• What type of accommodation does Gozo offer ?
All houses in Gozo are built from the mellow honey-toned local globigerina limestone and are very different from the brick affairs that one finds in mainland Europe! In Gozo one finds serviced accommodation (5 star de-luxe to guesthouses) and self-catering apart-hotels to apartments which range from luxurious to outright basic. A unique form of accommodation are the authentic converted farmhouses (some are 300 year old plus!) which offer luxurious accommodation plus good private pool. Most of these also include a good view of the Gozo countryside or the sea.
• What type of cuisine can I enjoy ?
In Gozo one can find a rich and diverse culinary culture but the main traditional dishes are rabbit and braggioli which consist of minced meet, eggs and other fillings wrapped around thin slices of beef. Lampuki fish are also very popular when in season i.e. around late September to December.
