Such a lovely holiday...

My wife and I had two lovely weeks in June 2011, with my mother and sister visiting for a few days too. Gozo is a wonderful, relaxing place with great weather and lots of interesting places to walk around and visit. The people are very friendly too, and there are excellent places to eat and shop. The house is also really well located an a nice, quiet and very pretty part of the island, but close to a really handy local supermarket.
The house is every bit as good as all these reviews suggest, and definitely even better than the photos. It has so much character and just sort of winds itself around a lovely central courtyard packed with a wonderful bougainvilla and other lovely plants. The lovely plants also extend round the outside two sides of the house, which have a wonderful view across farmland to the sea. The view is even better from the upstairs terraces and even from the roof itself. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy the sun, breeze, shelter, shade and/or views - whatever you prefer at any given moment.
The inside of the house is great too, with spacious rooms filled with historical features, and more lovely views from the upstairs bedrooms. The house is obviously a well used and loved family holiday home, which means it is filled with bits and pieces (food, cooking utensils, games, music, books, inflatables, snorkelling gear, buckets and spades, toiletries etc) which Polly, the owner, is kind enough to let people use. This really makes a difference, and would be particularly good for groups with children.
The star of the show, of course, is Doris. She is so friendly and helpful and really works hard, not just to keep the house lovely and clean (which it is) but to do anything and everything to ensure that people have a wonderful holiday.
As you will see, we can't recommend this house enough, but please don't book up all the weeks too soon - because we are already looking forward to going back!
