The Jewel of the Med: Why Buy Property in Gozo?
If it’s good enough for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, we reckon it should be good enough for everyone else! In truth, describing Malta’s sister island as simply ‘good’ is downplaying its qualities – vastly. While Gozo is more laidback with a much quieter atmosphere, it boasts beautiful landscapes and beaches, making it an ideal retreat for those looking to settle down away from the hustle and bustle of Maltese life. Our team at Frank Salt Real Estate shares a few reasons why more and more people are looking to invest in property in Gozo.
Kickin’ It Old School
A typical Gozitan village is like stepping into a time warp – in a good way. The old-fashioned, sleepy Mediterranean lifestyle has been preserved by the locals, who go about their daily errands as church bells chime distantly in the background. Fresh fruit and bread are in abundance, with the latter available straight out of the baker’s oven, fresh and hot (when we said old school, we really weren’t kidding)! Pop in at the village cafe during your evening stroll, and you’re likely to encounter a group of old men arguing fiercely about football and politics…
You Won’t Need To Break The Bank
Millennials, take note! Property in Gozo is, on the whole, relatively much lower in cost than real estate in Malta, and you don’t even have to sacrifice aesthetics or comfort for affordability. Despite the island’s small size, the variety of property is huge, from three bedroom apartments with a pool to traditional Gozitan farmhouses. The chances of finding something within your budget are high, especially if you talk to an experienced estate agent who knows the island well.
It’s Got More History Than Your Ex’s Tinder Account
Gozo is an archaeological hotspot; it’s home to the Ggantija Temples, which are even older than the Egyptian Pyramids and have been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Ancient sites are found spread all over the island, including the Qala Standing Stone and the four sets of mysterious cart-ruts in places like Xewkija and Borg l-Imramma.
A Mediterranean Paradise
From crystal clear bays to deep, green valleys, the lush Gozitan countryside is the pride of the locals as well as the Maltese. The picturesque and idyllic landscapes makes one feel as though they were living in a postcard, rendering any Instagram filters you happen to have on your phone entirely useless. It’s little wonder that the island has become such a prime filming location for series like Game of Thrones, and even home to celebrities such as the Scottish comedian, Billy Connolly.
