This Holiday House is perfect to truly experience the wonders of Gozo. It is on a quite road and all your neighbours will be locals, most of them farmers and fishermen!

Just what the family needed!

  • 5 of 5

Right from the planning phase to arrival, Michael and family were wonderful. We were very apprehensive as this was our first visit to Gozo and to such a small island and they were always available to answer our questions.

The house itself is ideally located between the harbour and the centre and there are bus routes on either side of the house. The local supermarkets can deliver if you spend more than an amount and the neighbours made us feel very welcome.

The house was furnished to a very high standard and the pool was very clean - in fact my son spent most of his time there! There was a DVD player and TV for winding down in the evenings, restaurants in the piazza and 'takeway kiosks' on the main road.

If you're looking a family break in a beutiful environment, this is a home away from home and with wonderful hosts.

For those looking for a HALAL getaway, this would be rated 100%!

Lovely house, good location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Gozo. The house was perfect. Plenty of space for the 9 of us, with everything you could need. It was very well looked after and comfortable. A bus stop nearby meant it was easy access to Victoria and to the rest of the island. A really enjoyable holiday.

House just as described and pictures are accurate.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful old farmhouse. Situated in a lovely village with lovely friendly people. The owners were lovely people and we only a phone call away. The house has everything that you can wish for, large, cool, lovely pool and the inside of the house is amazing. A lot of character, can't wait to go back, Gozo is a beautiful island.

Fabulous family and friends holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our party was family and friends, adults and children. We stayed at Il Pellikan for 9 days and were very comfortable.

First impressions were that the house was very clean, bright and homely. Lovely big bedrooms with plenty of storage and space to make us feel at home.

The outside area was very pretty and the pool was well maintained, the owner came to check it during our stay. Due to the time of year, the sun disappeared from the pool around 3.30pm but for those wanting to catch more rays, the large terrace off the top bedroom is great and equipped with loungers.

Any small issues we came across were quickly dealt with after a quick call to the owners. They were very friendly and helpful at all times.

The village is small and friendly, great if you like to be among local people and experience the lifestyle. It is a nice short walk down to the harbour or the village square where there is a choice of food and bars. There is also a supermarket within walking distance.

The beaches are a little further but defiantly worth it a trip for the clear blue waters, and the buses are a good way to get around if you don't have a car.

All in all, we would recommend and may just go back!!

Gozo is a tiny island. All the attractions and sights are not more than a 20 minute drive away. Gozo is an island with beautiful scenery and a warm climate. It's also a tourist destination, so anything you might need during your visit, would be available and not far away.

Getting to the house is easy. We normally suggest to our visitors to book an airport mini-van transfer that will take you from the airport in Malta, to the house in Gozo. We can help you with this. If you want to rent a car while in Gozo you can also book it with the same company. Renting a car in Gozo is normally cheaper then renting it from the airport.

Gozo has beautiful sandy beaches such as Ramla Bay, scuba diving sites at Dwejra Bay, horse riding at Marsalforn, clubbing at Xlendi, boat-trips to Comino and the Blue Lagoon and any other outdoor activity you would expect from an island in the Mediterranean. Popular activities in Gozo also include, sightseeing, visiting historic buildings, sun-bathing, stargazing and watching the world go by!

While you're here, do try some of Gozo's fine restaurants. Many are found by the water's edge, serving great Maltese wine and beers. A Perfect setting for al fresco dining experience.

The closest village is 3 min drive away while Victoria city is about 5 mins away.

For information about the village this house is in, you can visit the Ghajnsielem Local Council's website.

For the thrill-seekers and the adventurous, visit the 'Gozo Adventures' website.
