Gharb Holidays

Gharb holidays – Mediterranean village life at its best

Gharb is one of Gozo’s prettiest villages and staying here is a slice of real Gozitan life. In the attractive central square the seventeenth century parish church is surrounded by traditional houses of warm yellow limestone with carved stone balconies. These are colourfully and unexpectedly set off by remnants of colonial days: a British red letter box and old-fashioned blue police station lantern!

Gharb has its own folklore museum, an Aladdin’s cave of objects relating to traditional crafts, and just beyond the village you will find lovely walks and several sights: the Ta’ Dbiegi craft centre with the best range of souvenirs on the island; Ta’ Pinu church, a major centre of pilgrimage; and Dwejra, where you can see spectacular rock formations as well as a tower built by the ‘Knights of Malta’.

If you are looking for peace, quiet and Gozitan character, you couldn’t do better than Gharb.
