For those who want to be more independent, Gozo has plenty of self catering options, from simple seaside flats in Marsalforn to luxury farmhouses, almost all of which come with free WiFi, air conditioning, and an outdoor swimming pool. Built from the soft pastel coloured traditional limestone, with shaded courtyards, thick stone walls and beamed interiors, renovated Gozo farmhouses offer surprising luxury.
Malta’s precious sister island of Gozo is the perfect place to unwind, relax and recharge. If you’re looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, Gozo is the place for you.
Accommodation on Gozo is as unique as the island itself. There’s a fantastic choice of places to stay from five-star hotels and spas to restored traditional farmhouses with tonnes of character and glorious views of the Mediterranean Sea.
Gozo also offers a wide selection of good quality bed and breakfast accommodation, as well as three, four, and five star hotels, many of which have excellent restaurants attached, catering for families, couples and single travellers.
Alternatively, you can experience Gozo’s charm with a touch of style by staying in one of the island’s growing number of boutique hotels. If you’re looking for luxury, they’re a great place to stay for business travellers or for couples looking for top class accommodation with scenic views.
Most are located just a stone’s throw from the charming village squares of Nadur, Xewkija, Xaghra, Qala and Sannat with great restaurants, bars and shops close by. The square is the beating heart of every village in Gozo.
Family-run guest houses and B&Bs offer a budget alternative and are a perfect base to go out and explore Gozo from.
Accommodation is scattered across the island – choose where to stay, whether at a seaside resort or at the core of village life in a traditional rural house, where you can sip coffee with the villagers at the main square. Live by the real rhythm of the island where everyone has time for a chat, where early afternoon is for resting, the village shop is augmented by visits from the fresh produce van and the church festa lights up the village in glorious celebration. Meet the local characters and belong for a while. Gozitans are friendly by nature and will welcome you to their villages.
Gozo has plenty aparthotels, offering extra space and independence, with the opportunity to self cater when you want to, alongside hotel facilities. There are some good budget options too. Most aparthotels are close to the resort towns of Marsalforn, Xlendi and Xagħra – ideal for a seaside break.
Farmhouses and houses of character are a unique way for visitors to stay in Gozo. With houses ranging from renovated centuries-old village homes to traditional-style modern properties and from ultra-luxury to the simple but comfortable, this is the ideal option for families and anyone wanting their own space.
