Gozo mourning the loss of Lino Cefai, director of Gozo Village Holidays. He is known for being one half of the duo that converted the iconic Ta’ French Restaurant into what it is today.

“The Gozo Tourism Association on behalf of the Gozitan touristic sector extends its condolences to the daughter and family of Lino Cefai, Director of Gozo Village Holidays, who sadly passed away yesterday evening,” Island of Gozo posted on socials minutes ago, sharing the news. “May he rest in eternal peace and rise in glory.”

Lino, together with his business partner Ino Attard, saw potential in old and dilapidated houses, giving them new life through renovation. 30 years later, the duo have more than 80 properties across Gozo and provide stellar holidays for those visiting the island.

Rest in peace, Mr Cefai.
