Its rugged landscape begs exploration, it's rocky inlets make it the perfect spot to snorkel and history lovers will be spoilt for choice. From beaches and churches, to museums and world-heritage sites, like the Neolithic Temples in Xaghra and the Azzurre Window in Dwejra you'll be glad you chose to explore this tiny island. There is a lot to do while in Gozo like; Diving, Walking, Rambling, Cycling, Gastronomy, sports, nightlife and also language learning.

The Neolithic Ggantija Temples in Xaghra are a World Heritage Site and completely unique. The oldest freestanding temples in the world, they date back to 3500BC and they are attributed to a mythical giantess. These temples are older than the Pyramids of Egypt.

These temples are a must-see for any Gozitan vacation.

There are also the stalactites and stalagmites caves and the windmill.

There is also Calypso Cave which is overlooking a large sandy beach called Ramla Bay.This is where Gozo got it's name as the Island of Calypso. The legend says that Calypso who was a nymph, saved Ulysses who got shipwrecked and kept him with her for seven years.

.There is also Ramla Bay ( Ramla il-Hamra ) which is the largest, the most popular and most unspoilt beach on Gozo. It is awash with red sand. The sea is shallow and perfect for children, except on windy days. In the summer months it is popular with swimmers, sun worshipers and idlers who sit around tables beneath sun umbrellas at a kiosk, sipping cool drinks and nibbling snacks. During the winter Ramla l-Hamra affords pleasant peaceful walks. A statue dedicated to Our Lady of Hope stands vigil in the middle of the beach.

Apart from all these Xaghra is the only village which has got a very nice square lined with cafetterias, bars and restaurants which are open all day. People selling fresh vegetables and fruit. Pharmacy, butcher shops, newspaper shops, banks etc..A square where you can spend some time drinking and talking to the local friendly people of Xaghra.

"L-Ghorfa farmhouse was an amazing place to stay in Gozo"

I went on holiday with 7 friends, we are all aged between 24-26 and we had a brilliant time. We stayed in L-Ghorfa which is the farmhouse next door to Is-Setah, and is also owned by the lovely Pauline… More

"Wonderful week of relaxation"

From the start of the booking process to the end of our trip, our experience with Pauline and Mario at Is-Setah was outstanding. Pauline was very responsive to initial inquiries and helpful in answering any questions we had about the property. Just to give an example: when we arrived in Malta, our flight was delayed, and we ended up missing the intended ferry. Mario stayed at the ferry terminal in Gozo personally to make sure we ended up at the right place, even though it was after 1:00 am on Easter Sunday. They were also very helpful when we needed them during the week, as they live quite close to the rental property.

The villa itself is very spacious. The common room is large, and with the open-plan stone staircase, feels gigantic - not to mention the great views of the valley out to the sea. The kitchen was well-equipped, although a few more wine glasses would have been appreciated. The entire house was immaculately clean upon our arrival. The terrace area and the pool were wonderful spaces to relax and enjoy the view, and the barbecue grill provided a lot of entertainment. The pool area is especially beautiful at night: very well-lit and warm. The plants were well cared-for.

The bedrooms and bathrooms had very high quality furnishings (beds made of real wood, stone bathrooms - this is not IKEA furniture). The architectural details of the house (especially upstairs) really made the place interesting - arches and balconies, a large staircase, the entryway - and we appreciated the attention to detail.

The village of Xaghra is really an ideal base from which to visit Gozo. It's minutes away from Victoria, but it feels isolated enough to be "away from it all." The Xaghra village square is within walking distance of this villa, and we thought the restaurants on the square made it worth several return trips. That being said, although it's not strictly necessary, I would recommend a car rental, since nearly any place on the entire island will be accessible to you within 20 minutes.

It was hard to leave at the end of the week! Thanks, Pauline and Mario!

"Wonderful Wedding"

We booked the two adjacent villas from Paulina and Mario so that family and friends could all be together for our daughter's wedding. The accommodation was of the highest quality with a glorious patio area and pool for BBQ's and swimming. Perfectly located for the best beach (Ramla) in Gozo and ideal for the ferry to Comino's Blue Lagoon and Malta. Gozo is far more sedate than Malta and all the more beautiful for it with great seaside locations such as Marselforn and Xlendi, which have excellent sea food restaurants. The inland sea and Azure window is also worth a visit. We did kayaking, scuba and snorkling. The people are very friendly and Paulina and Mario were superb hosts, even giving the bride and groom a card, bottle of fizz and local garland to hang on the door...the villas and the people definitely made the wedding break the great success it was and we will definitely go back as well as recommend them to anyone else contemplating a trip to Gozo....wonderful.Thank You Paulina & Mario.

"An amazing family holiday in superb accommodation on a lovely island."

The accommodation ranks among the best our family have holidayed in (the weather was extremely hot so we made good use of the lovely swimming pool). The villa is ideally situated in the village with only a short walk to a handy food store and not far from the main square of Xaghra where there are some really good small restaurants. We made a few sightseeing trips which were arranged for us by Pauline and Mario. We would all love to go back to the tranquil, friendly and beautiful island of Gozo again sometime in the future. Special thanks to the owners Pauline and Mario for all the Help they gave us.

"Excellent villa - just wonderful!"

Absolutely loved staying here - a beautiful villa in a very pretty village. From the welcome at the airport from Mario to our last goodbye after 2 weeks, we felt thoroughly well looked after and very relaxed. The villa had everything we needed including beautiful verandas with great views, big bathrooms, a decent pool and comfy beds. The air con was brilliant and provided a good nights sleep for us and our baby. The BBQ was huge and was used every night and the pool safety gate used constantly - what a thoughtful touch for parents! The village, only a short walk away, had some lovely restaurants, a couple of good (quiet) bars and an excellent pizza place. We walked into Marsalforn most days and really enjoyed the small beach and first class restaurants. This holiday ticked all the boxes - thanks to Pauline and Mario! We'll be back.
