Malta Adventure

Be ready to be enlivened with peace and the beautiful sea! Fly in to Rome, then connect from there to Malta. Once you land, a driver will be waiting to take you to Gozo Island (includes a 40 min ferry ride).

We will host some of you at the beautiful Dar il Paci (House of Peace) in the village of Xaghra, on Gozo Island in Malta. And other parts of our group will stay at nearby villa in Xaghra.

Limit is 12 persons per session, and registration is available first come, first served. Each villa includes a shared kitchen & sitting area/living rooms, and other amenities. Almost all bedrooms have private bathrooms. We can arrange a private villa for a single occupant, if needed.

Relaxed and unique locations, created by our host Julian, at Dar il Paci you will awaken to views of the Ramla beach and valley. It is an artist's residence and retreat, having a long history of interesting guests and activities. The house was recently refurbished to a very high standard with a bright, simple and clean approach. The patio and infinity pool are available for any time meditation and relaxation. The bedrooms are large and bright. All rooms face the east and enjoy glorious sunrise with cool sea air via the valley. The house generates electricity from solar panels, keeping the carbon footprint low.

Transportation on Gozo is available through various means: private driver for hire, and well serviced bus route is nearby your villa. For group activities within the curriculum, as noted, transportation is either provided or we will be using the bus routes, varied by activity. Otherwise, for free time and independent exploration, individuals are responsible for their own transportation.

Your villa is within walking distance to the sea, approximately 30 minute walk along the road which can be very pleasant in the morning especially. Or as desired to explore the countryside and find your private time near the sea.
