The Island of Gozo region
Fontana, a suburb of the city of Victoria, has developed into a village in its own right. It lies on the Rabat–Xlendi road strained between the historic capital of the island and the spectacular bay of ix-Xlendi. People began inhabiting the place attracted by the several fresh water springs in the area.
Fontana, simply known to the people of Gozo as It-Triq tal-Ghajn, the way to the spring, took its name from a bountiful spring at the bottom of the main road of the village known as Il-Ghajn il-Kbira, the principal spring. The spring flows close to the spot where three valleys, Wied il-Lunzjata, Wied Siekel, and Wied tas-Saqwi, converge into Wied ix-Xlendi. Wied is Maltese for valley. The village is thus very aptly called the village of valleys and springs. The name Fontana is Italian for spring.
Victoria is the capital town of the island of Gozo .The name Victoria, locally known as Rabat, was given to the medieval town of Gozo in 1887 in honour of the famous British Queen's Golden Jubilee celebrations. At the same instance, the town was also raised to the status of a city; then officially known as Citta' Victoria.
The town of Victoria embraces both the Citadel, the ancient city of the Island, as well as Rabat, the old suburb of the Citadel.
There are many places of historical and cultural interest in Victoria and a visit to the Citadel is considered a must. From these fortifications one can enjoy a superb view of the whole Island. Also within the Citadel there is the Gozo Cathedral and the Law Courts, as well as the Cathedral Museum, the Gozo Museum of Archaeology, the Folklore Museum,theCitadel Armoury,the Folklore Museum,the Old Prison, and the Natural Science Museum.
The centre of the capital city of Gozo is Pjazza Indipendenza, known as it-Tokk. In the mornings, there is an open market that shares the square with several open air cafes. The magnificent St.George's Basilica is located in the centre of the old town, just off the open air market in Pjazza Indipendenza. The cobweb of narrow streets around St. George's Basilica are the oldest in town and are worth a walkaround.
In Triq ir-Repubblika (Republic Street), Victoria's main street, there are all kinds of shops, a couple of shopping arcades, pharmacies, banks, the Police Headquarters, the Bishop's Chancery, as well as La Stella and Leone Band Clubs who own the Astra and Aurora opera theatres respectively. In lower Republic Street, one also finds Villa Rundle Public Gardens which were laid out by the British in 1910. These gardens, with a variety of local and imported trees and a fountain, are an oasis of peace in the hustle and bustle of the busy town.
Close to the crossroads is Victoria's main parking area and the Bus Terminus.
During February Gozo Carnival is held in Victoria. On the 3rd week of July there is the feast of St George and on 15 th August the feast of St Mary.
Being located in the outskirts of the capital city of Gozo, all places of interest in the capital including the Citadel fortifications, museums, cathedral, churches, public gardens, shopping malls are at walking distance from residence. It is also recommended to visit these places of interest on foot to avoid parking problems in the city. Other towns and places of interest like the Neolitic temples of Ggantija are about 10 mins drive from residence.
Xlendi bay is situated nearby with just a 20 minute walk from residence.
All other beaches are about 10 to 15 minute by car. At the end of the road, there is a bus stop and the bus terminus is just 10 min walk from residence. There is daily bus service to all villages, most beaches and Mgarr harbour from here.Mgarr Harbour is 10 min drive from residence.

"Disappointed not what we expected!"
One of the best outdoor villa locations we have been too in Gozo. However we were disappointed to find that the villa itself it not as described. This is not a bungalow as it has two other storeys bui… More

"Amazing outside space!"
Outside space and pool area was amazing with the added attraction for the children of almost a petting zoo at the end of the garden. The barbeque area was great too. We felt the kitchen was not very well equipped for such a large group. (There were 10 altogether.) But the owner was extremely friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Definitely the best pool and outdoor area we have stayed in.

"Great garden, but....."
We stayed here in May 2013 and there is undeniably a lovely garden with lots of nooks and crannies to sit, read, eat and relax. It is also located in a quiet road with open views across the valley. Beautiful goats and chickens at the end of the garden. So far so good.
But I have to say we were a bit disappointed when we arrived. The decor was dated, the sheets old and un-ironed, the pillows thin and lumpy, the towels had seen better days long ago, no wine glasses, nothing for making coffee, no cushions for the sun beds (we used the quilts!) - though wine glasses and coffee maker did appear when we asked for them. Yes there's a football table in the living room, but you have to pay for every game which limits its usage.
Which is all a shame because this could be so much better with a bit of care and attention paid to it. I'd happily give it 5 stars if it had that attention, but it all just felt a bit...tired.
Please note that the linen and towels were changed in the begining of the summer season .Infact they were changed in June. Sorry to hear about this but had you informed us, we would have changed them before. As regards soccer table it is not mine but is leased and so i cannot make it free.
