About Joseph Refalo
I live in Gozo with my wife and 3 children.We both work in Gozo. My hobbies are cycling, football and watching F1 grand Prix. I have been in this accommodation business since 2003. Gozo is a jewel of an island in the middle of the Mediterranean with picturesque country side and beaches, good food and friendly people all within short distances.
Joseph Refalo purchased this Bungalow in 2009
Why Joseph Refalo chose Fontana
This is a unique location in Gozo since it is situated on a ridge edge overlooking Lunzjata Valley, Gozo's only evergreen valley. Area is a very quiet one just few minutes walk from Victoria. Furthermore earlier in 2001 I had bought the property next door which I started renting out and could not resist the opportunity to enlarge my business by buying this adjacent property.
What makes this Bungalow unique
This property boasts a big garden, pool and deck area which are sunny all day long since they are not shaded by other properties as they are located at the edge of a ridge. Property overlooks Gozo's only evergreen valley- Lunzjata valley. What a romantic evening drinking a glass of wine by the pool and watching the sunset!! or having a BBQ in such a picturesque place! At the same time this property is located at walking distance from the capital city, Victoria where the major shopping complexes, bars and restaurants are located. Wood burning fireplace, children's DVDs and toys also available.
Pool / Spa
Toys for children available on request.

Great place to stay. We stayed here with our two children and highly recommend it. Amazing pool and great location. We will be back!
Ideal location to explore a wonderful island
The property was perfect for me and my 2 adult children but would be just as well suited to a young family or group of adult friends. It is within easy walking distance of the centre of Victoria, which has a number of reasonably priced good restaurants, bars etc. Joseph, the owner, arranged airport transfers at a very reasonable price, along with a small but adequate car for 18 euros per day. Everywhere in Gozo is no more than a 15 - minute drive away maximum, and it is well worth taking the car to explore everything the island has to offer. The accommodation has 2 double bedrooms and a triple with single beds, down a spiral staircase, there is a games room with a pool table and another bedroom if required. The terrace and pool area have stunning views along the valley and is sunny for the vast majority of the day. Overall, excellent value for money, and a very attentive, knowledgable host, who is keen to help and recommend places to visit.
It was really a pleasure hosting you and your family and i hope we meet again in the near future
Sparkling clean. The location was perfect. Quiet. Great host!
Gozo was quite an amazing place starting with the place we called home for a month. We had the most wonderful time Joseph’s home, it was sparkling clean and was stocked with all the essentials. The location was perfect, within walking distance to many things, yet it was quiet and had the most amazing views that over looked the valley.. beautiful sunset views from the patio. Joseph was a great host, very attentive and informative!! Definitely recommend this home!
Thanks Gregg for your review. I am really satisfied that you enjoyed your stay and hope to host you again in the future. It was really a nice experience meeting your wonderful family.
Lovely pool and garden with fabulous views.
Huge villa, lots of space, quirky staircase to pool room. Three good sized bath/shower rooms. Really friendly owner, Joseph. He organised a car for us at a great price and was full of great ideas about where to eat and visit. Property was very quietly situated and you could see the sea in the distance. Lovely sunsets over the valley we overlooked. A walk to the nearest town was 10 mins. The town had everything: supermarket, restaurants, tourist shops, bakers and cafe culture. Wonderful.
I am really happy that you enjoyed your stay. It was my pleasure to host you and i hope to host you again in the near future.
The place is just beautiful - it was such a wonderful holiday, made so by the gorgeous villa, surroundings and people. Joe was a great assistance and helped with whatever we needed! Would highly recommend this place - was a lucky find!
Home from home with sunshine ☀️
The apartment is in a great location, within walking distance of Victoria, yet in a really peaceful location, with a lovely little bakery only 5 mins walk away. The house is spacious and nicely furnished with comfy sofas and lots of places to relax. Kitchen is nicely equipped with a dishwasher and a coffee machine. The outside area is well thought out, and the pool is nice and clean. In fact the whole place is fresh and clean and we loved it. Joseph is an attentive host without being overbearing, and any questions or queries we had he was available to contact and answer ASAP. We are a family of 5 with two teenagers and one 9 year old, and we all loved it. There is a tv too but we didn't use it. When we next go to Gozo we definitely use this place again, and would not hesitate to recommend to my friends. Gozo is a lovely little Island, lots of varied food, and friendly easy going people.
