Excellent family villa on Gozo

  • 5 of 5

We visited Malta the first week in September and the temperatures were still over thirty. The house was excellent and the air conditioning in the bedrooms was particularly welcome as was the pool. We arrived late and traveled to Gozo direct from the airport. The host had been very helpful in arranging transport and sending lots of information prior to our visit. He was waiting for us on arrival at the house and had left some essential provisions in the fridge. The house is in a quiet residential street and there is a good bakery around the corner and a supermarket a ten minute walk away. Unfortunately our son was ill early in the holiday and the host was very kind in arranging a taxi to take him to a clinic in Victoria where he was seen very quickly. This is an excellent property and we would recommend it if you are considering staying on Gozo.

Really really nice!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in this beautiful place in august with other 7 friends. Raimond and Micheal, the hosts, were very kind and Raimond took care of us for every little problem. Gozo is perfect and the house is not very far from the harbour so you can reach malta easily.

The seasides are perfect and the sea is beautiful but if you want to do something after Dinner it's better to go to malta (ferrys leaves all night long), the house was so big and funny with the pool that we did this just one night tho!

Thanks again for everything! Hope to stay there again!

Owner's Response: Hello Gaia. Thanks for your kind words! I understand it's difficult to find things to do after dinner if you don't rent a car. Night buses are a bit scarce from the villages. With a rented car you can spend the evenings having drinks at Marsalforn or Xlendi, or visit the festas or night diving at Mġarr ix-Xini or stargazing at Dwejra... Thanks again for visiting us, greetings from Gozo!

Fantastic property! Great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing stay at the farmhouse in Ghajnsielem, perfect location with all the amenities nearby, sunny garden with a large pool, gas bbq and everything in the house was beyond expectations! Thank you so much Michael Xuereb for your assistance in booking and for making sure everything was fine. Raymond was a great host who came over regularly to make sure the pool was in perfect condition. We will definitely come back again and highly recommend their places! Thank you!

Fantastic week at this villa on Gozo

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this villa in the town of Ghajnsielem, Gozo. The owner, Raymond, was incredibly friendly and offered some great advice on what to see and do in the area. Michael, who we booked the villa with, provided a great deal of information and was very quick to respond to emails. He also paid us a visit during the time we were there to make sure we had everything we needed.

We booked a transfer with Gozo Garage, as suggested by Michael, and it couldn't have been more convenient. We also made use of the local buses which run on time and visit most parts of the island.

The villa itself was well equipped and we were very comfortable during our stay. The pool is lovely and private and perfect for cooling down when it gets too hot.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying at this villa to anyone wanting to escape from it all.

Wonderful stay in a beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love our stay in this house. Description and photos are spot on, the house was very clean and comfortable and the owner and manager both provided excellent service. Extremely welcoming, wonderfully relaxing, we couldn't have hoped for more. We'd highly recommend this property.

Perfect secluded getaway with beautiful pool

  • 5 of 5

The house looks exactly as it does in the photos - 4 clean and well maintained bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, a large kitchen, and indoor and outdoor dining space. There is also a barbeque, which is perfect for cooking outdoors by the pool. The pool was large enough for four to swim in, and the surrounging stone wall provides welcome privacy from neighbours. Everything was very clean, the bathrooms equipped with modern fixtures, and ample clean towels were provided. The stone house is also very cool, which is a welcome relief to the hot weather.

The owner was friendly and helpful, met us when we arrived, and came to check the pool one day. Everything was made very easy for us, from the recommendation of the car rental company, to airport pick up in a taxi.

Within walking distance from the house, there is a supermarket, bakery, fishmonger and butcher. You can walk to the port but we rented a car so that we could access the beaches elsewhere on the island (only a 15 minute drive!).

We would definately recommend this property and our experience in Gozo in general. We are already planning our next trip!

Gozo is a tiny island. All the attractions and sights are not more than a 20 minute drive away. Gozo is an island with beautiful scenery and a warm climate. It's also a tourist destination, so anything you might need during your visit, would be available and not far away.

Getting to the house is easy. We normally suggest to our visitors to book an airport mini-van transfer that will take you from the airport in Malta, to the house in Gozo. We can help you with this. If you want to rent a car while in Gozo you can also book it with the same company. Renting a car in Gozo is normally cheaper then renting it from the airport.

Gozo has beautiful sandy beaches such as Ramla Bay, scuba diving sites at the Azure Window, horse riding at Marsalforn, clubbing at Xlendi, boat-trips to Comino and the Blue Lagoon and any other outdoor activity you would expect from an island in the Mediterranean. Popular activities in Gozo also include, sightseeing, visiting historic buildings, sun-bathing, stargazing and watching the world go by!

While you're here, do try some of Gozo's fine restaurants. Many are found by the water's edge, serving great Maltese wine and beers. A Perfect setting for al fresco dining experience.

The closest village is 3 min drive away while Victoria city is about 5 mins away.

For information about the village this house is in, you can visit the Ghajnsielem Local Council's website.

For the thrill-seekers and the adventurous, visit the 'Gozo Adventures' website.
