About the property

Old renovated farmhouse with private sunny pool

An old traditional Gozitan farmhouse that I have renovated with a boutique style flair to it. Importantly, it's not just another rental but it's in fact my second home.

Its location is a 5 - 10 minutes walk away from Xaghra quaint main square where all the amenities, bars and restaurants are. The house has a private and sunny 19 x 11 foot pool and a pool area with a gas BBQ, table and chairs as well as sun loungers.

My first floor front terrace has a large dining table, 6 chairs, large umbrella and a relaxing corner with a comfy outdoor couch and 2 cushioned chairs perfect for al fresco dining and outdoor chilling in the evening.

A perfect sun trap for hardcore sun seekers is my roof terrace that has also sun loungers.

On the inside, the house has an open plan vibe making it very spacious in particular the kitchen area with a window overlooking the pool. The kitchen has a large breakfast island with stools.

The living/dining room has a comfy large L shape couch with TV and an ipod stand

A large dramatic looking staircase brings you to the 2 large upstairs bedrooms that both have an ensuite. Each room has a large wardrobe with hangers, 2 towels for both bathroom use and one for sun bathing around the pool. The main bedroom has a large king size bed with large headboard. My second and third bedroom also have a large red headboard and you also have the choice of using them as a large king size bed or separate the beds and use them as 2 single beds which is perfect for a family with kids or when sharing with friends.

Near Xaghra is the famous sandy Ramla beach where you can go by car or by bus that stops in my street on a regular basis.

About Sonja Mohlich

I am a freelance fashion stylist who has worked for magazines, TV productions, commercial work as well as a costume designer for feature films and presenting fashion segments on a very popular Irish breakfast show.

Sonja Mohlich purchased this farmhouse in 2008

Why Sonja Mohlich chose Malta

Because it's private, large and I love the open plan vibe and the high ceilings creating a sense of space. I love the private sunny pool and the private upstairs terrace with couch and dining area as well as the top roof for some serious sunbathing sessions!

What makes this farmhouse unique

Because it's private and quiet but very close to the main square in Xaghra when wanting some social activities and it's also close to other amenities.

A perfect place to stay in Xaghra!

  • 5 of 5

Sonia´s house is a perfect spot for a family -or several adults to stay if you wish to enjoy the quite village life of Xaghra. The house is clean, nicely furnished and has all the equipment that you may need, and it is big! We lacked nothing! We travelled with teenagers and they had plenty of space to hide and a very well functioning Wi-fi (important when you travel with teens). Of the three terraces, the bottom one is what we used the most, with the pool area and BBQ-facilities. The mid terrace -if I were to give any recommendation, I would move the furnitures from and move up on the roof terrace which is the perfect place to watch the sunset and chill in the evenings. Bedrooms are huge and comfortable and generous portions of towels are provided. There is also a washing machine so you will never be out of either towels or clothes during your stay. Sonia is the perfect host -she provided us with lots of information about what to do, and not the least where to eat, which we really have used! Very nicely and always on stand by is also the neighbor, Frances, who is there to assist with all sorts of questions and practical matters.

Beautiful and very spacious Farmhouse modern vibe

  • 5 of 5

Went for a wedding celebrating in Malta and decided to base our party on the beautiful Island of Gozo, the house exceeded my expectations, beautiful boutique style home with a nice sized pool. Really relaxed during the day by the pool and ate on the lovely Terrace in the evening when we stayed in. Great value shopping on the island. Plenty to do and great restaurants to visit. Our local haunt was D'venue on the main square minutes away from the farmhouse. Rented a car and explored the Island and beaches while sampling local restaurants. Plan to go back very soon.

An amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

The house was such a great place to stay at and very central. Clean, comfortable and ample space for the kids to have fun too! The pool is fabulous and so is the roof top. The great decor and beautiful furniture make you feel at home. As soon as you open the door, you literally fall in love with the place! For me and my family this is with out a doubt the best place to relax and unwind. We Loved it and will be back!

Lovely Time!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of four really enjoyed our stay at the farmhouse! We could chill around the pool or relax and dine with a glass of vino on the upstairs private terrace! The surroundings are so peaceful that it made it very easy for us to relax which was exactly what we were looking for! The amenities are very nearby and also Xaghra square has lots of nice restaurants and bars which was brilliant if we wanted to socialise a bit. If we felt like eating at home, we just turned on the gas BBQ and dined at the house! Will defo recommend this place to friends and family! Might come back again next year!

Was exactly what I had hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

Was exactly what I had hoped for! A spacious house with open plan down stairs and plenty of spaces to sunbath, chill out for 6 people! We loved just gathering around the pool in the morning and afternoon having a BBQ and in the evening after a gorgeous dinner on the very nearby square we had a few night caps on the first floor terrace! From the roof top hot tub we could see Rambla beach but decided just to stay in the house using the comforts of a private pool! Jo was so helpful in arranging keys and showing us the house making us instantly welcome! Will defo recommend the house to my friends and colleagues
