Original vaulted ceilings and a lush green garden at the foot of the big ancient olive tree the house was named after – that is what you can expect in this vacation home of character whose oldest part dates back almost 300 years. While ensuring that you will find all mod cons for your holidays, the renovation has taken care to preserve the special character and charm of the property.
Lying almost hidden behind the olive tree, palms and hibiscus, the house offers on the ground floor a cosy living room with seating area and television, a full equipped kitchen with a spacious dining area, a double bedroom and a large bathroom. Via the traditional eternal staircase next to the main door, you enter the top floor with two more double bedrooms with a balcony and roof terrace, and a shower room. The house offers sleeping for 6 adults, as well as a cot and a fold-away bed. It is in a central location in a quiet side street 5 minutes on foot from the main village square.
Xaghra is a typical Gozitan village. From the main village square with its Baroque church, statues, oleander trees and several excellent restaurants and bars, it is only a few minutes on foot to the Neolithic Gigantija temples, two stalagmite caves and an ancient windmill, as well as to all shops for your daily needs. To beach lovers, Gozo offers a spectacular and varied coastline with rock formations, steep cliffs and sandy beaches, for culture seekers it teems with monuments from all epochs of Malta’s eventful history, and the pleasant Mediterranean climate allows bathing even in November. Most of Gozo is characterised by compact villages set among the traditional terraced fields and offers rural peace and serenity. Another of Gozo’s strong points are the Gozitans: friendly and open-minded, deeply rooted in their communities and at the same time open to the world. Communication is no problem, as English is Malta’s second official and everyday language.
