Beautiful Apartment with pool, balcony & free WIFI in typical Gozitan village

Overview
Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Gharb, Island of Gozo
I don't know which came first - falling in love with Gozo or my Maltese husband!

After spending ten years working around the world and living out of a suitcase, I admit to being less than excited about being sent to Malta. With visions of crumbling buildings, endless churches and a slow pace of life, I was unprepared for the vibrancy and beauty of these islands. Infact, I actually loved them so much that I ended up moving there and marrying one of the locals.

Now, several years later, we are lucky enough to own two beautiful apartments, one in the idyllic seafront village of Xlendi and the other in the tranquil country village of Gharb, both of which we have furnished with considerable thought and effort to reflect the peace and character of these islands.

We have succeeded by creating a haven of peace and relaxation; a place to...

About the neighbourhood
GHARB VILLAGE
Our apartment is located on the edge of this peaceful inland village but within a short walk of local restaurants, grocery shops and bars. We are a 10 minute walk to the shrine of Ta'Pinu, a church that is so revered that to this day, all weddings in Gozo culminate with the bride leaving her bouquet on the altar of the church as it is considered to bring long life and prosperity to the couple. Gharb is also home to a folklore museum and a glass blowing shop selling plenty of samples of the local art, the beauty of which will rival those found in Venice at half the price!

Gharb is a place of intense natural beauty, especially in the area around the ancient chapel of the bishop-martyr San Dimitri. The legend says that an old woman beseeched the saint to save her only...
