Calypso Retreat makes a luxurious base for those wishing to explore the wonderful island of Gozo. It holds a fantastic location just a short distance from the vibrant village of Xaghra, next to the iconic view of ‘Calypso Cave’ and very close to Ramla Bay, famously known for its strikingly red sand. Calypso Retreat is a perfect vacation home for eight guests to relax and unwind across three bedrooms each offering lovely ensuite bathrooms. Full of Gozitan charm, the exterior of this villa offers the privacy of a large back terrace with a gorgeous pool, welcoming hot tub, sunbathing spots and a secluded olive-tree garden.

Upon entering Calypso Retreat, three well-appointed bedrooms await you. Two of the bedrooms have lovely king-sized beds paired with wonderful en-suite bathrooms. The other bedroom makes the perfect bedroom for children to share with two single beds and an ensuite bathroom.

With an open plan living area including kitchen, living room and dining room, Calyspo Retreat offers the perfect place for entertaining friends and family. The chefs among you will love using the fully-equipped kitchen with electric oven, stove, microwave, fridge, freezer, kettle, crockery and dishwasher. Others may enjoy stretching out across the L-shaped sofa infront of the TV.

Step outside to find a beautiful pool surrounded by beautiful stone walls making your stay all the more peaceful. Enjoy lunches using the charcoal grill, dinning around the large table in the cool shade under the canopy looking onto a beautiful olive garden. As the sun starts to set, make your way into the hot tub and bubble away into the night with the starry lit sky twinkling on the water.

What you should know…

  • From Malta International Airport there is a short ferry crossing to reach the pretty island of Gozo
  • To make sure you see all the sights, a car is recommended
  • The property features stone walls, terraces, and outdoor spaces that may have uneven surfaces. Take heed when moving around these areas, especially at night, to avoid trips, slips, or falls.
  • Worth packing beach shoes as Ramla beach has a few stones, amongst the red sand!

Calypso Retreat is situated on the quaint island of Gozo, nestled in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea. The absence of an international airport on Gozo lends an air of remoteness and tranquillity to the island's character. Travelers are advised to fly to Malta and then conveniently catch a short ferry ride to reach Gozo.

Located on the outskirts of the charming village of Xaghra and 3.6 km east of Gozo's capital, Victoria, Calypso Retreat offers a prime position. It rests adjacent to the iconic "Calypso Cave" viewpoint and is a stone's throw from the renowned Ramla Bay, known for its distinct red sand. Additionally, the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ggantija, is close by, with all essential amenities conveniently within walking distance.

Despite Gozo's compact size—just seven kilometers in length and slightly over thirteen kilometers wide—there is a wealth of activities to suit all preferences. From historical sites, religious structures, and natural trails to city exploration, shopping, and savoring local cuisine, Gozo offers abundant options. To fully uncover the island's treasures, a car is recommended.

Indulge in the unhurried pace of life and bask in the Gozitan sunlight. Pristine waters grace each beach and cove, inviting you to relish their serenity through swimming, snorkeling, or even diving. Gozo is renowned as a favored diving destination, catering to beginners and seasoned divers alike. Traverse underwater caves and explore sunken WWII aircraft alongside vibrant schools of fish. Families with young children will delight in the famous Ramla Bay, boasting expansive stretches of striking red sands, guarded by lifeguards. The realm of water sports is boundless, encompassing paddleboarding, kayaking, tubing, wakeboarding, and water skiing.

Gozo boasts captivating hikes, revealing the peaceful countryside punctuated by fascinating geological formations. Embark on a hike from Xaghra to Ramla Bay or challenge yourself with a trek to the Sanap Cliffs, each rewarding with breathtaking vistas. Post-hike, relish delectable, freshly prepared Gozitan cuisine, reflecting the locals' renowned hospitality that beckons visitors to return time and again.

From natural marvels to ancient remnants and culinary delights, Gozo caters to every guest, making it an ideal holiday destination.

Gozo makes the ideal setting for a holiday in which parents and children can share the joys of discovery. Just a short distance away, Ramla Bay is a popular beach for families.

Options for watersports here are never ending… paddleboarding, kayaking, tubing, wakeboarding or water-skiing! How about taking a trip to Xlendi Beach? Known for its clear, shallow waters, this is another perfect option for young children. Or, for the more adventurous, snorkelling or diving are popular activities at Xlendi Beach!

Experience the thrill of an action-packed holiday and go mountain biking, kayaking, clifftop hiking and even horse riding! Alternatively, embrace the history, culture and stories that entertain young and adults alike. Visit the megalithic temples at Ġgantija, and the recently restored Il-Kastell fortress towering above the capital of Gozo, Victoria!

For a more laid-back adventure, take a boat ride and tour the coast. You can get to dive and swim at many idyllic spots or you can opt to sail out to Comino, the island that captures the imagination of many. If you’re interested in exploring the island we suggest that you plan a day and return to Gozo at sunset.

Calypso Retreat forms the perfect base for a family holiday! Embrace family time in this open-plan villa, set across just one floor. Step outside from the kitchen to find a beautiful pool surrounded by beautiful stone walls. Watch the children splash around in the pool whilst cooking on the barbeque. Enjoy lunches dinning around the large table in the cool shade under the canopy looking onto a beautiful olive garden. After a fun-filled day, children can relax on the L-shaped sofa infront of the TV whilst the adults bubble away into the night with the starry lit sky twinkling on the water. One bedroom has two single beds with an ensuite bathroom, making it the perfect bedroom for children to share.

    We enjoyed this spacious modern apartment. The provost pool and the deck was enjoyed throughout the day, in the evening the hot tub was the cherry on the cake.

  • A fab holiday

    Friendly and professional host, the residence was spacious with its own pool. The kitchen was well equipped. A great stay. The AC’s worked beautifully on the hottest days.
