Lovely article by Condé Nast on how to spend 3 days in Malta and Gozo, although of course we would recommend staying a tad longer on Gozo!

Where to stay
One of the best accommodation options in Gozo are the stone farmhouses which have been converted into holiday homes. We found the perfect base for our family at Razzett Pepprina. We loved the large, high ceilinged rooms, the three big bedrooms, farmhouse-style kitchen and spacious sitting room with doors opening onto a terrace with a swimming pool. Even the location is fabulous – in gorgeous Xaghra, Gozo’s nicest village.
