Why Maria Anthony Galea chose Island of Gozo

This property is situated in the centre of Xlendi on the second floor and top because there is no building on it. it looks to the main square and there is no building opposite where one can see each other from the balcony or windows. Important the building is build on street levels no hills. The ATM and Bus Station is opposite. To go to the sandy beach restaurants and shops etc will take few minutes. Divers nearby for those interested in diving and much more. I can say you have the whole pack that you will need for a satisfied holiday and a dream that comes true.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the most brilliant time in Xlendi and the owner really looked after us and made sure that we had everything we needed. The apartment is in a fantastic location and you can easily access everywhere in the island.



The apartment is just as it looks in the pictures. It's fantastic because it's central and there is no building opposite. There is a big main square of Xlendi.



We were over for a wedding so didn't have much spare time but would recommend the Indian food down the road and there is good bars and restaurants which you can see the bay. But overall Xlendi has great food and the people are so friendly, for sure we will come back.

Holidays as they should be

  • 5 of 5

The holiday started right after our arrival. Anthony Maria had taken care of the entire transfer from the airport to the apartment and back (Everything reasonably priced). The apartment had everything we needed. On the same road, there are some restaurants and places were people celebrate on weekends. We enjoyed the food everywhere and slept like logs afterwards, since we were always exhausted from all the swimming, hiking, boat trips and much more. Xlendi was lively but not crowded and very picturesque. We were there for just 5 nights and yet it felt as if we had been on holidays for 10 nights. We will definitely come back and can only recommend Anthony Maria's apartment.

It was special in that Maria tried to give us a real taste of a Gozo home - lots of homely touches.

  • 5 of 5

Maria was there to meet us and guide us via phone to the property. There are lots of lovely pictures and photos of the area on the walls and artefacts that give a picture of a Gozitan history. Maria went out of her way in thoughtfulness by leaving sandwiches, wine, breakfast etc. Lovely area and filled with colourful spring flowers and the scent of citrus at this time of year. Warm enough for us to enjoy swimming and snorkelling in the sea - it is crystal clear and beautiful. Great time.

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

Wanted to visit Xlendi for a long time and finally it was my 60th birthday this year and I realised my dream accompanied by my daughter. Apartment is ideal with everything you need provided for and a great location too. Very clean, homely and well maintained. Maria and her husband made us feel very welcome and were so helpful. We arrived quite late Saturday evening but were met at the ferry and when we arrived Maria had left sandwiches, milk, cereal and also a welcome bottle of red wine. I would definitely recommend this property and would stay here again. Thanks Maria.

Nice place in Lovely Xlendi

  • 5 of 5

Xlendi: What a delightful little place. We went for a week mid November and we had really nice weather, went in the sea 5 days of our visit. We had one day when the weather changed day before we left, it was very stormy over night and cloudy (but dry) the next day. Xlendi is ideal for lovely coastal walks along that part of the cost and overlooking the cliffs. It's well located to get around via the hourly bus service to Victoria where you can get a bus to anywhere in the island for 1.50 Euros. There is only one small shop in Xlendi so for big shop you need to catch bus to Victoria. Alternatively, you could get a bus to nearby village of Munxar which has a good sized local shop with everything.

Xlendi is a nice relaxed little village with quite a few cafes / resaturants (but not too many) to get snacks and nice meals. As we were there in the autumn season it was quiet. I guess that in the peak season it will be very different. Up on the hill and around the other side of the bay, there are lots of recently built partments, which were deserted, but summer is gonna be busy so I suggest if you like it very quiet, visit in October and November.

The Apartment: It's a lovely, comfortable apartment, quirky and simple, but it really has everything you need for your stay. The house is open plan, a small adaquate kitchen, and two bedroom areas seperated by a wall but not entirely enclosed. It was actually nice to have two different areas to sleep in yet still talk to each other. If one of you wants to watch the TV in one area and the other wants to sleep, then it could be an issue for a light sleeper. Though to be honest, we hardly watched the TV as there wasn't a great choice of TV channels. Nice balcony

Maria picked us up from the Ferry port for free which was really useful and they took us back for Euros 10. We also had a welcome pack of some milk, wine, fruit and even a couple of sandwhiches which were really welcome after our day travel from UK.

