gozo farmhouse

A typical charming Gozitan house of character with sun shutter. You'll often see these types of shutters (or blinds) in Gozo. Known as a "hasira" in Maltese, these blinds protect the front door from the scorching summer sun and thus reducing the need for regular maintenance.

Just in case you're wondering, Gozo holiday farmhouses and villas are usually cheaper than holiday villas in Malta. And you can't beat Gozo, if you're looking for secluded locations!

A Gozitan farmhouse is a square-set farm building which has been converted for holiday accommodation or permanent residency. Some of these farmhouses can be up to 400 years old and many still retain original features such as wooden beams and flagstone floors. They really make for a great rustic holiday home!

This is especially true if you're visiting Gozo during off-peak months.

Even during high season, you can still get some bargain deals.

So don't immediately disregard a Gozo villa holiday!
