The Island of Gozo region
Gozo is a small island of the Maltese archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea. The island itself has a population of around 31,000 people. It is an ideal place for history lovers. In fact, the gozitans are very lucky to have the most oldest temple in the world , named the Ggantija Temple. It is also famous for our beautiful beaches and beautiful sunny weather. It is quite popular with divers. They come from all over the world to enjoy and explore the tunnels, caves, grottos, reefs and spectacular scenes abundant of marine life as well as penetrating the ferry wrecks sites.
For such a small island, Gozo has a high concentration of Churches (22 in all). Life in Gozo is at a pleasant and sleepy pace, all wrapped up in a welcoming and harmonious environment. The main sources of income are from Tourism, Agriculture, Fishing together with a number of small and medium-sized enterprises.

Marsalforn bay lies between the villages of Xaghra and Zebbug and forms part of the locality of Zebbug. It is the most popular summer resort on the Island. In summer it throbs with life as hundreds of Gozitan and Maltese families who have a summer house in this bay, go to spend the whole season by the sea. Every day in summer, Gozitan families enjoy their old habit of strolling back and forth along the marina. In winter, the bay is pleasantly quite and only a few residents remain, most of them fishermen busy about repairing their boats and nets.
Marsalforn bay could be divided in three parts. Where the Marsalforn valley outflows in winter, forms in summer a pretty pebbly beach. A beautiful promenade lies to the left and to the side of this beach. Further to the right in front of the police station, the beach becomes quite sandy until further on, the small artificial port known as "Il-Menqa" gives shelter to the fishermen's boats. Marsalforn is by the way one of Gozo's three main fishing villages. The church dedicated to St. Paul has lost a lot of its picturesque prominence to progress but it still serves its original purposes with regular liturgical services. It was built on the recomendations of Bishop Pietro Pace who loved Marsalforn profoundly and even lived and bathed there each summer.
Marsalforn has several swimming and sunbathing including the afore mentioned sandy and pebbly beaches. Besides, the rocky area to the left of the bay up to Santa Marija Point, is a very populary swimming zone. The other side of the bay behind Il-Menqa up to Ghar Qawqla point offers equally good swimming and snorkelling sites.
Motor and sailing boats give the place a lively look in summer while one can opt for a boat cruise around Gozo or just to Comino island. It is also a base for diving enthusiasts, who can choose from a variety of diving schools and diving destinations. Apart from these leisure activities, Marsalforn is very well served with restaurants, bars, self catering apartments and hotels. (http://www.gozo.gov.mt/pages.aspx?page=30)

"Fantastic location, fantastic owners, fantastic apartment!"
First of all a big thank you to Ritienne and Domenic who really went out of their way to help us with our stay. Fantastic hosts who were a pleasure to deal with. The apartment itself is lovely, clean and contemporary. It has 2 bedrooms on one level then a mezzanine floor with sofa and a lovely spacious kitchen diner on the next floor. The apartment is bright and airy with ceiling fans around and also an air conditioning unit on the lower level. Location wise is excellent being just a couple of minutes walk from the sea front with its beach, bars and shops. We stayed for 11 days as we could get flexible flights and if was great that Ritienne and Domenic were able to accept this duration rather than us be restricted to one week or two etc. We travelled with 2 children one of whom is only 15 months old and Ritienne was able to provide us with a travel cot, blankets and high chair. As a family we didn't really find the stairs a problem but as stated in other reviews this may cause problems for anyone with mobility restrictions. I understand though that the owners are looking at the option of a lift for the future which would be excellent. There isn't really too much to add to what has already been said except that if you are looking to visit gozo for the first time and wish to let a place whereby you can have complete trust that any issues or queries you may come across will be rectified or answered by the owners - then this is a great choice. A big thanks again to a Ritienne and Domenic, especially Domenic for helping carry 4 heavy cases up the stairs at 1am :-)
We would like to thank you for your time in reviewing us and for finding our location to your liking. We are so pleased that we made your stay an enjoyable one. Hope to see you back on the island of Gozo.

Lots of stairs but lovely apartment with views. Well equipped, modern and clean. Good location. The owner Ritienne and her husband are lovely & very good managers - picked us up from the ferry, gave us a tour of Marsalforn and lots of info. The diving is amazing on Gozo - John at Scuba Kings is great. The bus service is excellent, and a good way to see the island. Recommend Electra for pizza. Coin operated air con is being added to the apartment for the summer.
Really appreciate your positive feedback. Thanks very much, Ritienne and Domenic.

"Great apartment by the sea"
Great apartment. Spacious, modern and bright, a little cold in winter but come summer the sea breeze will be a bonus! Top floor so great views but bear this in mind if you have any difficulty walking up stairs. Buses just a couple of minutes walk from the apartment which get you around the island and Victoria is 10-15 minutes away by bus. Beautiful walks nearby. Good restaurants in walking distance. Nice welcome from Ritienne who collected us from the ferry. Overall this is a beautiful apartment with great hosts, we loved our relaxing time here.