Only other points for the owners is they need a new tin opener as I had to open tins with a pointed knife, and the water pressure is quite slow so if you need a power shower, you may have a problem. Having said that we managed ok.

TIPS: You can get a X1 bus from Malta airport to the ferry port for Euros 1.5 which takes 1h 15. Make sure you visit the Citadel in Victoria - though it was under restoration work when we where there it is going to look fantastic when finished. Visit Azure Window by bus or 3 hour walk.

Special interest holidays:

The island offer over 50 shore and boat sites with depths from 5m to 45m in Gozo, Comino and Malta and sights from natural rock formations to sunken wrecks and reefs bursting with marine life.Xlendi bay is very popular with diving enthusiasts and there are two diving schools providing equipment and guided dives for beginners and advanced divers at reasonable prices. You can also hire a pleasure cruise boat and takes you around other shores around Gozo.

Gozo is wonderful walking country with plenty of well trodden tracks through the more famous of the islands landmarks such as Calypso's Cave or the Azure Window, Ggantija Temples, Ta Kola windmill and the Citadel in Victoria where there you find lot of antique museums and the old prisons. There is also Ninu's cave and a museum of toys in Xaghra.

Coast/Beach:

Xlendi village is situated is quiet and peaceful place. The balcony is in the right place where you can see two views, one to the beach and other to the valley. To reach the sandy beach by foot you need only a minute. Not more time you will find a diving centre for beginners and advanced divers, ATM bank, Tourist Information and souvenir-shops with their handcrafted objects. At 1 o'clock a van comes trough the place to sell fruits and fresh vegetables.

Travel:

It is very convenient to make use of the ferry boat between Malta and Gozo. The ferry boat runs approximately every 30 to 45 minutes. A schedule is updated every 3 months. We can organise a taxi from the Malta international airport (Luqa) to Cirkewwa harbour and from Gozo Imgarr harbour to the apartment. Please contact us for more details and we shall be glad to help.

Distances:

The island of Gozo offers the traveller much to explore and discover that range from prehistoric temples to historical events and have made Gozo what it is today. Many people refer to Gozo as the land where time stands still and in many ways that is still true.

Further Details:

Extra Notes: Hanging on the wall behind the dining table you will find 4 interesting big pictures (black and white) of Xlendi where it takes you around 20th Century. I think this will be interesting to give you an imagination how Xlendi was 90 years ago. A Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee machine is available that makes Coffee, Capucino, Expresso, Hot chocolate, Ice tea end other different coffee tastes cold or hot. Enough tea, coffee, sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper and oil are also available. Lot of toys for children and games for adults is available, plenty of cds and a wide range of books for adults and children, so you can choose your favourite story. In the balcony an umbrella is provided in case if the sun will be too hot. Extra notes: Easy way to travel: the best and easy way to travel from Malta to Gozo is by the ferry boat that operates every 45 minutes. In it there is excellent facilities including a magazine kisok and cafeteria. For a stress free start to your holiday, we can organise private transfers from Malta airport direct to our apartment. Please contact us for a quote. There is a public bus service from the airport to Cirkewwa where you can catch the regular Gozo ferry for 4.65 Euros per person. The other option is to hire a car in Malta's airport that are cheap. Any questions please let me know, thanks.

Gozo quiet and peacful place: Gozo is a small island surrounded with the Mediterranean Sea. The population is 30,000. Most of them are fishermen and farmers. The capital city of Gozo is Victoria. Victoria Town is surrounded with small Villages.Gozo is very different from Malta.The countryside is much greener with steep fertile valleys fringing spectacular rugged cliffs that plunge down to reveal alluring bays. Many interesting places never end, like Dwejra the Azure window, Calipso Cave and Ninu's Cave, Ggantija temples that takes us many years ago, the old Windmill and museum of toys these are all in Xaghra.Lunsjata valley that is a very quite place.
