It’s once again that time of year. Your thoughts begin to move to escape the worst of the impending winter as the days get shorter, the sun has sunk into hiding, and the air grows chilly.
We have a suggestion for you if you don’t enjoy skiing or long flights to the tropics. Why not try out our lovely island of Gozo?
On Gozo, the winters are consistently warm, averaging between 12 and 15 degrees Celsius from November to the end of February. Additionally, it is typically much dryer, with plenty of sunshine and blue skies, making it ideal for outdoor activities like cycling and hiking.
Without the heat of the summer and the throng, you may discover Gozo’s breathtaking shoreline and incredible cultural history. Even in the winter, there are a tonne of things to do on Gozo, such as our Carnival week in February. We may also assist you in finding a peaceful massage or yoga session if you’re seeking for a more tranquil vacation.
Last but not least, keep in mind that many of our Gozo Self Catering Holiday Homes offer all you need for a cosy winter getaway on Gozo, including heated pools and jacuzzis, underfloor heating, and genuine fires.
ACTIVELY TRAVELING THROUGH GOZO’S COUNTRYSIDE
On Gozo, winter is a fantastic time to venture outside. Walking is one of the best ways to discover our beautiful island home. There is so much to see, from The Citadel to our magnificent churches.
There are many secure routes to discover. Additionally, you can attempt some of the 50 km Gozo Coastal Walk, which includes cross-country stretches as well as paths through towns and along minor rural roads.
The various coastal and rural paths in Gozo will delight mountain bike aficionados as well. You can always find a beach or a cafe in Gozo thanks to its network of safe roads and trails.
ATTEND THE CARNIVAL
The return of the Carnival in February will make Gozo once more the place to be for some real fun and mayhem after the Covid pandemic limitations were relaxed. We are happy to announce that Carnival Week will take place from Friday, February 17, to Tuesday, February 21, 2023.
The streets of our nation’s capital Victoria will serve as the stage for a five-day festival including vibrant floats, incredible costumes, dancing, marching bands, and much more.
And for something completely different, we advise going to the village of Nadur to take part in the nightly Spontaneous Carnival. People can be seen here donning bizarre costumes and ugly masks because this festival is all about disguise.
WINTER READY RENTALS ON GOZO
It makes such a difference to be able to unwind in a warm, welcoming home away from home after spending the day visiting Gozo’s shoreline or cultural treasures.
On Gozo, many of our self-catering rental homes are what we refer to as “winter ready.” These fantastic rental homes have open fireplaces and underfloor heating, which may really make a difference during the chilly winter months. Additionally, several of our distinctive private villa and farmhouse homes have jacuzzis and heated indoor pools.
Additionally, a few of these properties are grouped together close to one another, allowing us to provide larger families and groups of friends with the ideal winter getaway on Gozo.
