This converted farmhouse had everything we needed and more - it is very large, spacious and airy ( the rooms have air-con but we barely used it) well equipped ( there was even a large flat screen TV) and was beautifully clean yet with a lovely rustic feel. The children enjoyed exploring all the nooks and crannies - and was perfect for hide and seek! The pool was great and the poolside area was lovely and private and you didn't feel that you were in the middle of a town.
Gharb is a small town but is well served by at least 4 restaurants and there is a small shop just along the street from the villa which has fresh bread and all the groceries/ wine you could need and we didn't need to drive to Victoria to shop at all.
We loved Gozo - the people were friendly and nearly all speak good English, food good and reasonably cheap- we loved Jeffrey's just 20 yards from the front door of the villa - and everything is within a short drive/ bus journey. We hired a car and driving was stress free despite there being few road markings- the Maltese have a reputation for their bad driving but it seems the Gozitians are quite a different breed. Driving is on left as in the UK which is a bonus!
There are many beautiful beaches and we know we didn't find them all but we loved Xlendi which is a bay with a real Colonial feel and Hondoq which we only discovered on our last day and is a little gem.
Gozo has captured our hearts and we look forward to discovering more on our return - because we came home and immediately booked this fabulous villa again for later in the year!
We used a transfer company (Mayjo) to collect us from the airport and drive us to the ferry over to Gozo and then on to the villa. It was dark when we eventually got there and, although we could have managed it had we hired a car at the airport, this made it stress free as the driver knew where the villa was. We had instructions for the keysafe and entry into the villa was all very straightforward. Mayjo dropped us off a hire car the following morning.
