Location description from owner

The Island of Gozo region

The climate is typically Mediterranean and is generally mild in winter. The average temperature for winter is 16 degrees Celsius and it covers the period between December and March. Summer is rather long, dry and sunny, with August being the warmest month. The average temperature for summer is 25 degrees Celsius and it covers the period between April and November.

Until now, pre-historic archaeological remains in the Maltese Islands date back to some 5000 B.C. and the oldest ones were discovered in Gozo.The Ggantija temples found in Xaghra, and other Neolithic temples date back to around 4100-2500 BC.

History starts with the Phoenicians, the famous Mediterranean traders from today's Lebanon who introduced cloth dyeing and maritime trade.

Their close relatives, the Carthaginians, superseded them and, after the three Punic Wars, our islands became part of the Roman Empire. The Roman era had also followed a brief period of Greek influence. Christianity was brought to Malta and Gozo in 60 A.D. by St. Paul, but was consolidated under the Byzantines, from the Eastern Roman Empire. Then the Arabs took control of the Maltese Islands.

The Normans re-established Christianity in Malta and Gozo in 1090. Then followed a period when the new masters of the Maltese islands came, in turn, from the aristocracy of Germany, France and Spain: the Swabians (1194); the Angouvins (1268); the Aragonese (1283) and finally, the Castilians (1410).

The period of the Knights of St. John commenced in 1530, and ended with the arrival of Napoleon in 1798. After the victory at the Great Siege of Malta of 1565, the Order of St. John decided to entrench itself in Malta. Under the leadership of Grandmaster Jean de La Vallette, the hero of the Great Siege, a new fortified capital city for Malta was built - Valletta. From this point onwards, the Maltese islands enjoyed 230 years of relative prosperity. This was a period of demographic expansion, while several villages took the status of towns and even cities. Baroque architecture and dominant coastal fortifications flourished to become permanent Maltese icons.
Napoleon captured the Maltese Islands with unexpected ease in June 1798.

Under the Treaty of Paris (1814) Malta was confirmed as a British Possession. As steam replaced sail, Malta became an important coaling station, all the more so after the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869.

In the Second World War (1939-45), that Malta was brought in the frontline of operations from where it played a strategic role. Gozo lacked targets of military importance and fared much better. Malta however, was continuously targeted by Axis air-raids and was nearly subdued by hunger and deprivation, had not the Santa Marija Convoy saved the day in 15th August 1942. Earlier on, on April 15th, King George VI awarded the George Cross Medal for the gallantry shown by the people of the Island Fortress of Malta.
Independence was granted on 21st September 1964.
Malta became a Republic in 1974. and joined the EU on May 1st 2004.


Zebbug

Zebbug is perched on two adjoining hill tops, and is the highest village above sea level in Gozo. Zebbug enjoys fantastic sea and country views, some would say the best in the whole of the Maltese islands! The village is situated some 3.5 km away from Victoria, the capital of Gozo and the nearby popular seaside resort of Marsalforn is just a short distance away.

Marsalforn Bay is the closest beach being only 15 min away. This is a popular fishing village with wonderful beaches and some of the best restaurants on the island where you can wine and dine by candle light under the clear Mediterranean sky literally inches away from the sea.

Also to be found here are diving schools and all kinds of water sport activities.

“Lovely place in a surprising country”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2015

We travelled to Gozo few weeks ago for the first time. The country did not fulfill our expentancies and, despite I consider it was worth visiting, we do not plan to travel back again. The houses where we stood (in Munxar and Zebbug) were wonderful, especially Ta'Giannmarie where we spent the last week. When staying there is like being in a oasis, living in the past. The swimming-pool it's big enough for a numerous family like ours and actually useful with that warm weather! The only but, would be that the house may need to be cleaned more frequently than once a week. Jeff and his wife took care of us from the first to the last day. If you ever visit Gozo, these two farmhouses are a very good chance the have peaceful holydays. Enjoy!

“Gozo is a wonderfully relaxing getaway”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2013

Ta Giannmarie was the perfect size for us. We were family of 4 (son 9 and daughter 16) with my sister and her husband and my Mum. The property meant that we could still have our own space as there are terraces to escape to. The pool area was our sociable place. The pool was a perfect size to allow my Mum to sit on the steps and enjoy the silliness without being part of it. We enjoyed lots of silliness in the pool. The pool went into shade after lunch so even better for hanging out in and not getting burnt. The location was great too as we were able to snorkel at the very next bay( mins away) and then the bay after that and Marsalforn too. We went to these beachy places at about 4pm. Lots of nice eating places nearby and you did not have to go to the expensive places to get good food. Pizza stop on top of next bay was great value and food good. Jeff and Mariella are lovely hosts. The cleaner is a friendly and helpful lady too. The people of Gozo seemed laid back and happy to see us there. I believe we will go again.

“Lovely private honeymoon rental”

Reviewed 16 Jan 2013

We had a lovely time at Ta' Giannmarie on our honeymoon - we needed somewhere we could properly relax and this was the perfect place. It's very easy to get around and Jeff and Mariela were very helpful. We were a bit wimpy about the pool temperature in April but I can imagine it would be just right in the summer!
