TRADITIONAL STONE HOUSE IN TRANQUIL VILLAGE CLOSE TO HAGAR QIM AND BLUE GROTTO

Qrendi Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom cosy three storey house, sleeps 6, 2k from sea and Megalithic temples

Il Musbieh is in the tranquil village of Qrendi, one of the few remaining traditional villages in the south of Malta. With narrow winding streets, both our house and the village offer the perfect antidote for visitors who want to get away from it all and enjoy the timeless, traditional Maltese way of life.

The house is a renovated 19thC home full of traditional stone features, cosy, contemporary furnishings and 21st C technology including a new AC system. On the ground floor is an open plan reception/study area, sitting area, fully equipped Shaker-style kitchen, utility area and a large family bathroom. On the first floor are the master bedroom with 6ft bed and small ensuite; an external patio for breakfast in the sun; and a second double bedroom with ensuite. The third bedroom on the second floor is a barumbara (dove cote) with ensuite shower room and spiral staircase to the roof with panoramic views of Malta. There is also a terrace for sunbathing and eating al fresco.

You can also sunbathe on the roof on our sun loungers. The external spaces are not overlooked so the house is very private.

Fancy a two centre holiday?: If you would like to split your time between two completely different types of Malta holiday experience, please have a look at our seafront apartment in Birgu - 439983. For example, if you are coming to Malta for two weeks, you may like to spend a week unwinding in the peace and quiet of Qrendi followed by a second week overlooking Grand Harbour, swimming off the rocks outside the apartment and exploring the historic city of Birgu. If so, please check availability and send us an email.

Qrendi - Brad Pitt's new home town: Hollywood star Brad Pitt and his family rented a property in Qrendi, the Guarena Palace, during the filming of his zombie movie World War Z in summer 2011.

It is also one of Malta's friendliest villages where all the residents are helpful and welcoming.

I lived in Malta until I was 11 - a most wonderful, 'golden' childhood spending most of my time either in or by the sea. I have always retained a very strong emotional tie to this quirky island and we bought our first property in 2007 with a view to retiring here.

The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 2010

Il Musbieh is our second property which we fell in love with in 2010 after almost a year of scouring the island for a suitable property that would suit both our family and be appealing to holiday guests. We love its character, the warmth and friendliness of our Maltese neighbours and its location close to the sea, country walks and the ancient temples.

Qrendi is a wonderful base to feel a part of Malta

  • Submitted: Feb 9, 2014

A really comfortable house. I love the red and white kitchen with little touches such as the red and white utensils. I have bought a pair of red and white polka dot Cath Kidston mugs after using yours!
Qrendi is a wonderful base to feel a part of Malta. I talked to the neighbours and pottered around the local shops. It is quiet - no noisy tourists! Ghar Lapsi is a fantastic place to snorkel and Hagar Qim is on the doorstep too. We will go away with many happy memories of Malta.

A home from home

Thanks so much for helping us have a fantastic couple of weeks in Malta . The house was just perfect; the location is quiet and convenient for shops and the local attractions. We appreciated the air-con and the Wi-Fi. This is very much a home from home. The highlight was being part of the two day Safi festival. No problem parking, just arrive 10 minutes before the start. Spectacular fireworks and a Catherine wheel display on the Saturday - 1.00 am finish!

We had such a great time that we will definitely recommend Malta and particularly your property.

Thank you very much for your message; we had very nice holidays thanks to your amazing and lovely house, the such interesting history of Malta, and the kindness of the people we met (just the driving was a little bit frightening for us...)

Hagar Qim
Car: recommended

Qrendi has a population of 2,500 and is surrounded by fields and a beautiful coastal road for walking and cycling. Within 2k are the World Heritage Sites of Hagar Qim ('HA-jar eem') and Mnajdra, the best-preserved Megalithic limestone temples in Malta dating back to c. 3600 to 3200 BC. Qrendi retains many other links with the past including a 17thC octagonal tower in Triq-it-Torri (Tower Street) - just 100 metres from the house - built by the Knights of St John to protect the area from marauders.

Qrendi celebrates its main, week-long festa in mid August. This is a religious festival with musical performances, processions, street parties,fireworks and pyrotechnic exhibitions.

Qrendi is walking distance from the Blue Grotto, a world-famous natural grotto with a neighbouring system of caverns that mirror the brilliant phosphorescent colours of the underwater flora as well as a number of good value restaurants and cafes overlooking the sea.

The popular fishing port of Marsaxlokk and the historic Three Cities are 15 minutes away by car.
