The island of Gozo is a beautiful island that provides excellent diving and sightseeing opportunities. Gozo is only a 20 minute ferry ride away from Malta yet light years away from the hustle and bustle of everyday living!

Gozo is said to be the island ''where time has stood still''. This is true in the sense that it is unspoilt although at the same time the friendliness and charm of the Gozitan people make sure that it is an island which breathes warmth.

"lovely house in a good location with pool and BBQ"

We throughly enjoyed our stay at 'The Owl'. It is a beautiful old house that has been well restored with a fully equipped kitchen. The pool and BBQ area are superb. the owner was very friendly and welcoming. If I had to try to pick holes I would say that the bed sheets could have been better quality, But hey if that's the the worst I can find then we obviously didn't have any problems. We would come back again and would have no hesitation in recommending 'The Owl' to friends..
