore the lovely beaches and villages around the island, although there are taxis and buses avaiable (although we didn't use them, as we had a car). If you are planning on visiting Gozo, then (in my opinion) you would struggle to find a better quality accomodation than Ta' Vitor Farmhouse. The owners ( Alice Cuschieri and her husband) are very helpful and are always available if you have any questions or need help.

"Superb holiday location for a relaxing break in the sun."
Just a quick mail to say how much we enjoyed staying at Ta'Vitor on Gozo. The house was one of the best that we have ever rented abroad, that nice mix of a traditional Maltese Farmhouse building with just the right modern touches; fitted kitchen, walk in showers and a private pool. What made a real difference was the help that the owners gave us in dealing with the few problems we encountered during our stay such as finding portable air con when granddad got too hot etc. We really miss Gozo now, the quiet tranquil beaches with excellent snorkeling and the great local restaurants and cuisine. We enjoyed the fish dishes at Xlendi and also the friendly shop owners in Ghajnsielem where we bought pastizzi, local bread and lots of local food. The Festa was awesome and we really enjoyed attending an all family celebration where everyone is happy and enjoying the spectacular fireworks and music with no fear of trouble. We spent some great "quiet time" in the heat of the day and in the evenings at Ta Vitor, either in the pool or sat around it drinking cold Cisk and discussing what the next day would bring...always blue sky and friendly people. Highlights for us: Being met at the airport by the owners (Leo and Alice), when we were tired and hot, and bearing fresh pastizzi for the evening and leading us to the Gozo ferry; Sunset over Gozo as we left Malta on the short ferry ride; The first dip in Ta'Vitors pool to cool off with some food and cold drinks already in the fridge; Watching the Festa from the various balconies that Ta'Vitor has. Nothing in Malta seems to be too much trouble for the Maltese people and the world could learn a lesson from the genuinely friendly and helpful attitude shown to tourists. Chris & Julie Gausden

When I booked "Ta' Vitor", i hope that it would be as good as the description and photos appeared - I was delighted that it was even better that I hoped for when we got there. Teh farmhouse is well appointed, with lovely decoration and everything you could need. It feels like a real 'home from home'. In addition, Alice and Leo were extremely helpful in helping us with arrangements and were incredible hosts making sure we had everyhting we needed to have a great holiday. As a family we will definitely return to Gozo and to Ta' Vitor - an excellent holiday

I stayed at Ta Vitor with my elderly father, he had his 86 birthday whilst we were there, my brother and his family were with us. I loved the house and the setting...it is in a street with very friendly Gozitan neighbours. There was three days of festa and fireworks whilst we were there, with bands playing and marching under Ta Vitor's balconies.... a real taste of Gozo life. We spent three evenings in the Square by the church listening to the band and generally joining in with the Gozitans...fantastic! Ta Vitor was clean, comfortable and spacious a lovely base from which the whole family could enjoy the island of Gozo. Finally a big thank you to the owners of Ta Vitor.... Alice and her husband who met us at the airport and helped us so much.
