About Jurgen Cassar

The owners of the villa have been described as very friendly and helpful genuine people.

At Il Gabbiano, guests are treated as family members and given all the attention and assistance through out the holiday. The owners go that extra mile to give its guest a pleasant experience.

Jurgen Cassar purchased this villa in 1995

Why Jurgen Cassar chose Marsaskala

This property was built for family residential use, with all amenities and commodities and medium size family needs.

It is located in Marsaskala (a.k.a. Wied il-Ghajn) has developed only in recent years from a small fishing village into the popular southern resort it is today.

The harbour is still used by a few fishermen, their colourful Luzzu sharing the moorings with pleasure craft. Life here is centred on the long harbour promenade with its many open-air cafes and restaurants. For much of its past the village was a tranquil backwater, though it has seen its share of the Islands' main historical events. Marsaskala Bay made easy landing for Barbary Corsairs and Ottoman Turks who raided the Islands from the Middle Ages to the late 17th century.

After a large Ottoman fleet landed here in 1614, the Knights set about improving the bay's defences, building the imposing Fort St. Thomas in nearby St. Thomas' Bay. Locals built their own domestic versions. The Mamo Tower on the road to Zejtun, now fully restored, is a fine example of a fortified farmhouse. It was built in a unique shape - the cross of St. Andrew. It is open to the public from Thursday to Sunday from 9am till noon.

What makes this villa unique

While staying at Il Gabbiano you can enjoy the experience of dining outside, on the terrace, with magnificent unobstructed sea and white clay cliffs view or Enjoying the summer breeze while having a BBQ with friends near the pool. Il Gabbiano Holiday Vila has been described as 'one of the best views in Malta' and 'very homely feel' by guests who spent their holiday at Il Gabbiano.
