We are thinking if booking a villa in Gozo for August 2015. It will be a party of two adults, four teenagers and a 12 year old.
I have just found the dates we can go will coincide with the Santa Maria festival with the bank holiday being the middle weekend. I read on a blog somewhere that the Maltese have that fortnight as their weeks off so many places are closed and the beaches in Gozo get very busy.
The blog also said that a lot of Maltese take their boats out and the sea gets full of oil and diesel and that the ferries and public transport get very busy and queues are long.
We are now thinking it may not be the best place to go as we like our holidays fairly quiet although we would enjoy the festival.
Also do places put up their prices over the festival fortnight?
