Location

This retreat will take place in the middle of the Mediterranean sea on the island of Gozo in the village of Xaghra. Gozo, which means 'joy', is a little spit of land sitting in the Mediterranean Sea with unique rocky coastal landscape, waters so crystal-clear and the sky so bright blue that you’ll have to rub your eyes to believe what you are seeing. Gozo is the second largest island of the Maltese Archipelago and is an ideal destination for those who treasure a slow, relaxed rhythm of life and cherish unspoilt countryside and being close to the sea. Baroque churches and old stone farmhouses dot the countryside. The beauty of surrounding nature all around create an ambience of complete peace.
