FortChambray Luxury Apartment
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
A brand new ground floor, two-bedroom apartment which is luxuriously finished by a professional interior designer, fully furnished to high standards and enjoying a private large sunny terrace and garden. Located in Fort Chambray - one of the most exclusive areas of the island of Gozo.
The fort was originally built by the Knights of the Order of St John and enjoys panoramic views over the Malta-Gozo-Comino channel. Fort Chambray combines an eclectic and exciting history and has been recently converted to a top quality, traffic free residential area with extensive landscaping. The complex includes 2 large communal swimming pools, each with children's pool and shower facilities.
The apartment is 10 minutes walking distance from the ferry terminal in Mgarr, Gozo and there are also a number of bars and restaurants within walking distance from the Fort. The Gozitan capital of Victoria (or Rabat, the name by which it is known among the locals) is just 10 minutes away by bus and there one can find a number of shopping centres and outlets.
Don't let Gozo's tranquillity fool you – the island is also bubbling with plenty for night lovers too and the Mediterranean's traditionally passionate approach is on hand and appropriate. Nightlife here can be energetic and busy, with a choice of several clubs and bars catering for various tastes. Unique hotspots can be found all over the island but many are concentrated in the Xlendi, Victoria and Marsalforn areas.
This property is fully equipped with all the necessary amenities and modern day luxuries. It consists of two spacious double bedrooms, one large main bathroom with both flexible and fixed shower head, a kitchen with all appliances, a dining area and a comfortable living area with a comfortable sofa and 32" colour TV. All rooms enjoy a large and very nice surrounding terrace, ideal for enjoying outdoor relaxation and dining as it is equipped with outside furniture and a gas-fired BBQ.
Included in the price is also a secure 1 car space located underneath the apartment.
The property will be cleaned and prepared prior to each arrival, where fresh bed linen and towels are provided. We do not charge any cleaning fees however we expect that you clean the property and take care of it, just as if it were your own home.

"Fantastic location - excellent apartment!"
We stayed for a week and found the apartment well furnished and very comfortable. The pools were amazing and never very busy - we could always get 4 sun beds when we tried! Mario and Anna were very helpful with all aspects of our trip from our initial request to meeting us off the ferry and showing us around.
We would thoroughly recommend Fort Chambray, Mario & Anna and Gozo!

"Great short stay; helpful and efficient property manager"
My family and I enjoyed a 3 night stay whilst in between a visit to Malta. The apartment was as described (apart from a microwave) and was clean and tidy throughout. Air con also worked very well and the apartment was comfortable, with quality furniture and a good sized outdoor space. We travelled with a 9 year old and a baby and the apartment was entirely suitable. Mario provided a quality cot and mattress (which does not always seem to be the case in some hotels or apartments).
Mario was very efficient throughout the entire booking process and was friendy on arrival. He even took the time to show me around the local area and point out shops, restaurants etc. We used the restuarants in the harbour (excelent fish restaurant), which would be a long walk but we had a car. Others are closer by.
The development has great views of the Comino channel and is quiet and relaxing. Wi-fi worked well. We used as a base to explore Gozo from and would return. We very much appreciated the excellent service we received from Mario.

"Quiet relaxing base on Gozo"
Fort Chambray is beautiful - great views, lovely architecture, plenty of greenery and very clean and quiet too. The biggest pool is huge, with plenty of loungers and umbrellas. It's worth noting that there are currently no other amenities there - the nearest supermarket is a 10-15 minute walk in the heat, and the port and restaurants are a similar distance down a very big hill. We walked down one evening and taxied back - there's normally plenty of taxis at the ferry terminal. The restaurants in the port are excellent, but there's no shops etc there - you have to drive 10-15 minutes to beautiful Victoria for that. For us, car hire was essential.
Correspondence with Mario prior to arriving was prompt and courteous. His wife, Anna, collected us from the ferry and drove us to Victoria so we could get our bearings - pointing out the supermarket etc en route. That was really helpful and unexpected. Thanks Anna!
The apartment itself was clean and tidy with a big terrace with views of the second pool. It doesn't really get the sun (a blessing when it was so hot!). We were disappointed by the mouldy, damp cushions on the outside sofa and chairs so took them off while we were there. It was great having plenty of towels - both for the shower and the pool/beach and they smelt lovely and fresh, however we had to hand wash our pillowcases as the bed linen smelt really fusty. Given the lack of nearby amenities, it would be good if either a small complimentary welcome pack was provided or if you had the option to purchase one prior to arrival so you had the basics waiting for you.
Gozo is lovely - plenty of swimming, snorkelling and diving opportunities. Not many beaches though. Food and local wine were both good - try the pea pies!
We are indeed pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our Fort Chambray apartment. Of course, being in peaceful surroundings and "away from it all" is one of the main attractions of a stay at Fort Chambray and this necessitates that supermarkets and restaurants are not very close at hand but are a five minute drive or a fifteen minute walk away. It is not necessary to walk down the hill to Mgarr port for restaurants: Rexy's and The Clubhouse in Ghajnsielem are reachable without the need to walk back up the hill from Mgarr to Fort Chambray. We have noted your comments regarding the outdoor furniture cushions, which were damp because of the particularly humid weather we had recently: however we will be getting replacement cushions which will allow us to alternate them accordingly. We cannot understand what happened regarding the pillow cases, so kindly accept our apologies in this regard. A welcome pack is usually provided on a complimentary basis with regards to arrivals during the evening / night. Clients arriving during the day usually visit Ta' Dirjanu supermarket in Ghajnsielem which is just a five minute drive from Fort Chambray. We look forward to be able to host you again at one of our Fort Chambray apartments in the future.

Our stay in Fort Chambray can only be described as "Amazing". Mario was extremely helpful both with transfers and the allocation of the apartment. Fort Chambray in itself was spectacular. We stayed with our extended family for 4 weeks, the site is still undergoing some construction, however this is at the far end and you would never know. The pool area is immaculate and the staff check it every night. Gozo is beautiful, lots to do if you wish, and if like us you require a restful holiday you can have exactly that too. We travelled with 2 small children age 6 and 4 who are now wishing to go back already.
It was a pleasure hosting you and your family at Fort Chambray and look forward to be again of service should you decide to visit Gozo again in the future.
