A lovely holiday home.

  • 3 of 5

A beautiful property just as you see in the photographs.

Everything of a high quality and standard. The house is actually a credit to the owners. The house was immaculately clean on arrival. Probably one of the best I have stayed in over many years of holiday home rentals.

We experienced noise issues at this property . The owner was happy to refund us so we moved for the remainder of our holiday to a quieter locality.

Also be aware the house has a spiral staircase which won't be suitable for young children or mobility issues.

Lovely Gozo house. The perfect getaway.

  • 4 of 5

The house was tastefully restored and quirky. Comfortable and cozy. Good location, within easy walking distance of Xaghra Square. The property owner was helpful and efficient and the lady who looks after the house in Gozo was on hand if we needed anything. There was a welcome pack, including wine, waiting for us when we arrived. Over all, a wonderful and restful holiday.

A beautiful apartment in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has been restored to a very high standard, and the layout is unusual but attractive. The living room with kitchen is cool with thick walls keeping the heat of the day outside. The staircase is quite steeply spiralled and so might be a factor for some people. The upstairs is an outdoor corridor with rooms leading off, and they are also very stylish. All rooms come with air con, which we did not need to use. Everything has a modern feel, but set in an old building that has real character.

The location is excellent with easy walks to a beautiful beach (Ramla) and the village square has a selection of restaurants. A car helps with access to the island, but is not essential as the bus service is frequent.

Overall, a very calm and relaxing setting for a great holiday.

Our third stay in this gorgeous house.

  • 4 of 5

Our third stay in this gorgeous house. Thoroughly enjoyed it, as always. Close to the beach & a local shop. (Its only down side for us has always been the tree that blocks the view from the terrace down to Ramla!) New owners very obliging & very quick to provide the assistance we needed with a couple of technical hitches. Would definitely stay again.

Perfect property, clean, comfortable, everything you could need and great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in Xaghra and had a very comfortable stay at Ta Carmela. The house has everything we needed, the kitchen is well equipped with plenty of pots, pans etc, Nespresso coffee machine and the little welcome gift of some bits of food and a bottle of wine were a lovely touch! The downstairs is cool and a welcome break if it's hot outside with a comfortable living room and dining table. The upstairs is equally as well laid out and the standard of finish is very high. Simply decorated, very clean and very welcoming! The outside terrace area is lovely in the evening or for a spot of lunch.

The property is also very well placed in Xaghra itself (great place to base yourself for a few days on Gozo) and we used the buses or walked, very easy to get around. Xaghra has a good selection of shops and restuarants, and is close to Ramla and (our favourite) San Blas bay.

Carmen (who met at us at the house at the start and end of our stay) was lovely and made us feel very welcome. The property is obviously well loved and cared for and we'd love to come back again. Would recommend!

sehr schönes Appartement mit toller Ausstattung

  • 4 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung ist in einem alten, sehr gut renovierten Gebäude im Dorf. Die Ausstattung ist hervorragend. Die Zimmer sind äusserst geschmackvoll ausgestattet. Die Terrasse bietet einen wunderschönen Blick auf Ramla Beach. Einziger Nachteil: an den Werktagen ist es manchmal etwas laut.
