The Island of Gozo region
For a farmhouse holiday with a slower tempo, hop to Gozo - Malta’s smaller and greener sister island. Here, the rugged rural landscape is fringed by a spectacular coastline of rocky inlets and red sand beaches. Unspoilt and peaceful, you’ll experience a holiday rich in warm hospitality, rustic beauty and breathtaking scenery. This may well be the Mediterranean's best kept secret!
Xaghra is the place where one can find the Ggantija temples (the oldest free standing temples in the world), Calypso's Cave (where legend has it that Ulysses was captivated by the lure of Calypso), the magnificent Basilica and the golden bays of Ramla and Ghajn Barrani amongst others. Restaurants supermarkets and all other amenities are just a 10 minutes' walk away. We shall be happy to help you with any interesting itinerary and with genuine recommendations on where to eat the best food at some outstanding restaurants.
HIGHLIGHTS OF GOZO:
Holidays in Gozo are perfect for outdoor adventures, particularly with its hot, year-round sunny climate. Lush vegetation, flat-topped hills and craggy cliffs offer superb cycling, rambling and rock climbing. Here, you’ll find fascinating cliffs, caves and caverns home to an abundance of fish and sea life. Conventional sports like golf and tennis are available, and horse riding to experience the dramatic scenery around you.
TASTE THE HISTORY
Historical places of interest are found everywhere in Gozo. A must-see for all holiday goers are the megalithic Ggantija temples - thought to be even older than the Egyptian Pyramids. Gozo also has a museum of archaeology in Victoria which is full of interesting remains and pre-historic artefacts. Among its other highlights are the famous and imposing Citadel, and several caves and grottoes dotted around the island – alongside some of the most spectacular, awe-inspiring views in all of the Mediterranean.
When you choose a villa holiday in Gozo, you’ll find fabulous al fresco dining and a wide variety of authentic dishes to try. Life here moves at a leisurely pace, even during the summer holidays, and revolves around farming and fishing – so expect to sample some of the best local produce from tomatoes, peppers and fruits to freshly-caught seafood. To accompany these delights, visitors are treated to delicious, just-baked crispy bread and local wines served young and chilled. Most local bars offer Gozo’s traditional snack, the 'Pastizzi', which is a flaky pastry parcel filled with ricotta cheese or peas.
Gozo is not an island for those seeking the bright lights and nightlife of other Mediterranean resorts. Here, the pace of life is slow and relaxed. On Gozo, the main town of Victoria has a thriving cultural life of its own with attractions ranging from opera to horse racing and firework displays at fiesta time. Locals go out of their way to welcome visitors, particularly during village feasts which take place throughout the summer holidays. You'll be tempted to stay put, simply soaking up the atmosphere and scenery – but with plenty of traditional local bars and restaurants to choose from, you can have the best of both worlds.
MUST DO'S WHILE IN GOZO:
The Inland Sea and azure Window, a secluded pebbly bathing pool with crystal clear waters and a sheer cliff backdrop, can be found at dwejra in the Northwest of Gozo.
The medieval citadel of Victoria now houses the 17th Cenury cathedral and a collection of fascinating museums and fantastic views.
Visit the Ggantija temples in Xaghra, a stone's throw from the farmhouse, which were built around 3,600 BC. These giant stone structures are even older than Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids – much older.
Go walking, especially in Spring, and diving in one of the best and most renowned crystal clear waters in all of Europe.
Savour the local delicacies like goat's cheese and the exquisite fresh seafood at village restaurants and beachside taverns.
