"Is any Gozo holiday accommodation more appropriately named? Dream Hamlet is (sort of) 2 Gozo holiday homes rolled into one which makes it perfect for large family get-togethers. Scale is the first thing that hits you about this place. There are 3(!) pools. One is an indoor splash pool with Jacuzzi; the other two are outdoors so if one pool is getting a bit raucous you can decamp to the other and splash around in peace. Vast vaulted ceilings that span the dining area and living space. Even the individual sandstone blocks that form every column wall and arch are massive.
The year round appeal is the other thing I love about Dream Hamlet. Visit in summer and chances are you’ll only leave the pool terrace for the occasional break from the sun. From BBQ to dining table to distant ocean views almost everything you could possibly want for a relaxing day is here.
Yet when winter adds a slight nip to the air you’ll find the log fire underfloor heating and Jacuzzi make Dream Hamlet a wonderful retreat.
Part home from home part luxury spa part year-round escape Dream Hamlet is a Gozo family villa on an epic scale", Jules
You’d expect the living space to be generously proportioned in a Gozo holiday villa built for 14 but even so, Dream Hamlet is holiday accommodation on a grand scale. The open plan living area features a well-equipped kitchen a dining area with two tables so the entire household can sit down for dinner together and a lounge.
A flat screen TV with cable DVD player wireless internet and a games console provide plenty of winter distractions – and are welcome summer escapes if the sun gets a bit much.
A glass wall separates the living area from the Jacuzzi splash pool while beyond large windows let lots of natural light into the living area.
There is an additional WC on the ground floor.
All of Dream Hamlet’s spacious 7 bedrooms are en-suite and are split between the ground and first floors. 3 rooms house double beds the remainder have twin beds but you can have these arranged as doubles if you prefer.
Each bedroom is wonderfully welcoming so you may find yourself choosing rooms based on the views from their patio doors balconies and terraces!
Terrace doors lead to an extended patio with barbeque dining tables and chairs.
Two generously-sized pools are the focal point of the terrace but we think you’ll find it hard to tear your eyes away from the magnificent countryside beyond the villa wall and the glorious sunsets.
Ghasri is one of Gozo’s smallest villages (and one of its most peaceful) set in the north-west of the island.
From the village square a road leads to the fabulous valley of Wied l-Ghasri 2.3km away from the house. The Wied l-Ghasri area is marvellous country for walking or cycling especially in winter and spring. The valley ends at the sea wedged between high cliffs where a secluded little inlet makes an ideal spot for swimming snorkelling and diving. Indeed the sea around Wied l-Ghasri is very popular among divers.
On the way don’t miss the charming old chapel dedicated to the patronage of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The two shallow bays of Xwejni and Qbajjar are both 4.1 Km away.
Next to each other they have small pebbly beaches and rocky stretches leading into clear blue water. Excellent for swimming they are enjoyed by locals and visitors alike and both are popular with divers especially beginners. You’ll find a few fishing boats based here too and a couple of bars and restaurants on the sea front.
The closest beaches are 7 km away and the closest food store is 800 metres from your Gozo holiday home.
Your nearest restaurant Ta Salvina is an easy 1 km walk whilst the capital Victoria is 3.5 km away.
Catching the 308 bus will bring you to the centre where you will find a wide range of shops cafes bars and restaurants and a wealth of history.
