The Island of Gozo region

Gozo, which in Maltese is called Ghawdex (pronounced: Awdesh), is a derivation of other older names such as Gaulos. It has an area of 67 square kms, is 14 kms long and 7 kms wide. With a coastline of 43 km, it is the second largest island of the Maltese Archipelago that, together with the smaller isle of Comino and the main island of Malta form the Republic of Malta. Gozo is popularly called The Island of Calypso, that is a nickname originating from the Greek mythological location of Ogygia referred to in Homer's Odyssey. In this epic poem, the fabled island was controlled by the nymph Calypso, who had detained the Greek hero Odysseus for seven long years as prisoner of love.

The Maltese Islands are situated in the centre of the Mediterranean - 93 km south of Italy and 290 km north of North Africa. Gozo lies about 5 km in the North West of Malta and the distance between Cirkewwa in Malta and Mgarr Harbour in Gozo, involves a 25 minute ferry crossing. It therefore enjoys warm summers and mild winters and this makes it the ideal holiday destination at any time of the year.

The official coat-of-arms of Gozo is a field divided horizontally: the upper two thirds silver; the lower one third made up of six parallel wavy horizontal bands alternately silver and black, the top one silver, the bottom one black. Upon the upper part, three slightly pointed hills in black, the centre hill higher and in front of the other two hills. Above the shield is a mural coronet with five eschaugettes and a sally-port in gold. Simultaneously with this emblem, Gozo earned its popular nickname the Island of the Three Hills probably derived from the hilly view when observed from mainland Malta. Throughout the years Gozo has been vastly influenced by the cultures and history of a series of dominators including the Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Spanish, the Knights of St. John, the French and the British, who all left their mark on the cultural and the folkloristic heritage of the population

Kercem

The Hamlet of Sta. Lucia surrounded by the Village of Kercem, St Lawrence and just minutes from the Capital of Gozo - Victoria. Sta. Lucia is sometimes forgotten it is so quiet, an ideal place for writers and artists indeed.

Santa Lucija church was first recorded in 1575, and rebuilt from its foundations in the 1790's; the latest enlargement taking place in 1950. Santa Lucija (Saint Lucy) is invoked by those who have problems with their eyesight, and many flock to the church on 13 December, this being the feastday. The village square is marked by a traditional stone cross.

The village is right next door to Kercem and boasts some stunning countryside. The area was once known for its fresh water springs and it is still one of the greenest areas on Gozo.

Santa Lucia was voted a European Destination of Excellence in 2013, namely for three events which take place in this hamlet every year: the festival of light (taking place in December); the Wine Festival - Bis-Sahha - (taking place in June) and the Ikla Tan-Nanna , a traditional granny's dinner, using mainly local produce and served from locals in traditional costumes, which is held at the village Square in June/July each year.

“Authentic, friendly and very accomodating.”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2014

First of all I would like to say the detailed instructions from the airport to the ferry terminal Marvik supplied were second to none. The ferry was a very pleasant journey and the drive to the farmhouse wasn't far at all (did take us slightly longer than it should as missed one of the turnings). On arrival we were met by Victoria who is wonderful, very helpful and friendly. The welcome pack is a very nice touch for new arrivals and was gratefully received. Overall the service from start to finish was impeccable from the initial enquiry until our departure. The best feature of the property is of course the pool which many a happy hour was spent in or by the pool. The bedrooms are very spacious apart I must say from the one in the main in the part of the house, this is not a criticism just an observation and in keeping with the style of the farmhouse is to be expected. The only criticism I have on the accommodation is perhaps the patio table and chairs could be replaced as they are looking a tad tired. All in all we were very happy with the accommodation and the location. Gozo is the kind of place that wherever you are staying (except perhaps a hotel) you are in the locality of the locals. I would definitely recommend this farmhouse to friends and family. Thanks for making our stay as enjoyable as it was from the initial booking to our last day.

“Fabulous house”

Reviewed 24 Feb 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay at Ta Nikola. It was comfortable and well equipped and we were very well looked after by Victoria and Tony, who gave us copious amounts of wood for the wood burner as it was cold at night, also fresh eggs which were delicious. Santa Lucija is a lovely village, quite and peaceful and surrounded by lovely countryside. We went on several delightful walks and enjoyed many stunning views. We particularly liked the view over the roof tops to Victoria from the terrace outside our bedrooms. My only criticism is that the lighting in the living room wasn't bright enough.
