About the Owner

Welcome to Gozo Villas

Over 15 years ago, Chris & Doreen Lye from Surrey UK, fell in love with this little unspoilt island situated off the NW coast of Malta.

Having purchased and renovated their own farmhouse Santa Maria in Munxar, they are now pleased to bring you a small selection of British owned farmhouses and villas, ideal for that relaxing holiday.

We will also be happy to assist you in buying your own property on the island, whether it be for investment or retirement. Contact us today

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi - An excellent property, very well appointed and a contemporary design. Thoughtful and generous welcome pack that catered for a large party. John & Elizabeth R - Halifax W Yorks.

Hi Doreen & Chris, The house lived up to our every expectation and was accurately represented on the website. I would highly recommend this luxury house to a large group. It is extremely spacious and well appointed and I cannot think of anything that it lacked. It is set in a beautiful little town and is very central. Our group loved everything about it and the welcome pack was very generous. Thanks for a wonderful holiday. We loved Gozo and were glad we chose it rather than Malta which we found too busy. Not sure how you can market the difference. I must admit I'd not heard of Gozo before starting to investigate for this holiday - while everyone knows of Malta. Marilyn J - South Africa

Very spacious villa

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay here the villa photos don't do it justice the rooms are large and the bathrooms are great, the kitchen is very well equipped we were a family of 12 and it was no problem to store and prepare/cook food for all. The location is perfect for local aminities with a very good butcher, baker and great wee supermarket all within a short walk.

Gozo itself is a beatiiful island and has a fab climate we were there in October and the weather was a constant 25. I will definitely return,

From the Owner

Originally a house of character and following conversion, this modern style villa now offers really large rooms with a south facing sun deck and large pool with wide steps ideal for young children learning to swim. The village of Xewkija has a few local stores so everyday needs are catered for within a 10 mins level walk

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Gozo is the perfect place for walking and cycling holidays out of main season. The clear seas are excellent for swimming, snorkeling or scuba diving with many PADI qualified dive schools located on the island. Gozo has many historical sites including temples that pre-date the Egyptian Pyramids.


The best beach is at Ramla, about a 15 minutes drive away. Other beaches, both sandy and shingle, plus hide away coves are also within a 10-15 minutes drive.


Travel to Malta airport, then cross to Gozo by ferry (25 mins). This property is approx 35km from Malta airport.


The island of Gozo is made up of 17 individual villages contained in an area 11 x 7kms in total. Car hire is recommended.

Further Details:

Maltese cuisine is Italian based, of high quality and reasonably priced. Maltese wines and beers are also of high quality and excellent value. The island of Gozo is predominantly a farming community and during the summer months, when the weather is hot, farm workers leave for the fields just after dawn, to avoid the heat of the day. This also means that you may well be woken by farmyard animals, such as chickens, sheep, cows and dogs as the village comes to life.

From the Owner

The small island of Gozo is not considered to be a main stream tourist destination and therefore offers a truly wonderful relaxing holiday living amongst local Gozitans who go about their daily lives. Gozitans are a really friendly bunch always pleased to help foreigners and always interested in where you live and how you spend your time at home.
