This beautifully restored farmhouse is located in a quiet location in the lovely town of Xaghra. The beautiful large entrance opens into a huge sitting room with dining room which both overlook the large pool area. The large outside area offers a pool, outside toilet, outside shower, sun loungers, outside dining facilities, table tennis table and a barbecue. Also on the ground floor is the kitchen, utility room and a toilet/shower room. The kitchen has all the modern facilities including washing machine, dishwasher and microwave. Upstairs there are three large double rooms (all en-suite) and one single room. Two of the double bedrooms have a balcony and overlook the pool area with fields opposite. There is also a large roof terrace offering some great views. The farmhouse comes with fans in all rooms.
We are a family of two adults and two children and first came to Gozo 11 years ago. We all fell in love with the place and then went back two months later and bought our farmhouse. We still go every year, at least once a year, and we never get bored! It is a home away from home. Both my husband and I are also both keen divers and Gozo offers some exceptional diving opportunities.
Katharine Wood purchased this farmhouse in 2003
We love Gozo and the town of Xaghra just had everything. It is also in a nice and quiet location.
The property is big and spacious, easy walking distance to town square with its restaurants and shops and also a quick minutes walk from a hotel with a bar and restaurant.
The farmhouse is beautiful - large, spacious, traditional and in a great location, Xaghra is a superb base. The next door neighbour is delightful, very friendly, and offered to take our recycling to the municipal dump.
The pool is great (maybe a little small for us - I will have to check that in future) - lovely and clean. For our stay the sun is on the pool/part of the pool until midday in late September, then is behind the building until about 4 pm when it reappears on the other side of the building. The girls were a bit frustrated with this as the shade chased them until there was no patio left to sit on. We did have a mixed bag weather wise, so most days we weren't at the villa in the afternoon, therefore not a problem. The island is too beautiful not to explore.
The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully spacious, as is all the downstairs living accommodation. We enjoyed playing table tennis, there is plenty of room to set the table up inside the villa as well as outside. An added bonus. The kitchen area is adequate and the welcome pack a blessing, thank you. A tea strainer would be a welcome addition for the loose tea that is provided!!
This was our first visit to Gozo, what a beautiful unspoilt island. The crossing from Malta is relaxing and hassle free, very well organised. As are the buses. We decided not to hire a car, and found the bus system extremely easy to use and very affordable. The views are stunning wherever you go, and all the main villages are easily accessibly by bus. It was quite fun navigating ourselves around and added to our stay. The villa is located just a short easy walk to the main square in Xaghra which was wonderful. We also enjoyed the marvellous barbecue at The Cornicopia (literally 2 minutes walk), and the views from there are stunning. Wonderful location, thank you.
The farmhouse itself has a few areas that require a little tlc, and that is the only reason I have given 4 out of 5. Having spoken to the owner who is getting these sorted, I would therefore definitely recommend to others.
The nearest beach is a lovely sandy beach approximately 2 kilometers away. There are also a number of beautiful small coves/beaches to discover around the island all a very short drive away as the island is small.
Nearest airport is Luqa Airport on Malta - approximate drive time from airport to ferry is about 45 minutes, ferry time 20 minutes, drive from ferry to farmhouse 10 mins. Car hire recommended and transfers can be arranged.
Nearest town is Xaghra - 5 minute walk to town centre with shops, restaurants, church, bank etc.
You can pretty much get everything you need in Xaghra town square which is a short 5 minute walk away. There is also a small hotel about a 2 minute walk away around the corner if you would like a drink/eat out.
