“We have just returned from a month on the Island of Gozo, Malta. My wife and I had never been to that part of the world and the exchange couldn\'t have gone any better. David and Janette\'s farm house in the beautiful village of Qala was outstanding with three levels of living area, 3 and 1/2 bathrooms, three plus terraces, and a swimming pool. We never had to rent a car as the bus system in Gozo and Malta are excellent. Restaurants, butcher shops, grocery stores, pubs, and the village square were all a few minutes walk from our exchange home. The people of Gozo are extremely friendly and everyone speaks English. I would recommend this home to anyone wanting to experience mediterranean living.”

Where is it?
The house is in the village of Qala on Gozo. It is opposite a children's play area and is very safe and secure. The local square has four restaurants catering for all the family, Gozo is a family friendly island. There is also our local bar, Zeppis which is friendly and full of locals who love to chat. Everyone speaks English so there are no language barriers.
Scuba diving is excellent here and Dive Blue Waters is first class business to deal with. My husband dives with them and they taught all our children to dive. Snorkeling is also popular as the water is so clear. Artists often visit the island to paint and many walkers come here. The churches attract tourism as they are enormous and very special. There is a mixture of a traditional way of life and very modern technology and transport which provide for a comfortable pleasant stay.
The main town on Gozo is Victoria which has lots of shops, bars, a market and the Citadella which is an historical building where locals ran for safety in the past. Well worth a visit. There are several other places of historical interest and of course Malta is only twenty minutes away. It is also quite easy to go over to Sicily for a weekend.
The best way to get a flavour of the island is to 'google' Malta and Gozo and look at several interpretations of the area. It is difficult to really capture the island as it is a place you feel as much as see. A hidden gem in the Mediterranean.
