Villas in Gozo

For a villa holiday with a slower tempo, head to Gozo - Malta’s smaller and greener sister island. Here the rugged rural scenery is fringed by a spectacular coastline of rocky inlets and red sand beaches. Beneath the waves the landscape is just as impressive - a real paradise for divers of all abilities. Unspoilt and peaceful, you’ll experience a villa holiday rich in warm hospitality, rustic beauty and historic and cultural intrigue.

Gozo - Culture, heritage and authentic charm

For those who want to stray off the tourist trail on holiday, yet experience the brilliance of European culture, our Gozo villas could be just the place for you. Small but breathtaking, this unspoilt island is a haven for natural explorers, with incredible sights both above and below the waves.

  • Gozo Activities

    Villa holidays to Gozo are perfect for outdoor adventures, particularly with its hot, year-round sunny climate. Lush vegetation, flat-topped hills and craggy cliffs offer superb cycling, rambling and rock climbing. Here, you’ll find fascinating arches, caves and caverns home to an abundance of fish and sea life. Conventional sports like tennis is available, whilst horse riding is a popular way to experience the dramatic scenery around you.

  • Gozo Food

    When you choose a villa holiday in Gozo, you’ll find fabulous al fresco dining and a wide variety of authentic dishes to try. Life here moves at a leisurely pace, even during the summer holidays, and revolves around farming and fishing – so expect to sample some of the best local produce from tomatoes, peppers and fruits to freshly-caught seafood. To accompany these delights, visitors are treated to delicious, just-baked crispy bread and local wines served young and chilled. Most local bars offer Gozo’s traditional snack, the 'Pastizzi', which is a flaky pastry parcel filled with ricotta cheese or peas.

  • Gozo History

    Historical places of interest are found everywhere in Gozo. A must-see for all villa holiday goers are the megalithic Ggantija temples - thought to be even older than the Egyptian Pyramids. Gozo also has a museum of archaeology in Victoria which is full of interesting remains and pre-historic artefacts. Among its other highlights are the famous and imposing Citadel, and several caves and grottoes dotted around the island – alongside some of the most spectacular, awe-inspiring views in all of the Mediterranean.

  • Gozo Nightlife

    Gozo is not an island for those seeking the bright lights and nightlife of other Mediterranean resorts. Here, the pace of life is slow and relaxed. On Gozo, the main town of Victoria has a thriving cultural life of its own with attractions ranging from opera to horse racing and firework displays at fiesta time. Locals go out of their way to welcome visitors, particularly during village feasts which take place throughout the summer holidays. You'll be tempted to stay put in your holiday villa, simply soaking up the atmosphere and scenery – but with plenty of traditional local bars and restaurants to choose from, you can have the best of both worlds.

  • Gozo Holidays - Points of Interest

    • The Inland Sea, a secluded pebbly bathing pool with crystal clear water and sheer cliffs, can be found at Dwejra in the southwest of Gozo

    • The medieval citadel at Victoria now houses the 17th Century cathedral and a collection of fascinating museums and fantastic views

    • Visit the Ggantija temples which were built around 3,600 BC. These giant stone structures are older than Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids

    • Go walking, especially in spring, and diving in one of the best spots in Europe

    • Visit the tiny island of Comino and the crystal clear waters of the blue lagoon.

Lack of specific information in the villa informing us of local amenities and services, eg parking in Victoria, places to go easily on Malta, etc

Coulsdon Family (the eldest child is at school)
Gozo is a beautiful island, steeped in history and with some amazing geological rock formations. Very easy to explore but do need a car. Roads are not too bad. Pace of life is slow and chilled out. Very hot in August, AC in car and villa was a must. Loads of good places to eat, friendly locals.
Very arid and dusty in August.

Stokesay, Shropshire Family with grown up
We really enjoyed getting away from it all and Gozo was perfect. Our favourite part was the villa, followed by the beautiful Citadel in Victoria. We loved the small and relatively uncrowded beaches and found some lovely, welcoming local restaurants to try some delicious fresh local food.
The only slightly negative point was the hire car. It was really underpowered to the point where I had to reverse down a hill as it didn't have the power to make a hill start.

St Albans Family (the eldest child is at school)
Quiet relaxed location. relatively unspolt and not overrun with tourists.

Good bus network for travelling around the island and handy ferry service to Malta.

Some good well stocked supermarkets handy for self catering.

Great for diving.
Whilst driving was relatively easy some rather erratic drivers on the road.

Not a venue for those seeking a busy night life.

Quiet location
Felt very secluded and not over looked
Plenty of space in the villa
Lovely sized pool and outdoor area
A treat having a washing machine, dishwasher and air conditioning in the bedrooms
Only a very small negative was not being able to park the car nearer to our villa as we would have blocked the road.

Tadley Family (the eldest child is at school)
Quick to drive anywhere on the island. Plenty of amenities. Interesting places to visit - Ggantija Temples, Ta'Kola Windmill in Xaghra (whose square is lovely with great choice of restaurants/cafes)
We were near Victoria in Fiesta week (which was not in any literature before we went) so were woken at 8am every morning by very loud fireworks!
