About the property

Farmhouse in Munxar, Gozo, Malta - Peaceful Location, 25 mins walk to Lively Coastal Village

Traditional, converted farmhouse located in a residential street in a small village in the centre of Gozo close to all Gozo has to offer. The airy, vaulted mill room lies at the heart of this simply converted farmhouse, providing a comfortable combined living area overlooking the private pool. The pool is large. The rooms are furnished with a mix of old and new pieces to reflect the character of the building itself. The kitchen is well equipped, with plenty of crockery and cooking utensils. Bedrooms are large, high-ceilings and airy. The roof terrace enjoys beautiful views over the valley and our neighbours, the sheep and goats! Being serviced with a 'drinks fridge', it provides the ideal place to enjoy a 'sun downer'. Please note floors and stairs throughout are tiled/stone.

About Virginia Bodily

We are both teachers who enjoy escaping to Gozo for a really relaxing holiday. We renovated the farmhouse when our family of five children were younger, so we made the pool extra large! Now the children have left home we enjoy the property mostly unaccompanied. The property is comfortable for a large or small party. You will find the Farmhouse booked for the major school holidays as we tend to stay here ourselves whenever we's so lovely!

Virginia Bodily purchased this farmhouse in 2006

Why Virginia Bodily chose Island of Gozo

We enjoyed the challenge of renovating and designing the Farmhouse to meet our needs. We like being part of the local community and have made several Gozitan friends in the area. We love being able to walk he cliffs in all seasons and the fact that we can walk into Xlendi and the Capital Victoria. There is a very good bus service through the village too.

What makes this farmhouse unique

A new supermarket has recently opened in the village which is very good and the little play park is super if you have young children. The pool in our farmhouse is very large.

Lovely holiday

  • 4 of 5

Farmhouse was very spacious and had everything exactly as we expected. Kitchen well equipped and living area spacious and airy. Loads of room everywhere and great to have so many bathrooms. Lovely pool very private. Had lovely holiday - only comment is that sofas could have been more comfortable and TV screen could have been a little larger.

Farmhouse in very good location - ideal being so near the local shop and within easy walking distance to Victoria. A little too far maybe walking into Xlendi and no chance walking back up that really steep hill.

Well placed for exploring Island.

Would recommend to anyone and would stay here again

A play park with open-air gym has been opened opposite the new supermarket which is open all day. A 25 minute walk takes you to the thriving coastal village of Xlendi with a variety of restaurants and bars. It offers boat trips, pedaloes, swimming in the bay, diving schools or walks along the cliffs. A 15 minute walk in the opposite direction takes you to Gozo's capital, Victoria. Gozo is small, with easy access to all areas, with a bus service to main attractions during the day.


Luqa airport on Malta serves Gozo. From the airport it takes a 30-40 minute taxi drive to the port. A regular ferry service operates to Gozo (with some night crossings) this takes 20 minutes. The Farmhouse is a 10 minute drive from the port. You can obtain contacts for transfers, or car hire, through local agents or through us.


The Farmhouse is situated in the centre of Gozo. All places of interest easily accessible.
