Fort Chambray is one of Malta’s most luxurious developments situated in an old historic city within a fortress on the Mediterranean island of Gozo. Blessed with splendid views of the Maltese Archipelago, Fort Chambray is unique and exclusive in every imaginable way. A survey conducted by ISLANDS has described the tranquil and inimitable island of Gozo as a wealth of happiness for a happy price, placing it as the World’s 5th best place to live!

The Fort Chambray project is a mammoth undertaking due to the sensitive and historic significance of the area which it is located in. With attention to every detail, Fort Chambray has been able to seamlessly blend a contemporary residential development with the alluring history connected to the site.

The Fort Chambray project is being developed in three phases. The first phase, a mix of seventy-four villas and maisonettes, has been completed and residents are steadily moving in. The second phase is well underway with sixty four two-bedroom single units and twenty one two-and three-bedroom duplex units under construction. Many of these units have privately owned roofs, unimpeded sea views and generous terrace spaces. Phase 3 is the last planned development to complete the Fort Chambray complex and will include two hundred residential apartments, a one hundred bed boutique spa hotel as well as the meticulous conversion of the Knights Barracks and Polverista into commercial outlets.

The ultimate concept surrounding Fort Chambray is that it will grow to become a self-contained village with all the modern facilities that today’s luxury lifestyle requires. The residential areas promise to be quiet havens while the communal and commercial sections of the complex will be bustling and full of life.

A lot of restoration and planning has gone into Fort Chambray. Designing in such a heavily historical and committed context required a sensible and intelligent approach that does not copy or reproduce, but that reinterprets existing motifs to create a new and complementing design. Typical closed timber balconies have become contemporary apertures with fixed and openable louvers; traditional stone mouldings have become simple and elegant recesses. In line with the demand of today’s clientele, a strong and consistent environmental and energy-efficient approach has also been adopted throughout the entire development.
