Avoid the morning race for a poolside lounger and treat yourself to a holiday villa with a private pool. Take the family, take your friends, or simply take yourself and enjoy the bliss of your own pool - in your own place!
Private indoor or outdoor pools are the perfect way of keeping the kids entertained onsite and offer hours of fun for all. Bathe your feet in comfort while you relax with a long cool drink in the early evening or sample the delights of a night swim in balmy climates.
Whether secluded in the mountains, hidden in the depths of the country or by a sunny beach, renting a villa with a pool direct from the owner makes privacy a luxury all can afford.

Thank you for your most positive response and I am so pleased that your holiday was a great success. The villa and Gozo must tick all the right boxes for you as this is your fourth visit over the last 7 or 8 years. Once the magic of Gozo hits you, it is difficult to stay away! As you say, the sea food in Gozo is quite special - the variety and the freshness is second to none. On most days early in the morning, there is a fish stall in the man square at the top of Republic Street, or at St. Francis Square a few minutes walk away. Most of the fish is local to the waters around the island and has been caught the night before, so it is as fresh as can be. You need to get to them before 10.30 in the morning as they often sell out after that and are packing away.There is also a wonderful fishmongers on the way to Mgarr, the harbour.
