1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

For me, the accommodation was the most memorable part because it was so relaxing to enjoy the layout of the house with its direct access to the lovely pool outside. We also organised a Kayaking trip which was fantastic and rented bikes to explore the area and it was lovely to return to the farmhouse after these activities to relax. The temperatures were very high and the farmhouse had a mix of air conditioning, overhead and standing fans to keep everyone comfortable.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

You definitely need access to a car to get the best out of a holiday in Gozo. You do have neighbours going about their lives so you may be woken up with some light traffic in the morning but it just gave us all the more time to enjoy the farmhouse.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We generally shopped for food locally so hopefully this benefited local people directly. Again, the farmhouse with its solar power also supported environmental living. Also there was weekly uptake of recycling near the farmhouse and a variety of recycling points around the Island.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

It was a fabulous holiday which was made by the accommodation. The owners were approachable and helpful and made us feel really at home. If you are thinking of Gozo as a holiday destination I would definitely recommend the accommodation and the area itself was quiet. For those considering the cooking, the kitchen has everything you need and the rooftop BBQ, which we saved for our last night, was great.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Lots! Sunset at the citadel in Victoria; snorkelling at Comino; sunset on the roof terrace of the gorgeous farmhouse.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Do hire a car as Gozo has so many lovely places to visit (though the bus service is very good). Don't plan to be out every night as the farmhouse has amazing views from the roof terrace, and you'll want to see at least one sunset from there.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We were self catering so bought all our food from local supermarkets, with as much locally sourced veg as possible. We also drank wine from Gozo and Malta, where possible (some good, some not-so-good). Gozo has good recycling facilities, which we made use of.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Really fabulous. The accommodation is luxurious and spacious, with everything anyone on a self-catering holiday could ask for (and more). The owners were great - they were there to greet us, and on hand in case of queries or problems. The island is small but filled with loads to do and see, and the villages and churches are as stunning as the clear-blue sea. We were there in June, which seemed a perfect time as the temperature was still below 30 degrees and it wasn't too crowded.
