What Oliver loves…
- An ideal choice for a large family holiday in a new, and exciting destination. Orchidea has amenities to keep all ages happy.
- The vast lounge area is beautifully decorated, and remains light and airy thanks to the traditional Gozitan design.
Orchidea is a rustic farmhouse, renovated to a high luxury standard affording a large private pool, ensuite bedrooms, and four poster beds, whilst still maintaining bags of traditional Gozitan character.
On the outskirts of the tiny rural village of Ghasri, Orchidea sits slightly elevated with panoramic views across the unique Gozo countryside, and out to sea, past the mature palm trees that line the property perimeter. The terraces that surround the huge, curved pool are wonderful spaces to soak up the fantastic island climate and dine out around the built-in-barbecue. Please note that the roof terrace is not accessible.
Come discover the hidden wonders of the lesser travelled Maltese island of Gozo, with the grand Orchidea Villa as the perfect base, boasting a much-loved balance of privacy, comfort, and an ideal location.
We at Oliver's Travels are especially enthusiastic to share this lovely review with you:- "The rooms – the size of football pitches – had been imaginatively decorated with individually crafted rustic furnishings including four-poster beds fit for any royalty. Outside was the most beautiful pool and around it all (the best bit for me) genuine 360-degree views of the hills and the sea. It could not have been more peaceful, the only sound I could ever hear was the wind.” Read Emma’s full review with pictures: https://londonstylegirl.com/2018/03/31/malta-with-olivers-travels/

Dining out in Gozo is a real treat. Various delicacies can be found from pasta to exquisite seafood dishes. A particular local dish is rabbit stewed in wine. Complementing the meal you can choose from Gozitan homemade wine to the locally brewed beer that is highly rated throughout the world.
The island is steeped in history including prehistoric temples that rival Stonehenge and churches to compare with the finest in Europe. The Gozitan culture during the last 7000 years was influenced by its dominators including the Phoenicians, the Arabs, the Romans, the Knights of St. John and the British.
Visitors to Gozo will be impressed by many things; but above all, it is the friendliness of the people that lingers and draws them back time and time again.

Villa Orchidea is wonderful
