The Island of Gozo region
Gozo, the second-largest island in the Maltese Archipelago lies about 5 km apart from the island of Malta and has an area of about 67 square kms. The Maltese islands are situated in the centre of the Mediterrenean, 93 km south of Italy and 290 km north of North Africa. This peaceful island has a population of around 31,000 people and its friendly inhabitants are known as Gozitans.
Gozo is rich in historical locations such as Ggantija Temples which along with the Megalithic temples of Malta are the world's oldest religious structures. Other places of interest are the Citadel, Calypso's cave, Fort Chambrai, and Ta' Pinu Basilica.
In this tranquil island one can also find attractive beaches. The most popular are Xlendi, Marsalforn, Ramla l-Hamra, Hondoq ir-Rummien and Mgarr ix-Xini.
The climate in Gozo is typically Mediterrenean. It is generally mild in Winter with an average temperature of 16 degree celcius. Summer in Gozo is rather long and sunny with an average temperature of 25 degree celcius. It covers the period from April and November with August being the warmest month.
The peaceful village of Munxar lies to the south of the island of Gozo between Xlendi valley and the village of Sannat. Munxar is very close to the capital Victoria and has a population of about 1019 people.
This village offers spectacular imagery such as Xlendi valley, Ghancija valley, and Bardan cliffs. Also worth mentioning are the remnants of a prehistoric temple at Ta' Marziena which date approximately to the Ggantija period.
The Parish church, a small baroque temple is dedicated to St. Paul. The feast of St. Paul falls on the 10th of February which is also a national, public holiday. However the outside festivities are celebrated on the third Sunday of each May.
A swift ten-minute countrywalk takes you to Xlendi Bay, a very popular tourist resort. Wedged between majestic cliffs, this fishing village is one of the most picturesque spots on the island.

"Fantastic accommodation, pool, views, jacuzzi and lovely owners"
The farmhouse and grounds were larger than expected and we got a lovely surprise when we came through the front door. The place was immaculate and clean. The pool and Jacuzzi were great and loved by the children and grandchildren. Massimo and his father John were very helpful and friendly. The 10 of us had a wonderful stay. It was rather windy at times, but so was the whole of Europe. I have no hesitation in recommending this farmhouse for your holiday.
