Malta • THE ISLAND OF GOZO • XLENDI Natural Voice singing holiday
Slide show with 14 images
In harmony with the ancient goddess Based on the small island of Gozo, famed for its goddess culture and right beside the sea in the village of Xlendi, our acapella singing holiday is a mix of songs, easy coastal walks, swimming, visits and wine and olive oil tasting in the company of like-minded spirits.
A typical itinerary on this Acapella singing holiday in Gozo
A short hop from Malta airport to the Gozo ferry. Take a dip in the sea before dinner.
Morning songs and gentle walks
Most mornings, to avoid the heat, we will take an easy (2-4 mile) coastal walk, dropping into pretty churches on the way to enjoy the cool serenity and test out the acoustics.
Your singing tutor knows the island well and has the flexibility to choose the best spots for singing ~ a tiny, hilltop chapel, in the shade of the palm trees, at a café in a secluded bay, amid the olive groves or on the terrace of a lovely restaurant before lunch! We will visit an olive farm and vineyard for tastings where, by an open fire, we learn to make traditional Maltese bread, ftira.
Those who do not wish to walk will be transported to singing locations in our air conditioned mini bus.
The afternoons offer a chance to relax, take a dip in the sea, lie in the sun or go snorkelling! Enjoy the tranquillity of the hotel with a few hours of rest before meeting for a gin and tonic on the hotel rooftop for more singing! Enjoy a delicious supper of fresh, local produce and drift off to sleep with songs in your head.
We have purposefully included a free day, to wander off on your own, take an island tour, a boat trip to Comino, or cross the water to baroque Valletta with its magnificent harbour.
After early breakfast, we take the ferry back to Malta to catch our flights.
Note: This is a typical week on our singing holiday in Gozo, Malta. Weather conditions will influence the final itinerary.
