. . . a land full of history and with a very diverse culture
Gozo, called Għawdex in Maltese, is the second largest of the Maltese Islands situated in the centre of the Mediterranean - 93 km south of Italy and 290 km north of North Africa. Gozo lies about 5 km to the North West of Malta and is a twenty-five minute ferry ride away. It enjoys warm summers and mild winters and this makes it the ideal holiday destination at any time of the year.
With a population of just over 30,000 Gozo has about one-twelfth of the overall population of the country of Malta. When compared to the overall area of the Maltese Islands, Gozo covers approximately one-third of that area which means that the island of Gozo is not overpopulated, and is greener, quieter and more peaceful . . . a tranquil have to rest and relax.
The official language is Maltese spoken in a distinct dialect, that amazingly differs from one village to another, but English is spoken as the second official language.
The main Island's sources of income are from tourism, agriculture and fishing together with a number of small and medium-sized enterprises. Malta is now served by an increasing number of low-cost operators making it cheaper and more accessible than ever before, allowing people to organise cost-effective short-trips and visits throughout the year.
If you have a passion for food, culture and good living then a cooking holiday in Gozo is for you. Staying in traditional accommodation or modern villas you are assured of luxurious accommodation. Make your stay a memorable one and your meal even more beautiful with flowers delivered.
