Location description from owner
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.

- Very Good
Firstly Dolores was brilliant to correspond with from initial contact. She was prompt, informative and helpful. She picked us up from the ferry although we were arriving very late. A great welcome pack was in the apartment when we arrived. This was very nice when arriving late. First morning looking out the window was a lovely surprise. The view of the surrounding countryside was beautiful. The apartment is a good size. The bedroom has a very comfortable bed. We did not need to use the air conditioning although the temperature's were hot. The apartment always felt very nice temperature. The kitchen has everything needed for self catering. In fact we cooked on more occasions than usual. The washing machine with a dryer was also great. We used only the wash hanging the washing on the stand outside. Here they dried very quickly. The apartment was spotlessly clean and fresh. Plenty towels and bed linen. Dolores was available at all times to contact should she be needed, however everything was in such good order, this was not needed. We very much enjoyed meeting Dolores and her husband Sam and had some lovely chats. They are the perfect hosts. The location of the apartment is perfect. Approx for us it was a 10 minute walk up the hill to the very center of Victoria. The supermarket a short walk around the corner has absolutely everything one could need. Restaurants and all Victoria's attraction are within walking distance as is the Bus Terminal. From here you can connect with any part of the island. A weekly ticket costs €21, which is great value. Although Gozo is a small island you get the feeling it is far bigger. We stayed for 12 nights and could have stayed longer. The bays, beaches, walks, historic attractions, food and the wonderful friendliness of the Gozitan people combine to make this a terrific place to visit if you want something different to "a holiday resort". We totally fell in love with Gozo and intend to return and would be sure to book with Dolores again.
“Very well equipped, comfortable and clean”
Own entrance. Homely atmosphere, with books and a pack of cards. Supermarket close by. I missed a power shower, but adequate.
“home from home”
this apartment is excellent. well equipped, clean and central and next door to the owners who are so friendly. We regard them as our family now as this was our fourth visit.
“Just as to be in Your own home”
We had 3½ weeks in this comfortable, clean and cosy Apartment with a very fine view where Dolores and Sam did their outmost to make us feel well. We therefore could enjoy wonderfull Gozo, its nature, heritage, people and food - and not to forget wine - every day. Weather conditions were excellent for our walks (5-6 ours every day) all over Gozo - we have been in the smallest corner of Gozo so to say. We can only recommend a stay on Gozo by Dolores and Sam - and discover the Island on foot. Best regards Nora and Per Bjarnt, Denmark
“Amazing stay and great location”
We stayed beginning of September for 3 nights. The apartment is very clean and well equipped. Very nice and convenient location, centre of Gozo very close to all attractions. There is parking in front of the apartment too. Very peaceful and beautiful area. Highly recommend it.
“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!
“The very best of apartments all round.”
Just returned from our second visit to this Holiday apartment on the edge of Victoria, and we will be back! Lovely friendly hosts, the apartment is very clean and has everything you need for a comfortable, relaxing holiday. The views from the front window, are so stunningly beautiful. Good wifi, if you need to keep in touch with family.Very good supermarket within walking distance. All seaside towns - close by. Thanks again Sam and Dolores for your kind hospitality.
“Excellent apartment, and great hosts”
Located in a great area of Gozo - Quiet, and close to a supermarket. Apartment was in tiptop condition, and very clean. Hosts are very friendly and willing to help with any queries you may have.
“a wonderful place to stay and enjoy Gozo”
This apartment is everything you could want. well equipped, spotless and central. The owners were extremely helpful, friendly and kind. There were many thoughtful touches, such as beach towels, shopping bags, food in the fridge, a fruit bowl, a selection of reading books. The bus service is regular and air connditioned. we did have some trouble one day getting a bus to Marslforn in the evening as they were so full. walked up to the bus station and caught one there. There is an excellent supermarket nearby and also a chemist. We intend to return to this lovely place as soon as possible. Thank you to Delores and Sam.
“Excellent accomodation for a couple in Victoria in the centre of Gozo”
The apartment has been made in part of the owners house. It has everything needed for 2 adults including washer-dryer and air conditioning. It was spotlessly clean. The owners were very helpful about transport from the airport on Malta and gave us lifts to and fro the ferry to Gozo. They left masses of information about tourist sites etc in Gozo. A small but good supermarket was only 200yds away. Local buses were cheap and it was useful that they went from the bus station in Victoria to all the tourist venues, mostly on the coast.
