Steeped in myth and brimming with cultural character you'll never be bored. Time may have stood still but Gozo has something for everyone. 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.
Beaches and seaside resorts in Gozo:

Xaghra is the largest and most sought after village in Gozo. It is situated on a hill which is one of the hills on the emblem of Gozo. The village with breahtaking views of valleys and beaches. The village of Xaghra is very popular as there are the most popular places in Gozo and a lot of history.

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.

“Amazing villa in beautiful location”

Reviewed 29 Oct 2015

The villa was everything we expected and more. We were a group of 6 adults and we had more than enough space. The villa was bright with beautiful large rooms and we especially enjoyed the terrace and pool area for relaxing and dinner in the evenings. The villa is walking distance from Xaghra square with some lovely restaurants, where we had some great meals and drinks. Pauline and Mario were fantastic hosts assisting us with everything and the transfer to/from the airport made for a stress free holiday. Bozo is a beautiful island with stunning views in all directions. You can see most things by local bus but if you want to see more and also go to Malta I would recommend hiring a car.

“Lovely stay”

Reviewed 11 May 2015

The farmhouse is located near Xaghara centre which means access to shops and restaurants. It was a shame that while we were there the main square was under construction. It is also a short drive away from a lovely sandy beach. The farmhouse was well equipped. The kids loved the space, there is definitely ample room for two families. It is made of stone so is cool, which I can imagine is a relief in the hotter months. For us the noise carried quite a bit which was a little tricky trying not wake up the small children. The outside space and pool area were a real delight. We spent many happy hours out here. The kitchen was also well equipped and we were able to prepare good meals. Bedding was limited. There were no mattress covers provided and the sheets had a plastic underlay. That could be improved. Overall we had a great trip and came home feeling thoroughly relaxed. I would recommend this farmhouse if you are planning to stay on Gozo.

“Fantastic villa, lovely island, friendly owners”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2014

There were ten of us - 6 adults, 3 children and 1 baby. Large really nice villa and very helpful and friendly owners. Large kitchen with large dining table and all white goods e.g. fridge/freezer, washing machine etc. Good size pool with loungers and lovely views over the countryside. It was very hot during our stay so we were thankful for the air conditioning particularly at night. You pay extra for this and obtain the pay cards from the owners. We thought it was good value costing roughly 10 euros per night for all five bedrooms. The village is quite close - perhaps 15 minute stroll with plenty of restaurants and mini markets, We also did major shops at the large supermarkets in Victoria or on the way to Victoria. Would recommend you use the owners car hire service on the island and they will also collect you from the airport and take you to the villa (via the ferry) and return. We are hoping to return again in the future as we had a fantastic holiday!

“No title could do justice...”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2014

No title could do justice to the experience of staying here. Pauline was a great host; helpful, on hand when needed yet unintrusive. She gave local recommendations when asked for and was a breeze to communicate and organise with. It is hard to appreciate a good host until one experiences to the contrary, but we were in very good hands from start to finish. The farmhouse itself is beautiful, quite classically decorated and the rooms are well-appointed. If you're reading this then I'm guessing you want to know whether or not you want to stay here. Here are some things which may help. Highlights (for us): - the gas BBQ & grill on the patio - the incredible view, including sunrise from the balcony. - the location is so peaceful but so connected for when you want (see below). No disturbances. - within hazy-stumbling distance of Xaghra Square (honestly 7, straight-line minutes), Ramla Bay (20) and some really old ancient things (10). - air conditioning - spacious, not just in sleeping capacity but also in living areas i.e. kitchen and living room. It can entertain as many as it can sleep. - Gozo transport is incredibly cheap, efficient and good quality. - the local community are warm, good-humoured and friendly. Some things to be prepared for: - mosquitos will have a go, unless the farmhouse is since equipped with nets, guards or working deterrents. - that's about it. In case it's helpful - we're in our mid-twenties. We saw mostly older families/friends here (and not overrun with tourists in May/June). We found Gozo & Malta neither too quiet nor too hectic, and with plenty of room for either extreme if you so desire. Take a good book for the poolside and go clubbing in La Grotta on Friday night/morning. Gozo is beautiful. You should go. Just leave room for us.

“Fantastic Holiday - Perfect Villa”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2014

We stayed in Gozo at the end of May/beginning of June. We were a party of 4 adults and a 4 year old child. The owners of the villa, Pauline & Mario, made us feel very welcome, and were always on hand if needed. The transport, arranged by Pauline, from the airport to the villa was faultless. The villa itself was beautiful, Very spacious inside, and perfect for large parties and very well equiped. The pool was a big hit with our daughter, who was the first one in every morning at 7:30. We hired a car for a few days & visited Malta. We also purchased a weeks bus ticket (€6.50 per adult), which gave us unlimited travel around Gozo. The village itself is quiet, but has a few restaurants anfd supermarkets. We had lunch a few times in the cafe/patisserie in the square by the church. Very good value & delicious cakes. We used the Lighthouse supermarket, the fruit & veg market stall & the Aldi by Victoria. For dinner, the best restaurant to visit is Tal Furnar. The food is delicious. We went a few times, and there were so many tasty things on the menu. The owners were very friendly, and we loved chatting with them. Portions are massive. If it is a relaxing break that you are looking for, then Gozo is perfect.

“Wonderful week of relaxation”

Reviewed 11 May 2014

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”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2013

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.”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2012

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!”

Reviewed 8 Apr 2012

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.

“An excellent property in a good location - we had a great time.”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2011

Is Setah is a lovely property. Good location with nice views. Very clean and well equipped. Lovely bedrooms (though pillows very hard!) and plenty of bathrooms. The pool was great and good size too. Very friendly owner and transfers from airport were excellent. The village of Xaghra was a good base to see the rest of Gozo with some nice restaurants in the square as well. We really enjoyed the open air jeep we rented too!.

We live next door to this villa and we always ask our clients if everything is ok and if they need anything they can always tell us. So if you told us about it we would have been more than pleased to give you other pillows to choose from as we have different types.It was such a small thing for us to do.
