About The Owner

I am half Maltese and I have been visiting the Islands since birth and see it as my second home. I currently live and work in Dubai and visit Gozo as often as possible. I was born in the UK. I have a sister and brother both residing in the UK. My mother is Maltese and is an artist. My father is retired. My parents live on Malta and also own a property on Gozo. I have a little boy who adores Gozo and loves to visit his Nanna. Summer is a special time with our family on Malta and Gozo.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Malta

I always wanted a property on Gozo and had just one week in which to find one! I lost count of how many I saw. This was the last one and it was perfect. Great size, all the characteristics of a Malese home with all the mod cons. A large pool area which is private and in a great location. I just love Xaghra, its has all you need and makes the perfect hub to explore Gozo.

What makes this house unique

The Villa has all the characteristics of the old Maltese homes I remembered as a child. Its in a very quiet location has plenty of space and it just the perfect retreat from the busy life I lead. Xaghra is a delightful village, the square is a short walk from the property. I just love enjoying a glass of Gellewza over lunch with friends in one of the many restaurants in the square. Then returning to the villa for a swim!

Fantastic villa between the town centre and the be

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely early summer stay here, a deceptively big villa, well equipped and comfy. We just took the boy but with several lounge spaces and outdoor levels, including a nice pool, this place would be perfect for a bigger family or for three generations together.

Lovely property in relaxing location

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay at this property. It is an absolute TARDIS! Walking through the front door into a hallway that goes on and on certainly has the wow factor!!

We would definitely recommend the property to friends.

If we were to nit pick (and only because we loved the property so much) we would highlight the following:

Cushions on upstairs patio furniture could do with covers that could be washed at the end of a let as the rain has caused some of them to become stained (I appreciate that this is probably down to guests leaving them out in all weathers !! )

The pool furniture is lovely but could do with a sand back and re-stain (obviously due to the blazing sun !)

Inside there was some grouting in the kitchen by the sink, which needed touched up and a bit of a refresh to bring it up to the same high standards of the bathrooms.

All in all, a lovely holiday in a stunning property, and we will return!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed at this property and every visit has been wonderful. The villa is cavernous-plenty of room for everyone to find their own space. The pool is a great size and the terrace which overlooks the pool is spacious and well equipped with sun loungers, outdoor furniture and shading. The villa is a pleasant mix of old world Maltese charm and modern convenience, ie fully fitted kitchen, flat screen tv's, good wifi and all bedrooms ensuite. The villa is located in a peaceful and very convenient spot within easy strolling distance to the quaint village square where you can eat in lovely restaurants or visit for sundowners. The village isn't far from any of the island's attractions- definitely worth a visit is Xlendi, a small village with a picturesque bay and its Gelateria, serving some of the best ice-cream we have ever tasted! We are already booked for next year.

Lovely retreat with great pool

  • 5 of 5

Really nice villa in a fantastic location. Was a bit nippy when we stayed there so we had to light a fire but that, in itself, added to the charm. The village is lovely with some nice bars. We stayed with our two children and they loved the pool - even though it was cold. I think that it would be amazing in late spring or summer! The villa itself is well-equipped and very clean. I am thinking of booking again for the end of the summer holidays and taking my dad.

Brilliant house

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Gozo farmhouses many times over the past 8 years but I have to say this one was definitely the best, it was clean, very spacious, had everything we needed, the bedroom at the top of the house has a king size bed, magnificent, great pool and outside area. Really enjoyed the outside space relaxing reading one of the books from the house, there are numerous DVDs, cards, games etc..
