About Joseph Refalo
I live in Gozo with my wife and 3 children.We both work in Gozo. My hobbies are cycling, football and watching F1 grand Prix. I have been in this accommodation business since 2003. Gozo is a jewel of an island in the middle of the Mediterranean with picturesque country side and beaches, good food and friendly people all within short distances.
Joseph Refalo purchased this Bungalow in 2009
Why Joseph Refalo chose Fontana
This is a unique location in Gozo since it is situated on a ridge edge overlooking Lunzjata Valley, Gozo's only evergreen valley. Area is a very quiet one just few minutes walk from Victoria. Furthermore earlier in 2001 I had bought the property next door which I started renting out and could not resist the opportunity to enlarge my business by buying this adjacent property.
What makes this Bungalow unique
This property boasts a big garden, pool and deck area which are sunny all day long since they are not shaded by other properties as they are located at the edge of a ridge. Property overlooks Gozo's only evergreen valley- Lunzjata valley. What a romantic evening drinking a glass of wine by the pool and watching the sunset!! or having a BBQ in such a picturesque place! At the same time this property is located at walking distance from the capital city, Victoria where the major shopping complexes, bars and restaurants are located. Wood burning fireplace, children's DVDs and toys also available.

Sparkling clean. The location was perfect. Quiet. Great host!
Gozo was quite an amazing place starting with the place we called home for a month. We had the most wonderful time Joseph’s home, it was sparkling clean and was stocked with all the essentials. The location was perfect, within walking distance to many things, yet it was quiet and had the most amazing views that over looked the valley.. beautiful sunset views from the patio. Joseph was a great host, very attentive and informative!! Definitely recommend this home!
Thanks Gregg for your review. I am really satisfied that you enjoyed your stay and hope to host you again in the future. It was really a nice experience meeting your wonderful family.
Lovely pool and garden with fabulous views.
Huge villa, lots of space, quirky staircase to pool room. Three good sized bath/shower rooms. Really friendly owner, Joseph. He organised a car for us at a great price and was full of great ideas about where to eat and visit. Property was very quietly situated and you could see the sea in the distance. Lovely sunsets over the valley we overlooked. A walk to the nearest town was 10 mins. The town had everything: supermarket, restaurants, tourist shops, bakers and cafe culture. Wonderful.
I am really happy that you enjoyed your stay. It was my pleasure to host you and i hope to host you again in the near future.
The place is just beautiful - it was such a wonderful holiday, made so by the gorgeous villa, surroundings and people. Joe was a great assistance and helped with whatever we needed! Would highly recommend this place - was a lucky find!
Home from home with sunshine ☀️
The apartment is in a great location, within walking distance of Victoria, yet in a really peaceful location, with a lovely little bakery only 5 mins walk away. The house is spacious and nicely furnished with comfy sofas and lots of places to relax. Kitchen is nicely equipped with a dishwasher and a coffee machine. The outside area is well thought out, and the pool is nice and clean. In fact the whole place is fresh and clean and we loved it. Joseph is an attentive host without being overbearing, and any questions or queries we had he was available to contact and answer ASAP. We are a family of 5 with two teenagers and one 9 year old, and we all loved it. There is a tv too but we didn't use it. When we next go to Gozo we definitely use this place again, and would not hesitate to recommend to my friends. Gozo is a lovely little Island, lots of varied food, and friendly easy going people.
een heerlijk verblijf
een hele ruime woning, leuk en gezellig ingericht (veel kunst aan de muren; dat hebben we nog nooit ergens anders gezien en we hebben al heel veel huizen gehuurd in de loop der jaren!). Je hoeft bepaald niet op elkaars lip te zitten in dit huis; de woonkamer is echt groot. Helemaal beneden is ook nog een ruimte met een snookertafel. De keuken is niet heel luxe, maar alles wat nodig is om te koken is er. De twee badkamers zijn ook niet heel luxe, maar voldoen uitstekend. Het huis was keurig schoon. De woning ligt in een buitenwijkje van Victoria in een heel rustig straatje. Aan de achterkant van het huis is het zonneterras met zwembad. Het is daar heel fijn vertoeven en je waant je ver buiten de stad. Het centrum van Victoria is echter lopend maar tien minuten. Eigenaar is erg vriendelijk en behulpzaam zonder je voor de voeten te lopen. Dit huis heeft alles wat je nodig hebt om een vakantie te vieren, waarin je zowel wat wilt ondernemen, als rustig relaxen en van het mooie weer genieten.
Thank you for your stay at our property. It was really nice meeting you and we hope to host you again in the future.
Translation of review in engish -a wonderful stay
a spacious house, nice and cozy furnishings (lots of art on the walls, we have never seen anything else and have rented a lot of houses over the years!). You do not have to sit on each other's lip in this house; the living room is really big. At the bottom there is also a space with a snooker table. The kitchen is not very luxurious, but all that is needed to cook is there. The two bathrooms are also not very luxurious, but are excellent. The house was neat clean. The property is located in a suburb of Victoria in a very quiet street. At the back of the house is the sun terrace with swimming pool. It is very nice to live there and you are far away from the city. The center of Victoria is however walking but ten minutes. Owner is very friendly and helpful without walking for your feet. This house has everything you need to celebrate a holiday, in which you want to take a rest, relax and enjoy the weather.
