My family & I have just returned from a 10 day holiday at Girgentina which forms part of the Il Vigneto complex in Xaghra.
My Daughter travelled to Gozo in 2013 and really enjoyed her stay so convinced us to go and see for ourselves, we were not disappointed however pleasantly surprised how such a beautiful complex is a real hidden gem in a very quiet & tranquil setting.
The accommodation is worthy of 5 stars and is quite simply the typical Gozitan built rustic bare honey limestone with a mix of luxury furniture & fittings to compliment the stunning buildings, fully equipped with everything to make it a home to relax in while away.
The owners Michelle & Abraham actually live next to the complex and were always on hand to help with any teething problems and nothing was too much trouble, they were extremely friendly and also owned the local well stocked supermarket not far from the complex, you get a real sense of family pulling together as they all work for the family business including a lovely lady (Michelle's Mum) in the supermarket, she was very helpful and even delivered our large first shop in her car to the villa for us! The local buses were easy to use, the 307 takes you to Victoria (Rabat, the capital) or Ramla Bay in the other direction and takes about 10 -15 mins, the 322 goes to Marsalforn, all buses cost 1.50 Euros for a day return ticket and you can use it on any bus so you can go virtually all over the island for a little amount, be aware though as certain times in the day if the buses are full the driver will not stop, we found the early morning buses and late afternoon buses going to and from the beaches tend to be the times to avoid.
The Villa made our holiday and if we go back to Gozo we would not stay anywhere else as this was perfect in every way!
