The Island of Gozo region
Gozo is the second largest island of the Maltese Archipelago. The climate consists of warm summers and mild winters and this makes it an ideal holiday destination at any time of the year. Gozo has a varied geology with typical flat-topped hills.
The population of this island is over 31000 people which amounts to one-twelfth of the overall population of Malta, with Gozo covering approximately one-third of the area of mainland Malta. This means that the island of Gozo is not overpopulated, and therefore greener and quite more peaceful.
Places of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Victoria and its attractions
- the Dwejra bay area including the Azure window, inland sea, fungus rock, and the Blue Hole (voted one of Europe's top 10 diving sites)
- Ta' Pinu Basilica
- Ramla Bay and Calypso Cave
- Ggantija temples: a megalithic temple complex erected during the Copper Age (c. 3,600-2,500 B.C.)
- Ta'Cenc: one of the few remaining tracts of open countryside left in the Maltese Islands. An area of outstanding scenic beauty, it is also a vital habitat for dwindling communities of rare plants and animals.
-several wonderful bays for swimming are found around the island.
Considering that Gozo has an area of 67 square kms with a length of 14 kms and width of 7 kms, all areas of Gozo are within easy walking /driving distance from it's centre-Victoria.
This apartment is a short walk to the centre of the town of Victoria which is the capital city of Gozo. Since Victoria is in the centre of the island, the location of the apartment is an ideal base to explore the surrounding island. Every beach, village or attraction is only a short drive away and due to the small size of the island, everywhere can be reached on foot for those who prefer walking. The main bus station is only a short walk up the road.
VICTORIA includes 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. Within the Citadel there is the beautiful St. Mary's Cathedral and the Law Courts, as well as the Cathedral Museum, the Gozo Museum of Archaeology, the Folklore Museum, the Citadel Armoury, the Folklore Museum, the Old Prison, and the Natural Science Museum.
In Victoria there is an open market in Independence square that shares the square with several open air cafes, as well as the magnificent St.George's Basilica and other churches. A web of narrow streets around St. George's Basilica are the oldest in town and are worth a walk around. There are also all amenities in Victoria including the bus station, shops, restaurants, banks and grocery stores.
There are two major feasts in the centre of Victoria which are the feast of St. George in July and the week long celebrations of the feast of Assumption of the Virgin Mary, with the main day of festivities being on the 15th of August. These feasts are characterised by church functions, band marches in the streets, horse racing, decorations, lights and wonderful fireworks displays.
The apartment is also a 25 minute walk or 5 minute drive to MARSALFORN, which is the most popular summer resort on the Island. Here there are many restaurants that cater to any taste as well as a sandy and pebbly beach and rocky platforms to swim from. From here one can also take a boat cruise around Gozo or to Comino island. There are also a diving school offering a variety of diving destinations.

This flat is nice enough but we can't be as effusive as other reviewers. A lot of this is due to the fact that we stayed during a wet winter period, and the apartment became very humid. We soon … More
Thank you for taking the time to review 'Holiday Apartment in Victoria'. I am sorry to hear that you encountered a few problems during you stay. Unfortunately, Malta is very humid throughout the year since it is an island. The relative humidity is consistently high and rarely falls below 40%. That is why we leave a dehumidifier in the apartment. It helps to remove humidity and warm up the air. It is only a small apartment and one air conditioning unit in the bedroom is usually enough to warm the whole apartment effectively.
As for the washing machine issue, we are sorry to hear that you had difficulties to use the spin cycle only. If you had called us or emailed us, we would surely have sent somebody over immediately to guide you on how to use this function. We pride ourselves on helping our guests and go out of our way to make their stay as pleasant as possible.
Thanks for choosing to stay at our apartment and for your review.

"Очень хорошие условия"
Мы останавливались на 10 дней - с 25 декабря по 5 января 2014. Апартаменты очень удобно расположены: с одной стороны - недалеко от автобусной остановки, с другой - на очень тихой улице, с небольшим трафиком. Кроме того, в 5 минутах ходьбы расположен большой супермаркет со всем необходимым. Центр столицы с автобусной станцией также в пределах небольшой пешей прогулки. Из апартаментов открывается прекрасный вид на зеленые холмы.
В апартаментах есть все необходимое. Стиральная машина даже с сушкой белья, что было весьма актуально в зимний период. Хозяева - Долорес и Сэм - очень гостеприимные и радушные люди! Встретили и проводили нас на машине с пристани. В Рождество, когда мы прибыли, ни один магазин не работал. Но в апартаментах нас ждал сюрприз - небольшой набор продуктов на первое время (включая хлеб, ветчину, сыр, овощи, фрукты, а также рождественский кекс с печеньем и даже бутылка шампанского!). Долорес была готова помочь нам в любых мелочах. Рекомендую всем!
